I lived in Japan for a semester and let me tell you that Benten has authentic Japanese food (and also the Americanized stuff). Not only do they have real Japanese food and a few regional specialties but the quality is excellent. I highly recommend Benten to anyone who loves sushi or is interested in trying the real deal. I also... More

Best or one of the best Japanese sushi restaurants in the mid part of Long Island. This time with friends we went for lunch box; however, in larger group we go for o-mi-casa (chefs special). It is really good.

We have been to Benten many times either for lunch or dinner and have never been disappointed. The food is always fresh and the service is always great. I am very fond of their bentu box it's a great value and always delicious. If you're in the area I highly recommend giving it a try

This is our favorite place for sushi.The John Jr is tuna roll with crunchy seaweed. It is the best. Another fave is the spicy tuna roll. The miso soup is so flavorful.

Although benten needs better service (staff is not very friendly), the food makes up for it. They start you off with a free appetizer and offer hot washcloths to clean your hands. The green tea they serve is very nutty, and the food is excellent. I enjoy their chicken katsu and steak teriyaki, but the sushi is also beautifully presented... More

Benten is a beautifully decorated sushi/Japanese restaurant. Oversized kimonos line their walls as well as lovely traditional Japanese artwork and sculptures. The food is excellent. They start off your meal by bringing you a small appetizer (on the house) and warm towels to clean your hands. Entrees include chicken katsu cooked perfectly, beef and chicken in a delicious teriyaki sauce,... More

Exceptional value with a great dining experience. Step away from the hibatchi, Benten is old school Japanese. Fresh rolled sushi at their sushi bar, or sit at a table and get your dinner in a beautiful compartment box. Recent box dinner was as follows, Tempura vegetable spears and shrimp, delicious shumai, California roll, beef Negemaki. The rice comes in the... More
