They have a great happy hour for sushi and drinks--it doesnt include the Scorpion Bowl, but thats what we come for. The sushi is delicious and we love the location, right near the train.

This is my daughter's favorite Japanese restaurant. They love the sushi and Nabayaki Udon. Everything is made fresh. We've never gotten anything we didn't like here. NAND the service is excellent, too!

Minami's is head and shoulders above most Japanese eateries on the Island & in the City. The sushi is fresh, artfully prepared and served by the most gracious wait staff you are likely to encounter in any restaurant. The cooked dishes are equally expertly prepared with options such as filet mingnon beef teriaki, fresh seafood (try the snapper fish katsu)... More

My wife and I have been to Minami many times. Their sushi is top notch. Service is excellent. The entire restaurant has been re-modeled. It has a new modern appearance with plenty of tables and a sushi bar. They also have excellent take out if you don't have time for the whole dining experience. Try it, you'll like it.

Coming since it opened and was at the previous incarnation, Wokkers. Sushi is very good but try the Kashawasakani. It's stir fried veggies and chicken with peppers. House made up dish so no translation but my favorite.

Best sushi place around. They just redid the place and it super nice inside. Bummed out that they don't do delivery though.

Central Ave in Massapequa is kind of like an afterthought. It parallels the main drag, Broadway where most of the local businesses are. Central Ave is known by the locals or Kirsches, the retro ice cream parlor/sweet shop/luncheonette, or one of the town libraries. I happened to notice Minami one day and had an opportunity to drop by for dinner... More

We started eating at minami shortly after it was opened. Maggie ran the restaurant, her son was in kindergarten. She spoke of how she started her mornings going to Fulton Street for the freshest fish. They have a wide variety of rolls (one of our greater interests) and I single-handedly have tried a great many of them. The decor is... More
