Sometimes there is a need for some change in diet, and Golden Brown provided the perfect place for burger and fries relief in Naka-Meguro. But not your average boring burger and fries - a range of very tasty varieties were available in a very casual and relaxed surrounding on a busy street. I loved the atmosphere - very American 50s...

So far I think this is the best burger in Tokyo. I have had many many great burgers in Tokyo and great fun and travels trying some of the best rated joints in town. They just do things simple and well here. Good ingredients, Diner-style service a little pricey maybe but you'll be talking about this place to your friends... More

This is the best burger I have had in a year in Japan, but the competition is extremely low when it comes to gourmet burgers around Tokyo area. The restaurant I visited is very small (fits around 15 people only) and does not take reservations, which means that your chances of waiting is high. The service was not slow with... More

And that's all that I got was a normal average burger. Avocado was my extra and it was fresh but the burger smelt a little off. Bun was dry and the fries a little bland. Wine was an incredibly small glass for the price and was sweet. Nice space and friendly service but food was not up to par.

The burgers are a bit expensive (JPY 1200+), but this place is really worth the visit. The juicy meat and amazing sauce make those the best burgers I've tried in Tokyo!

obviously tastes are subjective. i'm a native new yorker and visits to GOLDEN BROWN are a must for my trips to tokyo. best burgers i've ever ate. they just do things different in japan. it's that extra research and extra perfection that the people put in. american staple but perfected in their own way in JP. a MUST.

Expensive for sure, but worth every yen. Their shop is on Yamatedori a bit of a walk from Nakameguro, before the 246. Open for lunch and dinner (menu changes at 4pm and includes their signature GB burger). Their meat is delicious and so are the toppings and buns. They obviously care about their product and their customers. Besides burgers they... More
