VERY pleasantly surprised the other night when I had a sushi craving, and ended up at Bonsai. In town for vacation, we needed a place within walking distance. They had a few things on the menu that aren't normally on a sushi menu. Fatty salmon,...More

We live within walking distance of this place and we come here once a week. We love the service (fast and courteous) and the sushi is pretty decent for this area. Also, the wine is cheap and the sake is really good.

Their sushi is inexpensive and quite tasty! I usually order the shrimp tempura roll and eel roll - both extremely delicious!

The beef teriyaki was superb! The sauce was unlike any teriyaki I've ever had, different texture and way better flavor. I also had the teriyaki scallops appetizer, and along with the great teriyaki flavor, the scallops were outstanding too.
