BurgeRoom, Top of the class


At BR, they’re raising the bar, with innovations such as the chilli fish, lobster, and foie gras burgers. Though we were tempted, to keep things fair we went for the classic beef burger ($48) with tomato, lettuce and home-made Thousand Island. Before we’d even had a bite, it had already scored heavily for its slick packaging.

What our tasters said: “It’s huge!... Really big and fresh... It’s got the appearance and thickness of a seriously good-looking burger... A nostalgically American classic taste... The bun doesn’t disintegrate like with some big burgers... Onions would have been welcome... The creamy Thousand Island is perfection... It’s just a really great classic American burger, which is one of the hardest things to get right.”

Meat: 10/10
Bun: 9/10
Toppings: 9/10
Value: 8/10
Overall: 9/10  Supremely satisfying and brimming with all the right flavours, BurgeRoom proves that, above all, a great burger is about quality ingredients, carefully prepared. Sounds easy when we put it like that...

  • Huge disappointment. Went there because of TimeOut. Waited 50 minutes for 2 burgers. The bun was burnt, the meat tasted sour, the fries were soggy. I can't imagine it being an off night when I asked and people say this happens all the time. Giving a 1 is generous. Re-evaluate Time Out.
