Babylon Restaurant - Sydney
We had to wait for our pre booked table, food wasn’t all that, forgot one of our orders, waitresses often ignored us or were just bimbos, atomsphere was great. But would of been tastier eating at El jannah
Great food service staff aren’t experienced enough to support the ambience and finning experience
Food was amazing, but the service was just straight appalling!
Had to physically go find people to take our order for food and drinks.
The waitresses didn’t seem to communicate with one another. One cleared our plates and asked if we wanted any desserts but we hadn’t even finished receiving all the dishes from the tasting menu.
One waitress asked if we wanted another bottle of wine but we hadn’t even finished the first bottle and turns out she just couldn’t find it.
We got the tasting menu and when food arrived, it was just plopped on our table with no explanation of what the dish was.
The food itself was great and I would come back purely for the food but you guys really need to work on training up your staff!
The restaurant area is a modern oasis away from the noise of the bar area. Hardest thing was finding where the host is. Depends which escalator you arrive by! The wait staff are friendly and helpful. Food was delicious and everything is pretty much designed for sharing. Left full and happy and it didn’t make a big hole in my wallet like I exprected. I’ll definitely go back!
Great food but service needs some improvement. Doesn’t seem to be much communication between staff.
We had a great night at Babylon. The food was excellent, and plenty for all of us. The service was attentive and efficient.
My only feedback is that there is no need for a 10% surcharge for a group of 10 or more. It's just not necessary and takes the shine of the great food and service.
The food was lovely! Better as a group so you can try more dishes.
They catered for me being lactose intolerant too!
Really enjoyed the night.
arrived at 11:50 to get seated and organized before my clients arrived however restaurant only opens at 12. No one at the desk until 11:58 and then made everyone wait 2 minutes until started allowing guests to enter. Maybe set your booking time from 12:15 onwards to save this problem?
Food was amazing, service in restaurant was a bit slow - had to get the waitresses attention on more than one occasion to be served and have our wine topped up.
All in all great experience and I will be back.
While the food was lovely, the pricing is outrageous! The restaurant management should consider that customers don’t want to leave their establishment feeling they have been ripped off.
Very average experience - food was tasty but over priced, little to no vibe or atmosphere in the restaurant and the service in the bar was embarrassing - 3 bar staff all who had no idea what they were doing and took 15 minutes to service about 3 people. Restaurant staff were better, attentive and friendly but not what i would have expected for the price paid and the hype around the place.
We were charged $16 dollars for table water from the sink that tasted hot and warm And changed it to voss sparkling water cause it wasn’t pleasing
Service was annoying and delayed
Drinks where pretty bad at the start due bro having someone on an interview make our drinks. Hostess was really rude. Waitress had to be called after 10 minutes of waiting to order. Wife ordered an espresso coffee and it was literally two drips of coffee in a cup. The food was amazing from the kitchen and would highly recommend if the service would have been better was really dissalkinted in the service despite the great venue and food
I attended Babylon on Tuesday for lunch at 12 noon with my husband and two children my daughter is 4 and my baby is 2... it can be nervous bringing young children to a nice establishment however the staff and service were exceptional...we were able to order immediately and the food came out very quickly and was enjoyed by the children also... Definitely get the lamb it is amazing... thank You
It missed the mark. The reception staff had attitude and we were served by about 5-7 different waiters. The place is poorly managed. Desert was poor effort. For the price I’d expected better.
Service was fantastic, food was incredible! Absolutely loved it here!
Lovely food and great ambiance.
Very welcoming and outstanding service with an exceptional atmosphere!
Ate at Babylon in the restaurant and the food was very disappointing compared to the bar area. We were advised we couldn't have the bar food.
Food was overpriced and tastless. Was really looking forward to going there as it was a surprise for my bfs birthday.
Fabulous food and not bad service, but really let down by disorganised kitchen and bar. Got a couple of dishes up front and waited forever for the others. A glass had a chop and we waited a good 20mins for a replacement. Just a frustrating experience. The last experience was quite similar but it was in the bar area. This was supposedly full service restaurant area. Don't think I will be back.
It is a beautiful place service is really slow in the restaurant. The outside area has better service and less wait time.
Fabulous! Food was amazing but the best thing was the fantastic staff. We had a great night.
Thanks for dining with us Liz, we looking forward to seeing you again soon!
The food was excellent but the portions were small and isn't truly value for money. Ambiance was generally ok but the music a bit too loud for conversation
Found the food, service and ambience very good - will be returning before Christmas.
Thanks for dining with us Christine, we looking forward to having you back soon!
Impressive flavours & great service. I will be coming back again
