“Yum!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

As both mine and my boyfriend's first visit to GBK we were not disappointed. We had a v the her for 2 burgers for a tenner, which significantly reduced to price of our bill- sides and drinks included. The food was delicious and I really recommend the strawberry and elderflower fizz for a drink!

Although GBK seems hidden from central Leeds, it's well worth searching out instead of theusual burger chains.

Will definitely be visiting again!

“Tasty Burger”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

So after a tense argument with the girlfriend I had to say sorry somehow ...bought flowers wine etc and coz payday is kinda mid month Io had to budget for a quick meal ....Enter burger taste buds.....The joint is big and spacious ...it was not busy as it was Sunday evening.....Ordered the Habenero, girlfriend had the lamb with harissa dressing very nice all round .....All I'll say is the burgers were tasty tasty !!!the chips were not so great being double cooked couldn’t really understand why ....I had chicken skewers for a starter ...they were not really the tastiest but the dip on the side made up for it ...We also had onion rings ....cooked to perfection...The staff told us of the available offers on the App and that reduced 2 burgers to £10.00 but limited on the menu. I assure you this is enough as some of the double burgers look massive.

Let’s talk price is £8.00 + justifiable for a burger ...personally I think so ....coz once you read where the beef is sourced from look at the size and have a taste , you kind appreciate the trouble they go to, to get a good pattie.....I will go back

“great burgers”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Just a great place to sit and have casual food with a twist in some of the tastes -the relishes are tasty and one favourite for me was the mint burger

“A very Impressive Dining Experience”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Whether we like to admit it or not, the majority of us do love a good burger.
Nearly a decade after Super-Size Me hit our screens, we’ve come to realise that there are bigger problems in the world than worrying about fast food consumption, and as long as we don’t eat burgers every day for three months, we should be just fine, thank
you very much. So what separates a good burger from a bad burger? Cynics may argue that simply containing the advertised ingredients is enough, but as Gourmet Burger Kitchen proves,
it’s the little things that make a big difference. I went along to The Greek Street branch to see what sets them apart from the ferocious competition. I had wondered whether the word
‘gourmet’ would mean ridiculous toppings such as quails eggs and foie gras, but thankfully I was wrong. On entering, you’re presented with a cool, relaxed and very modern
interior. Whilst opting to sit outside in the scorching July heat, we perused their menu with a glass of the delicious Yealands Pinot Noir (19.95 a bottle). The menu has been devised carefully to cater to all tastes, and there were several options I would be happy to try. We ordered some Chargrilled Chicken Skewers (4.25) to put us on, and found the Smoked Chilli Mayo that accompanied them to be very tasty. The chicken was nicely cooked bbq style, so far so good. As I’m supposed on a pre-Ibiza diet (it’s an imaginary diet that I imagine will never happen), I opted for the Buffalo Burger (10.25). Advertised as deep in flavour and low in fat, I found the topping a little plain for my taste, so I added jalapenos, bacon and cheese. Told you the diet was imaginary. My companion went for the special of the month, which was a Cajun
Chicken Burger with Blue Cheese Slaw (8.25). Sides wise, we chose the Sweet Potato Fries with Bacon Aioli (3.75) and the Double Chargrilled Corn on the Cob (2.95). We also went for the side sauces of Chilli Salsa and some more Smoked Chilli Mayo (1.25). Service was swift and friendly, and it wasn’t long before our mains arrived. The first thing that caught
my attention were the Sweet Potato Fries. Although I would have wanted a
bigger portion between two, they looked and tasted delicious. They were really crispy, and a
welcome change from standard fries. I’ll be attempting these myself at
home. The Buffalo was indeed a darn tasty burger, the low fat content in no way compromising the flavour. Another thing I like about GBK is the condiment selection. They really cater for spice lovers like myself, with Kiwi Habanero and Hot Chilli sauces imported from New
Zealand, as well as Tabasco. Across the table, the Cajun Chicken Burger was also a winner, with The Blue Cheese Slaw going beyond expectation. I tasted both and
again, the slaw was amazing. Not something I’d seen elsewhere, but a bold and bolshy topping that really complimented the Cajun spice. We ordered a second round of drinks,
with special praise going to the Harviestoun Bitter & Twisted (£4.25) – a really fresh, zingy lager that I’d not seen served elsewhere. So GBK gets a resounding thumbs up from me. The burgers are of good quality, but it’s the attention to detail on the toppings sides, sauces and
even drinks that really make this joint a cut above the rest. I will definitely return.

“Poor service and food - avoid!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

Took ages to bring out food. Fries were cold. Brought me a burger in a bun even though I asked for it without (I'm allergic to wheat) didn't bring me two of the items I ordered and took ages again. Chunky chips were awful. Tasted like they had been refried. Very expensive for very poor quality.
