Babylon Turkish Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Really enjoyed everything about this restaurant. Great staff. Good wine selection. Food very authentic compared to many Turkish restaurants I have been too. I am pretty sure a large table of Turkish people ate there too. Belly dancer was fun but not intrusive. Beautiful garden setting outside.
We were quite disappointed. Based on the reviews, we were expecting great quality food. The falafel came out looking great but 1 bite and we were chewing a frozen center. If you're not going to have freshly made food, at least cook it thoroughly. The meal was ok. Chicken kabob lacked flavor and was greasy. The vegetables were good but on the greasy side as well. The shrimp kabob did have good flavor.
The restaurant was pretty empty inside. Not the atmosphere or food quality we were expecting.
Every time we come to Miami my husband and I try to eat at this restaurant. We have eaten Turkish food before elsewhere but here it is really well prepared.The service is also excellent.Since it is a Turkish restaurant they also have for entertainment a belly dancer who dances among the tables.
They are very pleasant here. We came on a holiday weekend. The salad was very good s was the pita. They ran out of the eggplant dish I wanted. I ordered another, which I didn't like. They were very gracious and took it off the bill. My husband ordered lamb chops, which he would have liked better if it were a little charred on the outside. A little disappointing.
Sadly the quality of the food has not been as good as a couple of months ago, we have been to Babylon many times over the past year and the last two times the food quality and presentation was not up to expectation.
Berkay, our server was fantastic!
very nice garden and absolutely wonderful service. he live dance gig was really fun and even our 4 yrs old enjoyed it! everything in the menu is very authentic and tasty. cozy atmosphere for an al fresco family dining. I will definately go back there next time in Miami
The food is really authentic Turkish here. I tried several meze platters, manti and seabass. The platters and manti were absolutely delicious with neat decorations. The grilled seabass was very fresh and tasty. The waiters are extremely friendly. The atmosphere is cozy especially at night on the terrace. The prices are descent given the size and presentation of the platters. Best of the mediterranean restaurants in south beach I have tried so far!
Brought my mom here for dinner to celebrate International women's day. It was an amazing experience! All the servers were extremely friendly and they worked together as a team!
My servers name was Maleya, (I hope I got it right) and she was such a doll.
Both owners came over to our table and asked how everything was.
We ended up coming back for dessert and belly dance show at 8 pm.
Great Mezze starter (ask to substitute the Hummus!) and Octopus Casserole! Try their Turkish wine (Pinot like)... Some new waiters not as attentive as the staff that has been there since the start (tended to table of Turks next to us more than to us - understandable but not ok). Overall a great pic for Med/MidEastern food in SoBe... Female chef is very good and all dishes are very fresh! Even have a belly dancer (may sound corny but actually very entertaining) for a few songs on the weekend!
There is a pretty garden, and the staff seem genuinely glad that we were there. They willingly turn down the music, which was much appreciated. When the belly dancer appeared, the music was quite loud. She was lovely and entertaining, but conversation became impossible and we left earlier than we intended.
Amazing experience! We got away from touristic places on Ocean Dr and had an amazing outdoor dinner with friends of mine. Fantastic food, authentic turkish flavors and amazing staff and the manager!
We liked our dinner so much so we got back another day again to sit at the same spot at outside patio.
We visit Miami Beach twice a year from NYC and Babylon is our favorite neighborhood restaurant. Authentic Turkish food including excellent whole grilled fish , fabulous salads and appetizers and a great wines and cocktails. Ask for the Turkish. white wine with a name I can't pronounce. Tonight my wife and I shared the eggplant Saksuka appetizer and a Shepherd salad, which was large enough for at least two. My wife had the Lamb Shish, like a shish kabab, which she said was the tastiest lamb she has ever had. I had the whole grilled sea bass, which was fresh and delicious. We sat in the outdoor garden. The service was friendly and professional and totally unrushed. I almost forgot to mention the fresh baked Turkish bread that was served with the appetizers. If you are looking for a Sobe "scene" restaurant, this is not it. But if you are looking for very well prepared authentic Turkish food and great service, don't miss it.
