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 and nigiri sushi along with vegetable and shrimp tempura. Staff was helpful and friendly, but... 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 the walls. You have numerous options for seating. You can sit outside, in the dining... 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 my daughter and her husband's sushi was said to be excellent.

Lovely server was attentive to our various dietary needs and her presence added to the dining experience. I was disappointed that Pad Thai is no longer on the menu but the Pineapple Fried Rice with Chicken & Shrimp was a quite good and a huge amount of food--good the next day! What was SPECTACULAR was the Tempura Appetizer. It was... More

This is a cute little sushi/Asian fusion place in chandler. It is a bit pricey, but hey...who said sushi is cheap? The food is good and the waits are short. I definitely have other favorite sushi places but for chandler this one is not bad at all. I eat here regularly and have never had a bad experience.

We used to come here a two or three years ago, bcse we were renting a home just around the corner. It was farily new at that time, and we really thought it was great value/variety/taste for the money. We still do! It was MUCH more crowded this time. We walked up (no reservation) at 5:45pm, and could only find... 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 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

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.
