Had a great family meal at the Bento Box. Nice decor, friendly wait staff and very nice sush! We all enjoyed our rolls and nigiri. I was turned off by the name and regret that it took me so long to finally visit this place.

Chef Lee is a masterful bladesmith! Apparently one of the first (if not the first) Americans to complete a sushi masters apprenticeship ... his selections when requesting Omakase ... are flawless. Some chefs will give you at least one piece of sub par fish or...More

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.
