Well we all know Benihana is a chain with normally average food but one that combines average prices with some entertainment. One does not expect great food but a decent one. We ate at very good Benihana locations in the past like in California and also at average or below average like this location. The place needs an upgrade inside... More

We had lunch over on the left side by the sushi bar. The salmon and beef boats were great, the service was good, the staff were friendly and the restaurant was very clean.

Had a lunch boat at Benihana. The soup was missing the usual mushrooms, but the sushi was better than ever. Highly recommend this location for lunch and dinner, but the construction on Miracle Mile in front is a bit of a nuisance.

We have a birthday dinner at this Benihana location at least once every year. We went again Oct 8th. The food was always great but this time even seemed better than before. Our chef, Sebastian, put on a great show and was in full command of all his "tricks"...and, of course, a master of the things he cooked. The waiter... More

After a long duration , I had the chance to visit Benihana again. Nothing has changed and it still serves one of the best Hibachi Grills. This time our chef was an apprentice. although he fumbled up a bit at the start with the cooking but he managed it up with some good food served our way. We tried the... More

The drinks were delicious too! You can then walk around Miracle Mile after dinner. We were there on July 4th so we got... More

everything was fine just that our cook had a bad attitude. It seems he did not understand English at all. Other than that the food was great

I have been going to Benihanas for 30 years. This Benihana continues to deliver deliver on what I would call a decent, average hibachi experience. The staff did a nice job. Having been to Benihanas over the years, I do think they are using too much of their "garlic butter" in the food - that along with added salt. The... More

Welcome to a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well as your taste buds.

Or visit our sushi bar, where your sushi chef will prepare the freshest sashimi, maki and temaki sushi, all with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine.
