Me and my boyfriend went here after looking at recommendations here on yelp. They were known for their bento box as well as their sushi, and we're both a fan of sushi so we're excited! We had a reserved a table and we felt very welcomed by the old japanese guy and the younger waiters. We decided to go for... More

I guess everything is overpriced in Copenhagen. We ordered two Bento boxes, and they were awesome, but the bill came to $120!! And we had tap water to drink!!

We went here, actually based on the many very positive reviews. Well, we were disappointed. Of course it's not cheap, but what is cheap in Copenhagen? We ordered 2 boxes, one porc based and one with chicken. Actually our intention was to have at least one fish-based box, but that one was sold out (??), as well as another one.... More

Visited this restaurant with my daughter who has to stick to a wheat free diet. The staff were brilliant, explained which items had wheat/gluten and which didn't, then double checked our whole order. The sushi was amazing (both fish and vegetarian). Service was fantastic, and the restaurant itself is beautiful. Can't wait to go back. Thanks to Uki and family... More

Chose this place to eat because it was close to the hotel and because it had good trip advisor ratings. What a find - the food was delicious and the staff could not have been more attentive. Would go again without any doubt for tasty food, good portion szes and excellent service.

This turned out to be a very nice surprise in Copenhagen! This was very close to our hotel and my husband was here on business and we only had a short time to find a place to eat. I would've given this five stars if they had taken credit cards. The food was very good the atmosphere sweet. Small room...amazingly... More

Utterly delicious bento box, in an atmospheric restaurant, with attentive service and very reasonable prices. I'm definitely coming back.

I've been going to Bento for years, and I've never been disappointed. I couldn't think a better place I would recommend as one of the best kept secret of Copenhagen. Which was why I chose to propose to my fiancé on the 9th of November. They have exquisite list of menus for dinner, by now, I have tried almost all... More

This was by chance, but made sense. We had a lunch there and meals were just great. They had just 3 meals, udon, gyoza and curry, but it made us repeat. Gyoza is the best I had lately, udon was just pure sea silk and I should learn more about Japanese curry because this was very different from all the... More
