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 really nice as well as the atmosphere. Unfortunately we had a couple of lack with the service that’s why we decide to remove the service charge from the total bill.
I’m sorry but as I’m working in the hospitality I can’t admit to step up and grab/serve my wine when the ice bucket is placed far away from my table more then once during a Monday lunch where there was just another table seated in the room.

Although most of the food was very good, the service really was not up to scratch . the dishes were quite small and came separately with long delays between each one during which there was not much service at all. It was difficult even to get our bill at the end of the meal. The people sitting next to us were extremely frustrated as they had the same issue with service and their wine being refilled as it was not left at their table but rather behind the bar.

Sat downstairs and although nice, music was so loud we couldn’t hear eachother speak across the table. We also didn’t get seated until 9:50pm even though our booking was at 9pm which meant eating very late.

Great service for birthday. Was well treated and sparkler on. A cake etc. Was very nice touch.
However they seemed short staffed so had to keep asking for wine to be topped up. To get the desert menus and for the bill at the end. So just wasn’t as slick as I would have hoped for that price of menu.
Food was great and very tasty. Not a bad dish from all that we chose.

This was our 2nd visit. We really enjoyed the food the previous time and decided to return for my wife's birthday. We were a party of 4 and ordered the £60/head 8 course tasting menu.

We arrived for an early dinner. Half an hour went past before realising that all the tables that arrived after us had been served and we had not; not great especially given the restaurant publicises 2 hour table time slots. Eventually I had to go and find some staff to serve us.

Our son eats fish but not meat so the waiter suggested at the start that his 2 meat courses be swapped by the chef with fish and vegetable alternatives. Great, except he was served the same vegetable tempura dish twice. Whilst he enjoyed the 6 pieces of tempura vegatable as the first meat-alternative course, at £60/head we felt the restaurant should have served him a different dish on the second course. It was after all a tasting menu! So we asked the waiter if the second one could be replaced with something else. We were later greeted with a somewhat grumpy and unapologetic manager serving an alternative dish ("I gather you're not into vegetables", his sole remark). I really don't think he understood the issue; he didn't seem to want to hang around to hear first hand why we had asked for an alternative but we were nevertheless grateful the dish had been changed.

The meal ended much as it had started with another long wait, this time for the desert. When it arrived it was accompanied by a sparkling candle for my wife's birthday; a nice touch. The only trouble was that nobody had checked that my wife was actually at the table when the sparkling desert in all it's glory was brought out! No harm done; a second candle-lit performance was arranged once my wife had returned and we all laughed it off.

Overall, we did enjoy the food at Chotto Matte and would say it is definitely worth trying for its food. As for us, I think we'll be trying out one of the other alternatives for Japansese/Peruvian food next time.

Chotto Matte litterally never disappoints. My girlfriend and I went again on the 31st of December for dinner and it was also my birthday, the food was amazing especially the Sashimi, the service was truly good, very friendly and helpful waiter. Also, they surprised me with some Mochi ice -cream and a nice candle at the end for my Birthday, it was delicious. Will always recommend Chotto Matte.

Outstanding food, service and atmosphere. Exceeded expectations. Fish dishes were fresh, delicious and melted in your mouth. Quick service for pre-theater. The decor was as comfortable and as good as the food! Genuinely,a 5 star restaurant. We live near Manhattan, New York USA and are regularly exposed to great restaurants. Chatto Matte would be at the top of our list there or anywhere.

This was our first visit but certainly not the last. The brunch tasting menu was very well judged in terms of flavours and portion size - every dish had its individual appeal and we polished the lot. I generally find puddings a bit too sweet for me, but, to my husband's disappointment (he has a sweet tooth) I finished both desserts so his help was not required on this occasion. Thank you and we are looking forward to our next visit in February.

The service was pretty bad, we had to ask for the bill 4 times and it took them more than 25 minutes. Waiters weren’t ready to serve us anything. The worst service I’ve ever had in London. It’s a pity since food is really good. It’s my boyfriend’s birthday, and I put in the reservation and also told the waiter, he gave a birthday cake to a person on a table next to ours but didn’t give us anything.

Really interesting food. Small plates to share. Nice selection of crafted cocktails. Service was a bit slow and since they want you off your table in 2 hours that was surprising. Bathrooms were not well attended. Loved the decor and watching the kitchen — all 4 of them — make
up the visually interesting dishes. I’d go again. Would not kill myself to go back. It is go again.

Our young French waiter was outstanding, personable and you can perceive his passion for the hospitality industry. He made sure that our experience was fantastic. Upon exiting the premises and sharing our excellent experience with the front desk personnel, we learned that he is new to the restaurant which impressed us even more considering his menu knowledge. We loved the restaurant, its concept and especially the great service.

Visited this place a couple of times before. Figured the first time may have been a one off great experience but each time thankfully have not been left disappointed. The menu is one of those I would personally look at and maybe be a little put off by the sound of everything but the tasting menus give a great choice and experience. Every single dish truly tastes awesome. The flavour, even for vegetarian options is delicious; particularly the spinach truffle salad and nasu miso. Especially love the tuna classic tostadita, the flavour is exceptionally good. Not a huge fan of meat but even the meat options have so much flavour, as do the fish. Presentation of food is excellent. Service is pretty good. Atmosphere is great (seems more an evening vibe, with cocktails and bar area, although didn't seem to hear any music). Even took my parents here one night and they looked a little dismayed at the menu... I ordered two of the tasting menus and they were quick to easily agree the food was excellent, even dessert. All in all it's a favourite. The only downside would be the bathroom (at least on the first floor), third visit and yet again tissue everywhere and doesn't look or feel clean, lack of bathroom hygiene isn't very nice, it needs a revamp and/or frequent cleaning. Some latin american music would also be a great addition. Look forward to visiting again.
