Went with a group for a business dinner. Others had the hibachi, all enjoyed it but some portions were not very big. One had the steak appetizer, good size serving and well prepared. I stuck with the sushi. Tasty, fresh, well made and adequately sized. Services was so so. All in all a good experience.

We went for date night and sat in front of a grill for an hour before the cook showed up. We were just about to stand up and leave and he came around the corner. Once he got to the grill the show and food was very good!! Seems they need more employees (cooks) quickly!

We sat at the cooking stations and really enjoyed the show and the food. The steak and shrimp was great and there was no way I could eat it all! The prices are so reasonable and the kids loved it!

Daughter would go here all the time and she said this was the worst table show they ever have seen. They were short of servers,but our guy did the best he could. Finally got drinks after 15 minutes, salad came after we started entrée. Special cook did not provide any show with knifes.

I have been eating sushi/sashimi for 40+ years and this was the worst I have ever had. It was the 4th of July and very few places were open so we chose this restaurant by default. But I love sashimi so I had high expectations. My husband got the beef bento box for $16.99. It should have been $6.99. There... More

My husband and I have eaten at Bonzai many times since we live here. Today was our anniversary and we decided to eat at Bonzai. We had a table of four. The restaurant was not crowded-maybe 20 patrons-most had already eaten. We were the only table ready to order-2 other tables were waiting on people to arrive. There was one... More

You can get a regular table or eat at an 8 person HOT TABLE Hibatchi Grill table. We waited a long time for lunch because they were waiting to see if any other people were coming for lunch to fill our hibatchi table. It was a bit too long to wait. It was good & our chef was talented but... More

We had driven about eight hours, and I wanted to have a good Texas steak. Not knowing the area, we took a chance at the Bonzai. I had the side of filet mignon and my husband had the sushi salmon salad. We both inhaled our dishes. We don't like a heavy dinner, so the broad menu choices were very good... More
