While we have been to the current location, a rather significant expansion of the original site, we had not noticed the large outdoor seating area. It is nicely done and, at this time of year, has live music on Thursdays. Our arrival at the restaurant...More

While I admit that the sushi is very good, I find the owner to be unfriendly to guests and demeaning to his employees. Are you asked the owner to give me and two guests A sampling of sushi and the bill was over $200. I...More

The fish was fresh but the rolls are small for the price you pay. The food is good and the service was fine, the waitress would not look at me and only talked to my husband which was weird.

Over rated and over priced. Only reason why we went is because we have a gift card. Sushi rolls are very very small and their cucumber roll literally just had one piece of cucumber with rice that's it. The place was loaded with flies. We...More

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.
