Chotto Matte brings together the best of Japanese and Peruvian cultures serving high-quality Nikkei cuisine and colourful cocktails.

What is Nikkei?
Years ago Japanese immigrants travelled to Peru for work and could not find their authentic ingredients; to overcome this they used local ingredients to substitute. Nikkei was born.

What is Chotto Matte
It is the experience.
Our professional staff know every ingredient on all dishes and how to best serve you the customer. Added to which it is the Chotto Matte way that no GM no MSG, no artificial flavors are used. Product quality is key, it is our mission to provide the best experience possible.

“Let the waiter do it for you. They will work around your likes and allergies to craft the best experience possible just for you.”

The place was really cool, I’ve been always attracted to try something different especially a mix cuisine like that. The food was really fresh and really good!!! But the portions of food very poor compare to the prices, so I would recommend to eat something before to go. This it happened also because I didn’t know what to order the service was distracted to look after big tables and no one explained to us how the menu works or recommend specialities of the house. We had different servers so it Was really difficult to talk with someone...overall it’s a really nice place for drinks and casual occasions.

Food was disgusting and we sent back most of our plates since none of us (we were 6) liked the dishes. The management was rude and the runners were constantly pushing on our shares as they were running around. We left before receiving of our order and went to grab a bite somewhere else. The music was very loud and we couldn’t talk or hear each other. The waitresses barely speak English. The crowd was cheap. To avoid at all cost.

Not cheap but the food was special. Presentation excellent, and flavours on point. Service was efficient, but our waiter was a bit unfriendly and somewhat aggressive in his attempts to oversell. Rest of the staff seemed very nice. Overall a very good experience.

Went for a Saturday brunch with my husband this weekend. Food was amazing, especially loved the beef. I'm not a massive fan of the raw fish on nigiri, but i couldnt get enough of this as it was so fresh! The passionfruit creme brulee for dessert was to die for too. Got a cocktail each and a bottle of wine to share, well worth the money we paid, and both left really full. Cool toilets too. Will defo be back!

We were greeted and shown to the restaurant a well situated table and offer of drinks was made. We were on a tight schedule but the pretheatre menu was huge and with a glass of Prosecco a wonderful choice. Fresh and varying flavours abound and tip top service. Thanks and will be returning.

Food was delicious! As a first time I ordered the bento box which has a little bit of every recommended dish in the restaurant (see picture).
Strong Japanese taste with herbs and spices - I liked it a lot!

I really liked the food, the service and the ambiance. However, it is quite expensive and I am not sure if the price / quality is sufficient for me. Happy I tried it, but will likely not go again.

The sushi was incredible, the other dishes were good, but not as impressive in flavour profile as the sushi. The service was great, but they missed/forgot one dish, which was actually not a bad thing at all as we were so full from everything else we'd ordered!

What’s not to like??!! Great food, great cocktails and amazing atmosphere. We would go back again just for the Tuna Tartare and the Beef teriyaki.
The music was also very good. I don’t seem to recall another place in london where they do the kind of music that was playing in Chotto Matte. Or do I need to get out more?
