Nico Modad original from Argentina, ex Head Chef at Brindisa, is opening the doors of what he has always dreamed about. A traditional Argentinean restaurant in SE1.

Why “Chimis”? Well, it’s Argie, spicy, saucy, juicy and tasty!

He will offer a great variety of dishes including fish and fresh pasta with a focus on charcoal grilled Argentine meats! followed by a casual service, a cosy atmosphere and great drinks to wash it all.

See you soon! All welcome!

Great food, amazing service and dining experience.
It is a bit pricy though, and portions could be a little bit bigger, other than that, great experience!

If you want an authentic Argentinian experience, this is the place to go. You can have a great rib-eye or a Milanesa Napolitana like back home. Don't miss the panqueque with dulce de leche!
Nicolas greeted us and the service was really good. We'll be back!

It’s my 4th or 5th time that I’ve been to Chimis! Wow!! You guys don’t cease to surprise me!! Me and my guests were amazed by such excellent food, amazingly cooked (just how an Argentinian parillla /asado/ chrrasco/ bbq should be!!). I will for sure go again and again! Nico you are a crack on the parilla!!

Amazing food, great environment and very friendly hosts. Really good mix of Argentine grill and chef signature dishes not commonly found in grill only restaurants. Also, good wine selection. Leave some room for desserts, they are amazing, we loved the Dulce de leche Crepe and the Alfajor helado (Iced cookie with dulce de leche). We highly recommend Chimichurris.

Friendly, informal Argentinian restaurant with a neighbourhood feel. I had come from the other side of London to eat here with an old pal - and I'd come again. The pulpo (octopus) was splendid, as were the short ribs. Ironically, no chimichurri sauce was on offer with our meat or other condiments - perhaps this was an oversight. Interesting looking wine list I'd like to explore further. Very conveniently located near the tube.

We arrived there quite early and the restaurant was empty. But gradually it was fully occupied. The staff were super friendly and the food was simply amazing. We had three different kinds of wine from Argentina and they were all very tasty.

Amazing food and even better service. Steaks and pork were grilled to perfection; salt crusted exterior was flavorful and the inner meat juicy and tender. The servers are so kind, attentive, and passionate about the food. One of the few places I will revisit in London.

Had a really nice time here and friends agreed. The service was great and the steaks and accompaniments were delicious. I was a little worried when the waiter didn't ask how we liked the steaks but they came out nicely medium rare. Cozy atmosphere. Some more chimichurri sauce would have been good though, as one little dipper between 4 is never enough.
