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!

  • Dearborn Benihana is a Disaster!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 11/24/2014
    I had a reservation, but they failed to register me at my check in time and we waited over 2.5 hours! My party was placed in bar/lounge after waiting, without an apology. They simply said they were busy and since I made the reservation that day, there must be an issue w/short notice. I am a HUGE Benihana fan, but this location stinks! The menus were limited and the food (from kitchen) was too peppery (black pepper). To make things worse, it was cold. For the first time ever, I did not finish my Benihama meal due to taste and sheer exhaustion. Spent over $110 before tip - Worth $25. (Three people). Trust me - If you want Benihana ... Drive to Northville/Livonia or Troy. Do not go to Dearborn.

    Lunch offers some great prices, food is basically the same! Dinner is overpriced, but still really good! The only downfall is some chiefs are definitely not as good as others. David, Robert, Eli and 1 are 2 others rock, the rest just don't deliver excellent food.

    Never had the opportunity to sit down, was completely looked over. Waited over an hour before saying something. My 10 year anniversary dinner was completely ruined. I do not recommend this place, the staff members are completely unprofessional. End up going somewhere else at 10:15. When arriving at 8:15.

    Our cook was a Hispanic male who was very entertaining and helpful. Our waitress was a black female and was awful. I can not reca their names. She got our drink and then we didn't see her until our bill was ready at one point our cook went to the kitchen to try to find her, because he needed something. We wanted refills on drinks and never got them. We have been to this location aot and this was our first experience with awful service. The cook made up for it and so I think we will be back.

    There were three of us in my group on a Friday night, me and my 2 older children. We were celebrating a birthday. I put it on the reservation, the server asked if we were celebrating anything so I told her, & the grill chef asked as well. No special treatment, no song, no dessert. Spent $108 for decent food cooked in 10 tons of butter, salad drowned in watered-down dressing (puddle at the bottom of the bowl). No alcohol, no appetizer sushi, no dessert, and still pricey. None of us had leftovers due to smaller portion sizes (fine since it used to be too much, but would be nice to have a bit for lunch the next day). Hibachi chef kept scorching things and bringing out a paint scraper to clear yuck off the space. Not worth the money.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/3/2014
    I am very un-happy that my credit card was charged for more than what we had written in for a tip. Our bill was $87.08 and we tipped $17 and wrote in the total as $104.08....yet our card was charged for $117.08. When I tried to call them to let them know I was on hold for 3 minutes before speaking to anyone, then another 3 minutes before speaking to someone else that was supposed to be the manager, she informed me that a manager had just "walked by" and she was going to grab them...I waited on hold or another 2 minutes. The manager finally came on and listened to me and said she would do some research on it. I explained to her that I did not authorize my card for that amount and it needs to be refunded. She said she would call me back.

    The staff was friendly but our chef seemed un-interested unlike the other chefs around us at other tables. It was later in the evening so perhaps he had a long day but it was Very Noticeable. I also ordered a carry out for my parents but after waiting 30 minutes my order was completely wrong & I had to wait longer for missing items like Chicken & Shrimp. The server was very nice & apologized for the mix up but I have to say it wasn't the best night.

    I made a 7:30pm reservation for my husband's birthday, and was not seated until 8:30pm. The doorway was so crowded that we could barely squeeze into the door. Several people were complaining that they had waited 1 1/2 hours for their reservation. People without reservations had been waiting over 2 hours. Once we were seated, service and food were both very good. I will not be making reservations here again due to the long wait time.

    My family & I have been going there for a long time and had always enjoyed it in the past. But the last 3 times we went there weren't that great. This past Wednesday was the icing on the cake. The workers at the front desk were rude, the waitress in the sushi bar was rude, our server was extremely unprofessional, the chef seemed new, our food had no flavor and he had trouble catching the shrimp tails in his pocket and hat... It's time to try somewhere new.

    Despite my reservations and all the empty tables, I was told there would be about a 15 minute wait as they were short staffed. Although our waitress was nice and attentive the food seemed to take a long time to arrive. It had been a while since I visited Benihana in Dearborn, so I was surprised to see that the portion size of the lunch boat was cut in half. The 2 slithers of sashimi were not at all fresh in fact, they were still stuck together from being unfrozen, and the price increased over 20%. To make matters worse, after I got home, I received an email from Benihana stating that my reservations had been cancelled. I contacted Open Table and they resolved the matter by crediting my account (100 pts). Will definitely not be returning.

    At this restaurant it use to be special. Now, it is below mediocre. No photograph of our experience was offered (which is included w/ dining at this restaurant at hibachi), took their sweet time seating us even though we had a reservation, they were notified that it was my birthday but just gave me chocolate syrup on my ice cream. The waitress was TERRIBLE! 2 of my guests asked for white rice repeatedly and eventually 1 got it. I asked for lemonade twice and got strawberry lemonade, I reached the end of my beverage and never got a refill, as soon as the chef was done cooking/performing she began packing up our food, after our food was packaged she gave us our ice cream. On top of all of that, using the birthday voucher is nearly impossible

    You will wait, even with a reservation. Honestly, the best part of the meal is the chicken fried rice soaked in garlic butter, add seven bucks automatically to each entrée for it because you will need two cups apiece. You are supposed to get free steamed rice with dinner but when you get the special chicken rice you do not get the steamed. Benihana scam. For what you pay the rice should come with. No free green tea, even though advertised. Filet is cooked more than you request, so ask for rare for a mid rare. The shrimp is overcooked, quite rubbery and chewy. No free Haagen Dazs ice cream or sorbet (read online menu, it says it comes with). For what you pay I expected so much more. It felt so nickel and dimed and shabby. We won't be back.

    I was excited to see that reservations could still be made the day before I wanted to go. I booked them arrived early yet still had to wait an hour to be seated. It was busy so I expected some sort of wait. But when It took another twenty minutes for my drinks and soup I was out done. But that wasn't it just the long wait you wouldn't believe that not even five minutes after the chef was done, the waitress was back with boxes. So I drove a hour to wait a hour and a half to be rushed out in fifteen minutes...I won't be back.
