Karen's is an interactive diner and an absurdly fun experience. At Karen's you will be greeted and waited upon by rude waiters and forced to play a variety of games.

You can expect good food, good fun and a dining experience like you've never had before. Let us know if it's your birthday, if your name is Karen and for the love of Karen don't ask to speak to the manager....

​P.S if your name is actually Karen we will give you a free drink - bring some ID.

    Were expecting rude service, but the service was pretty good actually. It was my birthday, no song was sung, nothing special happened to commemorate it. The rudest thing we had was that the glasses were slammed. That was the start and the end of it. The waiter was very nice, she sat next to us, took our order and came back later to take our order for drinks. The person delivering the food to us was great, he didn't say anything, or pay attention to anything. He just gave us our orders, placed it nicely in front of us and gave us cutlery too. We were basically entertaining ourselves for the night, nothing like TikTok or Instagram, maybe Karen's Diner has lost its shine in Auckland.

    Food was pretty yummy. Service was obviously terrible, but as to have expected. Long waiting times for drinks, etc. I thought it would be more entertaining than it was though. We got sworn and a few times, which was quite fun. But most the time just sat there with nothing else going on….. could have been sat in any other diner/ restaurant and had the same experience. Overall pretty boring and underwhelming. The concept of the diner sounds good, but just wasn’t executed very well. #callmekaren

    A group of 6 of us went to Karen's diner to eat last night and we all had such a blast! The waiters were not only rude but very funny too so definitely lived up to our expectations, the game they play with the whole restaurant however was the best part. Such a laugh and seeing everyone get involved made it such a fantastic experience

    Understanding the whole concept of Karen's Diner and the "poor service" you should expect, one would however think that sanity should prevail at some point. When making the booking, the individual on the phone who took our booking did not find it necessary to inform us that our booking was being made for 30 minutes before the restaurant closed. We got there had 15 minutes to order, in fact half our table were refused the option to order, and we did not get to fully experience what Karen's Diner had to offer as a result. We were really looking forwards to the shakes but as mentoned above, we're unable to as we had 30 minutes to eat and 1 drink and leave. The few that did get to eat were happy with their meals, burgers are really good, good value for money as well. We definitely had a good laugh, again, knowing what it is that you are getting yourself into. Would have loved to have had the full experience, if only we were properly informed making the booking.

    Only 1 ‘karen’ staff on a Saturday night with about 2 other tables dining in at ‘prime time’ at 7pm. The food was average and kinda over priced. The Rude service was good at times, could’ve been more rude as our expectations were high. Vibes were off didn’t feel like a restaurant I think because as a table was getting served everyone went quiet to listen to the ‘karen service’. Think this place is good for a one time experience and I probably wouldn’t come again

    Can't help but feel disappointed in this experience and food. The entertainment value stopped at the door and once seated. Drinks took forever after a gentle reminder. One meal never came neither did one patrons drink. They ran out of water cups and cutlery I had to go find some. I do think that basics like cutlery and napkins should be basic service. The ribs and wings were great but burgers very dry. Having been once before we have come to the conclusion the experience is not worth the hype. Over rated and now know its best to spend that kind money on a fine dining experience where food and service are worth a night out. Definitely won't be back.

    It's Karens, you know what you are walking into and it was great in sense of that. However the food, was average at best, they had no milkshakes or floats (core reason we wanted to go) the burger was average at best and that was from 4 people. Chicken wings where good.

    We were expecting a rude experience but left underwhelmed. Staff were not interested in engaging with us and the only thing the staff did was move a chair or two and turn off the lights when we went to the toilet. No games or interactions… and the food was average at best. We expected more 😞

    We tried out Karen’s diner after hearing amazing reviews about the one in Australia despite my sister having a seperate bad experience which she ended up walking out. We got seated straight away but waited 30 minutes to be served then another 15 minutes to get our order put through. It took one hour to get our drinks and food ( including a glass of water) we had nobody come up to our table in this one hour other than to take our order. The place wasn’t very busy but only had one waitress who was a trainee. The food was average and expensive, which would have been understandable if we actually got the experience of Karen’s diner. This place comes down to bad management, one waitress doing the whole floor on a Saturday night at 730pm with the host helping out at times. The duty manager was stuck on the bar (which he was pretty funny when he bought the drinks over) and nobody was running the place. My husband has 10 years working in hospitality including management and this is the worst service he has seen and not in a good way.

    Disaster. Great idea, poor execution by staff. It's supposed to be a fun experience but was far from it. A mate swore back at them for a laugh and wasn't served any food at all. Understand the concept and it was funny at first until we realized our mate wasn't going to get any food and our only options were to leave or eat in front of her. That's pathetic and not fun for anybody. A couple came in 25 minutes before the kitchen closed and were not served at all. They sat there the whole time and eventually got up and left because the kitchen had closed. Again, understand the concept but bare minimum expectation is for the staff to take our orders and serve food, however rude they want to be! That's what we signed up for. The restaurant is not going to succeed if you're not going to serve people. We saw a lot of money walk out the door for no good reason. That's not a good experience for anyone, ever. Again, it's supposed to be fun and crap service is expected but this was beyond enjoyable. Worst part. FOOD WAS BELOW AVERAGE and very overpriced: Dry ribs and wings Soggy burgers $6 for a standard can of Coke I would never go back here. We left hungry and disappointed.

    The waiters at Karen’s diner were amazing at doing their roles, and definitely deserve credit. We had an interesting time with the people next to us who were live-streaming the experience and filming us, we were there to enjoy our time not to be filmed but other than that, it was great!
