This is an excellent place. The service is fantastic. We had two waiters for the two of us! The food was incredible. Try the miso soup. Delicious!

This restaurant in the Hotel Nikko in Polanco was highly recommended by the concierge and another friend. It is Japanese with a very complex menu that is poorly translated into English. The wait staff could not explain the various options adequately. The sushi selections were per piece and very expensive. We sat in the dining room at 6:30 pm and were the first ones in the restaurant. Soon after a very loud group was seated very near and talked loudly on a cell phone throughout dinner. This made the experience less than delightful. We were asked to order immediately after being seated and we requested a few minutes to look at the menu. It was difficult to get the wait staff to return for the drink order. There was another very long wait after that to order the food. My wife ordered tempura which was brought to a side table long before my order of Benkay rib eye,(thin and unappealing with miso sauce),came. Needles to say the tempura was cold. It had to be sent back and subsequently arrived warm,but soggy. I think it was microwaved. Did not want to try anything after that. The cost of the food was very pricey for the quality and service.

It is good, everything is mini even the tables and place to seat. Go if you are near by, if not try going to Lomas or Santafe. They have better Japanese choices.

It is expensive but it is the best sushi in Mexico City.

... and that's why I keep coming back. Truth of the matter is Benkay has the best fish and traditional dishes of any Japanese restaurant I've been to in Mexico City. They really have the lot: imported fish, local fish, sushi dishes, hot dishes, traditional meals, Japanese beers, a wide range of Sake, very good service and a very very nice setting.

But... it is expensive. A full meal at Benkay with beers (no sake) will cost around USD 100 per person (and it can easily go over if you're inspired). So enjoy, but proceed with caution (unless you're not the one paying for it).

5 stars for the food / service / ambiance... 4 stars for the price.
