If's sad to say but this kind of value for money is extremely rare in Sydney. Typically restaurants are overpriced for the food or service they provide.

It is a small restaurant but with a good atmosphere. The service is very courteous and non-intrusive.
We were there for lunch and walked away with a smile on our faces; a menu of about 5 dishes (a good combo of Japanese cuisine) for AUD$30 per person.

It was our first visit to Sydney in eight years and we asked friends to recommend a good local restaurant where we could repay their hospitality.
What a wonderful surprise Mino turned out to be.
Situated on a busy road and having a quite narrow entry first impressions are a little misleading. Once inside the positives appear in rapid succession. Staff are friendly and helpful and remain so throughout our meal. They appear just at the right moment but never become intrusive.
Mino has quite a varied menu as well as a Specials list. You may make a selection from a number of banquets which looked very appealing but we opted for the a la carte. Our entrees of Tempura, Sashimi, Dumplings and Edinami Beans were all excellent.Our friends suggested the Seafood Hotpot for a main. What a great choice. Sublime broth with plenty of seafood and vegetables made this a dish to remember. Our other mains were Wagyu beef and Teriyaki chicken both of which were excellently prepared and presented.
The final surprise of the night was the Bill. Value indeed which means we'll need to revisit again well within eight years.

I had the opportunity to go to Mino's twice in a week. Once with a work function and next with my partner. Both times the food was excellent quality and consistent in presentation. I had the tempura which is always the testing ground. If the batter is soggy or too bready I won't return. This was not the case and the tempura was very good. On both occasions I had the sashimi plate. Quality fish, fresh and tasty. The snapper was sold out so we had the grilled barramundi. Very good. All the dishes that were ordered at the work function were excellent. The restaurant is very busy so I do recommend making a reservation. Sake and beer is available and is BYO. I was impressed with the Sake menu as well. I will return.

Just a simple, but excellent dining experience. Superb food, great service, family friendly, easy parking, great wine and Sake menu. Awesome!

Really this has everything going for it. We hadn't been back there for about 2 years, but last nights dinner was so good we will definitely be frequenting more often - so if you could make sure you don't all go there on the nights we want to, that would be very convenient, thanks. :-)

Excellent team at Mino and the young chef prepares wonderful dishes from fresh ingredients with great accompaniments. A real treasure in Mosman, especially if you've lived for any time in Japan. Highly recommend the seafood and the meat dishes are superb.
