A “bento” is originally known as a single portion takeout. At Neon Pigeon, where community is key, the idea behind the “The Bento Set” is to offer corporate executives and lunch aficionados a quick but tastefully put together set lunch presented “bento” style. It includes a four-course offering of a “snack”, a “birdfeed” and a “bao” or a main. All bentos come complete with miso soup and daily omakase dessert.

We then tried the soft shell crab bao which was filled with crab and condiments oozing out of the bao. Every bit of this was filled with beautiful flavours.
Even the vegetables like crispy brussels sprouts and blackened carrots were done to perfection. I loved the crab cakes as they were packed with fine crab meat and still had a moist texture.
At this point we were full but greed got the better of us. So our last dish for the night ended up being the barramundi which sat on a flavoursome mentaiko and parsnip sauce.
There was no place for dessert so we are definitely going back to try that. truly worth a visit and I can guarantee you, it'll have you coming back for more.
It's a night out all in itself with an awesome crowd and vibe
Neon Pigeon is able to cater to vegan needs with an array of delicious roasted veggies, a killer rice dish and a genuinely improvised kickass hot sauce.
Dinner at Neon Pigeon is not complete without a bowl (or two) of our Tokyo Hummus.( pictured )
Fantastic service - attentive and friendly, and they serve the food and drinks with flair. It's also fun to watch the open kitchen.
The only reason this place doesn't rate a 7 for me is that the tables for 2 are really tiny, and while the music is great, it's so loud that it's hard to have a conversation. Probably best to go w/ people you know well and whom you don't mind being cramped with in a small space.
Great place to kick off a big night.
