    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

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

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

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