Chotto Matte

6 user reviews 4

One of London's coolest restaurants, Chotto Matte fuses Japanese and Peruvian cuisine through its innovative Nikkei menu. Pop over to the Soho spot for the chance to tuck into beef tataki and passion fruit salsa, sea bass ceviche and aubergine miso sushi, washed down with some of their sumptuous signature cocktails.

Putting all associations of darts being an 'old man's game' to absolute shame; welcome to Flight Club. Truly revolutionising the pastime as we know it, it's all electronic gaming and scoring here (so you don't even have to be that good). With authentic thin-crust pizzas on the go too, this is one trendy London spot.
