Arrived rather early before they got their rush, as last time we went it was very busy due to the popularity- this time it was very quiet.

New menu, which I thought was very good- prices have gone up which doesnt really surprise me- they DID have the best burgers in town and have to make the most out of the popularity. However, when you put the prices up, the one thing you SHOULD NOT do is make the portion size smaller. The 'chips' have been replaced by American fries (I thought it was an Irish pub, not American), and unfortunately there was not real taste of potato on the inside- very crispy, almost making me think that they had been double fried.
After a couple of fries, I investigated the burger a bit more. I had the Texas BBQ Burger- the burger patty has now diminished in size (quite a lot) and the BBQ sauce now tastes like a tabasco, spicy sauce which is rather depressing.

Unfortunately after 5 years in Hong Kong, I have to say it is no longer 'The Best Burger In Town' but closer to a rip-off. The only way to keep a customer happy when you put prices up is to at least keep the portion sizes the same. As a person with Irish blood, I was not overly happy with the 'fries' and can assure you not many Irishmen would be!

Service was good, just a shame about the above.

Have I recommended it before? Yes.
Would I recommend it now? No.
