Description: 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.

I live in Wilmington and have had sushi at most of the restaurants here! The sushi at Bento Box is OUTSTANDING. The chef/owner (Lee) is creative and knows how to deliver fresh high quality grade sushi. The service is also very prompt and friendly. Go! You'll love it.

Every time I visit Wilmington, this is one of my first stops. We always go with a large group of friends - and the staff at Bento Box are very accommodating. Most importantly, I never leave hungry. The food is DELICIOUS!

I only got a sushi roll to go (called Pain), it was ok - the roll was not packed as tight as I would like (fell apart easily) and the flavors were weak - with a name like "Pain" I expected more heat. The restaurant seems to offer a wide array of Asian cuisine and has a prominent bar, but I did not try. Maybe next time, as I would return.

Love this place! Food is always fresh and looks so pretty! If you're new to sushi sit at the sushi bar and the owner/head chef will suggest something for everyone's suit taste. If you've never had a Lychee martini you should try one. Desert is a MUST!
