A word from Benihana - Indianapolis
Prepare for a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Listen as razor-sharp blades slice through tender steak and juicy chicken. Take in the aroma of sizzling shrimp, lobster and savory vegetables.

Or visit our sushi bar, where your sushi chef will prepare fresh nigiri, sashimi and specialty rolls, all with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine.Continued

  • "Entertaining meal with chefs cooking Japanese hibachi style table side at large tables for 8 friends or other guests. Each entree includes salad, soup, rice, shrimp, and zucchini and onion vegetables. I enjoyed the hibachi scallops and fried tofu appetizer and fried rice. They offer ginger, cream/mustard and yum yum sauces for dipping and I also had teriyaki sauce for the tofu. The sauces make the meal! Benihana is a great place to celebrate a special occasion. It is also great for kids because they are entertained by the chef...so much for them to watch. Benihana also has a great sushi menu. Would highly recommend.. it is a bit pricey..however well worth it!"

  • "We enjoy this restaurant for special occasions. They not only treat their guests well, but their entertaining and the food is great. Where else can you get a steak that is pre-cut into bite sizes for you. Many feel the prices are high, but remember your paying for more than just the meal."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "At one point, Benihana Indianapolis was an excellent restaurant, however the chef we had was, in my opinion, boring (mechanical, unenthusiastic, and not creative performance) and the food, in my personal opinion, was not properly prepared (specifically the vegetables are overcooked and improperly seasoned). The servers are still very good and the restaurant appears fairly clean."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "We had a much better time than our last few visits. Our servers actually allowed us to enjoy each course, and for the first time in awhile, we didn't feel rushed through our meal."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Everytime we are in the area, we make an effort to stop at Benihana! For the price, the quality of the food, and the service, you just can't beat it."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Food was very good and our chef was good. Price of fried rice was way to much. Should be covered in the price of the meal."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Took our family of 6 to Benihana for the first time to celebrate Father's Day. The food was great and the staff was friendly and attentive. The chef cooking in front of the kids kept them entertained while we waited for our food to cook. Overall it was a great experience and we will visit again."

  • "Third time dining at the Indianapolis Beni Hana. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. I know that the chefs are very talented and skilled, but there isn't much diversity in the show that is performed while preparing the meal. This makes for a not-so exciting environment for returning customers. Not sure if much can be done to help that, but just wanted to note the observation."

  • "Love love love Benihanas! Such a great place to dine! Food and service is fantastic!"
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Their happy hour is exclusive to their sushi bar (we were at the grills), and birthday celebrations are quite loud, but otherwise they have everything good you'd expect from a hibachi restaurant. The calamari option was our personal favorite, and the fried rice was very good."
    Dined on 5/27/2014

  • "I've been going to Benihana for decades... We used to celebrate my birthday and my brother's there when we were little. Now, I'm taking my own kids. They love watching the food being cooked in front of them, and love the food when it's done. That said, if you're celebrating a birthday, you're going to want to remind them several times. The servers forget...it's happened to us 2x now! Other than that, it's a fun time."

  • "My husband and I took our family for Mother's Day. We had a party of 7 that included two younger childeren (7&9). Our chef was very entertaining and kept the kids attention during the whole dinner. The food and service were both great. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We had a party of 8 for Mother's Day. We were enthusiastically greeted when we arrived and were immediately seated. Both our Attendant and Chef were excellent throughout our visit. The Manager made us feel welcome and thanked us for dining with them. The complimentary ice cream was a welcome surprise. This is our 3rd visit to this particular Benihana Restaurant with 6 or more guests and based on each experience, I would recommend it to anyone for steak, seafood and chicken prepared just right."

  • "We've been dining at Benihan for years and I am still impressed with the food and experience!"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "The food is excellent, but the service was quite a low point in the evening. The cook was not very good at amazing us with his culinary tricks like other Japanese restaurants. We also felt pressured to do everything quick throughout the supper. Some other client was celebrating his birthday and the staff came to sing the birthday song but everything was rushed and we could not ear anything they were saying. Quite the deception!!!"

  • "Benihana is one of those places to go if you are out to have a fun entertaining dinner. The food is always great. Jose is the best chef in the place. He always teases and jokes the little ones at the table to be sure they are having a good time. The servers are sweet and prompt to fill your drink and make the experience all the more fun. "

  • "Our anniversary evening with friends was the outstanding experience that we've come to expect at Benihana. Steak and seafood on the hibachi has turned into our favorite way to have it prepared. I could eat the fried rice every day!"

  • "My Birthday celebration was a very good one! The food was excellent. It was not my first time at a Benihana restaurant because of going to one in the downtown Chicago, IL area. However, it was my husband and daughter's first time at Benihana. We enjoyed the food and the entertainment by the Chef. Even though, you do not know the individuals who may be sitting with your group, the experience is always enjoyable as it was at the Indianapolis, IN restaurant. The manager at the restaurant was very accommodating, and I enjoyed the fact that I celebrated my birthday there with my family there."

  • " Our soon to be 7 year old picked Benihana in Indianapolis based on a video post he viewed for his birthday. We had prompt and attentive service. My husband and I along with our 9 and 7 yr old boys thought the food was delicious (between all of us we had filet mignon, chicken, shrimp and steak with chicken fried rice. Our waitress was fantastic with the boys by spending time with them on how to use chop sticks, letting them order their meals and making our youngest feel special. The presentation was perfect for my husband and I , but would have liked to have seen more flair for the kids. The picture at the end of our meal was a surprise bonus. The drinks were a little pricey but overall worth the expense. Definitely would revisit."
