GBK – a disappointing three stars

January 9, 2013

Huge fan of GBK the first few times I went. Tastiest burgers made of great beef, nice rolls, great chips. The last couple of times I’ve been though, they have been a bit of a disappointment. I couldn’t decide if it was that I expected too much – overhyped them somehow. But now, on this third time of finding them not as good as they used to be, I think I’m leaving them and going elsewhere.

Don’t get me wrong. They are still good. Just not great any more. Could it be that now they are completely owned by Nandos’ that quality has been sacrificed? Three of the four of us were underwhelmed – a lamb burger, a beef satay (had to be sent back as cold) and mine a ‘Don’. The one of us who opted for the TaxiDriver was well chuffed.

Chips were crisp and dips packed a punch. Pinot grigio was a bit acidic, but daughter’s elderflower and mint  fizz was surprisingly refreshing.

Service was easy and pleasnt, if a little over eager to clear the plates. But it’s not cheap. So it’s going to be a Byron’s next time. Or maybe a return to Kerbisher and Malt….
