I hadn't been to a GBK in about 5 years, if not more. Once this place felt like a pioneer in gourmet burgers, but since the invasion of proper American hamburgers in the U.K., with their sweet buns, yellow cheese and skinny patties, GBK hasn't feel that appealing. I'm not really sure where it sits in the market.

However tonight we ended up here and it was pretty good. I opted for a grilled chicken breast burger, which is a surprisingly hard thing to find in this fried chicken obsessed world. It was simple and tasty and I could add pineapple - the dream. There is a Nando's vibe to the place: ordering at the bar, corn on the cob and halloumi on the menu. There is a decent range of burgers and sides, with the Southern Hemisphere toppings you don't find in many other places, and as such some healthier options. Like many high street chains you can have a nice meal here - nothing to shout about but nothing to complain about either.


The interior design of this restaurant really reminded me about an American diner, rather than an Australian restaurant, due to its tiles on the walls, its wooden tables, and a big daily menu board hanging on the wall. It has plenty of space and it isn't very busy during lunch time. The staff was friendly and the kitchen was still opened despite it being nearly 3PM. Gourmet Burger Kitchen, specializes, as the name suggests, in burgers, however, they have a wide choice of food in general and types of burgers (classic, beef, veggie,etc..), making it really hard to choose. They also have a kids menu, and a gluten-free, salad and veggie part of the menu. If you're feeling like having a quite light meal, I'd suggest you to try the lunch menu, where you can choose between 4 types of burger (beef, cheese/beef, chicken and vegetarian) - I had the classic beef one (4 oz beef burger with mayo,relish and salad) and found it delicious - and a side (skinny fries, normal fries, slaw, or cheese slaw) starting from the price of £5.95, making it an affordable place. Portions are generous, and you can choose the burger's size (the ones included in the lunch menu are the regular ones, but for an upgrade you can have a bigger one) and how would you like it to be cooked). The only con is that the dipping sauces are expensive (£1.25 each), but overall, I had a great experience.
