The menu was extensive including a couple of pages of Thai. But they didn't have the Thai ingredients yet. Still a good selection and I did enjoy my udon. Okay, the place was really busy, but the service fell down. First they forgot to get back to us for almost fifteen minutes until I caught the manager's eye. He came... More

Stopped in for dinner one evening while in Moscow on business. The service was good, but not exceptional. The food was the same. I ordered a combination-type dinner to get an idea of what they offered. Nothing to brag about and I would probably go there again to give them another try.

I have been twice. The food tastes fine, but it is a bit heavy. It is also not cheap or particularly quick.

I was a bit skeptical of the "hole in the wall" type atmosphere, but the food is very good, fresh, full flavored, well prepared, and beautifully presented. Prices are good, and you get plenty of food. Can't wait to go back.

I'm vegan so finding places to eat can be difficult but when I came across Red Bento, it became my absolute favorite. They have a wide variety of dishes from sushi to stir fry to soups. Every time I'd order the same dish and it was perfect every single time. Ugh I miss this place. If you visit Moscow you... More

I have been in Moscow for 4 years now and I've always enjoyed the food here. The only reason I didn't give the place an "Excellent" rating is because the service can be spotty. I've had times where the busy day has great service and a slow day has poor service and vice versa. It's a smaller restaurant but the... More

This was by far the best food, Asian or otherwise, that I've eaten since moving from California to Idaho. I highly recommend the Monkey Brains, Heart Attack, Thai Tea, Bibimbop, Spider Roll, Las Vegas Roll, and fruit sushi rolls with chocolate and raspberry sauce. So good. Definitely our new favorite spot in Moscow.

We ordered the large sushmi platter and an order of sushi and the lunch roll. Of all the fish only the Salmon was fresh, the other two tuna tasted frozen and then thawed - that weird off taste that you know is anything but fresh. The service was non existent. I had to get up three times to ask for... More

Red Bento serves up great Asian food at a reasonable price, although their menu is now so huge (it includes Japanese, Chinese, Korean,and Thai dishes) that I wonder about authenticity and whether they're sacrificing quality for quantity. We always get the same dishes, and the food is always very good and the portions substantial, but I can longer sit in... More

We used to like Red Bento and go there a lot. The folks are friendly and the service is good. The food is generally all right. The prices have gone up. - Sadly, the restaurant does not seem clean. It smells like bleach but there is a lot of greasy residue in the hallways, bathrooms, and particularly the back entrance.... More
