We used to visit Minado 3-4 years ago and I still remember the high-end experience that is usually not part of Asian Buffets. Food was amazing and worth the money spent. This time I decided to treat my family to Minado experience and I was very disappointed: over years the price went up and quality of food magically disappeared. I... More

A friend wanted to take me out for a "thank you: dinner so he selected this place. I was very impressed with the huge selection of Sushi items and other Asian dishes. I took one of a Sushi item or if a "dish" a very small spoonful to make sure I liked it and wouldn't waste any food. There were... More

We haven't been to Minado in Little Ferry in 3 years. Big selection but food was cold and Sushi was unappealing. To much salt, shrimp dried out. As for the crepes no chocolate chips or Nutella only water downed chocolate syrup yuk. Fruit used is frozen not fresh for crepes. For the price there are better places to go.

We like Minado restaurants a lot. So do our children and grandchildren. We frequently visit their locations in Morris Plains, NJ and Hempstead, NY. It is always a treat we all look forward to. Yesterday we visited the Little Ferry, NJ location because it happened to be on our route home. Service was OK, but the food left a lot... More

I was a little leery about eating here as most sushi buffets have a small selection the most basic sushi, but I was pleasantly surprised. They had a large variety of specialty sushi rolls to choose from as well as lots of other seafood & salad items. Bring a large appetite and you won't leave hungry or unsatisfied.

This Japanese restaurant has an amazing selection of well-prepared, fresh sushi. It's a buffet so you definitely get your money's worth and is a great to try a bunch of different sushi rolls instead of having to commit to only a few. They also have hot food that is delicious If you go for lunch, it's significantly cheaper but they... More

Huge selection of sushi (sashimi,rolls,sushi) and seafood, meats, noodles, rice, crab legs and much much more. A bit pricey but worth experiencing at least one time. Well run establishment, good friendly service, plenty of comfortable seating. Note the hours listed here on trip advisor are incorrect - the restaurant closes between lunch and dinner daily. Go hungry !

It's a nice place to take visitors from abroad. They can see and choose what they want for themselves. Lunch price is very reasonable. Good to go in a group. You don't have to wait to order the food. The food is all there waiting for you!
