“Things have changed for the better here”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

I reviewed this restaurant after a number of bad experiences due to the staff at the time, there has since been a complete changeover in front of house staff and it has made all the difference. The food has always been good and now the staff are welcoming, attentive and serve with a smile! Changed my opinion Bento Sushi and I look forward to going back again.

“Japan in minutes”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

A lovely sushi bar where you have a quick option to get your food - straight from the belt on which various dishes circulate in front of you, or order something you don't see there (or some hot food) from the kitchen. The colour of a plate indicates the price of a dish, the cuisine is... Japanese themed, European adapted, I'd say.
The whole concept reminds of something, doesn't it? And it is not a bad thing. It's extremely nice to find something you're acquainted with, yet still new to discover.
The variety is good, food seems fresh. However, in terms of drinks the menu could use an improvement. For example, there's just one (!) sort of tea (not exactly a choice). It comes in a pot, though, and keeping in mind that there's enough for two, that's a good value.
Just watch out for an overall value - plates are small and filled with delicious food, so can pile up quickly. However, if you are lucky enough to get there for happy hour - cut your bill for dishes from the belt by 50%.

“Such Moody Staff!”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Food is good but the staff need cheering up. Rolling their eyes at customers in front of other customers, huffing and puffing if a customer wants to sit at an empty place that just needs a wipe rather than where the waitress preferred they'd sit. I've been quite a few times and every time am met with the same attitude! Puts me off going and if another sushi bar opened in Jersey I would definitely go there instead. Service with a smile will help this place endlessly!

“Scrumptious sushi !! A real treat!”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

Really small sushi bar with oodles of charm. Fab food and plenty of choice. Cold sushi dishes and hot cooked to order. Really worth a visit!
