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.
Very nice selection of food on the menu. we ate outside on the terrace in March, which was nice and warm, with the side heaters. Bit bright inside the restaurant - terrace a lot nicer.
Great neighborhood Chinese/Asian place. Been quite a few times, good prices, tasty food and nice atmosphere.
We had booked but were sitting by the door and
there were deliveroo pick ups on average every 2 minutes
Excellent as always
A great local restaurant in Notting Hill
Over priced average food. Ambience excellent. Service good.
Very good food and brilliant service from the staff.
Service is good enough but every dish is so salty.
Fantastic food, lovely atmosphere & a warm welcome from the manager. Thank you for another lovely evening at Uli.
Made a post theatre booking for 2245. After having it confirmed, the restaurant rang at 2145 in the day of the booking to say the kitchen was closing at 2230 and we needed to arrive and order by then if we wanted the booking. We didn’t get the message as were in the theatre by the time they called so arrived at the restaurant just past 2230, where we were refused service and told to go home. Don’t understand why the restaurant and opentable are making and confirming bookings they have no intention of honouring. It spoiled what had been a lovely evening up until then.
Pretty, if noisy and narrow (I stopped counting how many times the waiters bumped into my chair) room, with a terrace upfront. Decent menu on paper but execution and prices reek of Notting Hill tourist trap. We should have left the restaurant immediately when I realised that the prices in the restaurant are up to 50% higher than what is shown on Opentable and that they call their prawn crackers, lobster crackers. Seeing a Nonya (ie Peranakan) dish on the menu we decided to stay. This turned out a simple chilli sauce and when I questioned it, I got the answer that this is the Thai version. Brilliant! The Thai version of an indigenous Malay dish. I am looking forward to the British version using Bisto or Marmite next time. Credit to the waiter who took it back and brought fresh [warm] rice when the alternative order arrived. Several of our dishes were rather sweet. I am happy to pay for location, as long as the food is up to it. This isn’t.
been twice now, delicious food and great service both times. its been busy with a nice vibe both times. good wine and cocktail options.
Fantastic service and food recommendations, lovely ambience in their heated outdoor section. Highly recommended.
I had a very good value set lunch menu for £9.95. It was tasty and satisfying. The beer is good too, but rather pricey.
Love this place! Great food, quality, but not pretentious
Great food and service. This was our last night in London and I wanted to have some great Chinese before going back to San Francisco (Chinese is a bit different here). The food I picked are items you don’t typically get out in the US and these were better than my memory of them from last year’s trip! I’m keeping this restaurant on my must come back to list for my next trip!
Crispy duck is amazing, look forward to coming here every time I'm in London.
Christmas Day. Very cool vibe, very nice decor. Good was delicious. We made the reservation in open table but were unaware it was a Christmas Day price fix menu. We liked everything though and we would recommend coming here
Overpriced Christmas dinner! And no warning of the prices at the time of booking on Opentable, unlike what other restaurants had done! Felt cheated!
We had a very enjoyable Christmas dinner at ULI. Service was friendly if a tiny bit inattentive. Lots of tasty cocktails! Food was fine but maybe not exceptional. Would eat there again.
Too expensive for the service received...
Good cosy find. Simple food done well
Obviously busy on a Friday night even at 7.30 but seated right next to the bar I had waiters constantly invading my space collecting drinks and what looked like takeaways. My crispy shredded chilli beef whilst tasty was on balance batter 75% beef 25%. Dissapointed and so would not return.
Food and ambiance was lovely but was a little over priced
It was a very beautiful and festive setting! Ask for a table in the outside bit (it's covered and has heaters). The manager was great. Waiters were overall excellent, however, part of our order was incorrect. They were quick to fix it but it meant half our meal was cold by the time we had everything. Food was super tasty and drinks were great. Staff were attentive too'
Food was not as good as usual. It was cold and the crispy beef was not fresh and crunchy but tasted pre made and soggy. Disappointing as it’s usually amazing
Uli is one of only a few Asian/Thai restaurants in the Notting Hill area. The food we chose for both the starters and main course was very good. I particularly enjoyed the hot and sour soup starter I selected. Both courses arrived fairly quickly. The young members of staff were very polite and helpful. The only negative point was the noise level which was generally quite loud and therefore not the best place in the area to take someone for a date. Overall a very pleasant experience and will go back again.
We loved this new found place of deliciousness and we will be back. Crispy calamari- superb! Summer rolls were the best ones I have tried and my pad thai with succulent prawns - delicious!
Wonderful food and service. Convenient location. The Hot and Sour Soup is the best I've had!
We don't like a food.
Extremely average food. Not worth the price at all. Great decor and atmosphere, though.
Perfect for a light meal if you’re a fan of Asian food. I loved the atmosphere and decor but the service was a little slow - but I’ll be back, it’s a hreat place for a girls lunch and the people are really nice.
Very friendly welcome, offered a choice of tables. Efficient service, food and drinks came out promptly and timing between courses was just right. The food itself was well portioned and full of flavour. I struggled to decide what not to eat so will just have to return and try more!
Good food. I wanted spicy food and that is exactly what I got. The soup to start and the signature curry. The Japanese wheat beer was also a delight. Nice cozy spot. Good service.
Amazing ambiance, variety of food from all over Asia and incredibly delicious and 'clean'. This is my new favourite spot in the area!
Excellent food , good atmosphere but slow erratic service
The front of house were very accomodating and respectful. The chefs never failed with the food. Overall experience was amazing. 10/10 would return :)
Very tasty ‘Asian fusion’ dishes in a cosy, lively setting
What a disappointment! We were so looking forward to have a great meal after reading the good reviews . The service was completely unorganised , unfriendly and unprofessional. The food was very mediocre. Definitely will avoid in the future
We’ve been to ULI 3 times and it never disappoints, I love the flavours. The sea bass with chilli and ginger is delicious. Quite spicy so if you don’t like spicy maybe ULI isn’t the place for you. We love the relaxed but professional atmosphere. They make a mean gin and tonic too!
The food was tasty but I thought quite pricey for what it was. Although I had reserved a few weeks before, and said that it was for a birthday, that was not marked in any way and I was given a table right by the door in the conservatory area on a very chilly evening so I was cold all evening, even using the very nice blanket provided. I felt on the edge of things and not given much attention by the waiters.
