Very good, but...

On tuesdays and thursdays, there is a 'Sushi night' which is a fantastic deal. Am I getting used to it ? I had it many times but the last was slightly less enthusiastic than before

It was a beautiful night in dubai and my husband and I were looking for somewhere close to our hotel to sit outside. we saw the sign for benihana and decided to just grab some sushi. Wrong!! Once seated, we were shown an all-you-can-eat menu and after pricing out food and drink, it made sense to go that route. Our... More

I took my college to the restaurant for supper. It's a good experience for someone that has never been before. You get plenty of food, cooked by your table chef. It's a quirky experience that everyone should make.

The food was very good. Great fun having the chef cool the food in front of us. Nice being on a big table, ensures you interact with others enjoying their food aswell which makes it nice and social. Staff were all fantastic. Value for money was brilliant. Highly recommended. Will definitely return :)

That's my preferred Japonise restaurant in Dubai. I'm going there for the last 8 years. Tried so many places and still this restaurant keeps in its first place on my personal opinion. The ambiance could have been better. Unless you are at the tapaniaki table otherwise it makes you feel that you are sitting in the corridor. (: but what... More

We got a nice table for the 8 of us, after having had a nice Apéro at the patio (the frozen beer is a must). The service was very attentive and our chef exeptionally entertaining. They also had no problem that our girls shared a entree. The food was standard good Benihana quality.

Nothing really wrong with this restaurant but nothing stood out either. Ordered the miso soup which was just bland, bland, bland, Tried the Benihana salad which was a bit better. And finished with the chicken teriyaki which was the tastiest but again, didn't stand out at all. Our server was kind enough to offer us a free dessert from the... More
