A word from Benihana - Dallas
Prepare for a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Listen as razor-sharp blades slice through tender steak and juicy chicken. Take in the aroma of sizzling shrimp, lobster and savory vegetables.

Or visit our sushi bar, where your sushi chef will prepare fresh nigiri, sashimi and specialty rolls, all with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine.

Diner Reviews
  • "We celebrated our 45th anniversary at Benihana Dallas and the staff went out of their way to make it a wonderful celebration. They sang to us and even took a picture of us to mark the special occasion. The food was fantastic and the chef was so entertaining. We had not been in several years, but we will definitely be going back soon and recommending it to others."

  • "The food was very good, service was excellent. The chef was too shy, he didn't say much or interact with the table as much as he should have, and soft spoken. It was hard to hear or understand him with the noise level in our section. There were way too many kids for my taste. There were two at our table and I saw at least one per table. I'd don't like sitting next to someone else's kid. I believe some rooms should be reserved for adults only, or come as a group of 8 so you can take over an entire table."

  • "Not a good experience almost embarrassing. Had reservation for 18 and was seated in room with two tables facing each other. One table had fast service but my table was 20 to 30 min behind on everything. One table was eating their entrees when we received our salads. We were celebrating my daughters birthday and was expecting a wonderful experience. We did have one assisting waiter that was trying his best to help and I did appreciate that. Talked to manager but didn't seem to concerned."

  • "I have eaten at B's since a young kid in the 80's. Over the years the quality has drastically gone down, while the prices have continually gone up. However, this dining experience, the food was probably the best it has been in many years. We all added lobster to our Filets and the quality of the Filet was as it use to be, very thick cuts and tender. However, along with the ambience, the diners were a bit too ethnic for our liking. We felt as if we were the minority. Over the years, this has become more of an issue everywhere but consistently worse at Benihanas. The Service was lacking waiting on refills of our drinks the entire night. The Chef, was very entertaining and accommodating of our special requests. The quality & taste was Superb."

  • "I specifically asked for a reservation at 7:45pm with our own room & we got there early (about 10 minutes) and they skipped out party for TWENTY MINUTES only to come ask us if we wanted to wait 20 more because they forgot to save us a room. After we sat down, we waited over 15 minutes for our waiter to come to us. It was terrible service. I won't go back to that location."

  • "The service was great ! i wouldn't suggest Dinner unless its a special occasion , birthdays , etc... Lunch prices and specials are reasonable . Their menu was OUTSTANDING great choices of meats and veggies. Very family friendly. Although they did acknowledge our Birthdays and we did not get the proper greeting. Other than that i enjoyed my visit."

  • "Food was good but the chef couldn't do even the simplest, basic entertaining tricks. He had to look at the order ticket about 100 times to make sure everything was right. More training! Still a fun place, but it's slipped a lot from recent years."

  • "You can count on Benihana's for always having great food and entertaining you while they cook for you!"

  • "We celebrated my 75th birthday on Monday at your N. Dallas location...it was an excellent choice. The mixture of good food, wonderful atmosphere and excellent service made it an event to remember."

  • "We like Benihana but it is a hit or miss every time we go. Sometimes it is great and other times it is bad. This time was so so. They didn't perform all of the things like the heart shaped rice. The guy flipped a piece of hot corn on my 10 yr old's arm. He was apologetic at least. Our waiter didn't come by very often and I drink a lot of iced tea. The other couple that was seated at our table were very pleasant so we had a great time. I just wish when we went go it could be consistent."

  • "We had a great time! My boyfriend enjoyed his first experience at Benihana. Even though I've been to the Irving location, I had a brand new experience at the Dallas location. It was an amazing treat!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Benihana is great for a special occasion, but it isn't what it used to be. People used to dress up and it used to be an event. Now it's more like an Olive Garden with a show. Most everyone was in shorts and T-shirts and the chefs were passably talented. However, the food is always good and if you have a good table, the conversation can be fun."

  • "Went there for a birthday dinner. 6 guests. Over 300 dollars. Doesn't feel Japanese anymore. Okay food. Nothing great. Kids wouldn't eat theirs at all. Boring show. Won't go there again."

  • "Pablo did a great job. He was efficient and kept up with all of our requests! Cung was a great cook! One negative thing was women's bathroom sinks are always grimy everytime I go there. 😣"

  • "I've been to plenty of different hibachi restaurants across the country. This particular one has pleasant décor, attentive service and as delicious food. While not the best hibachi restaurant I've been too, it was a pleasant experience and reasonably priced. I would visit again if ever in the Dallas area. I had the sushi, which was pretty good. My date had the Benihana Special, which was delicious."

  • "We brought our Japanese exchange student to eat there. It was our last meal together. We really enjoyed it very much the food was great and the chef was great also. Over all our experience was great. Thought it was going to be difficult to get a table due to it being a very busy Saturday night between graduations."

  • "Never disappointed at this location. Great food and service."
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "After waiting over 45 minutes to be seated (with a reservation) the host went on to tell us we would be seated next when availability became open. Final straw was when someone walking in claiming to have a 8 o'clock reservation was seated right away and we were still waiting to be seating with our 7:15 reservation. Did not even want to stay for a meal anymore so my family and I gathered our things and left. The children working the front deal had no idea what they were doing and treated us like garbage. They were even seating people without reservations before us which is completely unfair considering we had a reservation. Such a shame because I will never return to such a horrible place. "

  • "Made a reservation for daughter's graduation. Called two days ahead to confirm reservation and asked for a private room. I was told it "should" be available. The day of the reservation I received a phone call asking if we were still coming. I again asked if we could have a private room. Again I was told, "It should be available". I'm wondering why did I make a reservation? Isn't the point of a reservation to secure a table? "

  • "Wife and I went for her birthday. Hadn't been there in years. It was still good, though not great. Little has changed except prices and faces. My steak and scallops were cooked nicely. The wife had chicken, shrimp and steak. I could have handled a little more seasoning and the wife commented the same. If she says that you know it's a little underseasoned. Service was good in the beginning, but towards the ice cream it seemed more important to get the hibachi turned over than to get us a little more tea or water. Will we go back again - sure. It might be several years again though when we have some other special occasion. These days and times its hard for us to pay for the show when we can get a good steak with fixings for half the price. "

  • "Always fun for a special occasion and we enjoyed our meal. Service friendly but we went through several chefs before we were given one who really understood how to prepare gluten free meals. At least wait person was concerned enough to follow through with this for us."

  • "Great food all around. I have been to a Benihana in every major town I go to, but I always come back to this one. The service here is really outstanding time and time again. Food: Always order the Chicken Fried Rice...always "

  • "Our birthday girl, who is also a vegetarian, had a wonderful experience. It is sometimes hard to find a restaurant with anything to offer a vegetarian other than a salad! Our server was amazing and the food was wonderful. There is also a nice selection of fancy drinks. "

  • "This was my first time visiting Benihana, but I chose this place to celebrate my Birthday/ Proposal to my now fiancé! I chose a great place for this special occasion because not only the food was delicious, but the staff helped me greatly with what I wanted to achieve! Thanks Benihana for this great experience. "

  • "Had the lunch boat. It was not very good at all. Very small portions. Had 4 others at our table who had the regular dinners. Their portions looked very small also. The cook who was preparing the dishes did not have any flair which Benihana is known for. Went to the same restaurant 30 + years ago for our honeymoon. It was much better back then. Had more food and the cook was very entertaining. Will not be going back. "

  • "After many years of dining at Benihana restaurants, the one thing I can always say is that they are consistently great at what they do. The food is always delicious, and unmatched - still - by the numerous "hibachi grill" style of restaurants that are so abundant. Dining there is always a very good experience. "
