Poised at the top of Wardour Street,’s first branch outside Lebanon opened to a mixed reception. In a city in the throes of street-food hysteria, it doesn’t curry any favours by plastering a theory of ‘BRGRology’ all over the placemats. Small burgers, made from the cheapest cuts, start at a very reasonable £4.75. Ordering them is more difficult, with the staff schooled in the art of upselling expensive specials and gourmet alternatives. The burgers arrived Ikea-style, laid out for self-assembly with lettuce, tomatoes and pickle on the side.

The meat was cooked to order, but the glazed brioche bun disintegrated quickly and the bacon was flaccid and under-done. A buttermilk onion stack had an excellent, almost Hula Hoop-like crunchiness, while old-fashioned mac ‘n’ cheese was let down by a runny sauce and perfunctory drizzle of truffle oil. Crowded with bare tables and spindle-backed chairs, the restaurant itself is reasonably stylish if unoriginal. You could certainly find a worse burger in London, but compared to Soho’s other joints, this place lacks a bit of soul.

Most appalling and comically bad service we have ever encountered in London. Not good value for money, lukewarm and overcooked food and far too noisy. Staff are utterly incompetent and rude. After being ignored, our order was then mucked up repeatedly from start to finish. We will not be returning or recommending this place to anybody. Waste of time.


Our visit to this burger place was unplanned. We wanted to try a restaurant next door, but the waiting time was so long that we decided to go elsewhere. My friend had been to their Chelsea branch and was talking positively about them. However, even she was unimpressed with the food that night. She ordered a classic burger and her verdict was that the sweet potato fries were better than her main meal! I had the halloumi burger and it was just ok, nothing special. There are a lot more better veggie burgers in the city. The staff were really friendly though and the service was good, but as for the food, very normal.


The recently refurbished restaurant is home to possibly the best Truffle Cheese fries in London, the burgers, though not bad, pales in comparison. Since its refurb it has taken on more of a “date night” feel to it, filled with couples sipping cocktails.

The fact that it is decently priced, and in the heart of Soho makes it a sure hit.


I had an afternoon tea here and, while I knew it wasn't meant to be a traditional afternoon tea, I was still left quite disappointed. 

Whilst you'll see a well presented plate in my attached picture - the food was not as good as it looked.

The burgers were average - we had salmon, chicken and beef - and the buns were dry. By far the biggest disappointment though were the desserts. The pastry of the lemon tart was dry and the brownie tasted burnt.

The chips and milkshake were pretty good, but the portions were tiny.

The restaurant itself was very cramped with loud music so we couldn't really hear very well.

The only positive was that the meal was so small, the experience didn't last long so didn't impact our day out!


Just in time for Father's Day I would highly recommend taking your Dad here to treat him- without breaking the bank.

I wasn't really sure what to expect, but hoped my Dad, a lover of American food, would enjoy it over a traditional afternoon tea and I'm pleased to say he did!

The atmosphere wasn't as posh as your normal hotel that you may visit for an afternoon tea, but considering this was a burger afternoon tea it was perfect. The 'tea' itself consisted of three sliders, fries, three deserts, a milkshake, and an iced tea to wash it all down which I thought for the cost was amazing and we both left full and satisfied. 

I went last year with my Dad and he still talks about it so I think I can certainly give this a thumbs up from us both. 


I have had afternoon tea here before but they've recently updated the menu so a friend and I popped down to try it. Worth the visit!

The sliders now include their classic beefburger, fried chicken and a crab & prawn cake, all served in tiny brioche buns. They were glorious! Way more filling than one would expect. To accompany these were a cute small bucket of fries, which were perfectly seasoned and crispy.

Then for desserts, we had a lemon tart, gooey chocolate brownie and a small shot of vanilla milkshake. The vanilla milkshake is absolutely dreamy! Sweet and creamy and oh so good! I'm not a fan of brownies, but that brownie was warm, gooey and sticky with chunks of chocolate inside and amazing! Literally chocolate heaven!

More newness with the improved afternoon tea was that you now get a prosecco raspberry cocktail as well as homemade iced tea. I was driving, so swapped my cocktail for a homemade lemonade which was fab!

A great little diner overall and though it doesn't hold much people, the food and atmosphere are great. Plus it was a hot sunny afternoon, so the doors were opened which made the experience even nicer. Even better, because of my tweet of the food (as you do) l, I get a free dessert or shake next time! Yay me!

We entered the place and taken to a nice snugly table then a young kid ,a young blond kid,suppose to return and a few minutes later nothing ,so a lovely dark Latin waiter who was lovely took our order of a ice tea and lemonade ,2 burgers ,cheese fries ,onion rings and macaroni cheese,we waited having our drinks being taken to the table that arrived after and then our onion rings came before drinks ,the onion rings were very hard,I had to ask for the drinks then the food arrives and we waited for the cheese fries?well they never arrived ,the oriental older who's either the owner or manager needs to train himself and smile,the young kid was so lost I could observe.i cancelled the fries as they were served to another table which again arrived after us and really disappointed 30 quid later.does this people really think this resembles an American joint??? Not a chance and yes I did tell the waiter with the dark hair how I felt,he was the only one who apologised and had any good sense.please train staff to be observant and smiley as I tell you and people can verify themselves that this place needs a review of the owner itself in order to survive.Everyone looked all over the place.No way I return to this chain in Soho.

Wow I think that people need to revisit this place, the service defiantly has improved and the food is great! I went to on Wednesday this week with my husband. It's one of the only burger places that I have been to that has a selection of beef burger types, we both went for the 'hanger steak burger' which was delicious. We shared parmesan truffle fries and onion rings. My husband usually does not eat fries but loves the parmesan fries, much to my disappointment as I wanted them all to myself! The staff were really friendly and very much on the ball A great place in a great location.  

My boyfriend and I went here for dinner last night (I admit only because all our favourite places had a 1.5 hour waiting time!) and the service was awful. The girls were polite enough, but they mucked up our drinks order 3 times!!!! and then our food order. The restaurant is tiny so when I did complain I felt very embarrassed. The snarky male manager said "fine, I'll just have to give you 25% off then" - which of course we took, but reluctantly. The food was fine and quite tasty, but quite overpriced.I'd much rather go to Honest Burger or Five Guys. Stay clear and don't fooled by the aesthetics and location.

I went to this restaurant yesterday (09/12/13), the service was appalling, the food was average, overpriced and yes charged for every condiment apart from ketchup.....I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.... I am now being asked to give it a star rating, unfortunately it doesn't accept a zero, becasue that is all it I reluctantly have to give it one star.!!!!!

Fantastic burger, tried the butchers cut with fries and an Oreo Shake. A welcoming atmosphere, with reasonable music., wasn't expensive and the quality of the food was really good.

I had high expectations when i arrived to your restaurant enforced by my enjoyment of the decor in the room. Unfortunately these were quickly shattered when we came to the reality of the extensive floors of it was absolutely bollocks.

Awful place. First time I went the food was average if overpriced (their habit of charging you for every co diment or topping added to your burger is ridiculous) but the second time I was left sitting at my table without a menu for close to 10 minutes until I gave up and left. Try the nearby Byron burger for a far superior high-end burger.

Mouth-wateringly delicious burger. Creative condiments. Loved it. Highly recommend.

Pretty terrible service AND they add 12.5% to your bill to rub it in your face

Poor service and mediocre burgers. Superior alternatives (Burger and Lobster or Honest Burger) nearby.
