I'm not a great fan of Sushi still I wanted to tryout other type of Japanese food and so we went to Benihana, Schaumburg, IL. I was thrilled after knowing that the food will be prepared on the table itself and served. We ordered Sake ( cold- Hana Fuji Apple), Hibachi spicy chicken and Hibachi Shrimps along with Rainbow and... More

We went to Benihana as part of our "world tour" of Chicago, so this was part of our trip to Japan. The food was fresh, the grills clean, and our chef very entertaining. My grandsons loved it! The 4 year old kept calling the chef a food ninja. They were so excited that it made the price worth it. It... More

Good location. Easy access from interstate. Very clean restaurant with good servers. The cooks on the habatchi are usually full of personality.

My daughter picked Benihana's for her birthday dinner. We were not disappointed! The food was fresh, the grill was clean...and our server Tom was quite funny and skilled with a knife. Sometimes you can leave these places that cook inn front of you smelly like a hibachi grill and onions...we did not! Meaning the ventilation was good! They even took... More

Celebrated my daughters graduation from college and she wanted to go to Benihana . I have been to several restaurants like this one and like the concept. This one was a big disappointment. The "chef" was nice but not very entertaining and the food was so bland. No flavor. Most of our group and the filet steak. It was ok... More

My wife and I were on a weekend getaway to Chicago for the weekend. I have been before but this was the first time my wife had ever been to Benihana. The atmosphere and entertainment were both great, and the food was excellent. I had Chateaubriand for the first time ever, and it was without a doubt the best steak... More

Japanese dining with tableside cooking and entertainment. The consistency of the food and presentations is impressive. This is a wonderful place to dine when there is a large group. The sushi bar also provides plenty of variety.

I always enjoy the fresh vegetables with chicken and.or beef served from the hibachi. I did notice that there are new spicy entrees on the menu now but neither of us eat spicy food. Lunch prices were great for Hibachi and plenty of food. Dinner menu was also available but we didn't want that much food.

My husband and I went there this last Saturday just to go to dinner. I set up the reservation on OpenTable, which was ssooo quick and easy. Once we got there we were seated within 2 minutes. Our first round of drinks took a little bit longer than I had liked but tasted good none the less. After that service... More
