The food is tasty and the variety is interesting. The price is a bit on the high end for this type of restaurant but all in all the combination of food experience/service experience was good

We called the restaurant earlier before we go there but they said there is no reservation required. We came there at around 10pm on a Friday night and the restaurant was jam packed. No available live cooking so we opted to sit upstair.ambience is cozy,quite and romantic.It has aquariums and u can still see the cooks preparing food because they are inside a room with a glass window.food is good.sushi and sashimi are in average price and is of course mouth watering.We ordered chicken teriyaki lunch set which includes soup,salad and rice.serving can be shared with someone. Small jar of saudi cocktail is about 8glasses. But location is bad. Overall,me and my partner was satisfied❤️

To be honest I had never heard of Benihana till I watched, "The wolf of wall street" where Jordan Belfort played by Leonarda Di Caprio has a meltdown.
My friend suggested that we give it a try and without knowing much went along. The restaurant is located quite far off the beaten track. No shopping malls or other large restaurants are nearby so it can be hard to find without knowing exactly where you are going.
This is a Hibachi/Teppanyaki restaurant where you are seated with up to 8 people around a grill where the chef cooks. The main emphasis is meant to be that the chef entertains you while cooking your food. The standard meal includes a starter, salad, main, rice and vegetables. Drinks are extra
I chose Wagyu beef but in all the food was well cooked and enjoyable. If you have not experienced this style of food before I would recommend you give it a try.

Very disaapointed. Drove 30 minutes to get there as i have loved the food since my time in dubai. Very cold welcome. Only 1 table in single section and 5 staff plus manager. 15 minutes and nobody came to take my order or offer a drink. I decided to leave and nobody said a work. Such a shame to see a great name like benihana falling apart

Not my best spot due to price, but food is good. I love their Tapenyaki variety routine where someone prepares it for you right at your table.
