I must admit that before Jeffrey (sic) Osborne was "Twittered" eating a Byron burger I hadn't heard of this emerging chain of gastro-burger chains. On leaving Gloucester Road tube station I spotted their eatery about 50 feet from a Burger King. I couldn't see McDonalds but this is Kensington and the 50 metre high Golden Arches would have failed to get the planners' permission, bribes or no bribes. Anyway, onto Byron, I had their "Byron Special", fries, onion rings and a glass of Malbec (yes, wine in a burger joint, even the French don't do this, one up for the Brits!). Food was great, service was quick and polite, surroundings were informal but pleasant and clientele were pleasant, clean and well behaved, a bit different from those next door in Burger King no doubt (and in McDonald's, I could smell it, even if I couldn't see it, unmissable!). I guess that's down to the price, £22.00 plus the obligatory service charge (optional of course if you're not planning on returning). Anyway, good grub, a tad pricey, Americans WILL faint at the prices of their staple diet but THIS IS LONDON and we've taken one of your better ideas, improved it dramatically and made it OURS (just like we did with India and the UK staple, curry).

This is a simple utilitarian burger joint. However it's one which serves lovely burgers, delicous fresh sides and has genuinely friendly and helpful staff. Prices are reasonable too. Not much more to say except why not give it a go yorself?

Unfortunately on this trip I personally did not have a burger but I am keen to go back and have one. My friend had a veggie burger which was excellent and we had mac and cheese and fries as well. Everything was excellent, well served and filling.

Two oreo milkshakes and they were more than happy to customise mine with a shot of iced espresso which I was very pleased with!

Great place, definite place to go if you are going to or coming from one of the nearby theatres.

Sometimes you just need simple food! Ok great! This is the right place! A menu with lots of delicious burgers and some salad, and the quality is quite high! The wait staff were all fun and friendly. Lovely place for family or friends! Cheers!
