Great place around Omotesando area... within Omotesando hills. If you are having a crave for burgers, just stop by and have a very nice one in Golden Brown.

Short version: Really tasty and fresh burgers served quickly at a reasonable price, in a nice looking diner. Great for lunch or a light dinner. Long version: I was worried that this place was going to be over priced and a posh take on what should be a cheap and simple meal with it being in such a high end... More

Let me start by saying you should only go to this place if you're willing to wait for delicious food. If you're in a rush, you may want to try another place. In my opinion it is absolutely worth the wait. I have been here on two separate occasions and was very happy to see the quality has remained the... More

Went to the tiny one in Omotesando Hills, with our small child who wanted a hamburger. Assumed it was non-smoking due to the location and the fact that we didn't see any smokers or ashtrays when we entered. Then a Japanese couple with a baby came and we overheard them being told it is a smoking establishment. We had already... More

The assiduous and characteristically Japanese focus on quality has made Japan the source not just of excellent Japanese food and things, but also THE destination for some of the best quality of anything that can be made. Along that vein, Golden Brown is where the Japanese focus on quality and incremental innovation makes for a damn good hamburger. I had... More

Have visited Golden Brown in Omotesando Hills a few times now and it's one of our favourite (real) burger joints. Usually have the hamburger or cheese burger and they are quite big in size and very generous with the fillings. Love the fries!! While it's a small place, and when it is busy you need to line up, the wait... More

After a week of delightful Japanese cuisine, we were curious to taste a local burger. We chose the tiny Golden Brown restaurant in the Omotesando Hills Mall. It was wonderful! I chose the mini burger + salad set with cheese. At the first bite I knew it was the best burger I've had in a long time! The golden brown... More

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

Neighbourhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
