Hopefully everyone gets a chance to dine at Benihana for a special occasion at one point in their life. The hibachi-style restaurant is always brimming and humming with so many smiling faces, creating a great ambiance, especially for parties. The food is exquisitely simple and cooked right before your eyes in hibachi-manner. The chefs seem pretty worn out at times and you feel bad when they have to do the knife tricks that you know they've done thirty times already today. That aside, the food is great-- I especially enjoy the hibachi-shrimp. Make sure you order any side dishes right-away, sometimes special orders such as extra-rice or such can be lost in such a busy restaurant. Also, make a reservation for sure--- no sense in waiting two hours for a seat as some people are willing to do.
