A word from Benihana - Coral Springs
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!

    We always love going to Benihana. We went this time for my birthday, so my meal (up to $30) was free. I went with my boyfriend and parents to celebrate. We all loved our chef who put on a great show and had a great personality/sense of humor. Our server was efficient, diligent, and attentive. The food was great and we had a nice time. I look forward to celebrating future birthdays at Benihana.

    My family and I come here for a fun night out together. My 8 year old daughter really loves it-- the kids menu makes her feel like she's ordering with the adults, which I know she loves. And her portion is perfect, for her! The only issue I have with Benihana is the upgrade charges. Ok, so I understand (kind of) the extra charge for fried rice, but I don't eat white rice-- I needed brown rice rice-- but with NO chicken. So, I got charged an extra $1.50 on top of the $3+ to order my brown rice. I don't like being nickled and dimed like that. But oh well, other than that it was a great time as always!

    Dinner was pretty good. The chef was not as entertaining as I have had before, but he was fine. The food was very good and enjoyed the salad and appetizer that comes with meal. I really did appreciate the photo that was taken of me and my husband. It was my birthday and I enjoyed the complimentary ice cream. We were lucky that we were seated by a couple that were about our age group. So we had nice conversations.

    Guess they were short on chefs and even though he was nice the food was not prepared very well. Seems like Benihana has lost what used to make going there a special treat. Its just like a fast food restaurant every time we go. Same old tired chef shows.

    We had 2 cousins visiting from Lima Peru and took them for a fine dinner. I had a Kirin Light, and the 3 ladies had 3 Mango Coladas. All were great. Service was exceptionally good and timely. The chef put on his show and entertained us all. My Filet mignon was cooked perfectly and was delicious and the ladies all had the sirloin and chicken combo, which they all finished. The meal ended with ice cream and a photo of the group. Nice touch.

    We made a reservation at 1p.m. Our cook did not come to the table until 1:50 and then had to leave and get additional items that were missing from his cart. We were on our lunch hour, which turned into a 2 hour lunch. Unfortunately, because the food was awesome but this is not a place we can go back to because it just takes far too long.

    This trip was a Thursday night dinner. The food was delicious and our chef was very nice. The server was not very interested in being there. The whole time he either went missing or when he spoke with u he'd be paying attention elsewhere. Basically took the order and ran.

    Hate2wait
    Dined on 9/7/2014
    Didn't like the order in which the meal was served. I practically finished my staple(chicken fried rice) while delaying, before I got the hibachi shrimp. I finished all the above before I was served with the hibachi vege. I understand this was due to the variety of orders on a shared table. The meal was great, but I would enjoy more if the delay time was lessen and I could have my entire meal on my plate in a reasonable time.

    This was a 50th birthday Celebration. The time we waited for our chief was ridiculous. And the Chief Kai wasn't enthusiastic. He was very boring. was also very slow with preparing the food. I wanted to go at another table. Very Very displeased. Unless I see improvement. I will be visiting the other restaurant on Commercial Blvd.

    Typically Benihana is fantastic- but this time they only had 5 chefs for a Sunday night- the service was awful- poor planning on behalf of the restaurant. I go to Benihana all the time and was very disappointed. The chef ignored our requests wouldn't acknowledge anythjng we said. Kids were restless waiting.

    I took my boyfriend out for his birthday to Benihana since he has never been and he LOVED it! He enjoyed the hibachi table that we sat at. It was great watching the other cooks while waiting for ours. Very friendly staff. It was worth it alone seeing my boyfriend get embarrassed with the birthday singing. Fantastic! Thank you guys for making it a memorable experience.

    Benihana is a good place to go for Hibachi food (also for sushi, which I don't eat, but which is available nevertheless!) The ambiance is warm and welcoming, the hostess and servers are friendly and helpful, and the food is tasty. The menu is quite large and so you have much of a choice when deciding on your lunch/dinner. Drinks are also plentiful and delicious! The hibachi stations and the chefs are fun to watch and interact with and provide children with their entertaining professionalism. The lounge area is more quiet but an easy place to dine/drink as well.

    Our waiter was doing his best, but he was overwhelmed with work, they def needed more support staff. I actually was bussing our table myself, I collected our used glasses, etc and put them on an abandoned tray behind us (which was kind of gross) Our Chef was a nice guy, he did the show and engaged the children and adults, but the food was woefully under seasoned. It took 45 minutes from when we sat down before the first morsel of food was available. That's too long considering we have the food cooked at our table. The bathrooms were clean (yay!!) but the table was sticky...ewww. I wont go back to this location, but I have eaten at several other Benihana's (in NY & FL) and they were better

    We went on a Wednesday night, they didn't look busy but has three parties going and only three chefs. We were seated at 605. Drinks, soup salad came and done by 630. But the chef didn't come to the table until 7pm a full 55 minutes after seating. The waitress apologized as did the manager but the wait was just crazy. A little harder for us since we had to entertain our 2 1/2 year old as well, even with his DVD player and toys. Food was good, the chef was great very playful with our son. I would recommend but be in for a wait

    I am not sure but it seems that something has changed at Benihana's except for the price. There did not seem to be much excitement in the house as their use to be. The dinner show was very lacking in customer involvement and artistry on the part of the chef.

    Service was good, food was good showmanship of chef was horrible, We had family in from Chile and told them how great the show was. There was not a show. NO egg spinning, no shrimp in the hat and pocket. A lame attempt at an onion train. Then to top it off Manager gave us 15 off for the lack of showmanship. Would no go back or recommend this one to anyone.
