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.

When we are bored we like to have lunch at Minado because of the dozens of choices.We like the soup and all the prepared eastern dishes, from whole fried fish to baked whitefish, chicken wings, beef, mussels, various Eastern veggie concoctions. There is also a sushi bar with many selections, although the quality to me, is a little flat. Minado... More

I love this place. Decided to indulge myself. The selection is so vast. I took many photos so you can judge yourself. I had oysters in the half shell, for those sometimes you have to wait. Sashimi of salmon and tuna. On the right hand side you will find tempura of vegetables, rice with vegetables, beef and pork and chicken... More

If you would like to take some friends for something different, this is the place. The food is very good, and because it is a buffet you can choose what you want when you want it is really nice. Just like most Japanese restaurants, one tends to think that ohh I will have a little of everything... well here it... More

If you are a lover of sushi you have to check this place out. The food is fantastic and you can eat as much as you want for a fixed charge. Great selection of fresh sashimi and sushi and other types of seafood. The place is busy, which is always a good sign but is fairly big so an accomodate... More
