Very good food however my only gripe was that between the 4 of us, the bread we ordered was insufficient and we had to order another portion. Surely you'd provide enough bread to go with the hummus. We saw in the kitchen there is are several massive loaves of freshly baked focaccia sitting there waiting to be eaten. Aside from that the drinks were great and food equally tasty.
Food was amanzing, place is really nice & service was really good!
Great food but unfortunately it was empty and therefore no vibe!
Hi Petra, definitely the food is great and packed with flavours. We are launching a new menu soon so you might want to pop in and try some of our new dishes. We do have live bands on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening and we just added one more session on Sunday lunch which is also worth checking out. Many thanks, Babylon Team
Excellent food we just waited for a really long time. Decided on a tasting menu, waited ages and the food first came out slowly then very rushed towards the end so we had multiple dishes on the table and couldn't enjoy it as much. We got really full on bread from the long wait as well. We had multiple servers so it was a bit confused as well. No one stopped explain or give more details about each meal that we were trying, just dropped dishes and left. Drinks were served separately and to different ppl at different times, due to the multiple waiters. I ordered one mojito and it cost 20 bucks. and we were pretty tired by the end of the experience, due to the long wait. We did end up taking most of the meal home as well, kind defeated the purpose of going out but they were nice to pack it all up for us.
Service and food was absolutely incredible. Definitely the best food we’ve eaten out! The interior design is so stunning, it doesn’t feel like you’re in Sydney. Have recommended this place to so many people already!
Enjoyed the service and atmosphere. Good eas different than expected but authenticity good
Over all experience was great! Although our little toddler gave us a hard time because we were expecting to order fries for her, would have been nice if they had something to cater to kids too. But she later enjoyed the pan fried Murray cod ! Absolutely loved the whole experience!
I couldn’t get the guy name’s who serve us but he is from Indonesian. He is the best always checking on us to make sure we have pleasant dinner and we did. He has an excellent people skills and super duper friendly compare to others stuff there. The food wasnt my cup of tea but the chicken was very good, tasty
Hi, Thank you for your feedback and we are super delighted to see that our staff were friendly, pleasant and constantly checking in. We are changing the food menu in the upcoming weeks. the chicken will remain on there as its also has been a highlight, but we are introducing a lot more dishes. Many thanks, Babylon Team
The food was sensational and each dish that came out kept getting better and better. The level of service from our waiter on the night was exceptional.
The only thing that left a bitter/sour taste in our mouths was the drunk, disrespectful patrons who kept waking past the dinning area from the outdoor bar being loud and using offensive language. Not the best when you're trying to have a nice anniversary dinner with your wife.
I think the staff should have been more assertive and asked these individuals to take their seats in the bar area.
Hi Shane, Thanks for visiting us and we are so pleased to see that feedback regarding the food and the service. we do apologise regarding the noise as the venue has one exit only and bar patrons need to walk past the dining to exit the venue, however we will pass on the feedback to the venue managers to look into and come up with a solution. Many thanks, Babylon Team
Great venue. Great atmosphere and quality food and drinks. Exceptional service.
Hi Rich, Thank you so much for your generous review and feedback. Food is definitely quality and our menu is always changing due to seasonality. So hopefully we will see you again soon as our food menu is changing in the next couple of weeks. Many thanks, Babylon Team
The food was not server for the first hour of the 1.5 hours of brunch. Very disappointed with the variety of food as well since we only got 3 dishes. It was a birthday brunch and we ended up leaving so disappointed. Wouldn’t recommend because of poor service.
We had the bottomless brunch and it was absolutely amazing. The food was incredible and the staff are so friendly.
amazing amazing food & service!! cocktails were spectacular and the bartenders over at the bar were brilliant (shoutout to Bartender Pat who took care of my friends and I!!)
Hi Tanya, He is definitely a unique individual and we are so please to see that he exceeded expectations and because of your lovely feedback we will be rewarding him for going the extra mile. Many thanks, Babylon Team
Great hidden away restaurant in Westfields. Food was tasty. Middle Eastern with a modern twist.
Service can definitely be improved. I had 2 different service assistants , and both had messed up the orders. They had either not taken the order down correctly, or had simply forgotten a part of our dinner order !
And, it also felt a bit rushed ! So overall- POOR service !
The food is amazing and the kitchen is so consistent. I have dined here three times, but the experience is let down by lacklustre staff. Service is so poor, consistently bad and we had to basically jump out of our chairs to get staffs attention.
Hi, We are so glad to see that feedback regarding the food and deeply apologise about the lack of service from our end. We have passed on your feedback to our management team who are moving rapidly on the recruitment process as we do pride our selves here at Babylon with great food and excellent service. Many thanks, Babylon Team
Amazing food, absolutely recommend the Lamb Shoulder to share. The only observation was that being too close to the kitchen there was quite a bit of heavy food smell, which is fine but perhaps it was a bit too much. Other than that, very recommendable, fresh great quality middle eastern food.
Hi Walter, I agree the lamb shoulder is a must try and we are glad to see that you enjoyed it. Having an open kitchen make it a bit more challenging. please let us know upon your next visit and will be sure to secure you a better spot in the dining area. Many Thanks, Babylon Team
The night we booked the resturant was incredibly understaffed- I waited for 15mins before I was spoken to or acknowledged. The COVID officer did not check my COVID sign in or sign off that I was here. The waitress was doing her best as was very understaffed but rude- it’s fine to be stressed but not fine to be rude to customers. The food and drinks were delicious but I hope the resturant sorts out their staff
What a disappointment! Over a $700 guaranteed spend booked in advance and the treatment my sister, her friends and I received on her big day was nothing short of a question mark to say the least. I understand its Covid-19 but dont hover around our table like disgruntled locusts at the thought of someone standing up to go to the bathroom! Keep your 1.5m distance they say? I would have been better off staying home all together, sorry to everyone who sacrificed their precious time and money to be there that night... BABYLON, thankyou kindly, well behind on service to point I could write a book on it 🥂
The food was good but the service was poor and at no stage did they care. It started with the waitress dropping our menus on the floor and then putting them on the table - when I objected she continued anyway. Pre-dinner drinks arrived after the food had started to arrive. Food destined for other tables arrived at ours. And on it goes. This place is over-priced which you could live with when the food is good, but not when their service is akin to a badly run burger joint.
Hi David, Thanks for your feedback. we will pass it on to the management team and the head chef for reviewal. Here at Babylon we thrive ourselves with the service we deliver and the dishes we produce and we are sorry to see that we didn't live up to our standards. Many thanks, Babylon Team
Food was spectacular- loved the chicken! Great vibe and service.
Hi Krissy, when its brined and woodfired is the key for that chicken. So glad to see the generous feeback regarding the food and service. Many thanks, Babylon Team
We tried the banquet “Taste” menu with added lamb. Average food, didn’t stand out.
Hi, Sorry to hear your thoughts on the Banquet as it is our top seller. We will pass on the feedback to the chef to review the banquet dishes. Many thanks, Babylon Team
Service was poor, dishes came in drabs even after asking for it to come all together. The food was good, however, Potions were unsatisfactory and well undersized for the price.
Hi, We are sorry to hear about your latest experience here with us at Babylon. We have passed on the feedback to our headchef to review the dishes. Many thanks, Babylon Team
Had a wonderful time, the food was delicious and the service was great.
Hi Tiara, Your feedback is much appreciated and we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit. we wish to welcome you back soon here at Babylon. Many thanks, Babylon Team
Food was amazing, service was below average (had to chase up our drinks several times, we finished our first course before the drinks even came out, had to literally wave down staff and ask them to clear the table).
The baklava was very dry and had no taste whatsoever however the rest of the food was great.
Hi Kellsie, Thanks for your feedback and highlighting the issue that you had on the day. We have flagged this issue with both the Bar and Restaurant manager to bring up with the team. Good to see that you enjoyed the food. Many thanks, Babylon Team
The food was good, without being remarkable. Certainly for the amount we paid, you would expect great food. Drinks were way too overpriced.
Hi, Thanks for your feedback. we will pass it on to the management team and the head chef for reviewal. Many thanks, Babylon Team
Babylon just never disappoints you . Amazing food that beautifully smoke flavoured. Great service and atmosphere. I am a regular since they established the restaurant a couple of yrs ago and my recommendations attracted more to visit them. You need to visit too. I promise you will love it. 😍 😉😋
Hi Tara, Good to see that you cant get enough of Babylon food and service. We love a good 5 star review and we wish to see you again in the neat future. Many thanks, Babylon Team
Very worth the cost for the bottomless brunch, definitely will revisit
Hi Jenny, Who doesn't like a good bottomless brunch. glad to see that you are thinking of revisiting. Perhaps try the restaurant side as we do have a different menu, cause you are in for a treat. Many thanks, Babylon Team
Service and environment was great. Huge portions, we got the Lamb Shoulder to share and a few other small dishes to complement. Highly recommend and will be coming back soon!
Hi, Lamb Shoulder has been the highlight of our menu. You cant go wrong with anything that's slow cooked. We hope to see you again on a different occasion. Many thanks, Babylon Team
Took my parents here, quiet enough for my dad to hear, lovely setting far enough away from the noise in the open section. Amazing food!
Hi Madeline, The design of the venue is well thought of to maintain that nice ambience for the restaurant. Glad to see that you had a good time and enjoyed your food. Many thanks, Babylon Team
Awesome food great prices highly recommend to anyone
Hi Dennis, Your feedback is much appreciated and we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your visit. we wish to welcome you back soon here at Babylon. Many thanks, Babylon Team
The waitress was rude told us that we were ordering to much bread rather rudely then just as a suggestion also as she walked away muddled under her breath “don’t act to drunk I don’t want to deal with it” we would of stayed for longer and ordered more food and drinks if the service was better.
Great vibe and really nice venue. Awesome choice if you want to join dinner and drinks at a bar
i would recommend Babylon for atmosphere and energy. food was pretty good. excellent bar. service reasonable.
The dining in experience is not worth the hype. With such a small menu with so little to offer the food wasn’t the best either. Although the bar outside did make up for that.
AS USUAL, EVERYTHING WAS GREAT. THE ONLY ISSUE IS THAT THE BREAK BETWEEN THE ENTRES AND MAINS WAS TOO SHORT. I WOULD HAVE LIKED FOR THERE TO BE A LONGER BREAK IN BETWEEN THE MEALS.
Amazing food, would definitely go back. The vibe was great also and loved the decor!
Messe brunch was great value. Delicious food and good portions. The drink top ups were easy - a standout among brunch places that often have slow drink service during bottomless service.
This was a great venue - it was also easy to book, the waiter at the start was super friendly and instructional, the food was ample and the drinks were great. Highly recommend this to anyone
We went as a group of 4.
The ambiance and food presentation were very good. The service was fun and accommodating. If you are not sharing the fauna dishes are quite big!!
