Most restaurants were crowded and Golden Brown seemed to have a slightly shorter queue so opted for it. Serves Burgers and Hotdogs in a seated environment. Service was very fast and prices were reasonable. Ordered a burger which was very good especially the accompanying fries. It's located on the 3rd floor of a shopping centre around the Jingumae/Harajuku area opposite... More

We visited for lunch over the holiday period. We discovered Golden Burger three years ago on our previous holiday. This time we visited as a family of seven. Overall it was OK but not as good as the previous time we visited. The fries were a bit cold but the burgers were OK. Service was surprisingly average for Japan (with... More

Short version: Really tasty and fresh burgers served quickly at a reasonable price, in a nice looking diner. Great for lunch or a light dinner. Long version: I was worried that this place was going to be over priced and a posh take on what should be a cheap and simple meal with it being in such a high end... More

Let me start by saying you should only go to this place if you're willing to wait for delicious food. If you're in a rush, you may want to try another place. In my opinion it is absolutely worth the wait. I have been here on two separate occasions and was very happy to see the quality has remained the... More

Went to the tiny one in Omotesando Hills, with our small child who wanted a hamburger. Assumed it was non-smoking due to the location and the fact that we didn't see any smokers or ashtrays when we entered. Then a Japanese couple with a baby came and we overheard them being told it is a smoking establishment. We had already... More

The assiduous and characteristically Japanese focus on quality has made Japan the source not just of excellent Japanese food and things, but also THE destination for some of the best quality of anything that can be made. Along that vein, Golden Brown is where the Japanese focus on quality and incremental innovation makes for a damn good hamburger. I had... More

Have visited Golden Brown in Omotesando Hills a few times now and it's one of our favourite (real) burger joints. Usually have the hamburger or cheese burger and they are quite big in size and very generous with the fillings. Love the fries!! While it's a small place, and when it is busy you need to line up, the wait... More

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

Neighbourhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
