Choose from the Sushi Bento Box, Salmon Teriyaki or Chicken Teriyaki Bento  – for just £5.95 each.

And don’t forget, you can always phone up and order from our take-away menu. You will find the menu here on our website. Give us a ring and we will arrange for the food to be delivered to your hotel room, home or office.

About the Bento Box:

The Bento Box (or O-bento) is basically what the Japanese call a packed lunch. A traditional bento consists of rice, fish or meat plus one or more pickled or cooked vegetables.  Bento Boxes come with internal dividers for each different type of food and the boxes are sometimes stacked up in layers. Bento lunches come in everything from disposable boxes to beautiful lacquerware – the whole idea is to make the box as pretty as possible. They can be very elaborate – often arranged to look like popular Japanese cartoon characters (anime), animals, buildings, flowers and plants. There are similar forms of boxed lunches in the Philippines (Baon), Korea (Dosirak), Taiwan (Biandang), and India (Tiffin) too.

And in celebration of the Bento, check out these great images  we found online.
