So we decided to go here for my partners birthday. We thought we got lost so I called the restaurant to clarify where they were situated. The girl on the phone was extremely rude with an appalling attitude. There was no customer service there, just sounded like she didn't want to help at all. Anyways, after that we managed to... More

Fantastic experience for my sister's 21st birthday. Huge round table with a great position in the restaurant. Loads of variety on the menu, something for the whole family!

Standard of food is the same which is a big complement having last eaten there about 9 years ago. Starters are better than main courses in my opinion. If you are in the area worth going in.

The interior is amazing, completly decorated with Ancient Sumerian/Babylonian's life scenes, with incredible attention to details, even the bathroom! I've been here for a private event so I cannot say anything about the price paid for what we've got. Surely the price shown were not cheap. The cocktails were mostly ice and the food served were a good Asian even... More

My boyfriend and I drank some cocktails here, mostly because we were attracted by the promise of happy hour: two cocktails for the price of one. The bar sure is fancy with lots of elaborate carvings. Very beautiful. For happy hour we got to choose from a separate menu list. The cocktails were not really memorable, but hey, they were... More

Why the hype? It's just a big dimly lit room with average food and not-so-welcoming staff. The food came quickly as did the waitress to hand us the bill. We were not asked if we wanted to order anything else, more drinks or dessert. Diners get free entry to the club but be prepared for typical radio-chart music. It's not... More

Been here twice. First time was amazing, really enjoyed it. This time we went with a virgin experience voucher and the experience wasn't as good. We felt quite rushed throughout the meal and the bill was being brought to our table before we even asked for it which ruined the experience for us!

Going to Gilgamesh is a special treat. The interior is extraordinary: the decor is Ancient Babylonian or Assyrian, with incredible attention to detail. The food is pan-Asian, with particular emphasis on Thai dishes. The service is good, and I found the staff friendly and helpful. I understand what people are saying about value for money and food quality, when the... More

This place is in a great location and the food is OK. That's as good as it gets. The staff are offensively rude and have zero customer service skills. The 12.5% service charge is a joke as the service simply did not exist! The cocktails were mostly ice and were £11. Totally ridiculous. Won't be going back here!!!!!

There was no customary 'service check' soon after our main courses were served so when we discovered an error with our food, I had to find a member of staff myself which took some time to get rectified. The only time we were asked if everything was ok with our meal was at the end. We had to ask twice... More
