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.

    It's all about the Honey chicken which is plentiful and yummy! Drinks are pricey so be warned however you are dining in Portobello Road so to be expected. The lemon meringue pie is to die for and easily shared. Great service too dining here is defo a firm favourite for us!

    Service was terrible. Coffee took over 30 minutes, then a power outage further delayed our food. Waitstaff were rude, unhelpful, and we refused to pay service charges. Their attitude towards their job was evident and affected their performance. Despite positive reviews, I'm hesitant to recommend this place. Food was average, nothing special too. Music was too loud that it’s even hard to talk . Very stupid experiences.

    With the 50% off, I think it’s really worth the money. The service for the food was really quick, but it took a long time to receive the bill which was a bit disappointing. The quality of the food was nice.

    Food was terrific. The service, unfortunately, was completely chaotic. Very, very hard to get any service; to the point that we had to walk out and ask to pay on our way out - we’d asked for the bill three times. Staff seem rather forgetful, but are friendly.

    Very generous discount given with valid cinema ticket. Staff friendly, efficient and capable. My steak was fine unfortunately my companions wasn't looking around this was the exception to the rule that was dealt with by a further, generous, discount which was unexpected and gratefully received.

    Nice vibe, good location, pleasant service. The food was ok - lacking flavour and portions small for cost, eggs underdone, small coffee cups etc. My daughter asked to go there for her 21st birthday breakfast and we left feeling disappointed.

    Excellent! I can confirm the positive reviews already received as the food was absolutely amazing. The chefs and waiters were professional and down to earth and this fab team added to my overall experience at Electric Diner. My only small critique is a reiteration of some of the previous reviews which is that the music is a bit loud and could be turned down slightly. I look forward to visiting again.😊

    Unfortunately we arrived for our reservation to a number of menu items being unavailable, these things happen. However we then started to proceed to request a number of other items which it transpired half of the ingredients were missing so unable to be cooked or prepared as advertised. Given this situation we had no choice but to leave without eating and had to venture to an alternative restaurant and queue given we had no reservation. A disappointing start to our new year which is a shame as the Electric has always been okay before. In fairness to the staff they were very apologetic and understanding of our decision to leave.

    The venue is really good and the food was nice. It was annoying that my son was waiting at a table at the front on his own for 15 minutes because when he arrived after us he was told we hadn’t arrived. I think the waiter who led us to the table didn’t take any notice of our booking even though we gave him details

    Had to ask for waiter a few times. We had burgers, ribs and chicken/ waffle. Are awful. Ribs were cold and dry. Burgers not at all good. Worst of all the chicken waffle arrived 15 min late after asking three times. Then there were only four small chicken nuggets on waffle!! Not even pieces of chicken. The whole experience was frankly terrible.
