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
  • "It had been a while since I dined here and was surprised at the changes. They now pack people in and serve simple fare for inflated prices. It used to be entertaining how the chefs would deftly handle the cutlery and perform a routine - now they do a few simple forms (hearts, Mickey Mouse) with the rice as they are cooking it and that's it. The food is tabletop cooked in light oil and spices so it is nothing complicated. From the time we were seated until the broth (not soup - just broth) was served was over 40 minutes. As we remember the way Benihana used to be, we all agreed it is no longer worth the time, effort and money. There are too many other good restaurants to go to."

  • "My friend took me to Benihana's for the first time. I am not usually a fan of Japanese or Chinese food but this was delicious, I ate it for the next 2 days and plan on returning soon. I had the steak shrimp vegetables and brown rice, truly amazing!"

  • "I always have a wonderful experience as I did this time but my server was horrible and needs to be retrained or put back as a hostess. Server forgot to turn on the grill so when chef Carlos came with the cart he could not start. I asked for lemons & extra fried onions for my soup and I never got either. Another party at my table ordered the EXACT same Sushi item as myself and mines came almost 10 minutes later. The server never came to take empty the plates and bowls from table. The chef himself removed plates and bowls from the table. Server did not attempt to remove any plates until after the food was prepared."

  • "I Had Made Reservations For 1:00 To Celebrate My Sons Birthday. We Didn't Even Get Seated To A Table Until 1:45! That Was Ridiculous And Absurd! What Is The Purpose Of Even Making Reservations If They Mean Absolutely Nothing??.We Will Not Be Returning To This Location Ever!"

  • "Food and service were good, only thing that was a bother was that a head reservations at 7:30, but didn't get day until 8:15."

  • "Sushi bar casual dining area looks like a Denny's. Lots of red vinyl seating and a not much in the way of nice decor. When I spend over $100 on dinner for two, it seems like a better experience is in order. We decided to eat a little sushi and order hibachi while dining in this area. Drinks were tasty (but pricey) The Edamame that we ordered immediately upon sitting down didn't come out until our food was delivered. My wife wanted vegetables. She was thinking they would be hibachi cooked, but the meal came out steamed. Looked disgusting. It is what the menu described so it was our fault. Interestingly, The wait staff never even asked her why she didn't even eat one bit of it. They didn't seem to care."

  • "Everything was great, especially the service. Only negative in our opinion was the high price for wine by the glass."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Since one has to be seated at a hibachi table with other people, best to dine in a group of 6-8, and for a special occasion."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We've been there before and it was very nice. This time we were very disappointed. Our chef didn't put on a show. Even McDonalds is more impressive. She just cooked. Wasn't the place for our special occasion. Ginji Japanese Steakhouse in Novi Michigan was so much nicer. Their Chefs knew how to make it interesting and unforgettable. The best Japanese Steakhouse ever is Sekura in Toledo, Ohio."

  • "Made reservations & didn't have to wait over 5 mins. The food was great as well as the food. Took the kids as well & they really enjoyed watching the cook flip knives and make the onion volcano. Really had a great night"

  • "Bring enough people to fill a table because I had a table with kids whose parents weren't watching them other than that chef and good and ambiance was awesome.Just minus the kids it was amazing"

  • "My husband made reservations for us for my birthday. It was both of our first time, but I had heard good things about the food, especially the sushi and we were not disappointed. The staff were very accommodating and the food was delicious! We definitely got our money's worth even with the $30 coupon I used towards my meal."

  • "Don't bother making reservations - better yet, don't waste your time on this trashy establishment.I made reservations for 7pm.At 730pm my husband went to check on our table and was rudely told that they were still getting it ready.He went back and sat down, when the manager informed him that,"Even if you have a reservation, it could take 1 - 1.5 hours".Then asked him very rudely,"What do you expect me to do, kick people out of their tables?"After reading other reviews, it is apparent that he doesn't know what having a reservation entails. Oh, another tip, speaking to my husband or anyone in my party in the tone he used and the way he chose to address their obvious mistake in scheduling, will absolutely make me leave. We won't be back."

  • "My family and I usually like this restaurant but it was horrible this time! It was father's day and we arrived 15 minutes early. When seated we didn't even get a chance to look at the menu before the waitress expected us to order, and we had to ask her 3 times to bring our kid's food. My husband ordered his steak medium and it was cold and raw inside but the cook had cleaned up and left before he could say anything. Also we had barely started eating before our waitress brought out boxes for leftovers. Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure this is the last time we will eat here."

  • "Compared to another resterount in Canton on Ford rd. It is over priced! I could have paid for two more meals at the price I paid here."

  • "We had such a great time at Benihana in Farmington that we want to take all of our family back there! We look forward to experiencing this with our daughter - I think she will be entertained by our chef just like we were. The food was awesome. It was a very friendly atmosphere from the time we walked in to the time we left."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We have had dinner at this location several times over the past 4 years and this time some notable things have found us looking for a new Japanese Steakhouse. First, the ambiance leaves something to be desired. A bit more authenticity would be nice, especially in the Chef department. Secondly, although our Chef was okay, he used an amazing amount of butter in every item and then seasoned it heavily with salt and pepper. Having dined at several other of these types of establishments around the country, I have never seen so much drowning of the food."

  • "Not was the service great, we had an amazing chief, awesome food and wonderful people seated with us as well!"

  • "The food was very good and the habachi chef was very entertaining and made the dining experience fun. The chef and management were very attentive to those with seafood allergies and made sure proper precautions were taken without diminishing the dining experience of others."

  • "My date and I were going to prom and decided to splurge with this place. They ended up taking over an hour just to seat us and find a chef to cook. We ended up not even eating our food because we were so late. And then they didn't even apologize for the inconvenience."

  • "My husband and I love going to Benihana. We have been there about 5 times. Every time we have gone, the staff has always been friendly and efficient. The chefs are incredible. The food is amazing, I love it all but I swear, I could live off of the chicken fried rice!!!! We have also been fortunate in the other diners we were seated with. We have enjoyed some great meals with some really fun and friendly strangers! "
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "Our chef was way more interested in speaking Japanese to the Japanese family seated at our table than speaking to us as English speaking Americans. This country is good enough for him to work in and earn money but not good enough to NOT show ethnic bias. We frequent this restaurant about 1 time every 4 to 6 weeks but, I was very disappointed with this visit. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "The service was extremely slow the Thursday evening that we were there. We complained to the manager and he graciously gave us a percentage off our bill for the inconvience. "

  • "Slow food and lackluster service. Half of the food came out 45-60 minutes late, but was very good. The server was absentee, and not very good at communicating. "

  • "We go here twice a year for our birthdays and throughout the year for drinks and sushi. I've never had a bad experience with the food, staff or cook. We've only had bad experiences with the people sitting across from us. So, I definitely recommend the restaurant, and highly recommend trying something outside of your comfort zone. "

  • "The service is really good and waiters and the chief who cooks in front of us are very friendly. Food tastes great and they attend to all our needs. The spicy tofu I had was superb and the spicy hibachi chicken is my next favorite. "

  • "I really don't mind sharing the grill/table with other couples or families but when my drink is in the person next to me eating plate it's a little too close to enjoy the meal. But as always Benihana food is amazing! Garlic butter should be a food group! Will be back soon!"

  • "We had a 7:00 reservation and arrived on time. We were told they were a little behind and it would be 15 minutes. After 40 minutes we asked how much longer and our name was no longer on their list. Ugh! They did offer us a free appetizer for the mistake. Then when it was time for the chef to start cooking our food the table top was not turned on and we had to wait another 15 minutes for it to hear up. My kids and I were so hungry and upset that we wanted to leave. When the food was cooked it was good but too many mistakes. We didn't leave till 10 pm. A 3 hour dinner was not how I wanted to spend my Mother's Day."
