If you fancy brilliant burgers in a fun setting, Area 52 in London’s Whitechapel is the place for you! This spot has not one, but two themes: American and superhero, and they both compliment each other perfectly. With great power comes great responsibility, mind you, so you’ll need to arrive with a huge appetite because the portions at Area 52 in Whitechapel are truly out of this world. Burger-lovers will have to try one of their cheese and steak burgers served on a brioche bun with crisp iceberg lettuce, mixed salad leaves, house sauce, tomatoes, gherkins and cheese. Oh baby!

If you haven’t had one of Area 52’s freakshakes yet, you simply haven’t lived! We recommend going to this Commercial Road joint with a gang and ordering one of each, or you can’t go wrong with a Nutella or Orea freakshake if you’re the only one brave enough to try them. American food in London doesn’t get much better than this! Book a table at Area 52 on Quandoo now to avoid disappointment.

Food was really good but portions weren’t. The service was quite terrible but gave it a good because of overall experience. Burgers where really nice but onion rings where bland with ni taste.

An unusual superhero themed restaurant that delivered on all counts - food and models. No fuss spit and sawdust attraction. Recommended for all superhero fans.
