My wife and I love teppanyaki. Benihana San Salvador has good price, friendly staff, clean and good looking facilities. The food is great. I liked the past location better in Gran Via.

We had a good time with colleagues @ Benihana. Food was very fresh and tasty, the cooking is entertaining, service is more than decent... It's probably a classic, but always a success!
