Chotto Matte London
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.

Excellent experience all around. The food and service was exceptional. I’ll definitely go back when I’m in London again.
Amazing service and excellent food. Expensive but you get what you pay for. Definitely recommend
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.
A bit too loud for dinner setting as you need to shout to have conversation.
Food and service amazing.
Music was too loud. The food was good. Ambience ok.
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,
I was not happy with our place
Very nice for a weekend dinner. Delicious food. Good drinks.
The food is wonderful but my god is it expensive. To be expected I’m sure but managed to spend 250 on 2 people with one bottle of wine.
My inhibitions and lack thereof are however largely responsible for this.
Great service and amazing food! Have already booked another evening there!
Dear Shauna, Thank you for your comments. We are so pleased you enjoyed your experience with us and we looking forward to see you again soon. Regards , Chotto Matte team
Lovely restaurant, it did get a little loud as the evening went on with the music, but overall, great food and good atmosphere.
Tasty food and good service. More conducive to shared dining.
Dear AngelMann, Thank you so much for your great review. We hope you will visit us again soon. Regards , Chotto Matte team
The Fusion cuisine was very special, the new Peruvian combination and the Japanese was perfect, the Pisco sour was delicious and the service outstanding, we were celebrating our wedding anniversary and definitely we will come back

Dear sstriping, I am so glad you enjoyed your meal and thank you so much for posting such a lovely review. We hope to welcome you back soon . Regards , Chotto Matte team
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!
Dear Milacik, Thank you very much for your wonderful feedback. We are all really happy to read your experience lived up to your expectations and we certainly hope to see you again soon ! Regards , Chotto Matte team
Food and service are good but a bit too noisy for me and music is too loud.
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!
Dear ValentinaA, Thank you for your recent visit and review, we hope you will visit us again soon. Regards , Chotto Matte team
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.
Dear OliviaT, Thank you for your comments. We take all feedback seriously and I will discuss your points with the team. We hope that you will revisit us in the future. Regards , Chotto Matte team
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
We sincerely appreciate that you took the time to write a review. We always aim to provide our guests with a top service and your point will be discussed with the team here at Chotto Matte and we hope to welcome you again very soon. Best regards, Chotto-Matte team
Fun, lively restaurant. Good for groups. Friendly waiting staff. Vegetarian options OK, but not very exciting.
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 was a very enjoyable experience ! The food was amazing, every dish that came had such nice taste. The atmosphere was good and we enjoyed our time there. There was actually a lot of food for the three of us but we enjoyed it a lot. Couldn’t move after. Loved it
Dear guest, Thank you so much for writing a review and your lovely comments which I will pass on to the team. We hope to see you again soon. Regards , Chotto Matte team
Incredible food! Very fast service and amazing ambiance. One of my favourite London spots.

Dear RebeccaG, We're so glad you enjoyed your meal and thank you so much for posting such a lovely review. regards , Chotto Matte team
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.
Dear guest , Thank you for your review , we take customer feedback seriously and appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. Regards , Chotto Matte team
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.
Very good , we enjoyed it very much , and would come Back in the future !
Dear ItayN, Thank you for your comments. We are so pleased you enjoyed your meal with us and hope to see you again soon. Regards , Chotto Matte team
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
Dear DanielL, We're so glad you enjoyed your meal and thank you so much for posting such a lovely review. Regards , Chotto Matte team
Our favorite place in London! Any occasion, we're there. Never fails.
Dear InbalG, Thank you so much for your great review. We hope you will visit us again soon. Regards , Chotto Matte team
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.
