S-L-O-W service! Very small eel roll that fell apart when I picked it up with chopsticks and small portion of seaweed salad. Hubby ordered a "special meal" of steak and scallops. The steak, scallops, and veggies were flavorful, but the portion was small. The fried rice was greasy. The 2 little shrimp were overcooked and tough. He was never given... More

My wife and I enjoyed our dinner. I started with a half order of a spicy tuna roll. Tasted good but was trying to fall apart. Soup was excellent. Salad was good. Had the chicken. Cooked perfectly and was seasoned well. I really liked the two sauces that they pour up for each guest. Our chef was okay but not... More

I have been to a number of Benihanas around the country and have had a few really entertaining chef's. Alas our chef today was not in the same class but was still very funny without all the tricks. But he was a great chef and served us a very tasty treat. One of the best fried special rices I have... More

In Little Rock. The chef put on a very good show. The steak and rice and shrimp and rice were excellent. This place has been in business quite a while and they have it down pat. You will a fun experience and get yourself some very good food. Maybe a tad pricey but, I have never eaten a Japenese Hibachi... More

The food is good but the show put on by the chef is the real attraction. Watching the chef toss eggshells and catch them in his hat along with the speed and skill displayed cooking makes it fun to watch. This can make getting your meal take a while so this is not the place to go if you are... More

I went to this establishment tonight with my husband. The food was decent. Pretty expensive considering it was just average hibachi in comparison to the other local places I have been to. The chef did not do many "tricks", however it was pretty late so he was probably just tired. I will probably not go back, but it was okay... More

Overall the restaurant is pretty decent. We had one chef who was in such a hurry.. I'm not sure if he was the only one or what but other than that the chefs are entertaining. We like to sit in the bar area unless its a special occasion. Some nights they have a one man band performing which is nice.... More
