Miami New Times' Description

The $38 "lobster bomb" (lobster tail tempura, crab salad, avocado, lettuce, red tobigo, spicy mayo, and eel sauce with a side of sautéed lobster, scallops, and sautéed mushrooms) is simply to die for at this western outpost. There are also specialty rolls such as the "Bonsai G," with deep-fried salmon, crab, shrimp, and masago. You won't find rolls with Rice Krispies or gummy bears inside — Bonsai's chefs tend to stick to traditional ingredients — but you will discover fresh selections with generous protein-to-rice ratios at a cost that won't break the bank. Unless, of course, your date becomes a lobster bomb buff.

    I sit at the table for 10 mins and NOBODY came to greet me or even ask me what I would like to drink. Unacceptable. I am a bartender and this is just not cool. Food is so good too. But I won't be back

    Have the Red Curry beef (spicy 3 of 4). Its awesome. Also the Dragon Rolls are pretty damn good.
