Fodor's Review

The owners of Bonsai regularly visit Tokyo to research the casual dining scene, and their expertise is setting a high standard for Japanese cuisine in Edinburgh. The succulent gyoza (steamed dumplings) are pliant and tasty, while the wide variety of noodle and teriyaki dishes and the classy sushi balance sweet and sour deliciously. Try the raw prawns and scallops served with radish noodles and wasabi for refreshing, briny mouthfuls with a kick. The dining area has a bright informality, but the tiny tables may be a tad cramped for some, and the service can be patchy.
