Harden's says

In a major departure for The Ivy group, the second floor of the new Ivy Spinningfields complex is an Asian restuarant; opulence is the key word for the decor, which includes a green floor made of semi-precious stone.

On the second floor of Spinningfields – this Asian-themed branch of Richard Caring’s ever-growing Ivy-branded empire set a new direction when it opened a couple of years ago. Fans of OTT decor find the interior “wonderful” – the green floor is made of semi-precious stone and a pagoda roof adorns the bar. Since this opened they've exported the Asian concept ‘darn sarf’, via St Paul's (in Jamie Oliver’s former Barbecoa site), Chelsea and – as of late 2021 – an upcoming Guildford site. The pan-Asian menu is more than an afterthought – generally rated quite highly – but a little beside the point.

In a major departure for Richard Caring’s Ivy group, the second floor of the new Ivy Spinningfields complex is an Asian formula. True to form, though, opulence is the key word for the décor, which includes a green floor made of semi-precious stone. It is, depending on your point of view, “a glorious, romantic setting for delicious food” or “pretentious and over-the-top”; but the overall ratings are stronger all-round here than at most of the other Ivy spin-offs; and either way, it’s “great for people-watching”. (A second Ivy Asia is scheduled towards Christmas 2019 on the site of Jamie Oliver’s Barbecoa (RIP) at St Paul’s in London.)

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).
