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.”

Service was not good. It was our first time there and the explanation about the portion sizes and how we should order wasn’t clear -we had to ask our server twice for additional explanations. They forgot some of the dishes we ordered and forgot to take them out of the bill, even though we expressly asked them to do this. We ordered two bottles of wine and a cocktail and they charged us for the wrong cocktail. These were all minor mistakes when considered individually, but taken as a whole we felt like we needed to double-check everything once they brought our bill. Place did not live up the expectations.

Food was fine but it was impossible to talk as the music volume was way too high and people standing up and shouting everywhere around the table. If you go on Google, Instagram or on the Chotto Matte website it is impossible to guess that it is "this kind" of restaurant, and as we just wanted a good quality food restaurant for a couple's dinner we were quite shocked by the noisy sweaty ambiance that we discovered in this restaurant.

Food is great, but because there was a private bar party to our right, the music was cranked up, so rather annoying having to shout all evening. Service was also slow at times.

The service was good but I was surprised as I couldn't get a table on the second floor although I've made my reservation 15 days ago,

Aylin contributed to our experience that happened to be the most memorable service ever. Delicious food and lovely happening atmosphere considering it was Sunday evening and many places we stopped for cocktails at prior to our dinner lacked life. We shall be back!

The food is outstanding, everything from cold to hot dishes. The decor is cool and trendy, however get ready for lots of noise!
Service is a bit distracted but I guess that comes from the volumes they're dealing with. Would definitely go back!

Was my second time here - not as good as the first. A bit too loud to hold a conversation, food came too quickly (we had the sharing menu) and we were overcharged for the wine (which was a mistake on their part and was completely resolved). Still great food though.

Service was outstanding except for the woman who asked us to leave at the end because she needed the table back (the way she was approached us was not acceptable - practically shooed us out, not impressed.)

Noise level could be slightly quieter without taking away from the energetic ambiance.

The food was amazing and the ambiance was really nice and perfect for Saturday night! However, the service was a bit messy and the waiters were really stressed and just gave us the wrong order a couple of times

Food was very good. while our waitress was good, the restaurant's ability to cater for allergies on the set menu was rather unhelpful, even when we spoke to the floor manager. Quiet a few stag and hen groups early evening and was initially noisy but got better later as the groups left. The Coat check and front desk needs some review - long queues with 4 or 5 staff chatting - chaotic and not very clear who was incharge. Shame as the food was quite nice. Cocktails were okay.

The food was great , a little on the pricey side but what you expect in a nice sushi restaurant! Beautifully presented and lots of options.

The service however I found poor. The staff were rushing us, they were rude and they lost multiple items in the cloakroom. While they found most one umbrella was lost for good with little apology or understanding and a fairly rude response from the staff.

Toilets facilities also had a funky drain smell which ruined the experience a bit!

Overall I enjoyed it but there were a few things that stopped it being 5 stars.

It’s a small plates tapas type of place, meaning you will likely have a lot of different dishes at your table....so why then would the tables be small? We made a reservation on Open Table for 4 persons, the table we were given was good for a party of 2 but small for a party of 4. No room for the glasses or water, wine and food to fit all at once. Half of my meal ended up on my lap.

Not the first visit to Chotto Matte, always a very decent to good experience... this time around... service was terrible, friendly waiters yes but waiting for ages, had to call them several times, had to make room for the dishes ourselves... the food... I have no words, only sent one back because we were embarrassed... one was excellent the others average to very poor. Not sure I’m risking it another time nor recommending it.

The ambience in Chotto is outstanding and special and that I feel is what you are really paying for here. The food, although good is mostly average with some exceptional, standout plates that are a world apart. £196 for 2 with three drinks is too much though for food of this standard

The waiting staff was very poor; very rarely made an appearance at the table and when they did, they did so with incorrect dishes, difficulty taking simple wine orders... We had to wait ages for several drinks and although Valentin tried to make everything better with a free drinks, we were still made to feel we hadn’t paid the bill... I love the food at Chottomatte but the staff and ambience do not warrant the very highly priced dishes. I won’t be returning to chottomatte any time soon.

Used to love ordering bento boxes but this time it wasn't very good: tuna in the rolls had an odd, "fishy" aftertaste, ceviche was drenched in sauce making us think they were trying camouflage something, the rice wasn't great either... Won't be coming back :(
