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 Luca Malacarne.

The food here is just amazing! Everything we ordered was tasty and well presented. It is slightly on the pricier side however totally worth it and not tiny portions like other top restaurants.
Really great vibe too - was buzzing the whole time we were there. Would definitely recommend!

Food was really nice, thought the price was a bit too much for certain things but that can't be helped taking into account the location. Would definitely go again to try different course. The money bag dim sum, sweet and sour chicken and prawn fried rice were great. Wasn't a fan of the Korean prawns and popcorn calamari had too much batter.

Everything was impeccable from the food, service and atmosphere, I wouldn’t expect anything less from Novikov which is the best restaurant in London, or the UK for that matter.

The Novikov staff are sooo amazing! It was so busy but they were extremely professional with a caring attitude.
The food is the best as far as I’m concerned. I know when I’m eating quality and Novikov is without a doubt Quality!
I come here whenever I can. I highly recommend the dimsum and I never like dimsum anywhere else but every selection I go for is divine. They have a large selection of fresh fish where you can select your choice of fish and they’ll make the dish to your preference! Everything I’ve ever eaten here is superb.
Novikov is the Best!!

The food was not great for astronomical prices. Don’t get me wrong I was looking forward to this restaurant. So disappointing....Novikov management/owner should pay a visit to Imoto in Palm beach Florida to know what is real Asian cuisine.

The food was excellent but way overpriced. I never mind paying a little extra for good quality but this was too much. And the music was far too loud; we could not hear each other. It might be fine the club but not the restaurant.

Came here for the first time as a birthday booking. The staff were amazing and attentive. Friendly and efficient service. Being a Friday night it was busy and can see why as the food was lovely and good value for a restaurant in the area. Will come again and recommend.

My experience with Novikov was odd, I had a good time because I was celebrating my 21st, however when I heard about the whole cake ordeal it really upset me. My friends called up novikov and wanted to bring a cake for me they said it was a 20£ charge to her . Based on that information my friends placed a order on a very expensive cake. Then she gets a call back from a manager called Pamela to say it actually £35 charge to bring a cake in because there are 5 guests. This should have been clarified earlier and better communication . We bought an expensive cake for no reason for extra 35£ to be added on to the bill it's ridiculous so just be aware if you go for a birthday. other than that food was ok and waiters were v nice just upset that my friends had to go through that.

Service was incredibly slow, table was not ready upon arrival. We had to wait 15 minutes for the table an when it was ready we was not seem too for another 15 minutes. Finally when we did order our meal our waiter for the order wrong. At this point I was just agrevated so I mentioned it to the waiter an he was willing to change the order. I just didn't have the patience to wait so I decided to keep the meal. Did not enjoy an once of it horrible. For the average price of the restaurant I believe the service should of been much more effective. If your looking for Asian cuisine please go Nobu or Hakkasan both emasculate.

I have always had a pleasant experience, however, last night (23rd April 2018) I had to wait 35 minutes for my table and the waitress that was serving us or had to take us to the table was not even apologetic, she took us to tour table after 25 minutes then got us back because the table wasn't set yet, although we told her we were happy to sit and then finally after another 10-15 minutes we were taken to the table. One of our servers was excellent, however, everytime we ordered something, it took them really long to bring it out. For example, I waited 20 minutes for my coca cola and my friend waited 15 minutes for water. This is not acceptable. You don't charge an outstanding service fee when your staff is not apologetic about making you wait for almost 40 minutes (I had made a booking in advance) and then when you are made to wait so long for basic things like coke and water. I don't know if I will be coming here as often as I did.

The lady that met us upon arrival was extremely rude, we sat at the bar as we were early. We then had to ask her if our table was ready (30 minutes later!)The service wasn’t great and to be perfectly honest the food wasn’t spectacular for the prices you pay. We did not pay the service charge.
It’s a real shame as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary and we’ve been to a fair few expensive restaurants that are certainly worth the money however, this place certainly isn’t. The decor and layout of food looked spectacular. Sadly I would not recommend.

A small group of us visited this restaurant on 11th April ‘18 for a birthday Dinner. On arrival with a birthday cake we were told that there is a £20 charge for them to bring the cake out. I spoke to the manager about my shock of this given it is not advertised on their website to which she confirmed stating I should have rang in beforehand and would have been told by phone! She was not willing to waiver this charge despite us spending a few hundred pounds in the restaurant and 1 persons meals not arriving until we had all eaten! The food is okay & drinks overpriced at £18 for a cocktail, but I will not be rushing back due to poor customer service received from the manager who was not pleasant and almost ruined our experience completely.

Second time i've been here.
Food very good which is why I came back and it didn't disappoint. I was actually surprised at the speed the food came out, unususal but impressive.

Cons: i had to ask twice for a drink and some slices of lime. Also, i asked to take my leftovers home and that was forgotten. These 3 things being forgotten although small did let me down service wise. You dont feel prioritized when 3 different things have been forgotten.

Great bar/restaurant with great atmosphere. Dim sums, tempura - lovely. Cocktails - nice too. Unfortunately, service - they try to rush you. We were there peak Saturday night 8pm; they just want a fast turnover. Go Thursday night, or Sunday lunch.

Ogni volta che vado a Londra desidero cenare al Novikov, sempre bello, divertente e ottima cucina asiatica, anche per me che non mangio pesce. Questa volta devo aggiungere una nota ulteriormente positiva, in relazione alla cameriera italiana Marta, che ci ha aiutato nella scelta del cibo, è stata carina, simpatica e disponibile.
