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.

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!
Incredible food, the service was excellent and so were the cocktails! Would definitely love to return and try some more dishes
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
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!
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.
Delicious food - ordered a selection of dishes and all of them were perfect.

The staff are fantastic. Even though Remus was out main waiter the whole team was involved and they were all familiar with our orders.
It was a delight to behold, a wonderful way to spend an evening, and the pedestrianisation of Frith Street has produced a vibe like never before

Loved dining here! We've been wanting to go for a while and so glad we did. They had a lot of outdoor tables on the street post lockdown so it felt safe yet the ambience was not affected at all. There was a lively, energetic atmosphere and the staff were attentive and friendly. Handgel placed throughout the restaurant and the toilets were clean. Food wise, we had a great selection of tapas with decent sized portions. Highly recommend the aubergine dish and seabass tempura! Would definitely recommend this place to a friend.

Great food and service. Quite pricey though.
I was over charged on 2 items for 30£ and I only realised later after I left but I believe it was a genuine mistake.
