Located on the rooftop of Westfield Sydney is a new dining precinct, consisting of two fantastic restaurants. There’s Babylon — a Middle Eastern restaurant with plenty of nods to the ancient hanging gardens of Babylon, with greenery everywhere, and a stylish fit-out that recreates elements of the mystical Middle East. Here, Executive chef Dennis has created a menu that includes Lebanese, Syrian, and even Iranian food.
Chefs aside, the star of this kitchen is the wood-fired, charcoal, custom-built three metre-long Mangal (Turkish grill) and two rotisseries. Most of the dishes are cooked over the grill, including the Ali nazik, lamb & pistachio kebab, with smoked eggplant, yoghurt, and sumac onions, and the incredible Wood fired cabbage kebab, with coriander, lime, aleppo, chilli, harissa, and labna. As is custom in most Middle Eastern countries and households, there’s an endless supply of fresh, house-made bread so you’ll always leave a meal, at Babylon, with a very satisfied stomach!
Just across the rooftop, from Babylon, is Duck and Rice. A Cantonese style restaurant, with a décor inspired by the glamourous city of Shanghai, Duck and Rice is a fantastic restaurant for intimate or group dining. They marinate their ducks in-house and make fresh, tasty dumplings daily. As well as the dumplings and the Peking Duck pancakes, other delicious offerings include the Mapo Crispy Silkin Tofu, the Cubed Beef with Kampot pepper sauce and no Cantonese feast would be complete without the Yangzhou Fried Rice!
Whether you opt for a Middle Eastern, or a Cantonese feast, the Westfield Sydney rooftop offers you plenty of options and spaces, to enjoy a wonderful meal with partners, family or friends.
