A word from Benihana - Maple Grove
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!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday lunch at Benihana. The chef's performance was, as usual, outstanding, the food was perfect, and our server was the best! And we love the lower prices at lunch!

    I have been to this restaurant several times before with no complaints, but this experience was far below their usual standards. I do not know if it was a new server, or what the issue was, but it was almost an hour before we had any food after being seated at our table. That has never happened before to me at this restaurant, so I do not consider it a deterrent for me going again. I hope in the future it will not happen again, otherwise I will have to consider a different restaurant.

    We go to Benihana for all major celebrations, so we know it well. On Nov5, we had a problem where the smoke from the food was in our faces the entire evening. We didn't want to ruin the experience for the other guests, so we said nothing. We constantly moved to try to avoid the smoke, but it was a struggle. It did ruin what was otherwise a perfect evening. I'd only suggest the sercers/chefs /managers be more aware of that potential situation and monitor their ventilation systems more closely. Thank you. Gary Giesen

    Went for birthday. Made a reservation and still had to wait for 20 minutes past reservation time. Hostess forgot to give us menus. The table didn't seem very clean. Nor did the dishes. Probably won't go back.

    My husband and I love to go to Benihana's! For how much food you get and see a show the price is well worth it. If you don't go in a large group they do seat you with others which can be good or bad depending on the company. Overall great fun place, different then your average dining experience.

    We love Benihana. It's usually a special treat for a family members birthday when we all get together to go. Mostly because we are members of the chef table and love to use our birthday vouchers.

    We've eaten at Benihana for dinner many many times and it's been wonderful. This time they squeezed us in during lunch even though we had a dinner reservation. The wait staff were terrible and our food was all wrong because they thought we ordered from the lunch menu but really we ordered from the dinner menu. The chef did not do a fun display at the table either. It was my fiancé's birthday but it was very disappointing.

    Dined on 10/4/2014
    It was ok... I think that I like Fugis in St. Cloud and I thought Benihanas would be a step up from it by instead was a step down. The chef did not very well entertain, the hostess was awkward, and everyone at the table was just weird and didn't seem to appreciate anything. All food was good except for the salad. Always like to try something new but that salad was not good..way too much ginger. It was like a soup. Not a good expeirence

    The food was delicious and the cook was fantastic. But, the server could have let me know that it was pointless to order a chicken a la carte instead of getting a kid meal because the chicken coat more then a kid meal. A restaurant manager in my own personal business I would have let the customer know

    The chef was not into his job at all. His behavior was as if he preferred not to be there at all. He did not interact with our group or the other group that sat at the table with us. He didn't do any of the cooking tricks done by the other chefs such as the heart.
