A viral restaurant chain encouraging staff to serve up bad attitudes is coming to Auckland.

Karen's Diner - which claims to be an interactive dining experience with good food and terrible service - reportedly plans to open in the City of Sails in August.

"Expect rude service, singing waiters and regular guest appearances from the manager - the most Karen Karen ever - just don't dare ask to see her."

The planned restaurant location is currently a secret.

"At Karen's you will be greeted and waited upon by rude waiters who in return are expecting you to give it full Karen," the restaurant said on its website.

"A place where you can complain until the cows come home because we literally don't care."

Karen's Australian website said under 16-year-olds must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

"Rude language is used across our venues. We are not Disneyland," the company added.

The first Karen's Diner opened in Sydney last year.
