About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Permanently Closed - Superstar chef Susur Lee designed the menu and still oversees the kitchen but hands over the reins to his sons Kai & Levi Bent-Lee. In this up and coming Dundas west neighborhood the boys have chosen a laid back vibe emphasis on great food and imaginative drinks. The decor also a family affair designed by the boys mother Brenda Bent and her partner Karen Gable.
Critics agree Susur Lee has done it again! Favorites include the Signature Singaporean Style Slaw, Tuna and Watermelon Ceviche,Lobster Tacos, Slow Braised Spiced Short Ribs, a decidedly Asian flare with its own Bent X sake brewed by Izumi. A lively environment with great service, and food that will delite all your senses.

The most amazing restaurant and we have been to and we have been to TONS of restaurants. This place is so special. The food is beyond incredible, we don't have words to describe it! The service is also top notch.
We were in town visiting from Winnipeg and made reservations last Sunday to finally check out one of Susur Lee's restaurants and we were blown away. We just had to come back again on their closing night, so happy we did!

Bent is closing and that's just too bad. Had to go one last time and we weren't disappointed. Great service as always and a chefs tasting menu that was out of this world. I've never seen bigger Diver Scallops and Susur's slaw just never disappoints.

Excellent place. We started with sevice and then crab tacos. I thought I was in a Mexican restaurant. Then we had Chinese chicken. Great combinations.

The food, as always, was outstanding in both taste and presentation. Our server was extremely knowledgable about the ingredients in every single dish. Our family is very disappointed that Bent will be saying goodbye at the end of this month. It was most definitely a family favorite! We wish the team much success in their future endeavors. Thanks again for another amazing night out!

Bent is a true gem. This was the second time and was possibly better than the first. Oyster sake shots were excellent with complex tastes during and after. Lamb curry was outstanding. Service was very good and it is unfortunate Bent is closing their doors soon. Hopefully staff re-appear at new Lee project because Bent was an amazing dining experience both times.

Sorry to say but it was a tad over-rated. I was expecting a lot more from this chef. The tapas style sharing is fun.

Booked same minute I received an offer by email about the plant based tasting menu. Advised it was a booking for a birthday but given a table right in the entrance rather than within the restaurant farther inside. This was booked months ahead. No reason for that to happen.

Service was very friendly but service came out oddly. Drinks served to diners individually over a half hour. Asked 4 times for the wine I ordered. 6 of us ordered the vegetarian special and 2 the tasting menu but the dishes did not get served at same time.

Still dinner was beautifully and thoughtfully presented and we had a great evening. I'm disappointed with the seating decision and surprised by service. I've been here before twice both times with an excellent all around experience..

Great food, exceptional service! We went for special occasion ,meal was expensive but that's what we expect so it's fine. Only part I didn't like is the noise level , fully packed on weekends. We went early so turned out fine for us . Will definitely go back!

We went for the Garden to Table menu, which was generally very good. We wish there had been vegan options for every course, but the staff did their best to come up with alternatives on the fly. It does seem surprising that there wasn't more intention to make this a plant-based menu and avoid the animal products all together.
