Peruvian
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.”

Our main was not brought out at the same time so one of us had to wait for 20 min and ended up eating alone. The manager gave us crappy excuses that different stations work at different pace and also we were expected to share which was not explained by the waiter at the beginning. She barely spoke English. But it was not a complicated dish to make. And we were specific about our dietary restriction so we couldn’t share food. After living in New York for 15 years and now in London for a year, this restaurant has delivered the worst experience I have ever had. Food is also below average. Everyone around was so loud. I will never go back or recommend to any of my friends!

Have dined here on several occasions. Excellent evening and fantastic food ! Could have poured the wine in smaller, more civilized measures instead of tipping quarter of a bottle into each glass (6 of us) each time the waitress topped them up....

Good food and atmosphere. Everything ordered (sushi, cerviche, lamb chops, salad, spicy salmon) was great. Staff were professional, however one particular member of staff was very persistent in reminding us that we only have a 2 hour time slot. He reminded us a few times during the meal by coming up to one of us and whispering in our ears. I was hoping for a more laid back dining experience as we were there for a friend's birthday and didn't want to feel rushed.

Bento boxes were tasty and good value but the service was absolutely atrocious. We had to ask for our drinks 4 times and nobody seemed to have a clue what was going on. It was a real let down and definitely impacted on our meal, which was otherwise nice.

We had a really good night, love the vibe in this restaurant. Second time visiting the restaurant, but was not impressed by the food this time. We was celebrating a birthday -I wrote a note to say on the booking requests, and as promised, they did create a beautiful desert platter saying happy birthday which was very nice. Thank you!!

We wanted to have something different before the theatre and Chotto Matte delivered in spades!!! Everything about it was superb. We had ceviche and Nikkei followed by small steak slices, cassava fries and then an amazing passion fruit brûlée and hot salted caramel chocolate melting sponge (all gluten free). But the best thing for me was the attention to detail on gluten free options. I had a very decent GF menu and the manager came and discussed my allergy with me. You don’t get that too often!!! I can highly recommended this restaurant and it won’t be too long before we go back again.

The food was very tasty but quite small for the price. Service was nothing write home about. The staff who came to torch our Aburi sushi at the table didn’t seem to care much about the food.

Outstanding food, however we were put next to the open bifold doors adjacent from a table of chain smokers who were 12 inches from us 'outside' (there's no difference when the glass doors are wide open. This meant we could not taste the food or even breathe at times. Staff refused to move us as they said they were full, but many tables remained free further inside the restaurant. Most staff were inattentive and grumpy not just with us but with eachother- poor team morale I fear. Overall a real shame.

The welcoming and guidance to the table was not very welcoming. When asked if we could change to another table we got a very abrupt and kurt response. Not a great welcoming which spoilt the initial impression given the lovely decor.

Our waitress however was friendly and the service level was good.

My 1st choice of drink was not available.

We asked to use the charging facility and then 30 mins later when asked for the phone back we realized it was never charged!

The food however was amazing and the cocktails were good! The dishes are unique and tasty. Lovely flavors and preparation + presentation!
