Alas, first visit after quite a while and the standard has dropped. Overcooked sweet fries, appalling coleslaw (if that's what it was!), no in-house beconaise sauce and the salad brown and wilted. First time after many visits that we've had a poor meal here. The...chap serving was attentive, but the food so terrible. OK, I didn't complain at the time, but we went there exhausted after a long day to eat, and didn't have the will to prolong it. Can't think we'll be going back there in a hurry.More

Burgers were fresh and tasty, very good. But the one thing that stood out was the service. Really good. Attentive, quick and super friendly. Great choice if you fancy a burger in Oxford .

Amazing burgers, succulent fresh ingredients. Super skinny fries and onion rings that are just delicious. The onion rings are huge and crispy. Burgers cooked to exact requirements. Staff friendly and accommodating. Great experience

For one reason or another every time we come to Oxford we end up at GBK and to be honest we’re confused as to how they arent always packed! The service is fast, the people are really nice and their burgers (specially the chicken ones)...are FANTASTIC 😍. Today we tried a “special” burger called “Side Chick”…. More like MAIN CHICK 🤤. Went out of our way to ask them to please add it to their regular menu (p.s pineapple on a pizza is a no, but pineapple on a 🍔 takes things to a different level! Thanks again for another great date night GBK!More

I was really disappointed not to be able to eat at GBK the other day. I have multiple food allergies, and while they have an allergen menu which the manager came to discuss immediately, it doesn't break each menu item down into into parts, so...I was unable to order anything by asking for items (such as mayo - egg allergy) to be removed. I've given 3 stars as the staff were all lovely.More

Visited here 20th Aug for some lunch after hearing great things online and they didn't disappoint. Delicious vegan burgers & our server was brilliant regarding a nut allergy. He was extremely helpful, the allergen food came out separately and so also a big thanks to...the kitchen for sorting that!More

The lady attending was amazingly friendly and checking everything was okay with everyone, though the restaurant wasn't busy, it speaks volume of her customer service. Burgers were good and though it was MY fault not to check for student discounts, it is too pricey for...a burger that doesn't include fries...Truffle fries make up for flavour, but as a chain, sadly, it's unlikely they'll offer it as a paid upgrade at all. Five star for the lady, 3 for the prices.More

I ordered on uber eats and they got our order wrong by mistake. Spoke to the manager (can’t remember name but was a nice man) and he was so friendly and helpful at getting us another order sent out again free of charge and extra...items to compensate. great food quality as per usual, would recommend the grilled chicken satay burger and the salted caramel milkshake😎More

I placed my first order with gourmet burger kitchen: what a complete waste of my money and such a disappointment. I ordered a medium rare classic pattie, all I could smell even before opening the delivery bag was burnt charcoal. This is what I received,...a completely charred, inedible 'burger'; if you can call it that. NEVER AGAIN.More

As always good GBK burgers, that’s what we came for. Restaurant could do with being a bit warmer and tables cleared a bit faster but the food was good, and student discount so we couldn’t complain.

We initially walked into the neighbouring burger bar however they were not great despite their welcoming building their staff were not as helpful so we walked out and saw this was next door, their exterior was not as poinient and their were a lot less...people dining inside, which you would normally take as a bad sign of the service/food, however this was NOT the case. Far from it in fact the food was brilliant well presented, clean, safe, tasty, fresh and very enjoyable staff service etc all amazing could not have faulted them. The brilliant peg idea is very inventive and this made me want to stick a review on trip advisor for them. They placed a peg in on our center piece for the table then once they had checked our meal they took the peg away so they could be easily reminded of who had or had not been checked on. The only critism I had was this was done after the adults had scoffed the food into our faces, but the servers were friendly and food came quickly we were only sad to not be able to encourage the child to eat every bite as he wasn't as hungry as the adults. A doggy bag was needed. I've posted some photo's to validate the quality of the food, well worth a visit if you are into a burger and very very skinny fries.More

My meal here was a terrible experience from start to finish. Firstly the menu: just burgers, no other options, and really nothing gourmet about any of it. It is all massively over-priced for what you're actually getting, which is a nasty burger. The menu also...advertised special deals when you download the app, which we all did, only to find out that it doesn't work properly, and the deals did not come through. It's false advertising - simple as that. When we reported it to the staff they said they knew about it, but the place had done nothing to remove the copious advertising for the faulty app. You have to order at the bar, where there was a massively long queue, probably full of other people complaining about the app. Once we'd ordered we waited for ages. The restaurant is too crowded for the staff to move around between tables, so there's a horrible cramped feel, and the risk that you will be wearing someone else's meal at any moment. The drinks we'd ordered were supposed to come with free refills but it was not possible to attract anyone's attention to get those refills. When the food finally arrived it became clear just how overpriced it is, as the greasy burgers arrive on small plates. You even have to pay extra for any sauces except ketchup. If you want a burger do yourself the favour of going to somewhere that serves a wider menu that includes burgers. You will be charged less for better service and better food.More

Came for first date in 19 years so was big deal. Waited 2 hours for salad so conversation got stale. Burger in the end was satisfactory. Left very distraught.
