Lebanese singer Myriam Fares, Indian actor Salman Khan and comedian Wonho Chung round off this diverse roster of patrons to the Novikov brand. The many achievements that have been made over this time are recognized and welcomed by Arkady Novikov and partners the Bulldozer Group, both known as F&B trailblazers in their fields.

Novikov’s charm lies in its experienced team, led by Executive Chef Shayne McNeill, attracting the cream of UAE culinary talent. Showcasing a Pan-Asian menu carefully curated for the local audience and developed in keeping with the attention to detail and exquisite quality for which the Novikov family is renowned.
