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.

Diner Reviews
  • "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 had a great time. The food was very good. The server was very friendly. The starters came out pretty quickly...however there was a big lag between the time we finished our starters and the time they brought our main courses."

  • "we went for dinner Asian side ordered sushi, dumplings were amazing, from main course and desert every thing was great i love it. i would love to go again and ambience was great perfect light . interior is well decorated, i love wooden ceiling."
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "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."

  • "I have heard a lot about Novikov and finally mae time to go, its the most amazing place, he food was fresh and light, I highly recommend"

  • "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."

  • "Heavily overpriced. Please hire some real Japanese advisor. You can afford it."

    dined on 03/07/2014
  • "I was impressed with the service and the way they take you round to show you all the seafood and explain to you how each is cooked and what vegetables would be best suited with your meal."
    dined on 02/07/2014
  • "Amazing, Amazing, Amazing. We opted for the 5 different dim sum each, costing just £25 each. The Dim Sum is amazing, they do a Vietnamese frogs legs one which is incredible. All the dim sum was unreal though, and it was well enough food. We were very full. Really nice restaurant, and great staff, had a very friendly Chinese waitress, the front of house staff make you feel welcome. Definitely the best place I've visited in London recently."
    dined on 29/06/2014

  • "We booked the Asian restaurant. Some of the dishes are very expensive but others are reasonable. The restaurant was very busy but the food was excellent and the service very attentive. Not a cheap night out but definitely worth it on a special occasion"
    dined on 28/06/2014
  • "very luxurious with food and service excellent but not Michelin star grade, However they are more expensive than that. Problem is its way too expensive for most people."
    dined on 21/06/2014
  • "Went for birthday celebrations - bar staff are sooooooo snobbish! Expensive drinks to stand around!"
    dined on 20/06/2014
  • "We had tuna maki and yellowtail sashimi for starter which were average. For main course, I would recommend the duck rice and truffle duck which were both delicious. For dessert we had chocolate fondant which was very average. Overall the food was not as outstanding as I would expect for that price. The service was awful. At the end of our meal we were told very rudely that we had to leave because the next table was waiting. I don't mind this policy but this was not communicated at the start of the meal. We were then handed the bill as a prod to get us moving. Would not go again"
    dined on 20/06/2014
  • "Lovely early evening meal with a friend. Lovely and welcoming staff, and great food. Had the black cod rolls with mango sauce, truly scrumptious!!!!!! We also had duck fried rice, chicken wings, tempura prawns and pork belly. All beautifully made. Well done Novikov"
    dined on 19/06/2014
  • "Food, service, location, ambience all excellent combination that pleases anyone that will dine here. Even the dance music that starts up at 10.30 pm was not annoying!"
    dined on 11/06/2014
  • "My and the misses went on a date, and fully enjoyed every starter and main mean we ordered, full of flavour and taste. The service we received was top, from the topping up of our drinks to the serviing of our rice amd noodles. Great place to eat with top service. Planning to ho again very soon "
    dined on 07/06/2014
  • "I thought the food was really nice (especially the coriander shirmp dumplings and the tuna, fois gras and truffe carpaccio - don't miss out on these two dishes!). We had 3 courses (various items) and paid each 90£ (that's incl predrinks and wine). Ask for a talbe on the side (it's a very bustling place). If I am back in town, I'll go back and eat there again."
    dined on 03/06/2014
  • "I've eaten here several times now and it's the best Asian food I've eaten. Be cautious ordering from the market display as it can be very expensive."
    dined on 01/06/2014
  • "Great food and great service. Waitress was very helpful in helping us pick what to eat. Food cam hot and quick...and they serve the best lychee martini ever! My favourite drink. Deffo a must go! "
    dined on 30/05/2014
  • "I visited for an early dinner on Friday with a friend. The menu is pricey, but the food is worth it - we shared scallops+asparagus, half roast duck and some prawn rice, which was the highlight of the dinner. The sommelier helped pick out a lovely bottle of red to accompany the food. It was understandably quiet when we got these, but by the time we left, the restaurant was buzzing and lively. Great night out, will also visit the bar next time around."
    dined on 30/05/2014
  • "Great food, different dim sum to usual, just very pricey."

    dined on 24/05/2014
  • "sorry but NOT a patch on Nobu or Roka average service told us the tom yam soup had come out poor quality having waited fir ages and would we prefer truffle mushroom which they charged fully for "
    dined on 20/05/2014
  • "Great location. Arrived 1 hour early on a Friday eve and checked in at reception. Lounge was very nice and good to wait in although the drinks were unreasonably overpriced. Returned to reception almost 10 mins before the reservation time and informed them we were present only to be booked 20mins late with no notice, or apology. I personally had to walk back to the reception and inform them to seat us. The booking hostess at reception, overly casual and rather indifferent. The food was great and the wait staff was friendly, but often had to be flagged down to provide assistance. "
    dined on 16/05/2014
  • "We has to wait for about 1 hour, we sat at 10.45 instead of 9.45. For two reasons: some people came and without reservation had immediately the table, second reason people of the previous turn didn't want to leave the table. We were very angry, at the end we asked a discount on the bill but the manager didn't give it. "
    dined on 15/05/2014
  • "Excellent selection of Asian cuisine with a touch of Europe. Possibly the best sushi in town as well. "
    dined on 13/05/2014
  • "we went for lunch on a tuesday, food was fantastic and a very friendly enviroment, but you are given a 2 hour timeslot and we felt a bit rushed. Be careful when the waitress recommends anything, it is usually the most expensive on the menu!"
