“Lacking”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

My husband and I have been to benihana restaurants in different cities. We know what to expect. At this location, the waitress hardly came around and got the orders for the table wrong. The chef was late and we had to wait for the griddle to heat up. It was turned off in error. Save your money.

“Good food with a show”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

Food is good and tasty.
We were impressed by the chef who was cooking to the next table, as our chef was tired and in bad mood.
In short terms you must be lucky to have THE GOOD chef who makes your dinner funny.
Another bad point is that the waiters are very stressed to take your order and ensure that the program will not be longer than what is expected in term of timing!
Anyway, we had a good night, sharing some discussions with the other people around the table and the food is good.

“Theatrical Dining in NTC”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

A great place to visit for a genuinely entertaining meal. Busy all the time so it is best to book but it is worth the wait in the bar where the cocktails are good with a saki spin. The main event is undoubtedly the teppanyaki experience where the chefs perform a great routine whilst preparing the food at your table. As everything is prepared in front of you it gives great scope to customise if you want and our chef was very accomodation. All in it is a great place for the experience and the food is pretty good.
