Great food.. 11/13/2006

Well the theme of this place is pretty much entertainment. The chefs put up a food show that is a must see. Of course if you're lucky and didn't get the angry one which I did once and was not fun. This place is even better if you go in large groups and special occasions since you will be sharing the table with others. I believe they have 8 seats per table. The only draw is that since the food is being cooked in front of you, you will come out smelling like fried food. But other than that the food and drinks are delightful. For dnner specially on weekends be ready to wait. more

No Show, Lots of Dough 7/12/2003

Do not go in with high expectations. The show consists of smoke coming out of onions to look like a volcano. Most places at least have a flame as well. No knife show, NOT ENTERTAINING. The worst part was the food. The salad and soup were good however, the main course of steak and chicken was of very poor quality. The steak was dry and chewy, and most fast food restaurants have better chicken. Garlic butter is added to the fried rice, which makes it taste horrible. more

amusing, yes:food, no 9/11/2002

It was quite amusing to watch the Hibachi chef make volcanoes out of onions and toss veggie slices into his hat. That's it. Spicy tuna sushi was very good, but the tempura sushi was rubbery. The server was nice to let 4 people share 2 main dishes. As we were small eaters, the servings were perfect. But the teriyaki chicken and steak were tasteless, and so was the vegetable fried rice. Bring perfume, or else, you'll leave smelling like a hibachi stove. If you're going as a group<7 people, be prepared to share the table with strangers. more

beware 8/19/2002

Anticipation was the initial feeling I experienced as I walked into the restaurant. I was excited that my lunch would be cooked and served right before my eyes. The salad and miso soup served at the beginning of the meal was excellent. The actual dish I ordered was quite tasty but nothing out of the ordinary. The service was terrible. What the restaurant needs is to have a waitress that can both speak and understand english thoroughly. She insisted that I ordered dishes I didn't even order. I asked her about several items on the menu simply out of curiosity. She ended up having the chef cook them for me. She assumed that since I pointed at the items as I inquired abou them, I automatically meant that I wanted to order them. She agrivated me and spoiled my lunch. Pros: good salad, good miso soup Cons: bad service more

Editorial

  • In Short
    Benihana started out as a tiny four-table restaurant in New York City's theater district before becoming an international chain. Diners sit around large tables where chefs ostentatiously chop, slice, stir-fry and grill. Entree options are simple--shrimp, chicken, steak and scallops--and preparation is uniform. Every entree comes with a similar stock of sides: rice, onion soup, shrimp appetizer, iceberg lettuce drizzled with dressing, sauteed vegetables and green tea.
