About

Buko Bento is a truly authentic Japanese food business based in Hythe.

We offer predominantly plant-based meals for delivery or collection, the inspiration for which were the bento boxes that chef Nobuko used to enjoy growing up in Japan.

Our bento box is a convenient all-in-one balanced meal that promotes healthy eating, sustainability and organic, fresh produce. As well as bentos, we offer sushi platters, Buddha bowls, soups, noodles and a selection of side dishes. We can adapt our food to suit most dietary requirements.

All our food is lovingly prepared. This is the food we love to eat and love to share.
