Yes the price may seem high, but it is truly worth the experience and variety of food you have access to. We went in a family group, so the experience was very fun to share. I thought I knew the best of what all-you-can-eat sushi has to offer, this place really opened my eyes to how limited my understanding really... More

If all you like is sushi then try this restaurant. I felt it was way overpriced and too much seafood and sushi to accommodate those who are not fond of that type of food and want to dine with us. We use to go to Buffet East on Route 110 and it had something for everyone, and you felt you... More

As a sushi buffet itself, Minado impresses with its service, and appealing atmosphere, but sometimes lacks when it comes to sushi quality. As a local fix for your relatively inexpensive sushi craving, Minado is a great decision for the whole family. Don't go to Minado expecting a 5 star meal though because you won't get one. Overall, Minado is a... More

We eat here sometimes because its location is convenient for us. However, they never open on time (for the lunch buffet, anyway) and the rush for the food is just ugly. People push and jostle and pile their plates over and over again so the good stuff like salmon disappear very fast and take too long to reappear. The food... More

Freshest seafood and sushi for the buck. Everything on the buffet is awesome. Fast service and even food items for the kids. The sushi is being prepared as it goes. And it all goes fast. Been here a few times.. Never a bad experiance, however ice cream is good but the deserts lack in taste a little. But by the... More

Love, love,love this small but fabulous diner. Eggs and everything they can do in a skillet and served in it. It's been there forever and never seems old.

Have been there several times but it seems to have gone down since the ownership changed over. A nice selection of sushi, cold crab legs, raw oysters as well as a cold salad bar and a hot buffet as well. Some things are tasty and if you are hoing to eat loads of sushi and crab legs I guess it's... More

This is a very popular restaurant, particularly for those who love Asian buffets. They are famous for a large variety of sushi, freshly made in front of you. My favorites are the California roll, tempura roll & soft shell crab roll. I prefer my fish cooked. There is a soup station that has custom made bowls of udon (thick) noddle... More
