Generous portions & a good amount of topping on the pizzas. The food is fine, nothing special. The service could have been more attentive.

I cn not believe I have to wait another 12 months (until next easter) to buy The Best Ever Easter buns. The Bonzai easter buns are the best I have ever tasted. Thank goodness I stock piled and have a few packs in the freezer (for special occasions)

We arrived in Greymouth a week ago. It was a long, tiring day after several delayed flights. We found Bonzai Cafe and decided to go in for a Pizza.

Established in 1982 the Bonzai has been under new management since June 2015. Now known as the Bonzai Cafe, it still provides all the old favourites, great pizza's and some of the best coffee to be found on the Coast. We've been continuing to improve the range of food available and extended our evening dining menu. We pride ourselves on excellent house made meals and good old West Coast service. All our produce is freshly baked and prepared on site. We make all our own cakes, pies, breads and savouries.
