Always like this place!

Food was awesome. I am a sushi lover, so I ordered sushi before our cook arrived. I ordered the spicy tuna roll (my fav...always tastes better in Louisiana though), cali roll, and some crunchy roll (had shrimp, crab, avocado). My husband ordered the steak and lobster and loved it. I ordered the... read more

Our chef spoke not a lick of English, and our server wasn't much better. Overall, the service was mediocre at best. Our chef wasn't personable and had zero flare. The only thing he did aside from cook, was make a heart out of the rice. He didn't even place the spatula under the rice and make the heart beat. Like...really???... More

Food is good and the cook at your table is quite entertaining. As a family dinner or a date, it's a great place to have a meal.

Took my kids on a lunch date the waiter didn't meet basic needs such as my son requested a spoon that he never received after he had asked 3x he asked for a refill on his drink and never got it. The food as always was great the cook and exceeded our expectation of service

Ordered the special chicken and shrimp. 20 bucks. Turned out I got charged another 3.50 for the rice that came with it. Chicken was dry and only 6 small shrimp. 30.00 plus out the door. Never again. What a rip off.

all the food was very good, we ate too much. The showmanship was good, not excellent but it was good. Met nice couple from Little Rock that ate with us. Everyone we came across was very friendly in town. will definitely come back because it was so good

Service to be seated and order was slow in my opinion. The soup was good. Did not like the salad. Fried rice was extra money. The rice was good. Overall I was disappointed with the food and the price.

We recently moved from California to Northwest Arkansas. We were completely thrilled to find a Benihana's 4 hrs away! This place is hands down the best hibachi around. We have been to 2 other places in Fayetteville and they just do not compare to Benihana's taste and quality! We will continue to drive the distances because it's worth it!
