This restaurant is a good oasis from the business of NN. The help is great and the food good. Kevin and his wife, do a wonderful job. I am happy to recommend them. Kevin, the manager has a great amount of experience behind him. I would go here for Mexican food, pizza, steak, and deserts. If you like drinks they... More

Food is quite nice. We tried nachos, duck breast, salad. Music and decoration are also good. Over all is above average in NN (as there are not many good ones here.. lol) Customers are mostly local ppl. (So don't expect a quiet dining atmosphere)

I live in Guilin and visit Nanning every 4 months or so and have been doing so for about 8 years. Babel is my first port of call from the railway station. The food is always good although i think the portions are getting smaller, maybe its my eyes or the plates are bigger. The atmosphere is always relaxed here... More

Babel has just re-opened and it's better than ever. They have a wide variety of Western food, excelled drinks and possibly the nicest atmosphere of any restaurant in Nanning. The place has been around for years and it is still probably the best place to get quality Western food in Nanning. It's downtown location makes it a convenient stop for... More

It's a little hard to find as they don't have the English name outside (at least that I saw). It's at the corner of the building inside the glass greenhouse looking corner/ceilings. They have the name on the wall inside by the bar. Ambience is western and comfortable. It was about 90F outside and it was warm inside, but with... More
