The menu offers food from Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, China, and Korea. The focal point of The Bento Box is the sushi bar where guests can interact with the Sushi Chefs to create a unique dining experience or you may enjoy the private dining room for an intimate small group, the outdoor patio with its zen rock garden and water fountains or the sake lounge. The Bento Box sources as much organic and sustainably grown product as possible. Whether it's salmon from Scotland, hamachi from Kyushu Japan, or free range chicken, organic vegetables, and natural pork from North Carolina, we continuously seek out the best products to serve our guests.

We were visiting Wilmington NC and some friends recommended Bento Box for Sushi. The recommendations were too low key!
The menu includes much more than Sushi. The folks I was with ordered mostly Sushi as did I. The quality was phenomenal (I eat lots of...More
From the moment we walked in the door it was great experience. We went at 3:30 on a Friday and sat at a high table. We were able to watch on the monitor as our sushi was being prepared. The waitress, Shelly , was absolutely...More
