One of the most AMAZING burgers of my life!

I love a good burger and this place is up there as one of my favourites. It is a little hard to find (the only giveaway is a hamburger sign out the front), but once inside you are greeted very warmly, and with a smile. Its a small establishment, which suits me, and the entire operation is just... read more

We heard about Centre4burgers from a Japanese friend. Rang and made a booking (English ok) and came the next day with family of four. The place is difficult to find literally being behind and walking through an antiques shop at the street front. But well worth the effort to find and can be found using google maps. The young couple... More

My family and I were starting to get bitter from the tradaitinal kaiseki cuisine and it's tastelessness (in my opinion), we ate lunch at a french restaurant and dinner at center4hamburgers to make up for it. The meal was delicious, I took the bacon and red chedder burger, and as a burger fan I must admit it was fantastic, a... More

We stopped in Takayama to pick up a bus to go into the mountains but we specifically stayed a little longer to eat here as we read it was the best burger in Japan. I would have to agree! The restaurant is small like others have said and we didn't have reservations so they let us take-out. I would highly... More

Rang ahead by 30mins and got a table. They turned away at least 3-4 other groups who didn't. Got bacon and cheese beef burger with added avocado (heaps!). Awesome value, hit the spot. Great beer list. 4-5 Japanese beers plus a bunch of international and it seems the fridge has other choices too. Cosy little place, nice jazzy/folky music in... More

The front part of this restaurant is an antique shop. The seating area in the back is small. This is a very popular restaurant so it is best to reserve ahead. We got takeout twice during our Takayama stay. We put in the order and then came back 30-60 minutes later to pick it up. The vegetable sandwiches were delicious... More

These burgers were really very good, although we did not feel they were so out of the ordinary that the place deserves a 5 star rating. Cosy atmosphere, interesting decor and friendly staff!

This restaurant is run by a really friendly Japanese couple that are getting married this year and we were on honeymoon we'd lots to chat about! A mutual love for old VW beetles for one! We ordered a double cheese burger and a salsa burger , both excellent. The portions are small so order extra fries and onion rings if... More

The restaurant is tucked behind an antique shop. Its decor is an eclectic mix of antique of dubious provenance. For example the front door handle is s recycled old brass iron. I can't say if this is a genuine article or later day replica though. Getting there could be tricky. Start from crossing the river from Nakabashi bridge, just east... More

Quality burgers and fries, it was a nice break from japanese food. It's only small so we had to go on a waiting list for a table. Atmosphere was average. Service was good
