Chotto Matte Soho
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.

awesome service and food, had the best time! Cannot wait to go back
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.
Great food...Salvador was a super friendly and provided great service, will definitely visit again
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
Food was exceptional and staff were great. Lovely ambience and perfect for all occasions
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.
Awesome experience. Food is good, service is great, great vibe and decor.
Sat inside as too hot outside - tables sort for social distancing - great service all wearing masks. Good food quickly served. Overall excellent
Exceptional food & incredible service, thank you for a wonderful evening as always!
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.
Love the food in this place. Venue is beautiful and people are fantastic.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We look forward to seeing you again very soon!
Still lively and fun even with social distancing!
Thank you so much!
Love love love this place! It’s my favourite restaurant ever. Been here 3 times and it’s never disappointed. I love the food and the service is brilliant! Great hygiene practices to make you completely comfortable with eating there. You have to go!
Dear Deepa, Thank you so much for your fantastic comments. We are so please to hear that and we can't wait to see you again very soon!
From start to finish our experience was very very good. It was our waiter David who made it into an incredible evening...! We will certainly be requesting him on our table when we visit again...no doubt!!! 👍🏽💥
Thank you so much for your excellent feedback. We will make sure to pass on your comments to David!
Incredible food, the service was excellent and so were the cocktails! Would definitely love to return and try some more dishes
Thank you so much for your fantastic comments, Heidi! See you soon
As always fantastic! Quality has been amazing across the years and staff excellent! The dessert platter is to die for!
Amazing food, service and atmosphere. Highly recommend
Thank you so much!
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!
Great food, staff is lovely very good experience. Definitely recommend
Great food, good service, although was very crowded and loud (especially for lockdown times).
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!
Good place with good food and friendly service.
Disappointed that the menu has changed and our favourite sushi dish is no longer on the menu.
Really yummy food, although it isn't cheap it is worth it! crispy fried rice with tuna tataki is delicious! Cocktails also really good! They are taking the cleaning very seriously and we all felt safe and happy to be there!
Was a good evening. The restaurant was clean and the service efficient. The food was as usual good. Overall a very good experience.
