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.

Table booked for 8:45 wasn’t seated until 9:15. Had to stand in the cold.

They also removed our umbrella which was providing heat not sure why so we had to ask for it to be put up again as rain drops were falling on us.

Also we noticed that we were the only Black group of people and they switched our waitress to a Black lady from initially a white man (both of whom were nice) but it felt as though they were pre-empting that we’re “difficult” so gave us the Black waitress.

The front of house staff were nice and food was good however.

I usually visit Novikov and never have any complaints. But on this occasion I was truly disappointed. I usually order the seafood and beef dishes but this time I decided to try chicken. I ordered the chicken with black bean sauce. It was very crispy and too hard to eat. So I made a complaint and the waiter offered another chicken dish. When the second dish arrived, the chicken served was raw and not cooked properly at all. I was already put off my meal by then. I don’t want to put any of you off by uploading the pics of the raw chicken. The waiter said the chef had apologised. But sadly this experience was not up to the standard I usually have when I visit Novikov.

Came for lunch, got our order wrong, told them and they isn’t being the correct dish, told them again and finally they brought it after we’d finished all our other dishes. Didn’t bring our drinks. The food wasn’t very nice besides the sushi that was nice.

Service was below average. Table wasn’t ready and it took at least 15 minutes to be asked our drinks order. The restaurant was bland in every way. The food was average and I’d be in no rush to return.

We were 15 mins late to lunch however this did not stop the service from remaining superb. Everyone was very welcoming and very friendly. The service over all was amazing. A special thanks to our waiter Denys

Food was beautiful and atmosphere was amazing. Waiter wasn’t very friendly. The waiter at the door was very nice who walked us to our table but the waiter looking after our table wasn’t.

We had a good dining experience with our sons aged 9 and 13. The food was lovely and staff very attentive. Only disappointment was being offered water persistently and then charged £6 per bottle.
