I've been to Minato several times. The sushi is always excellent and the prices very good. The places is very small and simple - don't expect anything fancy. Sushi sometimes takes a while to get to the table as the chef works alone.
The owners who run this place are very friendly and lovely.

After an 18 month absence to the Mother City I am happy to confirm Minato still serves the best sushi in CPT

It is a hidden japanese restaurant in Long street. Located in a comercial lane. It serves quite good sushi, specially maki sushi because the selection of nigiri sushi is not wide. Other japanese food is also available. We had a miso soup, two 8 pieces maki sushi and four nigiri pieces plus three beers. Total sum was 390 zar. Adding the 10% gratuity made 430 zar.
Sushi is remarkable, very friendly staff. A piece of advice, better order all food together.

On my alone adventure in Cape Town I visited a small gallery of shops. When I saw the Minato Sushi I entered. My curiosity made me more fortunate to know this restaurant. Traditional and delicately sushi, elaborated with great care, dedication and especially taste! Excellent misso soup and a delicious tempurá - try the avocado tempura!
Totally simple and very small restaurant but simply the best sushi in Cape Town!
