In 2011, after working for ten years with Japanese sushi masters in San Francisco, Chef Mike Lin relocated to the Puget Sound area to open his very own "sushi-ya." Quickly recognizing a need on the Eastside for sushi that equaled or surpassed the best available in downtown Seattle, he opened the first Oto in Kirkland. Building on the success of the original location, Mike opened a second, and larger, Oto in downtown Redmond. Both restaurants serve traditional sushi, sashimi, creative rolls, and classic Japanese dishes, while continuing to setting the standard for quality, freshness and value on Seattle's Eastside.
To better accommodate customers' high expectations, Chef Peter Ni, master chef from Los Angeles, joined the Oto family and you'll find him and the entire staff ready to serve you their best. A taste is worth a thousand words, so please give us a try!
