I would eat Agedashi Tofu at least once a fortnight The most consistent thing about the dish is that every restaurant makes its completely differently The Dashi Broth was complex and with great depth I appreciated that the Tofu wasn't battered and this helped to bring more flavour from the Dashi Broth

This is one of our favorites... the food is great, the ambience welcoming... roomy and stylish. Great for a couple or a group of any size

Had a lovely time here on new years eve night, lovely atmosphere, service and modern Japanese concept. A bit more pricey than other great Japanese choices in Northbridge, but otherwise the food provide great quality and freshness. Though this would still be one of my last choices of eating Japanese in the city price-wise

I have been coming to bonsai for at least 5 years and i must say it is still one of the best japanese fusion restaurants in perth! My favourite dishes which I guarantee you wont go wrong are the sashimi bites, chicken salad and wagyu

Wasn't impressed with the sashimi on avocado wedges. Avo wedges were carpaccio style, you could hardly call those wedges. Average Bonsai seaweed salad. We waited more than an hour before the food arrived, not in sync. Really enjoyed the interior design of the restaurant. The restaurant is well located near China town and the state theatre.

Visited Bonsai tonight prior to attending the Fringe Festival. Had to be seated at Festival by 7pm so reserved table for 5.30pm. Order taken immediately. The food was the best. Service excellent and we were out in plenty of time for the theatre. This is the third time we have been to Bonsai and it won't be the last.

Have dined in the is restaurant on numerous occasions, and have always enjoyed the quality and inventiveness of the menu. The seafood (Scallops) are one of the strong points of the kitchen, but nevertheless most dishes I have tried have been excellent. The fit out is somber, and the high ceilings make the space voluminous which has not been addressed... More

This restaurant is fantastic, the menu is extensive with fabulous choices. We had one of the set menus and the food just kept coming out, everything was divine, wonderful combinations of flavours and textures. Service is wonderful, polite, caring, quick. Id definitely go back again and again. Thank you

We were a group of 4 & chose to have a number of the small dishes to share. All of the dishes were wonderful, nicely presented & came out individually so that we had time to enjoy them before the next dish arrived.

A great Japanese restaurant with delicious food, great restaurant setting and good vibes! Very enjoyable dinner and will definitely be back for more! I got the three styled chicken dish which was very delicious and quite filling! My friends got the lobster dish which had nice decor! Must try!
