Went on a groupon deal. Not impressed. Slow service (lady was serving too many tables). Place was too hot. Cocktails were warm. Food was not great. The actual chef part was like 20 mins and the guy was ok. I've been to way better.

NO WAY. Even with the 241 offer what you receive in regards to quantity/quality is beyond POOR. The customer service was also POOR and unprofessional. When I asked for the manager twice before we even entered the venue. The front of house, then decided to sort the matter out regarding the GROUP ON offer. A rice dish was also cooked... More

I had a nice supper here to celebrate my birthday. The show cooking is incredibly impressive and the food was good although the price was somewhat over the top. This is a reliable option but is quite expensive given what's on offer.

The food is delicious and the chefs are very entertaining, it was a relaxed atmosphere. I have been to this branch twice now and the Piccadilly also twice and to be honest i prefer the Piccadilly branch. Piccadilly... More

I first experienced Benihana in San Francisco - U.S.A. , approximately 20 years ago - Since that time, both during my visits past and just recently to their Piccadily outlet, I can definitely recommend the restaurant for their great service, outstanding entertainment, and of course sumptuous food!

Had a deal via Groupon for half price. Very good tasty food, cooked and served in front of you with great pizzazz. However the drinks are expensive, and service is added on the original price, so it all mounts up. This branch is all underground so no natural light, I prefer the Piccadilly branch as it feels more airy, and... More

I've heard about Benihana from Tv shows and it was exactly as expected but service was a little poor and unfriendly.

Description
Elegant Japanese styling and delicious fresh food await you at London's Benihana Restaurant.

Benihana is a favourite not only of tourists but of locals fresh from the nearby offices, relaxing with colleagues or indeed entertaining clients.

In keeping with the Benihana brand the chain began in New York way back in 1964, this means that this year, 2014 is our 50th anniversary.

This superb Japanese restaurant swaps the conventional kitchen for a central hibachi grill around which diners watch their food being prepared before their eyes.

Boasting a wide range of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes traditionally cooked Benihana offers a unique Japanese dining experience not to be missed.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
