A word from Benihana - Beaverton
Welcome to Benihana and a dining experience unlike any other! If you’ve never been to Benihana before, let us tell you what you can expect: Our guests are seated at communal tables in groups of eight to ten, where your personal chef will perform the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Watch as we slice and dice, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well taste buds, whether you choose mouth-watering steak, tender chicken or succulent seafood.

Or you can visit our sushi lounge where a talented sushi chef will prepare the freshest sashimi, maki and signature sushi rolls with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine. Smaller tables and more intimate seating is available in the lounge or bar on a first-come, first-served basis, whether you’re looking to enjoy one of our delicious Benihana Teppanyaki entrées or our amazing selection of sushi!

    Took my girlfriend to dinner for her birthday, it was her 50th when the manager learned of this, she gave her a vase, as it is benihana's 50 anniversary, congratulations and thank you again..

    They are always so careful to meet the dietary needs and allergy accommodations of us when we go in there. They are meticulous when preparing gluten free food, and are careful of my sesame allergy. We go about once a month, and they have never let us down.

    We always love eating here.. the food is great, cooked on the hot plate at your table, sushi is also available.. it is difficult to converse with the staff and fellow diners because of the noise level.. I made my reservation on line this time and it was very easy and convenient. We brought our 2 yo granddaughter and she was entranced with everything from other diners to the cook and the food!

    As long as you don't worry about the salt, garlic butter and oil, the food is delicious and the atmosphere is fun! Great chef (B-Rad) who was funny and talented. So much food I couldn't finish mine. Really noisy if you want to talk across the table but lots of activity and interaction with chef which makes the experience great. Nice selection of fancy cocktails. Had a couple of delicious Exotic Mojitoes. All in all, definitely worth the price.

    The new manager that started recently is running things differently. We had 430 pm RSVP's made with this app and while they seated us at 4:30 pm, we had to wait till they filled the entire table to start. It was after 5pm by that point. The chef was terrible that day too.

    Booked a reservation for the earliest dinner seating at 4 pm, we were the first to arrive for dinner, although we weren't the first party to be shown to our table. We were seated at the first table in the dining room, at the end, right at the foyer, where people waiting for their tables in the foyer, were staring at us. It was uncomfortable. They squeezed a total of 8 people at our table, really giving me no room or space to eat, I was elbow to elbow with a stranger. A table that was across from us, had 5 people seated, 2 at 1 end, then 3 at the other, they had all kinds of space. None of them had a reservation, but they managed to get better seating than we did. A customer was berating the Mgr, right next to us, for a good 10 minutes.

    Had a fantastic dinner with my husband and Mother-in Law (80 years old, first time to a hibachi grill). It was a bit loud for her with the vents above the table, can't really talk much, but the show and food were AMAZING! Spent a ton of money but worth it for a special evening.

    I went to Benihana with some girl friends for my birthday. Despite being seated 30 minutes past our reservation time, we had a wonderful dining experience. The chef was entertaining and the food was incredible. Because it was my birthday, I got a free entree and ice cream sundae that my friends and I shared. It's a nice touch that Benihana takes a picture of your group at the end of the meal for you to take home. I will definitely come back to this restaurant for a special occasion.

    First of all he prepared our food not how we asked for it. Then he put what I had ordered on my other families plate and hers on mine. Then he said oh just switch plates after we had already eaten previous food off that plate. Very unsanitary. Then my chicken was still pink in the middle. Wasn't cooked thru. I told hm about it and he said he had already turned off the burner. Extremely rude!

    First time there, went for our anniversary. I normally don't order seafood, especially at asian places, because it can be very bad if it's not done right. I ordered the Seafood Diablo with Shrimp, Scallops, and Calimari. It was the absolute best seafood I have ever had in my life and some of the best asian food I have had as well. The service was amazing and quick, the chef at your table was very skilled and kept you engaged. This is dinner and a show and even though it's a little spendy, it is worth every penny!

    This was the worst we have had in all my years going to Benihana. We had a birthday coupon and I brought my daughter, her bf and my grandson and I don't think we will be going back, even with the coupon. Our server was very belligerent as she was arguing with me that I needed to buy 2 meals with my one coupon!!! very unprofessional!! She even brought a manager to my table and it was VERY embarrassing! The manager then confirmed that I only had to buy myself one meal with my bday coupon. After that we were not treated very well by the server, she never came by to fill our water or check up on us. The food was mediocre and the chef came to our table after the table behind him and left our table way before the other chef left. VERY SAD

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    First, we had a 6:30 pm reservation and arrived at 6:26 pm. We then had to wait another 20 minutes for a table making me wonder why I bothered with a reservation. The place was PACKED and the restaurant was obviously not set up to handle a full house of customers. When we were finally seated, we had to wait another HOUR (yes, a full hour) for a chef. The chef was okay overall, but he burned some of the food as he rushed trying to finish our table and move to the next one. A bus boy dropped a set of chopsticks for another table on my husband's head and didn't apologize or even acknowledge that it happened - he just picked them up from the floor and put them on the table next to ours. Finally, our server screwed up the check.

    Neveragain
    Dined on 7/29/2014
    I was forced to go because of my wife's birthday. Never again will I pay so much for cold food. They give you pedestrian sauces to cover up the lack of flavor in their preparations. We got a cheesey Mexican chef that couldn't get it right, kept throwing food around, missing the target. By the time the protein was cooked, the rice was cold. I think if you had a couple of drinks, one would not care so much. Maybe that is the plan.

    First time back to Benihana's since I was a very young boy about 40 years ago, I remember it being a really fun place to eat with great food. Now I am just wondering why it took me so long to go back? the food was amazing and the chefs really do a great job of putting on a performance all the while preparing some really great food. The children all had smiles.

    We arrived on time for our reservation, however we had an additional 20 minute wait for a table to clear. When we were finally able to be seated, the manager informed me that due to the delay, order some appetizers and he would take care of them. I wasn't really put off by the wait, but sure appreciated a chance to try some things off of the appetizer menu. The wait between drinks, soup, salad and the meal prep was sufficient. Our Chef Phillipe was fun to watch and very engaging. Overall, the food prep was fun, the meal was delicious and the service was great.

    I have been to this restaurant many times and have enjoyed the food and entertainment. This time I left frustrated and may never go back. We had a family of five and sat with another family of three. Our family paid 18 dollars extra each for fried rice. The other family only paid for one. When it came time to divide the rice the chef gave everyone at the time fried rice even those who did not pay or order it-essentially giving away our paid for portion without asking us. Then he also gave them "the extra" rice again they did not order or pay for it. It was so frustrating I couldn't enjoy the rest of my meal. -which by the way was rubbery. Paid a lot for rubbery filet and frustration.
