Description: The highly trained Misono chefs are known as entertainers as well as culinary masters and create an unforgettable dining experience every time as they slice, dice and juggle utensils, while tossing prawns and eggs. A range of teppanyaki banquets are prepared at your table featuring combinations of fresh seafood, tender steak and succulent chicken. All banquets are served with miso soup, followed by salad, prawn appetiser, hibachi vegetables and steamed or fried rice. Step inside and live the moment. If you were taught never to play with your food then perhaps it’s time to break the rules. Expected the unexpected...amplified at Misono.

Always a fun night out to go to Benihana's. Tables of 8 and it's great to meet new people to chat to and watch the chef throw things at them. Watch out for the fried rice flying everywhere and the volcano of onion!! very cool tricks. Only downside is the amount of onion they serve with every meal.

While in Surfer's Paradise (well named) on the Gold Coast in Australia, we were invited to join friends at this Benihana Japanese Restaurant in the Marriott Hotel.
What an experience. We were sat around a large cooking plate (approx 6feet x 4feet). There were nine people sitting round three sides while the chef prepared our food in front of us.
He put on a magnicicent, and humourous show, with utensils and shakers flying up in the air. You just have to see the culinary skills combined with a cooking show. The whole meal is cooked in front of you and you are dining all evening as he prepares the food. Just an amazing experience. A little more expensive than other dining but, I encourage anyone to try this experience at least once.

Although not a cheap dinner (approx $55 for onion soup, some prawns, chicken fried rice, and steak and chicken), it was delicious and a great experience. Our chef was hilarious and danced, sang, and threw prawns at us for us to catch in our mouthes. Definitely worth doing if you haven't ever been to tepanyaki before.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. Benihana is quite an entertaining dining experience and our teppanyaki chefs really love to put on a show for everyone!

The restaurant offers an Earlybird special for $30.00 per person where you can choose from hibachi chicken, steak or tofu and the banquet is served with onion soup, Benihana salad, hibachi vegetables and rice. Due to the popularity of this menu, we have extended the special so that it is available at any time of the evening when you dine between Monday - Thursday nights from now until 30 June 2012.

See you at Benihana again soon!

great value in the early bird special for $30.00pp. Kids loved the show and most of the food. We were seated with another family with young children so the communal dining suited us. go for an early session with kids and a later if just adults. goes for about an hour which again is fine with children but did seem a little rushed for adults. book ahead as they are always busy. great food and service, very accommodating with allergies .

All of the team here at the resort are so happy to hear you and your family enjoyed your recent dining experience at Benihana.

It is a very popular restaurant especially with families as the teppanyaki chefs do put on quite a show which the children always love!

Our $30.00 per person earlybird special has been so popular that we are now offering it at any time of the evening between Monday - Thursday nights until 30 June.

We hope to see you and your family at Benihana again soon and thank you for taking the time to post your comments on Tripadvisor.

Went for a birthday dinner on the early bird special which runs until June. Excellent value for 30.00 pp we had the most wonderful dinner anyone could wish for. The lovely girl who took our booking asked if it was a special occasion and when i advised a birthday she organised a decorated cake with the birthday girl's details. It was terrific. The chef made a fuss of her and provided lots of birthday surprises integrated with his fantastic show of cooking. The food is fabulous and the 30.00 early bird was more than enough for our party. Gorgeous fun atmosphere and I would recommend to anyone ! You don't have to go early for the early bird either.
