The food is cooked in front of you and is absolutely delicious. The Chef that we had was Kernan and he was an excellent entertainer as well. He had us laughing so much with his antics and songs. Nobu also came and sang while Kernan provided the beat using his spice shakers. Nobu was very entertaining also. Our waitress Angie... More

Our waiter Nobu was amazingly generous and created a great atmosphere for everyone in the whole room- not a bad singer either :). Our chef for the... More

Being from the states Benihana is a familiar restaurant name and we came one of our first nights in town. The kids loved it, even better in Australia! Not sure when we will get the chance to come back but I recommend to all.

Wonderful night the atmosphere was electric-the chefs were entertainment incorporated with the added bonus talent of producing amazing food! Our children were enthralled as were we with the "SHOW" - our meal!

The overall decor and service was very nicely presented and enjoyable, our chef Perri was a delight to have at our table for the cooking portion of the evening. Nobu, constantly breaking out into song, was equally as enjoyable. Food was clearly fresh and cooked perfecty amidst knife juggling antics from the chefs. Drinks menu was diverse and provided me...
