There’s something especially satisfying about Japanese cuisine. And where better to get a fine feast than at Minato Sushi in downtown Halifax? It is a comfortable restaurant in a neat old house where you can watch the chef in action. The extensive menu also includes Korean dishes.
We start our meal with Gyoza ($5.95 for five) – delicious and light vegetable dumplings with a tempura sauce. Our entrées come with Akadashi Soup, made of red soybean paste, bonito broth, tofu and seaweed. It is delicate and soothing.
My pal has the Sashimi Dinner ($19.50), a large assortment of raw fish on a salad. This stunning arrangement of fresh tuna, salmon, surf clam, octopus and yellowtail is excellent.
My Yokohama Dinner ($19.50) is equally beautiful and fresh with10 pieces of nigiri – seafood on rice – including barbecued eel, tuna, salmon, surf clam, red snapper and shrimp. There are also six salmon rolls. What a treat.
Our servers are personable and prompt. They seem as happy to be here as we are.
The Coast: Minato is cozy but there’s enough space to put down your shopping bags and enjoy some good sushi. Maki, sashimi and other Japanese treats are well represented, but leave room for their spicy Korean dishes, including bee-bim-bap and noodles.
Ben B: So if you’re looking for the best vegetable dragon maki in town, it’s right here.
Sarah H: The Spider Roll is great, and they have a great selection of unique rolls to choose from, along with all of your other Japanese fair.
Laura P: Minato may close its doors for the month of October, but with a sudden rebirth of sushi desire– I’ll sweat out the wait.
Tyler Childs: This is very food. It’s a lot of food and sometimes I can’t always finish it all. 5/5 would food again.
Andres Flores: Overall Excellent
Steven Verbeek: I live this place, I go there at least a month and get vegetable dragon roll. I just love the sauce they put on it.
Marie: BEST sushi and Ginger salad in the city!!!! Try the veg dragon roll too!
Cozy and quiet spot for some excellent sushi! All of the maki and sashimi we tried was fresh and delicious. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Would definitely recommend to real sushi lovers.
Love this gem of a place! They give such big portions of fish for their nigiri and their rice is always fresh. They also don't skimp out on their ginger, they must make their pickled ginger themselves because the pieces are huge! I also find that the soy sauce they give is tastier, some sushi restaurants water down their soy sauce. Little details like that make all the difference! Plus the owner is super kind :-)
Delicious food in a cozy setting. Will definitely be back
Took my mother here for lunch and she and I loved it. Quant little restaurant with all the good sushi you would expect. Will be going back soon.
The BEST sushi in Halifax! Fresh, consistent, and always made with great care.
Best sushi in Halifax. Great owners who are kind and provide a great welcoming dining experience.
This is absolutely the best sushi ever. The veggie dragon Maki is my favorite and is mouthwatering; the sweet potato tempura, the avocado, the signature sweet sauce and the best spicy sauce I've ever had at a sushi place. Highly recommended!
The coziest sushi spot in Halifax. Excellent food, excellent service. Highly recommend!
Perfect. The man who is out front always, who I'm assuming is the owner, is very pleasant. Always a quick, professional, and polite experience. His wife also works there and is out front from time to time, she's always very pleasant as well. Never messes up my order, the food is always extremely fresh and tastes great. This is my go to for sushi in Halifax.
Quality ingredients and skilled chefs, go-to spot when looking for a great meal with none of the frills.
