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.

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 meal, full of flavours and different spices, tried Figsy Macha (salmon dish) for the first time - really delicious - we wondered why we hadn't tried it before! Great restaurant, staff are friendly and know their food so don't hesitate to ask their advice. It's our No 1 restaurant in the area.

We had some friends with us from Germany and Australia and they all loved it. We will certainly come again. We all loved the goat.

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!

Service was poor, food was cold and nothing special, which was a shame because I was anticipating something different. We were shown to our table on arrival and left with the menu...20mins later I called a waiter to ask if we could order drinks, then had to call them over again to order food, but he said his colleague would take our food order. Two of the waiters just walked up and down looking at customers and didn't seem to know what to do, except serve drinks and clear tables. We ordered our food all together, as it seems we'd be waiting for a while...our starters came out less than 10 minutes after we ordered, chilli chicken and Awuja prawn delivered 3 minutes after poppadums, and they were lukewarm...our glasess were never refilled, the mains came out really quickly after our starters were cleared away, and although hot, they were not as described in the menu. We had chosen two dishes supposed to be spicy and with chilli, Bhedha Gurkali and Masso Masala...they were a huge disappointment. Everything tasted processed, the flavours were bland and uninteresting, the meat was hardly marinated and the curry was tasteless and generic like a jar of Uncle Ben's. We won't be going back.

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.
