“Chicken sushi is the bomb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

I used to work right down the street from here and ALWAYS got sushi on my lunch and tea breaks, their range is awesome! all the bento boxes are good (yes I've tried them all!) and everything seems so cheap! me and my friends will go there for tea on occasion and like three of us can eat until we cant eat anymore and the total including drinks only comes to like $30 maybe $40 if we get alcohol, I'm telling you if you like japanese (made by actual japanese chefs and not aussies) and you want to try some chicken or sushi go here it's great! friendly staff, sometimes they are not the best at english but the front of house staff all speak ok english,it's clean, nice space, and food is absolute tops!

“Nice food but confused service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Nort sure if management has changed recently but in the past this has been a nice eatery. last visit though saw confused and slow order taking, menu mix-up, and uncertain service. Food fortunately was nice. If they sorted out their service this could return to being a nice little eatery to visit.

“Cheap, tasty, good variety.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

Bento is part of a chain of Japanese eat in and take away restaurants that provides good quality and reasonably priced Japanese food.
You can choose between 3 different size bento boxes, sushi or a variety of small dishes that amounts to Japanese yum cha.
The service is quick, the food tasty and there is a good variety to choose from.
