The food was a bit oily. Fast service. The kids wanted to eat and didn't want to wait to be served. The restaurant didn't disappoint. The decor was average. The food was average and didn't have a wow factor.

My partner and I went in for dinner at around 7:30 on a Thursday, and must we say we are very unimpressed. We both ordered a vegetable bento box which consisted of tempura vegetables, a potato cake, seaweed salad, one cucumber sushi, unflavoured lightly cooked tofu and a little serving of soba noodles and sushi rice. I've eaten Japanese food... More

We came across this restaurant when we first arrived in Canberra because of it's location to where we were staying. There are a whole host of eateries in this precinct and we found ourselves drawn to this place, as we love all things Asia - in particular, the cuisine. We chose to sit in the outside seating area where all... More

Not sure why it is listed as "Aasia Sizzle Bento". Seems to be just "Sizzle Bento". Could not find it in time on trip advisor on this occasion trying to get a quick dinner before the NYE fireworks. Understandably fairly busy on NYE and the food took 30-40 minutes to arrive. The drinks taking nearly as long hard to understand.... More

I arrived in Canberra and wanted a quick take away dinner. I had a seaweed salad and salmon sushi. I have eaten a lot of sushi over the years but this was one of the worst… the fish was smelly and the rice had an akward tatste to it. The seaweed salad lacked sauce and flavor.

There are better places to eat Japanese is Canberra, there must be. The food was only so-so, the service was poor, the staff unfriendly, and I would go so far to say disinterested. Décor is average, and didn't look all that clean. Find somewhere else to eat, give this a miss.

A nice cafe environment with excellent service and good range of dishes. The food was average and not very well presented. The meal was very reasonably priced. Nothing special.

I dined at the Sizzle Bento at Garema walk over lunch last month. Overall the place seems to be set up well, looked quite presentable and was located within the CBD of Canberra. I was welcomed my two attendees from different directions, it was disorganised and awkward. One lady who seemed to be the manger was always very cold and... More
