A word from Benihana - Beaverton
Prepare for a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Listen as razor-sharp blades slice through tender steak and juicy chicken. Take in the aroma of sizzling shrimp, lobster and savory vegetables.

Or visit our sushi bar, where your sushi chef will prepare fresh nigiri, sashimi and specialty rolls, all with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine.

  • "Because I came on my lunch break, my friends and I decided to eat outside. It was a beautiful day. We waited a while for a waiter to come greet us and upon waiting we even asked another tables waiter if he could assist us. The food was great! When it was time for me and another coworker to leave because we had to be back to work the waiter screws up the check which caused us to have to wait another 5-8 mins for her to fix it. We ended up being late back to work. Because you guys are in an awesome location and the food is great, the lunch prices even better you probably get a lot of people that come during the lunch hour. Just be mindful of that during that time. I will visit again! Just probably not on a lunch break."

  • "We visited for a birthday and had a wonderful job. Our chef was very energetic and kept my children entertained. He was engaging and was very skilled in his craft. The food was cooked perfectly and seasoned well. Our hostess was wonderful as well. She returned often to check on us and was always very welcoming."

  • "I brought my wife in for a birthday dinner. I have been to Benihana's before and love the food and experience. We were seated with two other couples (one with children). I felt squeezed in between them and really felt cramped. The next person we contacted was an older Asian female who had a strong accent. She was the reason I don't wanna come back. We tried to order our food and drinks and struggled with the noise and attitude of our waitress. Very disappointing. Our cook was soo cool and made the other issues disappear but regardless, I was very disappointed. Jason"

  • "The food was good and our table chef was an energetic showman. Having said that, I won't likely eat there again. I was with two buddies to celebrate my birthday. We wanted to have drinks and tell stories, but were seated with a family of five. Because the chef cooks for the whole table, the waitress pressured us to make our order. The restaurant is noisy and the chef puts on a show. These factors combined to make conversation impossible. Finally, the food was overpriced by about a third. The experience seemed best for a family but the price was more appropriate to finer dining."

  • "We had a family birthday dinner and the food was wonderful the service was good but a little slow and inattentive due to the restaurant being at capacity. My Dad uses a walker aid and he had trouble navigating through the tight space allowed to get to back dining room. Over-all it was a nice evening."

  • "Our family went to Benihana for my son's16th birthday celebration. We do this every year as a birthday tradition. Why we always return: the food, the server, the manager - who came by twice to check on our experience, and we always love our chef who is a comedian and chef rolled into one!!! From what I could see, all the other parties were loving their chef as well! At the conclusion of our meal they sang Happy Birthday to our son and brought him a birthday dessert. Always a great time when we go to Benihana. We will continue to go back each year! Do expect to pay for the experience. Remember to make a reservation."

  • "We arrived 1 hour early for our reservation, without the birthday coupon. They got us to a table within 5 minutes. A hostess looked up our coupon via our email on her phone. We arrived with a baby that I didn't know was coming so I didn't book it with a baby. They got me a sling for the baby. We had a pacifier fly behind the chef (our only one with us) and another support person quickly got it for us. The food was fantastic and the chef was a great deal of fun. The only thing that keeps us away is the price. I love this restaurant, but we can only come a few times a year."

  • "Our group went to Benihana to celebrate an 18th birthday with a surprise party. The birthday girl had never been to a Japanese restaurant before, but she said that it was a great introduction. Our cook, Felipe, was engaging and funny. We especially enjoyed when he made a hungry chicken while making fried rice. I had the spicy tofu steak, which had a nice kick without being overwhelming. I was surprised at how much food came with my order, including miso soup, a salad, steamed rice, and vegetables in addition to the main dish, but how they were spaced out made it seem like not too much. Overall, it was great dinner."

  • "Our family of five (with 3 kids 11 and under) went to Benihana for a birthday dinner and had a fantastic time. Roger, our chef, was entertaining and service was prompt. The food was amazing - flavorful and delicious! The restaurant is great for kids too; ours loved the food, even tried some new things, and had a blast watching the chef prepare everything. Highly recommended!"

  • "I brought a friend from out of state here for his birthday, and he absolutely loved it! The charismatic and energetic staff made us feel at home and excited for our dining experience. We were not disappointed! Our server was attentive and made sure we had everything we needed throughout the meal. The chef who prepared our main entree out on just enough of a show, and each item that came off of the grill was perfect! My friend will probably ask to go back every time he visits, and I know I will return! Thanks for a great night, Benihana!"

  • "I enjoyed the show put on by the chef. The food was outstanding. The price was reasonable for a nice restaurant. The service was great. It was noisy and sometimes we couldn't hear the chef unless we listened very closely. You sit at a hibachi table that seats 8. They fill it up, so you will wind up sitting with other guests, which can be fun, but it's not particularly romatic. They do birthday celebrations where the restaurant staff gathers around a table and bangs tambourine and claps and sings. They did it 3 or 4 times while we were there, including at our table. It adds a lot of noise to a place that is already very noisy. Overall I think it's a good place. My girlfriend liked it too, and we plan to return."

  • "Our 3rd annual visit to Benihana to celebrate a birthday. Food is excellent (steak&seafood). Customer service is excellent. Our waitress was efficient, attentive & had a genuine warmth. Noise level very high. Couldn't hear some of what chef was saying. Conversation limited to the person on either side of you unless you shout."

  • "Our daughter loves Benihana and has celebrated her birthday there many times. Now that she is a member of their "birthday club" we usually go during her birth month. This year, we went on her actual DOB. Made our reservation, were seated pretty much as soon as we arrived and had a terrific dinner with another family at the table and an amusing chef. I usually leave with three complaints: I smell like oil, we had to wait forever to be seated even with a reservation and it is so loud!!! But this time, I can only say that it was loud and even at that, we did OK. Maybe because we were there at 6? It was grand."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Reservation at 8:00, not seated until 8:45, placed order at 9:15. Location doesn't have the most efficient seating policy, and wait times were underestimated. Management made no effort to explain the delays. Considering it was a birthday dinner for an 11 year old, the service was too slow and not a great experience for the kid. Food was good, though."

  • "We had a great night celebrating a family birthday. The chef at our table was very funny and interactive. We sat at the table where they are test driving a new ventilation system. The fan works great, but it is an extra challenge for the cooks to get into a different routine. Our chef and waiter didn't skip a beat!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "I've loved this place for years because the food is great but when you have a reservation for 6pm and you don't even get seated until 6:45--that's just unacceptable! After we got seated at 6:45 we didn't take the first bite until 7:15 which is 75 minutes after our reservation time! Ridiculous! Honestly, it's probably my last time there..."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "We love Benihana's - the food is always good (some chef's are better than others) and you know what to expect; entertainment at the grill! If you're looking for a 'quiet, relaxing, romantic' dinner, this is NOT the place for you."

  • "My 16 year old granddaughter wanted to visit this restaurant for her birthday. Couldn't get reservations for Saturday so went Sunday at 1:30. We were seated at our reservation time. There were 3 of us and 2 other couples one with 8 year old at our table. It took a very long time to order long wait for salad (which was awful) and sushi. The sushi was excellent and nicely presented. Our "chef" was not very performance oriented as were chefs at other tables although friendly enough and a competent cook. We had mostly seafood and steak which was just ordinary. I would recommend for special occasions but you can get much better food elsewhere faster for a lot less. Dinner for 3 was $110 before tip with no leftovers. Very noisy too."

  • "Dining here is always fun. Be prepared to spend about 1.5 to 2 hours at dinner. The wait staff is very friendly and attentive. Having a chef prepare your dinner in front of you is always fun. The food is always fresh and great quality. Multiple selections for meat eaters, slightly less vegetarian friendly than I would prefer, but when we go it is usually for the meat. The only drawback is the noise level and the multiple birthday celebrations. Make it fun for your group by clapping along and just go with it. Also, make reservations!!"
