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.
A newly-opened shop in a new shopping community - Zhonghaihuanyuhui near Xintiandi. Didn't have a chance to try the original Diner on Wuyuan Lu before it closed, very happy to have this new one in my regular go-to.
Food: all day breakfast (the American), biscuits & gravy, French toast (Fun) and pumpkin pie.
Drink: Bailey milkshake and americano.
People: two girls and a late-comer.
All day breakfast should be labelled for two people, with two scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, hash browns and toast. I was very impressed by the bacon, as crispy as crackers. However, calling the sausage a cutlet might be more accurate. A way too-spiced cutlet; we left it as is.
Fun French toast could be softer but chocolate and peanut butter are always life-savers.
Pumpkin pie was underwhelming, and salty.
The milkshake sucks up all your calorie quota, made totally out of ice cream.
The restaurant is on the ground floor by Madang Lu. Great lighting in the restaurant thanks to the big windows on each side. It’s very photography-friendly, with good street view and good winter sunbathing.
