A round of applause, please, for epic Gilgamesh restaurant, the Camden powerhouse. Celebrity chef Ian Pengelley brings his acclaimed pan-Asian cuisine to this big, bold Babylonian-style space in London’s Camden Town Stables Market development. The open kitchen of the main restaurant invites you to gaze at Pengelley in action as he creates his inventive Asian food. Unusually for a London restaurant, Gilgamesh's dining room itself feels endlessly spacious, thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows and a 40ft high ceiling with a retractable roof. A sake sommelier will assist you in exploring the comprehensive menu of more than 30 different sakes and matching them to the dishes you choose. And there’s more. Few London restaurants have bar areas as luxurious and mood-enhancing as the Gilgamesh bar and lounge. You must sample the ornate traditional tea room, which will entice you to stay from noon till late.
