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 main course was very late.
The manager was very apologetic and offered free desert though.
It is overpriced but does worth the extra buck for the delicious and unique food.

We had a fantastic dinner celebrating my son's 16th birthday. Food was superb, staff were friendly and couldn't do enough for you, music and atmosphere were perfect. My son was made to feel very special, as were all of us. Loved it. We will definitely be back. Expensive, but worth it for a special occasion.

The food was excellent but we could not really enjoy it as they were hurried. They wanted to have the table very quickly. Rushing with the food .. we almost had to swallow it. We ordered a Barolo so you should enjoy it but they served the glass too fast when it was even not empty.. wanted to celebrate a special occassion here but not worth it. It was too noissy.

As always novikov outdoes itself in the menu the quality of food and their ability to make you feel special !! Went to celebrate my husbands bday and they gave us the a desert platter which won the day !!
Only little issue I have is that the table they gave us was near the serving station so it disturbed us continually thru the meal and I feel they shld allow us to book the table we want when we book for the meal .

Lovely setting, staff friendly but a bit overbearing however, we felt rushed throughout our 2hour slot which really spoilt our evening. Three of us at a table suitable for six made conversation difficult. Food was first class and a great variety too. Would I go back? Maybe after trying another establishment of similar standing.

Very smart, buzzy restaurant in Mayfair. We went for the Sunday dim sum lunch. Food was excellent - innovative, delicious and beautifully presented and generous portions. Staff were excellent - friendly, professional and efficient. Glamorous decor and good atmosphere. Highly recommended.

I had a table for 6:30pm and did not get served until just after 7pm. Our drinks came after our starter. The food was very nice but the service was poor. We were asked if we wanted dessert with tea/coffee, we ordered dessert and tea which took a long time to come as well. During eating our dessert we were told that the next diners have arrived and we can no longer sit at our table and should be moved to the bar. 1 there was no space at the bar and 2 who would eat dessert at the bar? We feel that Novikov staff wanted us to just order more food knowing that we wouldn’t have time to eat it. Novikov is not cheap the food is very nice but we wasted food and money! The service was poor which was very disappointing and made the overall experience poor. There are a LOT of staff and if they were not all standing around chatting then maybe we could have enjoyed our meal at a sensible pace.
