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.

Great location, staff, and menu! Was not a sushi fan before but thanks to Bento Box I now am. Server was helpful in deciding what I should get and the menu had a huge variety. Was also not near as expensive as I was expecting and I got so much sushi in my box!! I left stuffed with leftovers. Also the most fresh sushi in town. Definitely recommend this place.

Not only does Bento Box have a wide variety of sushi rolls but I've recently started ordering entrees and cannot wait to try the curry chicken again. It's delicious, highly recommended.

This is a long over due review, we were there February 23rd or 24th, 2013 (I got busy with work & school), but I had to make it a point to enter this review because it truly was the best sushi I have ever had, and my husband and I seek out quality sushi places; that's the only reason we chose Wilmington for our getaway was because we saw all the great reviews about The Bento Box.
My husband and I sat at the sushi bar and the owner was right there with his staff preparing our meal. One of the sushi chefs was called The Fish Slayer...he had a great personality and had us laughing while we watched the magic behind the bar.
We ordered the freshly caught Blue Fin Tuna, the Hamachi (the rose in the picture), the NY roll... and the rice-less maki Alaskan roll (we were so excited that we forgot to take a picture before we started eating it, so it's about half eaten),everything was better than we expected and so fresh! The garnishes were very detailed as well.
The owner came over to make sure we were happy; you get that home town restaurant feeling in a busy restaurant, what more can you ask for? The prices were good for what we ordered.
I wish we lived closer to there; we'd be a regular if we were!
