A word from Benihana - Indianapolis
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!

  • "Was a fun time. Went for my daughters birthday and we enjoyed ourselves. The cook as fun and kept the kids entertained! Thanks for that. The people that took away plates and brought drinks were on their game as well."

  • "The food is great and the chefs are very entertaining if they are not tired I just don't like that you are seated with strangers, they are not kid friendly, everything they do is a rush and the place need to be updated"

  • "We have eaten at this Bennihanna a number of times and usually enjoy it. This visit our service was horrible and ruined the dinner. For the kind of money they charge the least I expect is competent service."
    Dined on 8/21/2014
  • "We eat there whenever we can. It's great to get The Chef's gift certificate for birthdays. No other place does this. The only bad thing this dinner was the chef forgot my step-dads fried rice. When the chef told a server, she brought him one and then charged for it. I was a little flustered. The manager took care of it right away."

  • "Always a great experience at Indianapolis Benihana. Food and service are always excellent. I can tell it is a great place because many of the staff have been there a very very long time and turnover is low."

  • "I must say giving that $30.00 coupon for the birthday person makes it desirable for families on a budget!!"

  • "Well it seems Benihana has gone the way of the small teppan grill shop. You should no longer expect a Japanese chef, a good show or food prepared with flair! The chef was nice but the food came out "PRE CUT" and very little skill was needed. and as for any heat to the food, The use of fire has gone and replaced with steam and a annoying choo-choo whistle. the sauces were bland and runny. the food was under seasoned. I asked for Japanese BBQ steak and got runny maple syrup with soy sauce. I will not be returning to Benihana again. My local Japanese Steak House is just as good if not better for 30% less."

  • "My fiancé and I went here to celebrate my birthday. Not only do they offer an amazing deal for a birthday meal if you are signed up for their club, but they truly do not disappoint. Our server was very friendly and attentive, and our chef was a very good entertainer with a nice sense of humor that kept the whole table pleased. The food was amazing and cooked just to the standards we had expected. I highly recommend Benihana to anyone looking for a great meal as well as a fun experience."

  • "Ronaldo is the best chef! I would recommend him to anyone. The diablo sauce is very hot! Service was great too!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "I guess it's a special skill flipping shrimp tails into your hat/pocket and making volcano onion rings. It's a standard formula repeated a thousand times in a hundred Benihana's across the country. The chef has a very hard time not looking bored with the whole experience. I really like sitting around with strangers, sometimes you get lucky and your table companions are awesome. About the food - I love this cuisine, but it can be vastly different from city to city. This time we had tuna steak and seafood diablo - my diablo was perfect, her tuna steak got overcooked after slicing."

    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • " The food was terrific and I left feeling very satisfied...and full! I did feel as if the experience was a little rushed, for the waitresses assisting the Chef took our orders quickly, removed plates as soon as we were finished, and brought the bill without asking if we wanted anything else."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
