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.

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.

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.

The food was good, without being remarkable. Certainly for the amount we paid, you would expect great food. Drinks were way too overpriced.

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. 😍 😉😋

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.

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.

Wonderful experience, our favourite restaurant for special occasions!
The food was so flavorsome, delicious and tasty.
The price for the food and wine is average and well priced for quality and presentation.
Well planned with the current co-vid situation, tables placed well apart, cleaning perfection and safe environment.

Had a booking at 8.45. Ordered our drinks. Then ordered our food about 15 min later. All our food was on The table within 20 minutes. Our drinks had not arrived yet. Asked wait staff for extra bread waited 20 min for it. Then asked for 2 extra wine glasses waited 20 min for them. Was not offered dessert only then to be told when we asked to order dessert that the kitchen was closed at 10.05. Our waiter let us order. Felt that we were rushed. Not a very relaxing and enjoy dinner experience. Food was great though

The service was impeccable! The ambiance was pretty quiet, but then again we are during Covid times therefore less people in the restaurant. The food was very different from what I was expecting. It tests your taste buds. It's definitely worth trying. Would go back for a night out on the bar/rooftop side.
Beautiful place also.

Some friends had to cancel last minute due to COVID issues, so we were over booked. Manager was slightly understanding, reducing the no show fee of $50 to $25 per person.
The venue ran out of champagne!!
I went to the bar for a refill not knowing the bring your empty bottle to swap policy, once I returned I was told they had no champagne left and given an ‘oh well sorry that’s it’ attitude. No alternative drinks were offered, so it definitely was not bottomless.

The food was good but the airconditioning from the Westfield was so cold, everybody in a restaurant was wearing coats and jackets, it was very unpleasant to be in this environment because of the cold. I could recommend to visit this resurant perhaps when air-conditioning will be fixed and environment is warm and pleasant to be in. At the moment I cannot recommned to anyone.
Also, everytime we come (whihc happened to be 3-4 times) they never have oysters and usually run out of olives, which is upsetting. Just order more if they are so in demand!

Took my fiancé here for his birthday and it was an easy choice since it is one of our favourite restaurants! Entrees came out within 5 minutes of ordering. Food was delicious as always without fault. The staff went above and beyond to make his birthday special. I recommend Babylon to all my friends and colleagues. Babylon, you’ll be seeing us again!
