“Great Sushi and other options too”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

Bonsai is a regular stop for us, before or after a movie. We love this place! If you go between 4-6 pm, they have great Happy Hour pricing on sushi and rolls. Everything is fresh, clean, nice staff (all Japanese, maybe the same family). It is not real fancy, but it has a nice atmosphere. Enjoy.

“Best Sushi place in Poughkeepsie”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2013

We are regulars at the Bonsai restaurants. They make a some awesome spicy tuna tuna rolls and hand rolls. The servers are attentive and the food is excellent. If you have not tried sushi before this would be an excellent place to try some. They have happy hour everyday from 3:30-5:30PM including the weekends where the rolls are discounted. We would highly highly recommend the bonsai restaurants to anyone who likes sushi or is looking for some fair priced asian cuisine (they also serve udon noodles and thai dishes).

Bonsai makes an awesome black pepper tuna salad. It is sushi tuna on a ginder dressing salad with avacado and seaweed salad topped with roe and spicy mayo. Absolutely delicious!!

“The best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2012 via mobile

You have to taste the salmon skin hand roll, the barbecued squid appetizer, the spider roll, the sashimi.......it is the best sushi in town!
The service is superb, attentive young, friendly young ladies.
The sushi chefs are par excellence!
Eat in or take out, the best!
