  • Natalie M.If you feel like splurging the scallops are so good! Always get the chicken fried rice instead of steamed and order a sushi roll for an app. I never get full off the regular meal.

  • MisterEastlake2001Benihana (Japanese: 紅花 ) means "Safflower." Founder Hiroaki Aoki named the 1st restaurant, Benihana of Tokyo, for the red Safflower that was the name for the coffee shop owned by his parents in Tokyo.

  • A.E. V.Be prepared to wait. The hostess runs around confused with little clue as to what's going on. Very off day for Benihana...

  • Bev Y.Just a heads up! When you get your free photo @ the end of your birthday dinner- leave the lights OFF! Your photo will probably look better with a Lil color! It's a free photo- but STILL.

  • Gene K.Johnny Nitro (may he rest in peace) would say they are drinking doubles until they are seeing triple. In the case of Benihana it's drinking triples until your your seeing quadruple

  • Jonathan W.Benihana is a culinary establishment people come here from around the world to take a brief respite from whatever conference they're in town for. Anyways great spot - go for lunch it's 1/2 the price.

    55555 by Jonathan W.


  • Ron H.You have o order the Diablo sauce. It's not on the menu. A small size is $2.50 and a large is $5.00. It's the only spicy sauce they have. It's like an orange aioli.
