I ordered the Ebi and it turned out to be baby shrimp and not the big shrimp like other places use. I'm sorry but I originally from Hawai'i, the sushi should taste good as well as pleasing look to the eye and not a disappointment.

I like sushi, as in raw fish, making Kyoto's my favorite sushi place. However, the Obento salad (chopped veggies, smoked tofu, and spicy rice vinegar dressing over sushi rice is something I LIVE FOR each week! So healthy! So tasty. I'm glad they supply grocery...More

And what it is is average sushi. The selections are not extensive and frankly, I make better. But you do have the choice of brown rice if you prefer and the rolls are generous.

When you want your fast food to be healthy and hearty you can't go wrong with an Obento bowl with brown rice. Its all good.

Obento makes wonderful, flavorful sushi and their Obento Salad is one of my favorite lunches. The restaurant casual, but very clean. The service can be a bit slow when they are busy, but there is hot tea and lemon water to drink while you wait.

I've been going here since they opened and have blindly accepted flavorless sushi as "the way it is." I started going to the Ritz (Bayfront) and will never go back to Obentos.

I spent way too much money here, for gross food. Even the miso was bad! How does that happen?!? Can someone please tell me where to get good sushi in Eureka!?!? And the set up of this place was so uncomfortable and awkward!

Way to much disgusting rice. Almost nothing good inside. I guess if you like gross rice this would be the place to go... I had a heaping bowl of the rice that I had to pick out of each roll to make it somewhat edible......More

Rolls are filled with way too much poorly prepared rice, hardly any filling. Miso soup had no flavor. Overpriced and not much better than Safeway sushi. You're better off going to Hanna or Kyoto's. Obento will be a disappointment to anyone who enjoys real sushi.
