“Tasty and Filling”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

Booked for a saturday and was told as the restaurant was fully booked we could only have the table for an hour. Was a little worried about being rushed but said ok. I needn't have worried came in was greeted by the always friendly alex. Service was on the ball had our drinks straight away. As my friend hadn't been before she needed a bit of time to consider the many burger options available. Order went in food came out hot fresh and tasty we even had time for desert did not feel rushed in any way. Left full and after eating there I have introduced someone else who has now said they would definitely go back.

“Brilliant!”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

Never had so fresh and tasty food in such a comfortable ambiance for so less price. I loved their nachos! Never had anything so fresh and warm.

“Did not get it”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

Look like they took over a Chinese takeaway - one person serving on the floor, on our night they try a little to hard and its a bit fake.
Sides and starters were good - but for the burgers, yes, lots of choice - but they only cook them well done.. told health & safety reasons.. We do just check if its frozen but told fresh meat - just very average quality, over cooked into a grey slightly grease lump.. Not uneatable, but you would have to be very hungry to enjoy.

petkov11, Owner at Paolo's Kitchen, responded to this review, July 5, 2014
thank you very much for coming back to us , i don't know what did you not get . In big cities like London they still might cook their gourmet burgers rare to medium rare but not here the council here squashes us to the ground , I am sorry but i don't want to cook my burgers well done i simply have no choice because of huge amount of minced beef policy that is going around the country . I would like to encourage you to go to any website and see for fact that this is the reality about gourmet burgers these days . Unfortunately i am no Gordon Ramsay my voice as well as many other small restaurants around here does not count to the eyes of Thanet District Council .

In terms of the comment about that looks a bit like a Chinese take away its a bit insulting to me and the Chinese communities and culture .

thank you very much for your feedback

“How to choose from so many burgers”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

wandering around broadstairs on a hot Sunday afternoon, stumbled across this interesting place. Not just burgers, but a good white wine (mostly Maltese). Freshly cooked burgers, I had a 'skinny' burger (lamb), not very skinny, but no fries or bread and a good salad portion.
Alex, was very helpful. kind and friendly, we had an excellent lunch and would certainly go again if in the area.
