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. 
report Recommended by KokoroKaoru
Both food based anime with similar anime styles, cute girls as fanservice, and an intense focus on descriptions, food reactions, and Japanese food culture.  
report Recommended by TinyTabun
Both shows are isekai with a fantasy setting that also prominently feature cooking and food preparation as a main story element. 
report Recommended by mwalimu
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. 
report Recommended by abystoma2
Ordinary humans from our world are cooking in another world. Kakuriyo no Yadomeshi has a romantic plot as well. 
report Recommended by tzippurah
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.

Both make you hungry. Peacefull and relaxing animes that you have to see before eat.

Both shows has that nice relaxing Feel Good™ atmosphere to them, that will put you in a good mood with a smile on your face :)

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

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.

-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.

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. 
report Recommended by Paulo_Goncalves
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.

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. 
report Recommended by QuanekiQuen
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.. 
report Recommended by meowskie
Both Anime's are following the Idea of introducing something from our world to the Isekai world, where as GATE introduces military and Yaoi to the the Isekai world, Isekai Shokudou is about introducing earthly cuisine to the Isekai world. Both also has the Isekai vibes and i think are enjoyable to watch as we see how the people from the Isekai world reacts to the new things they are seeing.

Fantasy comedies when central element is a door that functions as a device through which the cast travels to different worlds. 
report Recommended by abystoma2
Isekai Shokudou is more Fantasy than Blend S and focusses more on being a maid, and food itself. It has the same gripping humor but has a less fanservice tone all over.  
report Recommended by boku_no_pervert
Both are cooking focused, this also has the foodgasms but less nudity, and more plot based good comedy as well

Episodic Fantasy Light Hearted Easy watch fun little plot similar feel when watching.

Both fantasy elements with a cast of unique characters, really relaxing anime. 
report Recommended by lalasel
Both have a nice atmosphere, super good-looking food and small stories and experiences that make the world feel just a little bigger. 
report Recommended by sagesaturn
Isekai shokudou has a very calming atmosphere and and the animation is great too! It's similar to Youkai apartment as it revolves around entities from the other world. If you like food, isekai, and slice of life, this is the perfect anime to watch.  
report Recommended by LunaMile
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.

Both series are isekai anime that take their own spins on the ideas, emphasizing a wide range of characters and creature, a homespun aesthetic, and a familial atmosphere for their casts of characters. 
report Recommended by RiverSorcerer
Both series take a fantastical slice of life approach to their respective genres (the school comedy for Demi-chan, the isekai narrative in Shokudou) and give the viewers a wide range of interesting and diverse characters to enjoy and relate to, complete with a human male protagonist that the fantastical characters look up to and respect. 
report Recommended by RiverSorcerer
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
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
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 shows focus on the enjoyment of food and drink. Takunomi doesn't have much of a plot, but Isekai Shokudou has a bit of ongoing plot about the characters who enjoy eating there. 
report Recommended by tzippurah
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.
