Review by Z…
With their delicious menu and their rave reviews online, we thought it was about time we crossed off, the critically acclaimed, Gilgamesh from our list. It was that special something that A and I craved, with just a day to go until Ramadan. Dragging ourselves past the many food stalls of Camden Market, making sure we didn’t spoil our appetites, we finally made it to Gilgamesh. You can appreciate the beautiful interior as soon as you step off of what must be one of the few escalators in a London restaurant. With unique wood carvings and (perhaps a bit too many) plants throughout, sitting below the retractable roof made it seem like we were lunching somewhere exotic, not London!
Crispy Chicken Wings x6 (£8.50)
Tiger Prawn Tempura x5 (£15.00)
￼Gilgamesh didn’t serve their’s with soy sauce because it’s a combination that didn’t go well together at all.
Duck and Watermelon Salad (£14.50)
Beef Bulgogi (£25.00)
The final bill would’ve amounted to over £30pp, but with a Tastecard, it was just over £20pp. This is closer to the standard price for restaurants in London, but, considering the reputation Gilgamesh has built up, we left extremely disappointed with what they had to offer.
Giglamesh do have an extensive menu, so if you do choose to go, I would only recommend the chicken wings, from the above. If you’ve already been though, how did you find it? Did we order the wrong things?? They must be doing something right to have become so popular! Let us know in the comments below!
