Imoto (little sister) is Buccan's version of an Izakaya. The Japanese Izakaya's were traditionally down-to-earth gathering places to go get a drink and something to eat after work. Imoto Room is an extension of Buccan's small plate - big flavor concept with Japanese and other Asian influence. The menu offers items ranging from innovative sushi & sashimi to Clay Conley's interpretations of other Asian favorites.

Very nice total experience. Complimentary valet parking was convenient and friendly. Greeted warmly as we walked in and taken immediately to our table. Decor is modern and interesting. Wait service helpful and efficient.
Food was very good overall. We especially liked the Peking duck tacos and tuna tataki. Special nigiri also excellent. California roll was okay, but not special, wouldn’t order again because the other stuff is more creative.
We will definitely return the next time we’re in the Palm Beach area.

We have been big fans of Imoto and especially like the young and friendly waitstaff. But we were really disappointed with the quality of the food this time - the sushi roll was literally slapped loosely together and each piece fell apart immediately when we tried to pick it up. The duck tacos, usually a favorite, contained subpar duck meat- more scraps, really - ..I couldn’t finish mine. We will be back to give them another chance but don’t let your game slip, people !

Sushi was not the best quality. The sushi guys were inexperience and the items I ordered were not up to par. Salmon skin hand role had sheets of what looked and felt like hard brown seaweed paper, instead of salmon skin. The eel had some overseeet, inedible sauce on it. The sashimi, for $4 a piece, was ridiculously thin and tasteless.

Very noisy at 8 pm on a Tuesday which mainly came from the bar area. Had to talk loudly to hear my wife across the table. Restaurant was low lit with small spot lights and candles which made picture taking difficult but the ambiance was nice. We did the Flavor of the month courses which was excellent. I had the assorted sashimi (Course 1) and then the Spicy Tuna Hand Roll & assorted Nigiri (Course 2) which was some of the best sushi I've had. Sashimi and Nigiri were cut perfectly and the quality of fish was great. Chef really knows his fish. Complimentary valet was great. Would definitely come back, but maybe on a different night in hopes of finding that quieter night.

Pretty close to perfect. Although a busy weekend night, seated immediately at back sushi bar as requested. Service was prompt, attentive, friendly and professional (thanks Sophie). The fish was fresh, high grade and presented beautifully; some interesting combinations completed a first class evening.

This was our first time at Imoto. The service was friendly and attentive and the food was delish. The edamame was unique with a type of glazed crust. The sushi tasted fresh and the ingredients were all complimentary to the dish. I would highly recommend going there! We will surely be back.
