Better than average Japanese buffet

This is a great place for all you can eat sushi. Good news and bad news is this place is popular and often crowded. This means you may wait to get in, but it also means that the sushi is constantly refreshed. Huge selections, excellent quality. Not cheap. Maybe $30 per person. Check the... read more

This is a sushi / seafood buffet with an enormous variety of delicious choices, including desserts. You can't help but to pile it on your plate because it all looks and tastes so good. The only negative I can say is that it does take away from the aesthetics when you see Mexicans preparing the sushi. There are so many... More

We saw this restaurant when we took a walk around the area by our hotel, the Homeward Suites. We checked it out on Tripadvisor and decided to go for dinner. The selection of hot foods and cods salads was great. But the sushi selection was the star. Everything was fresh and well labeled, which is good for someone with food... More

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
