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.”

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!

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!

Definitely one to go for the 'vibe' first, food second... Pumping beats & a great atmosphere for a night out but I think you can get better Japanese/Peruvian fusion cuisine elsewhere, especially when you consider the expense of the menu here.

The set meal choices are really good, a great way to experience what the chefs can do.
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.
