Food is vast with a Chinese and American variety. Quality and portion amazing. The most impressive aspect is the incredibly friendly and polite group I have ever met!

An billboard ad for steak caught our eye, even though its a Chinese rest, decided to try, and the place wasn't busy for a Sat. night, but was clean and well presented once inside. We decided on Chinese food, and found the food to be excellent, some of the best rice to date everything was delicious, and plenty to bring... More

We've eaten here many, many times. The Chinese combo dinners are an amazing value, with enormous quantities of food. The basic Chinese standards are on the expanded menu, but the combos are a much better value. Typical combo comes with large entrée portion, huge quantity of house fried rice, plus two sides such as pork strips, eggroll, chicken wings etc.... More

This is your typical "chinese restaurant" not much to write home about. We went on a Friday night and sat in the lounge area. Very large area took way longer than it should have for our drinks. We had pu pu platters and they were very large and the food was okay. I probably will not go back a little... More

We got take out Chinese food (pork fried rice, egg rolls, boneless spare ribs, chicken fingers, chicken wings, crab rangoon, orange chicken). The food is really good. It's on the pricey side. They don't deliver, which is a bummer.

We were driving through Manchester last week and saw a sign at Bonsai's stating they had haddock specials that evening and decided to give it a try. There was numerous haddock selections at reasonable prices. The food was delicious and plentiful. I will certainly be back to try the Chinese menu. There was a ton of carryout I noticed while...

If you love great, I mean really great Chinese food you have to come to Bonsai. It is an experience you and your taste buds will never forget. Dine in the bar, watch the game, enjoy free popcorn and cheese and cracker and don't forget to have a Scorpion bowl for 4. (only 1 though) or call a cab. Then... More

I don't know which was worse, my curry chicken or the manager hacking up a lung. Wish I read the reviews first. So gross. Will NEVER be back.

First off...the place is ugly. Inside and out. That's not why I go there. The food is great (both Chinese and American cuisine) the drinks are great and the bartenders are good girls. It's clean. I've never had a bad meal.
