“Guaranteed a good expenrience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Baron is a very well manage chain restaurant all in different deco style were you are guaranteed to have a good burger fast, my own fav is the skinny with salad and blue dressing on the side with a glass of house white. I visit regularly to keep the teens happy!

“Decent food let down by absent service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

I dined In Byron on Monday evening. I arrived at 21.40 and asked if we were still ok to get some food. A very polite waitress advised that this was fine and showed us to our table. The menu was quite limited but I opted for a med/rare classic burger and my friend had the chicken burger and we shared some fries. We both agreed that the food was tasty and good value for money.

Our plates were cleared and we were offered dessert menus which we accepted....then the wait began. The staff filled condiments, folded napkins, cleared the tables either side of us and even took out bins(!) but no one returned to our table ever again despite every effort to catch their attention. We were one of 4 tables left at this point but the staff seemed so anxious to close up, we felt completely ignored. We sat with nothing (no menus, no desserts, no drinks) for 45 mins and still no one approached us to see if we wanted anything else. Luckily, we found this all quite funny but in the end, we got the message and left. Pity because it could have been so much better.

“Great burgers and sides, often overlooked.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

I have eaten at around 5 Byron locations on my london burger quest. Every time these guys have hit the mark for me and I'm very fussy with what a good burger means to me. I have tried most on their menu and the new chilli burger is for me the king. Lovely bun, juicy patty without being messy and is packed full of flavour. Burger snobs often overlook Byron as a 'chain' but in my opinion they are missing out. The shakes are the best in London and the sides are top class. Well done guys.

“Haymarket Site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Not the widest choice of menu....but what they do provide ie burgers are done very well. All burgers are cooked to order and of good quality. The sides of fries and onion rings were also very good and the service was friendly and speedy. We were heading to the theatre and this was certainly a good place to eat re proximity to main theatres and and quality / price of food.
