I visited Gourmet Burger Kitchen with a large group of friends. I arrived late, and asked if our group of friends (who had made a booking under one of their names) had arrived yet. The staff seemed completely bewildered and left a couple of us waiting around while they attempted to find out. We gave up and phoned our friends, who were already sitting upstairs!! No idea why the staff didn't know that...

After all that, things were a lot smoother! Our drinks were delivered quickly, and the food was absolutely delicious. I had the butternut squash salad, and was pleased to see that they had been very generous with the feta cheese - the pieces were massive. Normally I find GBK quite pricey, but with discount vouchers it's much better (they have vouchers on their website for you to print out, which is nice and easy). Definitely recommend for the food, things may be less confusing if you visit in smaller groups.

Purveyors of fine burgers!

Gourmet Burger Kitchen (or GBK to those in the know!) is a relatively new addition to York’s eateries, having sprung up on Lendal about a year ago. As such it’s still very smart and shiny inside, with lots of glass and nice-looking wood 'poshing' up the interior enough to signify that this is NOT a fast food restaurant. No bright plastics used here! (I must confess to a nasty habit of forgetfully calling it ‘Gourmet Burger King’!)

GBK specialises in top quality burgers and what a choice! There are about ten different choices of beef burger, four chicken, five vegetarian and five extra-special specials (buffalo or wild boar burger anyone?!). Everything is extremely tasty, but having worked my way through a fair bit of the menu I have settled on the rather “old school” favourite of the cheeseburger! Burgers are all under a tenner, but you do have to get fries and sides separately. An average meal with wine would be £15-£20, but you can reduce that enormously by laying your hands on a 2 for 1 voucher (available on the internet at the moment).

Would definitely recommend GBK for a quick bite at the start of your evening, as the quality of burger will not be found elsewhere in York. However, it’s not a great venue for a leisurely meal with friends, as they don’t seem to expect you to want to take your time over things. My friend and I enjoyed burgers and bottle of wine while diners around us came and went; we ended up sitting in a deserted restaurant being hoovered around and cash very noisily being counted up … and it was only 10pm!
