On a recent outing to Coeur d'Alene, ID, some friends recommended Bonsai to us, telling us how neat of an environment it was downstairs. 

They informed us that this place had a little stream with fish and turtles for the enjoyment of their guests indoors.  We had walked past outdoors before, and seen a stream there but had no idea that they had one inside, with fish! Well, it was late and we were hungry, and since Bonsai serves Asian food, one of our favorites, we just had to check it out!

We were escorted over a bridge to sit at a table on a little island that had a stream around it.  Needless to say, we got a great close-up  experience with the fish and turtles while we ate. 

The children in the restaurant really enjoyed the creatures.  Apparently restaurant personnel provide the children food to feed the critters too.  It was a delight to watch the children giggle and laugh... and talk to, and about, the turtles and the fish.

As for the food, though it was unique in some ways, it was great-tasting and pretty too.

We ordered three dishes...from their "special deal" menu... and special of three dishes for $24.00, (or something like that) We ordered... if I remember correctly.... General Tao's Chicken, a Hawaiian Chicken dish and  Schechuan Beef.  It came with rice and was delicious.  They even have little bamboo sticks for eating your food!

Bonsai is near the big resort, the Coeur d'Alene Resort at 101 Sherman Ave....

Upstairs is a beautiful sushi bar.... and a bar that serves alcoholic beverages too.  But downstair, is where you'll find the swimming turtles and fish.
