Karens Diner was so shit
Karens Diner was so shit, I went twice.
Unbelievably shit service as promised and I couldn’t have belly laughed any more if I tried!
With it’s brand new home recently opening in my home town Islington it was only right I checked out what Karens Diner was all about.
Rave reviews all over TikTok had already set a standard of shIt excellence if ever there was a thing… Oxymoron much?
I was compelled to go there and dine with waitresses giving me side eye, shouting at me to move and naming me ‘TURKEY TEETH’
So I went twice in literally the space of a week and both times I was greeted with “ooh someones been to Turkey” I was half expecting the obvious to be pointed out, but the waitresses really know how to grate on you, I kept hearing it non stop.
“OOH SOMEONE’S BEEN TO TURKEY”
The food served is your typical American diner food, huge burgers, fries, chicken wings and shakes.
I was given a paper dining hat to wear that had ‘STRAIGHT OUTTA REHAB‘ written on it. TBH I wasn’t offended at that, I kinda took it as a compliment as I imagine they had fused NWA with Amy Winehouse and given me that slogan, complimenting my music taste – Rap/Hip Hop and Amy Jade Winehouse… Even though they knew nothing about me, Sorry Karen’s, you failed to insult me with this LOL!
The waitresses really do their job well, dirty looks, throwing napkins at you, telling you to get up and get your own mayo, honestly the worst service you’d ever experience in your life and I loved it.
“YOU CAN GO TURKEY TO GET YOUR TEETH DONE BUT YOU CANT GET UP TO GET YOUR OWN MAYO?”
*GIVES SIDE EYE*
The hosts will get you up in front of everyone to play games that result in you winning sweet fa. It’s all good fun and entertaining. Luckily I was not dragged up, the key to my success was looking in everyones eye and not putting my head down, hoping to not be picked. The more you try to hide, the more likely you are to be chosen, like my sister. Haha!
Overall the food was decent, but honestly I was more than happy to go back the second time purely for the insults and banter. Ok, maybe for the cheesy fries too.
If you decide to visit and celebrate your birthday be prepared to be told to FUCK RIGHT OFF several times.
Huge THANK YOU/F**K OFF to the waitresses I had the displeasure of being served by, they did what they had to do, very well.
You absolutely get what you pay for, standard diner food and absolute shit service.
10/10 defo recommend.
P.s – Don’t forget to tip your waitress/waiter – they will happily shout at you that they accept cash tips.
Stay safe, fuck right off and take care,
