SquareMeal Review of Le Bab

Silver Award

Disproving those gourmet kebab doubters, this tucked-away top-floor youngblood is packing in savvy Londoners, leaving Carnaby’s tourists to pick over Kingly Court’s more visible choices. Le Bab’s trump card is a clutch of hot-shot chefs (ex-Le Gavroche, no less), who make everything on the menu from scratch. Their line-up is sensibly short and reasonably priced, although we urge you to order at least two kebabs, served ‘open’ with cutlery. Admire the artful presentation, then get stuck into the likes of pork shawarma with skin crackling and broccoli purée or the equally good BBQ paneer version, its fiery charcoal flavours offset by light touches of beetroot and toum (garlic sauce). Seasonal sides might include purple kohlrabi salad, while specials such as grouse on basmati pilaf allow the kitchen to flex its muscles. The location is cramped, but bright and busy – so bag a counter seat and stay cool with a bottle from the London Beer Factory.
