SquareMeal Review of
Perched seven floors up, in the heart of Richard Branson’s lush Roof Gardens, Babylon’s vista stretches from the Gherkin to Battersea Power Station. Throw in a terrace bar with views of the gardens and cityscape, imaginative cocktails, charming waiters, “quick service” and weekly live music, and you have all the ingredients for an incredibly fun night out. It’s a shame, then, that the food is the least impressive aspect of this “hidden-away treasure”. The cooking once had that wow factor, but the current menu fails to deliver: our smoked chicken salad with charred leek felt hastily assembled, and a duck-leg Wellington was too unsubtle to justify a £30 price tag, although a white chocolate mousse with pistachio ‘soil’ ended proceedings on a high note. On balance, we’d recommend taking advantage of the “great-value” set lunch deal – in high summer you’ll feel on top of the world.
Christmas menu - 3-course lunch £39.50 or 3-course dinner £59 per person
