Novikov - Asian Restaurant

Asian
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.

This place is completely overstated. Food was very average and not worth the price. The waitress was not very friendly to start with either until
I complained and then she improved. Experience seriously needs some work!

Most of the food was great except two dishes that had to be sent back. The black bean sauce with chicken was incredibly salty and tastes reminiscent of the local takeaway. The starters were all delicious. The forerro rocher desert that was ordered wasn’t up to standard and when this was said to the manager she was very rude in response. She was equally as defensive when I explained about the chicken dish, only because she came over and asked me what was wrong with it but seemed to be annoyed with me actually explaining. That put a big downer on the service. Our waiter was kind and we were warmly welcomed.

We went to a restaurant with a company, ordered expensive wine, food , and after 1.5 hours we were kicked out of the table , we had not finished and did not finish our wine, no one told us about the time limit, we spent 500 pounds for dinner and we were so spoiled

Went for my partner’s birthday. The food came fast and was still hot and so delicious. I highly recommend the duck rolls and black cod rolls.

Our server was very attentive and polite and managed to get my request in to make the date extra special, she surprised him with a “happy birthday” message on the dessert.

The only thing is, it was really busy, on a Monday evening too! So was a bit loud from the customers and the music.

Nonetheless, food and service was great. Will definitely come back for those rolls I mentioned! Thank you!

I regularly dine in the restaurants around Berkeley square and to date this the most underwhelming and disappointing service I have received. Our party had asked for a takeaway order to be prepared whilst we dined to which we were told that it would not be possible as the table had to be given back, we explained that we were happy to wait elsewhere until the order was ready which we would return to collect. Our waiter asked his managers who again refused for us to make a takeaway order despite the fact that we were still seated and eating! I called Novikov the day after our visit to speak to a manager about this and my request to speak to a manager was refused because they were “just too busy to speak to you”. As a paying customer who frequents Novikov and holds large birthday dinners at both of Novikov restaurants, spending large sums of money I will now be taking my business elsewhere and I advise you to do the same.

Overall experience was great, although a tad pricey.

Having said this, would still recommend for the Asian cuisine !

Wasn’t happy with the waiter who served me. They were not very welcoming and made me uncomfortable. I noticed they gave the table next to me who were white very good service - this made me even more sceptical. I came to dine alone - felt rushed also. This isn’t my first time at Novikov so I was a bit shocked to be treated as such. Either the waiter was just having a bad day or she didn’t like me as a customer? Extremely not happy. However I will highlight that the two lady’s at the reception area as you walk in were extremely nice. Food was also nice though
