Fodor's Expert Review Bonsai

$ South Side Japanese

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

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, teriyaki, and sushi dishes balance sweet and sour deliciously. Try the tasty dragon gaijin-zushi (inside-out sushi roll with tempura prawns, avocado, cucumber, and mayo). The dining area has a bright informality, and the staff affect a casually cool air.
