Solid choice, you never really go wrong with Benihana!

The food is good, the presentation was fun, and the experience fits the bill. When the team of four I was with says they all wanted something different: Seafood, Beef, Japanese, and Thai. I thought Benihana! The person wanting Thai food was the only one that missed out. They said the lobster... read more

Came with friends for lunch at Benihana. Staff service excellent and the taste of foods delicious! No wonder why this is a chain of restaurants. Cook was very professional and creative. Great show even during lunch hour. Will certainly return!

Benihana in Schaumburg has always been great - every time we go. This time was no exception. Food was consistent from the many times we have been here.

However I would recommend this place become somehow expensive if you add drink to the food... More

Although the food and sushi we got was excellent, the drinks are way overpriced (but worth it if you want to pay the extra money) and the service was bad on the hostess part. Me and my group (six of us) got there on time for our reservation and ordered drinks at the bar since we could not be seated... More

Benihana delivers on the expected, it's a solid place to go for a reliable experience. This particular visit I noticed the portions seemed small and everything lacked spices, salt especially. But it's benihana all the way and expectations were met ask around. Very Solid, will likely be back.

We thought of having Sushi and went to this place on a Saturday afternoon. The restaurant was not so crowded and we had to share the table with a couple of other guests. The service was good although we had to wait for the chef to arrive. The wait time was a little more than usual. We ordered a couple... More

It's ten dollars for lunch here, and they offer lunch seven days a week! You still get the "show" with your lunch--they cook on a griddle in front of the diners...you know, the Benihana spectacle. For my daughter's birthday we brought about sixteen people. They accommodated us around two tables with two chefs. They gave the kids sundaes, and geisha... More

this was a fun place for dinner. A dinner and show, what is not to love. Prices were reasonable. Portions are somewhat small, but the show is well worth it.

Food was good, no complain. But i would rather had more peaceful dinner with colleague. Too much hassle on same table and ambience not my style. If you enjoy watch chef cooking in front of you, then you should try this.
