Pretty Good

This was as good as we've had elsewhere. We thought the prices were a little high. The service was a bit slow but they were very busy. All tatami rooms.

We are sushi fanatics, and used to love spending time in Vancouver to eat sushi, until we started eating sushi from Minato. Everything on the menu is delicious and very fresh. The atmosphere is 'fusion' with Japanese-style eating rooms and western seating. Great staff too.

Really good sushi and always very consistent in their portions and quality. Good pricing, fresh fish and not overpowered by mayonnaise sauce the way that some sushi restaurants are.

Much better than you would expect in a small city. Food was fresh and tasty and the service very good. Slightly pricier than comparable places in Vancouver.

Good food. Compared to cities with many sushi places it is a little pricy, but it is worth going there. They also offer take-out

Powell River is this Calgarian's home town. I have given up on Sushi in AB and can't wait to get home. Minato is always my first lunch when I get home. Its well priced, amazing flavors and great variety. My sister is a lunch box gal and I love the selection provided in a lunch box but nothing beats their... More

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.
