The service from AGI was second to non , she made us feel so comfortable and because of this service we will definitely be back. She recommends things off the menu and really knew what she was talking about.

Thank you

Best burger and hot dog in Edinburgh. We went for the chicken kiev burger and classic hotdog. Good cocktail menu, really friendly staff and they brought our dog some water in the outside seating area.

The food was amazing! We would recommend sharing a sundae ( the waiter agreed) they are enormous. We ate outside which was fine but next time we will choose inside. Nothing to do with the restaurant but we felt some people who were walking past were giving us a look of disapproval. We would definitely recommend the food and we will be back soon.

Food was incredibly salty that it was hard to eat. A member of staff was shouting in the middle of the restaurant swearing and walked out which just made the place seem very awkward.

A little expensive but really top quality food and choice of drinks both alcoholic and non alcoholic. Nice central location on George Street with plenty of well built, clean and tidy outside seating.

Chicken was outstanding and I will certainly be back!

Ate here on a busy Sunday evening, and we were seated at a table near the kitchen. Drinks service good, but food order was slow as they had so many takeaway orders coming in.
We did raise this and soon afterwards we did get our food - which was piping hot and delicious. Burgers were excellent - especially the Korean chicken. Wings were nice and spicy.
In addition we were offered 10% off the bill without having to ask, which really recovered the earlier situation.
Overall we would certainly return.

Butta burger review

Starting with the positives, the chicken burger is nice, crispy and is generously proportioned, as are the cocktails that we tried. However unfortunately that’s where the positives finished for us. The Smokey beef burger was very average and not at all smokey, the mozzarella bites were tiny, bland and awfully greasy, kimchi coleslaw was not at all coleslaw and if you expect this you’ll be disappointed. It may have been personal taste but it heavily reminded me of raw Sauerkraut. Then the Cajun chips, chips were nice on their own however they were just dry chips with dry Cajun seasoning sprinkled on top that tasted suspiciously like the Schwartz Cajun jar I have in my cupboard at home. I was reassured it’s made in house so either that was a lie, or they need to find a more inventive chef to make something that tastes better than a £1 jar from Tesco. We did mention this to staff and they took the mozzarella bites off the bill, however it was still £40 for food that tasted like it should be £20 at best. Overall would class it as overpriced, average food if you’re wanting a casual bite but wouldn’t recommend or return.

The chicken wings were our favourite! The chips we did not eat as they were very dry. Burgers were both lovely, although didn’t get the option to have 1 patty.

Staff are very attentive and helpful when unsure about menu choices. The flavour of the burger was excellent, but the patty itself was quite dry. This was my first visit having read some great reviews of the place. I had expected a very juicy, melt in the mouth texture, but it wasn't quite like that. Parmesean and rosemary fries were lacking in flavour (didn't taste or see much rosemary on them), but the cajun fries were very nice.
The amosphere was very lively, but the music was too loud, which made conversation difficult.

The burgers are amazing - fries are extra. Just a word of warning though, the Parmesan, Garlic & Truffle Fries are tremendous but are a MASSIVE portion (to share!!)

Unfortunately as much as I really wanted to love the food, and it looked amazing, I may have got you on a bad day. The chicken burger was so overpowered with salt it wasn’t very pleasant at all. My partners beef burger wasn’t as bad, but still quite salty. The chips were good. I will try again however.

Back for the second time and had a different burger. Both times were outstanding!! Service, quality of food, ambience - all tip top. They were so generous to give my friend a free sundae as well as it was to celebrate her birthday. It was at least 5 scoops of icecream in it I think! Wonderful.

Awesome food, a nice range of burgers on the menu, great dipping sauces! Service unfortunately not so good. We waited for 15 minutes after being seated to get service, which we had to ask for, even though the restaurant was quiet. It then remained difficult to get service throughout the evening, but individual staff members were nice.

First time out to a restaurant since they opened post lockdown, took my girlfriend and son here for a long awaited lunch.
I had the Truffle Chick, girlfriend the Chilli cheese. Both cooked to perfection.
Nice atmosphere and music selection spot on.
Will be back for a night time visit with a group of friends so we can sample other burgers and the sides which look ace.

Nice enough for a casual type meal. Very slow with drinks orders.
Probably won’t be back but mainly because it’s just a fast food burger place.
Aimed more at younger folk.

I had the chilli cheese chicken burger and it was the absolute best chicken burger I’ve ever had! Boyfriend had classic chicken and bacon which he also loved. We got a truffle and parmesan fries each which was a mistake as they are massive, definitely should have got one portion between us. We also shared buttermilk wings-also amazing and the strawberry and meringue Sunday. Delicious. Can’t wait to go back :)
