Excellent Burger for Japan

This is the best burger I have had in a year in Japan, but the competition is extremely low when it comes to gourmet burgers around Tokyo area. The restaurant I visited is very small (fits around 15 people only) and does not take reservations, which means that your chances of waiting is high. The... read more

And that's all that I got was a normal average burger. Avocado was my extra and it was fresh but the burger smelt a little off. Bun was dry and the fries a little bland. Wine was an incredibly small glass for the price and was sweet. Nice space and friendly service but food was not up to par.

The burgers are a bit expensive (JPY 1200+), but this place is really worth the visit. The juicy meat and amazing sauce make those the best burgers I've tried in Tokyo!

obviously tastes are subjective. i'm a native new yorker and visits to GOLDEN BROWN are a must for my trips to tokyo. best burgers i've ever ate. they just do things different in japan. it's that extra research and extra perfection that the people put in. american staple but perfected in their own way in JP. a MUST.

Expensive for sure, but worth every yen. Their shop is on Yamatedori a bit of a walk from Nakameguro, before the 246. Open for lunch and dinner (menu changes at 4pm and includes their signature GB burger). Their meat is delicious and so are the toppings and buns. They obviously care about their product and their customers. Besides burgers they... More

Neighborhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
