“Pathetic food, miserable service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2012

We went to diesel cafe a couple of years ago, and it was so bad, we haven't visited again. A completely depressed waiter was attending to us, and he put us off our food, which was bad enough anyway. Lemon juice made with synthetic flavour, completely tasteless and cold snacks - it was a bad experience.

“Not the best place for breakfast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2012

We ate here only once as part of our stay at hotel prestige. They had a set menu of 6 items and we could choose two items per person staying in the room.

The food was not hot and the taste was at best average. We didnt eat here after that.

“need lots of improvement”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 December 2011

they used to prepare good continental dishes, and then one day they made a horrible tossed salad. It was absolutely ridiculous. what pissed us off even more was the floor manager who then instead of trying to make it better, argued that this is the way it was done...
Thats the last time i go there

Dear Guest,
I would first like to apologise for your experience with us was not as good as so many other guests who had visited our Café. Different hotels have different recipe for food preparation hence the salad which was prepared by our chef was not up to your expectation which could have been changed as per your request. We accept that the approach of our floor manager was not acceptable against whom corrective measures have been taken. We value our guests the most and we will take every possible measure to ensure that such remote incidents are avoided. We look forward to welcoming you back at Diesel Café.
