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

I never had that much confidence on buffets but was quite impressed with Minado. The quality and variety of seafood and cold dishes were amazing. Each dish had its unique taste. I am not a sushi eater but my sushi lover husband was happy with the freshness and the variety of sushi there. What I was most grateful for was... More

Minado is always crowed and busy with sushi lovers who appreciate the huge selection of freshly made sushi and seafood offerings. On weekend the wait can be considerable. Once seated you have the opportunity to eat as much fresh sushi, seafood, shellfish,and several varieties of salad and desserts. The hot food offerings can suffer at times from over long steam...

This was the 3rd time we were there. My two teens love to go there whenever we went to Maine. They have different kinds of Sushi and the quality is pretty good. It's worth to go.

Some friends and family assured me that this place was really nice and worth the visit. For the price they charge and the quality they offer, I think it was really worth it. I had just many kinds of Japanese food, but the restaurant buffet offered primarily Pan-Asian cuisine and the other people with me assured that everything was worth... More

I use to love Minado and would go there often. They had a "frequent buyer" card, where after $200 you would get a free meal. So I saved my points ... and when I hit $200 (200 points) I was told it was now 250 points. Hmmm. So I saved and saved and finally reached 250 points. But it changed... More
