Does the buyagift 3 course meal voucher experience include service charge? Or does this have to be paid on top of the voucher?

Response from Gurjit K | Reviewed this property |
The restaurant does add a service charge to the receipt, if you buy extra drinks or food which is off the voucher. This is totally optional if you want to pay for the charge or not.

With glowing reviews the cuisine is described as, "Exquisite Pan-Asian food" Time Out, "Incredibly fresh and attractively presented" London Evening Standard and "Very good...Well made, with clear flavours, imaginative combinations and attractive presentation" Sunday Times Style. Gilgamesh also won Most Original Restaurant in the Tatler Restaurant Awards. Floor to ceiling windows and a 40ft retractable roof creates a contemporary and spacious atmosphere in the restaurant. Gilgamesh's Babylon nightclub was opened to offer guests the chance to keep the party going after dinner, with renowned DJ's, dancers and an exclusive VIP section, the club is the place to be in Camden on the weekends. Critically acclaimed Pan-Asian restaurant Gilgamesh, located in the heart of Camden's Stables Market, offers guests a unique dining experience. Executive chef serves up mouth watering dishes such as Chilean Wagyu Sirloin, Duck Spring Rolls, Chilean Seabass, Thai Green Chicken Curry and Beef Bulgogi, alongside a fantastic selection of sushi and sashimi. Gilgamesh's intricate Babylonian decor creates a beautiful backdrop for all occasions and the restaurant offers intimate private dining areas, suitable for private hire, as well as a relaxed bar and lounge area.
