A very good sushi bar with a wide choice of dish, bowl and sushi-sashimi ... A chef who takes care of his customers and offers a bucolic presentation of dishes. Very fast service and always a smile on their lips. Esteban offers us a salmon...More

I like that there was a Pho option in the MGM "Food Court." It's not the world's best Pho but the variety is nice. Made fresh with very fresh herbs and flavors.

My husband and I decided to give Bento a try for a late evening snack. We ordered your typical California Roll and Salmon / Avocado Roll, both were extremely dry and tasteless even doused in soy sauce.

I waited for at least 10 minutes sitting at the sushi bar. I was never acknowledged - even when I expressed disgust and walked away. The servers were standing right in front of me and there were two men who were also waiting and there...More

This restaurant in the food court at National Harbor Casino serves sushi only. No tempura and not even a bento box. Why is it named Bento if they don't even serve a bento box?

Stopped by to grab some sushi while at the MGM casino, saw Bento in a mini food court area. Really enjoyed the spicy tuna roll (which was really spicy) but there were a few fruit flies buzzing around while I sat at the counter and...More

I think the title says it all but I should probably adjust my expectations at a large casino. I ordered a "burrito" with spicy tuna and shrimp tempura and it was delicious! Also, the kids working there were lovely and patient with my indecisiveness. The...More

For a small amount of average food, you pay handsomely. The selection of sushi was also lacking. And I don't think there was even an actual bento box.

We were looking for a quick meal. Bento is a small sushi bar within the MGM casino food court area. The menu is limited but that is o.k. The sushi we ordered was very fresh. They have draft and bottle beers. There are only a...More

Staying true to its name, everything at this Japanese counter - including sashimi, nigiri, specialty and hand rolls - will be served in a bento box. Fresh selections of fish such as salmon, tuna, hamachi octopus and halibut will be expertly prepared by a team of skilled sushi chefs.
