Le Bab

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.

We hold half of our restaurant for walk-ins, but we are also taking reservations through Opentable. We're very sorry that, due to the very high level of interest we have received, we were unable to respond to all email reservation requests prior to implementing Opentable. 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.
