Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

Look at this little text as a list of reasons to go to Bonsai. Here they go: 1) it has been serving good Japanese food for 31 years and it does not stick with just sushi; 2) It has a very complete lunch menu at 10€ which is one of the best deals in this city; 3) in the cold months, on Saturdays, every two weeks, there is a serious ramen, which takes days to be prepared; 4) already met several sushimen, but now has Lucas Azevedo ahead of the kitchen who knew how to maintain the quality of the restaurant; 5) There is almost always toro, the part that comes from the belly of tuna. Convinced already?

Perfect for: a meal away from the paparazzi, in one of the private Bonsai cubicles.
Must try: the ramen (in the winter), the toro and the pudding (all year).
