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!

  • Delicious, but too loud!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/24/2014
    We celebrated two birthdays on this visit to Benihana, and it was our first visit in several years. The food was delicious; the veggies were perfect, my filet mignon was exceptional, the scallops were just the slightest bit overcooked, but still yummy. The chef was entertaining, although he tried to be funny by acting like he was handing a dish to each diner and then pulling it back. It was funny once or twice, but he did it half a dozen times to one of the ladies at our table and it just became rude. After he treated a couple of us like that, the rest of us just waited for him to set the dish down instead of reaching out to accept it. It's way, way too loud for conversation. We couldn't hear much of what our server said, we had to ask her to repeat herself several times throughout the evening. She did do a great job of keeping our drinks filled and taking care of us. She gets 5 stars! There was a family at another table who let their toddler run loose around the dining room. Not really something the restaurant staff has much control over, but it was distracting, and I like children. I was very worried that he would hurt himself, he was tall enough to reach up and put his hand on the hot grills. The host/hostess staff were snobby and unfriendly. I recommend the food, but not the atmosphere.

    Had a good time. They didn't have many options for vegetarians, although they were accepting and seemed to have enough experience to know what had animal stock hiding in it. Very attentive service. I do wish it had been quieter, more private, and that I wasn't often expected to participate in the act - I just wanted good food and a show. But if you know what you're getting in for, it's good. Don't come super hungry - it takes a while for the food to cook. But the staff was very nice!

    My group of 8 decided we'd try Benihana for the first time. We were celebrating a birthday and decided we'd try something new. Well, we are glad we did! Our chef Selvin was so entertaining, and the food was delicious! Although I expected better, I ordered the teriyaki chicken and got a breast of chicken chopped up with a small bowl of steamed rice. Overall, it was a great experience!

    We've come here several times but have never been treated so poorly by our server. She rushed us from the beginning, she got 2 separate drink orders wrong after we had to ask our amazing chef to not let her leave without getting us more drinks because she seemed to be very attentive to the other group at the table but would not offer us additional drinks while she would to them. She also took two orders down incorrectly and then scoffed at the chef when he asked her for the correct order preps. Immediately after the chef stopped cooking she came and bagged up our food even though we were still eating. It was so rude she didn't even ask before grabbing plates. It was some of the worst service I have gotten at any restaurant EVER.

    Not our best experience this time. There was an infant crying at the table next to us the whole time, we were squished into the rose room , and our chef seemed bored rather than entertaining. The food was still very good and I will definitely be back to give it another chance to redeem itself.

    My husband & I took my mom to Benihana for her birthday after work. Husband had a horrible day and mom was tired. All was forgotten.husband and I had drinks at thebar -we were an hour early. Bartenders was amazingly fun & friendly. I had the Benihana Punch (inhaled more like it..tasted like fruit juice) & husband had "best spiced run and cherry coke he ever had" with a California roll he's been wanted since his birthday. Mom arrived. had enough time to welcome her. Sat with a great group of people. Our waitress was amazing very friendly & welcoming Even got grumpy husband laughing. Chef was flawless & very entertaining. Food was perfect. Just wished the fried rice & shrimp never ended. Can't wait for the next family birthday!

    I've been coming here since who knows when and I've never had a bad experience. Although it's crowded, they always do well to seat people as soon as possible. I had a large group and they were able to accommodate my request for tables together. The servers seemed a bit busy and slow but I understand. It's a great place for dinner because they make sure the birthday person had a very special experience. It helps to get $30 off for dinner too. The food is always on point and it seems like the fried rice gets better every visit. Thanks for the experience. I will be back again just because :)

The employees are always extremely friendly & the service great. If something is not quite right, it is taken care of immediately.

    This was my first visit to any Benihana and I didn't know what to expect. People are seated in groups of 8 (strangers, parties, and all) around a hot, flat grill and the chef entertains you with cooking related skills as the food is prepared. A metal spatula, a giant fork, and flying food are in the spotlight for about 30 minutes. It was fun, but not the right atmosphere for a romantic dinner. The food was great and the people were very nice and friendly. I would recommend this place if you are looking for fun in a semi-social setting.

    Chaotic crowded noisy. Food was excellent, however, I walked out with a headache after not understanding half of what my party said and very little of what the waitress had to say. I have been in a few Benihana restaurants in other cities and have never been exposed to noise and chaos as this particular establishment. I may frequent another Benihana again in the future but not the one in Beaverton OR.

    I like the atmosphere, but the noise is way to loud for me. I have been there before and it all came back to me why I don't like to go there. Plus the price is very expensive. In order to carry on a conversation you have to talk really loud or use sign language. I forgot to ware my hearing aids and I'm glad I didn't have it on.
