We love coming here for a great satisfying lunch! I especially like the great selection of salads which are hard to find in other Japanese restaurants in such a wide variety. Their miso soup and veggie dumplings are also great. I rarely try sushi or...More

We had a delicious meal. Sushis, salads, fish and vegetables, even fruits and ice-cream. Sashimis of salomon and tuna were so fresh. In the evening they serve ousters as many as you want. We sat there and licked our lips and fingers. Wonderful place.

We have visited Minado several times. It has always been busy because of the food selection and modest price. However, our most recent trip was not as pleasant as the ones before. Minado was so overcrowded that it was literally difficult to get to the...More

Minado is a chain and we visited it in two states. This place has a lot better selection and better quality (more expensive too) than in PA. The only problem is that it is a bit small for the variety of dishes and huge number...More

While a bit pricey this all you can eat buffet is really good. All of the sushi is fresh and there are heaps of things to choose from. To top it all off there is a chocolate fountain...mmm chocolate.

So a young friend from Tokyo was visiting, and I couldn't resist taking him to Minado. He's a big eater, which helps. We had more or less one of every makimono, plus a selection of other stuff. His comment (in Japanese, so of course nobody...More

I was non-committal about sushi until we found Minados. The variety, quality of this seafood restaurant keeps me returning. I focus on the sushi, but the salads and the cooked offerings I've tried were good as well. The jasmine tea is delightful, though you can...More

Had the lunch buffet - there is a tremendous variety of hot foods, salad, sushi and desserts to pick from. The restaurant is huge. My favorite is the hot foods - very tasty but a little salty. The salad offerings are varied and fresh. The...More

I'm pretty sure they do, but unless you have a very large party, I doubt you'll need it. The place is enormous.
