At my previous job, On the Bab was my “treat myself” lunch place but since I changed job last year I couldn’t go back there for lunch. I decided to head there for dinner with a friend after work. They changed the menu slightly but nevertheless, it was still delicious. Unfortunately, my friend didn’t enjoy it as much as I did as everything had chilli mayo which he isn’t too crazy about.
We got there as early as possible to grab a table as the place is small, and will fill up very quickly during peak times. The service is relatively quickly, so we were pretty much done within 1hr 30mins.
On the Bab is a place for a quick meal with a small group of friends, therefore I won’t recommend going there with a large group (4+ people). If you do go then be sure to get there early before the place starts to fill up.
The portions for their main courses are very generously, however the sides are a little disappointing. They are very expensive for the amount that you get. I won’t recommend the sides, and the mains are definitely the dishes you should go to On the Bab for.
