A word from Novikov - Asian Restaurant
The main entrance off Berkeley Street leads into the Asian Restaurant. Here cool granite walls complement the striking lacquered ebony bar-counter decorated with a jade stone. Materials used in this area - wood, stone and leather - are all natural. They are offset by subtle features such as a wall of cracked stone and bamboo chandeliers. The atmosphere here is at once welcoming and relaxing, but subtle enough not to distract from the food itself. A real feature of the Asian Restaurant is its open kitchen. Fronted by an amazing display of seafood and vegetables, it evokes the atmosphere of an Asian food market. The Asian Restaurant specialises in Chinese and Pan Asian cuisine, with a menu designed by highly skilled and experienced Japanese-trained Head Chef Jeff Tyler. Tyler is known for his love of experimenting with different textures, flavours and ingredients, a talent that is much in evidence in dishes such as King Crab with Penang Sauce and Pork Belly with Spicy Glaze.

  • "2nd visit here, really excellent. Desserts good too."
    dined on 03/04/2014
  • "Monied Arabs and Russians with the odd sprinkling of 'locals'. The food is some of the best I've tasted; we had the Asian food (sushi etc). It was a Tuesday and the place was packed full. If it's a quiet romantic dinner you're after then this is probably not the place. If it's a bunch of you (or you're in a party mood) and you like the hubbub, then it's a good place. The staff, well, they're busy so speed takes precedence over politeness, but they're were mostly on hand anyway. The food came quick, which did surprise me as the food is prepared (it's not MacD's afterall!) But, damn, the food was good! Oh, the bar downstairs is good place to start before/after the restaurant. Would I go again? Yes. Every week? No!"
    dined on 02/04/2014
  • "Have been for dinner at novikov before and it's GREAT fun even on Monday nights but have never had a lunch. Wondered what it would be like as it feels like quite an evening place but it was nice - not too crowded, great food obviously and fun Mayfair and Bond Street shoppers gossiping over their purchases. Enjoyed it and would go for lunch there again."
    dined on 19/03/2014
  • "Perfect for date night! Lovely atmosphere, creative drinks menu and quite a few healthy good options, filling portions"
    dined on 22/03/2014
  • "Really enjoyed our evening - food excellent. Good atmosphere. Negatives - Table was not ready on arrival and was forced to stand at a busy bar with no seats. The call centre girl who called to reconfirm the room was very rude and uninviting."
    dined on 22/03/2014
  • "A very super cool place to eat and drink...some of the best fresh market produce from the market right in front of your eyes. Lobster, clams, scallops, white asparagus and padron peppers adorn the market. Love this restaurant. Chef Jeffrey and Juan do a fab job in the kitchens and service is red hot efficient! Goodbye Hakasan hello Novikov!"
    dined on 21/03/2014
  • "Food was great as always, we only need to wait for table for 50 minutes which almost happen every time."
    dined on 01/03/2014
  • "As we were seated from then on we received poor service. But throughout the whole experience the Waiters got table number wrong, no one was smiling, no one was checking on us, the waiters changed over without us knowing. Managers on their phone in the middle of service, all of the managers standing there not doing anything. We ordered dessert and that was amazing as I requested it was our anniversary and they put a candle on our dessert with a little message on the plate. No recommendation through out the whole meal. Even when the bill came she did not ask us how was the food. To top it off they had hostess waiting at the door to seat people but they did not thank us or say good night and only a runner waiter said thank you to us."
    dined on 08/03/2014
  • "Scallops & white asparagus was in reality one scallop. 30 pounds - super tiny portion, not even in the "starters" section. That was outrageous."
    dined on 05/03/2014
  • "I have eaten at the restaurant now on three occassions and it has never failed to impress with the attentiveness of the waiting staff, the ability to see and select your food before preparation and then the quality of the cooked food is fantastic! It is not cheap, but as a rare treat it is well worth visiting for those who enjoy a nice meal. We will definitely be going back!"
    dined on 28/02/2014
  • "I doined here for my husband's birthday and was not dissapointed. the food was delicious and the service was great too. I would love to eat here again very soon."
    dined on 03/03/2014

    dined on 26/02/2014
  • "I love the lunch offer at Novikov and will be returning. It is one of my favourite Asian restaurants in London."
    dined on 17/02/2014
  • "This was an excellent treat for us and the food, service and ambience were exceptional. Highly recommended to anyone thinking of going out for a "special" meal in London or even for taking out business colleagues."
    dined on 17/02/2014
  • "We had no reservations, and they said we had an hour to be finish.. Because of that we ordered quick, ate and drank too fast. When we were finished, we didn't have to move and could sit there another hour... Apart from that, Novikov is my favorite restaurant by far. The service, food and the music are perfect! I love it!!!"
    dined on 13/02/2014
  • "Even with pre booking we've waited 20m for our table. But after that service was efficient and good quality food!! We will surely go back!"
    dined on 12/02/2014
  • "The service was amazing, the food was great and good ambiance"
    dined on 09/02/2014
  • "Every 5mins we were told our table would be ready in 2mins. one would say our table was vacated & they are setting up, 10mins later another said the people were just leaving. We sat down at 10.55 for 10.15 booking. They didn't give us menus? Perhaps we were meant to eat the napkins for a starter. There was 1hr wait between courses, the manager came over with a measly glass of champagne as way of apology. Recently dining at Asia de Cuba, we were kept waiting between courses, the manager was terribly apologetic & did not charge for the cocktails the wine & the entree, from that act alone it was clearly a blip that night & most definitely not the norm. Sadly Novikov it's standard practice hence it is a haunt of the Russians & Middle East only"
    dined on 08/02/2014

    dined on 19/01/2014
  • "amazing food. ive eaten in nobu a few times and this place is sooo much better. the sushumi is fab as is the spicy tuna. service was great. we had lots of people taking care if us but not overdoing it. Admittedly it is super expensive. But, its great for a treat or occassion. the bar downstairs is good for an after dinner cocktail too. IJust shy of £200 for both of us and a few cocktails - but worth it."
    dined on 30/12/2013

    dined on 03/01/2014
  • "We got 15 minutes before our reservation so we waited at the bar, but they didn't call us until 20 after our reservation time was due. Our waitress was the worst she took 45 minutes to bring our second courses and she was really confused about all the service. We order more drinks and they took more than 20 mins so we ended up canceling them. Overall pretty bad and wouldn't go back or recommend it."
