Good Food, Pricey!

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... read 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.

Seems as if every table had at least one birthday celebration during this visit...including mine! Tip...go online and sign-up for their birthday coupon...you'll get a $30.00 off coupon. Makes it more affordable to order the surf & turf for the birthday person...or spilt the check among those attending...if you wish. The show performed by the chef doesn't change much over... More

Went to Benihana Japanese Grill in Schaumburg with my wife. Benihana restaurants always put on a good show and the food is pretty good! We had salmon with avocado sauce, nice meal with lots of side to go along with it. This is a great family place, meeting place for friends or a nice date location. Prices are fair and... More

This restaurant puts on a show with your dinner, however, it really isn't worth the price. While the food is good, the portions are small. The price is a little high.

As a member of business group who visited this establishment, the meal and presentation is what one would expect of a "Benhiana" regardless of where it may be located if you had ever dined at one before. Quality of the food is good. The order of presentation is predictable in the "Benihana" style.

Tough to please everyone (and I was in a large group) but the "special" menu made it easy. In all honest, way too much food. But it was all very tasty and interesting to watch the making and presentation of the dishes.

This is just a fun restaurant. They cook at your table and the food is really outstanding. A dinner and show, something you don't find too often anymore. Go there and have a good time.
