“Good Food Theatrics”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

I enjoyed my meal at Benihana. I had the steak & lobster which was good. Since it was cooked on the same grill & at the same time as other dishes I wondered if all the food tasted the same.

The fried rice was delicious & cooked with oil & butter. Better to not have seen how much fat was in it.

The Hibachi chef was hilarious with his theatrics. I was disappointed that he didn't throw food at anyone by the grill.

It was nice & definitely worth the experience.

“One of the best Japanese Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

A waiting time 45 minute to be seated, and this time we were in the bar where we could taste selections of dishes accompanied by hot saki. The service is excellent and very attentive to customer requirements. The wide selection of menu and the chef very professional and pleasant with their juggling and the exquisit food. We recomend for all family.
