Stopped in for lunch and had a great meal. I had their chicken teriyaki benito box and my husband had the salmon, both meals were very good. Our Server was very nice and friendly. Surprisingly, they get very busy during lunch so plan accordingly.

I took 3 friends for dinner to celebrate one of their birthdays. We made a reservation and when we arrived, we were seated immediately. Service here is excellent. The tappanyaki style dinner was very entertaining and the food was delicious. We really enjoyed the seafood - lobster, scallops, shrimp. The steak and chicken and the chicken fried rice were also...

I don't want to give more details, because the experience is really nice, and you have to see with your eyes. Good food. If you are celebrating something, they... More

I love the teppanyaki cooking style and entertainment that comes with it at Benihana. What is even better is that if sign up for their "club" you get a certificate good for $30 towards a meal on your birthday. The food is excellent, and it is cooked right in front of you so everything is fresh.

Whenever you want to make a special occasion memorable, this is the restaurant to visit in Concord Willows. Great food, cooked before you. The entertainment is worth the price. The drinks are fantastic.

Tried to make reservations for Mother's Day, wrong, went the day after. A little slower to sit us than usual. The show again was fun and the Chef did a good job flipping and throwing as he was cooking our food. Ordered the Surf Side which was delicious and plentiful, we also ordered the Crisp Sushi, delicious and the Rainbow... More
