In all fairness, the chef had offered free replacement after a handful of salt accidentally dropped on the steak I ordered which he was preparing, but I declined. After waiting for an hour for the 'teppenyaki show' to start, I have lost my enthusiasm for the experience. It was a disappointment as I am looking forward to this teppenyaki show.... More

Thursday was sushi night. The sushi was excellent and plentiful, huge variety on offer. The sous chefs were also taking orders on sashimi. Really impressed, the cooking tables were closed for the evening. But the prices and beverages were excellent as was the service. Only thing a bit off putting was the temperature it was freezing in the room with... More

I am not too fond of the Sushi served at the Benihana Restaurant in Al Bustan but the Teppanyaki Grills are very tasty and fun to visit. The live cooking is entertaining if you have never been there. It gets a bit boring as the tricks, shows and anything the chef does to liven up the crowd has been the... More

We love this restaurant and the atmosphere and whilst we appreciate the entertainment provided by the Chefs whilst cooking, they are just a little bit too noisy. Secondly, the teppanyaki is all cooked too quickly and served up too quickly. the whole idea is to savour each meat or fish as it is cooked, but the chefs seem to cook... More

Japanese food in the middle of Dubai's towers on a terrace. Very dedicated team, extensive choice with all Japanese classical dishes but nothing really exciting tastewise, just good.

Food at Benihana is always delicious. The atmosphere is great as the chefs are always doing their "shows" and jokes with the food, however the service is not too good - they reservation staff (for the restaurant) should have more care on dealing with guests.

Really enjoyed the Teppanyaki - great food plus entertaining chef. Miso soup, salad, prawns, salmon, hammour, chicken, steak, bean sprouts and mushrooms. All delicious and cooked to perfection. Great atmosphere. Amazing deserts! With the Rotana Card great value. Would recommend.
