First off we were impressed with the decor and the whole layout of this place. After doing a long car journey we were looking for a nice lunch but something different to the norm. We were promptly seated in quite a empty restaurant with fast service, I wasn't sure if I wanted the hot sauce on my hotdog but the... More

Went here expecting to be served a big fat juicy burger instead got a thin tasteless substitute. You'd be better off going to Burger King you would definitely get a much taster burger and it would cost less.

food was rubbish, we had 2 microwave hot dogs and chips which came to £18, woman serving was rude and arguing with customers next to us who were clearing in the right; making them pay for food they claimed not to have ordered. Grumpy employees no customer service, food was 1/10. Visited purely believing it was Ed's diner like in... More

We stopped by for lunch because of the Dr Who connection and pretty quickly wished we hadn't. The food was really poor quality thrown together with very little care. If you're here because you're a Whovian pop in and take a look but run away from the food you clever people.

Decor is better than the food. Tried a chilli dog with French fries. Disappointed with the hot dog and small portion of chilli and the fries were cold. A bit pricey for such simple food.

Hubby had wings with chilli & chips he said wings were lovely but failed to find any meat in the chilli! I had the corvette burger which was delicious and... More

My fiancée and I are massive Whovians, coming to Cardiff for the Dr Who Experience. After hunting for a suitable place to eat, we clocked the diner which has hosted the two most recent Doctors and four of his companions - naturally we had to eat here. Aside from the obligatory Whovian photo and the extremely friendly service, it was... More

Visited for my fiance's Birthday on Christmas Eve and told the staff that it was his birthday and they brought out a small birthday cake with a candle in and sang happy birthday all of this for no extra charge, perfect end to his day and made him smile and he...

Went to the place because the fiancee is a massive whoian and sat at dr who's table. Food was a little pricey and you pay before you receive the food, which once we received it you can understand why. Had burgers and chilli and chips. The burger meat was as low as quality as they could get and still call... More

We visited here as an adult and two 10-year-olds after visiting the Dr Who Experience. The decor is amazing, and the service was excellent, the lady gave the kids chocolate coins, pointed out the Tardis doors by the bathroom, and although someone was sitting at table 11, was happy for us to go around taking photos where the Doctor had...
