My meal and appetizers were so delicious. Very happy they are in town. After living in the Hawaiian Islands, I miss authentic Asian cuisine. I found it! Atmosphere, service, presentation, freshness, quality and quantity of food, the BEST!

The restaurant is fun, modern and Oh, so good! Great cocktail menu and the servers are happy to help and make suggestions. The sushi is high quality, outstanding with some very innovative rolls. For those who prefer tempura, that is very good, too.

Everything was good, but nothing made it great. The restaurant was very nice, clean, the service was friendly and the food was good! Because I arrived early in the day (11:35 am), and sat at the sushi bar, I was able to watch them prepare...More

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.

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.
