“Decent but food not raved about”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Went there a few months ago and the only amazing things there are the milkshakes and maybe some desserts. Lovely staff but the food is..well the chips are obviously oven chips and sweet potato chips well..there so burned its like eating batter.Asked if brownies, pancakes and waffles are made fresh..no there frozen and shipped to the store :/

Lovely place and staff! - Just food needs sorting out

“Excellent Ed's”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Just had a second visit to Ed's and once again had a perfect and relaxing experience. Nothing is too much trouble for the chirpy staff and again the food and drink were top notch. Add to that the brilliant old sing along music, the 50's/60's decor and you have a perfect place to relax. Cannot recommend highly enough.

“Amazing food”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Been to Ed's diner many times, me & my adult children always go here to eat when we are in Leicester, really yummy food, good service & lovely waiting staff (we love Sam). Cant think why anyone would leave a bad review to be honest.

“Not an american diner by a long way...”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Having popped in for lunch we left disappointed, I had pancakes and my husband had a burger neither were great. We travel to America and knew this would be a difficult ask, for a good diner in the UK but Ed's doesn't reflect any diner at any level we've visited in the states. The pancakes were cold and rubbery, the burger came and wasn't appetising at all. Topped off with the average level of service and slightly higher cost than your usual lunch type restaurant I'd not recommend it.

“Overall a good experience”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

We've been to this particular Ed's a number of times. The food is always delicious. The service is good. I've only had one negative experience with service when she forget about me for nearly 20 minutes but thankfully that was a one off. We took up their loyalty card offer which offers some great discounts and free food. Overall I think it's a good restaurant!
