“Tasty kebabs and sides” that “offer a modern twist on traditional Middle Eastern cuisine” make this “brilliant” Carnaby Street outfit “a must-visit”, “in the lovely setting of Kingly Court”. The Battersea branch is “an absolute gem”, and there are now half a dozen outlets around town, including at the Market Halls in Oxford Street and Canary Wharf. See also Kebab Queen.

“Intriguing twists on the kebab theme” (plus “good beer brewed on site” at the Kraft Dalston branch) continue to win consistently good ratings for this expanding chain, which in September 2022 adds a 20-seater in Brixton to its roster of locations. See also Kebab Queen.

“Wow!! Tasty or what?” This upscale kebab group has expanded from its well-known Kingly Court base, and been busy during the pandemic with a couple of new openings. In May 2021 they opened both a new café in a funky Dalston coworking space (part of a new aparthotel from Locke) and a retro, old-school kebab shop in the heart of Old Street, open till the wee hours. “You can’t really fault the food and it’s at a very good price. It’s a nice place too, relaxed but well managed”. See also Kebab Queen.

"Le Bab in Battersea is an absolute gem of a restaurant that offers a modern twist on traditional Middle Eastern cuisine. From the moment you walk in, you'll be struck by the stylish decor and the warm, welcoming atmosphere. The menu is concise but well-curated, featuring a variety of dishes that showcase the best of Middle Eastern flavors. The standout dish for me was the lamb kebab, which was perfectly seasoned and cooked to perfection. The accompanying sides of hummus, pickles, and freshly baked bread only added to the experience. The cocktails at Le Bab are also noteworthy. The bartenders have clearly put a lot of thought and care into their creations, and the results are delicious and unique. I particularly enjoyed the pomegranate margarita, which perfectly complemented the bold flavors of the food. Service at Le Bab is top-notch, with friendly and attentive staff who are happy to make recommendations and ensure that you have a fantastic dining experience. All in all, I highly recommend Le Bab to anyone who loves Middle Eastern food or is looking for a new and exciting dining experience."
