My husband and I try and go once a Month. The food is amazing. We have traveled to different cities,and by far Minato's has the freshest sushi around. The portions are bigger than average. The prices are fair.
ate there for first time yesterday . the food was awesome ambiance nice my tempura and terriaki were well done miso soup very nice and great cucumer salad with crab.WE are locals and plan on having a n ongoing relationship with minato
Food was fair. The Philly rolls were decent. The Salmon sashimi was very below-average. Miso soup was fine. The service was slow and white rice ordered was never brought over.
Ambience was more along the lines of a sports bar.
The prices are Nobu-high, but without the food or service to match. A must miss.
Excellent food and excellent service. I have eaten sushi/sashimi at places all over California and none compare to the freshness of Minato. I live in Arizona now and travel out to Laughlin at least once a month to Minato's. Great Salmon, Tuna and Albacore sashimi. Great rainbow roll.
SUSHI LIKE IT WAS RIGHT ON THE COAST: We ordered a california, tuna, cucumber, philly, and spicy tuna/eel roll and the check was barely over $30. Great prices, great sushi, great service. The sushi chefs were friendly and so was the waitress. Can't resist good sushi.
A friend and I tried Minato when we were on a business trip to nearby Kingman. I was astounded. I live in San Francisco -- and have also lived in London, New York, Boston, and Philadelphia -- and this was some of the best sushi I've ever had. We started out with a cucumber salad topped with shredded crab and a nicely understated dressing, then a small bowl of miso soup. The tempura was light and crispy and hot, not greasy at all. Then came the sushi! The temperature was perfect, and on cooked items -- omelet and unagi -- the topping was still warm atop the perfectly seasoned rice. Everything tasted fresh and simple, so that the natural flavors came out. Also, the portions were VERY generous. Each piece of sushi was twice the size you'd get in San Francisco (for the same price). I wish I'd known that ahead of time, because it killed me not to be able to finish what was on my plate -- it was so delicious. The atmosphere was warm and comfortable; everyone who came in seemed to be a regular; two construction workers were wolfing down spicy tuna rolls at the bar and catching up on news and gossip with the chefs. I would absolutely, positively, definitely go back.
