Regular C flyers - verdict on Bento boxes six months on?

About a year ago I was finally lured across to BD on UK Dom flights due to the constant reduction in BA meal service - the Deli bag, no more hot evening meals etc.

For a couple of months I was happy with BD C - especially as it was the same price as BA domestic C (albeit that BD is 3x2 as opposed to 3x3 on BA).

But then they introduced the bento boxes. And then they increased the fares so that the Full C fare is 160 as opposed to the BA Fare of 145. And although the BA service is still a lot less than it was, it is still served on china, and looks more like a meal than a picnic.

What is the verdict? Is the Bento a success or are travellers wondering what they are getting for their Business Class fare on BD (and do those convertible seats always work properly to give you your extra couple of inches width?)

Any BD insiders have an insight?
