Time Out Says
When a slice of London’s Mayfair dining scene lands in Dubai, it’s going to attract attention, and Novikov does for all the right reasons. Words such as plush, slick and sophisticated only touch on how impressive Novikov is. It’s set out in two sections, catering for smokers by the bar with low tables and casual couch-style seats, and there’s a non-smoking section towards the back of the sprawling space, set up like a classic dining room. The dim lighting, warm orange and oak tones accentuated by red cushions and purple backlit walls make a classy statement. And these first impressions get better as the food is served. The menu is a sprawling list of Asian-fusion dishes, such as lobster tacos – which are bursting with flavour – and Chilean sea bass with chilli garlic sauce. There’s also sushi, sashimi, tempura, dim sum, wok-fried dishes and more, all that we tried being full of flavour, perfectly executed and wonderfully presented, not least the black cod with yuzu miso sauce on the side. It’s stunning – the fish perfectly falling apart with a prod, the sauce delicately balanced with just the right amount of sweetness and zest. Staff are attentive and leave you to ultimately enjoy a great meal with minimal fuss. For a flawless dining experience look no further. Novikov is firmly on our radar and should be on yours, too.
