Good sushi buffet

I had the sushi buffet, not the traditional teppanyaki. Buffet was above average for a sushi buffet. Good selection, though would have appreciated a few more fish varieties. Not the most comfortable layout - tables crammed in all over the place, and I was seated at a teppanyaki table. Service was... read more

My partner and I have been here on two separate occasions. On both occasions we were really impressed by the quality of service. Living in Dubai, you experience good service, but very few employees make an effort to engage with you and make your night memorable. Such is not the case for the staff at Benihana. From the moment we... More

This place has been our top choice place ..a must go eat.. Amazing food, great atmosphere. We had been to the other branch - Dubai Marina but I must say - that the Al Bustan branch is still the best. Definitely, the place to go for Tepanyaki. Entertainment value of the chef cooking antics. The place has a culture and... More

I am not the only one who praises this restaurant and especially on sushi nights. The ambiance is always nice and the food is just amazing. The variety offered is unlimited and in addition to the tasty sushi and sashimi i love their shrimps tempura. A real delight.

We enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant with the cooking at the table and the other guest inter mingling as the cook did an excellent job preparing everyone's meal. We enjoyed this very much. You will not go wrong if you decide to eat here.

I've been to Benihana many times here in the states, but it was a different experience in Dubai. The service, as at most restaurants in Dubai, was excellent. The prices were a bit higher, but again, everything is there. We found the portions to be larger. We had several dinners there and each time thought it was much more food... More

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
