The first time I went to Bento Cafe with my family, I couldn't stop going there. Ordering the Bento box was amazing, although the rice was kind of moshy and dry, I didn't care. My brother ordered the red dragon roll plus Milk boba tea with pearls. Both of my parents ordered chicken veggie bowls which looked very tasty. The staff was very nice, the food was awesome, and surprised by the whole place, there were red lights hung from the ceiling and anime/sports playing through flat screen TV's. Giving this place a 10/10.

If you enjoy Sushi and like to avoid junk food, Bento Cafe is a great alternative to a quick casual meal. Their sushi is very fresh and the menu selection is pretty good. They also serve a variety of bowls accompanied with rice or noodle, as well as soup bowls and Bento boxes. Their tuna appetizers are great and can compete head to head with many of the fine dining restaurants. If you enjoy spicy tuna, I highly recommend their Spicy tuna don, my number one choice. Their service is very slow during dinner time so do not expect to be in and out in a timely manner.

Bento Cafe is great for several reasons. The sushi tastes great. The location is in the heart of downtown Orlando, walking distance from Church Street. The prices are great and the staff is wonderful. We eat here for date nights, but we also eat here with our kids. You can dress up or go casual. Favorite roll: Lust Roll. Favorite bowl: Tuna Don. There is a yogurt shop right next door for dessert :) Don't miss Bento Cafe on your next trip to O-town!

The entire staff was dressed up for Halloween; it's always great to see people getting in the spirit of things. It was interesting to see the way the menu choices were laid out (entree choices in boxes and bowls) but everything chose turned out to be delicious. We only had carry out so I can't speak for the service but the hostess taking our order was very helpful and friendly. Their chicken katsu was some of the best I've had in a while and their fried rice was good but not great. Wish we had one here in Tampa! It's definitely better than any of the Asian-style restaurants I've had here so far...

Pan asian restaurant offering Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Korean. Chinese and Japanese fares are average americanized version, nothing special. Everything is too sweet, more so than it should be. As for pad kee mao (drunken noodles) is way off. This dish should be named pad kee mao at all, it's not even close. The noodles is wrong, the sauce is wrong, they only got the chicken right. Next is the Korean dish, this is the only thing that passed. But it's still not the best. If you are on a budget, and you could careless about authenticity of the food, this is the place for you. But you want to really appreciate ethnic food, go elsewhere.
