    Benihana is a great experience, whether your celebrating a family event, relaxing with co-workers for "whatever", or just feel like having a somewhat "special" meal. Our servers were amusing and entertaining (although to be truthful, we go to Benihana 9 or 10 times per year, and we've had a chef or two that admirably cooked our orders, but the interaction levels varied.) As usual, we over-ordered, and had plenty of leftovers to take home ! (One of the reasons that we go to Benihana instead of the "other restaurant" in Addison is because of the simple addition of their wonderful soup before the meal . . . . )

    Went for a birthday dinner for 2 of my favorite lady friends. The host allowed us to bring flowers earlier in the day to be shared after dinner with the birthday ladies. This made the flowers a wonderful surprise for them. At the end of the meal just before the dessert arrived, I just asked the waiter "Is Oven' working tonight?" That was the pre-arranged clue "bring the flowers on out". How diner friendly can you be? How helpful! This made our evening a remarkable, memorable and rewarding experience. And, the Benihana Trio was wonderful, the wine very tasty, the experience one we will recommend to you.

    On last two visits to different Benihanas we have noticed the food preparers did not pay close attention to needs of guests. Some cannot eat sesame seeds or seeds of any sort, yet the distribution was prolific. Others do not care for soy sauce, yet food saturated before objections raised by individuals. Suggest requesting preparers to pay close attention to the alergies, likes, dislikes, and needs of each guest. Otherwise, please continue with the wonderful experience offered each time we visit. Might also hire more Japanese servers rather than those not from the Orient. Makes the dining experience more authentic in a Japanese restaurant.

    This was my first time at the resturant and I really enjoyed it. The food was good and it was a nice environment. The next time I go I would prefer to go with a group of friends. I didn't know that I would be seated at a table with people I did not know but it was ok because I enjoy meeting new people.

    Think if there is something u ordered and dont like it they should ask if they could fix it or take it off the bill. In my scenario it was a side of broccoli. I was dismissed pretty much when I said I didnt like it. They ignore u when they dont want u to be heard. Was there for my 40th birthday. They knew before entering the restaurant and I had a birthday coupon. Only focused on the other bday at the table. Kinda acknowledge me at the end. Overall food was nice. The dallas location is the only good bennihanna!

    We were celebrating one of our co-workers birthday and the food was great, the timing was awesome. We made reservation and didn't have to wait at all. Our cook (William) was not personable at all, he didn't entertain us, he was quiet and not sociable like the other table behind us cook was. I have never experienced a cook at any other location that was dull as William.

    Was less than impressed with the customer service. Did not take note of the two birthday celebrations. I had to tell the waitress about the birthday ice cream we are supposed to get. ( i knew from previous visits) and also to take our "Benihana Photo". Very rude chef and lack of personality and showmanship.

    It was very noisy and we were in a room near the entrance which had people spilling over into the dining area. Our server forgot my wife's and daughter's steamed rice until the meal was nearly complete. I seem to forget the overall cost compared to the service provided and come back to this place about once a year. I hope I remember to find somewhere else to go next time we are in the mood for Hibachi.

    We had a group of people attend , so we hade to be split up in 2 different tables. Which was fine, but when we got the bill we had a hard time trying to explain how we wanted to pay for the bill. I was paying for people on both tables…. They did not want to split the bills. I had to pay for my WHOLE table! I just wanted to pay for a few people on my table and few people on the other table. SO just a Disclaimer…. Be sure to sit on the same table with the people you are paying for or if they are paying for you.

    It was a Thursday night and it was going to be a special evening. We have a group of 4 and were promptly seated upon arrival. Drinks were served and the menus presented. The server was professional and attentive. The chef was entertaining and hosted an enjoyable show. The meals were cooked right in front of us and prepared exactly to order. If you have an upcoming special occasion, this is a great place for that meal.

    Always a great place for tweens and teen birthdays. Also a hit with younger kids- from the bridge over the fishpond, to the good luck cat- its always a good show. A photo to remember the night is a nice touch- and an ice cream for the birthday child. Enough food for lunch the next day- good sushi, too.

  • Chicken Fried Rice Cost
    Juice
    Dined on 9/1/2014
    Apparently you will be charged $3.50 for fried rice w/ chicken when you order your entree. I assumed the fried rice came with the meal because I don't know anyone that would have steam white rice with hibachi style food. Then again, who knows. Just be prepared to see that on your bill after and they won't tell you while you're ordering that it costs extra. Besides that, the food was good and the chef was nice.

    We came in late on a Saturday evening for my birthday dinner. Just the wife and myself. The good- Waitress was fantastic. Very sweet elderly Asian lady who was eager to help, attentive, and quick. Our table cook as very fun and interacted with the kids at the table really well. Bad- Food, prices, structure was old and looked badly aged, again the food was just really awful. We did go about an hour before close, though this is no excuse in my mind. We are frequent visitors of another hibachi establishment in the suburbs and found benihana non competitive on price and quality. Additionally, the sushi was very bland and slimy.

    The food and the chef were great but we had several problems with our meal. First off, I was supposed to get chicken fried rice but it was missing on the ticket. I didn't get my rice until after the meat was done and only after asking for it more than once. Second, the meat was cooked medium rare instead of medium well and had to be taken off of the plate and redone after everyone else's food was off the grill. I suspect this was also because it was not indicated correctly on the ticket. Finally, two of our meals were supposed to come with green tea and either ice cream or sherbet. We were given neither. Finally when we asked about it we were told that some meals came with either green tea or sherbet. Seriously - at these prices?

    We enjoy the "feel" of this place – somewhat like a family dining table but can also be private if so desired. We enjoy celebrating each other's birthday month and try to explore the various cuisine. Occasionally, we will have a light faire and enjoy appetizers and sake in the bar. When dining, Rocki's choice is my favorite. My wonderful wife enjoyed the salmon with avocado sauce. Everyone enjoyed the fried rice....a perennial favorite. The table show was entertaining as always and the service was excellent. Oh yes, try the Nigori unfiltered sake.

    In my opinion the service should match the food and vice versa. For me this was not the case. Although we had a reservation, we waited about 25min for our table. Which the host that checked is in for our reservation was not personable what so ever. Keep in mind that we were there for someone birthday, which I specified in my notes when making the reservation. Well when the waitress came to finally seat us she just walked off without us. Also, this was our first time there and a special occasion they thought it appropriate to give us a trainee.. When the hibachi chef cooked for us they forgot my fried rice and he did not do but minimal tricks. He did a beating heart and an onion train. No chopping. Service didn't match the prices.
