Right on De Diego Street, located in a pretty blue building, you will find Bonsai. Great Ambiance and great food. The owner is always there and the staff is great.

We have been going as a family to this casual restaurant for 8 years. The restaurant owner, Tito, is usually there ensuring that the service is excellent. HIs staff is always very friendly and eager to please. We really enjoy the food, in particular the Kani salad, the Pizza Sushi and their most recent addition, Poke Tuna.

The two sushi rolls we ate were not good at all. We wanted to order another but we were not satisfied with the taste and size of the sushi. Our soft drinks were serve in stinky cups, which smelled like dirty cloth.

Bonsai is definitely the best sushi place in the area, and the only one in urban Mayagüez. Great selection and friendly staff. Plan ahead and call for reservations from Thursday to Saturday.

One of the best sushis on the western side of PR. Fancy and cozy place in the middle of Mayaguez old town. Creative and exquisite cuisine that mixes some of the best Japanese and Puerto Rican ingredients for a great experience.

Sushi rice was mush with no vinegar flavor. A small California roll for $9.50. Chicken cabab was made from boiled chicken with sweetened artificial chili sauce. $9 for 2 pieces. Thai noodles were too salty, especially veggie. Shrimp one was also salty but tasted slightly better. Couldn't believe they charge $44 for those. When we came once before, the food... More
