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.”

È già la seconda volta che ceno da Chotto Matte e devo ammettere che non delude mai.
Ottime le pietanze ed eccellente servizio ne fanno un MUST a SOHO. Soprattutto dopo una giornata di shopping.
Consiglio il Primo Piano... più COOL!

good food, a bit pricey. But its sushi in London therefore it is expected. Superb service atmosphare great as well. THE only thing I wish they did was to take our coats. Im paying over 100 pounds for a dinner, taking my coat would be a nice luxury touch

Restaurant has a great vibe. Food was nice but fillet steak was very chewy. Some dishes did take a long time to come out - which we were pre-warned by our server may happen due to the restaurant being busy. This meant we were longer than the allocated time slot but were rushed to leave the table before we had even finished our drinks - not what we expected when it was the kitchens fault for running late!

Went for a birthday dinner on Saturday night. Service good and food ok but expensive for the quality. We were seated downstairs and whilst it was good to have a buzz, the music was just too loud for us to have a normal conversation. I wonder if upstairs is quieter? Should have asked. My bad.

In my mind Chotto Matte has kind of lost its lustre by not really having changed its menu in the past year. The inside is still pretty, the food is good, the service is still great, but it does not offer anything new that it didn't two years ago.

Incredible food !!! We let the waiter order for our group because there were 7 of us, and he did such a good job. Everything was delicious, and we had a nice variety. Drinks were very slow and we had to keep chasing for them (only one barman that night..)

There was a slight mixup of table reservation but they were able to resolve this quickly. We had a pre-theatre menu which was very good at a reasonable price. As a Japanese native, I saw other people’s food from a la carte and while it looked good, the price is way too much for what it should be. Atmosphere is pleasant enough, but nothing special and tap in the toilet sink wasn’t working. Room for more improvement but otherwise good.

Was surprised at how buzzy the restaurant was on Sunday night- We went for my daughters birthday and were not disappointed - The service dipped a little later in the meal as the restaurant got busier but would definitely go again- WE loved the sea bass but felt the portion was a little small for the price

My second time here, tried the sharing menu II this time. Fantastic! Calamari was perfectly fried and not rubbery. All the sashimi was melt in your mouth as was the black bass. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back next visit!

Trendy place in soho with excellent food but very noisy so it is difficult to have a conversation with other People at the table. Background music very loud so my suggestion would be to significantly lower the volume.

Otherwise great food!

Everything was exceptional except the service. It took 25 minutes to get a waiter and a second bottle of water. It is such a shame - the food is outstanding, the ambience is great and it is sensibly priced considering the location and the menu. But the really poor service took some of the shine off.

A shame - it could have been great. But sadly not quite.

The whole experience was ruined by rude bounder like managers. It took one hour for any waiting staff to serve us (at which point one of our table had to actually find someone to take a drinks order). We were then, very rudely informed that we hadn't left ourselves enough time to order and eat our meal without being rushed and that we would not be able to order a second bottle of wine as there wasn't enough time left on our table slot - this is despite the fact that at this point in time we were yet to be served our main courses.

We were harassed from then until the end of the meal (when we were basically escorted from our table) being consistently reminded every time someone brought us something that we were on a ticking clock to vacate our table. Overall we found the managers aggresive, rude, unfriendly, and intimidating . When leaving, it was also apparent they were taking walk-ins and in doing so and over-booking, completely ruined our evening. It is common place in London for 2 hour time slots, but if you're not going to serve tables for an hour sticking to this policy is unreasonable. There is also a nice way that staff can inform you of these things if required - there was nothing nice about the way in which this was handled. Will not be returning.
