A mark of a good sushi spot is whether they offer white ginger which they do. Service is excellent and the sushi is very good

Celebrating my Dad's visit from Hawaii, we surrounded him and Minato's for a special dinner. My contribution was my 3 favorites: shitake mushroom salad, shrimp tempura and a large sashimi. The headmaster Soon, surprised us with a couple of plates with his special sashimi fish and beef....outstanding! What a great place to satisfy your craving for tastie food.

I took some visitors here for a lunch. They eat sushi more often than I do and they were pleased with their selection. I ordered the lunch equivalent of a bento box and it was very good with miso soup and tempura in addition to selected sushi. I cannot comment on dinner but I am sure the quality is consistent....

Have only been here a couple of times but enjoyed the food and service was good. You are seated in private rooms, which is very nice. We live in Powell River.

Whenever I want to give my wife a break from cooking, and we both want to eat well, we head to Minato's. We've known the owners since day one in the Rodmay Hotel and they never have disappointed us yet. My "gimme" are the prawn tempura, shitake mushroom salad and deluxe sashimi. Marian goes for a variety of rolls. It's... More

Way to little for what you should have to pay $16 for a roll, get serious. It costs way less in Gibson and taste way much better plus I mean the amount of food that you get at Minato compared to going to place like say Sima sushi, they have no passion or love what they put it into their... More

This was as good as we've had elsewhere. We thought the prices were a little high. The service was a bit slow but they were very busy. All tatami rooms.
