Novikov Doha is located in Katara Cultural Village, Qatar’s biggest and most diverse cultural venue, which holds major art and cultural events year- round. The restaurant is in the heart of Katara’s long-awaited Katara Plaza, a mix of premium and luxury boutiques that will host performances, fashion shows and other events.

Novikov Doha will be the Japanese-Chinese fusion eatery’s second Middle East outpost. Originating in London’s Mayfair, it has expanded to top international locations, including Dubai.

Novikov Doha’s interior was carefully designed to convey the ambiance and atmosphere of the original Novikov London, from the restaurant entrance to the seafood and vegetable display, which is meant to inspire diners. It was created by the same design team that worked in London — Geometry Design by Irina Glik.

Please note our dress code policy is smart/casual and we do not allow shorts or beachwear.

Service wasn’t good overall. Worst part was that I made a special request to for a surprise celebration over dessert and the waitress blew it. The tables were too close to each other and no attempt was made to distance the guests in compliance with covid 19 guidelines.
The food was good as always, but I think I’ll opt for home delivery next time.

Excellent food and service. Atmosphere inside is great, but we sat outside and the terrace was just too quiet with no music or much light.
Watch out when ordering the duck!! It was deceiving and too small. Nothing like we are used to in Europe.. and they didn’t really make that clear on the menu, but certainly charged for a full big fat duck!! Overall great restaurant

I have been going toNovikov Doha since it opened on a regular basis both with my wife and in a group. The food has always been excellent and we have enjoyed the quality/standards of food.

The service however has consistently deteriorated since Novikov Doha has opened. 20 minute wait from being seated to be offered a drink. Food coming out at different times so people do not have their food while others are eating. When their food eventually comes out the rice/noodles are cold.

We really enjoy Novikov Doha but cant help but feel they have taken their focus off their service which is a common theme for the last 3/4 visits.

What amazing food and service. We sat outside where the area was air conditioned via the floor. We ended up having 3 courses although we originally went for a snack as it was such a lovely location and ambiance. Salmon sushi and desserts were amazing.
