On Magnolia a foody respite awaits. There are many choices for Chinese cuisine in Burbank but Burning Bonsai has to be one of the top five. Chinese and sushi choices are had on the menu which is not overstuffed with choices. Warm inviting atmosphere, imported beer, all day dim sum. Great place. Parking is only on the side streets around... More

Having moved to Burbank a year and a half ago I have ordered from BB a number of times. The food is always fresh and tastes great! While they always quote long delivery times they have never not delevired in less time than they predicted! The Hot Basil Leaves dinner is especially good!

We love the Chinese food here - many great vegetarian options and very reasonably priced, generous portions.

Inviting interior for this small place in nondescript part of town. The spicy garlic chicken was good, but the portion could a little more generous for the price. The ginger salmon also won approval.Our server was very friendly and efficient, though not surprising since there was no one else dining. Would rate Banzai better than average and worth another visit... More

My wife and I were visiting her sister in Burbank when we decided that we wanted sushi. We went to Burning Bonsai on my sister-in-law's advice. Good choice. Sushi was good, service was good. The waiter was extremely friendly. We'll go back the next time we're in town.

I ate here with my friend. She stated that the food was good and it was. I had the shrimp and broccoli and she had the basil and chicken. Very very flavorful. Service was good.

Kind of like a taste of Hollywood funkiness on Magnolia Boulevard in sleepy Burbank. Yummy fusion! I had some sushi and it was great! I really really like this place.

Food is good, but smells funny when dining in. Service is ok, people are nice. Feel like it should have more business.

Me and my husband was there for lunch. I wanted to go there because they had Dim Sum on their menu, AWSOME!!. Normally, you don't usually see those unless you're at one of those bigger restaurant in ChinaTown or San Gabriel area, with a little carts being pushed around between tables. My first impression from the outside was "cute" and... More

Alright, so they may not always get the order 100% right, but the sushi is pretty decent and the atmosphere is relaxing.
