A word from Benihana - Ontario
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 were seated at our table within 20 mins. Very friendly waiter/Host who checked with us often to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. Chef was very entertaining and funny, the 2 kids at our table could not take their eyes off of him. The mango shrimp and salmon were cooked perfectly. A wonderful birthday celebration.

    Everything was terrific however you might want to let the chefs know that not everyone wants to "share" their meal. Our chef decided on his own to spread our individual meals around amongst our family. Some of us don't like what the others order. He was super nice and got us another steak but it was awkward.

    Not as flashy as before, they have competition. A bit dry at the table compared to the other grill spot in Rancho Cucamonga (Wabi Sabi). Good Food, you pay for the name. Maybe because it was lunch.

    the chef didn't cook as good as the previous one. He overlooked all out meats and fish and the fried rice was not as delicious as the previous time. He also had an arrogant attitude at times and was a little inappropriate with rude comments but our waiter was amazing and friendly and always helpful

    I've been here before and I don't remember tasting too much like spices. I think the cook put too much of everything on everything. I think the cool was new, he was quiet compared to other cooks I've had in the past. Not to mention in the beginning of his show, the spatula slipped out of his hand and went flying toward my 3 year old...

    We go every year for my mothers birthday. It is a drive from our house, so total trip was 4 hour experience. The cook was funny but overcooked most of my mothers meal. I made a little note of it as I don't like to pay so much and hear my guest is not happy. The manager was SO AWESOME, she came to us and made my mom happy by offering to cook her something fresh to take home. I am usually happy if my mom is and that was a definite fix for our meal. I laughed a lot and enjoyed the show. I wish I made enough money to eat here more often. Delicious!!

    Our server was a bit unattentive and we had to wait quite a while in between his visits. But he was very nice and brought us anything we needed...it was mostly at the end of our meal that we had to wait for awhile before he brought dessert, and then another wait for the check. Our chef was outstanding.

Looking on the web site for things to do in Ontario I found your restaurant listed. My daughter and her son had a wonderful experience for their first visit to Benihana. Thank you.
