Good food, Great deal!!. 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.
Sushi at a great price !!.
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 !!!
Nice Selection, Good Price. 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.
UNBELIEVABLY BAD. 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.
fresh food---lots of it!. 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.
Top Notch. 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.
