Minato Sushi included in Halifax’s Best Restaurants by Urbanspoon
It makes perfect sense that you would find a spectacular sushi restaurant on the East Coast of Canada in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The Award Winning Minato Sushi restaurant has been operating in Halifax since 2002 giving the residents over a decade of fine Japanese cuisine with a splash of Korean added in. Urbanspoon has labelled Minato Sushi as “Best Halifax Restaurant” in 2014.
Located at 1520 Queen Street in downtown Halifax in a quaint old house, you can sit in comfort as you watch master sushi chef Chung Young Ko (James) and head chef In Suk Lee work their magic.
After practicing his art in Korea, then Toronto, and now relocated to Halifax, master sushi chef Chung Young Ko (James) has finally pursued his dream of owning his own Japanese restaurant. James has been a sushi chef over 28 years and his specialties include salmon sashimi, minato roll and his very own unique blend of soy sauce. Working alongside James is head chef In Suk Lee (Leah) who brings an additional 17 years of Japanese and Korean cuisine to the restaurant. Leah is best known for not overpowering her sauces and spices.
The staff at Minato Sushi are very honored to be able to serve the people of Halifax and have spent a great deal of time perfecting their arts, getting their ingredients right and providing an exceptional dining experience. Decades of hard work have finally paid off and Minato Sushi would like to thank everyone who helped make their dream a reality.
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.

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.
It's about on par for price with the all you can eat sushi places. There rolls are bigger and better by far !
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.
