He also mentioned Babi’s Bistro offers customers good quality food at a moderate and reasonable price. The place serves local, Western, Italian, and Mexican food with a special kids menu and cocktail drinks.
Babis started its first acoustic night on Thursday March 21, 2019, and has been holding it for the past four months.

The stage is occasionally graced by Yohanna a young artist known for her sweet voice. Surafel, along with his new band was given the chance perform music they poured their heart into.
