Gilgamesh Restaurant, Bar and Babylon Lounge is set in the heart of Stables Market in Camden. Critically acclaimed Head Chef, Ian Pengelley serves his leading contemporary style of Pan-Asian cuisine, developed from years of living in Asia and brought to the UK to much acclaim via E&O, The Hempel and the eponymous Pengelley's of Sloane Street.
Stepping in from the hubbub of Camden's riotous markets, guests are immediately drawn in by the sheer magnitude and vision of Gilgamesh. Diners ascend the escalator or, if preferred, take the dramatic stairwell, passing the intricate hand-carved 'Tree of Life', inspired by friezes held at The British Museum.
If there is a thirst to quench or hunger to sate, Gilgamesh will satisfy every need with an eclectic, mouth-watering array of dishes that includes starters such as Gao Choy Dumplings with Shitake Mushrooms, Alaskan King Crab Hand Rolls and Pomegranate Banh Trang Roll.
Main courses such as Plum Miso Chilean Sea Bass in Hoba Leaf, Singapore Noodles and Duck and Watermelon Salad with Cashew Nuts and Sweet Fish Sauce should intrigue even the most gastronomically sophisticated palate.
Those with a sweet tooth can indulge in sumptuous desserts such as Green Tea Crème Brulee with Jasmine Tea Sorbet, Banana Cake with Coconut Ice Cream and Caramel and Warm Chocolate Fondant with Praline with Fresh Vanilla Ice.
All of this delivered from an open stone-carved kitchen where diners can watch the Chef and his team work their magic.
Every chair, every table has been hand-carved to precision to tell the story of Gilgamesh. The marble pillars are inlaid with Lapis and Mother of Pearl. Look up, and you could easily get lost in gazing at the intricate ceiling panels. With a 15,000 sq ft space, Gilgamesh not only offers the finest food, wine, sake and Asian teas but also provides areas to unwind and relax, hold meetings, indulge in a private dining event or party with abandon - all under the watchful gaze of two magnificent Gilgamesh statues, weighing 3 tons each.
Gilgamesh's drama, opulence, tradition, history and aesthetic beauty will infuse London with an exciting taste of the East.
We hope that you enjoy the wonder that is Gilgamesh!
