Otaku was an unexpected and wonderful experience. My daughter is a calamari freak, and Otaku's was the best she ever had, anywhere. I had a Bento Box, and every item was excellent, the honey chicken, California roll, spring roll, gyoza, brown rice, Asian salad, and,...More

Everything they make is excellent. Some of the best we've had and we go to a lot of Japanese places. The California rolls were done just perfect - often they fall apart when eating but not these. Very reasonably priced too.

We were eating at Otaku twice while I was in Arizona. The staff was most friendly and professional. The selection of the Asian Food is very nice and it was difficult to decide between Sushi and all the other nice dishes. The quality of the...More

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

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.
