A word from Benihana - Farmington Hills
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 mouth-watering steak and tender chicken. Take in the aroma as savory vegetables, shrimp and lobster sizzle before your eyes.

Or visit our sushi bar, where your sushi chef will prepare the freshest sashimi, maki and temaki sushi, all with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine.

Diner Reviews
  • "First we started off with an 8 o'clock reservation. Got there 20 minutes early to have a drink at the bar. Got seated very promptly. We were excited because we has heard such good things. We ordered our food and waited and waited and waited, at least 25 minutes on the cook to show up. The food was ok but, not anything special. The server never showed back up after or during our meal to refill our drinks or get another bar drink. Honestly 120 dollars later we were not satisfied... I would not waste my money again on overpriced Japanese. It is a chain restaurant we should have known better. It's all about the name. Probably won't try it again."

  • "Everything was great, our waiter was on top of things and our Chef was skilled with all the tricks they do on the Hibachi grill. Food is always fresh and great. If you like drinks they make a pina colada mojito that is awesome. The Las vegas roll is also to die for."

  • "My wife and I had been to Benihana's several times and love it every time. Brought some relatives, the first time for them and all they could do was rave about how fun and how good the food was."

  • "The food was incredibly good. (Best I have ever had after a number of visits to this restaurant over a few years!) Our waiter was outstanding. He not only managed to keep track of the 10 orders at the table but he was extremely patient and understanding with my family's picky eating preferences. He kept our drinks filled without asking and was overall extremely pleasant. I am very appreciative of good service."

  • "I love the food at Benihana. It can get very expensive, depending on your taste. I usually try to go at lunchtime to save a bit of money. I would definitely make a reservation for dinner as this restaurant tends to be crowded at dinner time. I much prefer sitting on the sushi bar side vs the hibachi grill side for a couple of reasons - 1. Unless you bring enough people to fill one table at the hibachi grill you will more than likely be seated with people you don't know, and 2. You tend to get your food a little more quickly. For a first-timer I would recommend sitting on the hibachi grill side as the chef "performs" while cooking."

  • "My hubby and I went out for the evening and it was our first time trying Benihana's. The food was excellent! The portions of the Chicken Fried Rice could have been bigger for the $3.50 it was per bowl - as we had to get a second one after the fact, but other than that we did not have a single complaint about the food or service. The restaurant setting itself did need some work as 2 of the light fixtures on the wall were missing and it did look a bit "ghetto", but all in all we enjoyed ourselves and loved the food."

  • "Our immediate family is spread out all over the state of Michigan. On special occasions, such as birthdays, we like to meet at Benihana's. The food is always good, the staff entertaining, and the family moments are priceless. We had the best chef so far. Her cooking skills were awesome and the food was excellent. I would highly recommend this venue for anyone that has a small group and would like an awesome experience."

  • "This is always a wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion. Watching the chefs' prepare the food in a hot grill is wonderful. But I think Benihana's has lost it's magic. The chef's are too robotic now. The skills are not spectacular. They have become humdrum. Thankfully I only go once a year."

  • "We were celebrating our grandson's birthday, and he really enjoyed the chef cooking at the table! The food was very good, and we made a reservation so we did not have to wait. If you don't make a reservation, the wait can be long. Always enjoy eating at this restaurant!"

  • "I love Benihana but this visit was disappointing ! I made a reservation for 3 at 6:30 and 1 member of our party was in the parking lot looking for parking so they wouldn't seat us. ( there was very limited parking she had to wait for someone to leave to park her car). Even with out reservation we had to wait. We waited about 40 minutes before asking if we could just sit at the booth. We were able to sit at the booth right away but no one came to our table for 20 minutes! When we did get our food our rice was over cooked and the server forgot my sushi order."

  • "I made reservations for a party of ten we were seated within 5 min. Our server was amazing and nice. Our chef was equally amazing and nice. I came with friends and for about half of them it was their first time at Benihana so I was nervous at first. But they loved it and cannot wait it come back. Me and my group had a great time and can not wait to come back again."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "It was kind of disappointing this time. My "chef special" tuna was over cooked and instead of the regular 1.5 to 2 hours it took 2.5 hours just to dine. We had reservations and were seated 15 minutes late. The chef we had was new & did a pretty good job entertaining but food went everywhere!"
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "The food and atmosphere was okay. I was out celebrating the birthdays of myself and my 2 children and it didn't seem that spectacular compared to prior visits. I think it was due to our arrival time."

  • "Our service was Awesome the server was engaging name started with a D, Our chef Will was Amazing! ! The first time in all out visits the food was cooked to perfection tender and moist. Will did a great job!! Manager's were visible. Kim always take great care of our family. Thanks for making my son's birthday special! !"

  • "tuna steak was perfectly cooked until the chef put the hot vegetable on top of it which overcooked the tuna"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The food was not as flavorful as my birthday event on January 27th. There was another family at the table with us that spoke Spanish and Engilsh. The cook spoke to the family in Spanish only, when the family spoke English. This is rude to me and unnecessary. Ambience was nice and weightstaff was great."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "We were there to celebrate birthdays. Cooking at the table was fun. Our 2 yr old niece was captivated by the chef. Fun for everyone."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "The "show" that the chefs give to the people might vary. The chef must be energetic and full of live, if he doesn't like his job, the customers can sense it. People might not come back if the chef doesn't treat them friendly, which is sad because its actually a good place to eat."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The service and server was bad. Food took forever to come out and when it did the steak ame out before the chicken which took another 15-20 minutes how does chicken take longer to cook then steak?"
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "We had poor service the cook barely listened. Threw food all across grill did not interact with guest. Waitress including had to many tables and the place was not even crowded. This is not what I expected from them."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Parking is horrible. Service was slow for drinks and additions to order with the waitress or she just forgot it all together. Chef was decent but rushed and not prepared with all the cooking supplies. Heat stopped working in the room we were in and it got so cold we ate with our coats on."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Our cook, Carlos, was very entertaining and the food was very good. "Di" our server was very lacking. We had to ask for things a couple of times before he finally brought them. Once our table was served our food, he forgot about us and moved on to the next table. Our bills to be re-done (Di forgot to take off the gift certificates for the birthday people). We asked three times for extra spoons to share the ice cream and never got them. I would recommend this restaurant because the food is good (hence the "good overall rating:) Restaurant was packed and it was a Thursday night, so it is a good place. A different server would've made it even better."

  • "I decided to give this location a try again after 2 previous occasions of poor service. The server was very disinterested including the manager."

  • "The sushi here is very good, staff is pleasant and accommodating to your requests. if you are do the hibachi grill the food is excellent, but your group needs to include 8 people or you end up sitting with people you don't know…somewhat uncomfortable for private conversations. I would highly recommend for a family night out or large group of friends."

  • "I was serve raw chicken and the salad dressing was not fresh. I eat at the Dearborn location and they have much better food and service. This location needs better training on their chefs. You should never be serve raw food of any kind"

  • "My husband and I went for our fifth anniversary. I had been to a hibachi grill before but he never had, and it was a lovely experience for both of us. The food was wonderful and the service was good. However, we were the only ones at our table getting white rice instead of fried rice (definitely a mistake, get the fried rice!) and they forgot to bring our rice to us."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "I usually don't try these kinds of restaurants because I don't eat fish; however, I got a gift card to Benihana's so we decided to try it. I was pleasantly surprised to find out they had steak and chicken. So, that's what we ordered. It was a special for two. It took a little while for the food to come out, but it was very tasty and we thoroughly enjoyed it."

  • "I have been dining at Benihana's for years. This is the 3rd time within 6 months that the service and food have been poor. Waited over an hour for the cook. The server was not friendly and couldn't even bring "equal" to the table. The chef burned the food, the grill was burned and smoking with food residue you couldn't breathe. Arrived at 2:30pm for a reservation didn't get seated until 3pm and the chef didn't arrive to begin dinner until after 4pm when we complained. There are a few other Japanese Steak houses in the area that we will patronize. The Farmington and Troy locations have poor service."
