I don't know if the Diner on Wuyuan Road is definitely or temporarily closed, but the newest branch at the Lu One mall doesn't make any justice to the original one.
We were pretty classic this time: a burger with fries (have to order separately) and The American all - day - breakfast. The burger “shrinks” like a new pair of jeans after the first wash. Pickles on the side, why? Just place them inside…The American platter is also regular, the bacon was crispy but the sausage patty was very oily and tasteless.
The staff is friendly and the service is fast. The place is tailored like the former Diner but the lightning is too bright, I wouldn't go there for a date. The Wuyuan location was cozier, the food tasted better and the portions were bigger as well. Hope they upgrade the place and the food as it used to be in the original version so we can keep enjoying a good quality American breakfast all day.
