“Flying chicken and fire, Always fun”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

Sharing a plate is the best idea. Just order double. And you will stay under $50 .. The food is very good and the shows put on by the cooks are just an added bonus

“Better food than Lakeland”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

I love the food at this Bonsai location. It is the best in my opinion. I would give the restaurant a perfect score, except for my service is typically very slow. It takes a while to get a refill almost everytime I go.

“Not good. Will not return.”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

I'll be brief. The parking lot is dimly lit and the restaurant is set back off the road. Kind of a scary area. We were the only ones in the table side of the restaurant and there were about 10 people at the hibachi. After being seated, we waited 15 minutes for a server and finally my husband went up to the sushi bar and asked if anyone was working that section. Eventually some kid came around and took our drink order. Two other people would serve our food.

The food:

EVERYTHING tastes like soy sauce. The fried rice, grilled veggies, hibachi steak .... it all tasted like soy sauce and nothing else. And it was all the same color. Brown, like soy sauce.

The sushi was bland and the dressing for the side salad is just French dressing with ginger added. It was awful!

We were very disappointed and will not return.

“Unexpected Delight”
Reviewed 7 November 2013 via mobile

The sushi side of the restaurant is beautifully decorated and comfortable. We started on the Hibachi side but moved because we found the seating to be too low and didn't like sitting with other diners, especially those with small children. But the staff cheerfully moved us and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal on the quiet side of the restaurant. We had the grilled salmon and salmon roll. Both were excellent, the salmon was very good quality, the grilled salmon had a nice, sweet crust and tasty curry rice. We were surprised at the quality.

“Family fun”
Reviewed 25 September 2013 via mobile

We eat at Bonsai about once a week. My 3 young kids love the attention and love the food.

Great food. A little pricey but great fun.
