Best burger for a while. good to order and served with attention. Basic environment although tiled walls and building enhance the experience. Chairs a little uncomfortable if staying over an hour but I would say that the staff, food and location/building are well worth a visit.

Getting there just as Saturday night was starting to rock in the West End we had to wait for about twenty or so minutes for a table but plenty of things to do to keep you busy in the area around. The restaurant was packed hence the noise level was quite high so if you want a a quiet romantic... More

A quick burger before theatre brought us to Byron's. Excellent service including a run down of trains to Heathrow for a fellow diner asking for information on how much time to leave to catch their plane and really good burgers, quick delivery and reasonable wines on offer. What more can you say.

The food and service were terrific. Wish we had gone earlier in the trip so we could have gone there twice! Everyone loved their food and the staff was so friendly and helpful, finding a table for 6 on a Friday night! My husband thought the cider they served was the best he had on the whole trip - we...

Visited late at night after a visit to the theatre. Great service, good food and reasonable price. The decor is basic but clean and the wait for service is not long.

This may be a very small venue but the food is excellent - definitely justifies the boast of a 'real' burger and the service was excellent. Probably the best sweet potato fries you are going to experience and the skinny burger had a good salad on the side.

Burgers are excellent and very filling . Situated just off Leicester Square it is a good value meal right in the centre of London. Staff were very friendly and efficient. Costs around £10 for a burger but they are well worth it and you won't leave hungry!

Thought this was great value for the high quality service and food received - had 2 burgers with 2 sides and 2 large glasses of wine for only £42. Well worth a visit on a hungry belly.

I did not realise it is a chain - decent price, great human staff and a good hamburger. We went after a show as everywhere else seemed to be closed - happy in the end

The service was friendly, my Smoky burger was excellent, as were the onion rings I ordered instead of fries. This is a smallish site, but worth a visit if this is their nornal standard.
