I was so excited to go to Gourmet Garage as the design and decor for the restaurant looks incredible. I ordered a mustard burger. The patty was tasteless and it was so smothered in mustard (looked like it was just a bottle of hot English poured on top). Sadly, I won't return.

We recently tried the athol centre branch and was pleasantly surprised:) the ambience and decor could do with some work, but dont let this put you off.
As a vegetarian i ordered the mushroom burger and it was divine and soo filling! Was a nice change from the usual unappetising soya patties that most other restaurants offer.
My husband tried the chicken schnitzel burger and he was equally impressed.
Value for money.
Will be back there again to try out rest of the menu:)

Good, old fashioned milkshakes, burgers and hotdogs... Easy going and relaxed atmosphere. Really a nice change from some of the other stuffy restaurants around.

Reasonably priced burgers - large portions. The only problem I have is with the Greek salad which I had instead of chips - it was uninteresting with too much lettuce and not enough variety of Greek ingredients. My husband enjoyed the onion rings although they looked quite oily. The service is friendly and attentive. The burgers were cooked to perfection.
