When I want sushi I come here. It's fresh and tastes great. I have never gotten sick from eating here. The restaurant is small, but it only takes 2 visits at most to feel like you're a regular. I recommend coming early or on a weekday to avoid the rush. I also recommend looking at the white board for the... More

The staff was friendly, the Sushi was good. This place is very small, lacking any privacy. The service was good and fairly quick.

Last night was such a wonderful experience! Intimate and comfortable setting. The rolls were the best I've ever had (chicken tempura and shrimp tempura), so tasty and fresh. The vegetable gyoza was delicious. My boyfriend had the shrimp tempura dinner and was just amazed at how fresh and large the the veggies were. I work near the area and have... More

Visited Bonsai Sushi with friends, I feel like we discovered a hidden gem. Simple set up, intimate family run business. I'm a vegetarian, which sometimes can be problematic but the team were really helpful, gave me some recommendations and it was lovely! My friends are not veggies and reported that it was awesome sushi. Really well worth a visit. Thanks-... More

Small is an understatement at this tiny little restaurant tucked at the end of a strip plaza in Dr. Phillips. Minimal square footage does not mean small on flavors. Bonsai Sushi delivers on service and flavors is a big way. Rarely do you see tables of two in any restaurant these days. Most are four tops with a sprinkling of... More

Wherever you eat in Orlando, if you love sushi then visit this restaurant. Some of the best sushi I have ever eaten...small restaurant but expert and really friendly, attentive staff. The tastes are superb.

AMAZING SUSHI. AMAZING STAFF a great combination. This was my 3rd trip to Orlando but my 5th stop at Bonsai. I have never experienced freshness and flavour like they serve. Its a small restaurant but serves up Big portions. I have no problem in recommending it to anyone who enjoys Sushi. Steve

This is, without a doubt, one of the best sushi experiences I have had, and I have eaten sushi in some of the finest restaurants in Japan. Located in an unassuming part of Orlando, within a small shopping area, and away from the hustle and bustle of tourism, if you enjoy great sushi, then this is well worth seeking out.... More
