Dinner at Benihana, Sterling, Va.

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

But the chef was not ready to serve us until 8:45 which we didn't know if it were a norm for Sat night there. Then... More

It is your typical Benihana chain....very expensive, same grill tricks, and average food. This time....after our food was served, they put on a cold blower? Our food was cold really fast! And then we were rushed out...felt more "get them in and get them out" then relaxing.

I am familiar with the hibachi grill cooking and enjoy it when I can. I was impressed with the variety of selection of sushi and dishes that they offered. They even offered half rolls for the sushi. The other group was a family who was celebrating a birthday and was very pleasant. I had the half dragon roll and the... More

My husband and son and I go here mostly for the happy hour in the lounge area. The drinks, appetizers and sushi are amazingly priced for happy hour. The sushi is always fresh and delicious. Also the kids menu is a bit pricey, but is worth it for the amount you get. I ended up eating my son's left overs... More

The service was a little slow, but the food was very good. Our chef was entertaining and our waiter was particularly friendly. To our surprise, because we happened to be celebrating our anniversary, we even received a complimentary photograph and ice cream. If we are in that area again, we would not hesitate to dine there again.
