What they say:

Chotto Matte, situated on the old Giraffe restaurant site in Soho, combines the class of some of London's most sought after Japanese restaurants with the accessibility of Soho's eateries. The restaurant for diners offers authentic Nikkei inspired cuisine, while Chotto Matte's cocktail bar and lounge is ideal for the casual revellers hoping to try something new and exciting. The one thing Chotto Matte has that separates it, even from this illustrious group, is its diverse and vibrant atmosphere that suits all types for any occasion.

What we say:

This restaurant and bar situated in the heart of Soho on Firth Street brings a more versatile drinking and dining experience to Londoners. Fine wine, inspired cocktails, Japanese whisky, sake and premium beers are available at the bar along with fun atmosphere and regular live music events; and for those who are peckish for some grub, Chotto Matte boasts a menu developed by Jordan Sclare and a sushi bar manned by Tetsuya Kato, ex-personal sushi chef to the Emperor of Japan (ooh, er!). You'd be a fool to miss out on the seven course sushi tasting menu, priced at an amazing £35 and crafted by skilled hands.
