Customers sitting down at Ben Yu--whose name is a reference to savoring a fish's original flavors--get served a delicate-looking plate of Japanese oden delicacies right away to warm up their stomachs. During weekdays, business lunch sets are NT$480 and come with five main-course options--grilled eel, sashimi, beef donburi, grilled fish, and sushi--served with sides like a sushi roll, grilled rice ball, chicken kebab, Matsuzaka pork, seasonal seafood and vegetables, soup, salad, and sesame tofu.

The restaurant's regular main courses are familiar Japanese favorites. The Grilled Eel is crispy after grilling and works perfectly with deep-fried garlic slices and broiled beef. The menu for side dishes changes from time to time, thanks to the culinary experience and creativity of Chef Hsueh Shuo Yen. A fish gelatin dish is usually pan-fried, and a savory Clam and Garlic Soup is especially delectable when cooked with crunchy, juicy garlic.

The a la carte dining menu has other items like a six-piece Sushi Roll (NT$300) and Oysters (NT$240). Diners can also order off the displayed menu board or try the Chef's Menu options, with prices ranging from NT$1000 to NT$1500, depending on what seafood is in season. The chef sometimes presents specialties made with secret recipes, like Chicken Tendon Broiled with Honey, Anise with Peanuts, Fried Chicken Skin, and Sweet and Crunchy Radish--all flavorful surprises available here.
