Fast and cheap. Good place for a quick lunch on Broadway. Not going to win any awards, but not going to be written up by the food inspectors either.

The new space is quite a bit smaller but the food is good value. Try the dragon roll and the minato roll for a treat. The sashimi cuts are thick and sizes are generous. The gomae and tempura are classic and tasty.

Customer service is very good; for the price you can't go wrong with this place. Only thing negative is the small size of the restaurant (a lot smaller than their previous premises).

Busy at lunch but the service was prompt and we didn't have to wait long for food. Enjoyed the Goma Ae, Dynamite roll and spicy California roll.

The new location of Minato (kitty-corner to the previous) is a little smaller, but seems otherwise unchanged. The sushi is fresh and the sashimi is great. We have ordered platters for groups a couple of times, and they are generous, fresh and delicious. Good value....More

Great sushi rolls, highly recommend the spicy tuna rolls. Battered shrimp also very good. Decent selection of Sake. Dishes are generous so recommend not ordering too many!

This place was close to where we were staying. Lunch special sounded appealing. Busy - had to wait for a table. We found the sushi good, but too heavy on the rice for our taste.

I visited this place for a lunch business meeting. The food and service was all amazing (we only tried the maki sushi, sashimi and rolls). Everything was absolutely delicious. The place was packed for lunch, but the service was still quick...we ordered and ate in...More

Don't misunderstand: this is not Tojo's or Nobu, but Minato serves up pretty good sushi in a nice friendly atmosphere accompanied by stellar service! Owned by a hardworking ever present family, this restaurant offers a great assortment of both extremely fresh sushi and a-la carte...More
