Babylon at The Roof Gardens
Set lunch menu is worth the tripWe enjoyed the food and the setting - the gardens are lovely although very quiet in the day.18/05/2013 00:00:00Always a PleasureI love this restaurant. It never disappoints. The set menu is very reasonable and is great for week-day lunches with colleagues or friends. Give it a go I'm sure you will ove it too.16/05/2013 00:00:00LunchWe had a great lunch, our waiter was helpful and friendly, and the food delicious. Will definitely return.06/05/2013 00:00:00Great food with the price tagFor my wife's 30th & we could not fault the food. I had rung to ask beforehand if they did anything for birthdays & they said that you got a cupcake with a candle & it would be in the booking. This was only done when I prompted them discreetly and when it came it was a small sugar cone with some whipped cream in it, which was fairly underwhelming. Other than that the service was excellent. At the weekends the roofs gardens, are a club and as a Babylon customer you get half price entry (£10pp). Very poor, too many people crammed in, got pushed about alot and lots of lads peacocking. I wouldn't bother with the club again. Really didn't enjoy it and wish I had saved my £10pp entrance fee and not bothered with my £5pp 330ml bottles of Peroni!04/05/2013 00:00:00great treatBabylon at the roof gardens are a fantastic treat to celebrate a special occasion in gorgeous surroundings with great food and friendly service. Would highly recommend it.30/04/2013 00:00:00Great view, and great foodBooked a table online for dinner while in Kensington for an exhibition. When we arrived all the outdoor tables were taken but the staff let us us a reserved table until those guests arrived, which allowed us to enjoy the views across central London.
When we went inside to eat, everything lived up to expectations, including great food quality and attentive service - thanks!24/04/2013 00:00:00A beautifully sunny lunchA beautifully sunny lunch - both the weather and the food/service! Delicious miso-baked aubergine to start followed by a perfectly judged mackerel. The greeting staff were a little chaotic (it seemed that there were a few new starters that day - I don't mean first courses!) but waiting staff were relaxed and humorous without being too sassy. I'll certainly be going back!24/04/2013 00:00:00Really great atmosphere. TheReally great atmosphere. The food was superb and the gardens are amazing!!23/04/2013 00:00:00Fantastic view and great foodThis was the first time to the Babylon Roof Gardens for our restaurant group. We thoroughly enjoyed the view and the meal. Would recommend it!22/04/2013 00:00:00Great meal at great venueI took our family of 6 to Babylon at the Roof Gardens to celebrate my wife'd birthday. Everyone had a very enjoyable meal and enjoyed the cocktails. We will definitely be going back.20/04/2013 00:00:00EntertainingMy 2 clients thoroughly enjoyed dinner followed by drinks in the garden on Friday night - wonderful food and service.12/04/2013 00:00:00The Roof GardensYet another fab meal at the Roof Gardens to celebrate my birthday, if the weather is nice no better place in London to sit outside and have a drink and admire the view.12/04/2013 00:00:00Great birthday treatLovely venue and amazing gardens. Really enjoyed the food and the whole experience. Would definately recommend to friends07/04/2013 00:00:00I picked this for my wife'sI picked this for my wife's 50th birthday celebration, and couldn't have made a better choice. It's a fabulous setting, and had that feeling of somewhere special. The food lived up to the recommendations I'd seen from previous reviews, and I was surprised at the quality and range of the menu considering the price overall. The wine is on the expensive side, but then again,good choice, quality and some unusual selections - I went for an Alsace Pinot Noir which I know quite well from working over there, but have never seen on a wine list in the UK. The table magician is an added bonus.07/04/2013 00:00:00We loved the atmosphere andWe loved the atmosphere and the food was fantastic.
Would recommend this restaurant for business or family dinners.
In the summer the outside terrace would be lovely.
Service was quick and the friendly.06/04/2013 00:00:00Fabulous experience, excellentFabulous experience, excellent food and great service!06/04/2013 00:00:00Food with a viewReally nice evening spent entertaining work colleagues from overseas. Table with a great view over London and good food to go with it.04/04/2013 00:00:00Great ExperienceOur first visit to this restaurant, excellent, service, top quality food, my only negative comment is that we had booked for the special set menu, this was not offered. This however did not spoil our evening.03/04/2013 00:00:00Babylon"Great Food" roof GardensIt was me & Partner's 2 Year Annivesary and wanted somewhere that had Great Ambienec and London Scenery. Babaylon The Roof Gardens ticked all those boxes. The service was very good and with reception offering to take our coats before dining. The staff where very friendly and there where this group of guys who where singing along with instruments entertaining guest with their decent singing which added to a great evening. Both myself and partner will be coming again but in the day to take in the London scenery from the 7th floor.02/04/2013 00:00:00Monday lunchArrived after a busy morning at the Ideal home exhibition. Staff welcoming and after a hiccup with our table we were moved without fuss to a window table. 3 course lunch for £23.50. Our starter a wonderfully fresh Calamares followed by perfectly cooked Sea Bass on a bed of cannellini beans with chorizo and large salad. Sticky toffee pudding to die for all washed down with a cold fresh Chenin Blanc, £100 good value for such a great venue.01/04/2013 00:00:00Fabulous Gem in the heart of LondonGreat evening. I am allergic to sulphites in wine but the Sommelier at Babylon could not have been more helpful. She spent time to find a wine suitable for me, and as a result I was able to enjoy a wonderful bottle of wine with my fabulous food and husband.
The food was beautifully presented and portion sizes were perfect for us30/03/2013 00:00:00Girls' night outHad a lovely dinner- 3 courses from a set menu with glass of champagne for £30, and lots of extra wine on top! Service was great. Would go again for a special occasion. Would recommend when it's warmer so you can go outside and really appreciate the views.28/03/2013 00:00:00Take a lift to heavenFour of us had a superb lunch at Babylon at The Roof Gardens. We had a special menu for London Restaurant fortnight though we had not planned it that way. We ate sqid, parfait and pear and walnut salad which were delicious. Our mains were roast chicken and sea bream all of wich were fantastic. The service was very impressive and all the staff made us feel very welcome. Added to the very impressive views over London and the wonderful roof gardens which we explored after our meal made us feel that we had been somewhere special. It was n't our first time there and it will continue to be on our regular dining out list for the future. The wines are a little expensive but the prices are easily offset against the good value meals.27/03/2013 00:00:00Enjoyed an excellent lunchEnjoyed an excellent lunch at Babylon. The food was amazing, melt in the mouth lamb! Portions very generous so unfortunately had no room for dessert! Staff friendly & very welcoming. A great deal with the offer.25/03/2013 00:00:00lovely eveningHad a lovely celebratory dinner table next to window had lovely views.
Food was beautiful.25/03/2013 00:00:00LunchWe had a lovely lunch to celebrate our friends birthday. Everything about the meal was excellent. The view looked lovely but unfortunetly we visited on a day which was very wet so we were unable to get outside. I will certainly recommend to others and hope to visit again.23/03/2013 00:00:00Delightful lunchHad a really lovely lunch here not too long ago. As a vegetarian, it was a huge relief (and surprise) to get a set menu where the vegetarian option isn't mushroom risotto. The food was lovely and quite interesting, the view was spectacular and even though it was busy, the place had a really relaxed ambience to it. Had slight difficulty getting the waiter's attention more than once but that was only a small quibble to what was overall a great meal.23/03/2013 00:00:00The food was superb and reasonablyThe food was superb and reasonably priced, although the wines are a little on the pricey side. Cocktails were great, served with nibbles. Variety of breads and oils arrived before our meal also which was a nice touch.21/03/2013 00:00:00From the moment we arrivedFrom the moment we arrived at this restaurant, we knew we were in for an enjoyable evening. We were warmly greeted and enjoyed a nice glass of something whilst we perused the menu. Our waiter was perfect - attentive but not overly so. The food was excellent and could not be faulted. We shall return when next we have something to celebrate.20/03/2013 00:00:00Perfect!Took my mum as a treat and we had an amazing time! The food was divine - the lamb melted in your mouth! The service could not be faulted! Even had a little magic show at our table!17/03/2013 00:00:00Great Venue!Roof gardens is an amazing venue! Great food great wine! Service is fantastic! Lovely views of London! This is a great place to go with friends or a date! Sunday lunch is great value for the quality of food and service!
Also make sure you try the cocktails - very very nice!
Overall this is one of my favourite places to eat in London especially on a Sunday !!!10/03/2013 00:00:00Wonderful place to dineWent to Babylon for my wedding anniversary and was happy with the services provided by the restaurant. Will visit again.09/03/2013 00:00:00BrilliantYou just can't beat it for views & value.
Absolutely loved the private lift to restaurant level, the greeting, classy decor, food, service & those views. Very lucky to have most of the place to ourselves as we dined late lunch.
Impressed ;)05/03/2013 00:00:00special service for sunday lunchfrom the drinks in the bar through to the bill the service was excellent, we felt very welcomed. I'm heavily pregnant and they offered to bring cushions to make my lunch more comfortable - how lovely is that! The food was fabulous, I had roast beef followed by an unusual coconut dessert, both excellent. Nice view (although don't go for this alone there's better views in London) The only weird thing was having a rather loud table magician wandering around, but maybe others like that sort of thing03/03/2013 00:00:00Delicious Birthday LunchAs a treat, we took a friend here for lunch for his birthday. The setting is lovely, the view out over London and the heated terrace was gorgeous. The champagne cocktails that we had to start were delicious and from then on everything was great. The portions did not look like they were very generous, but after three courses, we were very full. The wine was lovely as well and as the restaurant got busier the service still stayed at the same level. I was very impressed by this restaurant and would recommend to anyone.02/03/2013 00:00:00BabylonWe went to Babylon for lunch last Friday. The restaurant was full and had a real buzz. The set menu was £23 for 3 courses which was excellent value.01/03/2013 00:00:00Had the 2 course set lunchHad the 2 course set lunch and it was lovely! Great value for money - we had good sized portions and the food was incredibly tasty. My boyfriend said it was the best soup he had ever had! The only small negative was that our main meals were not served piping hot. Service was excellent, efficient and friendly. We enjoyed the brightness of the restaurant and the fact that the tables were not all squashed next to one another. We also didn't feel rushed to leave which is a nice change from many other restaurants these days. Would definitely recommend and we will return again.22/02/2013 00:00:00Roof GardensBooked for a mid week birthday lunch. Our table didn't have a view of the gardens but we were able to have a look around after our meal. As it was a sunny and clear day (even though it was a cold February day), the view was great and we could certainly picture what it would be like in the Summer months.
Set menu was good value and we all enjoyed the food. Would definitely visit again.19/02/2013 00:00:00A most enjoyable experienceA most enjoyable experience in delightful surroundings with friendly, attentive staff and delicious food. Drinks on the expensive side, but the set lunch menu offered a decent choice of dishes at a reasonable price.18/02/2013 00:00:00Friends re-unitedThe venue was the ideal place for a small group of friends to meet up, catch up, enjoy good, good wine and good company.
Service was excellent, thank you08/02/2013 00:00:00I love this place! Spent theI love this place! Spent the whole afternoon there.
Highly recommend the lunch offer of 2 courses for £20.
The cocktail team were outstanding!01/02/2013 00:00:00Good food, informal atmosphere.Attended Saturday lunch. This restaurant supplies excellent food in an informal atmosphere. The view of the Roof Gardens and of London are noteworthy.25/01/2013 16:00:00great viewsthis is my 4th visit - waiting staff as always friendly attentive - - wine was a bit pricey - food was great value with set menu01/12/2012 00:00:00Babylon at the Roof GardensI like taking friends here for a special treat because of the marvellous roof gardens. Best thing to do is get off at the 6th floor and walk through the gardens until you get to the staircase for the restaurant. It's a magical introduction. People don't expect to see flamingoes and mature trees on top of a faceless looking office building! Food's great too and the service was perfect on the day we went.16/10/2012 16:00:00Almost biblical.....in a good way!Our celebratory lunch at Babylon for my eldest sister's birthday was superb. Food was great, the service from our Milanese waitress was excellent and a good time was had by all. The only slight downside was that - unlike our previous lunches there - the restaurant was at best half full, so on this occasion the atmosphere was lacking. That said, Babylon remains a great place to relax and eat.16/10/2012 00:00:00Had a very pleasant meal forHad a very pleasant meal for four with one of our customers who we wanted to say thank you to. The meal was excellent as were the wines and service. Later in the year, my daughter went to the nighlcub wiuth 20 friends for her 21st and they thoroughly enjoyed the evening and felt special.19/09/2012 16:00:00Great food!We had a great lunch at Babylon, the food was delicious. Lovely decor and atmosphere. Would recommend.13/09/2012 16:00:00Special placeThis was our second time at Babylon at the Roof Gardens. We liked this restaurant very much. Best to go when there is not an event so that you can explore the rooftop gardens. Food is excellent and staff are very good. This may become a favorite when we are eating in the Kensington area.04/09/2012 16:00:00delightedHad a lovely meal,excellent value for money with the Top table offer...lovely outdoor space.06/07/2012 00:00:00Outstanding location, great food !This was the second time we visited this restaurant.
Unfortunately the weather was bad so we could not eat outside over the balcony.
Nevertheless the view was still outstanding, the ambience was great and the food excellent.
Definitely recommended.02/06/2012 16:00:00
