" We had a team night out in Gilgamesh, but not deliberately: we had booked in Shaka Zulu (their sister restaurant), which was closed for a private function, and unfortunately they had written down the wrong contact number for us.
The restaurant atmosphere was not bad. I think if you were going as a couple and had all evening and a large budget it would be a fun night out. However as a team of nine, midweek, we wanted a reasonably efficient service. This was not to be.
Drinks in the bar were ok, after more than half an hour waiting. Service at the table was inexcusably slow. A long, long wait for someone to take a drinks order, even longer for food.
The food itself was very tasty, but some people had finished before others had started, and we were not asked about drinks again until they were clearing.
The bill was the shocker. We had a couple of tastecards between us, but even so it came to more than £40 per head for just two courses, including very few drinks (after the round in the bar, literally one bottle of wine between us plus a couple of beers). Had the service been better we would have drunk more and had time for dessert.
I sent a message to the restaurant regarding the service and price, but to date I have heard nothing back.
