Minado is a good Chinese/Japanese buffet. It is still much better than many similar restaurants. However, visiting this place many times over many years, we can see a decline. Some dishes are no longer available, and many rolls having more rice than seafood. It is...More

We come here very often in the evenings. We especially love the raw oysters on the half shell and the crab legs. Also nice because we can bring our own sake and they heat it for us.
