“A burger to remember...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

This place serves a burger that earns a spot in the top 10 of my world list...the thing is magnificent perfectly cooked to request with a wide selection of toppings and add ons...along with the burger they prepare a top choice of street foods from all over the world prepared with meticulous mastery achieving incredible flavours....The staff knows it's stuff about foods and the peculiar beers in the menù. Since bookings are not accepted beware of the massive cues of the busy weekends. Go early and avoid them, best before 19.30.

“world street food lands in Milano”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

It's a small pearl in Milano. Very special for the unique choice of food. Forget about superhealthy-bio-vegan-organic-light food, this restaurant is a place for the pleasure of your palate and brain(curious people will find uncommon flavors and kinds of meat), even if the scale won't be happy... Think of super juicy burgers and slow cooked pork meat , pickled eggs with mayo , cheese balls, octopus skewers... People who love to try the most interesting street food in a fun, relaxed , smelly (in a good way, I loved the smell of real food cooking) and cool place, should come here. Be careful there are two entrances , the restaurant is split in two. On the right is the "fun part" of the restaurant, and on the left is the more "traditional" part, which serves a more classic menu , still good but you won't get your fingers "oily and dirty"

“I can't stop myself going this place and tasting all the dishes!Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

First I have been to the other part of the restaurant and had a Branzino instead of tasting delicious burgers. It was really nice. Than i had a time to go again and i tried the burgers! Afterwards, seriosly I can not stop myself going that place! Both for lunch and dinner, it is a casual, tasty location!

“Excellent burgers but with wrong attitude”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012 via mobile

The hamburgers are very, very good. However, when I went there for dinner and asked for the tartare that I'd seen being served for lunch, the chefs refused because they have a policy of not serving any of the lunch items for dinner. The 'restaurant' area is way overpriced, but the burger bar area is rather smelly. As much astheir burgers were good, I'm not sure that I want to give them anymore of my money, after having witnessed such arrogance.
