My fiancé and I ate out here as we heard it offered the best lamb chops, and we certainly weren't disappointed. The food was great and plentiful, and staff friendly. Not cheap, but it comes with the territory in this location. A++

My husband and I visited Babylon after walking past it numerous times while in South Beach.

We love Greek/Mediterranean food so we figured we would like this place as well.

We came here for dinner and sat in the outside garden. It was a beautiful atmosphere as there were vibrant colors from flowers as well as lights stringed above the tables.

Our server was Illkir S. (I hope I have spelled that correctly!) who was super friendly and personable. He recommended some great dishes to us as we sipped our glasses of wine and Prosecco.

For our appetizer we ordered the LAHANA DOLMA which was stuffed cabbage with rice, meat, pepper, onion and herbs.

For our entree we ordered the BEYTI which is a ground lamb skewer wrapped in a lavash bread, served with special sauce.

Everything was so delicious and cooked to perfection. The portion of the entrée was big so we had some to bring home with us.

We definitely look forward to our next visit!

This restaurant is in the same space as Sports Cafe and Baires when I lived in South Beach. It's now a stark white space (most likely from another incarnation) with a lovely patio area. The patio is the only thing I liked about the restaurant. Food and service were three star average, but the very load music played for the belly dancer ruined the meal. You could only talk during the meal in between sets. Even code compliance paid them a visit. Horrible.

Too pricey for the food they serve (but you're paying for the location, you know). Also, they don't always have everything on the menu, which made me upset a couple of times!

Great Turkish food is not so easy to find, especially on South Beach. But Babylon hits the spot with a lovely outdoor garden and plenty of room inside for traditional Turkish food. We had the Saturday lunch special for $15 which included lentil soup and a choice of chicken shush kabob or flat meatballs on rice. For appetizers we tried the sundries eggplant stuffed with lamb and a salad. Everything was delicious! Prices are reasonable and they advertise a Sunday brunch that looked good too! We recommend Babylon!
