A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Numa das zonas mais badaladas de Lisboa, no Bairro Alto, pode encontrar o restaurante Bonsai. Um restaurante intimista, acolhedor e genuíno, com uma atmosfera apetecível e oriental, graças à sua música ambiente.

Shinya Koike é o Chef de cozinha de Bonsai e a sua carta é extremamente variada e as suas iguarias irão oferecer um gosto irreverente aos pratos, que são igualmente confecionados com os produtos frescos e de alta qualidade.

INSIDER tip

Para descobrir os prazeres que este restaurante guarda na sua ementa e que são servidos com arte e mestria, experimente a Tempura Moriawase, com camarão e vegetais. O convite está feito pela equipa de Bonsai “venha com pressas e saboreie as especialidades nipónicas que preparamos para si”.

    The toro was ok. Unagi really good, but the uni dish was so bad I thought it was off. Lucky I didn’t feel sick afterwards but between this, and the place which was freezing, I’m likely not coming back.

    It was absolutely good. The service was great and the chef had a special attention for us at the end of the meal with one of the best sushi I’ve ever eat. Japanese culture and food is part of my culture and family. This restaurant respect it and his traditions. It’s the only Japanese restaurant that I will recommend in Portugal. You can feel that they take the time to choose there products and that they know (especially the chef) what they are doing. My respect.

    Authentic Japanese! With great service, casual enough for everyday dinner and good for groups.

    The server was helpful and the food was delicious! Would definitely come back. My 9-year-old son ordered 3 tuna rolls. Would recommend getting the pork belly for sure.

    Kind of a dive but the food was good! If you like sushi, this place is for you, but don’t expect an amazing atmosphere

    Having lived in Tokyo I am fairly picky about Japanese food outside of Japan. While not totally authentic, the food at Bonsai was very good. The service was somewhat lacking but overall it was a pleasant experience.

    Super friendly restaurant with high quality food. Today was Ramen day, the best I've had in Portugal by far. Nothing comes close. Worth a visit!
