My Mom and I went to Minami for lunch today. We took advantage of their lunch special of $8.95. It was probably one of the best buffets I have been to in a long time. Everything was freshly prepared and there were so many choices....More

This place has improved a lot on selection of foods and how they manage it since the last time I came here. However, the server I had could use some improvement on etiquette. The only thing the server had to do was place our orders...More

Expect to find a beautiful space that feels like a $$$ restaurant, with only pretty good food, but at $$ prices. Lots of sushi choices, and other choices like dumplings, as well as some excellent salads. It feels like a nice restaurant with a buffet,...More

It is not 100% Japanese food, some Chinese and other food. However, it is a nice buffet with a lot of seafood, meat, and sushi.

A buffet must show abundance and kept warm. Neither is evident. A better explanation of the offerings of food by the waitresses is important.

We were a group, 8, so Macaroni Grill told us an hour and a half wait. Not an option, so we drove to Minami Japanese Grill & Supreme Buffet. The worst meal we ate the entire time we were in Maine. Slow but polite service....More

After reading the reviews, my husband and I were quite confident that we would have a good experience...We were not desapointed. The sushi is fresh. The tempura is crispy and the beef terriaki is cook to perfection. This is an abundant buffet with many different...More

A group of us went to Minami last week. I found the food tasty and the selection satisfying. It doesn't have the bounty of choices as other Asian buffets, but don't let this fool you ~ they offer a broad enough selection to meet most...More
