Could it be that Gilgamesh, the gussied-up gargantuan that attempts to replicate the kingdom of Babylon, is falling off its throne? It has certainly received mixed reviews of late. Opinion is split 50/50 on the bronze frieze & marble-pillared interior, some describing it as ‘awe-inspiring’, others put off by its ‘gaudiness’. But it’s the food that has attracted real scrutiny, & we’re inclined to agree with the critics. The pan-Asian menu has great promise, tempting with the likes of scallop shu mai dumplings, seared tuna in miso dressing, Thai beef salads & large plates of green chicken curry. Sadly ‘it doesn’t live up to the expectations’, with dishes sometimes arriving fridge-cold, & sauces & seasonings not quite as they should be. Factor in lofty bills & small portions, & many feel Gilgamesh is ‘grossly over-priced’. Service can also be slow & apathetic.
