Bento Box Teriyaki Chicken is AWESOME! For years and years I’ve ordered teriyaki chicken in Sacramento restaurants, only to be served a dry overcooked piece of chicken with bottled teriyaki sauce across the top (not teriyaki chicken at all). Bento Box marinated their chicken and served it with cooked on teriyaki glaze. It was wonderful. Finally authentic teriyaki chicken in Sacramento! Thank you! To anyone who ordered sashimi, and sushi: Come on, think about it, that’s like ordering prime rib at MickeyD’s. A bento box by definition is a boxed take-out complete meal. Bento Box restaurant served a great bento box meal. Thank goodness it’s not another sushi bar that sells fried crap in a rice roll.
I have been to Bento Box three times since its opening. Customer service excellent. Prices are low compared to other similar establishments. Their kim chee is excitingly different... uses ko chi chung instead of lots of vinegar and red pepper. I had it as a salad with rice. So far, we've tried Korean short ribs, teriyaki tofu, sesame chicken, Thai chicken, kim chee, sushi (yellow fin, cucumber and futo maki). No complaints at all. Good portions, however son wanted a bit more rice with his Thai chicken. Nice variety of food, including bento boxes with salad and vegetables, sushi of all types, noodle bowls, and appetizers such as gyoza. I'll go back. No question about it. I wish them success!
Simply the best Japanese food in Sacramento and I should know because I love Japanese food. I have been eating there for about 25 years. Their teriyaki dishes, tempura and sushi are fantastic! This is a nice family-run restaurant where you get great service and it has a very cool old-world Japanese atmosphere. I highly recommend it.
