I thought the sushi was a reasonable value and I really enjoyed the toro tuna. The wait was quite long, but they had a girl being trained when I was there. Overall I would definitely come back.

If you like sushi, sashimi and other forms of Japanese cuisine, this is the place for your taste buds to explore and simply enjoy. My husband went the first time under protest, since he didn’t think he liked sushi, but the friends we went with assured us there were other things on the menu. Well we didn’t even get through...

We tried the assorted sashimi and a few rolls and the qualit was very good. Prices are a bit higher than your average sushi place though

Overall, the decor of the restaurant leaves a lot to be desired. The place looks old and cluttered and tired and needs a good update. Someone said that this was the best sushi in Powell River, but that's not saying much - it's almost the only sushi in Powell River. The other places either only serve it occasionally or they... More

Have been to this place a lot of times over the years and have never been disappointed. You will have to wait a while if it's busy because everything is done fresh to order and it is worth the time it takes. Service is awesome too!

Minato sushi is the best place in town to have great sushi with friends and family! They have friendly and warming staff. The times where I have gone, I never have to wait to be seated, there is someone always next to the door to greet me/us. The sushi is great for a small city and authentic as can be.... More

I like this place and go often, but only for lunch as the dinner menu is very expensive and the portions not much bigger than the lunch meal

We have been going to Minato Sushi for the past 7 years and the food is always top notch. Their wait staff is always friendly and courteous, as well as the owners. I know some other people have commented about their portions, but I think they are pretty typical of any sushi restaurant. The quality is definitely on par with... More

When I go to Powell River, I try only to dine at Minato's once every few months. The sushi is delicious, authentic, but expensive! The beef and chicken terriyaki is tender, juicy and flavorful. The Bento boxes are pricey for the amount given. Be prepared if a couple to spend $50 to ++ dollars to dine here on JUST FOOD.... More
