One of the best and most unusual (Japanese sushu & seafood) lunch buffets I have partaken. Amazing variety - noodles, salads, fish, vegetables, deserts. Plenty of choices for even those on restrictive diets. Nice open/ spacious ambiance and charming decor. Attentive servers. Hard not to overeat! Convenient suburban location.

Minado is our favorite restaurant. This Japanese buffet has hot food, salads and sushi/sashimi lines that are extraordinary. The food always fresh and the cuisine is creative and unique. We especially enjoy Fridays which are "seafood nights" with extra treats on the hot food line such as head-on shrimp on skewers, crab legs, baked fish, and (in season) crabs, mussels,... More

This was a recommendation, so after my husband and I picked up relatives from Logan Airport, we decided to give it a try. I found the food and choices to be exceptional even for the non sushi lovers like my husband. He found plenty to eat and loved the veggie tempura. Everything was fresh and did not taste like it...

Went here after a long flight from Phoenix. Sister-in-law heard about this place from her work. Wide variety of food so plenty of choices. Sushi lovers will have a field day but also great tempera, chicken wings and veggies for the non sushi eaters. Only down side: was a little noisy and the tables are pretty close together. (Went on...

Someone had told me about this place. I was very disappointed. I don't have a love for buffet's. I think the quality of the food suffers. I did enjoy some of the salads. Oysters were so small they should have been left in the ocean to grow more.

Our family recently visited Minado on a trip through Natick. They were super busy, and came highly recommended by friends. I don't eat sushi, but my husband does. He said that the sushi was fine, but he didn't much like the lack of variety and the buffet style. It says buffet right on the sign outside, so we were expecting... More

If you love sushi, it's a good deal. I tend to get sick of sushi after a couple of bites, so I wasn't overly impressed with the value. However, we were so pleased with the desserts! So delicious. Overall, the place was really cool and was a fun time.

Very pricey, but a lot of people were there. Not too many options besides the sushi. Only go if a huge sushi lover.
