Best sushi hands down! Best service! They make everything in house and the flavors are amazing! I have been to many sushi places all over the east and Midwest from Florida to Wisconsin and every time we come to Florida we make sure to stop here! And try the zucchini ribbons!!!

I have eaten sushi in NYC, LA , DC and Orlando-Winter Park, and to be honest, the best sashimi and sushi rolls I have ever eaten is prepared and served in Bonsai Sushi on Dr. Phillips. A small family operated sushi bar with a focus on serving fresh seafood fish and shellfish, expertly cut and creatively presented, tasty sushi rolls... More

I was looking for a sushi place around home and found this with great reviews. Looked good. Tiny place but, cozy, it was only me and my husband so that was not a problem. Server was nice we ordered 5 rolls to try. Time waiting was kind of fast. Everything was ok until we got the rolls, that was from... More

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
