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.

An amazing time with a great atmosphere
Thank you so much!
The food was good but was very loud and pretty overpriced, particularly the wine - couldn't get a bottle for under £50!
Overall it was ok but not sure I'd be back with some many other options in London
One of my favourite restaurants in London. Amazing food, cool atmosphere and awesome interiors. What more could you ask for?
Great food, nice cocktails, great atmosphere. Went for a birthday celebration and was perfect
The service was awful all round. The food took very long to come and was not up to its usual standard when it finally arrived. It was cold.
When we highlighted this to 1 of the waiters there was no improvement in the service.
I am extremely disappointed.
Been here several times and for a Friday the restaurant wasn’t as busy as it Usually is because we had a late reservation around 22:30. But this time around food service was so slow and sluggish. Multiple orders of the same thing were being brought by different people and there was no real organization to te service. Food still came out hot and tasty but the service was quite poor ok the occasion.
I (50 something) am clearly not the target customer for this restaurant but we went with our two daughters so I could just about cope with the low light and the high music. Our vegan was very well looked after and they were very happy to allow us all to have different tasting menus. The service was outstanding and the food came very fast (which was much appreciated after the theatre). The food is really good and the January deal offered really good value. I would recommend for a very lively atmosphere and a fun night out. Slight downer was that one daughter got locked in the loo and because of loud music, took a while for anyone to hear her and then rescue her. Still a couple of pisco sours later we got over that trauma, and went on to have a fun evening.

I was a fan of the restaurant, but this time it has let me down tremendously, and I took an important guest for a business dinner. Staff were pushy for us to order, not allowing us to have a conversation - as you do when you go to a business dinner - the waiter did not know the menu and was not quick in recommending what we were asking for, the time in between the sharing dishes was rather long... I'm afraid I can no longer recommend the place.
Marvellous afternoon lunch. It was more than perfect. Relaxed atmosphere, stunning food, beautifully arrayed in bento boxes and the décor and ambience was superb! Cannot wait to go here again!

We had a nice evening, staff was friendly and didn’t have to wait too long for our dishes. However, we felt the concept of the dishes and Nikkei cuisine were there but not yet fully executed in palette or portioning. Also not all menu items were available, disappointing especially since were looking forward to those when we browsed the menu before booking.
Fave of the night was the seabass ceviche.
The salmon avocado maki is to die for, it is a truly unforgettable taste sensation. If you like your sushi you'll love this place...
Thank you so much, Phil! We are so pleased you enjoyed your meal at Chotto Matte. We hope to see you again very soon for some more of that Maki. Thank you, Team Chotto Matte
Delicious food but disappointed to be sat downstairs in the bar where it was very noisy and dark
Food was amazing. Ordered eight different dishes and they were all incredibly tasty and cooked to perfection.
Service was friendly and attentive.
Thank you so much for your excellent comments. We look forward to seeing you again very soon.
The waiter spilled our bottle of champagne on the floor. The bottle had already been marked up by 450%. I do not blame the waiter himself, although spilling champagne is amateur. They offered us a free cocktail to compensate, but seriously.
W arrived a bit early, and they told us in an offhand way to go to the bar, and come back to reception at the appointed time. No service at all.
Nearly all the dishes were coated in a goopy mayonnaise-like substance. There was a thumping bass throughout the meal.
We have been to some serious restaurants in London and elsewhere, and this was one of the worst. Never again!
This place will go bust in two years.
Great place, reminded me of the Sanderson. I went on a 50% off food deal, so fantastic value, though it would be pricey otherwise. The Tina tostadita was wonderful, the octopus tiny and expensive, my partner thought the pork belly amazing too, an obsession with sauce on everything which is perhaps a personal taste, but padrón peppers plain would have been my preference.. Cocktails goid
Dear Space, Thank you so much for your fantastic comments. We look forward to seeing you again very soon. Thank you, Team Chotto Matte
Great meals, great ambiance. A littele bit too much noisy. It was hard having a conversation !
Thank you, Sophie!
Love this place, great food, service and we had the 50% off offer currently happening so great value!
Dear Tappiah01, Thank you so much for your excellent feedback. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your experience and we look forward to seeing you again very soon. Thank you, Team Chotto Matte
Seventh or eighth visit and still as good as the other times. Food is excellent, can’t recommend highly enough. See you soon
Dear Lodgie73, Thank you so much for your fantastic comments. We are so happy that you enjoy Chotto Matte so much and we look forward to seeing you again very soon. Thank you, Team Chotto Matte
Really lovely lunch. Happened to have a 50% off voucher so was even better. The Nikkei Sashimi is divine and the sushi/sashimi is always very good here.
Staff are nice and professional.
My only negative is that their seating can be really uncomfortable. On the sofa style seating, the cushion keeps coming off the base so you end up sliding off unless you sit completely still all the time. The cushion itself is also quite thin so you can feel the base underneath. Better seats needed.
Dear NaoLondon, Thank you so much for your feedback. We will make sure to pass on your comments to our team. We hope to see you again very soon for some more Nikkei Sashimi. Thank you, Team Chotto Matte
This is the fourth time I've been to Chotto Matte.
Service was once again brilliant. However......
The first 2 times the food has been amazing.
However, the last time I came (back in June 2019) and this time, the food has not been brilliant and to be honest it was very dissatisfying 1) because of the price of the items 2) both times were special occasions.
They turned the music up at one point which made it way too loud, but they turned it down slightly when we asked. Food is amazing and had a 50% off voucher so it was unbelievable value.
Dear Claudio, Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We look forward to seeing you again very soon. Best regards, Team Chotto Matte
Great evening with the family for a special birthday. Very attentive service and tasty food. The prices are a bit high though.
Dear hannahb, Thank you so much for your feedback. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your meal and we will make sure to pass on your comments to the team. We look forward to seeing you again very soon. Thank you, Team Chotto Matte
