Freshly prepared with high quality ingredients, this restaurant has a wide variety of offerings from sushi to very good entrees. Chose two takeout meals, two appetizers and had soup on site. All delicious, high point was my steamed dumplings.

This restaurant has a nice exterior, and is a little cold on the inside temperature wise. The sushi is pretty sweet (as in flavor) but is presented well. If you like Americanized sushi that's sweeter, has less raw fish and jumbo sized this is the style they serve here. Their service wasn't anything remarkable good or bad but it makes... More

We stopped here for lunch on a road trip across Wyoming. We decided to eat here based on reviews that listed Bonsai as the #1 restaurant in Rock Springs. Perhaps this is true, but it was not the best Chinese food I've had. The food was medium quality and expensive. Not particularly surprising. If you really want Asian food, this... More

Great restaurant, friendly and courteous staff. Food was hot and plentiful. Extensive menu with just about anything you could want. Happy Family was big enough for two! No wonder it is rated #1!

We often eat sushi and other seafood as we travel. This octopus salad was the best we have ever eaten! The one salad was more than enough for the two of us and was overflowing with pieces of octopus. We enjoyed several different rolls as well. Who would have guessed it in Wyoming!

This was across the car park from our hotel so was a lazy choice. It was though a very good choice. Clearly popular with locals and busy however we were seated immediately and shown a fairly extensive menu. The sushi bar looked very good although we chose from the traditional Chinese menu. The portions were huge and well presented Value... More

Dropped in here on a whim and left completely stuffed. Food is really, really good. Excellent service and a wide variety of Chinese dishes and sushi on the menu. Loved the PuPu appetizer platter.

I was actually here in 2006-2007 and this was my favorite restaurant. Good prices, excellent food and fast service. A must if you go through town, though especially if you're a local.
