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.”

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

There are far too many tables stuffed together upstairs. The servers were excellent but kept on knocking into us because of the limited space. If you took a couple of tables out, the ambiance would improve immeasurably. Good sushi but both of the sakes we had were bland. ***

This was my second visit and it was just as perfect as the first time, years ago. The food is made fresh in front of your eyes, and tastes like you’ve transported to Peru/japan simultaneously. The waiting staff are extremely attentive and seem happy to serve you, not always the case so that stuck out too.

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.

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...

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
