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.

It was good , it was cheap (dinner for two , no drinks or dessert $30.72 . The service was efficient . The food was a... More

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.

Usually combo Japaneses\Chinese restaurants are not that good but Bonsai was outstanding. I was really shocked since Rock Springs is not your typical cosmopolitan area but the sushi at Bonsai was great. I had the Ebi box which was sushi and tempura stuff and my wife had the typical Chinese beef and vegetables. Both were great!. The service was fast... More

The food was abundant but not exceptional. One thing that always disturbs me is when you order beer or wine and they bring it to the table already opened AND improperly chilled, if at all. Suffice it to say that they disturbed me. I think there was more than a little language barrier too. I rather like it when you... More

Ate here while traveling because review sounded good. Reasonable price for good portions, but not outstanding food. Enjoyed my sushi much more than the tempura, which had a different batter. Teriyaki chicken ok, but seemed like sauce from a jar. Garlic beef had little garlic flavor, and mushrooms in entrees and soup were canned. Overall, fine, good service, but not... More

I got the fire roll and it was delicious. As others mentioned the portions are pretty large. I thought the food was served fast and the service was fine. If you want some sushi in Rock Springs this is the place to go.
