I came here to have a catch up with a friend, I had a classic burger meal, £10 for any classic burger and chips. This is actually great value, the burgers are good quality in comparison to other more expensive burger restaurants in London. The service was great as this GBK, my only issue would be that the seating is... More

No Atmosphere whatsoever. Overpriced. Cool chips and staff do not understand "No mayonnaise". Due to the open plan kitchen I saw the "chef" wiping my burger with blue kitchen towel after he had contaminated it. When I told my server I was told that it did not happen ! Average food at too high a price point. The Wellington Burger... More

Staying in the local area, we went to GBK as the food is consistently good. At this location the food was as good as it was expected, good portion sizes. The only problem was the staff - 3 of them working on the front desk, 1 pretending to wait on tables and take orders at the desk, another occasionally answering... More

I was working away and saw the familiar sign so popped in on my own. Staff were friendly and the burgers are consistently great across the whole chain. Reliable place.

Person behind the counter looked like she didn't want to be there. We got an acknowledgement that we'd arrived and that we could seat ourselves. We did, waited a few minutes and then got up to get menus (no big deal) but this seem to annoy this woman. Ordered food using the student discount, which was met with more eye... More

I walk pass this place every day on my way to work and it's quite packed every time I peek inside. My mouth started watering every time, so I decided I had to go eat here with some friends. The burger was juicy and delicious and their onion rings were divine as well, nicely flavoured. Their garlic mayo dip is... More

Throughout my master’s year, I used to stay in Russell Square, right next to the Brunswick Center. One day, while shopping for some groceries, I noticed this small burger place. Given I am a HUGE FAN of burgers; I thought I would just go try it out. I ordered the Habanero Burger and it was OUT OF THIS WORLD. Truly... More

GBK does a good job of making an actual meal from simple burgers and fries. The menu offers a good choice of sandwiches, pandering both to those who want something straightforward, as well as those looking to be a little more adventurous — the latter will be pleased to see a real variety of ingredients, including some more obscure vegetables,...

It's difficult to walk past this 'Burger Paradise' without stopping to enjoy one of their delights, before heading into Waitrose Super Market to do some casual shopping. The burgers, fries and service is always amazing and something to remember. Close to Russell Square tube station - accessible to all who wander these parts.
