Friendly staff and good food

Shared lunch with a colleague. Enjoyed the helpful staff. I had a very tasty Greek Salad for lunch. It was fresh and flavourful

I enjoyed a Diner's Chicken Clubhouse Sandwich with broiled tender chicken, ham, cheese, tomato, lettuce and mayo with a side of crisp fries. Service was attentive and Dinner was small and cozy.

M S Diner has been one of our favourites through 3 owners in the family and remains one of the best value restaurants for lunch and dinner in the area. Love the pita melts and certainly the best gush and chips in town. The family's Greek origins are evident on the menu and the specials are well worth trying.
