Very nice restaurant with friendly staff and excellent food. Their buffet is great value for money if you come hungry, and they don't delay delivering to your table. (The Miso Aubergine is delicious, I promise you... even kids would love how sweet and sticky it is.

Overall, excellent. :)

The ambience of the restaurant is always friendly and the deco is great. The table was presented very well and with Christmas crackers. Which was a lovely touch, as the children really enjoyed .

The meal was served in a timely manner, piping hot and delicious. The managerest was very friendly and attentive.

We had a great birthday celebrations and would recommend Bentos to friends.

It fills you up but taste and appearance of the food were both very rough, just there and just about ok. Fish dry or too vinegary, sushi rice heavy (so we felt very bloated afterwards) , meat overcooked, service slow, no ambience.

Good place to have sushi all you can eat, I didn’t find any place better than this one in London for the quality-price

Bento has had a refurbishment where there are now benches along the two side walls making it less intimate. Ambience was spoilt on a Friday evening with a young child whining non stop from an upstairs room. Complimentary prawn crackers is a nice touch. Food portions were large generally good. Lemon sauce was the consistency of paste which I didn't like. Service from the female waiting staff is always pleasant and attentive.

Personally, it's the best affordable Japanese buffet in town. The sashimi is fresh, a good selection of choices, and no crazy limitation on what you can and cannot order like the rest of the buffets around. My hubby and I love going here despite the distance - we live in UB5.
