Good Sushi rolls

Its a good place to order a number of sushi rolls, have it served in a tray, share, talk and enjoy. I also found the black peppered tuna and the fried calimari to be good appetizers. I have also enjoyed the miso soup. These two appetizers would be better if they were served with something else... read more

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.

Excellent service! Try the Bonsai Dragon Sushi roll or the Criollo Roll ( is made with sweet plantain and steak)

Food is very, very good. The owner is always there, which I find to be extremely important. Sushi is superb; very fresh. I absolutely recommend it!

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

Horrible service, bad sushi, mushy rice and way overpriced. Although the sushi destinations this side of the island are limited, do not waste your money here.

Bonsai has always been my go-to sushi spot in Mayagüez. It's right in the center of town, it's a beautiful place and I like the food and prices. I especially love the Crispy Fussion and Caribbean Rolls. The CALAMARI are really the bomb! Overall it's a great place, the only things I don't like is that sometimes if the waiter... More

I have been a fan of sushi my whole life and this is the most terrible sushi i've had in my entire life!... The spicy mayo was horible, and they place it all over the sushi so i couldn't even wipe it off. We ordered like 8 rolls and left there like 4 untouched! Bad quality products is my guess!... More

Must try of course...sushi. I order the one with salmon, cream cheese, avocado and guava sauce (tempura) and the one with skirt steak (churrasco) and sweet platain. They taste delicious! The owner was very kind. Totally recommended!
