About us

Le Bab

Le Bab is a kebab renaissance project. We’re reinvigorating kebabs with provenance, seasonality and technique honed in Michelin starred kitchens. Our kitchen team have come together to explore new approaches to this ancient dish. The kebabs combine brilliant seasonal ingredients and the wood-fired flavours of the Middle East, near East and South Asia. We cook on a wood and charcoal-fired robata.
The Founders

Stephen and Ed founded Le Bab as a street food operation in 2014. They’d found a mutual fascination with the ancient gastronomy of kebabs at university, and left determined to set up a restaurant together. Stephen laid the foundations for Le Bab’s menu by experimenting with British produce and Middle Eastern flavours. Ed spent a year in stages at several Michelin-starred restaurants, before joining Le Gavroche, where he gained the key skills of classical French training.
Manu Canales, Head Chef

As a biology graduate, Manu utilises scientific knowledge in his highly technical approach to cookery. He is inspired by nature and the intensely seasonal, ingredient-driven cookery of his childhood home in Aragon, Spain. Manu rose from first commis chef to sous chef at Le Gavroche, after a short spell in Ireland, before joining Ed, Stephen & Angus at Le Bab as head chef.

We hold half of our restaurant for walk-ins, but we also take reservations through our website & ResDiary. If you have any questions, please do get in touch by email or phone, and we'll endeavour to get back to you:

Please note that in order to be able to provide waiting guests with an idea of when the next table will be available, we allocate 1.5 hours for parties of up to 6 guests, and 2 hours for parties of 6 and above. This should be ample time for you to enjoy a full and hearty meal (and a few tipples after!) but should you wish to extend your allocated time, try to let us know as soon as possible and we'll do our best to accommodate you. Unfortunately we cannot hold booked tables beyond a grace period of 15 minutes.
