Benihana is the top tier of Japanese steakhouses. Their menu is very diverse with something for everyone. Their fried rice sets them apart as they season it better than others. We had the hibachi steak and it was cooked perfectly. The parking was free here as long as your ticket was validated by the restaurant. The only drawback is the... More

I dined at Benihana - Salt Lake in October, and have been coming here for at year 20 years intermittently. It is not easy to keep a high standard of quality for that length of time, but this team delivers again and again. Thank you Benihana!

I gave this 3 stars but could have gone to 4... but Benihana is Benihana, if you've been to them before this is no different than any other. You sit around the griddle, order you meal, get fried rice, watch the spinning egg trick, applaud the flashing blades of steel, marvel at them juggling pepper grinder and slicing and dicing... More

Downtown Location Took my nieces & nephews here - I was so sad this was their 1st & only experience of a hibachi grill. Very expensive bill for mediocre food & poor service.

Our meal was very average and our chef failed to put on a good show while cooking. It was very expensive and I would not recommend this to anyone.

The food is fresh and delicious, the drinks generous, the service fast and professional, and the chop/chop entertainment excellent. We had the shrimp and chicken special and thoroughly enjoyed everything which was served up. This was a great evening out, and we will not hesitate to return on our next trip to SLC. DG

This was our third trip to this Benihana and we will definitely return for more. The service and food has always been great, however, this trip the food was even better than I expected. Luis our chef was top notch and had the best personality and our servers were great too! Thank you for never disappointing!

Had an enjoyable and relaxing meal here with business colleagues. The atmosphere is fun and sociable with groups gathered around Teppanyaki table, the chefs make it fun with their juggling and cooking tricks. The food is simply delicious - fresh, cooked to order right in front of you and more than enough for the heartiest of appetites. We upgraded to... More

Like the food although the service was slow. There were light fixtures that were held in place with duct tape which made me wonder when the health inspector had last been there. A little pricy, but the food was excellent. Have the Las Vegas roll if you are a sushi eater! Ride the elevator for yucks and giggles - -... More
