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 food was superb and good value for money - we had the pre-theatre set menu. However when we were being seated, the waitress was rude and tried to make us squeeze in a seat which we were unable to pull out to sit in, due to another customer sitting behind. She proceeded to try and force the chair to fit, and we had to ask to sit elsewhere.

Very good food, but service was extremely slow. Also, waiter was very reluctant to serve my wife’s poke with the sauce on the side (she is very sensitive to overly seasoned food). She insisted, he asked the kitchen and it was fine at the end, but not the level of service one would expect.

We went on a few recommendations online thinking this would be a great meal. We did not even stay for the food. My husband ordered a bourbon that was almost $30 and was barely even visible in the glass it was such a small pour. I ordered a cosmopolitan that tasted like cherry Tylenol. It was very loud and very hot as well as cramped upstairs. We decided to leave before eating.

Had an amazing time for my wife's birthday. The staff were really kind and friendly. Never felt like they were there but they always cleared plates and refilled glasses as soon as they needed to be. The food was incredible. We had a set menu which was more than enough food for the both of us. The only bad point is the chairs and tables are too low to sit at to eat a meal on. Very comfy but are a funny angle. (but this is not a reason to not go). We will defiantly be returning.

Cuisine délicieuse. Tous les plats sont réussis. Nous avons pris les menus dégustations et tout était excellent.
Le seul bémol la musique à fond dans le restaurant. Nous avons demandé au manager deux fois de baisser car on ne s’entendait littéralement plus du tout. Il a été adorable et a un peu baissé le volume. Mais pour un repas pour discuter ça reste compliqué....

We sat downstairs which became very busy and noisy with people popping in after work. We were to the eork station so stuff were constantly at our elbow. Felt cramped and uncomfortable. We chose the sharing menu which was well cooked and presented but at 50 pounds a head represented poor value for money. I left feeling hungry and light of pocket! Ten for a glass of Proseco seemed steep but perhaps I'm just not uses to central London prices!!

Restaurant is gorgeous and the food is delicious. Service however wasn’t great and staff didn’t understand a lot of our requests. Also had to ask numerous times for my friends birthday dessert to come only to be snapped at by a waitress. And my chair was knocked every single time a waiter went past, never an apology.

We have dined at all the top Japanese restaurants however Chotto Matte is one of the best we have dined at!

The peruvian and Japanese fusion was excellent – it was innovative and delicious.

We went for the most expensive taster menu and thought it was good value for money.

I will be back!

All good with the exception of the wine list. Selected 3 and none were available. Turned out, that out of about 20 whites in the list only 6 were available! Apparently updating their list but this isn't good management.
Other than that the food is predictable good and the service helpful and interested.

Service was awful! Really disappointed to even have to be writing a review, however, our waiter was inattentive, rude, and slow! I had to waive at him to get his attention or ask for our waiter multiple times. Our food came at awkward times (he did not inform us that food would se served as it comes) and clearly forgot about our last two dishes and put the order in late (I saw him walk over to the area and ask). After the sushi came 45 min late I told him to cancel it and he argued that it’s been ordered and would not. Later he came back and said he took it off the bill, but it was still there. I was entertaining business clients so it was a difficult situation to argue and also uncomfortable for them to have such a poor experience.

The ambience, music and food were outstanding. Very cool vibe ands food to match

However the meal took nearly 3 hours as the service was incredibly slow. At one point I had to threaten to leave if the next course didn't come as we'd waited nearly 40 mins.
