The restaurant is really beautiful and service was well done during the dinner. However, I booked 2 weeks in advance and called 1.5 weeks in advance to verbally confirm my booking. The gentleman I spoke to confirmed times. The day of the dinner I received two missed calls, upon calling them back they had told me I booked after their last sitting, which was only 15 mins before the kitchen closes (why would that time be available to book if it was too late?). I explained I had already spoken to someone and they never said that the time I had booked was too late. They did apologise, but said I would have to get there 25 minutes before my booking. I was not happy with this outcome as I had people travelling from a few hours away to make this dinner. They ended up being able to let us have dinner at our initially organised time. But this frustration and stress did dampen the night at first.

Nice enough food but not for the prices charged. Its marketed as a high end restaurant but the service does not back this up, staff were unfriendly and not very attentive. We were told we had to vacate our table by a certain time even though the restaurant was quiet.

Other issues include difficulty in finding the front desk on arrival and air con was freezing at the dinner table to the extent 2 of our guests had to put on jackets. Overall, I expected more and left disappointed.

Great ambience for a Westfield, but several incorrect orders from the waitstaff tainted it a little. The fact there was no toilet paper in the toilets really finished it off. Drinks were well priced (but we didn’t get what we actually asked for) but the food prices were a bit high for the quality. Paper napkins too - they should have put them in the toilet haha

I can’t express enough how amazing Babylon was. Every single staff member was amazing. Especially out waiter which I forgot his name.

We got seated in a private room area which was fantastic! Such a beautiful little space. The food and cocktails (and mock tails) were so great!

Then we went to the bar section where the music was amazing and to top it off sat in another private little area that Made it feel like I wasn’t in Sydney. Almost European vibes.

Would recommend to everyone

Interesting twist to the traditional Middle Eastern offering. Tasty and fresh. Our favorites were: the Murray Cod, Lamb Shish Tawook and Grilled Octopus.
The taboulleh was yummy and presented in a very unusual way.
After lunch we continued on in the outdoor rooftop bar which is very cool!

While the food was absolutely amazing and came out in a timely manner, the service otherwise especially for clearing the table and serving drinks was very poor.

We ordered drinks first thing (bottle of prosecco, 2 beers, 1 lemon lime bitter). We were onto our 2nd round of food from the tasting menu when the prosecco and beer arrived. We had to wait another 10 minutes so we could cheers when the LLB arrived.

Throughout the lunch, often new dishes would be placed on the table without clearing away empty plates. We didn't get offered fresh plates for our main. One side dish arrived after we already finished the mains.

Further when we finished, we ordered coffee and montenegros to have with dessert. We got our dessert and finished our dessert before waiter came back 15 min later to ask how we would like the montenegros. It was then another 15 for them to come back and advise they didn't have them (which is fine, but why did this take 30 mins in which we could have ordered something else?) We then scrapped this order and asked about our coffees. Which finally came out 30 minutes after ordering and well after dessert.

It was my first business lunch since covid started for which I had to get Vice President approval from my company. I was looking forward to impress and spoil my company for a nice EOY celebratory lunch. I would not be recommending this for any professional occasion based on the poor service even though the food was incredible. You lost out on a lot of revenue from us not being able to get drinks either.
