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.

Food was very good servics not so much

They don't give you plates for you appetizers, they forgot to give us wasabi. And the waiter was very slow. But the food was very good it may have just been a bad waiter but I recommend this place its very nice and not expensive.

My wife and I decided we wanted sushi on a Sunday afternoon and headed to Otaku because our friends praised it. It was closer to our house than our favorite sushi place in Arizona: RA. The decor consisted of fine marble, rich dark woods and similar high-end interior furnishings. We sat in an atrium like glass walled copula area with... More

After looking at some reviews, and hungering for some sushi this was the choice. The location and parking is very good. The interior decor is modern, however the music seemed a little loud at 4:30 in the afternoon. The edamame was excellent and so was the spicy tuna roll. I sampled other rolls from our group and they were very... More

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

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
