Amazing food and staff. Would really recommend the Greek chips!! 🙌🏻 Been a few times and always a nice welcome and great music!
Fantastic as always. Super tasty food and great atmosphere. COVID-19 measures in place very good felt very safe. Well done BAB my favourite place to eat in Manchester
Amazing food and great service
Service was great, the food was lovely. Great for the mezze too.
You can also take your doggies which was fab
The roasted king prawns and nduja sausage on sour dough with aioli was amaaazing - so salty and delicious. The octopus was cooked to perfection too. Found the restaurant extremely reasonably priced for the taste sensation you get!
Our experience at BAB was amazing as usual, we rang up to alter our booking from 3 to 2 people and there was no problem and the staff were very accommodating. Seated promptly, and the ordering system was explained well. Helpful with telling us which gins were available, the food was absolutely amazing and we were provided boxes to take home, as we were very full but we couldn’t leave it! Overall great experience will be going back, hopefully soon!
The food was amazing, the staff were attentive and brilliant even though they were rushed off their feet.
Always enjoyed going to bab so I’m glad it’s survived the pandemic craziness.
That Vimto chutney 😍
Love the food but there is practically zero social distancing. Two meters between tables is non existent. I love BAB but they need to sort this out.
Chilled venue, super friendly staff and delicious food.
The staff were very friendly, and the food was great!
Food was amazing service very good would definitely return
The food was excellent and the service was good. However, I was shocked that none of the waiting staff were wearing masks or gloves and there were people milling around everywhere. Also, the music was really loud and I had to ask them to turn it down. My understanding is that government advice is that music should be kept to a low level so that people aren't having to bellow at each other (thus increasing the risk of spreading the virus).
It's a shame because prior to the pandemic this was one of my favourite restaurants. It used to feel really 'chilled' but not so now!
Favourite little spot in Manchester for great food
Amazing food, highly recommended. I had the chicken and my friend had the octopus, it shouldn't work but it absolutely does!
We were sat at a table right under the air conditioning so our food got cold quite quick. But what we were most unsatisfied with was with the service. We had a male blond waiter who stacked the plates on the table right in front of our faces, touching the food with his hands, not wearing any sort of protection (neither masks nor gloves), eavesdropping into our conversation making it quite uncomfortable and easy to loose focus on what we were talking about, needed the table surface to write our order...
The food was good, although they had ran out of many things in the kitchen, which was told to us after we had already made our minds up and placed our order.
In all, we would like to give it another chance, but hopefully experience better service the next time, and actually be able to eat what we choose.
Great food with amazing customer service. The music was also on point!
Fantastic food, and friendly, efficient service at a great price!
Great food, great beers and service with a smile :-)
I have been going to Bab for a while and it never disappoints. Nice varied menu, very very nice and fully flavoured food, and friendly service. Also good value for money. We spent £48 on 3 Alcoholic drinks and 5 Meze plates
Waitress was lovely & chatty and the food was amazing!
The staff were super friendly and welcoming to us and our dog. Food was incredible and the restaurant was safe and sanitised can’t wait to go back!
Quieter than usual due to worldwide current events but the food and customer service continues to be out of this world. Looking forward to returning and working my way through the rest of the menu. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Amazing food at a great price and really friendly and attentive servers, will be visiting again! Everyone was respectful of social distance and the restaurant was incredibly clean. It got a little bit noisy toward the end of our meal as the restaurant did seem to be full and it was a little bit difficult to have a conversation.
First time back since lockdown and if it was even possible the food was even better! Great service and atmosphere too. 10/10
So pleased this is back up and running after the pandemic. Only had meze and drinks. However, roast prawns and nduja was delicious!
For my first restaurant trip BAB couldn’t have been more accommodating and more comfortable. Both food and service was amazing.
Fab food and service 👍 has the chicken and lamb Babs. Homemade sauces wer also delicious. Can't wait to return
Fantastic. I want to bathe in the hummus and to be a human platter for lamb Adana.
Amazing food and cocktails, quick service and friendly staff
Really difficult to find fault, as always the staff were outstanding
Amazing food. You MUST try this place and you’ll enjoy every bite. So so happy this place has reopened!!!
Had a brilliant time, food was amazing and waiters were so lovely and attentive!
Love this place Amazing service even with masks!
Food was really excellent, every dish was absolutely spot on which isn’t that common. Great ambience too.
Staff amazing, food was gorgeous! Quick and easy, relaxed environment! Now one of my favourite spots in northern quarter! Thank you!
First time and wasn’t disappointed, Lovely food, staff very friendly and on the ball. Will def return.
Food fantastic again As always a great little restaurant which does not seem to have been adversely effected by covid 19. Make use of the August eat out to help out and get as many babs as you can! Also the Greek fries are unreal!
Amazing place!! would highly recommend, couldn't fault anything! staff were so friendly and bubbly, helped in anyway they could. Food was stunning, perfect size portions and amazing flavours! would definitely recommend to anyone and will be returning soon!
Lovely food and drinks here on sat. Great service from friendly staff. Highly recommend
