Last week I was really excited to get my fix of a good burger in Tokyo. Have been waiting for a while to visit Omotesando and check out The Great Burger. Unfortunately The Great Burger does not live up to its name. Like a lot of other burger joints in Tokyo, the menu has large selection of “exotic” burgers- you... More

We visited this burger place late night on our first day in Tokyo. I'm a vegetarian so finding options isn't always easy - luckily enough this place even offers a vegetarian burger. It was one of the best burgers I've ever had. The kiwi fruit mojito was reasonably priced 9000yen and delicious! Super laid back and cool Americana vibe -... More

Found this place by chance and it does not disappoint. Got a great burger and the price isn't too bad. Only thing wrong with it is the portion size of chips you get. Besides that great place to eat at defiantly check it out.

After two weeks of Japanese and Asian cuisine we really craved for a nice burger and this place really met our expectations. The staff is very friendly. We had to wait outside for our table and already got the menu. So the service was very quick once inside the restaurant. Funny highlight: the toilet (unisex) has only Japanese signs. So... More

The burgers are excellent, the fries and wedges too. Loved the atmosphere with loads of US memorabilia and good music. Service was friendly if a little distracted some times.

Many different burgers to choose from in a laid back "80s USA" atmosphere, which I really liked. The interior as well as the music! Good beer, milkshakes, drinks, sundaes and friendly service staff. Highly recommended!

Tucked away in an up and coming area of Shibuya is a gem of a burger joint. Service is efficient and the burgers are super. Juicy and succulent. Don't miss it.

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

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.
