This is exactly like a Denny's in the US. Probably imports everything on the menu, that's the reason it is SO expensive. I saw on the menu that the steak and eggs cost $27 plus tax, tip.More

In the States, Denny's is just a regular diner with plenty of options for a reasonable price. I find it extremely overpriced here, it's ridiculous. I only go on special occasions, every once in a while. This is disappointing because although the food is very...More
