Excellent restaurant , friendly service, varied menu of Japanese / Chinese cuisine. Everything was fresh, crisp, and the food didn't taste like it had been sitting in a pot all day. The presentation was professional too. I would definately go back. The menu serves the most ravenous appetite to smaller portions.

We were driving through on I-80 and stopped here based on the TripAdvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. The sushi, tempura and teriyaki salmon were all delicious. My sons ordered some Chinese entrees and said they were good too.

I love this place. A HUGE surprise. This is a must stop for anyone in Rock Springs. The Rock Springs Crunch Roll...just wow, but it is all good all the time! Consistency and quality set this place apart. I have eaten sushi in many places across the US and this is the very best one.

After a long day travelling, we were staying nearby. We walked in one family restaurant and back out. When we approached the door at Bonsai we asked a patron leaving and he said "we could not go wrong with the food there". We ordered eggrolls and then shared a sizzling dish with shrimp, scallops and chicken. It was great, and... More

After a long day on the road we were desperate for some good food. We got bonsai a half hour before closing thinking we were pushing it. Staff seated us instantly and took our drink order. The dining room was still half full! They came back quickly for our food order. Nearly immediately our miso came out and then the... More

For family gatherings where some like Chinese and some love sushi this is the perfect place to please everyone. The sushi lovers enjoyed the beautiful platters and all the Chinese entrees were delicious. All were beautifully presented and the restaurant atmosphere was nice but not too stuffy or formal to be comfortable bringing children.

My husband and I ate here for dinner. We ordered two dishes: Szechuan pork with veggies; and shrimp, scallops and chicken with veggies. They were both very good, but we would have preferred more fresh vegetables and less protein. I suppose the vegetable haters would be happy to have so much meat and fish. However, vegetable haters usually do not... More

We were staying at the Hampton Inn across the street from this Japanese place so we thought we would give this place a try since it was within walking distance of our hotel. Surprisingly, this place was pretty good! The decor was traditional Japanese, though the music playing in the background was not Japanese, which kind of took away from... More

We wandered next door from our motel, to find this restaurant packed out. We were offered a place at the bar, right in front of the sushi master. working her magic. We watched in awe of her skill and speed, and changed our mind from Thai to sushi. My wife has never liked sushi much, but both of us tucked... More
