“The most reliable buffet”
Reviewed July 17, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I usually go here for their dinner buffet and i must say the food is always fresh. In most buffets the freshness of food depends on what time of the day you go or if its busy or not, but minados always has hot steamy and fresh food. Both their sushi and other entrees are amazing and the price point isnt too bad with regards to the variety of food they serve. By the way i love their bite size tiramasu..

“Best sushi buffet in Long Island”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

I've been going to Minados for years. It's one of the pricier buffets on Long Island, and I usually go on the weekends where its $33 per person.

PROS: If you like sushi, this is heaven. There are rows upon rows of sushi. So when I want to binge on sushi, there's no place comparable. If you just eat sushi, you'll easily make up the $33 per person. In other sushi takeout places, I could spend $20. But this place has high quality sushi with no limits. The other items are the crab legs, oysters and teriyaki steaks. They also have crepes that are custom made and a variety of udon soups.

CONS: Not much else outside of steak and sushi. You're gonna have to literally stand by the oyster/crab leg stations as they are always out of this stuff. This buffet is pricy if you don't like sushi.

Overall, it's a great go-to place for sushi. There are times when I'm craving sushi and this is my favorite place to binge. If you don't like sushi, I don't think this place is worth it.

I give one less star because the crab legs/oysters are almost always out unless you park yourself by the crab leg/oyster station. But if I'm craving oysters/crab legs, there are other places that I go to for that...
