Benihana Fun

Of course, part of Benihana's charm is watching the chef cook at your table. But my favorite is the incredible freshness and healthy meal you enjoy, I wished it weren't so expensive, or we would visit more often.

WE have been going down town on business for months. Every time we go by Benihana's we say lets go there when all this stuff is over. So we did. It was not a let down for sure. We got one of the big grills with two other parties. They were all nice and one small boy who was fun... More

The food was very good, and of course the cooks are all well trained and entertaining. The house saki was excellent! They have an extensive saki selection, but when the house selection is that good it is hard to try others.

Great place to get some food if you enjoy the process of food preparation in front of your eyes. The chef was a bit tired and rushed the preparation a bit, but the food quality was still excellent.

It's the same as any Benihana around the world and they do it and do it well. We went late and you could tell that the chef was tired but the rest of the staff were charming and helpful. The drinks aren't great as they didn't seem to have a proper bar but you go there for the food and... More

Accidentaly stopped by to grab a bite, and decided to take a seat at the sushi-bar. Did not know what exactly what to take so I just asked Scott to surprize me! And he did!!! I cannot emphasize enough the rainbow of tastes in my mouth! Sometimes I did not know what I was eating, but Scott's surprizes kept on... More

Benihana is a restaurant that is an excellent choice when visiting a new location. The restaurant offers the same excellent quality food prepared with entertainment included. Asian restaurants are basically hit or miss in many cities. Unless you live there or know someone who does chances of choosing a terrible meal are extremely high. The quality at Benihana is always...

We come here to have my birthday dinner. This time we got the special package when they sing happy birthday to you in Japanese. The meal and experience was superb as usual.

great all you can eat sushi buffet during lunch. You cant ask for anything more with quality and selection! Remember to ask for the miso soup, i guess you have to ask for it rather than having it offered to you

It is a very nice place for Japanese food. While waiting for a table, we had a great talk with the sushi-men and he made us very good sushi. His name was Scott. The food was great and also the service. The place also receives stars sports athletes, specially from American football.
