Maybe one of the best sushi in Halifax. The fish is always very fresh and tasty. Very friendly service and good atmosphere.

Very unassuming little place, but cosy and we received a warm welcome. Service was very attentive and the food was delicious, fresh and good value. Would definitely recommend.

There were six of us and we all had different preferences. I went for the fish and it was very good. There was a little mix-up over orders, which I attribute to language difficulties.

Friendly service, excellent and interesting selection of dishes. They were also very clued up and geared up to cater to a gluten free diet: gluten free wasabi and soy sauce. Highly recommended!

Best Sushi in Halifax. Better than all the sushi I tried in Korea and Japan. Best sushi I have had, anywhere in the world. The dragon rolls made at Minato Sushi are THE BEST things I have ever eaten on this Earth! The dragon rolls I get have tempura sweet potato (or shrimp) inside a rice roll topped with avacado,...

The place is unassuming from the outside. The inside is well-maintained and the food was very good. The service was excellent. I came here on a Monday night and there were not a lot of people. The prices were reasonable for the quality. I would come out here again

Fantastic restaurant in downtown Halifax. The sushi and teriyuki was prepared really well. It was was crowded on a Tuesday night for good reason. Good prices. Wait staff was excellent. Highly recommended. They had signs from Trip Advisor for high ratings. It is obvious why they received these ratings.

A family spot. They're Korean, and as such you can earn a magnificent Stone Bibimbap, Kimchi and several derivatives of Bulgogi. From the Japanese, the Sashimi is fresh and good, still the style with which it is being served lacks the finnesse one is used to. All in all, highly recommended.
