“Top buzz and people watching” are undoubtedly the highlight of a visit to this oligarch playground in Mayfair, run by Russian restaurateur, Arkady Novikov. If you are budget conscious, a visit is madness, but – particularly if you like the scene – it offers a “very expensive but very good Russian take on Japanese cuisine”, plus other pan-Asian bites, grills and noodles.

“A playground for oligarchs” – Arkady Novikov’s infamously glam, Eurotrash-magnet remains one of Mayfair’s most happening scenes, luring the fast crowd with its mix of light Asian bites, sushi, grills and noodles. It’s not exactly somewhere to go if you’re counting the pennies, but, actually, “dim sum at lunch is excellent and very reasonably priced”.

For a “perfect, fun buzzy time”, this glam Russian-owned pan-Asian near Berkeley Square is a perennial smash hit with a glossy, very Mayfair crowd. Its mix of sushi, dim sum, charcoal grill dishes and noodles is dependably delectable, but if you are at all budget-conscious, spare yourself the stress induced by the bill and head elsewhere.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
