Description: Prepare for a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Listen as razor-sharp blades slice through tender steak and juicy chicken. Take in the aroma of sizzling shrimp, lobster and savory vegetables. Or visit our sushi bar, where your sushi chef will prepare fresh nigiri, sashimi and specialty rolls, all with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine. .

Food here is fine, but bad service we got from the server. Will not go back. Rude server when she did not like our tip (b'cuz we were not drinking), she asked for more $$. Bad & inappropriate.

I appreciated the fact that the food wasn't saturated in butter and oil like a lot of hibachi grills, but I was disappointed that my meal didn't have much flavor. Even the dipping sauces were bland. The chef was entertaining and we received good service though.

If you go to its website and join the club (it's free), it will send you a $30 certificate when your birthday coming around. You can use on Mon. To Thr. Dinner for you only. In the end a birthday iced cream cake n staff sing a bday song for you is a nice touch. A picture will be taken n give to you; you can also download it for free too. If you like japanese table cooking, you will like here. If you want to order from the table, it's an option too. Just prepared a strong cooking small will stay on your cloth n hair for a while after you walk out from the restaurant.

Good is excellent, and the hibachi experience is fun and different. I love that they take a picture of the group with the cook's hat free for the bday person. Nice touch !!!
