Every year we go to Benihana, my daughter's choice for her birthday dinner. As usual, our Chef was friendly, was entertaining and our dinner was DELISH!

I have always been a fan of Hibachi and all the silliness that goes with them. Who doesn't want to laugh with the guy cooking your food. Unfortunately, this location no longer feels like fun. The chef was going through the motions, but there was...More

My daughter loves eating here. The show is fun and good is good. Lunch is the best deal, pay about 1/2 price. It may be a smaller portion but you get tons of food. Get the fried rice and add some mustard sauce- yummy!

I don't like the whole idea, throwing food at you like you're a seal at a zoo. A few times I wanted to throw some back. The whole concept is stupid if you ask me. You're also eating in the order that they choose to...More

Benihana is just as good as it has always been. The key tip is to always go for lunch and ask for extra garlic butter. You will thank me later.

Benihana has a great lunch special that you can get for $10 to $15. It includes soup, hibachi vegetables & fried rice. It's always good & easy on the pockets

Although this place is supposed to be an authentic Japanese Hibachi restaurant, it's not. For one thing all the cooks are Hispanic, although they do posses hibachi cooking skills. The people making the sushi at the sushi station were also Hispanic. The waiter was Hispanic...More

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.
