We flew to Manhattan and had to return to the most entertaining restuarant where we had eaten 1 year before. The food is ordered and cook in front of you by your assigned chef. Lots of fun watching and delicious food! Love Benihanas and Manhattan❤.

My boyfriend fancied Teppanyaki and so after a trip advisor search we booked a table on Open Table and visited Benihana. We arrived early, but were swiftly shown to our table - sharing the grill with 3 other dining couples. We went for the steak...More
