Welcome to Bonsai Restaurant & Cafe Lounge

Another year rolls by, Bonsai Restaurant has stayed open and cleared through another cycle of Christmas/New Year season along with Fringe Festival without rest. We are pooped and just like every year, we allow ourselves to be a lazy egg, “Gudetama”.

Annual closure

From March 11 to 26th The Bonsai Restaurant will be closed for our annual rest period, reopening as per normal on March 27th.
For reservations during our absence, feel free to make use of our online booking engine, fill out the necessary information for the booking to be instantly logged with a confirmation email sent.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused to our patrons but will see you afterwards refreshed and ready for another year with you.

What People Say

Lots of bang for your buck! Loved this place when it first opened and I still love it now! Whenever we visit, we prefer to skip mains and just order a bunch of entree/small dishes so we get to try all the beautiful creations these guys have.

The food is fresh and always has amazing flavor combinations that makes you go back for more. A stand out for me has always been their salmon sashimi bites... delicious! The team is attentive and friendly but not over the top which is great. Well priced menu too. Good job Team Bonsai! Oh but please bring back the chargrilled squid to your menu soon!

I have been going to Bonsai for the past 5 years and continues to be my go-to restaurant for a quick and easy dinner in the City. The plum wine is very sweet & goes great in ice - best I have ever come across. Whilst I don't usually order the mains, the tapas-style Japanese is more than enough food to share. Our usual order of miso soup, chicken salad with wonton, seared scollops, beef tataki, crab claws or prawn skewers is so tasty & filling that we can be in and out of the restaurant in under an hour. Great staff, relaxing atmosphere and we have never needed a booking!

We have been several times to this restaurant and yet again, we could not fault the service or the food. We were greeted immediately, served our drinks efficiently and the food came to the table in perfect intervals. We tried the $65 (16 course set menu) for the first time and we were so glad that we did. The selection gave us a satisfying array of tantalising dishes to try - each one as delicious as the next. There were six of us, it was a Saturday night, the place was full and the atmosphere was lively. The staff never tripped - they were on-the-ball, friendly and incredibly polite. Thanks Bonsai - we'll always be back!

Get the salmon sashimi bites. They are delicious. Also recommend the cheesy pork Katsu. A good dinning option for sharing with friends. Amazing customer service. Bonsai seats 175 people! It's very cool but a bit darker then I would prefer and the seats are oddly short & thats coming from someone 4"11.
