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

This is a great buffet with many choices including vegetarian. The sushi options are the best I've seen. The green tea ice cream is a favorite! We came for lunch and definitely get your money's worth. The service was excellent and the place is clean. We will be regulars!

We love Minado as an event restaurant for extended family, or a food-oriented birthday celebration. It's a warehouse with a massive, high quality buffet. But, it's noisy, and the time spent at the buffet means that dinner is a disjointed affair that doesn't create a dinner conversation. There is lots of good food for just about any taste. I spend...

The best and biggest Japanese buffet I've been with variety of sushi, sashimi, and Japanese foods and salads, if you like Japanese cuisine Minado Restaurant is the best place. The price about $33 per person but eat all you can.

More choices than you can possibly try and fresh in every station. Sushi, steamed seafood, soups, salads, desserts, fried fish, it's all here. Come hungry and leave satisfied.

Minado was my favorite restaurant but I noticed changes recently, it still good but not like before, sushi buffet is great but the raw station and hot station are not that good anymore
