Restaurant Review – Gilgamesh, London
Yesterday was my 46th birthday, and I had such a wonderful day. My beautiful friend Susan Seel arranged a slap up lunch at Pan-Asian restaurant Gilgamesh in Camden. Me and the boys love sushi so it was the perfect choice, especially on a hot day.
The restaurant is in a huge space with ornate carved panelled walls and beautiful wooden throne-like seating. We were seated in one of a few large circular raised banquettes which gave the meal a particularly grand and special feel.
Our waiter was so passionate about the food he served that he got our mouths watering just listening to him describe it.
We ate like kings and feasted on very thinly sliced salmon and tuna in ponzu sauce, crab and avocado futomaki, tiger prawn tempura, crispy squid, and black cod to name a few things, before we got on to the deserts which were stunning. I don’t usually indulge in desert, but these were sensational. Chocolate and lemon grass ice-cream and the exotic fruit plate was divine – and that was all before the cake.
The food was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious.
I have been to this restaurant before but in the evening which is a good and vibey time for it, so I wasn’t sure what it would be like for a lunch gathering with my boys in the day, but it was brilliant and very family friendly.
If you are ever visiting Camden and want some food and a little get away from the crowds, Gilgamesh is the place for you.
