My other half booked us a table for two to celebrate my birthday and we were both looking forward to the evening as we'd heard good things about Gilgamesh. Maybe we missed the special offer that entitled us to be treated with good manners and a friendly smile! On arrival my partner was stopped at the door by the most... More

Very disappointed with the place. We were told the place has a nice dancefloor where you can have a great night out with your friends. Instead, we found a crowded place with NO dancefloor where you you could actually dance. We spent there 10 min and asked the receptionist for a refund (£15). She was very rude to all of... More

We're from London, so we are used to overpriced restaurants supplying average food, but this was honestly sub-standard quality. Speaking from a normal couple that eat out every week in a range of places. We actually had a voucher for the visit, and we still left feeling ripped-off. They took our whole order (starter, main and dessert) within 2 minutes... More

Excellent situation near the market in Camden . Up the escalator to the restaurant which is like the British museum with all the Sumerian carvings. Staff were most attentive and efficient and food good even if not a huge choice of non sushi food. Quite pricey but so tasty. You must go at least once if you visit London

Went on Thursday for dinner with my friends from work. Great experience and fantastic food! Our waiter (medium height and dark hair) gave us a very good customer service.

Wonderful birthday celebrations with excellent cocktails, incredible food (Green chicken curry by far the best).. Stefan and Sotir ensured the most attentive, professional and friendly service. The only issue.. It seems I share my birthday with others (shocker!) . Felt like all the other tables were celebrating too.. So we joined in! Great dinner!

I arranged a guest list for my birthday for 20 guests. The venue is beautiful and bar staff are great. Unfortunately the security are too aggressive. We had left the premises and myself, partner and sister was by the side of the road waiting for our cab. The security was aggressively pushing us in the road. I told them we... More

Very good restaurant with fancy menu. The food is well prepared, nice and helpful staff and good cocktails. However the restaurant is positioned near the train station so it gets a bit noisy.

This is a gorgeous, lively venue and the food is divine. Highly recommend the Tiger Prawn Pad Thai which is served in a HUGE portion and is absolutely delicious! They also do an amazing Pornstar Martini which other restaurants struggle to do well. It's always busy, bustling and with a great ambience, and the venue is lovely. Great for a... More
