Mayfair, Belgravia



Russian restaurateur Arkady Novikov has launched three restaurants in one on this Berkeley site - a restaurant serving Asian seafood, another serving an Italian menu and a 'Far Eastern-themed bar'. Novikov owns a multi-million dollar restaurant empire in Moscow so expect plenty of bling. The chef for the Italian room Stefano Stecca comes via Zafferano and the Brunello restaurant at the Baglioni hotel in Kensington.

"Turns out our online booking expires at 9.30pm but we haven't finished our wine (this'll give you an idea of the speed; in my life, this has never happened), throwing our charming server into a lather." READ REVIEW

"If you are affluent, Novikov is a lot of fun. Millions of pounds have been lavished on the decor. It’s glamorous. It’s rich. If it were a private club, I’d be trying to get in." READ REVIEW

"If the idea of having sashimi of botan ebi with caviar followed by duck fried rice and king crab leg in blackbean sauce sounds good, this is your kind of place. If you’re a purist, step speedily away." READ REVIEW

"I said you can get most of the menu somewhere else, but not all of it. Unfortunately, the things you can't get anywhere else are things you don't want to eat." READ REVIEW

"The maki of soft-shell crab was back on track. Yellowtail with coriander and a spot of chilli was better than the original across the road in Nobu." READ REVIEW

"...the service was unusually warm for this kind of restaurant. But just like other Mayfair establishments of this ilk, you pay heavily just for the privilege of being there." READ REVIEW

"The real surprise, however, was the food – which was, with one exception, consistently impressive. The quality comes as more a shock, because a pan-Asian menu – by definition – lacks any sort of coherency." READ REVIEW
