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!

Excellent Buffet

As usual the food is consistently good with a professional and friendly staff to complement. It would have been a five star 🌟 if only my experience with the head chef was far more pleasant regarding a simple question. Overall, worth trying out the food if you haven‘t done so already.

I was invited by a few friends who'se been long working in Dubai to have a dinner in Benihana. We came during their Teppanyaki night, and when we arrived, there were few guests waiting for the table inside the Teppanyaki area, so I thought that the restaurant must be good. I have tried different Japanese restaurant in different country but... More

When you want to eat good sushi, have couple of drinks and go home with out a max out credit card benihana is the prefect place. Good sushi selection great seaweed salad and you can spicy things up with some thai food from next door. Best deal in town
