Family and I had a great visit. Staff was very helpful and attentive. We sat in the booth area and ordered from the habatchi grill. Food was very good and just as we ordered. This is our favorite Japanese Steak house..

This is as good as they come where Japanese restauants are concerned. They cooks do as good a job as you can find.

The food was excellent. We were there on lunch, so there wasn't much of a Hibachi show, which is normal for those crowded times. We also waited 20 minutes for each beverage refill, the waiter would simply disappear. Will be back for the food, hope the service gets better.

I visited with a group of friends celebrating a birthday 5 adults and 5 children and found that the atmosphere is very child-friendly all staff that I encountered were friendly and the portions of food are more than enough to satisfy we ate hibachi, they also offer 15% military discount with ID

Great place to eat for lunch or dinner. Newly remodeled so it looks cleaner and brighter!! Hibachi cook was extremely nice. Wait staff was a little slow. Food was great!

Now that Bonsai has been remodeled, they seem to have improved their service, the atmosphere and the quality of their food. Because (good) sushi is expensive, I don't eat here often. However, when I am craving sushi, this is a great option now that they have updated the restaurant.

My husband and I hate fast food but it seems like many stops off the interstate freeways only have fast food. We were traveling through MS and found Bonsai off of I-20 in Jackson, MS. We stopped for lunch and each ordered a Bento Box. Great lunch at a great price. Great service too.

Had lunch here for the first time and the interior was nice and comfortable with contemporary/modern design. The food was prepared well and tasted great. The service was attentive and the prices were very reasonable. I would definitely go back.

Went for sushi for the first time since their remodel and grand reopening. When I walked in, I felt like I was on an episode of Restaurant Impossible because everything looked brand-spanking new. We were seated, and as we looked around and admired the new decor, the Mr. pointed out some things that had not been completed with construction (a... More

We ate here a couple of years ago, and I thought it was good. I don't know if they have changed since or maybe I've had really good Hibachi since and this doesn't compare. The salad dressing was horrible, not authentic tasting at all...seriously tasted like mayo and ketchup mixed together. The pink sauce was missing something, obviously the main... More
