“Prenzlauer Berg gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014

If you like eating Lebanese in the area of Berlin, go directly to Babel.
The most difficult part is to choose in their massive menu. Everything looks great (you can have a look at the plates on the large tables outside the restaurant).
We had lamb skews and a veggie mix: excellent but, you need to be hungry because it's generously served.

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

I enjoyed the shawarma(?) which was very good, the meat was a bit white for my taste but maybe because it came from the plantza and not from the spinning thing. My friend took the Falafel which wad also good.
The place look a bit if a mass, and the only reason I don't give them 5 stars is the fact the took my money and without washing there hands prepared my food, otherwise it would have received 5 stars

“Lebanese food at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

Came here almost by accident but were very pleasantly surprised. This is the place to go for fab Lebanese cuisine at very fair prices. The portions are generous and you can taste the quality of the ingredients. Babel, please open a branch in our home town!

“Great food disguised as a glorified döner joint”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

Their meat tastes really good. When it comes to fast food, this is some of the best I ever had. My girlfriend was very happy with her Falafel sandwich.

The salad seemed to be a stock salad they threw onto everything, because it definitely didn't match with the lamb dish. Mint was also used as decor, even though as a spice, it really sits well with hummus and lamb.

The inside atmosphere is like a super intense döner joint run by Arabs, so they'll shout and it gets quite noisy. It's better to eat outside, if the weather's decent.

P.S. Don't go here on a date. Garlic will destroy the night. If you just want a quick bite, or a late night snack, this place is great.

Fantastic food for v. Reasonable prices. Was recommended by a friend and he was right. It is a joint not a Restaurent.
