Location and contact


Dim Sum Sampler
Two each of our handmade dim sum: shrimp, pork, vegetable and chicken with mushroom served with traditional dipping sauces
Korean Beef Skewers
Marinated tenderloin grilled served with Korean pickles and Kolchijan sauce
Salt and Pepper Calamari
Crispy calamari wok fried with garlic, scallions, fresh lime, salt and pepper
Duck Spring Rolls
Duck confit, Thai chili, roasted garlic, cilantro and hoisin sauce in a spring roll wrapper served with a mango- meyer lemon relish
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.

Bento Box has some of the best high quality sushi I have ever had in any city I have traveled too. Chef Lee makes sure everything is top notch and tasty. It’s simply consistently awesome. I’ve eaten there over 100 times.

Just kind of very average in the end. Kudos to the sake selection & super friendly waiter, Joe & nice lounge like interior and outdoor seating area. But: It’s one of those restaurants where you ask yourself “How can this all be fresh and well...More

The bento box was a good value. I had the steak which was a little bland. It could use a stronger flavor. The sides were good and they gave a lot of food.

The fish is so fresh and always tastes so good! Merry usually gets some sashimi with fresh tuna and hamachi- wonderfulness on a plate! I love the delicious roll - named correctly - with tuna! Chef Lee and his crew are the best!
