What we don’t like

  • Not many branches

Yo, foodies! Your boy right here is ready with another restaurant review – Bonsai Pan Asian Karachi!  It was a Kung-Fu hustle to get myself a table here, but I was determined to chopstick my way through their menu and did not waver!  I wanted to see if Bonsai could pack the same high thriller punch as watching Godzilla fighting King Kong. 

This place is Dragon Ball Z-levels of epicness. But enough with the teasers; don’t let me spoil the review for you; read on for the juicy details that make Bonsai on my list of top restaurants in Karachi.

Taste: A Kick to the Taste Buds

Okay, drop everything and listen up! It’s time to talk about the stars of the show at Bonsai – Pan Asian Kitchen: the food. Have you ever had a spicy kick that made your mouth come alive? I have. It’s called the Hot & Sour White SoupThe broth was thick and spicy, just the way I like it, and the tofu, chicken, shrimp, and veggies were all swimming happily in it like a synchronized swim team. As I slurped away, and just didn’t want it to end.

Now, let’s talk about the Szechuan Crispy Beef – I mean, wowza! This flavor was a dance-off in my mouth. The wok-fried beef was crispy and perfectly cooked, and the green bell pepper, red onion, scallion, and cilantro leaves were each playing their bit with a new groove taking the dish to the next level as the rich beef took center stage and captivating the audience in awe!  And the house Szechuan sauce was the DJ that had beats to bring it all together.

Last but not least, the Bonsai Special Fried Rice. Let me tell you, this dish was like a rom-com that had me falling head over heels in love. The wok-fried rice was so fluffy and flavorful, and the egg, soy sauce, and sliced green onions were like the supporting actors that added depth to the story. 

And then, my choice of meat (I went with chicken) was like the leading lady that stole my heart and made me want to savor every moment. I don’t think I’ve ever had fried rice that made me feel this warm and fuzzy.

Price: A Bargain 

The best part about Bonsai – Pan Asian Kitchen? It’s reasonably priced. You can get a bowl of 

  • Hot & Sour White Soup for PKR 475, 
  • Szechuan Crispy Beef for PKR 1270, and 
  • Bonsai Special Fried Rice for PKR 750. 

That’s an amazing deal, in my opinion – considering the generous serving size and the superb quality of the ingredients used. So if you’re looking for a solid Chinese restaurant in town with good value for money, this is definitely the place to be!

Service: Nothing to Complain

The service at Bonsai – Pan Asian Kitchen was top-notch. The staff was friendly, helpful, and accommodating throughout our meal. Plus, FoodPanda delivery is also available if you don’t feel like dining in. All in all, I was very satisfied!

Ambience: Clean and Classy

Bonsai – Pan Asian Kitchen has a clean, classy, and inviting ambience. The mahogany tables, white walls, and beautiful chandeliers create an atmosphere that’s perfect for families and friends to enjoy a meal together. Plus, the music playing in the background added a nice touch of fun to the atmosphere.

Honorable Mentions: Slay it Japanese Style

Holy moly, the Chicken Teppanyaki at Bonsai – Pan Asian Kitchen was next-level delicious.  The perfectly seared chicken was juicy and tender, and the veggies were all cooked to perfection with just the right amount of crunch. 

The sauce was savory and packed with umami,  the dish was like a flavor explosion in my mouth. If you’re a fan of Japanese cuisine, then this dish is a must-try.
