This is my heaven! All I can eat sushi what more can one ask for. The cooked food is good also. Sushi is where it's at!

The quality of Minado´s seafood has been going down for the past years. I used to go three to four times a year with my family. But last time I had dinner there will be probably the last time. Understandably a buffet should be expected to fulfill the minimum expectations of customers. Despite the vriety of sushi and sashimi, the... More

Was excited to find a supposed fantastic Japanese/Sushi buffet. The cost is $30.99 per person plus $1.99 for soda - so not exactly cheap for a buffet. Our first trip to get food we tried most of the sushi offerings. Well, it was better than your typical Chinese buffet with sushi, but not up to the standard you would expect... More

I've driven past this place for over a year and finally on my day off decided to try it. I went with my friend for lunch and was a little nervous about the $20 charge for lunch but when I saw what they offered, I can tell why. There was well over 20+ varieties of sushi. They offered soups and... More

Not a place for people with shellfish allergies; the miso soup is so-so, but I tried a salad and did not know shell fish was in it-asked the waitstaff and they didn't know either. I wouldn't chance it again for business or pleasure. A NO.

This is strictly buffet style dining. OK so personally it's something I need to be in the mood to do. But once that hurdle is overcome, it's quite a fun place. It's a very large restaurant but on a Saturday night it is full. That's OK because once you're seated you aren't crowded with other diners. However, turn signals and... More

Good food, lots of it, fresh. There's no atmosphere if you're looking for a romantic dining experience but if you're looking to eat lots and lots and are with a group of people, you'll have fun!

This is a good Asian seafood buffet. Good sushi selection, raw bar serves oyster, snow crab legs, and cocktail shrimp. They have a station for crepes and noodles. Place is huge and clean. Their foods are very fresh, we visit there almost every month. If you like sushi and seafood go there. If you like beef and potato don't waste... More
