The amount of sushi that you get for your money is worth it. If you are like me you like a taste of everything and this offers fresh sushi along with tons of other Asian flavors from habachi to crab legs. I couldn't move when I left but it was worth every penny

I have been a regular patron of this once fine restaurant since it opened in 2006. T that time it was by far the best Sushi/Asian buffet around. Sadly though, over the past 2 years the quality and variety of food has declined. The fish is not of a good quality and is often discolored and unfresh. The choices are... More

When you think about a Japanese/Chinese buffet, not the most pleasant thoughts come to your mind. This place is awesome, the sushi is high quality and you have many impressive options to choose. Totally recommend this place with family.

The food is served buffet style. Options are mainly sushi, but there are hot seafood entrees, a hibatchi where food is cooked to order, a crepe bar with your choice of fruit for dessert, and udon with your choice of seafood. The cookies on the dessert bar were like pure butter, although cakes, served like the sushi in small pieces,... More

for $30 a person I would have expected much more... the sushi was not bad, but definitely not superb, and I have had much better in cheaper sushi places... the hot entrees were just bad.. the crab legs were amazing, if it wasn't for the fact that they keep the cold!! and the salad were pretty decent. The desserts were... More

Minado is a buffet that does mainly sushi, along with some other hot dishes. The sushi is decent, although it's still not as good as what you'd get from a sit-down place. It would be nice if they marked the rolls a little better--sometimes you're just guessing at what's in them. I did like that they had a crepe station... More

My visit was during the lunch hours. This restaurant qualifies as one of those little hidden secrets. The food is fresh and there is so much to choose from. There is plenty of cooked food, as well as Sushi. The choices are delicious, and you can eat until you are content. The service is friendly and attentive. As in most... More

The variety and the quality of food is great! Definitely to consider for sushi lovers. Not a high-end, but it's all-you-can-eat place.

I always stop here at least once or twice per month! Sushi is prepared right in front of you and the selection is amazing. The staff are extremely polite and helpful!
