We wanted Asian food but wanted to stay away from the usual Thai or Chinese food. While Bristol lacks a good, full blown, top Japanese restaurant, Bento Boss is a good compromise, providing a range of sushi and noodle dishes. The noodle dishes are perhaps a bit more Korean or Singaporean than Japanese (in my opinion) but a good value and exactly what is needed on a cold January evening.

The restaurant was reasonably busy for a mid-week evening and I cold see it bring busy on Fridays and Saturdays.

All I wanted was to have some sushi, all I got was poor quality fish with a tiny bit of rice that could barely feed a family of ants.
Expensive for the poor quality it presented. A pack of instantaneous noodles from Tesco tastes more like Japanese than the “food” we had.

Bento boss has a special place in our hearts as one of the friendliest, most comfortable and tastiest places to eat, let alone eat sushi. We have been to a few highly rated sushi places together and always come out wishing we had been back in bento boss eating tasty simple food and talking to nice staff.
It is an overall pleasant and fulfilling experience all at affordable prices, especially for where it's situated on white ladies road.
Thank you Bento Boss for many great times! Xx

Sorry to say it but the food was not good. We eat a lot of international food and are both Asian descent- the portions were small, the belly pork bao was dry and too lean, flavourless. The salmon teriyaki bento was over cooked and not that tasty. Salad was nice. Chicken Katsu curry bento also very dry and over fried pieces, not cutlet either, and sauce very bland. We only live 6 minutes away, and I picked up in person so shouldn’t have been a storage issue.. this was the “belly pork bao” :(
