When I'm in Taipei for meetings or to hang out with friends, I always try to make it over to the Diner for breakfast or brunch. They cook up a good eggs benedict and the burgers are quite tasty. I've had their breakfast burrito and it's good too. There is usually a wait if you go during peak times so... More

I have been to this place couple of times. I like it. It's not expensive, food quality is good. Large menu they have almost everything u can think what you can get in diner. It's bad that they close early. If they can open 24/7 this place can be a big hit.

I am not vegan myself, but we went with a friend that is. We wanted to order and just take away things that she cant eat, but they were so inflexible about it. They couldnt change the french toast in the set for regular bread instead, such simple thing. As a non-vegan person, is good enough.

We had soup, smoothies, hamburgers and fried steak during dinner time. The food was as good as we expected base on its well known reputation for brunch. Kind staffs. Despite the taste, we had a good time with friends.

Diner has been always stable with good quality food, good service as well. They have new menu and drinks for the summer, go check it out. 我不懂為什麼評論一定要有中文,所以,我加了中文。然後還得要50個字,所以我正在很努力得湊出五十個中文,不知道不會中文的外國人士該怎麼辦?

The Diner rarely lets me down, especially the business lunch is quite a good bargain. Booking via EZTable is really handy and trouble-free.

Almost everything is above average - the food, the service, the price. Benedic eggs and omelette are nice, and business lunch is great bargain as well.

In terms of décor, The Diner hit the spot with the young and trendy crowd. That being said, whilst the seats look great, they are awful to sit on. I'm referring to the seats that sag in the middle. Anyhow, The Diner at Xinyi is VERY busy almost all the time, and I strongly suggest you to book in advance.... More

We made our way to the Diner in Taiwan from Taoyuan. It was certainly worth the trip. I wanted to make it there for breakfast and to find out they serve it all day long. I had the Chicken Fried Steak and it was pretty good. It needed to be pounded out a little more but still tasted great. The... More

Just got in to the restaurant after having waited for an hour with my two kids. The restaurant is only about half full and plenty of tables for clientele. As we came back to check for our place in line, we noticed a couple of other shops of interest… should have tried them out instead. Turns out the scrap of... More
