Diesel cafe is a nice place to chill out with friends. Located in the heart of the city, the ambience is good, service is good. Food has variety both Chinese and local cuisine. Liquor is served. One of the popular joints for students to hang out.

A visit to this restaurant has been the highlight of my trips to Mangalore every time. The last time I went there I had their lasagna which was excellent. The service is quite prompt and the staff polite. The crowd and the ambience is also quite good. All in all a great restaurant to dine or to just hang out.
