Description: 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.

In King's Road you have to go downstairs, nice location with a grill and chef for each table. They have also a lounge area with a big screen. On the screen they send video about japanese chefs dancing when they cook. The food is special, I like so much the diablo Noodles with fish. The food is not all the... More

Such a positive experience! Each table has a japanese chef that cooks in front of you. You can choose between fish, chicken and meat and you can also have sushi. Of course the main attraction is having your food cooked in front of you! Most of the times you share the table with someone else which is great cause you... More

Never been there before, not my idea, I "don't like Japanese food". Daughter's birthday party supper. Had the Hibachi experience. Sit round 3 sides of a large gas-fired hotplate, chef comes to table and...doesn't just cook what you have ordered, but slices and dices and juggles and plays around, eg making a flame/steam volcano out of the onion rings he...

We were all a bit cautious of how this evening would turn out. We need not have worried. What great fun for a grown up family birthday meal. Staff were all very helpful, chef was brilliant fun and the food was tasty. Not gourmay but did not expect that in what can best be described as entertainment. Definitely a party... More

This is a teppanyaki restaurant where you will get a private chef prepareing the meal in front of you. The food is not really reaching the level of what you could expect if you have been in a real Japanese place, but the show adds an extra flavour, specially if you bring your kids. The beef was tender and pretty... More

Been here a couple of times now, and been given good service by the staff, and a friendly fun atmosphere is provided by the chef when cooking your food! The food selection is somewhat limited but makes up for it in taste.

The food was ok, but lacks imagination, all is very well organised, a routine, placing guests and mixing them at semicircular tables of 8, a waitress takes efficiently the order, the food arrives and the chef starts the show in front of you. Very entertaining, but like most movies, once seen no need to revisit. Good entertainment, prices definitely overpriced,... More

We had a lot of fun, with the showcooking, sake and spaceous table! The food itself was ok, not great but definitely not bad. I probably will be returning.
