My husband and I decided to eat lunch at Bonzai when I was in Kerrville, TX last week. We opted for the hibachi table which we shared with three other diners. Our chef was engaging and did a good job preparing our meal in front of us. The taste of the food was excellent. I remarked to my husband that... More

This small retirement town has a gem in the middle of it! The sushi was wonderful and we wished we could have tried more! We had some speciality rolls which were delicious and the peppered tuna. All were fantastic. The seaweed salad was a giant portion! The beer and wine selection was huge - something you would find in any... More

Had dinner with son's family at a hibachi table, enjoyed the food and the antics of the chef. The selection of meats and seafood or combinations are great for hibachi cooking accompanied with fried rice and grilled vegetables. The menu also had a great sushi selection and bento boxes. Our food was prepared the way we ordered it and the... More

The table is waited by a server and additionally your hibachi chef arrives to prepare your meal on the large grill and to put on his show while... More

Went here just looking around for food options. Had some sushi, and it was good. Looks like they have drink specials on different nights. I'm debating whether this should be 4 or 5 stars, but imagine that this should be 5 since cannot imagine much more options in Kerrville being better than this place.

The fried rice is delicious. Actually I haven't tried anything here that wasn't good. The service has always been good for me as well.

Love the food, sushi and drinks, probably the best place in town for drinks, service can be a bit more friendly and faster orders take too long to come out, other than that is great

We recently ate dinner here. Small towns are not known for good Japanese food, but we were pleasantly surprised. The food certainly was very good. The waitstaff was very friendly and attentive. It was a good value for the money spent.

The Mahi Mahi and rolls we had were terrible. Sorry, but I wouldn't waste my time or money eating here. Service was average. Food was bad!
