Restaurant details
Reviewed March 14, 2013

I've read other reviews of the Bonsai Restaurant that were less than kind. My family's multiple experiences with this combination Chinese and American restaurant have all been very good to excellent. Bonsai's history combines an outstanding, very well-known prime rib restaurant with the excellent Chinese food brought by the new management.

We routinely take-out Bonsai's Chinese food. We've never had an entree or appetizer that we were disappointed in at any time in the last 5-6 years. And if your cholesterol can stand the hit, their prime rib special is fantastic.

As for the atmosphere, no it's not posh. It's okay; not dirty or sticky-carpeted.

Bonsai is definitely worth a try. Often.

If you want to get sick, then by all means, come here. I don't understand how Bonsai's has gotten any good reviews -- other than maybe by the people who visit the bar, of which half the restaurant is made up of. The other half is a dirty, sticky-carpeted, mismatching lighting, mess of a restaurant. There literally wasn't one item of Chinese food that any of my family liked, and we ate so little of it, we actually ended up eating again at home. We gave it a try, but will never be back here again.
