“Food was real good but don't expect service”
Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

This is probably one of the bestJapanese a la carte buffet that I ever dine in Singapore. Order as much as you like. Excluding drinks and alcoholic beverages. Approx $40 inclusive taxes per person.
Must try items - sashimi menu, prawn tempura and curry udon.
I would rate this restaurant very good experience.

The Service wasn't attentive and waitress always forgotten what order. Not paying attention to table. Fail to top up green tea. This probably because we have more than 20 persons. Service and attention to details must be consistent.

“Good Japanese restaurant”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

Japanese restaurant offering an extensive menu at a reasonable all-in price. Diners are given 4 types of order forms to indicate their choices of raw seafood items, grilled dishes, etc. They can send additional orders thereafter. Desserts are available -- with an additional charge! We found the service good at first, but slower and less efficient as the restaurant became more crowded. Sashimi choices are rather limited, fresh-tasting and generally good in quality but not in presentation. Ambience and decor are satisfactory.

“Great value Japanese all-you-can-eat buffet”
Reviewed September 24, 2011

I have patronised Minori for a number of years now and have always found their food to be good value for money. The quality is above average and the service is acceptable, considering that each person expects to pay about S$50 nett for all you can eat sashimi. If you are looking for a place to pig out on Japanese food staples, this is the place for you.

Reviewed September 9, 2008

Great japanese food here. We did the all-you-can-eat deal at $33 per head which we thought was great value. Staff are very attentive indeed, and we took our time to enjoy a varied menu. The food arrives just minutes after you've ordered it and there is a wide choice.
