My 1st visit here and the 1st impression was good as the restaurant was spacious and well decorated. There wasn't any bad smell even in the restroom. Overall I was happy with salad bar and the nood bar because of the varities offered. But the sushi was not tasty, not bad though. At least it is what you can expect... More

All of the food is high quality and well prepared. An upgrade to... More

Whether for business, family, or friends this is the place for all you can eat sushi. There are other dishes as well, but we love the sushi.

Minado is a staple for our family. Those of us who love sushi can find all our favorite rolls and sushi, and those who prefer cooked food can enjoy a meal as well! I've been here dozens of times over several years, and I've never had anything but a great experience. This is the best all-you-can-eat Sushi I've ever had...... More

This restaurant is by far one of the best I've been to! Great service, awesome staff and amazing food. Hygiene is impeccable and never an empty tray in any of the buffet areas. Staff is super quick and friendly. There is so much food variety, not just seafood. They have the best sushi, the best soups, the best teriyaki chicken... More

Minado is a wonderful Japanese restaurant that offers a buffet including many kinds of sushi and a good selection of items. Their food is fresh and full of flavor. We've brought friends and family for lunch, and everyone has enjoyed their meal. The cost is more than we would normally pay, but it's well worth it! A great restaurant for... More

By far the best sushi I have had outside of Japan! I go for lunch, because dinner is a bit pricey. Never been disappointed.

this is a very unique asian buffet in that it has a great variety of quality selections. I think the difference is that dishes are put out in small amounts and replaced frequently. dishes are beautifully displayed and artfully arranged. This is not your ordinary buffet where you eat cheap and a lot as it is not inexpensive. Quality rarely... More
