The two sushi rolls we ate were not good at all. We wanted to order another but we were not satisfied with the taste and size of the sushi. Our soft drinks were serve in stinky cups, which smelled like dirty cloth.

Bonsai is definitely the best sushi place in the area, and the only one in urban Mayagüez. Great selection and friendly staff. Plan ahead and call for reservations from Thursday to Saturday.

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!!
