Diner Reviews
  • "Chef did nothing special. Did not entertain us at all. Didn't get the whole experience of the flames. He also mixed up our orders gave my friend regular steak when it should have been filet mignon. Came here for something different. Was not impressed! My daughter has only been to this type of restaurant once and at 11 she even said it wasn't as good as when she went before. I advise them to train their staff before they make us pay for full service when we got half a-- service. Servers were great! Cook sucked!"

  • "I'm a teacher and this is the 2nd time taking scholars to Benihana as a reward that they won at schoool. It was something that we were all looking forward to and this time did not disappoint! It's such a fun experience to watch a chef cook the delicious food in front of you with a special flair and personality. The scholars and I alike had our phones out taking pictures. We had a. Wonderful time! This is a great treat for anyone of any age, but I have found it's an experience that can't be duplicated or topped!"

  • "The food was great but I wasn't very pleased that the chef had given my some of my food to the other party at the table. Also I had ordered a for two and had stated I was going to be sharing some with my date eventually, but the chef still gave him over half of my food not even bother to ask how much I wanted to give him or if I was sharing now or if I had only wanted to share the chicken or the steak or anything whatsoever. But besides that the food was amazing."

  • "I think our chef was a little inexperienced. I was disappointed with his performance as compared to chefs at other stations. I was also disappointed in my HAIKU COLADA. I think they forgot to add rum/alcohol to the drink. For the price, I expected to be able to TASTE alcohol had been added. It was my husbands birthday celebration and I was truly disappointed with the experience. I heard about the chefs were very entertaining and this chef was far from it. The food was OK....but nothing stood out to make me want to return again."

  • "I took my daughter here for her 17th birthday and she loved it. We went as a family of 8 and we were comfortable and had fun. The food taste great but the only thing is that the portions seemed a bit small for the price."

  • "My overall experience was good; however, the chef was not very involved and the waitress had to correct the order. Food is a little over priced for quality of food. Need to put additional space in between tables because my husband couldn't even get up to use the bathroom without the other table getting up and interrupting their dinner."

  • "Great place for dinner with a show. Our chef and waitress were charismatic, vibrant and comical. They put on a very enjoyable performance and made the entire evening worth every penny. Congratulations to them and to all of us at the table for a worthwhile experience."

  • "We took a large party for a birthday celebration. We had a reservation but waited at least 45 minutes to be seated. Once seated we waited very long for drinks and even longer for a chef. Chef was unenthusiastic, not like those we had on previous occasions. From start to finish dinner took 3.5 hours. On the bright side, food was good. I have been to this restaurant many times, but I feel it is losing its appeal and I would not recommend it to others."

  • "We came here for my sister's Sweet 16. We have been to numerous Benihana's in different states and we're very excited knowing this would be great...it wasn't. The chef sure tried but he must have been knew because he seemed insecure and did little to know "tricks." We sat with the worst two customers which was no fault to Benihana except how they handled them. As he was cooking, they decided they wanted shrimp too. He gave them my sister's, the birthday girl's, and she was stuck waiting an extra 15 minutes for more shrimp to be brought out. We received only zucchini and onions which was not the vegetables we were used to at other locations and everything came out 10-15 minutes apart from each other leaving our food cold. We won't be back."

  • "Normally, dinner at Benihana is rated excellent on all levels, but this outing was not as good. Our wait, even with reservations was over thirty minutes and with three children this is not fun. Our service was very slow and we had to ask twice for almost everything. Our service person was so friendly.......perhaps it was her first night working. Dinner was not as good as normal. Our steak was not tender at all. It felt like an "off" night for us, but we will continue to dine at Benihana as I am sure the next time will be better. This is a great restaurant for family gatherings and especially for birthdays."

  • "I went about a year ago and was not impressed but this time around they did a good job. The experience was good with an entertaining chef and good food. The staff was very friendly. I am sure I will return. I would recommend getting one of the entrees that has something extra to it to give that extra flavor like the spicy chicken."

  • "We are long time customers of the Benihana chain and continue to enjoy the outstanding food and attentive service at the Pennsauken NJ location. The food is always great and plentiful, and the each chef provides entertainment for all those at the table. It is aways interestIng to meet other people at the table (each table seats 8 people). Tonight's dinner was very well cooked and presented well. The chef was very entertaining, throwing a few new tricks into the normal routine. Very entertaining and filling. Well worth any wait or the price. We will glady continue to visit Benihana and look forward to our next visit."

  • "The food was average, nothing special. Our chief was not entertaining, other tables had a great show but not ours. He was very quite and really didn't do many tricks. The amount of food you receive for the price is not worth. Won't be returning."

  • "I was excited to visit Benihana because I have heard good things about them. However, this experience was lackluster and I can't help being disappointed. To begin, we finally sat for our reservation at 7:30. They brought our soup and salads within ten minutes, but then no chef came and began cooking until after 8:30. A table that sat after us had their food before our chef came. No one mentioned the wait to us, the waitress just kept saying he would be out soon. When he did come out, the chef was not engaging or enthusiastic. He did not speak to us except to ask about our orders. Usually they are very entertaining. The food was okay. I was offered both fried rice and a scoop of ice cream, both of which I was unknowingly charged extra for."

  • "I dont completely hate this place because the food and drinks we're really good but the service and the hibachi chef was not as attentive and the chef was not very good at his "show". Hibachi is all about the food and the "show" and they didn't deliver; the chef keeps throwing the pepper grinder at us and the shrimp tails we're flying all over the place. So if you dont care about the show, then go because the food is great!"

  • "Food was somewhat bland. The chef could have been a little more enthusiastic. The portion of the food was small compared to price of the meal. We were were definitely still hungry after the fact. The only thing we really enjoyed was the strawberry sangria! Probably wont go back for dinner unless we"

  • "The chef at our table only went through the motions. He was lifeless. Took all the fun out of the experience. The food was just ok. Some of the newer restaurants in our area that are the same type of experience are so much better for food and atmosphere. This restaurant is living off of its original high reputation of the past."

  • "I took a group of buddies with me. On this particular night it was very crowded. My reservations were respected and I was greeted to my seat almost immediately. The service was pretty good however the chef was pretty boring and did not seem to enjoy the job. The service seem slower than usual. However the food was pretty good and I would definitely go back but it is not one of my favorite restaurants."
