In the heart of Portobello a new type of gastro pub has become a staple piece. This Japanese style restaurant, Ukai, provides a warm and welcoming atmosphere as well as quality food and service. The menu created by Chef Alex contains sushi, dim sum, a range of tropical fish, and even Hamachi. Chef Alex’s passion for Japanese cuisine shines through in his delicious selections. Along with Chef Alex, bar manager Panos utilizes his creativity in mixing new and exciting cocktails from Lady Macha, which includes Velvet Macha tea, Ciroc Vodka, elderflower liqueur, homemade cardamom bitters and soya syrup, to innovative drinks found at the bar.


Ukai has become a true foundation in the area with locals, tourists and celebrities alike frequenting the Portobello hot spot. Ukai also delivers a unique music experience bringing live music every Friday evening and Saturday afternoon during peak hours. And, don’t forget to say hello to manager Ian, who is practically a celebrity in his own right in the area. Working at Ukai for over two decades, Ian knows how to keep the crowds happy and Ukain customers coming back.
