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.

    The service personal was too hectic and seemed nervous, maybe it's because they want to make it too good :) we felt a little under pressure. Seating was too tight.... Overall location impression was very nice and meal was excellent. Not cheap.

    I was looking for a nice halal restaurant to bring my wife to for her birthday and Novikov was perfect. (The food has been verified as halal by the restaurant and also states which dishes are on the menu). The seating was fine with a great view of the kitchen and food market which she loved. We startered with the prawn & Chiken Dim Sum and salmon Sashimi which was lovely. For the mains we had the Lamb Cutlets & Beef Steak (which was beautiful) with some prawn fried rice on the side. Everything was very tasty and service was great. The price for two with drinks (Mocktails) came to £120 which for the location and everything I guess is expected but I think around the £100 is what I would have paid for what we ordered. I would come back again.

    I booked a table for 10.15 pm. We were there 5 mins earlier. The hostess told me that the table will be ready soon. After another 25 min, I went to her again to inquire about my table. The only answer I received was that she will look into it. After another 5 min I left, having waited for more than 30 min. At 11 pm I received a phone call informing me that the table would be ready now, which would have been a 45 min wait. Fortunately by then, I was already having dinner at another restaurant.

    The waiters despite being polite we're annoying and were rushing everything which is not good for a night with friends. There is a 2 hour limit on your reservation which could explain waiters' behaviour. But the time limit itself is a horrible idea. Don't go there if you want to chat with friends.

    I took my husband to Novikov restaurant last saturday for his 35th birthday and I couldnt be happier! We had such a lovely time from the beginning to end. The restaurant is beautiful, and the ambiance is amazing, I felt really welcomed. The food is delicious as i was expecting, the only thing i must say it is that the portions are quite small you need to order more than you expect. We stayed at the Asian part and we definitely going to return to the italian side.

    The food is amazing, I would reccommend the Wasibi Prawns & duck Salad ! The service is Over the top, & they literally do not leave you alone at all ! So, if you are after a meal with a friend for a long girly chat, without constant distractions !! This not the place & even a polite request to leave us be and we will call you did not work ! However, they did accomadate us in the lounge downstair for after drinks ! Overall, good night !

    Their foie gras dumplings are amazing and together with the sushi (maki rolls - tempura prawn and peking duck) and scallop & truffle sashimi makes for a taste sensation of a meal. I was day dreaming about it the next day - it really is fantastic! Service is great and we had a wonderful time.

    Love the vibe and atmosphere of this place, great whether your on a date or in a group! This really is great for foodies, I loved the array of fresh food; colourful vegetables to fresh fish. The Malaysian soft shell crab is defo worth a get! On top of that, the service is just what you would expect, nothing less :) If you have time head down to the bar afterwards, always lively and worth a stay for a few drinks.

    Beautiful food. The waitress looking after us was very attentive. The display of seafood and fresh ingredients in front of the kitchen where you could see the chefs at work through glass was impressive. The wine list was extensive though expensive. A great restaurant for a special occasion. Not too noisy so easy to talk.

    The initial impressions of Novikov are good and what you would expect from an upmarket, Mayfair restaurant. However, once seated, next to a tank filled to the brim with eels awaiting their fate and a live lobster on the ice display who threw itself to the floor in protest at being gawked at by squeamish customers, the service was slow and the staff were preoccupied with a diner whose coat was ruined by a clumsy waitress and some oyster sauce. The food itself was average and I've had better at Wagamamas. My husband's deep fried soft shell crab had the acrid flavour of old cooking oil and was returned to the kitchen, thankfully it was taken off our bill. We will most definitely not be returning and don't bother with the lounge bar either!

    We were welcomed in a friendly manor and taken to our tables, the service was one of the best I've ever seen, definitely the best in this cuisine I've ever tasted with great vegetarian options, when we were unsure of what to order, we were asked to give examples of the foods we like and recommendations were based on that. The table of live foods are excellent show and definitely make you spend on the over charged international fruits. This is definitely somewhere I'd visit again.

    Our original reservation was for 9:45pm , called the restaurant and changed it to 10:45pm, i asked the person on the phone about the last order but for some reason he refused to tell me, all he said was you have enough time. Upon getting there we were seated on our table at 11:15pm!! and were rushed to order our main courses!! i even told the lady who was seating us that i dont want to be rushed but thats exactly what happened. we were basically forced to finish our dinner by midnight! Not going back and would not recommend it to anyone either!

    The food here is excellent. We went on a tuesday evening and the restaurant was completely full so the atmosphere is also great. The food is of very high quality, with a lot of interesting and varied options on the menu. The wine list is also extensive. However, this is what you'd expect given the price so the restaurant is pretty much what you would expect. I would definitely recommend a visit but this isn't a place i would visit regularly but more for special occasions.
