We went there last weekend for lunch to celebrate a birthday. It came to $88 before tip for two adults and three kids, just for the buffet. It's extra for drinks, including tea. It's called a seafood buffet, but the types of fish they serve have become the less expensive varieties, likely because the price of fish and seafood in... More

If you want to eat a huge volume of average sushi, this is the place. Chefs will make hand rolls to order, which is a good way to go. Hot food bar is OK. Most items have too much onion flavor. They also do soups and grilled meats to order. The salad and raw bar is actually very good. They... More

We drove 40 minutes to get here. A bit tricky to find with the GPS. The restaurant is in a plaza towards the end away from the main road, and their sign is not lit up at night. Buffet wise... many great selections. It is mostly Chinese and sushi, but they have a small area where I found Korean bbq... More

Buffet grossness. Bad rice. It smells. Not as clean as it should be. Questionable quality. Good concept, but not a good idea.

Okay, so let me begin by saying that I'm not a big buffet fan, except very occasionally and in the afternoon. However, if you pick and choose well, you can have a quality meal at this place. $32 for dinner seems steep and with sake, my bill was north of $50 for me. However, they have an impressive selection of... More

We have eaten in Minado many times; it's a place we like to go with a large family groups. Each person can get what they want, and can eat as much as they want. This solves the problems of fussy eaters and small/large eaters in one group. But the buffet at Minado is too big to eat the whole thing... More

For a mere $37.95 you can indulge in a very large variety of expertly prepared sushi. They had a wide variety of tuna, salmon and other fish offerings, and even a range of roe and uni. However, this seems to be somehow a serious violation of the whole concept of exquisite individual freshly prepared and artful sushi/sashimi food presentation. The... More

WOW what a delicious, huge buffet. There were so many dishes from which to choose including many vegetarian options. We spent about 2 hours here enjoying the food and company. Not crowded at all and very affordable
