Description: 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. 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. Sourcing the highest quality, utilising skillful innovation and preparation from Japan and China to preserve the essence of our product. The Italian Restaurant has a modern but elegant feel, complete with an imposing wood-fired oven, suede wall panelling, handmade Moroccan tiles, mirrors in solid oak frames and chandeliers with candles. Complex, state-of-the-art lighting systems can change the atmosphere from sunrise to sunset, from season to season. The Lounge Bar is a must-visit destination, with an extensive cocktail menu, live music and performances by some of the world’s top DJs.

Been to Novikov several times for business as well as with friends and family. The food is very good; especially on the Asian side, but at the end of the day it is no different than Nobu or Zuma. Service is as good as it should be and venue is a lot of fun - especially when you go downstairs to the bar. Keep in mind the opulence is reflected in the prices.

There was a lot of buzz surrounding the opening of this place so we decided to give it a go in spite of some negative reviews. We went for dinner at the Asian rest. The interior is too large, too flashy and somewhat brash.
We tremendously over ordered not knowing the size of the portions or keeping track really, but the waiter taking our order never advised us. The food arrived rather haphazardly with the lobster arriving a good 35 mins after we had finished the last dish. We had actually asked for the bill and some 10 mins later the waiter came running saying that we still had the Lobster and we had to wait 15 mins for it! That aside the food is good. I wouldn't advise against this place.

We had dinner on the Italian restaurant and the food was good not amazing though the priced are amazingly high but this is how they do it now this controls the level of clientele so be prepared to be expected to spend. Service was fine not a pour-your-wine level of service though which you would expect at these prices

I had a client entertainment function at the bar and was dismayed to find that as a female I was not allowed in the bar in flat shoes despite having a foot injury. Women are only allowed to wear heels. Men on the other hand can wear trainers and any type of flats they want. I did notice a number of women enter the bar in flats but was told this was because they were dining. I was also addressed in quite a disrespects manner by a couple of bouncers. I'm not sure if this is a case of location going to the head but I will never go to a place like this again particularly as I was addressed in such a condescending and sexist manner. My advice don't go here!

I went to the Italian restaurant for my son's 19th birthday with a group of his friends. An absolutely dreadful experience. Highly priced food but with possibly the worst service I have ever experienced. Surly staff, wrong orders, no drinks and all the vegetable side dishes appearing 10 minutes after we had finished our main courses.They at least reduced the bill but I will never go there again.
