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

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

Ate here for my birthday on Sept 28th. So disappointed. They have raised the price since my wife's birthday meal in may and lowered the food quality all at the same time. Used to really seem like top quality food with great prep and plating now it seems like any run of the mill sushi bar . Used to really... More

Use your Minado credit now, as they are changing their name and points earned will soon be worthless. The sushi is the emphasis and it is still very good-though the service behind the sushi bar is less professional. The other food choices remain varied and very well prepared. Thes restuarant remains the same, no remodeling or anthing and not really... More

Took my family to Minado to celebrate Parent Weekend at Hofstra University. This buffet is amazing. The scope of food offered is tremendous - tempura, crab legs, 39 different kinds of sushi and sashimi, udon and ramen noodle soups, beef dishes, chicken, fish, ribs, salads, ice cream, desserts, and many more I can't think of. The quality is exceptional. This... More
