Sushi in the desert

Some of the best yellow tail I've had in a long time. The rest of the sushi and one roll I tried were very good. My parents had tempura and said it was excellent. Service was great, beer was cold.

If you are visiting Laughlin, NV, and you like sushi and/or Japanese food, you have to try Minato Japanese & Korean Restaurant. It is across the street from the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino, and just south of the Tropicana Express. The food is exceptional, the service is fast and courteous and the prices are very reasonable. Every time we... More

My wife and I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. Best Sushi in our opinion and fantastic people from host to servers. We have had Sushi in California, Scottsdale and along east coast and this place is the best.

Korean BBQ is my favorite.... and nobody does it better. You can hear the plate before it even enters the room, the sizzle is loud, and it lets you know your food is hot, fresh, and en route to your table.

Minatos has a great selection of both Japanese and Korean cuisine. Prices are good and the staff are very nice and make you feel welcome. It seems like everyone working there wants to make sure you enjoy the food and ask quite frequently how you like it. This place is a definite must in the Laughlin/bullhead area! I'm out!!

Minato's menu is fairly extensive and we only tried three of their sushi offerings. In addition to the traditional Japanese sushi they a Korean menu with BBQ and noodle soup. The sushi was fresh, prices were low, portions were big, the place was clean, and the service was fast and friendly. You can dine in or take out from Minato... More

Every time we visit Laughlin we make sure we eat at Minato. Everyone one is very friendly and they greet you with a smile and a welcome. My favorite dish is the hamachi kama, yellowtail collar, which most chefs will tell you that is the best part of the fish. I called to make sure they still had some because... More

We hit this place every year for the river run. They have not let me down in four trips. Super friendly staff. Great sushi. Nice interior. In a small strip mall across from the nugget. Many different choices for rolls. Have not eaten anything but rolls so no advice on the other items. Worth the walk.

Thank Robert C
