My partner and I were at the recent Robbie Williams concert and we booked a table at this restaurant.

The place was very empty when we arrived, with all the concert revellers walking by.

What a real shame for the public, as this place's food was very good. The service was slow at start with an eastern European young lady struggling to understand our requests for a drink, which got so frustrating we nearly walked out.

One of the managers stepped in and took charge of our drinks. I was glad as when we eventually had the food, it was of an excellent standard. Fresh, tasty and good value for money.

If you are ever in Wembley and like food where you can share and enjoy the taste of Lebanon cuisine, I would strongly recommend.

Four of us decided to give this a try based on reviews. The restaurant doesn't look much from the outside so we were a bit nervous and there were only two other tables even though it was Saturday evening. We had a selection of ten starters which were all delicious, especially the bread to accompany them. We all ad different main courses of either meat or fish-again all really tasty. We had our coffee upstairs in the Shisha garden and tried the coconut flavour which was lovely. We all had three drinks too. The total came to 124 pounds and was well worth it. We would definitely go again.

We visited Babylonia for lunch before an event at Wembley, the restaurant is ideally located for this purpose, only a 5-10 minute walk along High road to the stadium.
We had a selection of 7 starters which we shared between the 6 of us plus 5 main meals and drinks, the bill came to £94 including a 10% service charge. This was excellent value as the dishes were all freshly prepared and tasted delicious with a variety of flavours. The waiting staff were all very pleasant and regularly checked that we were happy with our meals.
Will definitely return when in the area.

Lovely resturant. Delicious food. Everything so fresh & the very best quality. If you are ever in the Wembley area well worth a visit. Excelent service & very reasonably priced. Will deffinatly visit next time we are in london just wish we had such a place in Plymouth. The shisha area on the roof was delightful too, lovely atmosphere to sit & relax in after a lovely meal

We went to the restaurant based on the other reviews and had high expectations. For a friday night we were surprised it was so quiet - just us and another table who seemed to be family/friends of the owner. We picked three starters to share - the spinach and cheese pies had both run out so we had these vegetable rolls that appeared to be frozen, not fresh as we had hoped. The halumni pitta was lovely but the meat one was dry. The mixed grill main was again a plate of dry meat that my partner really struggled to eat. The chips were frozen and dry again, and it was a waste of £11. My aubergine stew was really nice but at £8 (the same as a meat one - yet aubergines are only 50p in sainsbury's!) the bowl it came in was tiny - though the plate of rice it came with was the biggest serving of rice I'd every seen! Yes, I was full at the end but because of the rice and not the lovely stew! The bread that came with it was nice. We had come along expecting the kind of restaturant where the food is like "mama used to make" - rustic and traditional. Instead we were left wondering how genuine the other reviews are......our first tripadvisor disappointment.
