Restaurant Review: The Bento Cafe, Delhi


What do you get when you cross smart, experienced people with a passion for Pan Asian food? You get the ‘Authentic’ Pan Asian Food experience. Usually when in the food court of Mall of India, you might look for quick fixes but The Bento Box is there to give a Gourmet – Fresh – Reasonably Priced – Authentic – Personalized – Tasty quick fix that too in a hexagonal box.

The Bento cafe is the first restaurant you come face to face with, and if you are looking for a pan asian cuisine, then this is the best place where you must eat.
Ironically, ‘The Bento Cafe’ gives you an out of the box experience in a box. These boxes are colour coded, Yellow is for vegetarian, Orange for non-vegetarian and Blue is for sea food. Next, there is immense focus on personalization on ‘Make Your Own Bento’.

You can choose your choice of Rice/Noodle followed by a Main from 3 very delicious categories. Next you get an amazing raw papaya salad – absolutely free!
Last but not the least, you can choose to add in a starter and a drink.


‘The Bento Cafe’ prides itself on bringing you the most fresh, imported and delicious pan asian food.

We tried the ‘Japanese Udon’ noodles, Chilli chicken, Prawn Thai Sriracha, Thai Basil and Duck Thai Basil for our mains.

For starters we tried some Crispy Spring Rolls and Juicy Vegetable and Chicken dimsums.

With some really amazing Sushi – Rock Corn Tempura (veg), Sweet & Spicy Shiitake Mushroom and Mixed Seafood Volcano.

There is a Live Sushi Counter, thus giving you the most quick, fresh and yummy sushi you can get in the Food Court.

The Bento cafe started on 24th Jan‘2016 in the newly opened and India’s largest Mall- DLF Mall of India. Founded by Ashish Kapur, Joy Singh (founders of Yo!China, Wine Company etc) and  Vandana Gupta (MICA graduate, ex foodpanda & emami).

The entire menu was curated by Chef Sam Wong from Singapore. He has worked with top five star hotels across the world. He trained the entire kitchen for 3 months before the opening.


Each Bento is a personalised experience. The choice of dishes in the bento is freshly prepared for the guest. We value the customer’s time and track each order time through a stop watch.
This ensures there are no delays. When you get your Bento box, it has your name and the Timestamp in which it was made.
For a true Pan Asian appeal, they have chosen popular dishes from across the orient-

In the Bentos, apart from Chinese you will find options from Japan to Mongolia, Malaysia to Thailand. They have included popular street food like the Indonesian Nasi Goreng, Singaporean bbq Pork rice, Pad Thai Noodles, Dimsums and Som Tum Salad. To educate people about the origin of the dishes they are served with a flag of the country.

They also have interesting options for drinks and desserts like ‘Fresh Watermelon Kaffir Lime Slush’ and ‘Melting Choco Dumpling’
