Benihana - Beaverton
Annual family dinnerWhen our family visits for father's day, we all enjoy dining at Benihana. The children especially like the entertainment...the "chef". Allen was outstanding and made our experience extra special.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMEntertained while diningOur chef was full of energy, had a great sense of humor and kept us and the kids engaged throughout the meal, which is no easy task with a grade schooler and 2 teenagers to please! Our waitress also looked after us well, making special chopsticks for our youngest to use. His showmanship with food prep was great too. We went for lunch and the portions were still huge. Suggestion: go on an empty stomach. Having a birthday there was fun as they gave a special song, birthday sundae, and also took our family picture which they developed and handed to us super fast with a link to a web address if we wanted to do more with the digital file -- very organized and fun.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat family experienceWe have a family with a wide range of ages and everyone loves Benihana. The kids love the entertainment and the food is delicious enough to please the adults. In our family, for special occasions, Benihana is unbeatable. Thanks for providing an outstanding experience that my kids want to go back to so we can avoid the burger chains.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat birthdayWe took our 6 year old here for his birthday and he had a BLAST! It was his first time and he wants to go back every year, if not more! The only notable thing was that we were never offered a second round of drinks. We finished our first beer half way through the table entertainment and were never offered another one. This is service 101. Coming from someone who worked in the service industry for 10+ years, it was disappointing. Not only were we thirsty, but this is an easy way for the server to increase the bill and her tip! And one more thing, we ordered a bottle of sake for the table to share with our first and only drink order and it came out 10 minutes later totally room temperature. It was supposed to be ice cold! Bummer.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNoisy, but LOVE the foodThe food is amazing. Having it grilled right in front of you is such a benefit. They space out the courses really nicely too. The noise can give you a headache if you dont already have one. They have a great birthday special ($30 off an entree) if you are signed up for their Chef's table club. Also, they always have a monthly special that makes it reasonably priced for a group of 2.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA favoriteWe frequent this restaurant. The worst part about it is you have to plan to go there because just dropping by even mid-week is no longer an option. This is primarily due to birthday vouchers can only be used during the week. Weekends are still all booked up though so a good business decision. If you don't plan ahead you either eat super early or super late.
Food is consistently good.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeRecent remodel - Beautiful!
Bartenders there are the bomb!!!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMYumi-Haha!!Wow!! First time there... We were greeted quickly, seated, introduced to our server and their processes for food, dining, etc... The food was great, the "show" we experience from Chef Adrian was a ball, and we were constantly amazed at the ongoing experience and environment. My kids want to go back (and so do my husband and I)!!!!
We had the Admirals Feast and chicken fried rice; the girls ate off the kids menu (perfect cost, portion, and options)!!!!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBest restaurant for asian cuisineFirst of all the fine dining servers are wonderful. Tomoko Williams outshines everyone. She's the type of person you always want around. Then the food is so awesome. All the chefs are very good.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe hadn't been to BenihanaWe hadn't been to Benihana for a number of years and wanted to check it out because we think our grandchildren would enjoy it. And they will! Our chef guy was wonderful and put on a terrific show as well as perfectly cooking our seafood medley. We had a great time with great food. We'll be back with grandchildren in tow.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMTunaTuna. Was a little disappointing. My husband ordered and thought it would be more like a seared tuna. The accomplishments were great,but the tuna itself, blah. The rest of the meal was great.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday bashI was thrilled that for the first time, after 37 years of going to benihana, there was a Female chef. As usual the food was amazing. Sign up for their mailing list and get $30 for use for your Birthday Month. My twin and I both got one. The evening was great5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBenihanaGreat experience the first time... will be the same the second. Great food. Takes a long time to be done eating... 2 hrs5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Daughters BirthdayThe service at the table was fantastic and so was the food. The only gripe I have is that we had a 5p reservation and didn't get seated until almost 5:30p. The front end staff seemed overwhelmed, confused and disorganized.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat for entertainmentPrices high for food received but overall fun experience5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMSurprise birthday dinnerWe had a wonderful experience. The customer service was outstanding. We had three children dining with us and our chef and server created unforgettable memories for them. We would recommend this restaurant to all of our friends and family.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoyed our chef!We really enjoyed our chef! Our waitress, when we could understand her (she had a very strong accent) was very friendly and funny. The only downfall was that they were running 30 minutes behind even though we had a reservation. That disappointing especially when you have to get a babysitter.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMCustomer ServiceThe service was great - the server was friendly, courteous and was right there when we needed something. The chef was entertaining and the meal was great.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA TraditionAlways hit up Benihana when my father is around - I'm pretty sure he is obsessed! Love the chicken fried rice. Worth the extra fee.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food exp.If Sushi rolls are all you know about Japanese food, go to Benihana for something more...
It's great exp. for kids watching show on a hot iron plate.
Soup, salad, chicken fried rice are great.
My husband ordered teriyaki steak, and I ordered dish that comes with rabster and filet minoung(?).
They were very yummy.
Recommend to sign up at benihana's website, cuz they send you $30 gift certificate for your birthday.
One thing I wasn't happy about was the door. The Thick wooden door in Enterence made huge noise everytime people come in and go out. Seriously, they need to fix it.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBenihana's IS AWESOMEI recently had to the chance to take my two adult nieces to Benihana Beaverton for Mother's Day and their birthdays. Neither woman had ever been there. The younger neice (33) was so excited and impressed with the show she actually video taped our chef making our lunch. It was sooooooo much fun! I LOVE taking "first timers" to Benihana. The food is fantastic, the show is wonderful, and it is such a wonderful value for the quality of the food and entertainment! When I was a little girl many years ago my Grandmother and Grandfather took me and my siblings there.....it has been a family favorite since they were located in downtown Portland. Beaverton is a bit of a drive for us......but well worth it every single time!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMbest mother's day everEverything was top notch. My grown children had the best time also. It's expensive but worth it. A little too cold in restaurant.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat time!We had a great meal! We have been to Benihana's many times, but this was an exceptional meal.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthdaysGreat to go for birthdays and for special occasions.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBenihana's is always a familyBenihana's is always a family favorite. Love watching the cooking show, and they entertain the children also. Can't go wrong with the Rocky Special. You won't leave hungry!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDo not fear the chain.Always a good time. Clearly you have to be ready for some noise and a bit of cheesy fun humor. Food is great. More fun if you get a group so you don't have to share a table (but I am a bit of a curmudgeon).5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMthank you for making my daughter'sthank you for making my daughter's 18th birthday an unforgettable experience.
