Yes it's a buffett however the food is really fresh and variety is good. They have a great selection of rolls and also whole fresh fish! Also oysters, clams and muscles. Wait staff is very friendly and keeps the table clear for action!

Yes, it's a buffet with sushi, and the sushi is good. But it's not amazing or even really memorable - it's plain sushi. The fact that it was fresh and didn't make me sick is good enough to keep it a 3 star, but just because it's a buffet doesn't earn it more stars in my book. I didn't care... More

Minado is you're average Buffett with a decent ambiance. There really isn't anything above and beyond what other buffets offer and I can't see anyone raving about it either. The cost is on the higher side and again it's not over the top like a Crazy Buffet (Tampa Fl). Just as most buffets now a days, you arrive on a... More

This place is clean and obviously a step up from your typical Chinese buffet. I am not a true sushi lover. I really stick with things like Cali rolls, avocado rolls and other non fish rolls. I've been here for both lunch and dinner and i have to say I enjoyed lunch more. Lunch is also much cheaper than dinner.... More

First visit since am in town for work. Wasn't sure what was decent so I went to trip advisor and saw the reviews and they were accurate. Food was good, staff was friendly. Place was clean. A few steps up from the typical Chinese buffets. Will definitely return if work brings me to town again.

My first impression of the place was WOW! It's huge with a crazy amount of food to choose from. For the most part everything was good from sushi to hot plates to apps. The only thing I was not fond of were the crab legs (over cooked) and crepes. My friend made me get one. I was ok with the... More

If you are looking for all-you-can eat, asian with a lot of seafood this is the place for you. Ingredients appear fresh, were well prepared and presented. Service was attentive for the things you don't do yourself. The sushi selection was a very broad variety, better quality than you'd find in another buffet restaurant or the grocery. A little pricy...

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
