Happy Bento attempts to please everyone with its menu of ubiquitous Japanese and Chinese dishes. It doesn’t matter who is in your group –grandma or a toddler– they will find something to like on the menu.
You might not even guess the restaurant serves sushi until your server hands you the sushi ordering sheet. There, you’ll find 23 maki, including a few signature house specials. But the real specials are listed on a daily white board. Warning: you may have to search for the whiteboard, which was tucked next to the small sushi counter on my visit (I was chagrined I didn’t see it until after ordering, and my server didn’t mention it).
