We had a reservation for 7:30 on a Saturday night. We were seated right away, but an hour later we still didn't have a chef in front of us to cook our food. I asked for the manager, who came over and with no apology, let us know that our chef would be by shortly. The chef was great once... More

I always enjoy myself when eating at this Benihana's. The food & atmosphere are always awesome. I encourage anyone who is in the area to go by & give it a try, you won't be disappointed. I will be honest, it can be a little costly.

My wife and I came here to celebrate my birthday and to enjoy some good food. Be sure you make a reservation to avoid waiting for a spot at the hibachi grill. Halfway through the meal, the guy next to me accidently dropped his beer all over me and my plate of food. He offered to pick up our check... More

With our daughter home from college and a couple of dear friends we haven't seen in a while we decided to go out for a great dinner. Can't beat Benihana's right? Wrong. We arrived at 7:20 for our 7:30 reservation to find a lobby full of frustrated people. Seems they had 7:00PM reservations and had still not been seated. We... More

This was a birthday dinner and was a lot of fun. The fried rice and steak and shrimp was great and the ginger salad was also a nice addition. The cooks are entertaining and give everyone a good laugh.

This is a decent hibachi restaurant. We were staying at the hotel for Mother's Day, we couldn't get a hibachi grill because it was so packed. Had to eat at the bar, I think we got quicker service this way though. But we had to pay the same amount without getting the experience and fun of being in front of... More

Food is good here but I wouldn't consider this this place the best hibachi restaurant in Little Rock.

I love the fried rice. The cook was entertaining. It was very loud due to the exhaust fans. I like to take my family here because of portion size and it also is like a dinner and a show.

It has been many years since I was in a Benihana; it was always a favorite and this restaurant didn't let me know. I ate dinner and lunch there, and both times the service was great, the chefs fantastic, and the prices very reasonable for the high quality food that was prepared and served at the table.
