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 here and a Saturday night around 7:30. The place was filled. Atmosphere very nice. Our... 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 served. I was very pleased with my selection, it was fresh, tasty, and plated well.... More

Otaku is an airy, clean restaurant and we've enjoyed many meals there, both seated in the dining room area and at the bar. The water generally comes with a slice of cucumber. My favorite is the squid salad; simple and tasty. We've ordered sushi and it was very good. We prefer to patronize non-chain restaurants and this fits the bill.... More

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

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.

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

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.
