Good Hibachi Food

The food was standard Hibachi food, and enjoyable. Service was ok. My kids loved it and we left very satisfied. The restaurant is not cheap so be ready to spend some money.

I haven't been here for many years. The service was very good and food at a good pace. Onion soup was a good start and then the fun begins. Talented chef was entertaining and friendly. We had seafood selections.( scallops and salmon) since they are cooked in front of you they were done to perfection. Fried rice was very tasty... More

Benihana in the dulles town center plaza. Food is good, preparation show is the usual Benihana. Service is spotty at best, a. Lot of times it boils down to employee training. If you're in the restaurant and bar business I don't think I need to explain what a gin&tonic is. Price vs quality is a bit low. Mild recommendation

Everyone seems to do hibachi these days and while the food is good, the cooks are no longer oriental, staging is the norm and while service is good, you tend to feel rushed through the meal. If you order an appetizer, there is no time to enjoy it before you are rushed through the show. Too expensive.

We usually go to the Bethesda location but they were packed so we headed off to Dulles Town Center. Our Chef, Noe, was great. He didn't speak English but we bonded thru applause, head nods and grunts. I am always amazed how I am actually able to get filled up on this food! And Noe did a great job. My... More

Five of us had dinner at Benihana for a birthday. The chef barely spoke to us, there was no joking, and barely any "tricks." I haven't been to many Japanese restaurants, but have always had an entertaining meal. The rice and shrimp were good, but the Hibachi chicken was just chunks of very tough chicken. Hibachi steak and Teriyaki chicken... More

We got the lamest server. We brought the kids during our family reunion hoping to provide them a memorable experience. The only thing he did was slice and dice and one playful thing with the eggs. Spoiled from past visits where the server is playful and full of surprises at least down south and on cruises, This one made me... More

This was my first experience of Benihana, didn't quite know what to expect. We arrived quite late at night, the chef looked a bit tired but tried to give us a good show. He was quite funny always telling us to come back tomorrow when he messed up, the food was delicious. We were seated next to a couple who... More

Benihana's is a great destination restaurant as well as an overall great dining experience with the family or a group of friends.
