Went back to the Bento Box for dinner. Even though sitting at the Sushi bar is always entertaining, it was a nice evening, so we went to sit outside. Tonight the service was outstanding and, as usual, the Sushi fresh and delicious. I can highly...More

Been coming here for years. Great sushi. But the service is S L O W. Even when they're not busy its slow service. Allow time when you go.

The atmosphere was very nice. My husband and I had the sushi. The presentation was "picture worthy". The sushi was made with all fresh ingredients. It was absolutely delicious! I enjoyed every bite!

If you love high quality sushi and sashimi, Bento Box is the best in Wilmington. This is an upscale restaurant with great ambience and wonderful food. Near Wrightsville Beach, this is a must stop on your dining itinerary!

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.
