Very friendly, in small shopping center, family run where the sushi master is the owner and manager. Very clean. Order from the menu or request a special and the sushi master takes you on an amazing adventure. Or order traditional Japanese dishes.

No complaints. Solid all around. Had the VT, Penny, Red Dragon, and Roanoke rolls. Owner made them himself and was helpful in making a selection

I love Ben Gui Sushi! It's delicious - my friend Sarah got me hooked several years ago when we both lived and worked in Roanoke. We've both since moved away but family remains so whenever we're in town (together or sep) we stop in for a visit if at all possible! Everything is good here - the ingredients are fresh... More

We have never been to Ben Gui's for dinner - always lunch. It is a clean friendly restaurant and we have found that their sushi is fresh.

I love sushi. I've eaten sushi in many cities, a few different countries, still nothing has bettered the quality at Ben Gui... over the years, maybe one or two places that could give a good run for the money, but for a small city in the valley, Ben Gui sushi stands firm as a solid challenger if not title holder!

We have been wanting to try a sushi place in Roanoke for some time. We found ourselves near Ben Gui so decided to give it a try for lunch. I thought it was good but certainly not on par with other sushi restaurants we have frequented. I had the sushi special and my wife had the sashimi special. The portions... More

Our family has enjoyed sushi for years now or so we thought. We have only eaten local until tonight when we were traveling through Roanoke and found Ben Gui. The service is outstanding and the food unbelievable. We were all shocked at the difference in quality of the sushi and even the portion sizes. The staff was also very helpful... More
