Sophisticated Sushi in Plantation

You don’t have to drive all the way to Miami to enjoy the best Sushi in South Florida. In fact, you can enjoy an exquisite fine dining experience with the freshest fish and tastiest creations right in the heart of Plantation. Renowned Executive Chef Jimmy-San is serving his fantastic cuisine at Otoro Sushi & Asian Kitchen located at The Shops at One Plantation on University Drive.

The restaurant features exotic creations that Chef Jimmy-San has developed during his 30+ year culinary career. These include meticulously crafted sushi, certified wagyu beef, and classic Asian cuisine dishes.

Chef Jimmy-San began his culinary career in Atlanta during the 1990s. He quickly moved up the culinary ladder, becoming the Executive Chef at some of Atlanta’s most renowned restaurants, including popular hot spots Twist and Prime. During that time he perfected his modern approach to the ancient Japanese art of sushi.

As soon as you step foot in the restaurant, your eyes will be drawn to an impressive, back-lit Mount Fuji landscape on the back wall of the main room. Between the beautiful, 20-foot-wide scene and the dining room is the space where the sushi masters do their work. A long, beautiful sushi counter made from exotic wood welcomes diners to have a seat.


When you visit Otoro, be sure to order “omakase.” Omakase translates to “I’ll leave it up to you” in Japanese. According to the Michelin Guide, “few dining experiences are more revered” worldwide. Omakase is best experienced at the sushi counter, where you can immerse yourself in the experience. Chef Jimmy-San and his highly trained chef staff will prepare one piece of fish at a time, describe its origin, and answer any questions you might have about the dish. You will marvel at the precision of their work, the incredible concentration, and the beauty of their knife work. 

An omakase meal is a multi-sensory, almost spiritual, experience. The chef will offer the perfect piece of fish for the season and is guided by his guests’ reactions. The presentation of each course is as visually stunning as the taste. Otoro also offers sake tastings to accompany the fish. This elegant dining experience is perfect for celebrating a special occasion or even a first date!

For those less adventurous, Otoro offers a variety of popular Asian dishes and traditional sushi offerings. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner and offers take-out options. 

Otoro is located in The Shops at One Plantation at 1447 S University Drive. Open Sunday through Thursday from 11 am to 10 pm, and Friday & Saturday from 11 am to 11 pm, we’re here to serve you!
