This eatery is domiciled in a former private home with a nice garden. It is not your typical hamburger joint. The ambience is distinctive for an eatery of this genre. I enjoy the burgers w french fries as well as the fried chicken.

Ate here as a group and each ordered different burgers so we could share and try out more than one flavor. We chose the bigger patties and thoroughly enjoyed our choices. The ambience here is very nice, a little house turned into a restaurant and you can see the chefs at work. We went at a good time when there... More

I see that this burger joint is getting very mixed reviews on Trip Advisor. Perhaps I just happened to eat here on the chef's bad day, but I have to say, as a burger addict and connoisseur, I was very disappointed and couldn't even finish my half of the burger that we ordered. The restaurant is located in a big... More

Being a weekend there was quite a queue waiting. I have to say the burger was really good an juicy, different that what Ive... More

I came here for lunch with colleagues and loved the place. The food is delicious and the decoration is really cool. Communication was a bit difficult at first but we managed to order everything with a little of japanenglish. Friendly staff too. I would definitely go back.

Awful food, shame as the setting is nice for Tokyo. I'm sad to say it's not the first time I've eaten here and been more than disappointed, lesson learned!

I read about this place in an article in Smithsonian Magazine. I read the owner had spent sometime in the States, and wanted to recreate and perfect the American food staple of the hamburger. So, we made our way over for dinner our first night in Tokyo. It was kinda tricky to find at first, especially at night. But we... More

With few min. walk from Gotanda st., you can enjoy good hamburger dishes -to say the least better than McDonald's or burger king -in west Tokyo.

Ok, so when I heard we were going to an American cheeseburger place in Japan, I was like, seriously? But since my boyfriend hates sushi and we did that last night, ok, I guess he needs some beef. But this was AMAZING!!! The bun! Oh the bun! It surrounded a perfect patty of melted cheddar bacon perfection. It was juicy... More

Franklin Avenue has been servin' up flame grilled gourmet burgers since at least the late 80's (maybe longer). Expect to throw down at least 1,000 yen for one of these babies, but your taste buds will thank you. T hey do have a delivery service so that's the most convenient way to experience these burgers if you live in the... More

Staying in Shinagawa / Gotanda

Neighbourhood Profile
Shinagawa / Gotanda
In Shinagawa, an office district shares space with luxury residential buildings and the scene is constantly changing with rapid development. Ikedayama park and Togoshi park are great places to see beautiful traditional Japanese gardens with ponds, as well as enjoy the changing seasons. Shinagawa was a post and a port town during the Edo era and the lavish old Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples at Shinagawa and Ebara are very popular. It's a great place to get in touch with the old Edo atmosphere on a pleasure boat cruising along the canal. The neighboring area around Gotanda station is a study in modern contrasts filled with unique restaurants and a lively nightlife.
