The food here is great for making American diner food internationally with somewhat limited resources. I was shocked to see a Chinese employee set out perfect American cake doughnuts after frying as all China has is the yeast doughnuts. Their breakfast is good and the...More

I went there for lunch, by myself, and everyone in there greeted me with a smile. The food reminded me of the real western diners from home and the prices were surprisingly low. Definitely stop by.

Nice place if you want to take a break from Chinese food. We had a couple of sandwiches, the grilled chicken sandwich and the breakfast egg and bacon one. They were good although a bit pricey for China.

Also known as the American Diner, this is the place to go if you yearn for a "taste of home". The burgers are great, and they also offer other great American food selections. Very fluent English is also spoken here. Enjoy.

This was a cute little place (and one of the few open in off season) that we stopped into. The restaurant itself is looking a little tired, but the staff were very nice and made a wonderful hamburger! They also have events on their second...More

It is a good dinner style restaurant with a wide range of food available. I had a blue cheeseburger and it was delicious but it was kind of small. My fiance had a pork sandwich which was slightly bigger but small nevertheless.
