The 9 Bento Box Restaurants in Singapore

A bento box is a Japanese concept of a single-portion take-out or home-packed meal, commonly for lunch. As rice is a typical staple food in the region, it is widespread outside of Japan in other East and Southeast Asian culinary traditions, particularly within Chinese, Korean, and Singaporean cuisines. Bento is from the Chinese word biandang, which means “convenience” or “conveniences.”

Because of its convenience, it’s becoming a popular concept across the country. And below are the top places to get bento boxes in Singapore.

Customer Reviews

We dropped by for dinner after a hiatus during covid. We noticed that the place has been renovated or refreshed. The menu looks updated as well and the service is more organized. As for the food, the white Bee Hoon still tastes like the original and goes well with green chilli, available by the side, self-served. The meat roll is a tad weak but manageable. Greens, bean curd, and sotong are equally good. – Chee Siong Ong

Customer Reviews

Wonderful service, nice staff, and good menu selection. The salt & pepper grilled pork was my favorite. The menu may sound basic but it was cooked just right – portion, flavor, juiciness, side veggie were just right. Everything were made with fresh ingredients, besides one of the tempuras (fish) had a bit of a fishy smell. The porridge that comes with the shabu-shabu set was cooked it in front of us by a friendly staff, and the porridge was very refreshing – Supatha

High-quality ingredients, great ambiance, superior service. I recommended this restaurant to all of my friends. The only minor call out would be the very loud music on the night of my visit, quite hard to maintain a conversation or hear your server describing dishes. – Zef Mrb

Went for their weekend lunch set! We had the unagi and wagyu beef kamameshi set and it was really good! Sashimi on the side was fresh! However, the chawanmushi was a disappointment it was very diluted with broth and could not really taste the egg flavour! Overall staffs are attentive, and baby friendly as well! – Mandy
