A word from Benihana - Dearborn
Prepare for a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well as your taste buds. Listen as razor-sharp blades slice and dice through tender steak and juicy chicken. Take in the aroma as savory vegetables, shrimp and lobster sizzle before your eyes.

Sushi appetizers can be ordered in the dining room, or visit our sushi bar, where your sushi chef will prepare fresh sashimi, maki and temaki sushi from our full sushi menu.

  • "Our Chef was amazing, our waitress was not attentive and had to wait for refills, bill, clear table, and etc."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The chef had to keep going back to the kitchen in the middle of cooking, the waiter took forever to come and check on us and it took about an hour for them to even start cooking on the grill and even then he had to go back for butter and again for chicken he forgot.The chef had to keep going back to the kitchen in the middle of cooking for forgotten items, the waiter took forever to come and check on us and it took about an hour for them to even start cooking on the grill. Then I really didn't like the order in which he cook the food everything one at a time making my rice cold by the time I got all me meats and vegetables to go in it. my zucchini wasn't cut up."

  • "We went for my birthday this past Saturday. 6 of us, for a 6:30 reservation. We arrived at 6:15, and we were seated at 6:45. The server/chef were both outstanding in their service, but the host who took care of our drinks and serving our soup/salad had too many tables to assist, and seemed overwhelmed (and our service was slow because of it). The food was only mediocre (rice wasn't seasoned well, and had too much if an onion taste). The restaurant was very smoky, as if the exhaust fans weren't on (but they were. At least ours was, and a few others). For that price, not sure I'll be back anytime soon."

  • "I must admit I was very skeptical about taking my 5 year old to dinner on a weekend here! However, much to my surprise the service was very accomadating! We celebrated her great report card and it was a joyous time!"

  • "I have been at this location twice and it is always very, very, very, very busy. Make sure to always make a reservation. Last time we made one but then the restaurant bumped it somehow and we still had to wait a long time to be seated. This time no problems with the reservation. Sat at the grill table instead of the lounge this time and the other groups at the table were nice. If you sit at the grill expect about a 2 hour outing as everything is cooked as part of a presentation/show and it is for the whole table."

  • "this is the second time I've been to this location in one month and each time the had the seating screwed up. The first time they set someone down before us who came after us, but didn't have a reservation. Now we never would've known this if the hostess didn't say anything. They when we were seated finally it took a waitress ten minutes to come greet us. One the second visit we had a plus ten party and they tried to cram all of us at one table, when I was told I would be able to get two tables by the manager. This place is a seating nightmare. But our waitress and cook on our second visit was amazing and saved the rest our experience and this review."

  • "I've been here in the past but this time the food was outstanding!!! The waitress could have been more prompt and checked on our table more often. Their was a table next to us that was seated after ours and they had their appetizers before we had our drinks. To me the service could have been much better! The food was excellent!"

  • "It was a wonderful evening. We were celebrating a birthday and it was truly special. The atmosphere was fun and exciting as we watched our food be prepared in front of us. We got a chance to taste another type of cuisine that we normally don't and it was great. Our whole party had lots of fun and truly enjoyed the experience."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "Wonderful and fun presentation. I wish it was explained to customers not to uncover rice until all food was grilled. un certain about all sauces for food, it was not explained. some at our table are most if food before meats were done grilling. We did not know how it was done, first time visit."

  • "The food was amazing and tasted delicious. A surprising amount of food for the cost. The chef was very friendly and entertaining. However, our server was horrible. She was very friendly and helpful at the start, but once the chef came she never returned. Our entire table went without any water or drinks for about 40 minutes until we finished our meals. This is unacceptable."

  • "I have always visited the Novi location but went to Dearborn because it was closer to my in laws. Service was horrible. Had to go to the bar to get refills, waitress was slow and did not get our drinks or desserts right. We waited for ever for our cook. Cook was good but didn't have all he needed on his cart to complete our orders. Just a bad time. For that kind of money it should be a lot better."

  • "The food and chef was great! The waitress wasnt so great. She never came to check on us and didn't refill any of our drinks!"
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "This was my first time to this establishment and my dining experience was terrible. First we were not accommodated for our occasion and we were seated with the rudest customers. Next the server did not inform us that the brown rice would take an hour to be prepared and we did not recieve it at all. Third the manager did not even come over to apology to us for the inconvenience and as a server myself I thought this to be extremely unprofessional. I will not be visiting this location again. The cook was fabulous and the food tasted great but they do not value the customer at all."

  • "We always enjoy dining here. You can meet new people at your table and sit and enjoy the entertainment by the chefs. Food is always good. We enjoyed the chef's special this time and were pleased with the amount of food and the quality of the steaks."

  • "Great food. Excellent personible & interactive chef! Server that seemed to give you the feeling that you were being rushed out the door! First time i'd ever experienced this @ this establishment before!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "FUN place to eat. The food is terrific and the Chefs are entertaining. Drink service is slow, you may want to reorder as your drink is getting low. Servers also don't come around as often as needed. Tables are rather cramped. Food is a little pricey but remember you are also getting entertainment. Leave your jacket in the car and don't plan to eat here before a big event. Your clothes will smell like the food since they cook it on a grill right in front of you. Tables hold 8, would be fun to have a party of 8 to fill the entire table. But again, I have met many friendly and fun people here. RESERVATIONS ARE A MUST. This place is pretty busy. Call ahead first. Enjoy!"

    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Food is absolutely amazing. Chefs are fantastic and energetic. Loud so not good for group conversations. Takes at least an hour to make food/eat. Must make reservations and even then you might wait a half hour before being seated."

  • "Chef Henry seasons the food rather well -YUM ! Even though he had to stop leave his grill after several attempts to get a waitress or waiter to get the corn for our sons meal and another entree for another couple who had been seated at the table -do not know them-as well as getting water to refill our glasses for us and the other guests,Chef Henry returned ,served us and finished cooking -with a big smile on his face - Our waitress was very polite she was just super busy -can only do so much when your pulled in several directions with many tables she was on top of of the drinks as best she could be .As always we will continue to come to dine here."

  • "The grill that we were seated at ventilation system did not work so that made for a very bad experience. I had smoke in my face the whole time the chef was cooking. I understand there will be some smoke but I should not have been choking. When I spoke to the manager he just blew it off as this is normal. Poor Management"

  • "First sushi was excellent. Chef did sum tricks but not all. He looked bored kept looking at other tables ( like he didn't know what to do next).at the end he said " Good by in Japanese then stated to other family we were sitting with who spoke a different language " you don't even know what I said" which was rude. Hostess took forever to bring refills."

  • "Took a little longer than our reservation time. Some people in our party ordered food that was different than they were served. The waitress seemed a bit flaky like we had to order twice. And some of the entrees were not served with everything the menu stated it had. Our cook was fun. The food tasted fantastic. Everything was cooked to the right temperature (steaks). Overall everyone enjoyed themselves."

  • "the bartenders were rude the service was terrible we waited Almost an hour for a table after our reservation and then another hour and a half to finally eat. when the waitress showed up it took her 20 minutes just to bring drinks back to the table and Most everyone ordered soft drinks. I finally found the manager pointed out that the group with us has been waiting since 7 p.m. And that we had been there since 7 :15 p.m., it was 9:30 when I did this. I will not go back."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "7:30p rez, didn't get seated until 8:15p. After we initially checked in, went to bar for a drink. Only 2 bartenders working for whole restaurant. Took 20 min to get 2 beers & sake. When we asked if we could order some sushi, the bartender said there was a stop on all sushi temporarily because they were too busy at sushi bar! I ask to speak to manager. The first 2 people couldn't find 1 for me. I finally went to hostess & she went & found 1. The manager's only response was, she would try & get us seated ASAP. She also said she would get us a sushi appetizer on the house. When we were finally seated, a sushi appetizer showed up from the manager. It showed up AFTER we had our drinks & finished other sushi we ordered at table. Chef was okay."

  • "I made reservations for 8:00pm Wednesday night. We did not get sat until 8:45. I have a huge issue with this! We had a large party and all showed up around 7:45 to be sat if not at 8:00 close to 8:00 pm. 8:45 is Ridiculous when you make reservations for 8:00pm. We had to ask the hostess multiple times what the hold up was. She kept saying we would be next in line. After 4 other groups were sat we then were sat. It was very upsetting."

  • "This was my second visit to the Dearborn location. While my sisters and I enjoyed the food, the ambiance was ruined by screaming children. I do understand that kids have a right to be there also, I was looking forward to grown up time. Perhaps there could be a adult only or family only section for situations like this."
