Otaku: obsessed, hardcore fan, cult fan, fanboy or nerd. Originating in Japan from a polite second-person pronoun meaning "your home." Otaku in the U.S. is used much like the term geek. We have brought this obsession to South Chandler. Enjoy traditional Asian cuisine, artfully prepared. Fresh maki (rolls), sushi, sashimi, noodle dishes and omakase are just the beginning of this incredible dining experience.

We love this place!

Otaku is our #1 choice for sushi in Chandler. The food and service are great! We went in with a group of 8, including a baby. We were seated quickly, and the service was amazing.

Albeit in a strip mall (what else is there in the East Valley) the decor is sleek, chic, and inviting. I would say great feng shui. Depending on your mood or the occasion, you can choose to sit in the light and airy glass atrium, the outdoor patio, a dining room booth, or at the bar. I really liked the... More

My wife and I stopped in for sushi last evening. The restaurant sits in a strip mall but is very attractive. The decor is pleasant. The service also is quite good. We started by ordering drinks and two cups of miso soup. The soup was good but not very hot.We ordered a tuna sushi and a smoked salmon sushi along... More

My family and I love Otaku. Good food, fun restaurant with a friendly staff. My son likes their kids' menu but has recently graduated to the sushi bar which is even more fun. Great happy hour too!

My wife and I recently went on a date here on a Friday night. We have driven by this place 100 times but have never been. It is on Gilbert road, near all of the retail at 202/Gilbert. However this place is a little further south then the bulk of the retail area and may be a little harder to... More

Today I went to the sushi restaurant of Otaku. The decorations are very elegant and quite enjoyable. I was amazed by how realistic the feel of this restaurant had. Everywhere you look there is Asian artwork. I truly felt connected with the appearance of this place. At this restaurant you can get sushi, rice, meat, and many other Asian cultured... More

During the past two months we ate three times at Otaku. Each time the service was excellent and the food absolutely delicious. On the Saturday night before Mother's Day, I had the black cod in miso on the recommendation of our waiter. I normally eat seafood but this was the BEST fish I have ever been served!!! Another occasion we... More

Husband said the squid salad was the best he's had. The Dynamite, Red Blossom and Shrimp Tempura rolls are awesome. Unique atmosphere. Service at bar on an early Saturday night was great. Definitely give it a try. It's pricey but all sushi is anymore.
