Excellent service. Fantastic food. Inside and out side seating. We have eaten here several times and ordered different things each time. We have never been disappointed.

We stopped here for dinner while nearby for the float pool spa. The place was pretty busy on a Friday night. We sat at the sushi bar rather than wait for a table. We had a good time trying sake flights and ordering sushi rolls...More

What a beautiful restaurant on the corner of a plaza. High wood ceiling with lots of natural light, large fish tank and even a tree in the middle of the dining room – very cool. Beautiful marble countertops, exotic wood tables and Japanese scrolls adorn...More

Four of us went for dinner at Otaku, a Japanese restaurant and sushi bar in Chandler. Otaku has more than enough options for people who won't eat raw seafood, like my girlfriend. My sashimi was fresh and delicious, my girlfriend's teriyaki chicken was tasty and...More

We haven't been here is awhile and now I remember why. If you really know and like your sushi/sashimi this is not the place to go, but on the other hand if you like Asian cooked foods then its OK. My party of 3 dined...More

The establishment is wonderfully arranged and includes patio dining. If you come for lunch early they appear a bit unorganized and it takes a while to get things moving. Some wait staff are better than others and it took longer than surrounding tables to get...More

Description
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.
