Amazing experience.

This is the place to go for service, food quality and the whole experience.

The only negative would be the cost, but we went there with this I mind and had an amazing time. After all it was an anniversary. The cocktails were lovely. The view from the terrace is incredible. We had the Cote Du Boeuf, which was a special on the night we went. Cannot fault it. Cannot...more

The scene embodied much of what least appeals to me about living in Kensington - crusty, unexciting people of the landed gentry class and their wanna-be hangers on. Yes,...more

WHAT I LOVED:

Decor/Ambience - The look and presentation of this restaurant is PERFECT! It's literally perfect. It's located in a high rise building on High Street Kensington. It's called Babylon because it's suppose to resemble the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, and it literally does. I went there when it was freezing outside, so I didn't get to enjoy the gardens to their full potential, but...more
