Stumbled across Ben Kei and were squeezed in on the condition we didn't have teppanyaki - obviously their speciality. Appetisers, yakitori and sushi were beautifully presented and delicious. Authentic Japanese food, it is not often you feel that when eating Japanese food in Europe so...More

Great food, fresh and beautifully presented. Unlike many "Japanese" restaurants who are run by non-Japanese, Ben Kai is authentic. The sushi dinner was superb and good value too. Recommend.

Being used to another teppanyaki in Scheveningen (Sui Sha Ya), we decided to try this one. Well I believe we just found one of the best Japanese we ever had. The moment you enter, you actually step in Japan. A warm welcome from the owner...More

Last week dinner with business associates and had a great evening. Not a show like some circus Japanese chefs make but excellent quality food, plenty of it and displayed nicely. Thanks for the great evening

Teppan yaki is more than juggling food on a hot plate, it's offering food at the right time in a way to preserve quality. That's exactly what Ben Kei (both in The Hague and in Rotterdam) has been doing for decades: setting the standard. As...More
