Mobile based culinary recommendation system has received significant attention in recent mobile application research . Technique for Order of Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) has regained popularity in supporting multi-criteria decision making due to this method allowing inclusion of many factors and criteria into the decision making process. Previous works on mobile based scenario culinary recommendation system reveal that TOPSIS stand out from other recommendation approaches like AHP and Fuzzy by providing a lightweight computation algorithm that have promising performance in time complexity. However, computing a culinary recommendation using TOPSIS has own limitations especially in the menu judgment processes due to the alternatives priority only include personal preferences for recommendation. In such a culinary recommendation system scenario, users more likely search culinary menus in group instead of alone. This research aims to develop a culinary recommendation system based on group decision support system (GDSS) using TOPSIS that possible to calculate a recommendation by using group preferences instead of personal preferences. The experimental results show that the overall functional of proposed GDSS gives better recommendation result. GDSS using TOPSIS have 100% rank consistency for 6 group of users with 5 combination of menus. The accuracy testing shows that 83,33 % recommendation of GDSS TOPSIS are match with real user preferences. Furthermore, it can be run well in various type of Android smartphone.
