We loved the food, restaurant and the ambience. However we really wanted to enjoy the sun and the rooftop (which was mostly reason to pick the place) however we were seated inside as the outside was meant for Bar food only. Given it was not packed at all we requested to be seated outside however was abruptly denied and advised that we will be seated in depend on the menu we ordered from.
If it was busy we would have understood however that one hour we had our lunch for the bar space was neither overwhelmingly busy nor it would had be difficult to place us outside.
Apologies for ranting the food was amazing wasn't certain about the customer serve.

Sadly, a big disappointment. A good idea poorly executed. The staff gave no introduction to any of the dishes...which would have avoided the huge disappointment when the lamb neck eventually arrived in a yoghurt soup.

A vibrant restaurant with beautiful decor and very comfortable seating. There is lots of room on the tables, so it's very comfortable. We had the sharing menu and it seemed like there wasn't a lot of food. The lamb was certainly filling, and all the food was delicious, but it felt underwhelming and under-catered, for the price. Not to mention being charged for tap water (!) and other additional surcharges.
It's a lovely restaurant and the staff were great.

Interesting venue, good food and service, only comment is that it's part of a huge dining/drinking area rather than intimate restaurant, but it felt contained once inside

I took my girlfriend out for her birthday, good food and service. I regret not bringing a candle to make my partner embraced when the dessert came out. Definitely recommend and will return to try the other items on the menu.

Wonderful venue for a date night, casual dinner or even a small group outing. The service was amazing, and contributed to the overall experience. The food is of great value and exceptional quality! I would 100% come here again.

The food was over-priced for the quantity; the ambiance was loud; one male waiter (? head waiter? was wearing a suit) was extremely obnoxious and would berate the female waiters incessently and even had the audacity to ask us to tip him when we weren't being served by him which ruined the evening from start to finish, before we even sat down he yelled at one of the waitresses not to take us to the front counter to get to our seat. His poor attitude soured the whole evening. 100% would not recommend to anyone if he was still around.

Our experience was really good. Just 3 little things to tell you.
We didn’t like very much the desserts. The presentation was very nice but not the dessert.
The waiters were very kind and professional but a little bit to pushy.
Because of the open kitchen there was some smoke in the air.
But honestly we were very happy and the food was very good
Thank you

amazing dinner experience with bablon. food worth all the penny you spend and service. Our waiter was very attentive plus point there. Ash was delightful and we named her walking talking menu of Babylon all dishes she recommended was amazing. She had answer to all our questions and dietary requirements which made our evening more relaxing. Full thumbs up to the chef for the best food

We were seated in the 3rd dining room away from the whole restaurant in the over flow section as the staff called it. No one served us for about 10 minutes when we arrived
All 5 dishes came out in about 15 minutes so we had to quickly rush and eat them or they would get cold
Not a great experience that’s for sure

Amazing delicious food and great service. Although the restaurant itself can get very cold due to being slightly open so we felt a strong draught throughout the night.

Food was excellent but found the menu a bit over prised. The service started out good but then it was a bit hard getting a waiters attention to order another drink for example. Also when we ordered an entre of dips it would of been nice to know we needed to order the bread separately.
