At Benihana, Al Bustan Rotana Dubai, enjoy authentic Japanese steak, seafood and sushi as well as indulge in exciting theme nights and be impressed with live teppanyaki shows. This spacious American-Japanese restaurant is located near the lobby and serves inspirational creations like sushi, sashimi and Makimono rolls. Do not miss the fast Teppanyaki show, where chefs flip shrimps’ tails into their hats and cut sizzling food faster than the eye can see. Guaranteed entertainment for the whole family!

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.

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.

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
