Beyond the usual sushi, ramen dishes Benkay offers seasonal set menus to match seasons in Japan and incorporates ingredients that are fresh and available at that time of year. Food is well prepared and presentation is good, restaurant is frequented by Japanese living in Guam. The ocean view is fantastic and can't be beat.

Restaurant opens at 0700, but they moved their location to a banquet hall so no atmosphere of Japanese.

By far the best sushi available in Guam that I have found. Not kaiten sushi - not california rolls - good nigiri sushi. Variety is good and they offer many things not available anywhere else in Guam. It isn't cheap, however, if you are craving good sushi - this is the place to go.

I had a lunch at Benkei only once. I ordered Tenpura and miso soup with pork and vegetables. Those were really delicious.

Went to Benkay for lunch - we were tired from the jet lag and didn't want to leave the hotel premises. Had lunch specials, and it was average at best - $18 for a noodle/rice combo leaves the value to be very low, the food was acceptable though I have to be honest and say it was just OK, not... More

This is one of the better of many Japanese restaurants in Guam. Since I am not from Japan, I cannot vouch for the authenticity of the food preparation. With that being said, the food is flavorful, made to order, and presented well. Service is average.

Thank Jirohiku
