This is hands down the best buffet restaurant. Quality Japanese food is served here. There is a big sushi stand. Food is AMAZING! Pricey though. It's $33.95 for an adult and a kid is charged half price as an adult.

Always a great meal. My kids love it and are only 1/4 of the price. Sushi is good and fresh. The service has always been very good.

I visited Minado for the first time for my friends graduation dinner. It was so delicious. The buffet had a variation of different seafood, salads, desserts and crêpes even! The service was lovely as well.

Our Korean friends brought us here. Wow! I loved it! We were seated right away, only to get up to get food. What an array of food. Peculiar salads, TONS of sushi, soups, hot entrees and light dessert. Clean, well done buffet. This is pricy place, like $18 per lunch, but I might be wrong because our friends picked up... More

Minados is an all you can eat sushi/Asian buffet. Depending on what night you get there, the sushi can range from acceptable to quite good. They have some interesting rolls, great hot foods and excellent salads. Price per adult with tip is @ $35 for dinner. You will absolutely get your money's worth.

Been here many times! This was my choice for Father's Day diner. Always clean and always fresh. I will say quality has increased and you will only find a buffet like this in a major casino. For $33.95 for a adult you can consume that in there extensive sushi selection. Hot and cold selections along with whatever you may desire.... More

My brother and his family love dining at this chain Japanese buffet restaurant as a result we have been coming here for years. The service was efficient and the large dinning and buffet area was always very clean; serving utensils were changed frequently and serving areas wiped down. Weekends were always very crowded with large groups and families. I prefer... More

We went here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. This place is decent for what you pay. There was a large variety of seafood. The short ribs were amazing, but the sushi was mediocre.The dessert section was delicious. The service was efficient, but made us feel a little rushed when we were first seated. We didn't even get a chance... More
