We always visit for lunch and dinner - the food and service is great. We thought we would try breakfast but were really disappointed. Food choices were limited and despite asking for bacon to be excluded we ended up still paying the full price -...not fair since there were very few options without bacon and no kiddies breakfast menu. Not good for breakfastMore

What was intended as a family night out turned into a disaster. Our family looked forward to our rib special evening, but our experience was jaded by the poor management of an exceptionally rowdy table where the alcohol flowed. Despite the obvious displeasure this table...was causing, management was completely ineffective in dealing with the alcohol infused behavior. Unless management finds a way to maintain their family friendly status we will rather take our business elsewhere.More

The Diner really, really has the Best of the Best ribs ever!! You will not be disappointed! We enjoy the atmosphere of dinning there but also their rib takeaway combo’s are also great. Especially the super practical XL boxes that the ribs come in. Highly...recommend!! If you pass by Krugersdorp, be sure not to miss this treat!More

The food here is always of high standard. They do have a shorter menu at present. Bookings essential at present.

I think things are slipping a bit. We are regular patrons and their beer ribs have been the best for a few years. My 9 yo son insisted on trying The Excalibur himself but today I think we were a bit disappointed. The fact that...downstairs is always reserved is a frustration, I don’t feel like reserving for 3 people and the service at the top is significantly different. This should be addressed but more importantly today my beef ribs were tough and not up to scratch. I kept going and gave no feedback in the restaurant but will watch this closely! The chicken remained good. The team will need to stay on top of the kitchen I think.More

Ordered take away (prawns) through the Mr D app (R550.00). Received the food and it stank so much I threw it out!! If this is the food they offer take away clients I can't imagine the food you get as a sit down is better....Stay away at all cost !!!!More

I drive past this restaurant often and has heard good feedback om their burgers and ribs. My wife and I went their on a Thursday evening unknown to us iwe had to make a booking , but that was not a problem and we were...taken to our table . For starters we ordered spicy calamari and deep fried prawns , must say both dishes made our taste buds sing . When it came to order Mains we then found out that Thursday is ribs night , obviously we ordered a kg of ribs for each , had we known this we definitely would not have ordered starters . When the ribs came they were huge and we knew a doggie bag would come into play. The ribs were every bit as amazing as we heard, the meat just fell from the bone and it was tender and juicy every bit as I imagined ribs should be , these were the best ribs I have eaten at any restaurant and I understood why a booking had to be made and why they are a current finalist in the Best Ribs in Jo'Burg. With friendly service and great food the Diner will definitely see us again. Next time I will try their Hamburger . Well done to The DinerMore
