Square Meal Review of Babylon ?

It may not be the stuff of space flights, but when it comes to spectacular views of the London skyline, Richard Branson's seventh-floor Babylon certainly delivers. Kick off your visit with cocktails and aerial sightseeing on the balcony, before moving into the chic dining room with its green furniture, flock wallpaper and yet more London cityscapes. The menu reads simply, but dishes promise pizzazz – notably a starter of sautéed scallops with pickled shiitake mushrooms and edamame beans. For mains, try the commendable roast chicken breast with white-onion cream, violet potatoes and truffle dressing, before signing off with almond cake and banana ice cream. Dating couples abound during the week (note the card of small-talk topics on each table), but the atmosphere gets clubby at the weekends, with a DJ downstairs.

    The List :: Babylon

    I was lucky enough to be treated to lunch at Babylon in the Kensington Roof Gardens complex by an extremely generous parent of one of my violin pupils. Babylon is situated on the 7th floor and has lovely views over London and the gardens below. The prices aren't astronomical considering the location, and there is a very reasonably priced lunch menu. We worked our way through 2 excellent courses and coffee which came with a cute complimentary box of chocolates. The drinks menu is interesting - the Sunbeam cocktail with Proseco, Peach Liqueur and Sunflower Tea Tincture stood out. There also 4 bottled aged cocktails to choose from...
