Over rated and over priced. Only reason why we went is because we have a gift card. Sushi rolls are very very small and their cucumber roll literally just had one piece of cucumber with rice that's it. The place was loaded with flies. We...More

We have eaten here many times but I have never submitted a review. This is the best sushi around. The fish is fresh and expertly prepared by Chef Lee and his staff. We had the sunomono salad which was very tasty; the seaweed salad which...More

Bento box definitely has the best sushi in town. We go pretty regularly for their specialty rolls. We have ordered off the regular menu once, and it was extrememly expensive for what we got. $10 for 4 dumplings! When you can't fill a 3 year...More

The food is terrific but outside seating was too buggy. The flies multiplied as the night went on and no candles were lit to help out. Prosseco is not champagne. By the glass champagne would be a plus.

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

I love this place! The seafood displays are simply beautiful and the sushi offerings are artfully presented and equally delicious. If you are not into sushi, they offer an array of tasty alternatives. I particularly like the caterpillar roll and the sashimi. The tempura is...More

When a client suggested we have lunch at a sushi place in a strip center, I was a bit hesitant. I'm so glad that I went along. The sushi is amazing! It was awesome seeing the owner checking out the fish shipment that had been...More

I visited Bento Box twice on a recent business trip. The first visit I ordered the standard sashimi bento box. The food was obviously meticulously prepared and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the fish. Everything seemed pretty perfect down to the ripeness...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.
