Warning - Octopus is off the menu until christmas. My mate wasn’t happy but the surf and turf shut him up. Glad it did otherwise I wouldn’t have heard the end of it.
Food was ready quickly, service was faultless. I clocked all the sauces after I demolished the kebab. Gutted.
Greek fries - do I, don’t I? DO! Serious. You have to have these in your life.
I’m not one to moan but... there is a draft in there. Easily solved, next time I’ll wear a sweater or ask if I can close the door.
These truly are kebabs worth sitting down for. I’ll be back.
Absolutely to die for food!! The king prawns on sourdough are absolutely delicious and the Greek fries are amazing would highly recommend!
Second time here and food just as excellent as the first time. Brilliant service. Can’t wait to come back.
Absolutely amazing food and great value as well. Will happily be coming back
Great food and service. Would certainly recommend
The first time I ate at BAB the food was spot on, chicken kebab with red cabbage slaw and salad, just the right amount of sauce drizzled over, so fresh and vibrant. I ordered the same dish this time and it was all meat and sauce with a lonely jalapeño parked on top, tasty but all the freshness and vibrancy were missing!! When I asked the waitress why they had changed the dish it was apparently because someone has complained they had too many vegetables on their plate! I can’t think a chef would change the recipe unless they had many complaints and it was so gorgeous I can’t believe that they would have, such a shame! Ignore those idiots BAB and go back to what you were doing.
Food was great, although i preferred the mushroom bab from the previous menu but a personal preference. First time having mezze or sides and they were beautiful, had two bottles of wine both nice. Our waitress was really accommodating and friendly.
Staff were wonderful and really approachable and friendly despite how busy it was. The food was gorgeous, everything that we ordered could not find fault. Will definitely be going again soon!!
First time back at Bab after lockdown and it didn’t disappoint. The staff there are always so lovely and was incredible too; we had the flat iron steak Bab and surf and turf, can’t wait to go back.
Great service and attention given to catering for those with allergies, aswell as offering a selection of vegan options. The food was great. Highly recommended!
Great food, good atmosphere, small ordering hick-ups, but all in all a very enjoyable evening!
The food was amazing and the atmosphere was great, they also had a banging playlist to create a good vibe. Can't wait to go back
Just took a chance on this place when looking on internet for great places to eat in Manchester. Food, service, everything was excellent. Will be back!
Great food but social distancing measures not really in place. There was about 1 foot between me and the person sat behind me, and wait staff would pass through it and close to the other sides of our table to get around the restaurant. Wait staff were lovely but stood too close and leaning in to hear us (probably necessary, it was pretty loud). Will definitely go back when social distancing measures aren't required any more but will avoid the restaurant until then.
It ws our first time at BAB and it was such a nice experience. The food was tasty with a good selection and the atmosphere was just right, plenty of people but not too noisy.
The staff were all really friendly and made sure we were happy throughout.
Will definitely be going back, its our new favourite place in town.
Love coming here, food is excellent and the staff are always friendly.
Food was absolutely amazing, however the service was really disappointing unfortunately even though the restaurant was quiet
Lovely food, the Greek chips was amazing.
The service is great, however paying £13 or more of a kebab is a bit annoying. I think the max should be £10
My favourite restaurant in Manchester!! They have put so much thought into the flavours of each dish and keep it fresh by changing the menu regularly!
Great food! Nice decor, not seated too close together.
absolutely amazing BAB never lets us down, it's one of my favourites in the NQ
Food was absolutely delicious, so many nice flavours. Service was great too. Will definitely be back!
Beautiful food, great but small cocktail menu would 100% go back for another chicken bab. Starters a little bit pricey but over-all really tasty food.
This is my favourite places to eat in the city centre. It always delivers a wonderfully taste sensation and amazing portion sizes to fill you right up. We never have a side each we gave to share as the Greek fries are to due for but way too much for one person. The lamb is DEVINE and I tried the crispy mushrooms this last visit and loved them. 2 for 1 cocktails is fabulous too. All in all still my number 1 place to go.
Great restaurant food was amazing especially the Greek chips lovely little place we will definitely be coming back
Insane food, lovely staff and an absolute all over amazing Experiance. Would highly recommend and will be coming back very soon!
Food is absolutely amazing and plenty of it. Can't wait to go back and try another dish.
No exaggeration, my new favourite food place- just bloody delicious, every single mouthful. Lovely staff, all round gorgeous experience x
The food was absolutely amazing. The only negative was that the restaurant was a little cold.
Great friendly service......the food was amaaaaaaaazing!
Will definitely be returning soon!
Visit was amazing, food was delicious and service very attentive. Will be returning.
The food was okay, I went there to try the Octopus Kebab before they'd take it off the menu. Very bland taste, same for the chicken kebab. I almost loved the roasted tiger prawns, but the 'nduja was giving me the feel I am eating salt, this salty it was. I would have given 3 stars but, although the staff was nice, they didn't have a mask on 😱 which was shocking for me because I am really careful with this pandemic. Moreover, every interaction I've had with them they had to be like really close to me while I was squeezing myself by the wall. Not disappointed, but unimpressed.
Excellent food , very tasty , perfectly cooked , great service , good value
Food was amazing and great value. Service was friendly but a little slow, understandable at the moment.
Really good overall.
Great portion, delicious, not stingy with the sauces
Loved it, can’t wait to go back!
The staff were really friendly and we felt safe under the current circumstances. Food was really tasty and it’s dog friendly! What’s not to like.
Surf and turf with a side of Greek fries was amazing! And all for a tenner on the eat out to help out offer. Sublime.
The best kebab I’ve ever eaten - get the Greek fries too
Surf and turf was fantastic - excellent value for the price and superb quality steak. I've tried their kebabs on other occasions too and can't recommend it enough, hits the spot every time!
Food was great, staff were friendly. Unfortunately, I felt like they'd taken minimal COVID-19 precautions. Sure, there were hand sanitisers at the entrance, and we had to pre-book, but none of the staff were wearing masks or face shields, and they were pretty chill about leaning over/standing close to our table to take our order.
I think the tables were a bit more spaced out than usual but I'm not sure. Whilst it was a nice night out with food I love and have missed, I felt like I was out pre-pandemic and that makes me a bit uncomfortable, so I'll probably not be back for eating in for a while.
