Been to Japan many times and this is the closest I've found in Halifax - nice and cozy- traditional authentic food- and the owner was setting up Japanese cuisine in Halifax before anyone else.

My passion is sushi/sashimi but my partner is what I'd call a 'tonkatsu tourist'. Minato has hands down the best tonkatsu we've ever had, and I'm surprised more people aren't singing its praises. Perfect, big juicy cutlets and delicious sides for a great price. Also, don't sleep on the sashimi salad (Hae dup bap), it's excellent and the spicy sauce is delicious, so refreshing in the summer.

A lovely off street family restaurant, excellent Japanese cuisine. Charming space too.
The best sushi in Halfax--bar none. James and his wife run the entire show and are bith sweet/shy but talented. The place isn't fancy but we don't care. It is clean and the food is the best!!

A quaint mom n pop operation with an authentic feel. I was really pleased with the polite service, delicious sushi and it was great to watch the sushi being crafted right in front of me. Definitely the best no-fuss sushi in Halifax.

This restaurant was recommended to us by Japanese friend of ours. We love it and I think it's definitely the best bang for your buck.

Love the rolls and nigiri here. As an unfortunate person with sesame and peanut allergy, and a boyfriend with celiac, I can say minato is great at safely handling allergens. Never had a problem there, very genuine staff and always go when in town.

Very fresh, very reasonably priced. Simple sushi done very well. Best sushi and Korean food in Halifax imo.

James made our sushi and the sushi was unique and felt very comfortable and cozy. Wasn't rushed and enjoyed eating. Would definitely come back for the ramen as well.
