I have eaten many things and have den delighted with everything that I ate! It is all made to order and you have your own private area which is very nice!

I took some visitors here for a lunch. They eat sushi more often than I do and they were pleased with their selection. I ordered the lunch equivalent of a bento box and it was very good with miso soup and tempura in addition to selected sushi. I cannot comment on dinner but I am sure the quality is consistent....

Have only been here a couple of times but enjoyed the food and service was good. You are seated in private rooms, which is very nice. We live in Powell River.

Whenever I want to give my wife a break from cooking, and we both want to eat well, we head to Minato's. We've known the owners since day one in the Rodmay Hotel and they never have disappointed us yet. My "gimme" are the prawn tempura, shitake mushroom salad and deluxe sashimi. Marian goes for a variety of rolls. It's... More

Way to little for what you should have to pay $16 for a roll, get serious. It costs way less in Gibson and taste way much better plus I mean the amount of food that you get at Minato compared to going to place like say Sima sushi, they have no passion or love what they put it into their... More

This was as good as we've had elsewhere. We thought the prices were a little high. The service was a bit slow but they were very busy. All tatami rooms.

We are sushi fanatics, and used to love spending time in Vancouver to eat sushi, until we started eating sushi from Minato. Everything on the menu is delicious and very fresh. The atmosphere is 'fusion' with Japanese-style eating rooms and western seating. Great staff too.

Really good sushi and always very consistent in their portions and quality. Good pricing, fresh fish and not overpowered by mayonnaise sauce the way that some sushi restaurants are.
