Asian
Honest, homely and simple traditional Asian cooking

Located at Notting Hill Gate, ULI offers a fresh, honest approach to Asian cuisine. Natural limed oak, soft tones of blue and contemporary art give the restaurant a clean and informal look, highlighted by a hanging garden of pendant lights. Our menu encompasses carefully selected dishes from Asia, all prepared using traditional Chinese, Thai, Malay and Singaporean disciplines. We believe that Asian food should be clean, fresh and healthy, and that each dish should always be made from scratch.

Originally established on the All Saints Road in 1997, ULI became a firm favourite among locals and critics alike. At its new home ULI serves lunch and dinner all week as well as an extensive range of snacks, cocktails and beverages.

It was our
Last restaurant experience before lockdown and it has been our first at the end of the lockdown. Always a guarantee of good food at good price and with the heat service

We booked Uli because it offered an outdoor space which allowed us to meet as mix households in line with the restrictions. I wouldn’t quite class it as an ‘outdoor’ space, but it was lovely nonetheless - beautifully decorated, covered and heated.
The food was delicious and portions were generous. It also all arrived quickly. My only criticism is that it was all a little on the oily side for my taste. The drinks were strong but very good, especially the Japanese Bellini!
The service was a little slow but servers were friendly and knowledgable about the menu.
I would return and recommend Uli to others.

We are regulars here and it is invariably very good. Even with the current C19 restrictions there is a good vibe and the outdoor terrace allows something other than couples. The food is great and the service attentive. The Manager keeps a sharp eye on everything and jumps in if it isn't to her satisfaction.

Continues to impress me with each dining experience. The food and staff are the best in Notting Hill. I have had the Sesame Prawns, Daiko Cakes, Singapore Fried Rice, Sea Bass, Cod, Pad Thai....The ownership treats you like home! Excellent Wine by the Glass. Highly Recommend!

The food was amazing however the staff let it down a bit, some of the staff do not seem like they knew what they were doing and their knowledge on the food was poor.

Overpriced lacking customer service attention.. dry duck and chicken dish expected more for the price. 4 pounds for prawn crackers (sorry lobster crackers) I get better value and taste from my local takeaway. Nice venue though !

We had a lovely meal but due to the covid measures it did feel somewhat rushed. The food was lovely but it came out so quickly that it cut the experience short somewhat. I felt a bit frustrated to have dropped almost £200 on a meal which was done and dusted in an hour... Restaurant itself was nice... had a neighbourhood feel and staff were friendly and very efficient. Not sure it was worth the money and I think i would go elsewhere next time.

This was my second time visiting, hoping to be pleasently surprised. Unfortunately the food here can be very hit and miss. There's parts that I really enjoyed and other parts not so much. (when given the prices, this shouldn't be the case)
However I do Love the setting of the place.

In terms of Covid parameters - staff are all wearing masks, however not much distancing in terms of seating, which was strange given they weren't that busy.

The duck breast was so dry that it was inedible. The crispy lamb lettuce wraps were also very dry. However, the green curry and spicy scallops were very good. It’s a restaurant where you need to know what to order to have a decent meal.

I treated my daughter to a Sunday lunch here as we are fans of Pan Asian cuisine.

We sat outside which was cozy and bright with attractive decore. We were immediately greeted by smiling and attentive staff.

We had prawn dumplings, duck in pancakes, Thai green curry and egg fried noodles. I have to say all dishes were delicious! I would thoroughly recommend the Thai green curry, it wasn’t too hot but full of those wonderful Thai flavours.

We will definitely be returning soon. An absolute pleasure. And reasonably priced too!

No attention to the Covid crisis. Although restaurant was empty they put all diners in one corner of the restaurant without any attempt to leave space between diners.
Poor hygene standard. Coffee was served without sugar. When we ask for sugar the waiter brought two sugar cubes in his hands. The cubes are not wrapped as on the continent.
No waiter wearing masks.
No attempt at distancing.

Lovely food, a little expensive but enjoyed it. Good service. Atmosphere felt a little flat, despite being relatively full of people. Background music when we went in but was turned off as we were getting into our starters and wasn’t put back on...think that’s what did it.
