I think this is one of Wilmington's top three or so restaurants. We love sushi. We sit at the bar, and we ask the owner to please make us up a platter -- his choice. Yesterday we were a little more specific: eight pieces, no...More

Once again, the Bento Box provided an incredible evening when we visited with our friends. The manager, Todd, could not have been more welcoming and accommodating. Our appetizers were off-the-charts delicious. We had a wonderful wahoo sashimi appetizer and, as always, the incredibly delicious calamari...More

Been coming here for years. Great sushi. But the service is S L O W. Even when they're not busy its slow service. Allow time when you go.

The atmosphere was very nice. My husband and I had the sushi. The presentation was "picture worthy". The sushi was made with all fresh ingredients. It was absolutely delicious! I enjoyed every bite!

The menu offers food from Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, China, and Korea. The focal point of The Bento Box is the sushi bar where guests can interact with the Sushi Chefs to create a unique dining experience or you may enjoy the private dining room for an intimate small group, the outdoor patio with its zen rock garden and water fountains or the sake lounge. The Bento Box sources as much organic and sustainably grown product as possible. Whether it's salmon from Scotland, hamachi from Kyushu Japan, or free range chicken, organic vegetables, and natural pork from North Carolina, we continuously seek out the best products to serve our guests.
