They offer all the dishes that you have come accustomed to ordering I'm sure. Prices are normal for a Japanese Restaurant. Service was great! Food was fantastic. Help was very helpful and eager to make our dining experience one that we would remember. Cost was reasonable for our family! This one you must try. We were pleasantly surprised.

Our son flew in to surprise his mother on our Anniversary which was the day before Thanksgiving. She was surprised and the food was great. The server was not a herself knowledgeable about some of what we ordered but she went back to the chef and found out. Most of us had sushi and sashimi all of it very good.... More

This restaurant was a pleasant find. We are not big into Casino restaurants so we went to Minato which is on the top floor of a strip mall on Casino Drive. The food was delicious. We tried the scallop deluxe, the lobster deluxe and a couple of sushi rolls. The scallop and lobster dishes were warm and not typical of... More

A surprisingly good Japanese/Korean restaurant in the desert. Sushi was tasty, hot dishes good and flavorful. Across the street from 2 major casinos easy to access. Slightly small and noisy, sushi bar was very small. Make a reservation.

This was surprisingly outstanding sushi and sashimi! I have eaten sushi and sashimi in hundreds of restaurants around the world and this restaurant can hold its own among the best. The seafood is flown in fresh daily and never frozen. They brought fresh wasabi to the table. FRESH, not that paste stuff. They import it from Japan which is very... More

Heard this place was good, but after a dinner here I can say it i one of the best sashimi places I have ever enjoyed a meal. Salmon, tuna, octopus delivered quickly by the staff was cold and fresh. TONS OF IT!!!! But what made it special was the wasabi relish they brought out in place of the mixed powdered... More

My wife and I enjoyed a very good dinner at Minato. Service was fast. Ordered three rolls Lobster Roll, Orange Crush and Kingman, all three were excellent. We miss our favorite sushi restaurant in San Diego County but Minato fits the bill nicely. We'll be back.

Once again this year we had a fantastic experience. Sushi was great. Service is excellent. Beer is cold. Interior is clean and organized. Staff is really fun to be around. Must hit this one when in town.

We went there for lunch and it was not crowded at all so the service was prompt and friendly. I had a Teriyaki Chicken Bento and my wife had a Kimchi(Korean fermented cabbage) Stew. They were excellent. My Bento included Miso soup and a small cucumber salad. The only surprise and a somewhat negative thing was that we were charged... More

Park behind the place and walk around to the left, it will save you 3 flights of stairs. Food is amazing and the people are so nice. Sent 3 hours eating and 2 more chatting. Sushi is okay. Dinner for two will feed four! Appetizers will fill you up, but are so good you have to splurge!

Thank LovingLaughlin
