    We had an absolutely great time at Butta Burger - came on a recommendation and it didn't disappoint! Our server Charlotte was so lovely and really made an effort to see how we were. Couldn't fault a thing!

    This was the best food we have had un years. The food was just incredible, the service was outstanding and the whole experience was the best we could have asked for. We did not get the name of our waitress but she was amazing, recommended cocktails, gave us more napkins without asking and was always close by if we needed anything. The 8% service charge wasn’t enough in our eyes and I wish we could have tipped her so much more as she was incredible! We are from London and both agreed this chicken burger was the best chicken burger we have ever had and that there is no place even close to being as good as this in the whole of London. 10/10 all around I highly, highly recommend!!

    This was hands down the worst burger I have ever eaten. That is saying something too as we regularly go out for a burger and like to try as many new places as possible. My partner and I both thought the food was awful. We left at least half of it and left within 30 minutes of sitting down. The burger was greasy and bland. There was a rancid after taste which I would guess has something to do with how it is cooked and the butter used. The chips were covered in salt, which I tried to brush off. After a few bites of the disgusting burger I had no appetite left for them anyway. My partner said her chicken burger was overly greasy, salty and the sauce was overly rich and sickening. The only person I could imagine enjoying that meal is someone who is addicted to a poor diet full of copious amounts of fat, sugar and salt. There really is nothing nice to say about it. I made a comment to my partner whilst waiting for food that I hoped the food was better than the decor. We were joking about the lack of imagination and which picture on the wall was our favourite (They have an entire wall covered in framed pictures of the 'Butta Burger' slogan and nothing else). Unfortunately the food turned out to be even worse than the decor. The steps leading to the toilet were very slippy. I would imagine with a couple of pints it would be very easy to slip and break your neck. The toilet was small and grubby and neither of the taps worked. We were hoping to pay the bill and slip out quietly after the worst meal out we have ever had. Unfortunately they tried to add a service charge to the bill out of the blue, which I asked to be removed from the final amount as I could not bear to pay any more than the amount already owed for such awful food. If you want to eat crap then go to McDonalds. At least they serve crap that is satisfying to eat in the moment and probably has better nutritional content too.

    We enjoyed our burgers very much however found the ambience rather disappointing. Staff filling mayo bottles from industrial sized containers. The back looked really messy. Also, we were there with a baby, you have no changing facilities, whilst trying to change her on my lap, the light motion sensors went off, leaving me with a half naked baby trying to get lights back on. Do let your patrons with babies know that you can't accommodate changing. This was very frustrating. The service was good, but it felt like you were slightly understaffed as wait to get burgers and to pay was rather long. Don't think we'll be back.

    Really good burger place, chicken is also excellent (fingers and burgers) and the chicken gravy Mayo and black garlic sauces were both on point, I’m not a big Mayo fan but the flavour was great. Fries were what you’d expect and the mozzarella bites were fine, service was pleasant and the complimentary water jug for the table was a nice touch but could of done with being colder. Would return or order from again.

    Everything was brought at the same time and I feel we should have been asked if we wanted the chicken wings served first and then the burgers. Burgers were poorly seasoned, if at all and for me lacked flavour. The plates the burgers are served on are far too small which resulted in a very messy meal. They should also serve finger bowls or wet napkins with the wings. The service was good and the staff extremely nice but for me I would not return on the basis of the disappointing burgers. Wings were superbly though!

    Food and service was good - tasty fries and burgers, especially the vegan burger which had lots of juicy pickles. The only real negative is the environment.... we were sitting in what is basically a corridor that runs from the entrance through to the toilets and kitchen and it just doesn't have much atmosphere or feel very comfortable. It was cold, the bench seat is unpadded and uncomfortable and there are chairs stacked up at the far end of the dining space which gives it a bit of a 'budget' feel. It doesn't encourage you to sit for any longer that you need to, but maybe that's the vibe they're going for.

    Beef Burgers were good but my partners burger was missed from the order which meant she has to wait while everyone else had food. The Chicken Kiev burger was over sauced which not only caused the delicious coating to slide off the chicken it also made it very salty due to the Parmesan. All the sides were cold which is a shame as they were tasty. Overall i would have to rethink a return visit.

    The food here is excellent for fried chicken. I’ve eaten here a few times. Tip: book a table in advance. We turned up and were told they had no tables (when the restaurant was clearly not at capacity). We were told there were no tables till 5pm. It was 2pm. We stepped outside and booked a table online for 2.30. Not sure what was going on there.

    Huge amount of choice on the menu and all pretty reasonably priced. Normally I begrudge having to order fries seperately but we got one portion of the parmesan and truffle fries to share between two and it was huge... honestly, it would have done three people. And the actual food itself was insanely good. I genuinely think this is the best burger you can get in Edinburgh just now

    We booked somewhere for a burger and we enjoyed what we ordered. I had the truffle burger which had a ton of truffle mayo on it. Fork and knife needed! The chicken was huge. Only thing I would mention is I felt it was a teenage date night. We brought up the average age for sure. But it was decent food and value for money

    Visited on a Friday night, just under £100 for 4 burgers, 2 fries and cheese bites, 4 beers & a milkshake. Service was good & quality of the burgers was good but think it was slightly over rated. Space between tables is limited especially for adults. Toilets were not very clean. No soap only hand sanitizer.

    Have seen Butta Burger on social media, and having read the reviews we decided to check it out. We were not disappointed! They’ve done a fantastic job with the interior, and overall marketing and aesthetic (we ended up buying two t shirts!) The employees we spoke to all had a really great vibe and were incredibly attentive. We started the evening with some Colas with vanilla floats. Unfortunately they were out of Irn Bru, but I’m sure they would have tasted great. Definitely recommend this. For our mains we got the Chilli Vegan Cheese and Truffle Chick burgers with a side of Togarashi fries. The vegan burger was faultless, it had a great balance of spice, texture and taste. The Truffle Chick was pretty decadent and I would also highly recommend. My only feedback was that there was a lot of the truffle Mayo which then overpowered some of the other flavours. The spice mix for our fries was impeccable and I’d love to get the recipe so I can attempt to recreate these. We ordered these with a black garlic sauce which I think should be available on tap -it’s that good. Had a really awesome experience overall and really looking forward to returning in the future.

    Food was exceptional as per usual! Unfortunately service here gets worse every time - staff forget repeatedly to take your order or bring anything over, no chance of getting a second drink after your first and if you do manage to get someone’s attention it’s rarely service with a smile. Will visit again for amazing food but perhaps a different branch.
