“It's predictably good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

What can you say about Benihana's? The first time I went to one was probably decades ago and I still can remember how cool it was to see a cook rapidly slice and fling food into bowls around a stainless steel grill. Somehow it still has that same allure today. It's fun. The food at the Salt Lake City Benihana's has been solidly good each time we've eaten there. They get busy even on the weekdays so call for reservations. A little tip. Register yourself on their website and get a $30 birthday gift certificate to use during your birthday month.

“Our anniversary hangout”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

We went to Benihana on our wedding night, and go back each year for our anniversary. We enjoy the enthusiastic atmosphere, the sounds and action. Its very entertaining to have your food prepared right there in front of you. Our most recent visit was for our 24th anniversary, and we haven't gotten bored yet. Its a little pricey, but the food is excellent and the portions are generous. Be sure to add on the Hibachi grilled rice instead of the plain steamed rice!! They have a sushi bar, although we don't do sushi. :)
