“Great fun, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

Benihana is of course well known and the Hawaii venue is one of their best outlets. Discount coupons for Benihana are not valid here but all the local free discount/offer books on the street stalls have a discount voucher inside them (at back usually) offering a discount here. Very Good food, atmosphere, service and the usual excellent showmanship of the table chefs.

“The Worst Benihana”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

The drinks were great but the food was just OK. The overall experience was very lackluster. Our chef must of been new, he was terrible.

“Okay, but not great”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

Our chef was not as good as the others. He kept dropping his knives and missing our plates. He also didn't do all the tricks the other chefs were doing. Food was a little dry and not NEARLY worth the price. Would not recommend this restaurant.

Love the chef cooking at our table. He was very entertaining and the food was delicious. We were seated with 3 other couples and everyone had fun. A good time!
