The food is good, and the location excellent. The chef we had was very nice, but I think the "fun" has gone out of Benihana these days, the chefs don't seem to make the effort to entertain so much any more. Perhaps it was because the restaurant was pretty empty, or that it was a lunchtime? We had the £29 lunch special, which appeared to be very similar to the regular £19-£21 menu, so not sure it's worth the extra. All in all, still a good restaurant, and despite other reviews, I thought the food was of good quality (I had the steak which he cooked blue rare as I like it, and salmon). I just wonder if the place has lost its "raison d'etre". Service was excellent and fast, but as I said, the place was empty with only 3 stations running at the time. This restaurant is best when its full and noisy, with the chefs making a big show, and cooking good food.
