Food AND entertainment!

The spectacle of the chef cooking can be a little over the top depending on which chef you get, but it is thoroughly entertaining and... read more

Booked my husband's birthday on a Friday night, reservation was great. Hotel known for its restaurant and parking at the basement can be full in most weekends. Reserved the teppanyaki banquets, its a table of 8, so you will have to wait for the other patrons to arrive and then you will be seated (which was spot on with our... More

What a fun night we had, thoroughly enjoyed the food and meet some great new friends. Staff were really friendly and help with the selection of food, we had the banquet which I would highly recommend on the first visit. Our chef was a great entertainer, which added to the nights fun

I had dinner here on my Birthday and it seems at least five other people were celebrating their Birthday here too. The chefs were polite, entertaining and generous. The Cherry blossom teppanyaki platter was great and the seafood was fresh. I managed to catch food in my mouth and will apply for the seal show at seaworld now! The cocktail... More

Benihana has a wonderful feel to the restaurant. The staff are friendly and the food is fantastic. Make sure you go to the restaurant hungry because there is always plenty of food. If you aren't full from your dinner, I highly recommend the deep fried ice-cream with Carmel sauce.......OMG it is amazing!!

The banqet selections are great, especially being able to share amongst your friends and giving you a chance to have a variety of dishes. The staff is what makes the experience memorable. From Kernan our very entertaining chef, Nobu which lead an entire room sing-a-long for our friends birthady and finally Gota our dining server, very friendly and attentive. Thanks... More

First time here but not to a Teppanyaki meal. I would of rated this place 3.5 stars if i could but it doesn't quite deserve 3. We rang to make a booking earlier in the day for 6.00 and were told only 5.30 or 7.00 were available so we took 5.30. A few hours later we were rung back to... More

Visited Benihana for the first time recently to celebrate a friends birthday! Was absolutely blown away by the upbeat almost festival like atmosphere. The staff were amazing, and were the epitome of good customer service! Gota, our waiter was charming, ever helpful and friendly! Kernan, the chef was such a crack up! So cheeky and charismatic, seriously could not have... More

We were well looked after by our waitress April, and chef Dennis provided an awesome show and a delicious dinner. The pinnacle of the night was the entertainment provided by Nobutaka the rock star. Such an entertaining and memorable experience you won't get elsewhere.
