Japanese food is a trend that continues to grow around Scotland and the UK, with legions of diners wising up to the raw fish wonders of sushi, sashimi and nigiri and the cooked meats of teppanyaki – cooked on a traditional Japanese grill – and teriyaki, marinated in soy sauce. The folks over at Bonsai Bar in Edinburgh – particularly their outlet on West Richmond Street in the Old Town – are known as superb purveyors of the cuisine, so book a table now and head on over.

We had a great time. We went with our kids aged 5 and 7 and they also had a great time. We've been to this restaurant many times. It is a bit expensive but that is the only thing I can say against it.
Very nice place, a go to for sushi in Edinburgh - great staff too.
Excellent food, great atmosphere and attentive staff. Good discount card:)
As the trend towards high quality Japanese restaurants continues, Bonsai Bar in Edinburgh is increasingly becoming a flagbearer for the cuisine in the Scottish capital. Close to the University of Edinburgh on West Richmond Street, as well as near to the many theatres and clubs of the Old Town – perfect for a Festival season snack – Bonsai Bar is classically-designed, well-priced, and above all, offers a superb example of Japanese cuisine.
Let us talk you through a meal at Bonsai Bar. Begin with a selection of deep-fried dishes – chicken katsu or a tempura dish – before cleansing the palate with some raw fish specialities, found on the sushi and sashimi sections of the menu at their West Richmond Street in the Old Town. If you’re feeling like a really big feed, then add a yakitori skewer or a grilled teriyaki dish and you’re well on the way to a great Japanese meal. Reserve in advance to secure a table.
