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.

Have to say this is my least favourite dining experience this year. I was ignored by 2 members of staff when trying to advise i had arrived for my booking. We was celebrating yet our table was in the corner out of the ambience and main restaurant area. Our waitress seemed annoyed when I asked another waiter for a soft drink.

It’s the first time I felt uncomfortable dining out and that’s because of some of the superficial staff and attitude they had.

The waiters were too pushy to promote drinks and dishes. It was unpleasant.

Horrible dinning experience. The wine was spoiled and they refused to change it. We found a snail shell in our salad, our waiter was extremely unprofessional about the whole situation. Very disappointing restaurant.

A very enjoyable evening; the food was very good and the service excellent. A little pricey maybe, but given the location, not a surprise.

The whole experience was excellent from start to finish. The team kindly brought us a cake with ‘happy anniversary’ written with a sparkler after my partner surprised me and phoned up a few weeks before - it was lovely for the team to remember (I was pleasantly surprised)

The only thing was the drink service was a little slow - we ordered two cocktails and two soft drinks and only the cocktails arrived which took around 25 minutes - luckily we were not charged for this the soft drinks that we didn’t receive.

Apart from this, the whole occasion was fantastic and I would definitely return.

Novikov is the go to restaurant for my parter and I for any special occasions. The service is professional and friendly and the food is out of this world. Some of the meals can be a little expensive, but the quality of the ingredients and the cooking makes it more than value for money. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys good food.

Very nice food but nonetheless overpriced and not as good as other similar priced options. Great atmosphere with good vibe and music, service good but not exceptional (our table wasn’t ready and we had to wait 15mins being offered a £16 cocktail while we waited) for example.

I believe the quality of the food at the Asian (have also tried their Italian and loved it) is not value for money. Very expensive and mediocre food in its large majority (at least from what we have tried).

Outstanding service like nothing I have seen before led by Theodoros.

Excellent choice of appetizers and main courses

Discreet atmosphere as we liked it because of the VIP status of my guests.

Overall outstanding experience. Highly recommended.

Myself and my girlfriend went to Novikov for dinner. Although it is expensive, the food was really good for what is essentially an up market Asian food. The only thing that wasn’t great was the Singapore noodles. The service is brilliant and the facilities are very nice. All in all it was a great evening and we will return again at some point!

The meal was very tasty and flavoursome. Would definitely recommend the Duck & Pancakes. It also comes with a lovely 2nd course of Duck which was very delicious. However, the main courses came out separately, the Singapore noodles came out 10 mins before our prawn and chicken main dishes which didn’t make sense. There were also a lot of waiters hovering the table which made it uncomfortable. The tables were also too close together, you could overheat everyone’s conversation.

Portions are dreadful, had to order another main after the first one wasn’t enough, along with the starters we already had and also had a few pieces of my girlfriends sushsi. Quality wise I would say I expected better

The Food at Novikov was excellent! We ordered a variety of dishes and they were all amazing. The service however, was very poor. All the staff (apart from one) had a lot of attitude and came across as very "stuck up". As soon as you walk in, you're not greeted with a smile, the ladies at the reception come across as very haughty. The waiter who was serving us was exactly the same - we were forced to repeat our order a few times, simply because he couldn't remember our order!

I called to say i was running 10 minutes late. My table was booked for 21.15 i arrived 21.25 yet my table was not ready. I was told to wait at the bar but not offered a free drink. I finally was taken to my table at 9.45. This is a club restaurant so don't expect fine dining treatment. Too noisy in the Asian restaurant with very loud music. Good place for groups but not a romantic setting for a couple.

Our first experience of Novikov, a very good Saturday night meal celebrating my girlfriend’s birthday. So many exceptional sounding dishes on the menu, very spoilt for choice. The food was very good, although I would say that it didn’t quite live up to the five stars we would have expected, and I’d say the same with the service, again very good but not quite what I expect from a restaurant of this calibre, very efficient but a little cold.
We will however be back, and I would recommend Novikov to friends.
