For over 19 years, Minato has been committed to serving the most affordable yet freshest sushi and Japanese cuisine in the Lake Forest area. Originally founded in 1996, Minato, which means Harbor in Japanese, only offered a small selection of Japanese fast food such as bento boxes and simple rolls. In 2002, the current Lead Sushi Chef, James, took over Minato. Over the years, Minato has evolved to serve hundreds of selections of sushi, rolls, bentos, beer, wine, sake and more. Minato offers the freshest fish in town served even through our affordable and generous All You Can Eat. We invite you to come in any time to enjoy the culmination of 19 years of culinary experience in Southern California, and we hope you enjoy!
