Came here with 6 friends on Sunday for my birthday. I wanted somewhere fun and figured “posh kebabs with bottomless Prosecco” would be a winner. I wasn’t wrong!!! Food is DIVINE and they do pretty much everything including the flatbreads as a gluten free option,...More

Finding the restaurant was the only challenge of the evening. After that it was plain sailing. Smaller than I expected, but 4 of us had a great time, though we were probably the oldest in Le Bab on a busy Friday by 30 years! Great...More

I can’t rate this little restaurant highly enough. The location, service, food and atmosphere were all excellent. We booked for Saturday lunchtime and during our stay lots of people had to queue up or went away. Book to be sure.

We are a restaurant in Soho reinvigorating kebabs with provenance, seasonality and technique honed in Michelin starred kitchens. Our kitchen team have come together to explore new approaches to this ancient dish. The kebabs combine brilliant seasonal ingredients and the wood-fired flavours of the Middle East, near East and South Asia. We cook on a wood and charcoal-fired robot. We offer our sensational food alongside a lovingly curated wine list and bespoke cocktails made by our in-house mixologist. We also offer bottomless cocktails on the weekends - more details on our website.
