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.

Imoto is always bustling. Filled with young people, loud, but comfortable. Sushi is really good. We tried the Flavor PB menu and enjoyed all 3 courses, especially the tuna poke bowl. Would recommend.

Overall, it was a great experience... I would say the best part was the service. The spicy tuna roll is above average, but nothing really wowed us.

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.

Imoto at Buccan offers excellent sushi and outstanding service. For those not into sushi, ask about ordering from Buccan (sister restaurant) next door. The Happy Hour (M-F) provides the best value.

If you're reading this to figure out whether you should try Imoto, just do it. Always amazing. Never had a bad meal or experience there. It can be a little pricey but worth it.

Imoto and Buccan are 2 of my favorite restaurants in the Palm Beach and West PB area. The sushi at Imoto is by far the best for miles around. Its unique-not the run of the mill, same in every restaurant sushi. Service is great and for those who don't want sushi the full buccan menu is available in Imoto or vice versa. The food at both are simple amazing.

We’ve been fortunate to have eaten sushi all over the world and this was some of the best ever!
Cool vibe, fun atmosphere, great people watching and fantastic service. Chelsea recommended a few things on the menu we might not have thought about.
The duck tacos were amazing, the tuna tataki was some of the best we’ve had, hamachi and nigiri were solid tens.
The strawberry rhubarb dessert with ice cream was divine.
There’s no real sign out front. Small intimate place next to Būccan, which is also Fabulous!

Highly recommended

I was kept waiting, which I did not appreciate, that is not typical of them. It seemed to be especially busy. The hostess was lovely. Our server was not too good and one of the dishes the Duck Tacos were just room temperature. She did not seem to know the right sauce for them. I have been there 3 prior times and we had a different sauce for dipping which was thick and a bit sweet. She served us a vinegar tasting soy. There is not a consistency with this place. Buccan is always perfection and the dishes ordered taste the same each time. The spare ribs were hot and excellent. The licorice ice cream was not as good as a week before and it had ice pieces in it.
