About Lumbini

If you are booking for groups of more than 10 people, please contact the restaurant directly to arrange a deposit of £10 per head.

If you thought Lumbini, by the sound of its name, was an Italian restaurant, you’d be wrong. What’s on offer at this Uxbridge venue is Nepalese cuisine all the way, flavours from the foothills to the highest peaks of the Himalayas. Approaching the restaurant along Oxford Road, you’d once again be forgiven for mistaking this South Asian eatery for a British pub – it’s set in a gorgeous heritage building along the banks of the River Colne west of London – but once again you’d be mistaken. Here it’s all about the spice, cholesterol-free cooking, and unusual dishes.

Lumbini, 12 Oxford Rd, UB9 4DQ London

Further Information

Nepalese cuisine fuses the traditions and taste of Tibetan and northern Indian cookery, making for some unusual South Asian delicacies that London’s jaded palates – thanks to Brick Lane’s never-ending parade of Indian and Bangladeshi restaurants – will love to explore. Lumbini is named after the birthplace of the Buddha, and indeed this Uxbridge restaurant gives diners plenty to meditate on in terms of food and drink, with the house specialties and chef’s recommendations offering a particularly rich source of gastronomic inspiration.

Lumbini only uses olive oil in its dishes and aims for cholesterol-free cookery with minimal use of salt and fat, making for a menu dotted with lean, mean, healthy dishes fit for a sherpa. Get stuck into this Uxbridge Nepalese restaurant’s house specialties like the chef’s favourite kukhura zhinga, chicken breasts stuffed with king prawns and cooked in a mild and creamy sauce with methi leaves and ground spices, or the Lumbini signature kukhura Lumbini, a dopiaza style chicken option. There’s enough going on in the kitchen here up Oxford Road to bring intrepid London diners and connoisseurs of South Asian cuisine out of their familiar city haunts, so be sure to book a table to beat the crowds.

Great welcome really tasty food. Goat curry is a must.! Really relaxing enjoyable evening. Great surroundings. Parking a bit tricky but worth the effort of finding a place. Will go again.

I went there with my managers (5 people in total) from work as it is local to us. It was the first time we had been there and we had a very pleasant evening. The service was very good and we asked the waiter to provide a selection of starters we could all enjoy and they were all enjoyed. We then chose our mains and shared them to have a good overall taste of all the dishes, which were very good and we were all satisfied with the meal and service. We will certainly return and will recommend Lumbini to our colleagues.

This is a lovely restaurant. My partner and I went there for date night, the portions are huge we brought nearly half the food back in a doggy bag that the restaurant was kind enough to put together for us. The ambiance was nice and the food tasted great. The only thing that stops me giving full marks is that we tried to use the taste card deal we found online and it was not so easy. The deal reads 2-4-1 on all starters and mains. When it came to paying the bill we were told that we have to buy starters and mains. My partner and I both read the terms of the deal back to our waiter and he kindly gave us the money off but told us he was doing this out of kindness not because that is how the deal works. He went on to explain that they have been running the deal for years and it had always worked this way, didn't feel like the customers always right, attitude that he first gave when taking the money off our bill. That being mentioned I would visit again.

What a great restaurant! I don't normally bother with reviews, however Lumbini's food is consistently to die for. All dishes I have eaten here so far have been amazing and I come back whenever I can. The décor is tastefully done and the restaurant itself is kept to a high standard of cleanliness and the staff are truly welcoming and very funny!

Not enough experienced staff available to take orders [only one!!]. The manager does this himself, on a round-robin basis from table to table so this meant you could be waiting a while between courses! Having been there before and it not being this bad, I'd like to hope this was down to management wanting everything to be perfect due to it being Valentines day. [as it turned out this had a bit of a negative effect]. Overall experience was great though. Food was really nice and everyone was very polite and helpful (when they did eventually get to your table!).

The restaurant is run by lovely people and the food is always good. When is a big group we ask them to bring a selection of food and its a feast and each item is wonderful. I am always made to be very welcome and my names always remembered even if its 9 months between visits which is was until a month ago then I was reminded of the quality I have been 3 times since then.

Fantastic food, choice, service and atmosphere as usual. The food tastes as described, clearly they put a lot of work into tasting and testing their recipes at Lumbini! Thanks again for having us, we'll see you soon.

Gorgeous found with courteous efficient staff - we visited on a Friday night and there was hardly a table spare so clearly popular. Despite that the place didn't feel crowded and the service was great - as was the food .... We were a family of 4 and we'll definitely be back again!

Overall a good night. Service was a bit slow maybe being down to it was very busy. The food was very good and there was plenty of it. Disappointing that we had 4 bottles of Prosecco and we were given 3 different types,1 which was a bottle you could buy in Aldi for apx £5 and we were charged £21.95 for it, a bit of a rip off.

Not one greatly to remember. was ok. Salad was different, but did not like the "black salt" aroma. Only dish enjoyed was starter of cauliflower as was different. even though i asked if the prawns were deveined, they said yes, but was not, so was disappointed. To much large cut peppers and onions and garlic in everything on top! Lamb was ok. Chicken not too great. Paneer was ok. Disappointed as no traditional nepalese desserts! Just the usual ice cream options. Not happy with seating

The food was lovely but the service wasn't very good. 1 starter didn't arrive until the main course was eaten and we waited ages for drinks. We didn't find the staff very friendly, there was no goodbye or a thank you when we left like in other restaurants we have been to even when they are busy.

This is West London, there are many more & far better Nepalese & Indian restaurants locally that I recommend people to try as opposed to this restaurant. We arrived on time for our booking & were made to wait 10 minutes for our table. When I prompted staff after 5 minutes that we had a booking, I received an abrupt reply 'I know'. They forgot one of our starters (& tried to charge us for it), the mains arrived over a period of 10 minutes & this was only for four people. The desserts menu never arrived although asked twice & the bill payment - after waiting 10 minutes we went & paid at the bar. The food was okay, nothing special & not worth the surprising positive reviews on trip advisor. The thing that I found most disrespectful was the treatment of a group of 6 who had spent the evening at the restaurant. When a group of 15 walked in from the pub, they hurried along their bill and started adding tables & chairs whilst they were still finishing their meal. Just absurd.

The food was excellent, as usual. However, this time the experience was let down by bad service, we waited over an hour for our food, which was much too long. We will be back as the food is good.
