“Good. Especially if it's been a while...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

Had a burger and fries there. The double truffle was delicious and definitely satisfied my craving. It's not 5 guys, or in n out, but it's a different kind of burger than those.

“Tasty - but gourmet is pushing it...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

I was somewhat misled by the "Gourmet" bit of this restaurant's name. While the food was tasty - I had the veggie stack and it was great - the decor and ambience is definitely more McDonalds or worse!

I thought the burgers were reasonably priced (not compared to a real fast-food place, but for the choice and quality of ingredients), but the beer ($55) and wine ($60) and shake ($48) were expensive for the surroundings.

I'd go back for a quick meal if stuck in Central, but don't go there expecting a nice meal in nice surroundings. It's plastic forks and plates and bar stools...

“It's fun to create your own burger”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

It's not Five Guys and not close to In-N-Out. However, if you are hankering for a burger in Hong Kong this is a good place to visit to satisify your cravings. The create your own menu contains a myrid of options for your artistic burger needs, and we enjoyed our quarter pounder.

“Burger is no longer a Sin!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

You can either make your own burger – choosing the bread, spreads, filling etc or order from the menu painted on the wall. We went for the wall. The best burgers I ever had – unforgettable and didn’t feel guilty eating fast food for the first time. We came back again the next day.

“Massive disappointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013 via mobile

Was referred to this place by a friend who said it was great. What a massive disappointment. One of the worst burgers I've ever had. Staff were a pain to deal with. Don't waste your time on this place, walk around the corner to shake em' buns where you'll get a much better burger for almost half the pride.
