We had a family once here and we really had a great meal. My wife had the lamb which she said was awesome. I believe this place would be great for a large festive meal. I would go back.

it was their last evening on 29 Nov 2016 The local management is at fault for obliterating all the area's attractions, cinema, ten pin alley, skate park and flea market all gone , so no-one goes there. They were losing money and had to lay off staff. My favorite restaurant in Joburg for 16 years. Shame

They say you need only 6 things to survive, air, water, food, sleep, shelter and wifi. We recently toured South Africa for 7 weeks and part of our daily routine would be to find lunch and wifi. Part of our core tour principles is to have as little of a carbon footprint as possible, and thus we needed vegetarian friendly... More

Had the most amazing 'room service' supper recently. Good value and the best creamed spinach ever. Will definitely order from them again or at least try and visit the restaurant in person.

Was treated for Father's day by my fiance. We booked and received Table 2, right next to a lovely fireplace with logs burning. We again ordered lamb Kleftiko, and also Prawns Peri Peri. Well cooked, well presented and service excellent. But expensive. Some wines a little on the expensive side as well, but the fire made up for that. However,... More

We needed a place that catered with some with special dietary needs. We found it here. Good food of generous proportions. It threatened rain so we were carefully ushered inside - it teamed with rain. Friendly staff.

Babylon have been around for years, and all I've ever had there was lamb Kleftiko, and always cooked beautifully. Been a while since I've last been there, and Brightwater have taken a bit of a knock in terms of popularity, but always a good restaurant for a meal out !
