Gilgamesh Restaurant Lounge

The Stables Market, Chalk Farm Road, LONDON, NW1 8AH

1 rosettes

The exotic maelstrom that is Camden's Stables Market is good preparation for a meal here, for Gilgamesh is no ordinary venue. Be prepared for interiors inspired by the excesses of Babylon (the ancient Mesopotamian city, not a nightclub in Ilford). This amounts to hand-carved wooden furniture, extravagant fabrics, a lapis lazuli inlaid 50-metre bar, ornate walls of beaten bronze panels, marble pillars, palm trees, vast windows and nightclub-esque psychedelic lighting. The menu takes its inspiration from the East, serving up a Pan-Asian panoply of ideas: dim sum, sushi, Malaysian curries and more. Start with crispy squid with garlic chips and a sweet-and-sour dipping sauce, or salmon cÚviche, and move onto rack of organic lamb breaded with oriental herbs and served with an Asian dressing, or beef Penang. Desserts can be as Asian-inspired as an exotic tropical fruit bowl, or as indulgently European as milk chocolate fondant with praline and vanilla ice cream.
