A word from Benihana - Dearborn
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!

  • "Food was great service was great but wait time can improve"

  • "I made reservations for my fiancé to celebrate his birthday. First, outside the restaurant were people smoking by the entrance doors. When we walk in, there was a crown about 20-25 people standing around. there was no organization and difficult to get to the kiosk to check-in. When we were seated, the waitress was in a rush to take orders instead of giving us time. The cook was not so friendly and sociable. The cook top must have been too hot or the vent system above was not working properly. There was nothing but white smoke that our eyes were burning. The food was salty. I ordered a Haiku Colada that the waitress did not bring until she brought the checks. And didn't bring refills while we ate. She just disappeared. never again will i go!"

  • "Reservations at 4pm for Birthday dinner with one guest. We were seated promptly. We both ordered Benihana Delight chicken and shrimp. I was disappointed with the ginger salad. The dressing just did not taste good. I would have preferred more choices besides ginger salaud or onion soup. The mustard sauce was very good, and I was given 1 mustard sauce and one ginger sauce. I would have preferred 2 mustard sauces or more of a selection. I ordered the strawberry lemonade with free refills. The waitress was professional and attentive and refilled without prompting. The chef was courteous and skilled with a terrific personality. Overall it was an hour and a half for the complete meal including dessert (chocolate ice cream)"

  • "This has been multiple times in a row the service, food and atmosphere have only got worse. I will never return to this location."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "Server was awful - not friendly or attentive. Had to wait too long for drinks. Witnessed filthy habits in the restaurant including food spilled on the floor and not picked up for more than 20 minutes with employees stepping over a huge pile of food on the floor. The chef did a nice job and food tasted great. We were rushes out of there in less than 10 minutes from the chef finishing when the server arrives with take out boxes and asked if we wanted our ice cream. No option for after dinner drinks or cocktails. Not the atmosphere and fun experience I remember from years ago."

  • "The food is absolutely delicious when you sit at the steak house. My boyfriend and I were having lunch in the steak house section. The chef ran out of rice, so he ordered our extra rice from the sushi bar it was horrible and dry. So then he had another chef make our rice at the other chefs steak house section and it was delicious! The rest of the food was amazing"

  • "poor ventilation, one person sang happy bday for a second for my son. the cook rarely talked, don't get enough food for the money you pay, the cook give others food because they ask even if it's not what they ordered, leaving paying customers short. The waitress didn't bring requested items ex. (Side garlic butter, cherries, water ).. very unsatisfied"

  • "Our waitress was the worst. She had no personality. She talkedto fast and could not understand. We order sushi rolls and she never brought us the soy sauce. She was in a hurry for everything. Our chef was top notch. Henry was his name. Our waitress name was Diana."

  • "The waiter did not refill our drinks even though our reservation was at 7:30pm and the chef did not make it our table until 8:30pm It was a very long wait although we had a reservation. I would definitely choose another restaurant next time."
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "They didn't have enough silverware so we had to wait for forks. They were short handed with chefs so we had to wait for an available chef. The wait was entirely too long considering I had a reservation and my party was there. We sat at the table promptly but after that everything went very slow. I had been dying to go to Benihanas and the food wasnt that great. The soup and salad was delicious though."
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "We waited at least 5 minutes until our server finally came to the table. She was super rude the entire dining experience. She didn't bring anyone drink refills until their cup was empty. Anything that was asked of her, she rolled her eyes. The plus side, our hibachi griller was excellent and the food was really good. I would visit this location again but hope I have a better server!!!!"

  • "Enjoyed our experience very much. It was our 5 year olds pick after preschool graduation. The hostess staff and our waitress were top notch. Our chef however, just seemed to be going through the motions. Very lackluster and I'm pretty sure left some things out, and/or did them with minimal enthusiasm. Disappointing, but the food was good as always."

  • "I was really shocked at the service when we attended Benihana for my party of five first of all I had a 2:00 pm reservation and we were not seated until 2:40 pm the waiter was unattentive and horrible. He forgot to give us silverware and he forgot to bring us our appetizer sushi. He did not check on us for beverage refills and to top it all off he spilled my food when I needed a to go box. The only reason I Did not call for the manager is because we felt sorry for him because he had mentioned he thought he would be fired because of his horrible service on that day. My worse experience at Benihana to date and we frequent there at least 2 to 3 times per month."

  • "It was really fun to go to Benihana for the first time, after I've heard so much about it. We had great service and a fun chef. My skeptical husband even enjoyed himself! He said, "Next time we come here, we're getting the chicken fried rice. It's worth the extra cost." :) Thanks for a fun evening!"

  • "This was my first visit and I was amazed! The food was amazing and I liked that you are in and out in less than a hour! The staff was amazing! I will be back for sure! Monroe county could use one of these restaurants! The fried rice was so good and great leftovers for breakfast! I don't eat out much because I am a very picky eater. But I was pleasantly surprised! Wish one of these restaurants was closer to my home!"

  • "I have been to several hibachi places before and had a great time. Decided to try Benihana while in the area. Every thing was SLOW and disorganized, I never really got to eat my meal because I didn't get my rice till the food was cold and the checks were coming. The sushi roll came while the food was cooking so it wasn't cold. The appetizer came after the meal. The temperature inside was unbearable, being outside was a breath of fresh air and it was 86 degrees that evening. When we asked the chef where my rice was because I got the regular white rice he said the waitress gets in and again this was when he was cleaning the grill, why didn't he ask her sooner? Most other places the chef has all the rice."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Food is great but service is lacking. Waiter didn't know the menu and actually asked customer to show menu and to see what the dish was when the customer asked a question. Brought out our bill in the middle of dinner and had not even brought out our desserts yet. Collected the bills while we were still eating dessert and before he cleared ANY of the dirty dishes off the table. Did not even say thank you for the tip. Then I went outside and the valet made me collect my own car because he didn't know how to drive a manual car....but still wanted a tip. Could be a great restaurant if the service ever catches up to the food."

  • "My husband and I visited Benihana-Dearborn this weekend. Two weeks prior to that I had gone with a friend. On my first visit there, mushrooms were a part of our vegetables with our lunch. This time when I went, the chef only made mushrooms for 2 people!! There were 6 of us at the table! I asked for mushrooms, and the chef just bluntly said no! The waitress barely came to our table to check on us, but about 5 minutes after the chef left, she comes over with to go boxes trying to rush us out! Needless to say I asked for a refill and it took forever for me to get my refill. My experience this time really sucked from the chef to the waitress!"

  • "I have only been to the Dearborn Benihana. The food and chefs are always great, wait staff not always but we had an outstanding waiter this visit. There is always a wait for a table even with reservations. They are strict about policies and manager would not authorize a birthday mug for my grandson when his postcard had not arrived, which was a little unsettling given the limitations of using the birthday coupons so it isn't worth another visit for a $7 or $8 mug. I enjoy going here on my birthday but wouldn't go out of my way to eat here without the substantial discount because it gets really pricey with beverages and add-ons."

  • "We recently had not such a good experience here but because we had went so many times before I scheduled my aunts birthday dinner back at this one instead of trying out another location. BAD mistake. The day was 90 degrees out and inside the air was not working, understanding this isn't something they can help we stayed to enjoy our food. However behind our table was a register so every time a waitress was there(which there wasn't really anytime there wasn't someone there) they complained about the heat and poor working conditions. As well as the chef put food on someone's plate realizing he made a mistake he took it back of the plate and mixed it back on the grill to add to the correct plate. This was completely disgusting to my group."

  • "We had a couple who was very unpleasant next to us. The manager came over for them once but they still ruined the whole evening. Its hard to spend that amount of money and have a horrible night. My husband won't be taking me back any time soon."

  • "I went for my birthday dinner and was sorely disappointed in the surprisingly slow service to start. The waitress was busy with other tables for 15+ minutes before we had drinks, even water. After she finally got around to taking our order, the cook was an additional 20+ minute wait. There were no tricks or niceties by the cook, very surprising. I thought the food tricks were standard. The food was good and cooked to order, however. The waitress didn't provide ice cream dessert for everyone although included in the meal. Also, she didn't ask what ice cream flavor I wanted and brought a birthday dessert. She responded poorly when I told her that I wanted a different flavor. She provided subpar service. Overall, terrible experience! Don't go!"
