Handily placed within easy reach of Fringe venues such as The Pleasance and Bristo Square, dinky minimalist Bonsai has been serving Japanese cuisine to the Edinburgh public for more than decade,
and keeps its customers content with terrific-value sushi, sashimi and other staples of the cuisine. In addition to raw fish, the menu features miso soup, tako salad, beef tataki, a variety of
deep-fried agemono dishes, gyoza and octopus dumplings, katsu curry, assorted tempura (check the roast eel version), teppanyaki from the griddle and teriyaki cooked with sweet soy. It may be
cramped, but Bonsai is a cracking place to linger and there are bargain bento boxes at lunchtime. Drink Japanese beer, green tea, saké or iced plum wine. There’s a second branch at 14 Broughton
Street EH1 3RH (0131 557 5093).
