Excellent burgers and very good service. You taste the quality of the meat and the kids loved the pancakes with strawberries

4.00pm and time to refuel before making for home. Once again, top quality beef burger and fries and great choice of toppings in this Hawaiian themed, small but atmospheric diner just off Carnaby Street. Smiley waitress and quick service. So much better than the trendy big outlets. I'll be back!

Really enjoyed our burgers! We went for Huli Huli Chicken and a Huli Huli burger .... nice and spicy! Food was quick and service was very friendly. So what if the place is a bit rough round the edges- its supposed to be Hawaiian so its meant to be rustic. Would come again if in the area.

Thursday evening, place was busy. Waited almost half an hour for a table (there were tables free, but not cleared). Finally got seated but very squashed in the corner. Good on the serving hatch was there for a while. Took ages to have our order taken, had to ask 3 times for our drinks. All went for large burgers -... More

Heard good reports about this restaurant and it always seems to be busy so I thought I would give it a try. Arrived on a busy lunch time but got a seat immediately downstairs. Staff were pleasant and courteous. Food was ordered and I was surprised that fries were extra. My wife ordered the Classic with avocado at £8.45 and... More

Expect to wait. I was lucky - I was on my own and there was a party of 4 in front of me so I was given a table straight away. This place is busy and a bit cramped but for some people that adds to the atmosphere. Waitress was great and was running. Looking at what people had and... More

My husband really liked his burger. We had some really good onion rings to start. No a great deal of choice for vegans but I found avocado on toast. Toast was cold and extremely dried out. Good selection of drinks, juices and shakes. Would go back Byron is better for vegans when you have a hubby who loves meat! Couple... More

Visited here during visit to London. Super burger although did have to send first one back as undercooked. However a fresh one cooked to perfection was delivered quickly and very kindly knocked off price of beer which was generous. Beer was absolutely delicious. Good value and would come back.

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
