We had a function to attend at KOKO in camden so we though we would visit a place we had dined at 8 years ago. The bar is still fabulous. The restaurant was busy and bustling. Food was generally quite average. Nothing i would rave about and not somewhere id be in a hurry to return to. Average dinner, expensive... More

I have been to Gilgamesh before and it was a pleasant experience, the venue is beautiful. I had therefore decided to make a reservation through OpenTable for my partners birthday. To confirm the reservation I called them, after being on hold for 5 minutes, the call was answered by a very rude lady, when asked the date i accidentally gave... More

Our visit was disappointing, we had a birthday meal here which started and finished on a bad note. We had a table of 16 which cost roughly around £70 per head. We was on the offer where we would receive a cocktail, this was missed furthermore the staff did not know the difference between veg and non veg dishes. Food... More

As soon as we walked into the restaurant we were greeted in the coldest and most unwelcoming manner. They refused to cooperate to find us a table. The staff spoke down to us. Refused to call us in case of availability. We waited at the bar for 20 minutes before being served, even though we were the only ones there.... More

I booked Gilgamesh for my wife's birthday with 24 of our friends and family. The restaurant is a loud and busy place. Our tables were on the stage area slightly above the rest of the floor. This is definitely not a quiet place for couples - so it was perfect. The music was great, but conversations were absolutely fine. We... More

We visited the Lounge Bar as we came only for drinks.The friend who brought us here said they had fantastic food which they serve only in the restaurant.The staff is very nice and even though it is a bar the children are allowed.

The food is terrible - 'all you can eat buffet' terrible and expensive. Pad Thai (£22!!) was a soggy mess of noodles - what! A party of 3: small glass of wine, 2 beers, spring roll, squid, 3 pad thai and one veg £132. The open plan kitchen looked impressive but there seemed to be little cooking going on in... More

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.
