Harden's says

The famous Parisian ‘hamburgé’ brand with over 55 branches in France and the Middle East has quietly opened a London site, serving nine flavours of burger and frites. The brand aims to combine "finest quality French cheeses with sustainably sourced British meats".

“French… and have to admit pretty good” – London’s outpost of this Gallic ‘Maison du Hamburgé’ chain (that’s 50-strong over the Channel) is to be found in South Kensington’s ‘Little France’ and gets a consistent thumbs up. The addition of lashings of different French regional cheeses is key to distinguishing its menu options.

London outpost (in South Ken’s ‘Little France’) of a Paris-based chain, with over 50 branches in France and the Arab World – this ‘Maison du Hamburgé’ is “not to be missed” for its “great value and utterly delicious burgers” (e.g. “with raclette! who knew?”)

The famous Parisian ‘hamburgé’ brand with over 55 branches in France and the Middle East quietly opened a London site at the start of 2020: a return to the capital after a failed attempt at colonisation which ended in 2014. A civilised venue in Francophile South Kensington (north of the tube), it serves nine types of burger along with excellent frites and looks set to carve a niche in the capital’s crowded marketplace for burger joints.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
