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
  • "our kids love watching the show by the chefs. Food is consistently good and fun place to go for family birthday celebration"
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "It was my birthday and I wanted to try something different. This was my family's first time at Benihana and we ALL loved it! I have 4 children that were kept entertained and that helped."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "Great atmosphere, chef, server, and food. Fun place for a family gathering or special occasion."

  • "I often dine at Benihana's, but this visit was exceptional. The food was awesome and the service was great!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We have dined at Benihana's in different cities and always had good food and a wonderful time. Nonetheless, this experience left us wanting, mainly because our server was not attentive and our table mates were not gregarious and outgoing (no fault of the restaurant). The chef seemed new and inexperienced at cooking and performing simultaneously. In his opening performance, he failed to catch an egg which broke on a tablemate's plate. With his confidence gone, he lost the energy which generally stimulates the patrons during the dining experience. Our server provided drinks and rice, then noticeably disappeared for the rest of the evening. Table patrons were hailing other waiters and restaurant managers for re-orders. Bring your own group!"

  • "I was told this place was amazing and the chefs were entertainers, it was very boring and the food was not the best. Very disappointed."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "If you've been to 1, you've been to them all. It had been a while since I'd been here so I took my husband the week of his birthday (they offer a $30 certificate for birthdays if you sign up in advance). Definitely a fun place for kids but not a great experience if you're interested in having great food and conversation. Atmosphere makes it difficult to talk with your party at a table with up to 6 strangers. Food is tasty but because it is being cooked in front of you, by the time up u get your veggies you've finished your rice and by the time you get the meat part of your entree, you're full. Also, we had a $75 bill for the 2 of us AFTER $30 was taken off. (2 entrees and 3 drinks)"

  • "We've always enjoyed Benihanas for special family events like birthdays. This one has great food and the always entertaining cooks."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "Not sure our chef was from Japan, very likely from Del Rio Texas!"
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "This is the place to take a group that can sometimes be a bit lean in conversation. The broth and fried rice will more than fill you up, and the service is very nice."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Always a great place to dine for special occasions or with a group of friends. Hibachi style japanese food cooked made to order right in front of you by a cool chef who puts on a nice little show for the group of people you're sitting with. Always good food and good overall dining experience."

  • "Wife and I, wanted a memorial evening for Our Anniversary and our experience was Great, our Cook named George made it a Fun and a Special Evening, He had us all laughing and I felt like we were at a Comedy Club and the food was Awesome....Highly Recommended"
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "I always love going to Benihana's for celebrate my birthday. It's just a nice atmosphere to have a great meal and socialize with your friends. Watching your food being prepared is great -- especially if the chef is very outgoing and likes to be a part of the fun. The food is always great and there is a wonderful drink selection too."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "I loved eating here. Was a little down about not having a choice on adding shrimp and chicken together to the rice and no choice of salad dressing but would definitely go back and recommend others to eat here."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "If you want a different dining experience this may be your choice but as any establishment, depending when you go or who you get for a chef, will decide your experience there. Each chef has their own little twist when cooking. Some are better than others."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Uncomfortable sitting with others that you don't know for starters. Couldn't understand what the waitress was saying. When the onion soup was brought out, a long string of hair was on the spoon which was a turnoff. Napkin had hair on it and when we asked for a replacement, we were told "you have one" My guest ordered the seafood soup and the ladle brought out to her was dirty. The food was good, the chef was courteous with neat tricks but I was looking for more intimacy since my reservations were for two. I will still recommend for groups or parties."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "My husband had the Hibachi Supreme and I had the Land and Sea Specialty dinners. We really enjoyed the food, atmosphere and sharing tables with others, which added to the ambience and conversations. The grill chef was a lot of fun and entertaining. Make sure you know what you are supposed to get with the meal, and ask for things if they don't come. We had to do that twice. We were given a gift dessert to share for our anniversary, which was very nice!"
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Made reservations though open table and still had to wait another 15 minutes. Food was great however it took atleast 10 minutes for server to arrive. Then it was taking a whole for someone to check up on refills. Outside of that everything else was great."

  • "Everything here was great the food, the service I also do plan on coming back again I found the restaurant incredible"

  • "We had a great time for my husbands birthday. Our waiter was wonderful, and soo much fun. He had a great personality. The cook saw we has a 3 yr. old and made it extra entertaining for him. This is our traditional birthday place for each of the family and will continue the tradition. The only thing I was sad about is....they used to always take our family photo for birthdays and they didn't do that this time. We always have a large group that meets there to celebrate with us and it's been fun to keep the photos and look back over the years. Please bring back the pictures. That was always a special treat to have ! We still love Benihana's and we will continue to dine there though."

  • "The girl who took our order had a tongue studd or other contraption in her mouth preventing her from clearly articulating her words. The entire order taking process was difficult to understand by my guests and myself. During the meal she did not come by to check if we needed something else to drink. At the end of our meal she calculated the bill wrong charging our bottle of wine to the other party sitting at our table. When the mistake was discovered she recalculated the bill issuing a second bill wherein she forgot to charge for a tea we had ordered. It took three (3) times before we finally got a corrected bill ! The overall experience from the moment we arrived till the moment we left can be characterized as sub-par and dissapointing."

  • "Great service and great food! Love the chefs, they have such great personalities and are so fun!! They rally ate the ones who make the experience. Was so awesome! Love that they take pictures of your group or who your with for your birthday and print them for you to take home!!! Turned out as one of my favorite pics :)"

  • "so much fun for birthday. A great place to share with my mom and best friend. And we had a really great tablemates. Made the night very special."

  • "The server was super friendly. He took my birthday and got me a drink quickly. Everyone was happy. Food was pretty good but lots of butter. Not for healthy diet. Also, some burnt bits on the food and I have to take it off. I think I am pretty picky about it. Great time and good people to share food with."

  • "birthday dinner for son and family. Dinner was good and always fun the steak was overcooked but every thing else was great. We have been here many times but not recently so it was good to see little had changed but the table side chef had a few new tricks up his sleeve. Fun place for a family dinner."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "I took my husband there for his Birthday. I placed the reservation online, it was very easy, and they had it when we got there. The chef was funny , energetic, and knew his business. The onion soup was salty, and when we said something, it was promptly replaced and the soup was very good. We had 3 birthdays at our table and we had fun."

  • "This place was awesome. The service was great and the food was equally to my satisfaction. We had a private dinning room, they brought our cake out and served it. It was so nice. I can't wait to go back!"

  • "I made reservations and still had to wait another 45 min to be seated. Food was alright but the appetizers were horrible. Could have paid less the price and ate at the hibachi in Mansfield."

  • "It was ok. However, I did make my reservation as 1/15/14 while sitting at Chipoltle with my girlfriend through Open Table. Since it was Valentines Day, I knew I had that traffic would be bad based on traffic and the busiest time during the year next to any other major holiday. I took it upon myself to change the check in time from 8pm to 9pm. When we got there which was early, around 8:45pm it was just as I thought, busy, packed and chaotic. Part of the reason was and I'm assuming this to be true, was the fact that, there were people there that didn't even have a reservation which made alot of it tough on the establishment. Instead of being seated at 9pm we didn't get seated until 9:20pm. All and all the experience was good."

  • "We were looking for a more romantic place. Not the restaurant's fault, but there were many, many more kids, in fairly large groups for a Saturday evening. A lot of kids running around the tables which caused a distraction for us. The cook did a good job and played it off as best he could, but all in all, I think patrons would be better off at Shoguns or one of the local grills instead."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "As usual the food is very good. The free birthday dinner is hard to beat. The chef's show is fun and kids really get a kick out of it. So there are lots of good reasons to go."
