We were staying in a hotel around the corner and had been walking by Babylon for 2 days and commenting on how delicious it smelled. The opportunity to visit finally came late on a Tuesday night - they were out of lamb, so we both ordered chicken. The service, quality and value were remarkable. We ate our Chicken Schwarma Plates ($8.75 each) at a little table on the sidewalk out front - enjoying every last bite.

If you like chicken schwarma wraps this little place is fabulous ~ very generous size wrap stuffed with fresh and delicious fillings/veggies and sauces of your choice (aioli mayo, tahini sauce, hot sauce, tziziki, hummus) and the chicken is excellent. All the staff are always very cheerful and provide the best service!

This is definitely one Vancouver's hidden gems, one of our favourite places to eat - though we usually go to the Nelson St location as it's closer to our house. Great value for the amount of food you get. Everything we ever had has been delicious and the staff have always been very nice. I usually have the falafel and vegetable wrap and my partner the chicken shewarma plate - both amazing! Their homemade pickled radish is another favourite.

The music can be pretty loud sometimes, but doesn't bother us too much. It goes along with the atmosphere of the restaurant.

If you're looking for some great tasting food at affordable price, this is definitely the place to go.

We enjoyed our shwarma lunch plates at the Howe Street location. The food and service were both wonderful. It was just off Howe Street and was easy to find. We would eat here again!

The entire concept of shawarma was new to us when we moved to Vancouver, but we fell in love with it immediately. We visited Babylon based on online reviews, and we were hooked on our first visit. Over the summer, we took 3 sets of visitors to Babylon to pick up picnic dinners that we brought over to English Bay.

The shawarma platters are divine, and our vegetarian friends loved the falafel and vegetarian platters. Great value, delicious flavours and great portion sizes. The *only* downfall to our beautiful shawarma picnics were the wasps that decided to dine alongside us...but apparently they have good taste, too!
