My daughter loves eating here. The show is fun and good is good. Lunch is the best deal, pay about 1/2 price. It may be a smaller portion but you get tons of food. Get the fried rice and add some mustard sauce- yummy!

It was just okay, nothing special. Even with our reservation, we were told the wait would be about 30 minutes. (What is the point of a reservation if you still have to wait 30 minutes?) Luckily, we were seated after 15 minutes. Ordered the Red Plum Sake Sangria. It was okay but had no/very little alcohol. The chef was okay... More

I don't like the whole idea, throwing food at you like you're a seal at a zoo. A few times I wanted to throw some back. The whole concept is stupid if you ask me. You're also eating in the order that they choose to throw it to you. Ever since I dined there I hand my Rottweiler his biscuit,... More

Benihana is just as good as it has always been. The key tip is to always go for lunch and ask for extra garlic butter. You will thank me later.

Benihana has a great lunch special that you can get for $10 to $15. It includes soup, hibachi vegetables & fried rice. It's always good & easy on the pockets

Although this place is supposed to be an authentic Japanese Hibachi restaurant, it's not. For one thing all the cooks are Hispanic, although they do posses hibachi cooking skills. The people making the sushi at the sushi station were also Hispanic. The waiter was Hispanic as well. So other then the overpriced restaurant having a Japanese title, there is nothing... More

Prepare for a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Listen as razor-sharp blades slice through tender steak and juicy chicken. Take in the aroma of sizzling shrimp, lobster and savory vegetables. Or visit our sushi bar, where your sushi chef will prepare fresh nigiri, sashimi and specialty rolls, all with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine.
