Welcome to the ultimate culinary experience in fine American dining, an authentic diner as it should be. With themed interior boasting a retro outfit and classical booth style seating, we are no ordinary diner… we are Big Moe’s Diner.

At Big Moe’s we are not called BIG for no reason. We offer the best in taste and quantity till the stomach is content, with the finest tasting luscious steaks and burgers grilled to homemade perfection.

Big Moe’s offers a great setting with all the bells and whistles that come with a 1950s theme diner. We are talking about a 1950’s Cadillac, Chevrolet style booth seating, vintage record albums and big juke box players, all of which are iconic features of American diners.

Asides from the memorabilia, our surround audio system playing classic rock and roll hits are bound to put a spring in your feet, and when the food arrives even your taste buds will be doing the twist!

Food was good however plate came through dirty and the service was pretty awful. Particularly 1/2 members of staff that we had to go to the bar to get the attention of and even then they sat on their phones for another 10 minutes before bringing our bill.

Stylisches Burger-Restaurant, nahe U-Bahn Aldgate East gelegen. Aufmerksamer Service. Abzüge für eiskalte Klimaanlage und schlechte Pommes

My first experience at the Whitechapel branch. The chips were over cocked and weren't steaky/chunky enough. the group ordered mainly chicken but I ordered beef. Very bland no spice no salt just bland. I'll go back to the other branches but not this one I'm afraid. Seats were torn and faded needs replacing. Having said that the staff were excellent and serving with a smile.

Me and my girlfriend went for a meal here on 30th March. Was served instantly even though their was a group of rowdy kids that she was also dealing with! She handled it so well and was super cheerful and chatty. We sadly didn’t get her name but she was blonde and was talking to us about her tattoo idea of a fox and a rabbit on her back (I hope you go ahead with it!). We didn’t wait long for food and it was excellent. Not too noisy and great value for money. Will definitely come back again soon!

We had to wait one hour for our food and drinks and they still brought he wrong order. Waiters were not really friendly. Food wasn’t fresh and didn’t have a lot of taste. Very unfortunate because the pictures online are completely different from reality.

First and last time I will visit Big Moe’s. Food wasn’t the best, cheesy chips were bland and tasteless, the hotdog was hard and doesn’t seem fresh at all. I wasn’t aware that they even charged service charge too! overpriced and poor quality food.

The service was poor from once we came into the restaurant. We sat for about 25/30 mins before asking someone when we was going to attended too. The food then arrived and my burger was RAW. We did complain to the manager at the end when he asked why we didn’t want to pay service charge.

Very disappointing. We wanted something quick as we only had a short time available. It took 20 minutes for the drinks to arrive and at least another half an hour for food. The food looked like it had been left standing for ages. Everything was tasteless and overcooked.

Food was nice but not the warmest (Chips got cold quickly).
Food didn't take long to come out but service for additional drinks and extra sauces, etc. was very poor.

On the plus side the Diner experience is great, authentic seats and decor, and lovely milkshakes.
the sliders were great. Menu is a little burger heavy but it's a Diner after all.

Would go again but with lower expectations

Dreadful service. Had to ask repeatedly for our missing food via 4 different members of staff. The waiter forgot to put my sons food order in whilst the rest of us got ours. They then did the same thing with deserts and accused us of lying about having ordered them.

When asked to bring over a birthday cake for my daughter whose birthday it was, they didn’t bother to clear the table and decided to bring the cake with candles lit singing happy birthday whist the birthday girl was in the toilet!

Would definitely not visit again, it’s a shame as we really enjoyed the food and have been going there for special occasions for years! It has really deteriorated over the years and the service just gets worse with each visit.

Would definitely never go there again. The most recent visit was the last straw, no wonder the place was half empty on a Friday night when the line used to be hanging out the door!

Great atmosphere - got to sit in a convertible for lunch. The service was friendly and fast apart from getting the bill at the end. The food was typical American diner with old school American hits playing in the background. Food was good value - not too big but also not little leaving you hungry.

Just was not worth the price we paid for. The portion sizes are TOO SMALL. We spent over £70 and none of us were full. We had to eat out and desert somewhere else. For £10, my brother got a burger, a portion of chips, and a few pieces of salad. Kids meals weren't worth the price of 5 pounds either. I mean if you're gonna make the price expensive, at least give food that's worth it.

Food was amazing - I was just sad there was so much of it that I couldn't eat dessert! The atmosphere was fantastic, 50's diner style but didn't feel at all tacky. We sat in a huge booth that was dressed up to look like an old-style American car. The menu looked amazing, and when the food came it looked just as good as the pictures - tasted great too! Prices are reasonable for London. It's a really fun place to eat and I'd love to try some of the other things on the menu.

For a diner being American you're expecting the usual American flavor & standards but it had some modifications on a American menu and it was disappointing.
