We were lucky to be able to get a table just before the shop closes for the noon time. And one last burger bun left too!! We had the lamb shoulder burger and the chicken pie. The lamb was juicy and with the sauce that goes along with the burger, it was delicious, except a bit salty for my taste bud. Chicken pie was creamy and packed full of ingredients!

Worth coming for a good western food if wanna have a break from Thai food during a holiday trip. It's near the popular Health Land Massage place, so head down for a try and have a chat with the friendly chef who gives his 100% effort in preparing your meal :)

The only con is your clothes will stink from the cooking and the oil smell as it's open kitchen, thus ventilation isn't good.

Had to make 2 trips to the place as if was closed for no apparent reason the first time. Very small and cramped with the kitchen pretty much on your table. Food average so surprised it's so high on TA ratings! No toilet facilities so overall, not much to get excited about.

A hamburger doesn't usually blow my mind. They can be absolutely delicious; succulent, juicy meat, an adequate dosing of spices, etc., but they are not the food I usually write home about. At chef bar, it's a totally different story. The wagyu burger I had was not only cooked perfectly, but tasted so delicious I feel it is a disservice to call it a hamburger. The beef was some of the highest quality I've had anywhere. The spices were unique, flavorful, yet not the least bit overpowering. The homemade chips are phenomenal(same for the homemade ketchup they are served with.) If I had the money, I would ship this chef off to NYC to open a chef bar in my apartment building.

Arrived there on my own at 8pm and had the best service and hospitality. The food was amazing!!!! And the burger (wagyu beef) with mushroom and goats cheese was delicious!!! The fries where homemade, salt plus tomato sauce delicious!!! Was a great experience and something you have to do when you are here! The owner even makes his own butter for the bun, and the bun is soft with a glossy shell. A great meal and best burger I have had yet. A must!

Don't think about trying anything else - the burger, made to order, the fries, made to order coupled with the homemade ketchup is heads and shoulders above the rest of the crowd.
Cozy place, only a few tables, and always busy is a good sign.

Good service, great price equals great value.

In the mood for a burger - try it.
(I've seen some of the other menu items being served - they also look yummy)
