Bonzai has awesome fried rice and hibachi steak! The chicken is sometimes dry but other than that it is one of my FAVORITES in Abilene. Steven is the best cook I've had and his sauce he makes is to die for!

Went with My GF, her daughter, son and my son. We had Micheal and he was great and fun. The boys are 12 and 13 and he made sure to spend time talking with them and showing them some extra tricks. Great Hibachi experience.

We met friends here so decided to get a table instead of sitting at the hibachi grill. We ordered two sushi rolls and they were good, but hardly any Wasabi or ginger. We ordered hibachi meals. The soup was tasty. The fried rice was just that rice, no veggies. So I guess you have to sit at the grill to... More

Gotta' love their daily specials. The food might be a little heavy on soy sauce, but everything is always yummy. The sushi is freshly made to order. The cleanliness of the restaurant is a little disappointing.

I was taken here for my birthday at the beginning of the month for the first time... and I would have to say, I was beyond impressed. I can't remember the guys name who cooked for us, but he was awesome! I have heard some stories about other people who cooked for friends and they weren't as impressed, but I... More

Worst dining expierance I ever had at this restaurant. Had a waiter by the name of Autumn she was rude, unprofessional and just plain couldn't do her job. We ordered drinks she got them wrong. We ordered food she got the order wrong. When I told her she made a mistake she had the audacity to roll her eyes at... More

Love their sushi and love sitting at the sushi bar and talking with the employees about different sushi rolls. We usually walk right in, sit down, order and are served within 10-15 minutes.

I used to love eating here but after our last experience I won't be back. I wouldn't eat my meal after what I saw.

I have to say this is one of the dirtiest restaurants I've ever visited. I didn't eat my dinner and after checking the health score, I know why. The food was not good quality. The staff was nice and they put on a good show while cooking, but I still wouldn't eat it. Too many other places to eat.
