The late night sushi was a bit stale, took a long time, and the staff seemed very confused. I was not impressed and would not eat here again. The food court has so much better. Expensive as well, and the water bottle was like 4...More

Fresh salmon and ingredients in the poke rice bowl. The nice thing is that you can sit at the counter, fill out the request sheet, hand it to the sushi chefs and watch them make it for you. As I said, everything is super fresh.

Sushi at Bento is fresh and interesting. If you order a few rolls and a beer or saki, you will be more than satisfied. The tuna and crab were fresh and the sushi was well prepared.

At the MGM casino in Oxon Hill, Maryland, there are good selections of cuisines for lunch and dinner. The sushi was very good at Bento. The staffs and services are very good. Highly recommended.

I like that there was a Pho option in the MGM "Food Court." It's not the world's best Pho but the variety is nice. Made fresh with very fresh herbs and flavors.

My husband and I decided to give Bento a try for a late evening snack. We ordered your typical California Roll and Salmon / Avocado Roll, both were extremely dry and tasteless even doused in soy sauce.

I waited for at least 10 minutes sitting at the sushi bar. I was never acknowledged - even when I expressed disgust and walked away. The servers were standing right in front of me and there were two men who were also waiting and there...More

This restaurant in the food court at National Harbor Casino serves sushi only. No tempura and not even a bento box. Why is it named Bento if they don't even serve a bento box?
