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.

Nothing really wrong with this restaurant but nothing stood out either. Ordered the miso soup which was just bland, bland, bland, Tried the Benihana salad which was a bit better. 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

Visited the restaurant on a Wednesday night for all you can drink and eat seafood teppanyaki. The selection of food was shrimps, salmon, hamour, king fish, vegetables and fried rice. The food was really good and so was the dessert. The live cooking was entertaining, though the noise level is quite loud it is worth it.

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
