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 food was exquisite, the cocktails and sake shots were incredible and topped off with a superb atmosphere. You must go and try the Pulpo, the Pollo Picante, the Lamb Chops, BBQ Chicken Karaage (the dipping sauce is unbelievable), and the magical ball for dessert was mouthwatering!! Loved the meal and it is great for a date, just dinner or a group setting. Highly recommend this place

While the food was absolutely stunning I wish I could say the same about the service. We attended the brunch and arrived late, our booking was not held until we arrived we did not get the full 90 mins of brunch (we did call ahead to let them know). Our food arrived to the table at all different times, not normally and issue with sushi however we picked mains and sides and these didn’t come out together. One of our mains arrived after our bottomless had ended. We had to chase the servers for top ups on drinks.

The staff were amazingly attentive at first but after the first hour I was actively ignored with staff continually Gesturing/saying they would come right back. They didn’t and I found that really poor!

We frequently visit chottomate so that in itself explains how great the place is, constantly new dishes are added to the menu, waiters that know exactly what they are serving, buzzy atmosphere, top 5 favourite restaurants in London!

Nice food on the brunch but just not enough of it, very small portions.
We paid for the bottomless champagne and cocktails package but service was slow, so we don't feel we really got our moneys worth. Not enough staff to keep your glass topped up! Wouldn't recommend

Food and service were extremely excellent. Cocktails as also innovative and tasty! They do play very loud music to inform diners that prefer a quieter ambience! Will definitely be visiting again.

Overhyped and overpriced. Food was ok, lots of sauces to cover the actual taste of the dishes. Super fast service - almost feels like they want to rush you out of the restaurant, making the dining experience not very enjoyable. Definitely not worth the fame!

Wide ranging menu that is expensive but doesn't feel overtly overpriced for Central London. Atmosphere is very loud and buzzing which made it difficult to have a good conversation after a while. Not recommended on those nervous about close proximity to others as social distancing is very limited.
