Listen as razor-sharp blades slice and dice through mouth-watering steak and tender chicken. Take in the aroma as savory vegetables, shrimp and lobster sizzle before your eyes.

Fun visit

This is always a fun visit for birthdays or parties. The fried rice is great as well as some of the steak and chicken dishes. The onion soup is also very yummy. Lunch portions and prices are very reasonable and almost as much food as dinner.

We were given a $40 gift certificate for the 2 of us to eat at Benihana. We drank water, had 1 appetizer and 2 entrees and wound up with a $70 bill. We came in at about dinner hour. We were given a choice of waiting 45 minutes to experience "the show" or eating in the lounge. We were hungry,... More

We sat down at 6:45 and finished at 9:00. Service was extremely slow. Our chef left the table for 3-5 minutes and the bus person took over for a few minutes. Slow cooking, slow with drinks. Forgot the 3 steamed rice for our party of 8. The chef's spatula fell on the floor. Zuchinni was mushy. The salmon was old... More

I go here quite regularly. I always go for express lunch. You don't get the show. They just get down to business. I have to say its quite fast sometimes I am in and out in 20 mins and 30 mins at the most. I eat fast and don't play around. The lunch staff is usually on point as well.... More

I was really disappointed in the lack of atmosphere and service after an hour and twenty minute wait for a table. Large groups filed past us as they left but we were left to wait for a ridiculously long time. There were many vacant hibachi tables available by the time we were taken to our seat which was pretty irritating.... More

We returned for our second visit. It's a wonderful option to celebrate a special occasion, this case, my daughter's birthday. The server and chef were excellent and the food was amazing. It's ideal for a group our size (7 people) since we had a table to ourselves.

based on great reviews I turned out to be a bit disappointed. The staff is not the issue, they are friendly and fast, the food is also served fast and the price for the dish, being salad, soup, main and desert with green tea was $ 28. But what was disappointing was the fact that my thin sliced teriyaki beef... More

We were four for dinner. Our friends had steak and shrimp and my husband the lobster tails. I had the samurai treat which was filet mignon and shrimp. The lobster was succulent and my filet very tender. Our fantastic server was Lu. As other Tripees have noted, Lu was enthusiastic, very friendly and shared that it was his last night... More
