The food was good, although not the best sushi you can get in the area for the price. The server was pleasant, perhaps overly so and in a theatrical way. He kept running between the few tables being served and kept apologising for the delays...(we didn't notice any delays). We were informed when sitting down that it was cash only, and I should have seen red flags there. After finishing our meal we asked for the bill and half of it was in a printed receipt and another half written by hand with a line stating "Service charge 10%" and the value. I always tip either by rounding up the bill or by leaving £5 to £10, but I am furious that this was decided for me on a service that entailed bringing 3 people a round of drinks and all out food at once. The service charge was not communicated to us beforehand and is not explicitly stated on the menu, the food prices are already high for what it is. I will not be returning due to the dishonest practices.More

We were greeted in a friendly manner and thought that we were in for a great experience. We had our drinks order taken after about 10 minutes and even though we had made our food choices, YY told us he would deal with the drinks...first and return for the food order. The restaurant was probably only a tenth full so we assumed (wrongly) that the food orders would be taken fairly quickly. 20 minutes later we had to prompt YY that we were hungry and hadn’t ordered our food yet. He apologised insincerely and said that they were very busy! We looked around at the almost empty restaurant and questioned this to be told that they were prioritising their take away customers! Obviously this wasn't what we were expecting to be told especially having pre booked the table several days before. YY was training a couple of new staff members which was fine and although they were smiling and pleasant they were clearly out of their depth. One produced an empty wine glass after having ordered a glass of red wine! The Wagyu beef dish was sent back because it was chewy and inedible it was a poor rump steak at best and Wagyu in name only. The other food was ok but overall the experience and service were extremely disappointing. I would rather have gone to the Macdonalds over the road and I’m not a big fan of the golden arches. Final straw was the Health and Safety. See the picture attached. We won’t return.More

Easily the best place in Leicester to get sushi! We wouldn’t go anywhere else. The food is always amazing and the service is even better! YY is a reason to visit this restaurant alone, he is amazing and always goes the extra mile for you....This is 100% our favourite place to eatMore

Walked past this restaurant so many times and today we ventured in as my dad wanted to try sushi! The service was amazing from YY and Angel! We were made to feel so welcome and had a good laugh with both. The food was delicious,...I ended up ordering extra gyoza as it was so yummy! We will definitely be backMore

Me and my partner were really impressed with the customer service as everyone is super friendly and welcoming. Provided us with fantastic service throughout our time there, along with their delicious food. Also, their Singaporean iced lemon tea was incredibly tasty and refreshing, perfect for...summer. We cannot wait to go back again!More

YY was an unreal server, the food was beautiful! I love Bonzai! The ice tea was so special he made it himself & went above & beyond.
