We’ve gone to this restaurant twice —once for a drop-in visit and ordered from the menu and the other was for a birthday celebration and reservations were made. The birthday celebration was a much better experience than the drop-in visit. The food tasted better because You had your own personal chef. His demeanor made it a fun experience and the food was delicious!

As usual and expected the food was great. We all had a fun time and enjoyed every moral. My favorite is the Land and Sea combination. This is one of the newer designed locations and was not my favorite. This placed seemed to be a lot louder which made it harder to talk to each other. Just my personal choice, I prefer the older design.

We go here every so often. You can dine at the table with others, where the chefs perform their talents, or you can dine by yourself in the other dining area. Lunch deals are a good buy.

Way overpriced for what should be a tasteful meal. The chef tries to be funny but 90% of the jokes fall flat. The food service was mediocre as was the preparation. The cost? Way over priced for what you get. Pick a hole-in-the-wall mom & pop Chinese restaurant and save a ton of money.

This location is ok. The inside is very boring. Other Benih's are nicer inside. They need to kick it up a notch. Otherwise, food and service is excellent !
