We made our first trip here before a performance of Riverdance at nearby Eastern Kentucky University. The food is fresh, delicious, and reasonably priced. We ordered the sampler platter for two and the servings were so generous we had enough left over for lunch the next day. Definitely a casual, friendly atmosphere.

I've been coming here for a couple of years. The service is always amazing, and the food consistent. The gyros are worth driving for, and the pita is the best I've had. Easily the best food/ value in Richmond. Definitely try a lunch special!

I had the Humus, Gyro and Baklava which were all excellent. The service was friendly and the price was very reasonable.

Needed a short lunch break on a long trip. We had gyros & salad both of which were delicious. It is worth coming here just for the smell! Very simple interior but the food is great!

Debut visit to Babylon today with a friend. Had been curious about this downtown eatery and we thought it would be good to give them a try together. Though the decor inside is not fancy, the flavor of the product was fantastic!!!! I chose the Babylon Chicken Delight, friend chose the Babylon Gyro Combo (lamb) and neither disappointed. Very generous... More

Wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised by the Gyro I ate here. Best tasting Gyro in Richmond (and the only one)

Local Favorite... Great lunch spot! We even hired them to cater our rehearsal dinner... that's how much we love this food. Great gyros, great salad, great price! Friendly staff and owner! Don't forget the yogurt sauce!

Thank Sparklepooh
