There's a new hangout in town! Chotto Matte. Bringing the underground energy of Tokyo to the streets of Soho. Located on the corner of Bateman and Frith, Chotto Matte brings together the best of Japanese and Peruvian cultures serving up high-quality Nikkei cuisine, colourful cocktails mixed by expert mixologists, live music and DJ sets.
Chotto Matte is spread across three floors with a burnt-timber staircase leading you to an open Robata grill, sushi bar, and 100-cover dining room. The exposed Robata grill accommodates up to 10 guests and serves smoky Japanese BBQ such as hotpots, Wagyu beef, and seasonal grilled vegetables straight from grill to plate.
Executive Chef Jordan Sclare has created a stunning menu that prides itself on being affordable, evolving and designed to encourage a relaxed, sharing environment with dishes including Avocado Tempura with smoked purple potato; BBQ Pork Belly nashi pear salsa; Grilled Baby Chicken with spicy pomegranate salsa; BBQ specialties from the Robata Grill, and a selection of fresh, sustainably sourced sushi.
The wine list offers over 58 wines by the glass, carafe, and bottle – something for everyone. Find the wine menu in their expansive cocktail lounge featuring a curved bar cut from lava stone from which skilled mixologists will shake up Nikkei inspired Pisco, Sochu, and Sake cocktails.
We went for team members birthday and were not disappointed! We would definitely recommend the octopus, tempura and the black cod! The dessert of course was our favourite, you HAVE to try the salted caramel!
