If you're really in the mood for a an extra helping of tempura, sushi, or any type of Japanese food, this is the place for you. The buffet has such a great selection that you want to keep going back for more. The environment is classy, and there are ample tables so you will definitely get seated right away.

If you're anything like me and have a fondness for sushi and sashimi, then I'd definitely suggest you go to Minado if you haven't already done so. The main attraction of the Japanese buffet is definitely the sushi and sashimi, of which there are many kinds---they have high-quality tuna, red snapper, California rolls, Philadelphia rolls, volcano rolls, and pretty much anything that will cater to the tastes of even the most particular connoisseur. There's a nice selection of fish, vegetables, tempura, and dimsum at the buffet as well. Though I'm not very fond of desserts, the variety of cakes and especially the green tea ice cream are a nice finish to an amazing meal.

The service is very efficient, and the atmosphere is clean and inviting. I like to go to Minado with family and friends, and everybody loves to rave about even the prospect of eating there. Unfortunately, because the restaurant is Japanese cuisine, the cost is rather steep ($44/person the last time I went), and it depends on what time and day you go. Despite the cost, the experience is worth every penny.

Minado is a Japanese buffet with a very nice setting for family dinners or celebrations. Their food is exceptional. Fresh seafood, great sushi, and best of all it's all you can eat. My family and I have been going to this place for years now and it's never been disappointing.

This is a buffet style restaurant. It is very clean and the food is fresh. There is a good vareity of food and the sushi is great. The buffet is expensive for dinner but you can't beat the lunch time prices. This restaurant was attached to a hotel but it did not bother me. There is also a Minado in Morris Plains. That one is a lot nicer inside but the food is the same.

I have now been her a few times with several people each time. The buffet is HUGH, the selection is very good with plenty of sushi to try, as well as a large selection of fried foods. Raw clams and shrimp were plentiful, and the crepes made the dessert bar complete. Prices, even with plenty of Plum wine are VERY reasonable.

This sushi/seafood buffet is excellent !! They have a wide variety of sushi and rolls as well as salads, a hot buffet and desserts and fruit. They could use a better variety of sashimi, but as long as they have salmon and tuna I guess that could do. We are usually seated quickly and the most we ever waited was 15 minutes. Service is fine, never had a problem, but sometimes you can get a grumpy waitress who takes forever with your drink order (you know who you are waitress). Sometimes you get a great waitress who remembers you like it happened to us. The poor girl was very busy and forgot to bring the last order of sake. We went back about 3 weeks later and she was our waitress again. Well, she brings over a large hot sake and tells us it's on her because she forgot the order last time...now that got her a GREAT tip !!

It's a great place to go and enjoy some good food at a decent price. They don't time you like at other all-you-can-eat japanese places, but some of the wait staff (same grumpy waitress) shows the manager when you don't eat all your rice). oh well...if you guys had a better selection of sashimi then people would not need to waste rice. It's cheap anyway so get over it !!!

Go to Minado and enjoy a great time with sushi to boot !!!

Cons: not a great place for bigger children that don't like sushi and seafood since they'll pay to eat almost nothing

Review for NYC location. We arrived with a group of 15 and was seated promptly. The variety of sushi and cooked food was impressive. Food was tasty and fresh. We had friendly and attentive service. We didn't feel rushed and was glad there were no "rules" to the all-u-can-eat some other Japanese restaurants have. This is a great place for kids and groups because the restaurant is huge. For the price you pay this is definitely a great all-u-can-eat deal especially in NYC.

This review is for the NYC Location. I went there last night with 3 friends and my wife. 1. BAD SERVICE, the host was not very accommodating at all, and when we asked for another table, we were refused and the place was empty, we were there only for 1.5 hours when the waitress gave us the bill, and we didn't even ask for it. 2. even WORST FOOD, the SUSHI WAS NOT FRESH, and the SASHIMI was basically SCRAPS lefted over from making the sushi, they didn't even bother prettying up, just thrown on the traps. the COOKED STUFF were OVERCOOKED, the lobster tail was DRY, and CRAB melted in your mouth like mashed potatoes, the salads and dessert looked like they were lunchtime leftovers.

I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the wide variety of dishes. I loved the soba bar and the huge sushi bar. The service was very good.

Simply put, the food was awesome. There was a wide variety so there is something for everyone. I didn't expect such high quality and delicious food from a buffet, but the food was unbelieveable....fresh and gourmet and prepared in front of you....and I highly recommend the lobster.
