A word from Benihana - Farmington Hills
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!

    Group of 7 of us went here for dinner to celebrate a birthday. We had a good time. Some of us ordered Sushi before the cooking began and it was excellent. Our Chef was energetic and engaged the group. The food was tasty and well portioned. We had a great experience.

    I was very excited to take my young cousins there whom had never been and one of them recently had a birthday. Chef Armando was wonderful, and kept us entertained. It was the end of the dinner that left me upset. Not even five minutes before the table across from us had the staff wish happy birthday with enthusiasm. The hostess asked the my cousin what flavor of ice cream she wanted and the host brought it out for her with a candle. It took almost 10 min for them to sing happy birthday and I could see her excitement wane as each minute passed by and when they sang it was very unenthusiastic almost as if to their chagrin. I may not spend as much money as others but I don't deserve to feel second rate.

    Waited a long time before soup/salads were served. Too many soups were brought to the table. Not enough salads. Long wait to receive salad. Extra rice was ordered, but not on ticket for chef to cook. Chef did not have bowls to put rice into once rice was done... had to run to get bowls herself. Also had to have shrimp entree brought out since it was not on her tray. Drinks were refilled very slowly. Bill was charged for an extra rice. Was not asked if we wanted dessert at the end.

    Came to use my $30 birthday dinner. We made reservations and were seated within ten minutes of getting there, pretty good. Waitress took our order, then it took the chef an HOUR! to come with our food to then START cooking. We ordered sushi right off the bat as well and that took about 45 minutes to come. Pretty ridiculous for one roll of sushi as an APPETIZER (got long after our soup and salad and just before chef came with meats). The chef was great though and food was delicious. Overall was good, just way too long of wait times.

    We always enjoy the Benihana Experience. Although we live in Dearborn and close to the Dearborn Location we travel the extra miles to Farmington. The food quality seems to be a little better and the food is less spiced. Also the tables have a bit more elbow room. Although we will still frequent our Dearborn Location, we will always try and head to Farmington First

    I've gone to Benihana's for dinner on my birthday for the last couple of years. I've gone only a couple more times in-between. I ABSOLUTELY love Benihana! The reason for my infrequent visits is that the closest location to me is more than an hour away! Please open a location in Lansing or East Lansing, Michigan! It is a college town and I believe Benihana would do very well in this area! Please look into this! I'm pretty sure I would eat there at least once a week if it were closer. I am obsessed with this place...I just wish it were closer.

    Dined on 8/19/2014
    I made a reservation for my friend and I a few days in advanced and ended up being seated with a bunch of kids under the age of 10 and their parents. We had to to wait at least an extra 45 minutes for our chef to begin serving us because the parents couldn't control their kids. The kids were running around the restaurant and being very disruptive. At one point a peice of rice flew across the grill and landed on my chest. I have been to other Benihana restaurants and loved it. This might be the first time that I had an awful experience. If you're going to make people pay that kind of money you should at least make sure they're comfortable. It was a complete rip off.

    We were seated at 7 but chef didn't come to table until 8 - very slow service but the food was good. The manager was very impersonable when we pointed out we'd been waiting for an hour for the chef to arrive. She disputed with us strongly. Not very professional. The chef was understanding, however. The dining party still enjoyed the evening just a bit appalled by the manager.

    A little expensive, but a great place to celebrate a birthday or other special occasion. We prefer the hibachi section and greatly enjoy the entertaining presentation of the cooks. The sushi is good and all dishes can be ordered anywhere in the restaurant. Reservations are a must for any evening of the week.

    This was my third or fourth time at this location and they changed some things around but it's still a nice place. Our chef Blanca was very nice and the food was great. I came for my daughters 17th bday with with my other 2 kids and her friend. The older kids liked the food but my 9 year old didn't care for it. They are picky eaters at this age anyway. I would definitely go back.
