Good sushi buffet, but expensive

Visited on a Thursday night for Benihana's sushi and Japanese buffet. We selected the option with free flow of house beverages. The service was good and the food plentiful and of high quality. As well as the sushi the tempura was particularly good. While it was a nice dinner and an enjoyable... read more

Best sushi in town. Tapinyaki nights and Sushi nights are the best. Waitresses are very friendly. Variety of food satisfy everyone.

This is my second attempt to book @ Benihana Resturant, the first time I tried to book over the phone a Filipino girl answered the phone, she was not polite and behaving like making me a favor, she did not get me the table and the time I was looking for, instead of trying her best, her statement was all...

I found this restaurant by accident and was elated to try it being that I haven't been to a Benihana in years since leaving the U.S. I must say this isn't the same as the ones in the U.S. but it's still good. The concept is the same but the packages/specials are quite different of course. Very nice restaurant with... 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

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 adequate, and price about what you'd expect for Dubai.... 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.
