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!

If you are a fan of Sushi and other Japanese cuisine, don't miss this one! We have been going for years but had not been recently. My wife took me on fathers day, one of two days, (mothers day the other ) where dinner is served all day. For a buffet you might think a little pricey, $30.95 per person... More

Minado is where we go when we want to treat ourselves, when we're hungry for something special, celebrating an occasion, or in the mood for seafood. Minado is the largest Japanese buffet we've ever seen. There is a large sushi/sashimi buffet separate from the hot buffet and also a separate section of exotic salads. On Fridays there is special seafood... More

Yet another pleasing dinner at a high quality sushi treasure. The selection as always was spot on, the sushi fresh and tasty, with only a few issues. Some of the salads were not the usual, which was a slight disappointment, and getting a raw oyster was like fighting a bear, although it's not really the restaurants fault. People simply feel...

It has been a long time since I've been here. This is because they charged a lot for a not-very-quality dining experience. I was pleasantly surprised that they have changed, presenting quality and expensive dining choices with great service. The food was delicious. But because I am sensitive to MSG, I will not be back. Fantastic vegetarian Sushi, Crepes made... More
