Night in Camden (Gilgamesh)


Saturday 25th August: Think Camden is just about punk rock, Goths and markets?  Think again.  It also plays host to a few fine culinary delights too, including the contemporary Pan-Asian Gilgamesh, it is a great all-rounder for those looking for more than a slice of pizza or noodles in a foil tray (although they are also recommended!).

I have a few tick boxes in mind when assessing a restaurant:

  1. Food (duh)
  2. Service (really does matter)
  3. Decor/ambience
  4. Facilities
  5. Location
  6. Value for money

It’s safe to say Gilgamesh rates quite well on all fronts, the food is a teeny bit over “reasonable pricing” but it is worth it.  I’ve been for a la carte in the main restaurant and had food from the bar menu in the lounge and it was all pretty tasty.  Their cocktails aren’t bad either.

There are plenty of staff to ensure you aren’t left waiting for another drink for long and the ambience is suitable for a gathering of friends or a date.

The decor is quite luxurious and the building itself is quite quirky.  There is nothing standard about this place.

It’s perfect for dinner after a leisurely stroll through all the markets from Camden Town, or canal walk from Little Venice near Warwick Avenue.

It’s easy to miss though if you’re not looking for it, there is a tiny entrance on the corner opposite the food market, where an escalator takes you up to reception.

You’d never go hungry in Camden, what with all the yummy food stalls and small cafes dotted around, but if you’re looking for something a bit more refined, this will be for you.

About Hayles

Living in and loving London, I like to cram in as much as possible. I have a lot of different hobbies which I start on a whim and most of the time abandon for something else! My current interests include film, TV, music, comedy, art, photography, theatre and finding new yummy food establishments. Mostly I just love to experience the many joys and wonders that London offers. I started this blog to help me remember what I've actually done at the end of each year, but now I actually really enjoy writing and sharing what I hope is funny and/or useful information.
