Unleash Your Inner Karen At This Hilarious Restaurant With Terrible Service In Sydney

Karen’s of Sydney — this one’s for you.

There’s a new pop-up restaurant in town that you simply must visit. Aptly titled Karen’s Diner, the restaurant boasts of great food, poor service and unprofessional staff in a bid to encourage customers to embrace their inner ‘Karen’ and let out all their pent-up rage.

The restaurant takes a jibe at the popular ‘Karen’ meme which calls out problematic white women who are perceived to be entitled and privileged.

At Karen’s diner, you can expect ‘Great Burgers and Rude Service’ by staff who are literally paid to act in an unprofessional manner.

Their website proudly boasts: “A place where you can complain until the cows come home because we literally don’t care. Our staff are rude, our manners are non-existent and we’re the perfect place for Karen’s everywhere to vent their anger and dismay at the world.”

Adding: “Come on, ask for the manager… WE DARE YOU.”

This absurdly fun dining experience has become so very popular that the restaurant is planning to open restaurants in Melbourne and Brisbane as well.


Ironically, if you’re (un)lucky enough to actually be called a Karen, you can snap up some free drinks with proof of ID.

Despite the terrible service, the restaurant boasts of a pretty impressive menu with several American diner favourites including burgers, fries and milkshakes.

Have we piqued your interest yet? If you’re keen to experience the madness for yourself, check out their website for more details. The diner is only in town for a limited time before moving to Melbourne and Brisbane.
