Atmosphere is perfect. Food is authentic and fresh. Service is the best part. Everything is done with meticulous detail. Kenny has created the perfect Japanese restaurant with all of his hard work.

I called and ordered our food, I mispronounced a dish name, boy she laughed at me, giving the fact that I barely understood her English, what an altitude she had. This restaurant is going down!

We love sushi. We have been going to Benten since it was located in Mt. Sinai. We have never been disappointed. We have essentially tried everything on the menu over the years. We have traveled to Japan twice and we know good Japanese food. We...have no problem driving 1/2 hour to get good sushi, even though there are more places to get sushi than ever before. Oishi kata desu nee.More

A FAVORITE with local foodies and Sushi fans. Everything is consistently fresh and perfectly prepared by or directly supervised by Ken. I have been going here for decades. Big beautiful restaurant with plenty of off street private parking. Be sure to try the Clam Miso...soup.More

Unfriendly place. Service is limited and food is just ok. It feels as though the place wants you to hurry up and leave.

I used to go here alot but, the last few times the tuna was like leather and obviusly not fresh. The premium sake is very good, they need to step up there game.

I would go out of my way to get sushi here but the last two times it has gone down hill, the Tuna was stiff and I couldn't eat it, not what I have come to expect from Bentons. They have a very good premium...sake but, that didn't help with the food. You have been warnedMore

Not even joking. It could be because the chef makes sure that they get a lot of their fish direct from the fishermen on Long Island, but here’s the thing: you can actually bite the fish straight through, it’s that fresh. If you’re one to...“buy local” it’s a win-win.More
