Went there for our son's birthday dinner and had a great time, tip- make a reservation if you have more than 3 people (we had 6) which luckily I had made one. The chef for our table was great he made it lots of fun and kept our 2 year entertained. Lots of food and fun. Recommend for any occasion.

Portion sizes where not up to price. Excellent experience and great food. Tight fit at table with little room to move not alone eat.

Boyfriend had always told me how great an experience he had had at a Benihana's in GA, so i decided to take him there for his birthday celebration dinner. This place was a JOKE! The hibachi cook only spoke to tell us what he was putting on the grill, no real showmanship was involved. I was very disappointed with lack of entertainment for a special nite out. Also, the food was mediocre at best. No flavor!!

Benihana restaurants are just plain fun. This location at the main mall in Columbus, OH is no exception. Our hibachi table sat 8. We were greeted by our server who took our orders. A bit later our personal chef arrived with a cart of ingredients and a good 20 minutes of entertainment as he prepared our entrees. The show alone was practically worth the cost. Our group ranged in age from 8 to 52 and everyone had fun. We all enjoyed the best zuchini we've ever had. Shrimp, steak, and chicken all excellent as well.

This is the best Japanese steakhouse period! The minute you come in they ask you if its a special occasion and they make sure they celebrate you. The cooks are all awesome and the garlic sauce they use compared to other yum-yum is anazing. Everything is QUALITY...and if you subscribe to their email list they send you great offers and a 30 dollar gift card for your birthday! Eat here!!!
