I love Bent! It is my favourite of all Susur Lee restaurants. The quality, quantity, flavours and colors on the plate make it a fun and memorable meal. No complaints ever! This is my 4th visit!
The menu has a variety of fusion food options. While I am vegetarian and there is only 3-4 options on the menu, my boyfriend had a hard time choosing from all the non-veg options. We were celebrating my boyfriend's birthday, so I wanted a restaurant that catered more to him than to a vegetarin. You can tell that the chef takes pride in his food. There are many South Asian ingredients to give that perfect balance of spicy and savoury. Although I wouldn't dine here all the time because it is a tapas style restaurant and it can quickly add up, I would definitely recommend this place to someone that loves flavourful food.
Great food and really exceptional service. My husband loves meat and I am a vegetarian and they were able to customize the share dishes for both of us.
The food was absolutely incredible! We were 6 people and we got 9 or 10 dishes to share (they're meant to be sharing dishes), and every single dish was extremely flavourful, we couldn't get enough. I highly recommend the crab tacos, slaw, cod, and braised beef. It's a bit on the pricier side, but well worth it. Will definitely be going back!
Amazing mix of Asian flavors - S Lee best restaurant
Their food is great. Service is great. Thank you for giving my parents an excellent time!
This place is awesome. Food and service was amazing. Susur Lee even stopped by our table to ask us how we liked our food!
This was my first time at Bent. The food was amazing. The Asian coleslaw itself would be well worth a second trip. We went with the chef recommendation and let them bring out various dishes. I would highly recommend.
Great food and nice ambiance. Disappointed with lack of draft beer but small sacrifice for a delightful meal.
Like Lee Restaurant, the tables are a little too close together for any intimate dining experience however it makes up for this in the quality of food & service you experience. This was our first time at Bent.
The Singapore slaw is a must have whenever we go to Susur Lee's restaurants & never disappoints. We also shared the crab tacos - delish! And the spiced braised beef and Chinese garlic roasted chicken- both very good & generous portions.
If I had to choose, I prefer Lee's, however I would happily return to bent again!
Everything was perfect from the food to the service!!
Everything was excellent with exception of one dish, the spicy tuna-watermelon civece. There just wasn't enough tuna in the dish. It tasted amazing but there just seemed to be less of the star ingredient than in all the other dishes we tried. Had there been a bit more tuna in the dish it would have been 5 stars all around.
Excellent food and service. Definitely will go back.
Another spectacular Susur Lee restaurant. Food was very inventive and unique flavours. We had the Chef's Choice which was very enjoyable. Be sure to have the slaw, the octopus, and the amazing salmon!!!
Creative and delicious food. Great service, really felt cared for and attended to.
The staff were unfriendly and not very helpful. Our server was changed over to another person who was able to make recommendations. I have been to other Susur restaurants and unfortunately had the expectation about the service we would have received. The beef dish and lamb dish were both quite special however, our scallops were "gritty" clearly had not been cleaned properly.
Service was fantastic from everyone. Our waiter Anthony was spectacular. Attention to detail by whole staff was second to none.
We once lived in the neighbourhood of LOTUS and ate there a couple of times in the early years of Susurs rise. Later enjoyed LEE once and sought out BENT, which is at the top of the street on which we once lived in the 90s. Our Vancouver friends, who have eaten around the world, where impressed and we had a good time/meal.
Forced to 6pm by Open Table, there were empty tables for the 2 hours we were there. Is this to allow for walk-ins? You have to skip lunch to eat this early.
But we will be back. It is Suser Lee and his kids. And his spouse has a fine eye for design.
Dinner of Friday night always has a more intense noise buzz than earlier in the week when I often dine here; however I love this place with a passion.
Food is Fabulous, Service is Stupendous and Atmosphere is Amazing.
Thank You to all of Bent People for Always taking wonderful care of my and mine.
Excellent food and service
Great service, food was fantastic. Bent is becoming my favourite restaurant
As usual the food was exceptional. The only minor issue was the rack of lamb - the lamb itself was exquisite, but the menu stated that it was south Indian curry. We could not discern a curry or curry leaf taste, the mint chutney was more of a thin sauce that overpowered the other flavours, and there was little mango salsa to speak of.
The 19 ingredient slaw is so amazing you should go for that. Give the gnocchi a miss.
Great food. Very attentive service, each component of the dish is explained when served.
I LOVE Bent Restaurant.
I would eat here every night if I could!!!
Oh whoops I did eat here three times this week!
If that is not recommendation enough I don't know what is?
Absolutely incredible experience - this place never disappoints. It's a sensory adventure you're sure to love!
absolutely one of the best meals i've had in years, and i eat out a tonne. the plates just kept coming and each one was better than the last. twice i put blind trust in our waiter mike to bring me a cocktail of his choice and each one was fantastic. the decor was cool, modern and arty. the lighting was cozy. overall an incredible night. so good that i went back again three days later with visiting friends. i give this place my highest recommendation.
Food, service and decor were all great. Many of the tables are a bit too close together. Very accommodating to dietary restrictions. Would definitely go again.
We had a nice Waiter , good attention , thoughtful service , and an excellent meal !
Singapore slaw- my husband loves this dish, and said it was excellent. It's about too sweet for my taste.
Braised beef- amazing. Perfect. Tender and delicious flavour. My favourite dish.
Rack of lamb- meh. The lamb was seasoned after cooking (I could see the salt crystals) but if tasted quite bland. The curried lentils didn't quite go with the lamb. They were very spicy, which contrasted the bland lamb in a bit-so-good way.
Cocktails- the Cesar and whisky sour were fine. Good, but nothing special.
My only recommendation is to NOT order the lamb. It's blah-ness stood out against the other two dishes .
We had the bent-o meal and it was sooooo good. We were so pleased to hear they extended the promotion for another week! We'll definitely go back for it and we also can't wait for next years! We love this place and go every few months
Succulent burst of flavours. The chef knows how to marry the tight ingredients.
Excellent place to eat at, it's pretty fantastic food.
Interesting food. Nicely presented. Very pleasant staff. Really enjoyed the evening.
Anthony was our waiter. He was great! The food was AMAZING
I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is a seafood/fish lover - such as myself. The food will NOT disappoint. I went with my sister for a casual Saturday dinner. It was great - only downfall is the area it is located in; not much to do around the area (before or after).
We are age 26-28.
Great food. The dessert was amazing. The salad is always a classic. The ribs and lamb were equally good.
Chef Lee was on hand this last trip to Bent for the Bento Box which he does every year in the Fall. Fantastic as always and wonderful to have him stop by the table and chat with us. Makes the occasion so much more memorable.
The Food was delicious, melt in your mouth goodness that keeps me coming back for more.
Loved the restaurant. Took our young adult kids with us. Susar Lee was in the kitchen that night and very kindly came over to the tame to ask how we enjoyed our dinner. Big thrill for our food kids. They tried to accommodate my husband's clean eating and did so to the best of their ability. Would definitely go back again!
This is the best meal we have had in a long time. Every single item on the menu was delicious and had perfectly balanced and interesting flavours. We had the Bent-O box and we he braised beef. Absolutely delicious!
