One of the best sushis on the western side of PR. Fancy and cozy place in the middle of Mayaguez old town. Creative and exquisite cuisine that mixes some of the best Japanese and Puerto Rican ingredients for a great experience.

Sushi rice was mush with no vinegar flavor. A small California roll for $9.50. Chicken cabab was made from boiled chicken with sweetened artificial chili sauce. $9 for 2 pieces. Thai noodles were too salty, especially veggie. Shrimp one was also salty but tasted slightly better. Couldn't believe they charge $44 for those. When we came once before, the food... More

A gem in downtown Mayagüez, you'll never expect to find sushi this good in this University town. The owner is always around catering to your every wimp. The place is very cool and has a tepanyaki table, the only one in western Puerto Rico. Worth a try!!

I wonder if all the people that say Bonsai serves "good" or "excellent" sushi know what real sushi tastes like. This place is a JOKE !! The day thay any sushi chef opens a real sushi restaurant in mayaguez, this place will be automatically OUT OF BUSINESS. "Mediocre" is a compliment for the sushi this people serve.

Long story short, went there with my couple and we were given miso soup with no miso in it but instead mushroom base which was disgusting and which we promptly complained about. Then, having ordered sashimi and expensive sushi rolls that are 'of the chefs' preference, we were given slabs of fish that looked handpicked and unpresentable rather than anything... More
