In town for Grey Cup

Stopped in for late nite takeout while walking back to the hotel. Very tasty chicken plate. Lots of sides. Could use real garlic sauce instead of tzatziki. Very decent portions and very filling.

Nothing fancy about this place. But what you get is a super stuffed wrap full of chicken and a variety of other fillings. Tasty wrap which oozes with flavour and juice. Always visit when in town.

Shwarma is what they do. The chicken is fabulous. The wraps are well stuffed . 3 small tables outside to watch the world go by or take your bounty down to English Bay. Excellent value.

Babylon Cafe on Denman are sexist, possibly racist, and overcharging scammers and I will never eat there again. They skipped over me in line to take the order of the guy behind me. When I told the guy working there that I hadn't ordered, he insisted I was with the guy in front of me, who I wasn't. When I... More

We were staying in a hotel around the corner and had been walking by Babylon for 2 days and commenting on how delicious it smelled. The opportunity to visit finally came late on a Tuesday night - they were out of lamb, so we both ordered chicken. The service, quality and value were remarkable. We ate our Chicken Schwarma Plates... More

If you like chicken schwarma wraps this little place is fabulous ~ very generous size wrap stuffed with fresh and delicious fillings/veggies and sauces of your choice (aioli mayo, tahini sauce, hot sauce, tziziki, hummus) and the chicken is excellent. All the staff are always very cheerful and provide the best service!

This is definitely one Vancouver's hidden gems, one of our favourite places to eat - though we usually go to the Nelson St location as it's closer to our house. Great value for the amount of food you get. Everything we ever had has been delicious and the staff have always been very nice. I usually have the falafel and... More

We enjoyed our shwarma lunch plates at the Howe Street location. The food and service were both wonderful. It was just off Howe Street and was easy to find. We would eat here again!

The entire concept of shawarma was new to us when we moved to Vancouver, but we fell in love with it immediately. We visited Babylon based on online reviews, and we were hooked on our first visit. Over the summer, we took 3 sets of visitors to Babylon to pick up picnic dinners that we brought over to English Bay.... More
