About: 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.

Now Gilgamesh has launched a new dining experience for Friday and Saturday nights. Guests booking a table in the Babylon Lounge can now enjoy a table to table Peking Duck trolley, a luxury seafood bar for guests to choose from and private booths dressed with red drapes!

Gilgamesh features in these AIL lists...

Restaurants where you're likely to spot celebrities
Mega-opulent Gilgamesh is popular with wags and starlets - youíre also likely to spot members of pop groups like Girls Aloud and JLS, Lisa Snowdon, Emma Bunton and other stars of that ilk. On one occasion TV chef Gino DíAcampo threw a wobbly when he wasnít allowed to sit in a closed-off section of the restaurant. Theyíre a highly strung bunch, those Z-list celebs.

Our favourite venues for dinner and a dance
Gilgamesh could well be the most epic restaurant in London. The food, courtesy of Ian Pengelley, is Pan-Asian and remarkably good for such look-at-me surroundings. There is a suitably showy dancefloor upstairs to carry on partying till late into the night.

Great Restaurants for Stag and Hen parties
This lavish restaurant is a hit with hen and stag parties, as after dinner guests can head to the bar or to the dancefloor for a boogie. The Pan-Asian menu is very good, and the exotic surroundings are not easily forgotten.

Our pick of restaurants to go to if you're single
This incredibly over the top Pan-Asian restaurant has hand-carved reliefs, gilded furniture and a 40 foot high ceiling. Itís also popular with girls and gals dressed up to the nines who arrive for dinner and drinks before having a boogie on the dancefloor.

London's most expensive restaurants
Camdenís original excursion into exhibitionistic flamboyance is this restaurant and nightclub plonked amid the Asian food stalls of the Stables Market. It cost £16 squillion to build this giant venue which attempts to replicate a Babylonian palace via a Hollywood studio circa 1935. With myriad carvings, statues, and a bar made from lapis stone that required the work of ten thousand men (yes really) itís as fascinating for its design as for the slebs who patronise it. The food, courtesy of Ian Pengelley, is a cut above the usual Pan-Asian fare.

The lunchtime dim menu is great value, it's only £12 for 3 dishes and it's surprisingly filling. The chive and mushroom dim sum and prawn dumplings are particularly good. I also recommend the fat crispy chips.

The decor was very interesting, the escalator entrance and view of the Camden lock market very unique, however the crown a bit pretentious to our liking and the food not special but priced way too high!
All 4 of our table agreed we will never return there- ever! The service was appalling: the staff were really rude and un-attentive, when they made a mistake argued and made us feel uncomfortable for pointing it out.
Service could be much better and prices lower or food better...to summarize a lot to do about nothing, and donít judge a cover by its look!
