Babylon Restaurant - Sydney
Gatherings in Middle Eastern culture are traditionally food centric. They are enjoyed and shared with family and friends, evoking a strong sense of comfort. We believe sharing Babylon's menu will help better uncover the rich flavours and textures of the Levant cuisine which stretches modern Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine, Syria and Turkey.
Please note that if your preferred time at Babylon is not available, we may have availability at our sister venue Duck & Rice, which is right next door and can also be booked on OpenTable!
Absolutely disgraceful customer service from the woman and man on duty that night! Honestly I will not be returning back after the way the woman spoke to me who was working that night. I think it has to be said and I hope you raise this issue as her attitude was completely unprofessional. Open table gave me confirmation of 1 1/2 hours booking (photo attached) and she tried to get us to leave quite abruptly by putting the card machine in the middle of the table after being seated for less than 50 minutes! Wouldn’t even pour us the wine we had left, then proceeded to argue with me about it and harassed me to send an email of my confirmation to the restaurant as she was adamant my booking only said 1 hour which was completely incorrect and not my mistake, not okay at all.
Great Place, great food! Would like to come back!
Was really cold in the restaurant.
Menu is very limited.
Staff were really nice.
Great break from iso. People were super friendly and helpfull and the lamb was to die for.
They were super friendly and accommodating even when we were late.
Foods were delicious with plenty of vegetarian options, and staffs are wonderful.
Definitely coming back
Amazing food (lamb shoulder is to die for!) and service always great. Highly recommend.
Ordered the lamb shoulder which was just divine. Cabbage kebab was also a suprise and soo delicious. Came early for drinks and the ambiance which was lovely. Staff were very helpful and friendly.
Food was spectacular. It took us 6 minutes to wave down a waiter.
Lovely delicious food, great atmosphere. Staff were lovely and friendly.
Your security guard (Tim) on arrival was very welcoming and friendly. Music was good in the bar area and food was superb.
Would not book a dinner here again. A good spot for drinks.
The roasted cauliflower is devine
No complaints, really enjoyed our group lunch! Will definitely be back.
Babylon seems to be a triumph of style over substance - great decor, great location, good food - all let down by lacklustre, disinterested and ambivalent service. Food arrived in very quick succession and then we didn’t see any service staff again until we hailed one down for the bill - all plates etc were still crowded and stacked on the table. Also had to leave table and ask for more wine for the table at the bar.
Love this place and been 5 times in last 8 weeks
Great with friends or client lunches which is why I’ve been going back.
Service has usually been A* but Was slow and less responsive this last time. I expect it’s a one off. Usually service as good as food
Highly recommend and will be back
First time customer and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Food was delicious, service fantastic and ambience of the restaurant was sophisticated casual dining.
Looking forward to going back
i feel that the standards have slipped here a little since I last ate at Babylon. The food wasn't as good and the service was quite slow. We had the set menu which for $70 is excellent value but for a couple of little things, this meal could have been outstanding. The salmon dish needs more salt and more acid to balance the richness of the fish. It was lacking in flavour. The charred broccolini needed lots more oil and more char - it was like steamed and smoked broccolini. It also needed more salt. The chicken was nice but I really missed the lamb. Perhaps lamb prices are too high but I would say reduce the quantity and increase the quality.
Great restaurant with wonderful variety , have previously visited and enjoyed. Only disappointment was to be charged for bread initially and then given more we didn't ask for and to have been charged for it
Nice ambience, fresh food that came out quickly. Was only told we had a two hour sitting when I arrived which was a bit disappointing, prefer to know that detail upfront.
The food was fair but they missed one thing from our order and it took a long time so we ended up cancelling it. No one really came to us to check so we had to tell them that we were still waiting for our missing order. If we didn't notify them, I'm not sure if they would even notice. So yes, I was a little disappointed.
Great setting. Food & Service good. Fair value.
The best good I have tasted in so long. The cauliflower salad was to die for
Food was delicious. Loved the wood fired chicken. average service. A slow wait for getting attention, your bill and adding water.
Amazing food and service always. We have been here many times and always impressive. Lamb shoulder is 10/10 and all dishes are highly recommended
This was our second time eating at Babylon. The food was outstanding again. Had drinks in the bar area first and love the atmosphere. Definitely recommend.
