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.

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.

I have enjoyed meals at Benihana Piccadilly, and Kings Road. The most recent being a very early dinner at the Kings Road restaurant on a Sunday. The service was very attentive and we never had to wait too long for our waitress to appear if we needed anything. Overall cost was quite pricey, however, the food was really good and... More

Prices were quite high for the quality of dishes, but maybe it's because of the area. The service was a bit intrusive.

I went to Benihana for lunch, it was quiet inside but the atmosphere was warm and cosy. The preparation of the food was exciting and all of our food was tasty and the scallops were amazing!

I took my friend Sabrina to the Benihana restaurant in Kings road for her birthday on the 15th October and from the get go they were excellent. They called to confirm the reservation and that it was her birthday and let me know they would put her name on the birthday screen, along with singing her happy birthday as well.... More

We were invited for a meal here. Great setting and very pleasant service. The preparation of your food is the highlight of the visit as you have a chef preparing the meal. The choice is limited and the style is one and only grilled. There is not that amount of flavour or style to the food. Once you have had... More

In our latest trip to London we went to Benihana, I have been before a while back, and since then the deco has changed. It was late afternoon but we manage to have lunch menus. I have a combo of fish with lobster, scallops, DELICIOUS. My little one had chicken and a kids cocktail. The staff was very efficient and... More

Great place. Chefs cook on the table in front of the eyes of the guests. Dinner at this restaurant turns into a real show. All very tasty. Good mood after visiting this restaurant is guaranteed.

I went with my family for my brother's birthday. The kids loved the performance. Food was OK but pricey.

My 4 yo and 2 yo loved Benihana as much as I did. They love sushi and eat 'grown up' food anyway, but we all enjoyed the food and loved the experience. Chef was very entertaining, the kids oohed and ahhed. A rather expensive meal - kids meals around £12 - £16, but worth it for special occasions, and an... More
