Moreish meal for end of day trip in London

Situated close to Kings Cross and fast service. We ordered immediately and the staff kindly assured us that the meal would be served in around 10 minutes, which it was. In all honesty, the cheese beef burger (around £6) tasted like a McDonalds burger except with nicer beef mince and tomatoes and... read more

I'm sure they can't all be the same, but here's a warning about this particular branch. We arrived at 9:45 - "we shut at 10pm" to the kind of frosty reception normally extended to distant relations who turn up for a meal three hours late. If the GBC is about getting customers to come in, stuff food in their mouth,... More

One of the best burgers in town! Loved the student discount (don't know if they still have it). Good choice of burgers, toppings, dressing and sides. They also have veggie burgers.

Decided to visit after having a browse in the shops around and in the Brunswick Centre. Both my partner and I enjoyed our food and I thought the quality of my cheese and bacon BBQ burger was excellent. Special shoutout to the staff member who served us, one of the friendliest waiters I have ever met and he was thoroughly... More

Really impressed. My first visit to GBK and won't be my last. Genuine warm welcome by staff. Place looked clean but after a very long day opted for takeaway. It was beautifully packaged. Tasted fab (onion rings are a must ) .

The burgers are average but the setting drags the average down. Dirty tables, hard working staff trying to keep the place clean. Our visit was 1/2 hr before closing and the staff were preoccupied with closing procedures. We will not be back.

Great burger, fab skinny fries and best coleslaw ever. I went bun-less and took salad instead. My Blue Cheese Burger was cooked to perfection and the blue cheese so tasty. The skinny fries were the skinniest I've ever had but tasted great. Nice surroundings and the Brunswick Centre is great for a little shopping before or afterwards.

Ate there twice, ordered the fried chicken burger with skinny fries. One look at the place and you can see it's not 'gourmet' but it's inexpensive and delicious.

I have used this outlet before and found it pretty good but this one must have given their normal staff the night off, or they were just having a bad day, either way, the food was poor, we both left most of it. Come on, at least get the basics right, how can you not make chips!!!!

My visit was driven by seeing an excellent limited edition burger on their website. The burger itself was cooked properly, but it was assembled with a lack of care and did not live up to the drool-inducing portrayal on their website. All other "posh burger restaurants" do onion rings in batter, here it turned out that they are coated in... More

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighborhood Profile
Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
