Very open and welcoming restaurant.. The food was excellent and the abundance of the tuna on the tekka maki was remarkable. Also the sushi was fresh and of high quality.. My wife had a Thai dish, curry, which was also very good..

Went for dinner with my boyfriend last night because it's one of our favorite Japanese places nearby. We arrived at around 11pm and the staff seemed annoyed by our arrival even though they were clearly open for business until 12. Our server was nice and the food was great, but we felt like we were being rushed since they started... More

Fresh sushi and nice Thai options in West Dade. The sushi is fresh and elegantly prepared without the pretentious feel of other restaurants. The Japanese and Thai entrees are varied. The service is quick. The place has a modern South Beach feel without the South Beach prices. A real find in Nondescript strip mall at the edge of the Everglades.

We tried out Bonsai as its near our accommodation in Miami. We popped in about 720pm on a Thursday and they were able to seat us straight away. The service was attentive, food came out quickly and the atmosphere was not noisy. We tried the lobster roll, chicken roll and shrimp tempura roll. The presentation was beautiful and the rolls...

Definitely my new favorite place out west! When I walked in, I was very surprised. I didn't expect it to look so nice! Very chic and modern. My favorite part though was the sushi! It was definitely my favorite sushi (so far) in Miami. I ordered the dragon roll and it was absolutely perfect. I tried my boyfriend's fancy dragon... More

We were going to eat at our regular eatery, but the wait was too long. As we were walking back To the car, we came Up To This Place And wow. The service was quick and the food was very fresh. I had the cashew nut scallops and a wonton soup. I was left speechless with the quality of the... More

Really nice restaurant. Very attentive service! Our server brought our son's meal out (before ours) before we even asked! :) She even brought him ketchup for him to dip his chicken in before we even asked for it! The Tom Yum soup was awesome. I also had the Edamame, California Roll and Spicy Tuna Roll. All very good! My son... More

On our recent visit to Miami our intended lunch spot was overflowing with waiting patrons so based on the 4 star 'headline' Yelp review and our love of Thai and Sushi we decided to give it a try. In retrospect, I wish I had time to read the reviews before eating here. First the positives. The atmosphere is a seriously... More

Don't be a fool by reading those reviews wrote by their managers. I was a fun of the place. Great sushi and nice atmosphere. However the service is horrible. Be ready to wait forever when u sit down to order. Many times u will see the waitresses talking and having a good time on the corner while u r waiting.... More
