The tired-looking exterior belies a wonderful culinary experience once you get past the door. Beautifully designed sushi is as tasty as it looks. The Bento boxes are a special treat at affordable prices. Service is friendly. Clean bathroom.

Bonsai is right next door to Aiko. These are 2 of our favorite sushi restaurants in our area. Bonsai has a warmer atmosphere and different foods than Aiko. Both are great, but lately we prefer Bonsai. Their rolls are more creative and they have more variety in their kitchen dishes. We love oysters and here we can have 2 types... More

My husband and I took his 17 year old daughter to dinner on a Saturday Night. We were immediately impressed by the decor! My stepdaughter had never seen a Japanese restaurant with the private tables like they have at Bonsai. If we weren't so hungry we would have waited for one of those table to open up. We sat a...

I love the food, the service, and the ambiance here. It's quiet enough for old folks like me to actually hear the person sitting across the table from me! The tea is free and very nice. Meals are topped off with fresh fruit, gratis. The seared salmon appetizer is out of this world, and the Port Washington Roll is a... More

I believe that under the new ownership the food is even better. Great variety of sushi and appetizers to choose from. Friendly service

This restaurant is more of a fusion than an authentic Japanese restaurant. Especially, compared to Yamaguchi. I've been going to this restaurant for more than 10 years, and I came here every weekend because they had the best raw oysters. However, after they changed the new management, the menu changed. Don't get me wrong, the sushi is still fresh, but... More

You get fresh sushi and wonderful hot food at very good prices. The Love Boat for two is fantastic and a great value. The Bento boxes combine sushi and hot food and are great. Service is great and so is take out. They have the fastest take out service in town.
