Love this place. They use the best-quality ingredients, have a diverse and creative menu, and no other sushi I've had can compare. Bento Box has ruined me for all other sushi places!

I've tried every place in town and Bento Box is by far my favorite, it's my go-to for a million reasons. The fish is SO fresh and everything is reasonably priced. The atmosphere is great for everything from date night to dinner with the girls. Don't waste your time trying the other places in town, this is it!

Bustling crowd, modern space, interesting menu...We tried several different maki rolls, starters, a pu pu platter, and more, all of which were prepared fresh and delicious. Service was friendly, competent, and lightning-fast. High marks for this popular spot!

This is the best sushi I have ever had. I have been eating here for over 3 years and I have never been disappointed. The fish is the freshest and best quality I have tasted. I have been to the most expensive in NY, LA, and FL and nothing compares. The prepared dishes are incredible as well.

The Bento Box Sushi has to be the best we've had during several trips to the Wilmington, NC area. Very fresh and presentation is wonderful. You can tell they prepare each dish with great pride and they truly care about your entire experience. Service is somewhat mixed depending on your server. Great place to relax and enjoy fresh sushi after... More

My husband and I just moved to Wilmington and live close to this restaurant, so we have been meaning to visit for a long time. For the last two weeks, we have been on a "cleansing diet," where fish is the only protein that we can eat, so we thought there would be no better time to try Bento Box!... More

I literally go to Bento Box at least twice a week. They are always so nice to me and my friends, even though we have very specific sushi needs. We all order different types of sushi, and the staff listens to what we want. The price is great for what you get, and the atmosphere is great as well. I... More

Great prices, great atmosphere, and even greater food. Bento Box never disappoints. The pork belly lo mein is one of my favorites, and I always get the miso soup as an app. Perfect for dinner! Bento Box has a relaxing yet upscale feel, and I love the price range. Completely affordable! If you want a great asian meal in Wilmington,... More

Bento box is a favorite of my husband and mine! We try to come in at least once a month when we are really craving some sushi. We would never go anywhere else in Wilmington for sushi, Bento is simply the best! We love the environment and the friendly wait staff. The sushi chefs are extraordinary and are always willing...
