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.

Fun place to go! Been here a lot over the passed decade. Never fails to impress. The staff are always lively and the chefs keep you entertained throughout. I like having the private dining room. I usually get the 8 course menu which works out better value. Good food, good cocktails, great service and great atmosphere. I will continue to... More

Stairs down into the restaurant badly maintained and covered in yellow and black tape. Handrail wobbly which made it very difficult to walk down especially the two ladies in heels. We had a very lack lustre greeting and were then told to wait in the bar. The bar was packed and there were no seats so we had to stand... More

You can't go wrong here amazing food! Amazing cocktails!! Great entertainment from the chefs cooking. Even though I've been so many times it's great having a change to the normal meal out with a twist. Good for special occasions, family meals or a girls night out!!

The food, the service, the drinks and the atmosphere were second to none! Couldn't have asked for more. They accommodated our large table extremely well and made us feel like nothing was too much trouble. Our chef had a great sense of humour and truly made our night. I cannot wait to return. Thank you.

Went on a Saturday lunch time. Wasn't very busy and there was a kids party so had children running around playing hide and seek. The service was good and the chef was funny and food being cooked in front is always going to be entertaining. Wouldn't return however because of the overpriced food. £80 for a lunch for 2.

I booked Benihana for my partners birthday meal as part of our weekend in London. Before we went I mentioned it was his birthday so as we walked in they'd put a birthday message on the screen which was a nice touch. We had drinks at the bar and were then shown to our table. It was a fantastic experience,... More

I went there ages ago and thought it was lovely, but went there again and ohhhh it was so bad and so expensive. Poor quality food, very old interiors, a toilet that doesn't flush, very small portions... such a let down! and all of this for £80 per person....

Staying in Chelsea

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.
