“Absolutely fantastic authentic Japanese food & great service.”
Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is really great & we go there several times a week. BYO & licenced. The food is amazing. Please, do yourself a favour - try it. If you have be never had fish cheeks, try them here. No bones & fantastic flavor & the sashimi is to die for. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Tell them Mr Daryl sent you!

“Exquisite food”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Mino is a small unassuming restaurant with fabulous food. We chose the Kaiseki $59 a head menu which you need to pre order. Be warned if you aren't a big eater, there's a lot of food. Of course you don't have to eat everything - we did because everything was so delicious and we felt very full afterwards. IThey do offer a smaller $43 a head menu. Ingredients were high quality, presentation lovely and the service attentive. On a Saturday lunch time the restaurant was fairly quiet, decor could be improved but it is the food you visit this restaurant for. I have recommended this restaurant to a number of friends and we will certainly be returning.

“The best salmon carpaccio in Mosman... Actually the best Japanese in Mosman full stop.”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

Best Japanese in the lower North Shore.
Mino is for us just the best Japanese in Sydney's lower North Shore. The menu selection is fantastic and the quality and technique of the chef Joshi is just the best. You can try tempuras at other places and feel sick. At Mino's you enjoy it, prepared with good quality ingredients and serviced in grea pottery custom made for Mino's. The special menu is just delicious... The sirloin wa gu is so well prepared that you want to have more and more. Fabiola leads the service team who look after you with personalised quality of service that encourage you to come back again and again. What a great place in the heart of Mosman. A superior quality Japanese food, quality service, extremely clean and well priced.
A real gem.

“delightful japanese - reasonably priced”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

browsed Japanese restaurants on biz trip to Sydney looking for one that would appeal. Chose Mino based on menu and was not disappointed. Chose the $59 Kaiseki Mino. started with taster of fish and plum wine followed by octopus and cuttlefish salad with sweet miso dressing
then sashimi, assorted entree (five small portions on one plate)

Grilled ocean perch with Japanese yuzu (citrus)pepper ponzu sauce and zucchini flower stuffed in prawn and lotus root mince - tempura style - bit rich - mains - by this stage it was just too much - steamed baramundi with a delicately flavoured green salad, rice and miso soup. my choice of dessert was fruit, red bean ice cream and a panna cotta with a molassesy type of topping
lovely meal great value - nice choice of Sakes - good service, interesting waitresses - definitely worth a return visit to keep trying the other options on the menu!

“Fantastic and unpretentious”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

I've been to both Mino's – the new one at Willoughby and this one at Mosman. It really is amazing Japanese food at a good price. Sake is great as well.

Get the set menu, or get the waiter to recommend the dishes to you. Friendly service and really good value for the calibre of food they serve.
