Have been to numerous Japanese restaurants and my meal this evening was close to best ever. It was the sashimi bento box. Absolutely excellent. Can’t wait to get back.

We had lunch for 3. It was very good. Very nice people in this restaurant. We took it to go, but it has a nice decor inside to eat in

It is difficult to find good Japanese food in Burlington or for that matter the whole GTA. Normally we order from Sushi Masayuki or Doma Sushi in Burlington but on February 13, 2021 they were both very busy and it would have been a long...wait. Based on good reviews on Google (mistake) I ordered three special rolls which I use as a benchmark when ordering special rolls plus one special of the house. Let me start with the good; the staff were very friendly and the order was on time. Price was on the lower end for special rolls and I guess you get what you pay for. Now the bad; all four rolls lacked flavour. The sauce used to top the rolls was all the same and sweet but nothing else (more of a Korean item than Japanese). The Dynamite Roll was just bland period. The Black Dragon Roll was also very bland (Unagi was good) and all you could taste was the Unagi. We tried the Spider Roll and it tasted off so we ended up just throwing it out after trying a few pieces (which we spat out). It was fishy and anyone who knows sushi also knows you don't use old fish. It was the tuna, not sure why but it tasted like tuna from a can, had a metallic taste and was not edible. I am going to assume they used the belly meat from the fish (it was dark grey) and not canned but not sure. The main ingredient in a Spider Roll is soft shell crab and it was not there at all. No crunch, no crab! For the fourth roll, the house special roll I ordered the Fantastic Roll, which tasted better than the Spider Roll but the tuna was off again and we found no crab. On top of this none of the sushi rolls had any Tobiko (fish eggs) which give that small crunch and look like red specks. At no point did the restaurant say they lacked items to make the rolls. I can't believe there are people who rave about this restaurant; either they don't know what real Japanese/Korean sushi tastes like or they like it because it's cheaper. We ordered take-out due to COVID closures but you could not pay me to try this place again.More

Our first time in this restaurant was about two months before we were asked to isolate. Dinner was perfect! Plate presentation was great and the food was right to the point. Since then we returned for a second and third time. Service and food only...gets better! Everything tastes fresh and well cooked. The owners are very nice and the restaurant is immaculate. This is the place to find yourself eating. If you have a chance, you can stop by and grab dinner since they are open during this time for take out.More

I ate here solo and wanted a Sashimi lunch. I got a soup which tasted old and extremely salty. The Benb box had salad with a tomato covered in heavy gross dressing and the tomato seemed old and withered. The Salmon on the plate was...cut so large that I had to cut it with my teeth to put it into my mouth. Obviously no knife with only chop sticks. The other types of fish were cut appropriately but nothing impressed me and it didn’t seem fresh to me. Wouldn’t go back to this restaurant again. Service was quick and restaurant was empty...makes you wonder why!More

I had never been and stopped in on a drive for some lunch and that was a wise choice! What a wonderful place! Small, homey, comforting. The owners are unbelievably kind and welcoming just an overall fantastic experience! I came in feeling a little unsettled...and left feeling uplifted and satisfied! I had the nigiri sushi (appetizer) probably the best sushi I’ve ever eaten, the fish was very fresh. And the beef noodle bowl was just as good! The beef was tender and grilled/ seasoned perfectly! I will happily be back with friends!More

This place hasn't changed in years! I recently went back with a friend and we enjoyed the same tasty sushi rolls, the same atmosphere and the same friendly staff as before. The food tastes very fresh, with hot items coming out piping hot. I loved...the tempura onions and pumpkin.More

In search for the perfect local sushi place (still haven’t found one consistent enough for us) we took up the reviews and thought this would be a good next target. Unfortunately, maybe because it was Sunday night, maybe because they ran low on supply, the...fish just wasn’t that fresh. The salmon was two different colours - one was fluorescent pink and tasted very off... We were disappointed to see sauces and mustard (!) placed on top of our various pieces - whatever happened to letting the fish shine? I guess when it’s not terribly fresh you can’t. We ate a fraction of the offering - it wasn’t cheap and we’re heading back out for dinner now... I hope this is a one-time thing, but it will take a while before we venture back there :(More

This joint is excellent. Delicious tempera veg, delicious rolls. The fantastic roll is aptly named. The cooked items smelled great, we'll try them next time we go. Better than any local ayce sushi place around. Better than most al a carte options as well.

I have frequented the Bento Box since it first opened and even though they seem to have changed owners a few times, I have always had it on my list of places to eat. The last experience included my spouse and two grandchildren and as...usual we were all happy with the predictably delicious food and quick service.More
