Cosy place which also offers bento box take away, which is nice alternative to vietnamese/chinese/thai kitchen of which there are plenty around here. The taste of the meal could have been a bit more outspoken, nevertheless rather healthy / low fat food and very friendly staff.

My wife and I were exploring Copenhagen when we decided to stop in to Bento for lunch. The atmosphere was fantastic and the service was much faster than we have experienced in our Expat time in Europe. The lunch portions were the perfect size and was some of the best quality ingredients I've ever had. If you're a fan of... More

I chose the restaurant because it was across the street from our hotel (Absalon). We are so glad we were rushed for time and did that, because we loved it! We are from Hawaii and have visited Japan, so we are used to high quality Japanese food. BENTO was great. The waiter, bartender, and sushi chef were all very warm... More

Came here with a fellow Japanese food enthusiast. Very cosy atmosphere. Great location, near Istedgade, the central station and the meat packing district. The service was extremely good, very lovely and hospitable. Food (lunch) was served promptly after our orders were taken, where we were served tea along with our drinks order and then our meal. Very good ramen bento... More

We lived nearby the restaurant and found out this nice place hidden between the junction of istedgade rd and helgolandsgade rd (opposite absalon hotel). Sashimi here is fresh and authentic. Never missing a chance to try tempura udon and chicken gyoza which are awesome. Totally recommended this restaurant for everyone who needs good japanese taste and cosy environment!

Staying in Inner Vesterbro

Neighborhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
