Had their delicious spicy wagyu burger today at the Jubilee celebration in Llandaff. The heat level from the naga chilli was perfect, enough to pack a punch but not too much as to overpower the tender flavourful wagyu. Will definitely be a repeat customer! Great food · Creative cuisine

Been wanting a burger from Gourmet express for quite sometime. Had one today and it was well worth the wait.
I had the spicy burger, mega taste sensation!! All the ingredients are excellent, I highly recommend this burger if you like spice.
Can’t wait for my next one.

Caught them at Swindon Outlet Centre today and tried the new spicy wagyu burger.

All cooked fresh. Great quality burger and was an absolute cracker, perfect blend of spice and flavour! 100% would recommend!

Paul provided the evening food at our wedding reception in May. Our guests raved about the burgers! No hook ups to the van are necessary which was a huge bonus for us. They was super easy to contact and I would recommend to anyone looking to cater their wedding receptions, parties etc.
