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.”

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.

Food was amazing. Ordered eight different dishes and they were all incredibly tasty and cooked to perfection.

Service was friendly and attentive.

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

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.

I’ve dined at chotto matte twice before and really enjoyed their Sunday brunch menu however this time I tried at the harajuku brunch menu. However, it was really disappointing.

The food was not as great as their downstairs menu, the drinks came really slow, 20 minutes and had to tell the waiter twice. For a bottomless brunch were they intending to slow the drinks down?

The bill came out wrong twice, they tried to charge us for a dessert which was included in the brunch menu.

Really let down my this experience and won’t be dining there again. Which is a shame...

Really great meal, have been Wanting to come for a long time. Only down side was the cocktail.
Had ordered a clover club and was made very poorly.
Little disappointing they had run out of two types of fatty tuna also.
Other than that a good meal
