Byron Hamburgers, Canary Wharf – gives the impression of a casual, colloquial and cosy American café. Situated on the top floor of Cabot Place, together with other restaurant chains in Canary Wharf, Byron is blends in well with the rest.
By mentioning a restaurant in Canary Wharf immediately I think – well paid diners, of course! In their formal working attire, popping out for a quick lunch then, back to work. Therefore, I was surprised that Byron seemed quite busy on a weekend lunch, mostly filled with groups of young friends, couples and perhaps one or two of the blue collar employees in their dress down attire working through their weekend. Most diners lunched and left. We sat and chatted.
Byron’s menu, with no surprises here, are mainly burgers – alongside the one vegetarian burger (meaty mushrooms as the substitute) with choices of side orders that not only are enticing but surely a hamburger on it’s own without the french fries is not going to be a complete hamburger-ish feast. For the companion diner who is not a hamburger fan, salads are available. Milkshakes, through observation from adjacent tables, seemed popular.
french fries (GBP 2.95) – crispy but not hard, good, but I personally prefer chunkier chips
The service was excellent. Friendly and casual with a degree of distance and privacy from the waiters.
Service charge included for tables of 8 or more.
