The Food was Perfect!

We brought our son here as the 3rd surprise on his two day Birthday spectacular. We all loved it, great showmanship and the food was perfection. Wish we had one closer b/c we would be frequent visitors!

Great food drama here. Beef used for grill frying was OK..mid range grain fed average blah tasting. Don't go here if you want interesting, nuanced meat. Meat did not even taste like it came from midwest. Costco cuts taste better. Still $70 for good entertainment is not too bad.

We brought our daughter here for her 5th birthday and she was thrilled the entire time! The chef was attentive to everyone and the waitstaff was prompt and courteous at every turn. They even handled the birthday cake well, excluding getting it back in the box--that was a disaster. The only reason I'm not giving them a full five points... More

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 was good, my shrimp and steak were very... 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.

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
