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.”

Great vibe, great food. I don't think the tables have been separated much for social distancing as it still felt very busy. The waiters etc had face masks and there was anti-bac when you arrive but very hard not to get too close to people. That being said food was fab and vibe great. Would have preferred if our waiter spent more time on us and actually attending to us when asked. We ended up having to call another waiter over a few times. Again perhaps because it was very busy.

Amazing service! Food was delicious and our waiter was always refilling our glasses with tap water - some restaurants make you feel awkward when you want some tap water 🤨

Our waiter really helped us on what to order and told us the best dishes and they were all so yummy! Thank you so much!

Only downfall was that we couldn’t park anywhere near by as all the roads are blocked off from this restaurant

Can’t speak highly enough of Chotto Matte. Every staff member was impeccable and friendly. We chose two different set menus and each dish was incredible. Worth every penny considering we has 18 small dishes between us. Would definitely recommend.

Great surprise to have now tables outside!Service is amazing, only disappointment were the Prawns that instead of a king Prawn were several small ones where the quality of the prawns are not the same.

Having been a regular customer, I was very disappointed by the service received. I had to ask for an ashtray 4 times before I got one, we received the bottle of wine after about half an hour since ordering it. When the food finally came, no one was clearing out empty dishes. Finally, they forgot to place one order so the dish I was looking forward to the most never came. Quite disappointing and will rethink about going back next time.

Amazing restaurant! Second time visiting and didn’t disappoint at all! The food was perfect, was really impressed by the octopus. The waiting staff were really attentive and made my friend’s birthday a day to enjoy! Will definitely come back in foreseeable future.

We have been at Chotto Matte Soho on Friday July 31st. The staff is attentive, precise, caring. My husband has a food intolerance and the waitress made sure several times that everything was fine. The food is special and sought after, but without being excessive. The only flaw, if I really have to find one, is the music too loud that made the conversation difficult and sometimes even hearing the explanation of the dishes by the waitress.
Highly recommed it!

It is rare to find an upmarket restaurant which is great for vegetarians, but Chotto Matte is perfect. Despite three of my party being veggie, we still had so many things on the menu to order, and plenty of new dishes to try next time. The food was swift, the price point was much better than expected, and everything, veggie or non veggie was AMAZING. It’s not every day you’re amazed by veggie food, and you taste something different.
Additionally, this place is great to go to for a casual or fancy night out. I went for my birthday, and it was perfect. The atmosphere was great, and the service was amazing, with friendly and polite waiters regularly checking in on us and cleaning our table.
I would go to this place again and recommend it to anyone. I especially think it is better than Sushi Samba, for veggie and non veggie people alike, as there is much more variety, better value for money, and the food tastes amazing! I can’t rate this restaurant highly enough; I can’t wait to go back!
