Minado or Asia Buffet - which one do I like better?

The answer is Asia Buffet.

I first have to make it clear that I don't care for the buffet food. My only concern is sushi.

So when I said that I like Asia Buffet more than Minado, I am only comparing the two on the sushi offering.

To me, Minado put out a lot of sushi for you to pick. They used a machine to make the sushi rice. They filled up the sushi efficiently. I think they had some simple maki selection and hand roll too but I am not positive. Nevertheless, to me, the sushi were flavorless and kind of run-of-the-mill production. My verdict is "no return".

After reading some positvie comments of Asia Buffet, I was struggling for days to decide whether I should give it a try. I knew that I most probably was going to be disappointed but as they were claiming that they made sushi to order, they shouldn't be too bad. Thus, I decided to go on the President's day. To minimize the possible loss, I went for lunch by myself.

I sat at the back of the restaurant. I was a bit disappointed when I found that they did not offer my favorites, yellowtail and fresh eel sushi. But I was glad that they had so many kinds of maki to choose from. I ordered tuna sushi, tuna maki, crazy maki, spider maki and others. After 15 minutes, the sushi came. When I saw them, I knew that my money shall be well spent. Everything tasted and looked good. My only complaint was the rice. Although they were not even close to Osihii's standard, I would say that they were much better than Minado, Mr. Sushi and other buffet places like Hudson buffet.

Including the tips, I paid like $18. I don't know I will bring my husband to Asia buffet but I'm sure that I don't mind going there by myself again.
