    The place is nice, the vibe was energetic and the food was nice,. But the preTheatre meal was extremely poor value at $60 per head for some dips and a modest main (one shish tawook). it is a very poor offer and I would recommend people order from the menu

    We loved the Babylon restaurant - food is amazing ... BUT we have never been there before and we walked into the rooftop area ..no-one was there to greet us except for the security guard. We didnt know where to go ..he just said sit anywhere we like .. so we did but when we scanned the code and saw the menu it was different to what id seen online. We tried to grab a waiter but he didn't seem to know anything. My husband eventually got up and walked around trying to find someone helpful we eventually did who then explained we wanted the restaurant NOT the rooftop bar.. So we eventually found our spot 15 minutes after our booking time.. For the love of god have someone meeting people when they arrive to give some assistance to people who need it ie who haven't been there before.. we were tempted just to walk out at one point... The security guard was nice enough but gave no assistance to us that was helpful... maybe a sign at the entrance for people looking for the restaurant would be helpful my score on this review is only for the actual restaurant The rooftop experience would get 1 star

    really good space, staff are really friendly, the food was ok. I would have like a little bit less deconstructing the middle eastern cuisine and a bit more focus on the flavor. but overall a good place to have a nice dinner with friends

    Food was very nice, as was service. However we sat at the very back of the restaurant with no other guests, so we really lacked the ambience.

    Good portions and delicious food. Service was outstanding. The drinks and coffee were not as good as the food, and one of the mocktails on the menu was not available, which was a little disappointing. Atmosphere was great, the bathrooms were clean but the taps are a bit difficult to use. Overall, would recommend, thank you for a great time.

    Simple dip arrived to start but wine came 20 minutes later after three requests. Other entre came after 30 minutes. Mains were satisfactory. Requested bill and after 5 minutes saw staff chatting and laughing near the register. I angrily got up to ask again for bill and then some action. Then I was confronted by another staff who insisted on knowing what my problem was. She was arrogant and gave some story about a patron with a food allergy. I asked her to go away as her attitude had by then destroyed our evening. We also had to ask for our wine glasses to be refilled during the meal as no one bothered to notice our empty glasses.

    Food is packed with flavour and beautifully presented. The chicken Tawook kebabs are the most succulent chicken kebabs I've ever had. And the Tahini chocolate ice-cream is next level. Sensational high-end ME food. Highly recommend

    Great experience. We dined before 7 pm on Saturday so took advantage of the theatre special and for $60 got a banquet that was more than enough. Loved the rice, chicken, fish, fattoush salad, fresh bread etc. Babylon has a beautiful setting with inviting lighting. Cannot wait to go back.

    Great location in Sydney city centre with a rooftop bar. There is a lot of details in the food and decor which I really liked and service was very good. Music could come down a bit in volume. The rice pilav was a favourite with yum flavours, lamb was good but meat itself lacked flavours. Hummus dip was tasteful, however at $18 somewhat rice as bread was additional. I would return perhaps to rooftop bar for snacks and drinks.

    Food was great but our table was assigned to the nearest to the Kitchen so the smell was quite strong. And had to move to different seating. But the service was good overall.

    Unfortunately, this was a disappointing first (and last) experience at Babylon. My husband's choice was not available and the dish he chose was too salty for him to enjoy. The wait staff were friendly but not always attentive so it took a while to order a second glass of wine and get the bill. For the prices charged we were disappointed.

    Second time visiting this restaurant and was very disappointed. We talked it up to our parents so much but our experience recently didn't live up to our initial experience. Service was so slow, food took ages to come out and the place was really understaffed. Food was mediocre this time around. Won't come back to this place for the 3rd time.

    Good food, ambience and service. Had the wagyu beef, was so good just melted in my mouth, although the portion was quite small for the price. Hummus with the zaatar bread was devine. Cauliflower didn't enjoy too much, tasted more on the burnt side than flavourful.

    We were hesitant to come here as the reviews said that staff were rude and service wasn’t good but thought we would give it a go. I’m a very picky eater so the fancy menu didn’t suit me. My husband said the food was nice but not worth the $60 for a roast chicken - although you have to take into consideration the rent they would pay for such a location as well as all of the other expenses. Food was presented beautifully and we didn’t have to wait long. Service was great, staff were attentive and very friendly. Venue was beautiful and if it wasn’t raining we would have sat out at the bar afterward. Overall a nice experience. Would I go back? No only based off my very small window of food I eat. But a nice experience other way and an experience to check off the list.
