Under $25 Recommended New Editor's Pick

We started our journey back in the Kitchen of our sharing flat. We had absolutely no idea what we were doing. Our first pot of sushi rice was horrible. My lips puckered, everything was sour and sticky and I wanted to give up (and throw up) right then and there. But, I decided to give it a few more tries. And I found a love and passion I never knew before. My friends and family absolutely loved the flavors I came up with and soon, an idea sprouted in my head: To open my own restaurant. You see, not only do I love sushi, but I also adore food. Finding fresh and local produce and turning into a culinary masterpiece means just as much to me as creating fantastic sushi. That’s how this wonderful idea came to be. And I couldn’t be happier making good sushi and offering fantastic food.

The food was great, service was fast and the staff were great. They let us stay past their 14:30 (arrived at 14:20) closing time even though we offered to leave and come back when they reopened. 10/10

The food was amazing, as usual, and they made sure my friend with a soy allergy had something which was very tasty. The waitress was amazing and the restaurant was very busy but she managed to make our time amazing and she did an amazing job, as did the kitchen! Thank you

Fantastic food at brilliant value. Due to the current pandemic the ambience wasn't as it is usually I'm sure but they did their best considering. Very busy with the takeaway side of things and we were sat close to the door so it was more obvious to us than if we had been seated further back. Will definitely be back and would highly recommend. Loved it!

I love Bentoya, I come here a lot and I was very impressed on my most recent trip regarding the steps they have taken to make the restaurant as safe as can be. The menu is now digital and you feel very comfortably spaced out. Don't forget to being physical cash though, they don't take cards. You have to try the aubergine goma, pumpkin croquettes and chilli and garlic edamame.

Card payments would have been appreciated during Covid and we were charged extra money from the card machine across the road, apart from that food was excellent and service was excellent!!

We booked in for dinner on a Friday night. The staff were quite rushed off their feet dealing with both those who were dining in and take away orders, but the food was excellent.

Good food at a great price. Service is adequate but unspectacular. Would be better if the option to pay by card is available, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Too popular! All the delivery drivers kept barging in and crowding the servers out. Needed a better system for managing that to allow the servers space. Everything else amazing.

The mochi were more like icicles and had most likely defrosted and then been refrozen. Sushi and gyoza were good and the noodles were ok.
