I have been to their location on India street many times. I wish I had made it here when they first opened. Their lunch specials are great, so many options AND I could stay within my college budget. They had the best green tea I have had in years. The seating area is clean the wait staff is amazing and helpful and the chef's even come out an walk around to talk to the customers. I will be back!

The traditional Japanese Grill is a more casual setting, one where you and your friends can share some great honest food with your favorite beverage. Chef Ando and the team at Benkay have replicated a Japanese favorite in downtown Portland, by providing great food at a great value. Each of the skewers are a culinary steal, with such tasty treats as scallops, beef, chicken and pork - and not to be missed are the ongoing sushi favorites from the original restaurant on India Street. I highly recommend you visit Chef Ando even if you are not a sushi fan - you will be treated with great service and awesome food.
