Excellent food and decent service. You do need to be wary of the small portions though, such as the Mexican food. The best food there are the burgers, hands down. Next are the pastas (especially the zucchini one) and the other meaty dishes. The owner is very friendly and can speak English, and so can his wife. Their servers (mostly) cannot. They have menus in both English and Chinese, and have been serving food here for over 7 years. One thing you’ll notice is that they’re clean, something that other restaurants here aren’t.

After 12 days of noodles and rice, Serendipity Diner was a lovely experience. So charming and delicious we went a second night. Everything was yummy...burgers, salads, apple pie, and the gin & tonics!!! The background soundtrack added to the ambience and they have a large menu and friendly staff. Definitely recommend if you need some western food!

I ate here 2 times and was impressed with both. Good menu selection. Pies and milkshakes are excellent

The chicken stew fantastic. Service fast and friendly.

They do get very busy though.

Highly recommended

We've ordered a sandwich and a hamburger, both were really tasty, the only complain about the food is that the potato chips were frozen, homemade would be awesome.
Service there is bad, we were waiting quite long for the waitress just to come to our table (there was not so many clients). She didn't clean the table which was sticky and full of flies, just put the cutlery and serviette.

We just followed the trip advisor notation and it was great.
Simple, fresh and quite quick.
The blue burger had a great taste and the brownie also.
The service is also good with nice smiles.
It is really a great place between too many local food...
Go, go, go...
