There isn't a lot to say that hasn't already been said about Byron Burger. I checked out the Canary Wharf branch on my second day in London. In all honesty I'd been waiting quite a while to try them again after catching their shack at Park Life.
I've got to assume the branch is one of the newer openings as I've never seen more staff on the floor anywhere. More than the customers by far and it was hard to work out who was who as they were eating in the front of house as well.
To put it simply the burger was great, it goes without saying that Byron know how to cook their meat. I'd gone for the “Byron” with American cheese instead of mature cheddar, I've got to be honest and say I don’t think mature cheddar has any place in a burger.
The Courgette fries were good and the ordinary fries were passable. We quickly worked out they weren’t home cut. A chef wandered past our table struggling under the weight of several bags full of fries.
This was the first faux pas in my books. The second was when the waiter rolled his eyes at us for wanting to share a burger and two sides. We popped in mid-afternoon on a whim and had already eaten so ordering more would have been pure gluttony.
I've got to say I will definitely be going back, despite the little niggles, to try out the other outlets. The food is good and the service was quick and efficient. The decor is definitely trendy and very modern; bare walls, exposed electrical wiring ducts and open ventilation vents. Very much my kind of place in that sense and I love the school style chairs.
