We had a reservation which was not necessary. Took a while for the front to get us seated. The place was empty yet for some reason the staff would not be spending time out on the floor. They seem to be hanging out in the back mostly. Annoying! Once seated and we got our tattered and torn, cracked 30-year-old menus... More

If you want a good meal at budget prices, try the Bush Garden in the international district. Great sushi, but also an a la cart menu that is an incredible bargain. I had the garlic pork and added the cucumber shrimp salad, most, and rice for $2, for a total of 8.95 for the meal. The karaoke bar gets hopping... More

Finding ourselves in the International District, we decided to head for Japanese food. Bush Garden was a sophisticated, classy restaurant when we were last there 20 years ago. The Itamae, chef and servers have probably been there in our absence and their timing and attention reflected that. The decor hasn't changed and is now old and dingy. The food, once... More

The rides here are amazing!!! Very small lines also. There is something for everyone here. Animals, rides sandpits.... We spent 4 wonderful long days here and enjoyed every moment of it. My 11yr old thinks it's his favourite park and we visited all them.....

We had a large party with reservation but they still acted very unprepared. Service was slow given we were practically the only people in the place, often times getting the waitress's attention took more effort than I really cared to muster. One of us had to go look for someone to take our order after we had seated for more... More

Bush Garden has the feel of a business that once would have been a great place to visit. However, time has not been friendly to this Japanese restaurant; tatami rooms filled with stained shoji screens and frayed mats, dirty floors and decades-old decor. While the waitress was friendly, it took nearly an hour for food to be delivered - in... More

This restaurant needs a new owner and a complete upgrade. The food is terrible, the facility is run down.

I love this place. I have been going here for 40 years. It hasn't changed a bit in those 40 years. Everything is exactly the same and it shows, but that is part of the fun and charm of the place. I love the individual rooms for dining. Order the sukiyaki and they will cook it at your table. This... More
