Stopped in for lunch. This place is huge. It has a very industrial feel. The service was great and the food was very good. Those if you that read my reviews know that I’m a sushi snob. This place has a TON of options on their sushi buffet. The sheer amount of options was great – the sushi itself was... More

I am happy that this restaurant is close to my home. When I have a Japanese food craving, I can go either to nearby Oga's (very highly rated, terrific food, pretty expensive) or to nearby Minado. The variety of food items at Minado is amazing. The quality is excellent for a buffet, as good as I have had at modestly... More

I have been here several times for lunch and always enjoyed it. Most recently, I went for dinner and the seafood was so good I could barely get to the sushi. Some great fish and crab cakes. The hot portion of the buffet also had some outstanding meats including teriyaki beef, bacon-wrapped jalapenos, and pork. Just outstanding quality to the... More

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.
