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.

Great food, well decorated and friendly staff. Slightly noisy when full.
The tables barely had any space between them, let alone enough to be socially distanced. It was incredibly tight which was not only uncomfortable but nerve wracking given current circumstances. Although the food was nice, the constant hovering from staff to hurry us was frustrating - they were adding tables to our seating 30 mins before our booking was up.
Amazing experience. Literally the food got everyone at the table happy! Recommend it!!!
Good quality and well presented, mainly Chinese, dishes. Two starters, asparagus with black bean sauce and garlic and the soft shell crab stood out. Half crispy duck with pancakes was plenty for four to share as a starter. Will come back next time we're in Notting Hill.
Absolutely terrible service. Rude and inattentive staff. Definitely do not recommend. The pad Thai was good but not worth it for such an experience.
The food was delicious. Service was efficient but the waiters were curt and the occasional smile would have helped.
My wife and I were disappointed by the restaurant, after reading good write ups- as they decided to have a major delivery which meant constant trolley loads of supplies through out our lunch past our table. The food was average and the duck /pancakes was dry and lacking in flavour - not good value.
Will not be returning .
Great food, service very freilndly, would happily visit again
Wonderful from start to finish, great food! Thank you Uli
Food was incredible - if it were up to me I would’ve ordered a lot more but my stomach could not handle any more food! Great vibes, great wine and a beaut little Notting Hill spot
Really lively food and great service. Remains one of my favourite places to eat in the area
I would recommend, definitely a great restaurant!!
Nice place for a birthday - with a mix of indoors and covered outdoor area with nice plants.
Varied selection of pan-Asian food - everything we tried was delicious!
Good wine for the basic price range end.
Only downsides were noise levels, would appreciate quieter music in post-Covid times as it was so busy it was hard to talk!
Hope to be back.
Delicious food and brilliant staff. Highly recommend.
Lovely food and atmosphere. Service was ok but nothing particular. We asked for recommendations and server was not able to suggest anything, answers on questions about food items were very vague.
One of the best Chinese restaurants I’ve ever visited. Good food, ambience and friendly staff
Delicious food as always. Could happily eat here every night!
Nice food but not entirely authentic. The aromatic duck was mainly skin and leftover to put in the pancakes.
Very good authentic Asian food. Rapid service and polite staff. Great for dates and special occasions.
I’ll definitely come back!
Great evening at Uli's as always! Fantastic food and great service.
Delicious food. Service could have been a little more attentive but think they were preoccupied with deliveroo drivers turning up every second that the seated guests weren’t as considered.
Great place - the terrace is great and the food was really good.
The staff were very accommodating, food arrived quickly and was very tasty
We love this friendly local with delicious food. Equally great for a birthday treat or a casual meal and it’s dog friendly too!
Great food and efficient friendly service. Quite a basic setting but nice to be on the terrace and heating/cover protects from the elements if needed.
A much needed late lunch with friends. Great service and delicious food on a warm Sunday afternoon, what more could you need.
We stated on arrival we were all vegetarians due to religious reasons and one of us was gluten free. The waitress gave us an allergen chart which was great.
Firstly the vegetarian dumplings were pork dumplings, my fiancé found out too late and had taken a bite of it! Then my friend who was eating her pad Thai noodles suddenly realised there was gluten in. The restaurant were not sympathetic or very apologetic. We did get 50% off but that is unacceptable considering the special diets that we clearly told them. Although the rest of the food was lovely and the setting was too, I will not be returning.
We had a great time here yet again. Brilliant service. Loved that it was warm with the heaters and roof cover. Can’t wait to come back again
Beautiful set up, lovely outdoor seating area. Food was very tasty, and service was on point. Definitely recommend.
I have been a couple of times to ULI. the food was disappointing this time! It dis not appear to be freshly cooked. The aubergine dish and broccoli was good but the cod and Prawn curry not good at all. Need to improve and get back to their usual standards.
It was a brilliant time ag ULI, there can be only very little complaint. We ordered the singapore noodles and they initially came very salty.
We raised this concern with the staff and they were more than accommodating to help us. They exchanged our food for a version less salty. We were very appreciative of that fact.
The ambience was nice and the scenery was great, the only downside was the fact they had to open the windows when opening the roof when it rained. This brought wind inside, if it weren't for the heating, I would have made a bigger fuss of it.
Staff were friendly and even took pictures of me and my girlfriend for our anniversary, so we were happy with this.
Thank you ULI!
The restaurant took a reservation for 10pm, and only when I arrived early did they inform me the kitchen closes at 10pm.
Even when I got my fellow diner to order ahead, they delivered our starters before she arrived, I asked them to take them back at 10.04pm and they returned 5 minutes later before she arrived, I decided to leave that as she arrived a minute after.
Immediately we started on the starters, they delivered the main meals to the table not allowing us any time to eat the starters, and had main on the table which of course got cold.
Even when I told them it was unreasonable, they did not listen and still served all the food. Very poor attitude of the staff.
Ended up barely eating our starters because of the rush, and taking most of the main meal away, drinks were fine.
We simply did not enjoying the evening or experience at Uli .
I Will not return.
Very lovely restaurant. Helpful staff and heated and warm. Brilliant food. Really large portions. Will visit again x
Sadly the experience was pretty terrible.... It was my birthday dinner and first time out in 8 months so it was pretty disappointing to have such mediocre service and awful food.
I was seated and then ignored for 15 minutes; had to flag someone down for a drink. The dumplings were stodgy and falling part and the filling was like a meat paste. The so called sambal prawns were horrendous- sweet soupy sauce like a bad Chinese take out, 5 prawns and the equivalent of a whole onion that was all but raw.
I guess the steamed rice was fair.
The staff we’re inattentive and showed no real care. Our used dirty chopsticks from our entree were placed on the table to use for our main - no consideration for hygiene. We ended up eating with the serving spoons instead.
The menu sounded so great but poorly executed. This is some of the worst Asian food I’ve had. Disappointing to say the least.
The only drawback is the thumping music all the time. Why bother with music? We go to a restaurant to eat and talk: if we want music we go to a concert! No-one in the restaurant was listening to it.
However, it was very nice to be given two free glasses of wine at the end, even though walking home was a bit of a problem!
Delicious lunch - always fantastic
Food was amazing, I especially liked the massama curry.
Full of flavour
The food was delicious - as usual! Great selection to choose from and the outside terrace is lovely. Nice staff.
Very disappointing food for the price. Very indifferent service.
