    Love the Saba Mackerel bento box. Maki or the sushi rolls are nicely done. Try the California rolls or the spicy tuna roll. The fish on the sushi is always fresh. One of the best unagi's in town.

    One of my favorites. The bento combos are reasonably priced and they're one of the only places in the Twin Cities where there's good takoyaki! go during happy hour to make the bill a bit cheaper.

    This sushi spot is a fave of students looking to stretch their dollar but who don't want to get shortchanged on quality or choices. Their extensive menu offers a variety from sushi to ramen noodles.

    Shrimp bento box was a pleasant surprise. So many different flavors and options or a great price.

    I'm not a big ramen fan but I have to admit, they have the best ramen in the cities (I've tried a few and the broth tastes bland). Too bad they only serve ramen in Monday's. Looks like I got to wait!

    The bento and sushi offerings are quite extensive. Something for everyone.

    If Ikea sold kits for neighborhood Japanese restaurants, Obento-Ya could be its floor model. Read more

    I ordered a shrimp tempura bento box, and the mashed potatoes (why are there mashed potatoes in a Japanese bento box?) tasted pretty good. But the tempura was soggy, & the bento was mostly rice.

    Amazing sushi, Japanese food generally, and good service. Take a patio seat when it's nice.

    The Monday special is ramen, and it's worth the trip-- but you can't get it to go, so plan to eat in.

    New ramen, karaka tan-tan, starts Monday January 21st during lunches. Spicy and delicious, it's absolutely spectacular.

    Some of the worst ramen I have ever eaten (karaka tan-tan men). The soup was thin and watery. No dashi or miso taste; faintest hint of chili. Blandest ramen noodles on Earth. @UniDeli, save me!

    Order the berries and cream crepe for dessert. You'll want an espresso martini afterward. Off to find one now!

    The okonomiyaki at Obento-ya tops that of Moto-I and Midori's - better presentation, more tang and zip.
