Minado's. It's not the buffet part that takes me here altho I do love that part....its the variety. They have 3 large sections.....hot foods, salads (many you have never seen before) and of course the sushi and sashimi. There is also a Hibachi, noodle section and a counter to make dessert crepes. The hot foods are a different collection of... More

Visit often for lunch and dinner. Good service and delicious seafood. Wide selection of sushi and love the fresh sashimi! Kid friendly which is a big plus since I have a toddler and infant.

For many years, Minado offered quality foods. Last few years the quality has degraded noticeably and not wanting to come back. We had dinner buffet at Minado last night and noticed how much they have changed in not so nice way. They used to have a good selection of sushi such as sea urchin roe - Uni. Along with some...

When Minado opened many years ago, they used serve good quality sushi and some sashimi. After many years the quality has degraded quite a bit. And same time the price has gone up quite a bit. If you want to have both sushi/sashimi and some hot Asians foods this might be a place for you.

I am a newer fan of sushi but a little picky! Minado's has a great selection and the food was awesome! Great opportunity to try a lot of different food! Desert was okay but the main dishes were very well prepared! Will definitely go again!

Tons of options that are well prepared. For a buffet, they manage to really maintain quality. There is also an udon noodle station, crepe station, and a "hibachi" station (basically a flat top where you can get things cooked for you like scallops or shrimp). The sushi selection is gigantic and all really good. Dinner is over $30 pp however,... More

Minado us one of our favorite sushi places. Buffet and all you care to eat is the style. Their presentation and variety is unmatched. It's not an inexpensive dinner but one definitely gets ones money worth if you love sushi. There is also a huge salad/ cold side bar, soups like miso, and hot items as well as a hibachi.... More

Went to Minado with my three children. Right off I thought wow they have quite a selection of sushi but after eating a few pieces I realized the quality was poor and not the freshest so we stopped eating. Well we all were up all night really sick. I called the restaurant this morning and they refuse to believe we... More

I always used to think...."Sushi buffet??!! - YUCK. How fresh and good could THAT be?" BUT I've changed my mind. There were at least 6 chefs making sushi constantly. Great sushi. At least 100 diners in there, eating sushi, so the chefs had to refresh it all OFTEN. Yum. Will return again and again.

I've been here many times and never had a disappointing meal. Lots to choose from, even if you don't like raw sushi. Go for lunch to get a real bargain.
