“One of few good selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

The quality and service is what makes a Restaurant special. I wish that they continue providing the same or better service and food quality.
The issue here in Riyadh that so many good Restaurants gave away their quality after a year or so and it is becoming a role of thumb.

“Great food and service but a bit on the pricey side”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Nice experience, especially in large groups or with extended family. The typical hibachi show is always nice and enjoyable. Didn't try the sushi but enjoyed the various flavors of hibachi, especially the 'spicy chicken'. But expect hibachi prices starting at SAR 110 or so and up to SAR 170 ish for Filet Mignon.

Very nice atmosphere and the kids enjoyed it.

“I Love the restaurant hate the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Benihanas all over the world are cheaper than the one here in riyadh. I love this restaurant but like so many restaurants here they open something new and god and milk the customers for every penny they have. the food is good no doubt about it, but the price really needs to be worked on, i think it would attract more return guests if they did. but if you're going this place is really good,

tip

When the chef starts cooking on the grill tell him to use teriyaki or oyster sauce instead of the traditional soya sauce it well absolutely change the entire dish and make it delicious!! ;)

“A pleasant evening with good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Unlike some of the other reviewers, I did not see the flying knives show. However, the food was top class...very fresh fish and a wide variety of dishes, served by very polite and unobtrusive staff. The noodles were also delicious. I'm sure this would be a great place to hold a business lunch or celebration dinner. Thank you Benihana!
