I went in full of hope and left with a hole in my wallet and the resolution never to go to another one of these ever again. Firstly, the service was dreadful. The ordering took an age, they then got the order wrong and there was a gap between meals for my fellow diner and I coming to the table. Having mistakenly shelled out for what they call a large cheese and bacon burger, I felt ripped off as they had padded it out using lettuce and two sorry looking tiny pieces of bacon. The fries were tasteless and the accompanying dips were likewise. And the salt shaker was broken! The strawberry milkshake left me thinking just how much better the Fine Burger Company are and they are a fraction cheaper. In the future I will avoid this chain like the plague.Report this

As you would expect from the name the Burgers are definitely gourmet! An interesting selection is available including spicy satay, mozzarella and pesto and the kiwiburger! The portions are a good size and all burgers are served with salad. Chips cost extra but not to expensive. There is a good selection of drinks available (alcoholic and non). The smoothies are nice and freshly made. You order and pay at the bar, the service was efficient and the waiters friendly. Clean tables and a modern interior give the place a trendy feel. Would definitely come and try another gourmet burger!Report this
gormet burger kitchen

Gormet Burger Kitchen is a burger place that is different. I say this because the meat isn't processed factory meat but instead the meat is good quality. Though you can tell this from the price I think the burgers are every bit worth the money. You can take away and the service is a quick easy ring up, order, fetch. They have a wide range of burgers, salads and milkshakes. The restaurant has a homely feel and it is not at all protentious but instead definitely worth your money and is a place to go if you just can't be bothered to cook another meal and want to treat yourself in an easy way.Report this
To fish or not to fish???
26/01/2008 by londongiirl
I found this place form here as i read that some TP memebers went there so i thought id go check it out myself. It a nice little resturant close to charing cross station. We only had to wait a couple of minutes to get a table but it was a Saturday at 12.30 so the place was packed. I scrolled down the menu and was suprised to see no fish on the menu. I was very dissapointed as they had loads of meat choices .... i mean atleast one fish burger would have been nice. I decided to order the falaful burger instead. it can filled with salad, hummous, relish and sauses. it was amazing. i order a side order of chips and a bottle of water which all came to 12 pound something, which i think was very good as the burger was jam packed. it was really filling. I didnt like the fact that its a tiny place but you still have to get up and order your food from the counter. and if you catch the queue at a bad time you could be waiting for a bit. but we didnt have to wait too long for out food which was good. i liked the way they are concentrating on just getting the burgers right and not fussing around with other stuff like starters and deserts etc etc but if they had fish on the memu this was would be the best place ever.... so if your reading this Mr GBK ADD FISH TO THE MEMU!!!!!!!! Check this place out but try and avoid hotspot times.Report this
Burgers & TrustedPlaces Members

Ahhh good old GBK, I've been to a few GBK the last year around London. They've always delivered quality burgers and filled my appetite to satisfaction. Yesterday I went there with a few TrustedPlaces members who as you can see on the video also enjoyed their time at GBK, even if at times was to make jokes at my expense. Any way enjoy the video:Report this

A group of us from TP went there last night, as we couldn't get into fire and stone, which was on the opposite side of the road. I have never been and there was universal shock that I hadn't tried their burgers, so it had to be done. 2 of us ordered the “Cheese” burger which was massive (as you can see from the photo). The beef patties were thick and juicy, and the burger also had a lot of melted cheese and relish with lettuce. My friend ordered a chicken salad and we had some nice thick cut chips. The burger was delicious and I still had the taste of it in my mouth hours afterwards which sounds gross but really wasn't! The salad was said to be full of too much lettuce and not enough chicken but was still tasty. The chips were nice and thick but the sauces were a bit of a let down especially a funny green one, which we thought was blue cheese but taste like wasabi in a sauce! Bizarre. The garlic mayo was also not too good (and we had asked for regular mayonnaise as well!). The service was great and the waiters were friendly which is always a plus in this town. If you are craving a good tasty fat burger and in Covent Garden this will hit the spot and the prices are reasonable as well. The review below regarding the décor is spot on but I thought it was fine and homely and ordering and paying at the counter meant that you didn't have to worry about getting the waiter's attention once you had finished the meal and had to rush for the train!Report this
Not Gourmet Enough
03/06/2007 by Bernadine
Just like at a pub, you decide what you want and then go up to the counter to order it. When your order is ready they bring it to your table. We waited a reasonable amount of time but there was a 5 minute gap between my friends getting their meal and me getting mine. The menu looks exciting with many different variations on the humble burger. The beef patties are all served medium rare unless you request otherwise. I ordered the Satay Burger. The satay sauce was delicious but there was not enough of it on the burger for my liking. My friends ordered a Thai Chicken burger and a Barbeque burger and they thoroughly enjoyed theirs. I think for the price of the burger (£6-9), chips or salad should have come with it. It seemed extortionate to pay £2.45 for a tiny side order of ordinary chips. They were not curly or crinkled or seasoned with gourmet spices so they were quite disappointing really. The décor is a mixture of hard wood and metal which made for a very noisy atmosphere. It was not easy to have a conversation without raising our voices so the experience was not as relaxed as we would have liked. The art was okay but the prints looked cheap, which made the overall look of the place seem cobbled together at the last minute. However, the Ladies Room looked good and were obviously well-maintained. This place is ok if you fancy a burger that's a little bit more special than one you'd find in a pub or fast food chain. The high prices of the drinks and the plain side dishes would make me think twice about a return visit.Report this
