If you are hungry and you don't want to go wrong on your food for an hour lunch break, it is best to go to The Diner 22. My favorite is pesto pasta. You need to walk in an alley to get to the place though. ;)

We had tried to get into the highly rated Trattoria Verdi, but it was shut on the day we visited (during Chinese National Holiday). Diner 22 is next door and it was definitely our second choice but no regrets - the place is excellent. Staff were friendly, helpful and all appeared to speak good English. The menu was varied and...

We went 4 times to the one in the city center. It was always a pleasure. Excellent food, focused menu with a dish for every palate. We will definitely be regulars. Highly recommended.

Diner now has 3 locations in QD, May 4 Square, Marina City and Taigu square. quality and service has been uneven, ordered food does not arrive as described on menu, menu shows a 500ml beer, and instead given a 250ml at same price, etc...Betty, at Taigu at least addressed these issues. Regarding food, burgers always seem undercooked, go to canvas... More

Their pizza is nice and thin with some decent toppings. The environment and food is overall mediocre. Also, don't expect their food to be consistent across all their locations. The Diner22 in my opinion tastes the best. However, the other locations, especially the one in Marina City is horrible. I ordered chicken wings and it came with no sauce and... More

I prefer authentic foods, but friends will be friends and we ended up going to Diner 22 on numerous occasions. The food is decent western food for China. The seabass was decent though they only have a couple fish per day, so be early and not everything on the menu is always available due to the chef's desire for fresh... More

the decor is cool, the food nothing to write about, but the beer, brewed next door, I think, is fabulous.

After much travel in China I can say this is very average Western food, but decent for China. The mushroom soup was the only item I really enjoyed. The decor is nice and modern. The service is all over the place, but the servers do try. The city has very limited Western food options so Diner 22 is acceptable. I... More

If you want a burger or chicken sandwich then this is one of your best bets in Qingdao. But the competition is not up to much so it doesn't have to be very good. Ok but nothing special.

Colleagues and I spent 1 month in Qingdao. We discovered the Diner 22 and it became one of our favorites. Excellent atmosphere and staff. Food is very good also. The lasagna and the beef tenderloin were our favorites. The Diner 22 has a mix of local and western customers.
