I was really after a take away burger as my wife was tired and waiting back at the hotel. Having left New York two days ago I was having trouble not eating american food. Looking at the menu at the front door I was greeted by the waitress and told that "yes " they do take away. I ordered two... More

My friend saw a groupon for this place and we decided to go check it out. I usually do like my burgers but this one I couldn't even finish. The service is pretty dismal, and it took a long time to make up a couple of burgers. When our burgers arrived, a quarter of it was missing - which was... More

I visited this place located on Old Bailey Street, in Central, Hong Kong, after purchasing a deal from Groupon. They have made use of the space in the basement of some building. The business has seen better days and the decor needs an update. I turned up expecting it to be busy but there was only one other very young... More

My friend and I took advantage of Groupon promotion and finally made it to this joint. I remember it located at a 2/F corner shop of a more crowded street. It was busy and quite popular. To our astonishment, it has moved to an underground location on the slope (Old Bailey Street), with lack of decoration and maintenance and wall... More

I stopped in for some quick take out last night just before 10pm. I ordered two burgers and an order of poutine. The burgers were good with high quality toppings. The poutine did not use cheese curds, so it was not a proper poutine. However it was still good. The bill came to about $200.

Great service, great flavours, great burgers... Specially after a night out. I got a 20$ discount just by showing the app "Locaclick". The price is pretty reasonable now.

We have been here a couple of times and even had take out once. For me, the burgers are delicious, juicy and actually tasted like beef instead of processed meat patties. We have tried the Italian Job, Double Truffle, Hawaiian, the lamb burger and the Bangkok chicken burger. Hands down the double truffle is my IT burger with lovely truffle... More

I've walked passed this joint for years. It's situated on the 2nd floor of a walk-up by the mid-level escalator. It's been around for years. My assumption that it must have been really good. Had a really bad craving for a big fat juicy burger yesterday and decided to pay a visit. Wanted something a bit more authentic than MxD... More

Attended this restaurant in company with four others. We all decided to try something different from the very exhaustive menu related to burgers, which included the allowance for building your own ingredients. Our meals were absolutely delicious and filling with the meats well cooked and fresh ingredients. Was a great option to the usual burger brands. Definitely would return again... More

Being a specialty burger place, you'd expect it to be excellent. It's not. Burgers are good, just not as good as you'd expect them to be for the price you pay. Average stuff. McSoreley's burgers are definitely the best.

Staying in Central

Neighbourhood Profile
Central
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
