Welcome to the Imperial Bento Restaurant:
Traditional and Contemporary Cuisine from the Pacific Rim
Imperial Bento Restaurants offer â€œOrientalâ€ cuisine from as far afield as China, Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Malacca region, Thailand and Indonesia (to name just a few).
Head Chef Wah Luu is Imperial Bento...
Wah Luu, is an excellent chef with 25 years of experience, who used to cook presidential meals for the Premier of China. He arrived in Thorney Toll in 2000 and acquired a noodle bar behind a petrol station on a stretch of road roughly in the middle of nowhere...!
Wah Luu's superb cooking, coupled with his business acumen meant that he was able to create a restaurant which became a household name in the area within a year and so the Imperial Bento Oriental Restaurant was born. The locals could not get enough and by â€œword of mouthâ€ the restaurant grew in popularity with clientele traveling 25 miles each way to taste the exotic blend of cooking.
Since then Wah Luu has developed the Bento Group so that he now has three family run restaurants: the original one in Thorney Toll (Cambridgeshire), and also one in Peterborough.
The word "Bento" comes from the word for lunchbox in Japanese which is a very popular and convenient meal for the working class in Japan.
