Adjacent to one of the oldest cinemas in London and downstairs from the Electric House, The Diner opens at 8am for breakfast, switches to the all-day menu at 12pm and keeps serving until late at night (you can drop in for dinner until midnight Monday to Saturday or 10pm Sunday).

The bar is open until late every day - offering up a wide range drinks including decadent American style milkshakes, smoothies and juices, a wide range of beers and ales, and great seasonal cocktails.

The Diner is all about unfussy combinations of the best ingredients; quick, friendly service and food that is sent straight from the kitchen as and when it’s ready. There’s booth and bar seating, and a specially chosen soundtrack played from the Diner’s reel-to-reel machine.

    Overall a good experience! Staff were friendly and helpful, even when it all felt a bit chaotic. My only critique is the music. It is way too loud. It’s a small space already and I could barely hear my server. Honestly brought the experience down. It’s 12 PM on a Sunday, we don’t need the music that loud.

    We went to Electric Diner on a Saturday morning. Huge pancakes, excellent full English Breakfast and superb French Toast! Our teenage sons wanted pancakes: one portion, as per menu, with chocolate sauce and bananas and the other with maple syrup and strawberries. The waitress was very accommodating and suggested different toppings for the pancakes. Really good food, not cheap but we considered it good value because of the location (Portobello Road, perfect when you need a break from walking around Portobello Road Market). One thing to note: we had booked a table online for 11am to have brunch. However, when we arrived, we were told that the Brunch Menu was only available from 12 noon. In the end, for us, this was not a problem as we found something we liked on the breakfast menu.

    Music was ridiculously loud, to the point where we couldn’t hear each other across the table. People at the next tables also said the same. Upon asking the waitress about it she said it’s a frequent problem and they have trouble hearing the guests. I asked her and the manager to turn it down which they did for it to only be turned back up again to stupidly loud levels. When I asked again they said the music is controlled by a DJ playing for a club in the floor above! Absolutely baffling setup?! It’s clearly a problem for the guests and all the staff, fix it!

    It was mostly a fun time. The background music was loud. Made it hard to speak. We did then tell the waiter to lower down the music and she did. Not a bad experience. Drinks were over priced for what they tasted like.

    Great place with a really nice brunch. But they continuously have issues with the service. The lady at reception is relatively unpleasant and then, once you are seated, the waiting time to order at the beginning, or later, foe top ups or more food, are just excruciating. No one takes ownership and you end up waiting forever. It’s a shame because this makes them having less rounds of customers and less business. But the food, the ambience make it for everything else.

    I have visited Electric many times over the years. On this occasion I was disappointed having made a reservation a few weeks prior. We were seated as a two on small side tables. I asked if it would be possible to be seated in a booth. I was told it wasn’t possible due to reservations. But the whole evening most of the booths were empty. Won’t return.

    Service level was absent. Waitress forgot half of our order or didn’t bother writing it down. After being reminded of it, still forgot to put it in the system and ask the kitchen to prepare it. What was supposed to be a nice brunch on Sunday turned into a frustrating experience. I suggest finding a better Americana style diner

    Very disappointed by the electric yesterday. Poor service. So many things missing from the menu. Worst cobb salad (no bacon, no cheese, but instead lots of onions and cold slices of potatoes with skin on… I mean come on, if you don’t have the ingredients to make a cobb salad then don’t put it on the menu!).

    On our fathers day, half of the main menu, some sides were out and it was only 6pm. They could have offer us a drink or something to keep us on the table but we end up leaving the place. Main host wasn't even around it was the waitress who try the save the day. Also looking at the menu, (food looks great) you have to order a main meal in some cases with no side at all, with the side price goes up drastically.

    We went there for the joint birthday brunch of me and my daughter. I am glad as I booked a being where it is, it's definitely a popular busy place. We were shown to our table quickly and didn't wait long to be served. The only hiccup was having to wait a bit for one of our brunches, it would have been nice if they had come out together. But when they were both on our table it was good value for money. We couldn't manage it all but there was a box option available to take it away. If we hadn't of been travelling after, we would have done this. Didn't get to try the dessert so don't know if that's good too? It was nice that we were surprised with a complimentary drink for our birthdays, that was a nice touch, thank you, little things like that do say a lot about a place and go a long way. The only thing that spoilt it for me was that our table for two was so close to two other small tables for two that it made sitting down and getting up very tight and difficult, for us and the people on the other two tables and it made our meal feel like it was being overlooked. It was a shame because they had some larger booths in there which were being used for tables of fours and twos. It would have been nice to have had one of those and to be able to space out a bit more and for a more personal cosy feel

    Poor service from the start. Had to seat ourselves after being left at the bar (with a reservation). My pancake then arrived burnt and plated on what can only be described as a children’s plate. Decaf coffee was more milk than coffee too! I’d been here a number of times before yesterday and has always been great. I definitely won’t be returning after yesterday’s shambles.

    The service was friendly was just at the right level. Due to a problem with receiving lemonade from a supplier (something the world is currently dealing with so it was not their fault) they had to 'create' lemonade for me in order to make a shandy. They were attentive and sweet and I would highly recommend coming here for a nice meal. Full marks.
