Food was excellent (as usual) even with the reduced menu available fro the voucher deal. However, considering it was early on a Monday (6pm ish) with the restaurant quite empty we had to ask twice for water to be delivered to the table (by that time we had finished our starters) and also for our cocktails. Food service was very... More

Service was good. Cocktails were good. Ambience was also good. But the main courses were a disaster.

We visited Gilgamesh this evening and I must say that the staff are brilliant, very friendly and on hand with helpful advice. My only issue was the food, it felt like they were putting way too many ingredients into everything. For example I had the seafood jungle curry, and the sauce was lovely, as was the rice, but how many... More

Considering the name, and once you are within its walls, the decor... expectations rise but don't be fooled, it ends at the name. Even the decor is just cardboard deep. The food is overpriced, small portions and particularly great. The service is slow although mostly with a smile. if you want to eat nice food go somewhere else

The decor was beautiful. I really liked the bedouin-inspired sort of feel and the almost 'free' layout of the tables. The staff that served us were very courteous, good-humoured and often anticipated our needs. Some of the other meals in our group looked and smelled great but mine was just 'fine' and could have arrived hotter. I must say; the... More

My husband and I enjoyed a 3 course set lunch here with cocktail which was given to us as a gift. The food was lovely, presentation was great and the restaurant decoration itself was incredible. Very easy to find just by Camden Lock/Market. It was quite quiet but the atmosphere is probably really good at night. Staff were friendly. We... More

Restaurant gave away my reservation just 1 minute after the grace period which is only 15 minutes by calling me as i was on their escalator, even after i called to notify them i was running slightly late, absolutely no common decency, and then repeatedly offered a table after 10pm from my original 7.30pm booking, as if this restaurant is...

Established in 2006 Gilgamesh Restaurant, Bar & Lounge opened in June 2006 and quickly made a name for itself amongst locals and tourists alike. With glowing reviews the cuisine is described as, "Exquisite Pan-Asian food" Time Out, "Incredibly fresh and attractively presented" London Evening Standard and "Very good...Well made, with clear flavours, imaginative combinations and attractive presentation" Sunday Times Style. Gilgamesh also won Most Original Restaurant in the Tatler Restaurant Awards. Floor to ceiling windows and a 40ft retractable roof creates a contemporary and spacious atmosphere in the restaurant. Gilgamesh's Babylon nightclub was opened to offer guests the chance to keep the party going after dinner, with renowned DJ's, dancers and an exclusive VIP section, the club is the place to be in Camden on the weekends. Critically acclaimed Pan-Asian restaurant Gilgamesh, located in the heart of Camden's Stables Market, offers guests a unique dining experience. Executive chef serves up mouth watering dishes such as Chilean Wagyu Sirloin, Duck Spring Rolls, Chilean Seabass, Thai Green Chicken Curry and Beef Bulgogi, alongside a fantastic selection of sushi and sashimi. Gilgamesh's intricate Babylonian decor creates a beautiful backdrop for all occasions and the restaurant offers intimate private dining areas, suitable for private hire, as well as a relaxed bar and lounge area. On Friday and Saturday nights guests can head to Gilgamesh's Babylon nightclub or relax in the newly launched Ginger Martini Bar which offers 180 degree views high above Camden.
