Description: Elegant Japanese styling and delicious fresh food await you at London's...
Elegant Japanese styling and delicious fresh food await you at London's Benihana Restaurant. Benihana is a favourite not only of tourists but of locals fresh from the nearby offices, relaxing with colleagues or indeed entertaining clients. In keeping with the Benihana brand the chain began in New York way back in 1964, this means that this year, 2014 is our 50th anniversary. This superb Japanese restaurant swaps the conventional kitchen for a central hibachi grill around which diners watch their food being prepared before their eyes. Boasting a wide range of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes traditionally cooked Benihana offers a unique Japanese dining experience not to be missed.

Superb night, awesome food and great entertainment.

Quite simply this place was fantastic. Highly recommend the special egg fried rice, just for the show that's made of cooking it. Food was plentiful and of a great quality. We will be back!!

Ok rule number one don't wear a silk shirt/blouse here! But the theatre of having a Chef prepare and cook your food in an entertaining style right in front of you is still unsurpassed. Don't expect a 'quiet' romantic table for 2 as you will put on the end of another group to sit around a chefs working hot plate... More

Great food and excellent show put on by your personal chef. Would 100% eat there again with friends, great venue for large or a special occasion parties. Couldn't fault it.

I pre-booked this restaurant & notified them that it was my partners bday I'm advanced. When we arrived, his Happy Birthday message was on the massive plasma screen & the service we received was brilliant. Special thanks goes to Randie the chef who made us feel even more welcome. The bill for the 2 of us with approx 3 cocktails... More

My wife and I enjoyed a lovely meal at Benihana. We had a set menu and the food was a delight as well as the show we were enjoyed while the food was being prepared. The saff were polite and very entertaining, a definite must do again this time with the little people.

Considering we paid a lot for a meal for my husbands 30th birthday I was left disappointed and sick. Service good, but after having prawns, salmon and chicken I was left violently vomiting that evening. I emailed the restaurant but heard nothing back.

Had a delicious lunch here and cannot recommend enough! We chose from the open table menu so we could have a variety and loved every mouthful! Service was great and our Cook was great.

A group of 5 of us had the steak cooked at the table and it was simply mouth watering. The side dishes were also most tasty. Highly recommended.

If you're from the US, don't expect it to be exactly the same, because it's not. That being said, it's still good. They do not have the yum yum (the pale colored mayonnaise based) sauce. The fried rice was a little bland, and you don't get as many vegetables as I'm used to, but it was otherwise good.

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
