  1. There are two that I know of: Sushi Park, in E.Northport or Commack, on Jericho Tpk is the better of the two because the rice for the sushi was fresh whereas the one in Carle Place, in thr EMS shopping center on Glen Cove Road, the rice was dried out indicating a staler offering.

    1. Incidentally, the one in Carle Place is named Minado or something similar. another hound can fill in.

      1. Thanks I have been to both and they are both hit or miss.

        1. I personally think you're insane to consume all you can eat sushi! Are You NUTS! How do you think they cut costs and provide raw fish at that price point--maybe the fish isn't sushi grade, maybe it's not-so-fresh, maybe it's been doctored with wasabi, etc., so you can't tell that it's old. Do your colon a favor and don't buy discount sushi--it's suicide. Also, any food that advertized by quantity over quality is doomed.

            I agree. As a foodservice professional I can tell you all u can eat sushi is kamikaze.

              Absolutely concur: don't eat all-you-can-eat sushi. Minado isn't bad (I've been there), but stick with the non-sushi stuff. By the way, nothing you find there will be as good as you can get at a good, regular, sit-down place, Japanese or Chinese. But, if you're fascinated with the idea of buffet, the great American expression of "largesse," then go for it. And, if you do sneak in a piece or two of sushi at Minado, make it a California roll and stay away from the raw stuff. Sushi grade cannot be had for that kind of bargain. ON ANOTHER NOTE: Best sushi I've found anywhere on Long Island, both from the standpoint of quality AND inventiveness: Hinata on Bond Street in Great Neck. I've never seen anything quite like it!!! Try the Flight Roll (amazing taste and consistency) and definitely have a Sake Martini or 2...take your time eating because you won't be able to drive if you jump up after 2 of them hahahaha.

            2. Minado's in Carle Place is not just "all you can eat" sushi, they have a huge section of hot foods too. It may not be the same quality you get in a "regular" restaurant, but it is good and and it is fresh. My family has been there a few times and we can satisfy everyone's needs. My husband doesn't eat sushi but my son and I do. There is a big variety and it's lots of fun.

                I agree. I go to Minado, but usually get the hot dishes (which include lobster tails on weekend nights). The sushi is of poor quality, but most likely will not make you sick. It also won't make your mouth water. So I highly recommend Minado if you are not a sushi snob (in other words, you eat sushi because it's "fun"). The little Asian tea cakes in the dessert area are absolutely delicious.
