Same kind of setting, with one centered on a Japanese restaurant/cafeteria and the other centered on a Japanese pub. Both have their doors connected to another world.

Both anime take an untraditional spin on cooking show. While Shokugeki no Souma does it in battle shounen style, Isekai Shokudou does it in isekai style. Both feature detailed animation depicting food, detailed description of the taste and of course, foodgasms.

Both are slow paced, episodic, and have a "feel good" theme. They both take place in a "hole in the wall." While Bartender explains how to make the drink, Isekai doesn't explain how the dish was made.

Relaxing anime about periodically enjoying simple but delicious food in eatery. While Wakako-zake is pure slice of life, Restaurant from Another World has a fantasy element to it.

-easy, slow paced show -episodic -a few "main" characters but a focus on side characters -quality sound track -a feeling that the show could be very different but consciously chooses to be a simple story that focuses on human interaction and simple feelings. Both Isekei Shokuduo and Natsume Yuujichou give you a sense of a greater world that what you expect, yet they limit your view into that world. this can either be infuriating or enjoyable and happily both fall in the latter category. If you like one, I would recommend the other as a similar, worthwhile story.

These two shows involve people or mythical creatures from other worlds savoring the flavor of hidden surprises that our modern day world has to offer.

Fantasy comedies when central element is a door that functions as a device through which the cast travels to different worlds.

i know its weird recommending Aria to Isekai Shokudou but watching it reminds me alot of Aria. the slow phase story, the characters, the beautiful scenery, making costumer happy, learning some of their background story. etc. just the feeling to it is really similar. if Isekai Shokudou is a cooking theme Aria is the touring counter part of it..

Both have the same male seiyuu who does the main character's voice, and the same amount of fantasy and magic genre, it also share the same plot were there is is portal that leads to another realm, the only differences was one has and action genre where the theme was about every otaku's dream come true, while the other has has that food porn theme in it. 
report Recommended by Whoahoho
They both have that slice of life episodic feel. Meeting different regions of people. Not having much of a backbone of a story but the story of each encounter.  
report Recommended by Takishima_Shin
Both are animes with theme of restaurant Both have a light animation that does not make them tiresome to see 
report Recommended by WaTarri
Both make you hungry. Peacefull and relaxing animes that you have to see before eat. 
report Recommended by ElTrapiJorge
This may seem like a stretch, but hear me out. Both share a similar episodic nature, with each episode featuring new characters coming to an other-worldly place (be it a restaurant or a bar) and being attended to (be it for a nice meal or a game-of-death). The respective locations are also overseen by a seasoned male server (the Owner of Western Restaurant Nekoya and Decim the bartender) who has recently taken a newcomer female under his wing (Aletta and Chiyuki). The differences arise from respective themes and tone. While Isekai Shokudou is a light and relaxing show, Death Parade is much darker and somber.  read more

both are isekai with heavy food elements Kakuriyo has a romance element with connected plot but Isekai Shokudou is just a slice of life with each episodes focusing on the customers with a slight thread of a connected plot 
report Recommended by Paladin23
This is the same thing. The difference is that the isekai every episode it was divided in two. Each segement, a different world, different person (with some problem) and each one order some kind of food. Here we've got the same thing. Different people entering and talking about their problems as they eat different food. One deals usually Isekai dealt with main course while this one deals with cafe, cookies, ice cream and such.

Both are cooking focused, this also has the foodgasms but less nudity, and more plot based good comedy as well 
report Recommended by UKnowAnimeIsLife
Both have the same edibles on the menu, but one was a Food Porn with a dash of fantasy while the other is a Cocktail Porn with some comedy. 
report Recommended by Whoahoho
Both are relaxing, non-dramatic fantasy anime.

Both shows are about serving good food to others and making them happy. The biggest difference is that in Sweetness and Lightning, the person meals are made for is the same whereas with Restaurant to Another World, they are made for different people in every episode. Both shows have a laid back atmosphere that is all about bonding through meals. 
report Recommended by GridironOtaku
Both shows present an undercovered from lay people's eyes place, such as cafe and a resturant which gives a warm feeling of magic and mystery. In both shows every customer become equal: no racial or social diversity, lizard folks, demons, dragons, humans, robots are all the same: if you're hungry the chef will feed you up, if you want to chat - take a cup of coffee and chat with anyone without limitations. Speaking about conversations. Both show's characters speak a lot and it makes you smile, in Isekai Shokudou characters express their amazement of fantastic food, which is regular in our world, but in Eve  read more

Relaxing anime about cooking/baking with monsters involved, be it customers or the chef. In both anime, the protagonist is an owner of a food establishment. 
report Recommended by abystoma2
Both anime about restaurant customers who are eat unknown dishes of eastern and western cuisine. In Piace: Watashi no Italian customers are people, and in Isekai Shokudoucu stomers are fantastic creatures from another world. 
report Recommended by Kyosuke_Kosaka
Surprised no one else recommended this. These shows's have their main focus on the food that's being made and how delicious it appears to be. Isekai Shokudou focuses on mainly Western dishes while Koufuku Graffiti focuses on more Japanese dishes. Both are great slice of life shows that are relaxing to watch. 
report Recommended by Drew
They both share the theme of people from different time eras or worlds that stumble upon modern day Japan and experiencing the things they offer for the first time much to their delight & surprise. One focuses on bathing culture whilst the other focuses on modern day food. 
report Recommended by IchiroEX
Although stories are quite different they both have the same tranquility. Flying witch is funnier than Isekai Shokudou but both of them will put a feel-good smile on your face. 
report Recommended by mandorallen
Both are shows about food and are divided in two segements per episode. Each episode is a different food (or Ramen). Althought Isekai has a more segment plot driven (each segment usually deals with a different character) and this one (Ramen Koizumi) we follow Koizumi and her bunch of unwanted wannabe friends as they try to impress Koizumi while eating different types of Ramen.
