Minato is one of Halifax's best hidden gems! I've been a customer of theirs for well over a decade and the food is always the best quality and the best flavours. My main go-to for Japanese food in Halifax

Amazing place. Miso soup was incredible, and the dragon roll too. I recommend Minato :)

Best sushi in Halifax such a hidden gem. Always a great experience and the owners are very friendly. James makes great sushi that is authentic and taste amazing. Always ask to make it spicy adds so much more taste! Highly recommend!

The server timed each dish to come our perfectly so we were satisfied our entire meal. Super fresh sushi in a really cute and memorable building, plus it's in a convenient area!

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.

This place is very cozy and nice place to have Japanese food. The owner, chef James and his wife were very kind and friendly. We had chef's special sushi and roll plater and an extra roll on the side plus tempura for two people. It was too much food for us two but we killed it!!!!! It was sooooo goooood 👍🏻 especially scallop sushi was the best one for me :)

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!
