We love sushi. We have been going to Benten since it was located in Mt. Sinai. We have never been disappointed. We have essentially tried everything on the menu over the years. We have traveled to Japan twice and we know good Japanese food. We...have no problem driving 1/2 hour to get good sushi, even though there are more places to get sushi than ever before.

A FAVORITE with local foodies and Sushi fans.
Everything is consistently fresh and perfectly prepared by or directly supervised by Ken.
I have been going here for decades.
Big beautiful restaurant with plenty of off street private parking.
Be sure to try the Clam Miso...soup.More
I would go out of my way to get sushi here but the last two times it has gone down hill, the Tuna was stiff and I couldn't eat it, not what I have come to expect from Bentons. They have a very good premium...sake but, that didn't help with the food. You have been warnedMore
benten is a japanese restaurant started and run by japanese owners seeking to present high quality japanese food in a traditonal setting .benten is not one of those fusion hibachi latest trend flashy places.you will find no flying shrimp nor yelling chefs here.you will find...a tranquil dining room framed with two stunning japanese wedding kimonos and actual japanese decorative touches.
the star is ,of course,a real japanese menu.table service provides a real assortment of traditional japanese fare.there is a wonderful sushi bar and an extensive sushi menu as well.the star of the menu is the combination meals.this will allow newcomers to japanese cuisine to sample four mains.the portions are ample,the food is super fresh and the presentation eye catching.
benten is not nor will never seek to be trendy.it is solid japanese cuisine.kampai!More
Not even joking. It could be because the chef makes sure that they get a lot of their fish direct from the fishermen on Long Island, but here’s the thing: you can actually bite the fish straight through, it’s that fresh. If you’re one to...“buy local” it’s a win-win.More
