Thought that my 11 and 13 year old would be paying less for the buffet, but I was wrong as it goes by height not age. Place is always very crowded, and they are very good about keeping the food coming. It might be best to go for lunch as opposed to dinner. The bill for a family of 4... More

This is not your typical buffet. The Sushi is actually very good and there are dozens of other foods. I should note that the Sushi is not an afterthought. There are dozens of types of Sushi. Yes, lots of other things besides Sushi as well including roasts, chicken, duck, you name it. Bring an appetite. It isn't cheap (about $30... More

You really should come very hungry and prepare to pace yourself. This all you can eat buffet has rows of sushi, fresh oysters, king crab legs, plenty of hot dishes and even a crepe station!

I've been here a couple of times and never been disappointed. The sushi buffet is, well, awesome. So much to try, so little space in my belly! If you don't like sushi, there is plenty of other items on the buffet. Go here - you won't be disappointed.

The sushi here is a a lot better than you expect from an "All you can eat" sushi place. The fish is but I suspect it was frozen. Good selection and very decent quality, just not outstanding.

We go to minado fairly often. It's good value for the cost. The sushi is not fabulous but acceptable. The other half of the restaurant has salads, stir frys, veggie and meat dishes, hibachi, steamed dumplings and soups. So there is really something for everyone. It tends to be crowded on weekend nights but the line usually moves pretty quickly.... More

Lots of options: hot dishes, cold dishes, meat, seafood, vegetables, rice, noodles, sushi, desserts. You name it and they have it here. Fast turnaround so even if there is a wait it does not take long. A bit pricey for dinner so check them out for lunch.

A group of colleague and I went there for lunch after a meeting. Front the time we walked in, the reception was great. Our servers were exceptional. They didn't want us to use our forks so they gave those little gadgets to hold our chopsticks in place so that we wouldn't look so awkward using them. That was FANTASTIC! Now... More

Dinner is a bargain at $32.95! There is a large selection of Asian foods and a huge sushi area. I will personally recommend the teriyaki beef and chicken...wonderful! The short ribs are tender and fantastic as well as the chicken wings! There are also spring rolls & dumplings that are tasty. There is a hibachi grill, which, I didn't try... More
