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.”

We went to Chotto Matte as I wanted to propose to my girlfriend. I had written to the restaurant and also mentioned it to them when they called to confirm my reservation. The ambience was good, food excellent, but as I worked up my courage to get down on one knee, one of the service managers came up to me and told me that we would need to leave the table as there was another booking on the same table. Obviously I couldn't say anything in front of my girlfriend - so I just had to nod and say ok and ask for the bill. I was quite disappointed by this.

Great food and service, would recommend if you’re okay to splurge a bit. Nice for a date or a night out with friends and the restaurant decor is beautiful. Food was nice and service was attentive but not annoying.

Unfortunately we got stuck on the tube and then walked the wrong way so we only had 45 mins to enjoy our meal pre the theatre! Will need to come back again when we have not other commitments
The vegetarian Bento box with the Proscceo was incredible more than enough and the chocolate desert was was fab. Pleny of food for a very good price.
Look forward to sampling many other things on the menu when we next return

Great experience, had a lot of fun.

We had the pre theatre Bento box, which was great value. Food was lovely, but a bit heavy handed with the yuzu and the broccoli and rice an unnecessary edition. That being said i'm not using a fan of pork belly, but this was delicious.

Waiting staff are incredibly friendly, if you're in the area, would definitely recommend popping in

Great place for a birthday celebration. The food was inventive and very tasty, the vibe was trendy but not painfully so. We had a great night. It is expensive and the portions are small (you are supposed to order lots of plates) but kind of standard for that kind of restaurant.

Had read great things about this restaurant however sadly expectations were not met. Food was average but prices absolutely do not reflect this. £35 for a very sad sashimi platter, an amount we would not have resented paying had the amount and quality of the fish been of a high standard. £7.50 for a single hand roll that was completely unseasoned, we have had better sushi at high street chains. Also, cooked prawns with the Sashimi platter seemed a bizarre addition. Service was adequate but for the cost of this meal we would have expected more attentive staff. Overall, very disappointing.

If you're intrigued by the idea of Japanese-Peruvian fusion cuisine, this is the place for you. Ceviche was fantastic and also enjoyed the tostadito and aburi sushi with pisco sours.

Too overpriced!!! We ordered the £50 each sharing menu. The portions were really small, like 1 small plate between 2 people and there was 7 of those. The octopus was the best in the menu whereas calamari had too much batter in it, could hardly taste the squid in it. Spring rolls were very oily. The chicken had too much fat but tasted good.

The food was excellent as always but it was a shame that tables are filled up right next to each other rather than spread out across the restaurant. We had two loud parties either side of us and the tables are very close together.

It was my fourth time at this restaurant, first on a Sunday afternoon: the tasting menu was delicious but the portions seemed smaller than the ones served on dinning service, we fixed it by ordering extra food. The waiting for the drinks was way too long, but when it finally arrived it was delicious.
Again seemed the whole service on Sundays is more casual and less efficient, but we were not in a hurry and overall we were both very happy and satisfied.

Our major issues were the strong perfume smell which is pumped around the whole building, and the fact that the tables are just too close together for the price they're charging. Food was ok but not of the level of the pricing. Service was ok but it felt like they were a few staff members short. Cocktails were good and the general atmosphere is fun.

Chotto Matte was our favourite restaurant in London for a long time, this visit was a train wreck!
Service was appalling, wine was not bought to the table, food was wrong, some dishes never appeared, the bill was for the wrong table and just the whole experience was a shambles.
