Awesome. I lived in Japan for 10 years in the countryside. This wonderful restaurant made me feel like I was home there once again. Japanese food was truly authentic mom and pop Japanese style. The hosts were Korean but reminded me of several shops we often visited run by Ojisans and Obaasans. (Grandpas and Grandmas) beautiful sushi.

Minato’s is our go to sushi restaurant in Halifax. The owner and his wife are the best!
If you haven’t been, you’re missing out!

I wish I could rate this restaurant more than once. Every visit is perfect. Every dish is delicious. It feels like your in a spot only you are lucky enough to know about, but you're right off Spring Garden.
Quite, peaceful, table for one or among friends, this is perfect sushi zen bliss.
*Google asked me to update my review but they didnt let me add another star, so heres my own 🌟**

This was my first visit here and it didn't disappoint. I walked into a cozy environment that felt warm and inviting, and was quietly and kindly welcomed. As I perused the menu. I could hear the table in front of me pretty much moaning over how delicious their sushi and Udon bowls were. This made the visit even more promising and, it didn't disappoint.
The food was simple and utterly delicious! It was nicely presented and it was served in/on unique and pretty bowls and dishes.
The service was polite and professional but warm and welcoming at the same time.
Prices were very reasonable, which was a nice break from the prices that are often encountered now a days in restaurants.
Overall, a wonderful (and very tasty!!) experience and highly recommend this restaurant!

This is a darling authentic sushi house. The owner 'James' and his lovely wife are Japanese and have been at this site for over 21 years. This is the real deal folks. Small, tidy and delightfully decorated with memorabilia from 🇯🇵. Superb 🍣. Loved it!

We recently discovered this hidden gem on Queen street. The ingredients are very fresh and the presentation is excellent, this has been my best sushi experience in the HRM. I’ve returned to my west coast sushi standards as soon as the first course hit the table and the excellent standard continued throughout our meal.

Food was yummy and the owner/worker seems to be a authentic Japanese chef. Price was pretty decent and the shop have a cute little look to it.

Underrated Sushi restaurant in Halifax. The owners are very nice and friendly and the food was delicious and nicely presented. This is one of my favourite sushi places in the town.

Some of the best shuhi I have had in some time. Well prepared and wonderfully tasty fish delight.
