It was surprising the short menu that this local has. But on the other hand, they have a high quality meat. It is up to you

Bunsen was a pleasant surprise considering that people were telling me that the Temple Bar area was some sort of a "tourist trap". I went there for dinner and found the quality of the food and the service very good. I would recommend this restaurant...More

Me and my partner had the double cheeseburgers and it was amazing. I’m sad that this isn’t closer to home so I will probably never have another! It is pricey but I think the burger was worth every penny. We looked at surrounding places to...More

I've been to Bunsen with my wife, I had a Double Cheeseburger and my wife a Cheeseburger. Both burgers were amazing, they were cooked just as we have ordered. The price is fair, it's not expensive.

Tiny menu (on the back of a business card), And all the better for it. Fantastic burger and fries at a reasonable price. If you want anything else go elsewhere but you'll be missing out!

Burger was average. If you want a good tasty Juicy American burger, I would personally go to five guys. At five guys it’s moderately priced and you will not leave hungry.

This is not my first visit but I must say every time i come here it tastes better. The cheese burger with stringy chips is delish. Can wait for my next visit and please keep up the good work.

After a long day we popped into Bunsen without a reservation. Although the place was very busy we were greeted immediately and seated after 10 mins, very efficient service. The menu consists of the burger, cheese and double patty being the only options. So really...More
