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.

More about Lumbini, London

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.
