“No consideration”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

Whilst restaurants need to be kept clean it's annoying when the cleaners roughly scrape chairs against the floor and invade the space around you during cleaning. Our experience was badly spoiled by the attitude of staff. We left thinking GBK has had its day and is now more fast food than gourmet food.

“Its just a fancy burger!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

I have to be honest, I did like the food. However, it did kind of just feel like there are a lot of options of things to put on the burger to make it taste nice, rather than just the burger tasting nice. It's too expensive, so I dont think I will be back, but I can see the appeal for people who have never sat down there before.

Have to say unfortunately I had to ask for my table to be cleaned, was greasy.

“My favourite burger joint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I have to admit I am somewhat addicted to GBK burgers and having tried all of the higher end burger chains keep coming back to GBK. There is a large selection of burgers including veggie and fish options, the menu changes from time to time which helps to keep thing interesting.

The kingston branch is convent if you are looking for a quick meal, it is usually possible to get a table without having to wait and the service is usually good. The interior of the restaurant has improved since it was redecorated. As others have pointed out GBK is relatively expensive for a burger and chips, but most of the time it is possible to get a voucher of the web which offers a deal such as a 2 for 1 which makes it more economical.

“Selection!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Such an amazing selection of great tasting food in this restaurant. The ingredients to each burger are fresh (tasting-not sure if they actually are) and really tasty. Easily the best burgers I've ever had.
Only downfall would be the seating - inadequate tiny tables with spindly chairs. Like childrens tables, but higher. Also the rewards app is really successful until you reach the 3rd reward, after that it's almost impossible to gain any other rewards.

“Never disappoints, brilliant food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Have been to this restaurant quite a few times over the last few months and it never disappoints. Staff are always welcoming and friendly, service is prompt and food is excellent - in fact they could charge much more than they do!

The best GBK I've been to.

Would recommend the chicken and camembert burger and sweet potato fries, and of course the milkshakes!!
