“Great sushi, mediocre service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013 via mobile

I have had a variety of sushi rolls and they have all been wonderful. The calamari tempura is pretty good also. I have not been in the hibachi side of the restaraunt. The area with tables reminds me of a hotel bar. But hey it is attached to a hotel! Service is kinda slow but everyone is nice and friendly. No beers on tap which seems to be the thing in Japanese restaraunts.

“Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

We had a great experience. The sushi was good, the service was also good. The sushi chiefs was really neat watching them prepare the sushi. We sat at the sushi bar. We had 2 meals there.

“Great show good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Only problem is expect a wait of about 30 minutes if you arrive after 5:30 PM. The food is all good, typical made at your table Benihana food. I liked it all but some may not. I had the rice, teriyaki chicken and onion soup. All good. The show was neat with the server/chef showing us the ropes and egg shells disappear. Prices a little hi so realize you are paying for supper and a show going in. Better if you have more people because you get to share a table.

“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I first ate at the Benihana restaurant in North Little Rock over 4 years ago. And I've been hooked ever since. I think anyone who has ever eaten at a Benihana has heard of their Fried Rice dish. It's worth driving three hours from my home to see my daughter just to get to that Fried Rice dish!

But they also have very good chefs that put on quite a show for you. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to great food at the Benihana in North Little Rock near the downtown and the River Front.
