A word from Benihana - Denver
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.

Diner Reviews
  • "It's a satisfying experience from start to finish. I like the repetitive and often silly entertainment while they cook. The food is great, service is great, I always leave happy. I tend to get a mix of meat and seafood like the Samaurai - Yum!! Looking forward to my next visit."

  • "I took my daughter, her boyfriend, her mother and myself to Benihana because I was the only one in the group that had witnessed the show that they put on while feeding you a wonderful dinner. The show was terrific but, the overall noise level was a bit overpowering. The whole restaurant smelled yummy. Made you want to stop and try some of everyone's dinner just to see if it was as good as it looked."

  • "We brought our 7 year old daughter so she could enjoy the show of fire, juggling utensils, etc. No fire....I guess since they have added so many cooking tables to the restaurant they can't do any sort of open flame anymore. Our chef dropped his utensils so many times while trying to juggle that we all started ducking and just prayed he could actually cook. We asked for a knife to cut our daughter's steak more as the chef gave her huge chunks. We were told that only the chef had knives and that we couldn't have one. At least the chef relented and let us use one of his to cut her food to edible sizes. It was a bad experience to say the least. I hate to give a poor review, there's just no way around it. "

  • "Benihana is always a great choice for our family. My wife and I love the food and our kids love to watch the chefs. Our last trip was for lunch and it was another great experience as we frequent this location often. Rose, our server, was very attentive and our Chef, Tony, was great. He was great with the kids and his good was awesome. The value at Benihana is great! We always leave dinner with enough food for the next day but the lunch prices are even better! It is way more than enough food and the prices average around $11. Can't beat that. "

Everything, simply everything, could not have been more perfect. Quite a show of how professionally wonderful your Benihana's has always been and still is. Keep up the wonderful experience of dining. Thank all involved!!! We will always be back!!!! "

  • "Beni Hana has always been one of my favorite restaurants. I love to go with a group of people for my birthdays. My parents started that trend, and beni hana never lets me down. The food is amazing, the cooks are hilarious and do little tricks. The birthday picture is always the perfect end to a perfect evening. "

  • "We went to Benihana's for my 15 yr olds birthday beause he is a meat eater & picky. We now will always have to return for my 7 yr olds birthday because he cannot stop talking about it. At first he was overwhelmed by all the activity & noises but once the shrimp started flying he was jumping out of his seat. So now it will be a birthday tradition for my boys."

  • "Our kids really enjoyed the interaction with chef cooking the meal infront of us. She had a good sense of humor and was very entertaining. The foold was excellent and plenty of it! Overall a great night out for a family or a date night!"

  • "It was great. Only 3 at our table. Did get to talk to other guest. Steak on the special was very chewy. It was a good time, but I don't think I will go out of my way to go back."

  • "We had a very nice meal, enjoyed the chef and the food was tasty. You would not want to go here very often unless you have lots of money. The food can be expensive, but tipping the waiter/waitress and the chef will cost plenty as well, and they are very good to you so you will want to tip them generously."

  • "We all know that if you want to find people who have the same birthday as you, go to Benihana. The food is awesome and it's entertaining. We happened to go on a night that the birthday tables next to us were so loud that we couldn't here the person sitting directly next to us. Not the restaurant's fault, but it still made the experience less enjoyable."

  • "This is a great restaurant but seems to be tailored best to children. The loud level of noise lends to the excitement and entertainment for children. Not ideal for conversation or a romantic evening for celebrations. Fun to watch your food cooked infront of you though and the waiting staff was incredible!"

  • "My sisters and I have gone to Benihana for every single birthday for the past 10 years, it's is a popular, chain restaurant with pretty good food. It's not gourmet or trendy, but up until now it's been consistent. Until I visited the Denver location: there was no yum yum sauce. Some of you may know this as shrimp sauce or orange sauce, whatever you call it-you know what it is. It's delicious and I put it on everything I am served: veggies, shrimp, fried rice, mushrooms, steak--everything. I went to Benihana for my birthday because I have since moved away from my sisters and I just wanted my birthday dinner to taste like home. and it didn't. The service, however, was excellent. But I can't say I will return. It's just not the same. :("

  • "Always fun to dine at Benihana's. This occasion was my birthday with my parents. Great company as we were a small group of three. Went Diablo style with my rice as a recommendation, in which I also recommend. I ordered the Benihana Special (Steak and Lobster tail), others ordered the Shrimp Supreme and the Scallops Special. Took our group picture and talked about doing this again next year."

  • "Overall the experience was good but it doesn't compare to my previous experiences at Benihana's. The chef wasn't at all engaging like those around us, which made the time awkward and seem drawn out."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "I've been to many Benihana's nationwide, but this was my first time at this Benihana's. Like all of my other experiences, the food was great. The service was a little slow at times, but otherwise good. The chef cooked everything wonderfully, but was not as entertaining as I've seen elsewhere. When you go to Benihana's, you can expect that the quality of the food is good, but the entertainment varies depending on the chef. Sometimes you can get a chef that is outgoing and entertaining, other times they just cook in front of you."

  • "When they are not overlooked! hibachi style is my favorite way to have shrimp. Mine were prepared perfectly - not dry at all, cooked through but tender. My husbands scallops were as well. His chicken though, tended to be dry. Also loved the soup and salad."

  • "Although I am not a big fan of this chain, and I will never understand adding BUTTER to STEAK or why they use iceberg lettuce, we went for my teen daughter's birthday and the chef was better than usual - interactive, attentive and responsive. They took photos and gave them to us for free, along with ice cream. One gets a lot for the money. The food itself is pretty basic but fine - even if my seafood medley was meager. I don't like that Benehana is unable to have all the meals ready at the same time & give patrons their veggie with their protein - by the time the chef began to cook my daughter's steak, she had finished her rice & vegetables & everyone else who ordered shrimp was already done. The tea at the end of the meal was very nice."

  • "We dined here for a date night and have been to these kind of places many times with the food actually being so-so. THis experience was far from so-so. The service was great and the entertainment was great as well. The food was nothing short of great. We will be dining here again in the near future."
