The prices are much too high for the tiny portions they serve. The food is good, but nothing extraordinary. When we visited, our service was slow and the servers were not polite. I think there are much better sushi/Asian options in town.

Pros: Nice selection

Bento is pretty much the apple of my eye. In high school I would eat it everyday after school because the food is awesome and its not that expensive. Also, its cool that you don't really have to tip because you order at the counter. The red dragon roll is food of the angels as is the spicy tuna don, strawerry shortcake milk tea, fried miami roll, or pretty much anything on th menu (except the bento boxes, the desserts are freaky and the food smells weird). Oh, and for all you spicy sauce fans, Bento has the best.

If you love sushi but are on a budget, you NEED Bento Cafe! The prices are really GREAT for a meal here. The "boxes" are a full course meal with a selection of main course, like terriyaki chicken, noodles, white rice, veggies, salad and a dessert. You will be full and this runs less than $8.00! My favorite thing is the sushi however. I love sashimi and sashimi is pricey. Other places in town serve a platter or selection of sashimi (raw pieces of fish without the little rice cake underneath) for around $13 and up. HERE if you order the chirashi bowl for $6.95 you get crab, tuna, salmon, mackerel, yellowtail and sometimes more variety on a bed of sushi rice in a bowl. GREAT deal! It is fresh, tasty and the presentation is neat and not thrown together. The bubble teas with black tapioca beads are a favorite with my kids with flavors like vanilla, strawberry, coconut mango, and 50 others. Self serve drinks and sauces (free) are a plus. Great place to take a friend for lunch! Hip and small, try it!

PROS: Fresh, low price, fun atmosphere and bobba tea.
CONS: Can be very busy at peak times.

Bentos is a cafe that features sushi rolls and bowls. They have a great atmosphere, with inside and outside seating. The pricing is fair, and the sushi is overall pretty good.

They have a good variety of Japanese and other Asian food, the prices are very reasonable and the amount of food they serve is more than enough. Casual atmosphere, good service. And they sell "bubble tea"
