Whenever our daughter visits, we always end up here at least once! Love, love, love the Bento Boxes - she likes the soups and noodle bowls and super sushi!

This was my first visit but I liked it and was surprised. For a Thursday night at 730 pm, they were busy but wait was not bad at all. Friendliness, courteous and food was tasty for a choosy person like me. Tried veggie rolls with spicy mustard and was good and pad thai veggie and that was good to. I... More

There are two Bento in town. One on archer and one here. This is close to my place and I usually order to-go. California roll and sezchuan beef noodle soup are what I like to order. Overall, I feel like the one archer is better and bigger

It was lunch hour, so perhaps they were really busy. I felt like the place was a bit dirty. They could use a person just busing and wiping tables. We got there at 11 and it wasn't too crowded. When we got a table, then we saw the lunch rush. I had the sushi platter and it was good. Son... More

I just had one of those bowls and the rice was cold and hard. Terrible!! Just like when you cook rice and you put it in the refrigerator and you eat 3-5 days later. I'm still thinking why I didn't ask for my money back. It couldn't be worse. On top of that, the place was empty, only 3 tables... More

This place was so good, convenient and well priced that we are here twice on our visit to Gainesville. We had the sushi roll bento box where you pick two rolls ( you get four pieces of each of the two rolls you chose). With it comes a full California roll, 8 pieces, a small side of cucumber salad and... More

I typically enjoy Bentos sushi. Yesterday is just seemed ok. They might need to up their game after all these year in the Ville.

We love Bento. We eat at Bento a lot. Not this location though. I prefer the Archer location hands down to the Newberry location. Cleaner, bigger, brighter. At Newberry they were unwilling to accommodate a soy paper wrap on a 4 piece roll and at Archer it was no problem.

I eat at this Bento weekly. Pro's: Great menu, restaurant is pretty clean, staff is nice, call in orders ready in 20 minutes. 1 free side sauce of choice (ponzu, spicy mayo, white sauce, etc) in addition to sauce on food. Con's: Sometimes you get the wrong order, so check before leaving. Sometimes there is a long line, but usually... More

Bento is good. Not the best sushi in town, but great options and done well. They also feature bubble tea which makes them fun as a casual pre-movie meal. My husband and I usually get a spread; he always gets the chicken noodle bowl and a roll, and I shake it up with whatever strikes me that day accompanied by... More
