BK Oriental Bento. Buffet in a box.


The delight of Oriental cuisine has been at the heart of the Buffet King oriental restaurant for 12 years and the Oriental Bento is our newest service innovation. 


The Bento box follows a centuries old Japanese tradition of complete multi course meals in a single large compartmentalised box.


Bento offers you numerous selections, ample portions and authentic taste while adhering to social distancing regulations and ethically reducing food waste.




The Bento Box allows a selection of buffet style foods to be chosen by customers and then prepared by staff.


Enjoy a wide selection of oriental flavours with each Bento meal providing six of your favourite dishes for the same price as one dish on the high street or from a take away. 


In this way your meals can be prepared to proper restaurant grade standards of hygiene, and served to you directly at your table. Thats full table service so you’ll never have to leave your seat.






How Bento Works

You will be given a card with a representation of the bento box.


The sections of the Bento Menu correspond to the different areas represented on the card.


Simply select from the dishes that are available for those sections of the box.


The portions are generous and if you are a real buffet fan we suggest that members of your party each order different dishes and share to maximise the number of great tasting dishes at your table. 


If you still aren't 100% sure how the BK Bento works don't worry. On every tables there is a helpful Bento Menu that shows you which dishes to choose from for each bento box compartment.

We doubt that you will still be hungry after getting through a Bento but if you are, don’t forget we are launching a great new selection of sharing dishes, sides and smaller “dim sum” style plates for you to try as well as our dessert menu. 


We hope that you will support us as we try to ensure that you have the same great Buffet King experience during these unusual times while also fulfilling our commitment to improving food quality and taste, supporting local suppliers, keeping our staff employed and reducing food waste.


Buffet in a Box

Please note that the Bento Box is not an all-you-can-eat service.


The Bento Box provides you with the same fantastic selections that you would find in our normal buffet. 


Government restrictions on seating, staff levels and full table service  do not make the  all-you-can-eat option sustainable at this time.  

All-you-can-eat will return with the normal buffet service on June 21st.
