A word from Benihana - Cherry Hill
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!

    Benihana is my go to place when I am in the mood for hibachi, and just good food period. The food is delicious and they are very accommodating to people with food allergies (they will cook you food in the kitchen), and they are very attentive. Always a great experience when I go.

    Service was great..benihana mohito was great. My white rice was hard and not steamed enough. However ordered a side of chicken fried rice and that was great. The chef was not good in terms of entertainment and the chicken was a little dry. Everything else was great.

    My boyfriend and I came here to celebrate our anniversary and we loved it. The service was great, the chef was great and so was the food. The food kept coming back to back. I love that they sang to us for our anniversary and took a picture of us that we were able to take home. I can't wait to go again.

  • What's up with the fried rice?
    MrsSpitz
    Dined on 10/7/2014
    I go here maybe 3 times a year and the one thing I do not understand is why they charge you extra for fried rice? It makes sense if you want meat in it, but you can't even get just plain fried rice without them tacking on $4.00. Meanwhile every other place in the area similar doesn't charge. It's not enough to keep me from returning but it's just a little much

    They were out of several items on the menu. We ordered at the bar and then were seated at the table. The bar server said he would make sure he'd send our food when done but he never did, and we asked about it from our table server he had never put it in yet we had already paid. Once that was cleared up (after having to get a supervisor) the items came out wrong and had to be sent back. After the 2nd try it wasn't what we wanted but at that point we decided to keep it.

    I usually enjoy this restaurant. This time the food was bland, service irregular and took almost 2 hours from being seated to leaving. One thing you cannot control are the nuts you have to sit with. Management should have. Asked them to leave, but instead catered to their wishes and ruined the experience for my family and me. Sorry. May not be back.

    This was my first time to Benihana restaurant, upon going I heard nothing but great things that was my initial reason for going. Arriving at Benihahas I was disappointed because I had a different vision of how it should look. Once entering it wasn't any better as I thought it was a intimate atmosphere and dimer lights. The drinks took forever to come and the menu wasn't broad to my liking. The man who came to cook our food did not do any tricks nor was he interactive with us. We where told that a picture was suppose to be taking but when asked we where told "NO!" without any explanation. I was very disappointed overall because I drove an hour to get there just be disappointed with the whole experience.

    My son wanted to go to Benihana for his 21st birthday. We had reservations for a party of eight. We were seated promptly. The person preparing our meal did not even spark a conversation with us. I asked him how he was doing this evening and he said, sorry he was deep in thought about his upcoming vacation to Mexico. I felt he was just going through the motions to get thru the meal. As for dinner I did not like the fact that some of our party were almost done with their dinner before others had not even started. The meals themselves were flat in the taste department. The chicken fried rice was the best part of the meal. $350.00 later. Save your money.

    My first time here and my second for hibachi and me and my girlfriend brought out kids which was a first for them. After reading the other reviews we were excited for some family fun (especially since the bill was 125 bucks) Nope.... He did the volcano and had no personality. I was so disappointed and felt cheated. It's ashame because the food was really good. Oh well, I'm not going there again and I causion anyone looking for some entertainment. Don't go here.

    It is great that Benihana has opportunity for people of all ethnic backgrounds and they do not discriminate. It would be really nice though to see and hear Japanese employees as well. The atmosphere is of the Japanese culture and would be nice to be able to communicate with an actual Japanese person. It's a nice time out for a special occasion because a bit pricey and was not happy with paying full price for sushi during happy hour because we were sitting at table instead of sushi bar. I have eaten at other Japanese style restaurants n this was not the case.
