Chotto Matte Soho

The restaurant’s proposition is to bring a slice of urban Tokyo to London. The food is Nikkei cuisine, the Peruvian-Japanese fusion we have become familiar with from Nobu, set in a frame of dark wood, steel and manga art, and driven by a pumping soundtrack. The restaurant is full of groups of young women and couples all dressed to impress and excited to be in Soho on a big night out. I feel like their dad but know that I was their age I would want to be there too.
