Just awesome

Shoh. What an incredibly disappointing restaurant. If it wasn't for the fact that I was with a good friend I actually think I would've breathed fire at these guys. I had the rosti which felt more like unseasoned potato mash, which had been fried, than a tasty dish. Couple that with cream which... read more

Visited Hudsons with my younger sister who is a student while I am way past my student days. She fit in with the crowd there and the loud music didn't bother her. I thought the music was too loud. Having said that, the place is still worth a visit for their wide variety of burgers which are juicy and delicious.... More

The waitresses are very friendly and helpful. The... More

Average burgers, insipid fries and dreadful service. 40 minute wait for two burgers, no offer of further beverages and no explanation regarding the delay. The waitress also messed up the order of the table next to us, so they waited even longer than we did. The place clearly has no management.

Good food, pleasant, fast service but still a burger joint attracting a youngish crowd (students) and hence a bit noisy but definitely bearable (and worth it).

Next to The Dog's Bollocks, this has to be a seriously terrific burger joint! The service is great and the burgers are made just right... not dried out and needing to be revived with tons of some sauce or other!!! Thanks for a great experience.

Waiters are TERRIBLE .The last three times I was here waiters were too busy giving each other massages to notice we are waiting for service, took extremely long with the bill,different waiters coming each time to bring an order, and a...

I loved the vibe. I think the Joint was short stuffed during our visit but the waitress assigned to us was very much friendly and helpful.

I have had plenty of good burgers at Hudsons, one of my favourite places to a quick lunch or dinner with some mates and beers. The staff are high energy, service is normally pretty quick and the beer is always ice cold! I would definitely recommend having one of the slider selections, this gives you a little taste of everything.
