The last few times I've been here my dining mates and I were underwhelmed. They used to be amazing...don't know what happened

We've been going to Benkei for many years, and never had a complaint. It's very sad, & unfortunate, that lately both service and quality has declined. This past weekend, the service seemed totally off, people were getting up to ask for their dishes. If it were just a service issue i probably would not have even cared, but the sushi... More

it was inconsistent in the beginning...but over the last 2 years I haven't had a bad meal! The fish is always fresh. Love the "beginning noodles" and if you aren't in the mood for raw, their cooked food is just as good

Tasty affordable sushi in a nice small setting, not a sushi warehouse like so many others. This is the perfect start to a night out in Northport. The staff is friendly and always smiling. There is always a good special on the wall and we have yet to get something we haven't liked.

It was a Wednesday night and we were treating ourselves to dinner before seeing a play at the John Engman Theater down the road. We were seated quickly, but the dining room was freezing cold. The front door opens right into... More

The only, other, local place we come for 'Japanese,' now that we've learnt to order its "Japanese sushi" plate, not the A or B options - which are 'only' very good. Benkei's ramped-up its cold sake offerings, to delightful. The sashimi always is fresh & perfectly cut - no fat or integuments as found too often in LI sushi spots... More
