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.”

The restaurant is combined with their bar, so it is very loud Inside, very difficult to have a normal conversation. I Don't recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a quiet evening.
The food was very good, can't find anything negative to say about the food. It is tapas inspired, so they have sharing platters. The service was okay, not outstanding. They had to re-issue the bill and couldn't find my coat after dinner, but otherwise, all was good.

Everything was fantastic - service, food, atmosphere. Great experience! A bit pricey, but have definitely paid more for a worse experience!

The ambiance is promising like a big party, great music, the cocktails were really nice but that’s that - the service was terrible - hectic and rude, We took the large tasting menu - most of the dishes were ok at best, and came out without any culinary logic, desserts were old fashioned and not very professional...

Good food but poor service. One of the dishes never came but was it to the bill twice.

This is essentially a bar-restaurant. The food is very good even though portions are small. Nice place to have dinner if you are going out. Not appropriate for families in my view.

The food was divine with the Peruvian flavours elevating all the Japanese food. At 9pm it got so loud in the restaurant area that we couldn’t hear each other speak, that was the only thing stopping me from giving it 5 stars

Good food and service, although the music was a little too loud for our group (family dinner with parents). We went pre-theatre on a Saturday night, and even at that time it felt a bit like a nightclub and it was hard to hear each other across the table! The food was very tasty but quite expensive for what we received - £40pp for a vegetarian sharing menu (meat/fish more expensive) consisting mainly of vegetables - no tofu or other vegetarian proteins. A cool place for dinner with friends or date night and we’d go back again, just probably not with our parents!

Went for my birthday with 7 friends, took an hr (after 3-4 times chase) to take our order (that’s drinks too), and food was brought out in different times, and still charged 13.5% service....

Myself and my 4 colleagues had a booking for early evening, but we were short on time and needed to catch an earlier train. I rang up an hour before our booking, to cancel (rather then a 'no show'!!!) and I was told that there is a charge, of £20 per head ... so we move our booking an hour earlier to avoid an unnecessary £100 to buy a drink, and we find the restaurant nearly empty. Putting your card details down when making a booking is absolutely reasonable, and to charge people when they don't show up, is also reasonable. But if people have to cancel their table, and ring you to tell you, they should not be charged!!!

The food, service and ambience were all pretty good to be honest, it was just massively overpriced for what it is, IMHO. Especially the wine list. Written as someone who goes to a lot of places across London

The food was good, I wouldn't say amazing. Our waitress was so lovely and knowledgeable on the menu.

The host was beyond rude however and I think for an up market restaurant the toilets were shocking, they were among the worst in London I've ever been.
