“best sushi in the county!!”
Review of Otoro Sushi

Otoro Sushi
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 21, 2012

We are so pleased with this new restaurant; everything works here. Fresh, inventive dishes and rolls, attentive and friendly staff, lovely decor... I just wish we had tried it sooner! The storefront is somewhat generic looking from the street and didn't draw me in at first, but now I know how great this place is and want to let others know. You gotta check this place out!

I love my sushi, and frequent many sushi bars in Santa Cruz and Santa Clara counties. My husband and I live near Scotts Valley, and are always lamenting the shortage of good restaurants. To our amazement, Otoro was one of the best sushi experiences we've had in a long time. We sat at the bar, and ordered our traditional stuff (soft shell crab, unagi, maguro, etc) and found the quality, freshness, flavor and presentation to be awesome. On our second visit, we let the sushi chef order for us and were delighted with the creative, unusual and, again, extremely fresh dishes. We had live scallop and amaebi which they served with grated/fresh wasabi. And many other dishes that I had never tried before. The menu includes traditional and exotic, hot dishes as well as sushi. The agedashi tofu was exceptional, crispy and floating in a delicious broth. A must if you love Japanese food!

Scotts Valley is mostly a diner's wasteland, so it was a real surprise to find such great sushi and sashimi at this new storefront. The menu is varied and imaginative, with good choices for traditional sashimi, sushi, and hot Japanese dishes, as well as a lot of sushi with cooked shellfish. The only category where the menu is lacking is for vegetarian sushi. The beer selection is also quite limited -- four Japanese beers that are all pretty dry and a half dozen American beers with big TV advertising budgets but not much taste.

Service is friendly and prompt. The restaurant is in a space that I'm told used to be game arcade, with no soft surfaces added to tame the noise. As a result, it's quite noisy, even when only half full. Free parking is easy and plentiful, right out front.
