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.”

Food was great, service was a little slow and music was so loud and pretty dated. Food was standout though so would return

Fantastic food and menu, we decided to get 8 dishes between us and they brought them out gradually and in the perfect order. Barbecue section was our favourite as were the sushi rolls. Tables fairly close together but buzzy atmosphere with live DJ. Will definitely
come back. Only thing was there was no seating in the bar downstairs for drinks so we had to stand the whole time.

Thank you for the food, which was great. The concept is also really fun and the dancers added value to the experience. We may have been better off coming at night for the experience to have been a good fit... for brunch we were intending to chat but the music was so loud that in the end we were looking forward to leaving so that we could hear each other. Whilst the front of house and waiting staff were polite/attentive enough I think this is where the venue really lets itself down, considering that it seems high end and a 13.5% service charge is included in the bill. The food came at wildly different times and at one point starter plates were being cleared away as some were taking a last bite off them. There was a sense of urgency due to the chaos and it felt like we were being rushed due to the time restrictions on the booking, which wasn't our fault. Perhaps if food comes at very different times and this is usual, it could be explained in the waiter's intro? The food was also given to the wrong person every time, which felt unusual and was particularly obvious at Chotto Matte when our vegetarian guest had pork belly put in front of them! The occasion ended with one guest being handed all the bags and coats from the cloakroom in a big pile. Just generally it all felt a bit allover the place and like the staff were very new to hospitality. The food good and venue is cool though - perhaps it was just an off day.

My friend and I went on a Friday evening, having been drawn in by the menu and were not disappointed. I had the octopus, the seabass ceviche and cassava wedges, all of which were delicious. The decor matches the unusual menu and our server was extremely friendly and attentive without making us feel like we were being watched. Would definitely recommend!

Very good restaurant with spot on cocktails, especially "aged old-fashioned" (unfortunately had only availability to have 2 of them and then became sold out), absolutely astonishing flavours of food and amazing mixture of tastes! On the other hand not amazing sitting on the ground floor with very low tables and chairs and music a bit too loud to be able enjoying a conversation with my guest.. overall worth visiting and trying their cuisine!

Good food, ok service. Incredibly loud music for a 7-8pm dining experience and so compared to other dining experiences within the same price bracket not exceptional value for money. Though nothing overtly wrong it did not stand out as a dining experience.

Our recent visit definitely made up for the previous one when the music was so loud we couldn’t ourselves think let alone talk. Almost didn’t book again but so glad we did.

I really enjoyed my evening at Chotto mate, the sushi was delicious. The only negative point is that I had made a reservation and I had to wait more than 40 minutes before I got my table.

I was dissapointed in the service, Chotto matte is always busy however it took a ridiculous amount of time to receive our starters and appetisers and drinks.

I was really dissapointed with the service, our waitress did try her best but overall, it seemed they were too far overstretched.

Management should consider whether they have enough resource to meet their needs

Atmosphere nice and service generally good although we were sat without any explanation of menus etc as tables sat next to us were. Food a bit average compared to similar rival restaurants for the price

Amazing food, really delicious, excellent for both vegetarians and non alike. The cocktails were also exquisite. The vegetarian tasting menu is highly recommended and very generous. The chocolate dessert was heavenly. I went on a saturday night and the music level was LOUD (but really great mid 90s house tunes) and the tables are super close to each other. The turnaround time on tables is strict and adhered to. Unfortunately the bar downstairs is full of saturday night coke snorters, meaning that the subterranean bathrooms absolutely reek and the lack of windows or ventilation does not help the obvious and apparent laxative side effects on getting on the chang. Advice : go midweek.
