A word from Benihana - Maple Grove
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

Diner Reviews
  • "The server was great. However, the cook wasn't entertaining, tentative and forgot my order(after went around table and confirmed). I noticed how another person at the table received all the shrimp entrée. .. enough for 2 people. When asked about my shrimp while everyone is eating, the cook had to find someone to bring more shrimp since he screwed up! During this time my other food got cold. This isn't my first time at Benihanas or this location. I was very embarrassed with the service given I had brought some friends along that had never been there."

  • "I do not feel like the maple grove site has a romantic feel to it. Felt more like a warehouse You have great food and great service - just need to give a new mood setting and more romantic feel because I feel for the prices that we would only go there for special occasions so you want a better cozy feeling"

  • "We had four adults and three children (ages 2 to 7). It was a fun family night and Benihana's knows how to entertain kids and make recommendations on what to order for them. While it can be expensive for kids, it was a memory my 4 year old will never forget!"

  • "I made reservations to take my wife and daughter out to dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday! The service was great, the chef was fantastic and the food was very good as well. The Chef was very entertaining throughout the meal. This was my daughters first experience watching a chef cook at the table and she had a blast. I would recomend Bennihana to anyone. We will dine at Bennihana again in the future!"

  • "I was looking forward to sharing the hibachi expierence for the first time with my daughters. Our reservation was for 1:30, we were not seated unitl 1:45. Another 10 minutes for the waitress. After ordering it took another 15-20 minutes for the chef to start. The waitress didn't get our order right. My water glass was empty when the chef started cooking, waitress didn't refill it until she brought the check."

  • "This is the first time that I have eaten at Benihana & been disappointed. We were there celebrating my birthday & were put in a semi-booth in the back corner behind screens. There were carts lined up on our side of the screen where staff were filling things up for the next table. It felt like we were in the servants quarters eating. We found an additional chair for our table as there was no way we could fit the number of people on the bench that the plates indicated we should. The shrimp sauce is original to Benihana, & we look forward to it. Not sure what happened this particular night.. Bland, watery & oily. So disappointing as it really had no flavor at all. Wait staff and Chef were wonderful and we really enjoyed them."

  • "The food was good but the chef didn't put on a great show. We have been there many times and had a great show. The chef would talk and do tricks. That's why you sit at those tables and not in the bar. This visit wasn't like that. Glad we didn't bring the kids because they would of been upset as well. The chef made a couple of mistakes with our food."

  • "I was worried about bringing my 3 1/2 year old for the first time. She has been there before, but was in a car carrier at the time. Not much to fuss about. This time around was different. They paired us with another family with a young child and two women that clearly did not mind being seated with children. It made the experience very nice and comfortable. The child's menu seemed a bit high priced - some were as expensive as the adults. They don't eat half of it anyway. We ordered the chicken fried rice and she didn't eat it. We found out we were better off ordering the edamame (she ate all of our appetizer - WITH THE KID FRIENDLY CHOP STICKS!!)"

  • "The service was a bit slow but the chef more than made up for the the tardiness. Sam (the chef) was energetic and engaging. I dine a far amount at Benihana - usually the Golden Valley location because the service is slow at the Maple Grove location. With that said Sam was one of the best chef's I have seen."

  • "The server should have came over with suggestions so we could have all moved on with our dining experience. Also the tuna steak was a new item for myself to try, I would have loved it except the vinegar was way too powerful. Next time no vinegar! Shrimp sauce was amazing as always! Our chef seemed to be a bit crabby though."

  • "We had the BEST server! Patrick never let our beverage glasses empty before he brought us a new full glass. He was funny and made us all feel welcome. He was attentive without over doing it. He made it a great night to celebrate 2 family birthdays! The food is always good at Benihana and we were able to take a few left overs home. Patrick boxed them up for us with flair! I'm not sure if you can request a server but if you can, ask for Patrick, you won't be disappointed!"

  • "Do not allow the entry into the restaurant set you off. They have a bad system of reservations and walk-in management. The hostesses are usually okay, this particular night one was very rude and had this been my first time ever coming I would have left and never looked back. The food is great, the waiters are pretty good and lots of food."
