Bento Boxes, originating from Japan, are lunch boxes that contain a single portion of a well-balanced meal. Typically, they have soup, rice, meat or fish, and vegetables. Currently, they're not easy to find in Hyderabad, but if you want to try one we've got you. Here's a round-up of four places for the best bento box experience in Hyderabad. Remember, Bento boxes are seasonal, most often. So call the restaurant and reserve your spot in advance based on availability. 

Maguro, Jubilee Hills

Think Bento Boxes, think Japanese cuisine. Maguro not only has an elegant ambience and walls decked with minimal Japanese decor, but it also has authentic Bento Boxes you can try. Especially if you’re new to Japanese delicacies, ask the staff to prepare you a bento box with their best selection. It’s truly a worthy gastronomical journey through the umami and wasabi notes.

7 Sisters, Kondapur

For all things Asian, be it dumplings, noodles, soups, bao and sushi, we love going to 7 Sisters. It gets everything right —ambience with a vibe, food with flavour and everything at affordable prices. Speaking of Bento Boxes, we recommend going for their Chicken Bento Box. It’s quite popular and sells in a flash when available. The best part is that it has an assortment of their best dishes, so you’ll get a taste of all things delicious.

Mekong, Begumpet

If you don't feel like walking back and forth a thousand times for a buffet or don't want to go a-la-carte, Mekong has a very inviting Bento Box meal waiting for you. You pick a non-vegetarian Bento Box with fish or chicken or a vegetarian one with stir-fried vegetables and dumplings. Pair it with Jasmine Sticky Rice or pan-fried noodles and Jasmine Tea.

Sesame, Gachibowli

Sesame is where we had some of the best sushi in Hyderabad, and we were taken aback by its menu. With wantons, grills, seafood from all around the world, baos, and maki, foodies have no complaints. They have four bento box varieties—veg, chicken, shrimp, and lamb with their choicest preparations. It's going to be a well-balanced meal in authentic Japanese style.
