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.

Thrown out early
Great night ruined by need to eject us 10mins before our two hour slot.
We arrived early table wasn’t ready. Then ten mins later it was.
Then we had to stand and wait
Sat down twenty ministers late then asked to leave table after hour and half.
Too expensive for service like that.

Novikov Asian and Italian a place must go if you are in London. Buzzing with well dressed people and some great sumptuous food. They have a nice lounge bar if you want some serious drinking to be done. Wide variety of drink selections.

It was absolutely perfect way to celebrate my partner's birthday. I couldn't have asked for anymore frankly speaking. However they were too much waiters which made the place a tad crowded. Apart from that it was perfect

Thanks I will be back again.

Great flavours and excellent service. A bit dark on the ambience side and the bar gets hidden from sight if sitting round a column/pillar. But the food, service and courtesy levels are par excellence! Entrance area along the bar with view of Novikov Italian is also worthwhile.

From the hostess who greeted us to our waitress and the other friendly servers I really enjoyed our dinner. My fiancé comes every time he’s in London & the great things he’s told me were all true. The waygu tacos were phenomenal I ordered two. I enjoyed the fresh market and being able to pick out the fish I wanted. Our waitress gave very good suggestions & the red mullet fish was delicious. There was a nice variety on the menu & dessert was perfect. Can’t wait to go back!!!

Great service and beautifully presented and delicious food. My husband and I often come here alone but this time we took our three children for lunch on a Sunday for my husband’s birthday. The kids are aged 5, 2, and three weeks old! The staff were particularly lovely with the children, bringing colouring pencils and pictures to keep them occupied, and considering we had a newborn we were surprised at how relaxed and easy the whole meal and outing was! Many thanks to the restaurant staff for another lovely meal.

We were told we had to leave our table as we had over stayed the two hour period. We had only been sat for an hour so we argued this. The waiter then said that we were lying and that we had been seated at 8pm when we had in fact not been seated until almost 9pm. We had to leave which ruined the experience.

It used to be a good place but they overcharge with dishes I never ordered.
Be careful if you are seated close to the market produce next to the cashier - worst table ever.

The atmosphere and food was fantastic. The vegetable noodles and prawns were made with the highest quality of ingredients. One thing that stood out for me was the Upside Down dessert and I would recommend it to everyone. Service was outstanding as well, waiters and waitresses were always there. Overall the experience was amazing.

Never again would I go here. I booked a table weeks out and it was a terrible experience. The food was terrible when I said I had a sesame allergy the waiter made it seem like a crime to have dinner there. I said the same the next night at roka and they were able to produce some phenomenonal food. They even actually came and asked us to leave saying they needed the table. Food took forever and it was genuinely terrible

First time at Novikov Asian and it did not disappoint, actually quite surprised how lovey it was as I’m not so much of a sushi/seafood person but there are good menu options. Black cod dim sim and chicken in black bean sauce was delicious.

No less than six wait staff dealt with our table, which may explain the poor service. There was confusion and tension, and long waits for things to happen. Ten minutes after seating did we get the main menu. After requesting the bill it took twenty minutes to finally get to our table so that we could leave - and by the end we could. Food amazing - as expected - but the chaos around the wait staff really diminished the experience. Our 'main' waiter was a Greek gentlemen who left us unattended for long periods of time. His English was difficult to understand and after asking for recommendations we really had no idea what he was saying so we just went with whatever he said. Yet another waiter brought someone elses's food to our table, only for it to be whisked away again moments later - after one of us had a taken a bite. Food arrived haphazardly as it was cooked - fair enough - but we were never quite sure when everything had arrived - because our waiter was nowhere to be seen.

I didn't leave a tip - I was so annoyed about spending £90 per head for such dreadful service - maybe the worst I have ever experienced

Novikov is a good restaurant in an expensive part of London, so naturally the prices are quite high. My vegetarian dishes were very tasty, but my friend found her wagyu steak to be overcooked and tough - not something that you expect when paying £68 for 180g. Everything is charged extra, so the bill was quite a surprise - nearly £200 for the two of us and we shared a carafe of medium priced white wine. Still not quite sure how we got to that total to be honest. All in all a nice experience, but perhaps stick to their concept of a fresh fish market and give the wagyu steaks a miss.
