the food was tasty, service was good but slow. try the rose water and dates was very tasty, good place for a date or a group hookup, if your not familiar with the Iraqi food scene. naans were excellent and swamari (spelling) was reasonable with the naans go for the turkish delight if you like the high end. not as classical Iraqi but thats not a bad thing

firstly i have been going into Babylon Cafe purposely at lunch times as they have been advertising a 3 course business lunch for £8 for almost a year but where is the deal???? a waiter has now told me they are not doing the deal and have never done the deal so WHY advertise it,,,im not paying full price for food at lunch times, will not return at lunch time again, and the portion size is not as good as it first was,,,went all the time to Babylon Cafe but will now only go once , twice at the very most a year

I have been there many times with my friends and we have had mixed grill and shawarma and traditional naan bread home made .. So the food and service is great ... The most importantly that the staffs are so friendly and so polite .. We never disappointed at having meals there with my family and pals ... The best BQQ mixed girl is the one I have ever had with the best naan bread .. Can't wait to go back there for a dinner with my girlfriend ... We always enjoy it so much ... Thanks to all staffs in Babylon cafe

was there today..I ordered M kebabs, Half way through I realised the kebabs weren't cooked well. I decided to let the staff know but instead the manger came over and was very argumentative about it , he said why didn't I tell him earlier, the problem was only half of it was cooked. I was very disappointed at their services, they didn't offer me a refund me, or gave me any discount and they never apologized either.

Would never go back there again.

Went there a few weeks back to try the sharing platter recommended by an Iranian himself. Got there and the people were all very friendly. Simple decor but cosy. Our starter was the "Babylon Special Platter" that had baba ganoj, hummus and falafel that was served with fresh naan. The main dish came quickly after our starter was cleared (we were already almost full from the starter) and we just could not get enough of it!

Would recommend as the prices are also extremely reasonable. A good value for money.
