A word from Benihana - Orlando - Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista
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.

Diner Reviews
  • "Having dinner at the Benihana was an experience, food, wine and service were great but the show and the service made it unforgettable."

  • "Great food. We went here instead if Japan inside Epcot because it's a better value and selection. The mixed drinks were very weak. Our server was fair, he could have used some help. The manager on duty was standing on the hallway behind our table chatting with three other servers. She should have seen he was behind in getting soup and salad out. Our chef came out same time as the salad."

  • "I highly recommend Benihana! There isn't one in our city but we drive over to Orlando every year and make it a point to go there. Our hibachi chef was named Nam and we've had him twice. We were shocked when he walked up to our table again this year. He even remembered my son! I didn't know you could request or I would have but it worked out perfectly! Food is excellent and you don't leave hungry. Remember, ice cream comes with every meal. They even have green tea ice cream! Way to go Benihana. Thank you Nam for putting on a wonderful show as usual. Don't forget to tip your chef."

  • "Took my kids while we were on vacation because they love the Hibachi experience. Chef was less than entertaining. Food was mediocre at best. Fried rice which is usually a staple, was extra $$. Veggies consisted of zucchini and onions. Cooked and serve seperately. Onions were served after all other food was done. Disappointing."

  • "We booked at short notice but had a great time there, it was a special evening for our daughter as it was her birthday. The staff and service was great, the food and cooking exhibitions was brilliant. Thanks for a very special Birthday event."

  • "We have been here before and were very disappointed, plus it was my husband's birthday, and he hadn't received it yet. The manager told us it wasn't good on Sundays. It doesn't say that when you read the information for on their club. Kobe's would have honored the fact that it was his birthday, anyway, and given him the $30 off. SUPER RIP OFF. More expensive than other places, next time I will stick with the one in Epcot. I'm a Floridian, not smart marketing for this restaurant."

  • "As always, Benihana doesn't disappoint! Great food, entertainment for the kids, excellent service! We had a party of 7 and everyone raved about the food. I am gluten-free and I'm glad that Benihana can finally accommodate me. The kids always enjoy the experience; hey they're not on their iphones during the whole dinner! I would highly recommend this Benihana (Lake Buena Vista Hilton on Disney property) whenever you are in the Orlando area. Keep in mind not all Benihana's are the same. This is one of the best!!!"

  • "Always good food and entertaining with the food being cooked in front of you. It was our daughters birthday celebration and they looked after her well with a free mug(voucher from the internet) and the whole waiting staff singing happy birthday. Ask for a free photo available at every meal which can be downloaded from the internet. Well worth a visit."

  • "Not enough food, given for the price. No order to food, rice, appetizers shrimp, dinner shrimp then we wait. Then chicken, steak, zucchini....after our plates were empty we had grilled onions. The food was bland, no seasons.Don't believe the hype, it wasn't worth $100."

  • "We had dinner at Benihana's to celebrate my daughter's birthday. The food was cooked to perfection, the show the chef put on was excellent! We've dined at many Japanese restaurants and none can top Benihana's in food, and ambience."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "The experience begins with the friendly staff that welcomes you. The serving staff is friendly and professional and the chef works up his usual magic. The food was very well done. We had some folks who had some dietary requests at the table and they easily made it for them with no issue. In other words, everyone was respected and everyone walked away very happy."

  • "Pass this restaraunt by! The "chef" did NOT know any of the "tricks" that make going to a Hibachi restaurant fun. We had a lively group of 8, and he did not interact at all. Our waitress did not come back to refill drinks all through dinner, and the food was so overcooked we left almost all of it on our plates. We spent over $270 on this disappointing experience."

  • "As a family of 6, we go here at least once a month! Just met a new chef at the Hilton Orlando location, Damian, he was fantastic! Thank you chef for a great experience!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "We chose it to celebrate Father's Day with our children ages 16 & 12. I found that even in a very expensive dining environment there are no longer any minimum requirements of the public to deminstrate the most common of courtesies to other patrons in restaurants nowadays. Unfortunately Benihana at Hilton Lake Buena Vista was no different in their handling of what I can only refer to as the longest most blatantly rude demonstration of noise tolerance ever witnessed in a public place."

  • "After my first meal at a Benihana - in The Royal York Hotel in Toronto, Canada - in August of 1982, I made an effort to seek out other locations, especially as there was not a Japanese restaurant where I lived for over 30 years. At the one at Disneyworld, you can see the wonderment in the eyes of children; the train and volcano are two favourites. The chefs know this and always get extra applause for these. The ways the eggs are treated are varied, but always somewhat magical. Our evening at the Benihana in the Hilton Buena Vista was excellent."

  • "The atmoshphere at Benihana's is always fun - thanks to the chef. The food is very good. I had steak and shrimp. The steak was done to order and the shrimp were moist."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Food was good....a little over priced in my opinion.....we took grandchildren...they weren't thrilled with the food.....I would go back, but only with adults."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We chose this restaurant because would be a fun choice for my granddaughter. The food is good. Not amazing but good. It's a lot of food. The show tht the chef makes is ok. Not as good as I remembered it to be from previous years. But is a good restaurant for a larger group. "

  • "We have been to Benihana in Orlando numerous times and never had a server who was so intense that made us feel stupid about eating at a Japanese restaurant. He kept announcing the table was hot and explained the menu as if we were unable to read. We did have other guest who spoke another language at our table but they spoke English just fine and understood everything. They even told him they had been to the restaurant before. Nothing to say bad about the food... Just an ignorant server who needs be adjusted. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Don't go here unless you would like to be forced by the staff to sit with cultures who blatantly don't like Americans. We had say down and an international family was being sat at our table. For some unknown reason they DID NOT want to sit with us and made it clearly known to staff. Staff would not sit them anywhere else. Entire meal was ruined because this family did nothing but cause scenes, disrupt our meal, judge us none stop. Glare at us the entire time and rude to the waitress. At end of the meal manager had nothing to say except he wants us to come back to have a normal experience. I will not be back! "

  • "I am a Benihana regular visit this restutant often this was the worst experience I have ever had. I also did not appreciate the fact that my kids ordered from the kids menu however there was a 3rd kid at the table whom ordered from the adult menu but the chef decided to split my kid corn 3 ways and give it to him. "

  • "We went for my wife's birthday. We took our 2 and 5 year old. The staff was very nice and responsive to our needs and the hibatchi chef kept the kids entertained. He was more engaged with them than I had expected. It was a very nice experience. The food was excellent as well. Jay was an outstanding server!"

  • " Service was poor, seated one hour after reservation; waitress waisted drinks all over herself. The chef cooked food one item at a time. He popped himself in the face with the fried rice and left the food unattended on the grill. He had no personality. This Benihana location ruined our first experience."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "I tried Benihana because I'm such a fan of Kobe steakhouse, another Hibachi restaurant around Orlando. I compared to Kobe all night, and each time, Benihana lost. Instead of Kobe's miso soup, Benihana serves a soup with fried onion strings soaking in the broth. Instead of the delicious "white sauce", Benihana has a mustard sauce that doesn't go with anything. The chicken fried rice (an upcharge of $3.50 over plain white rice) was overcooked and crunchy. And the most bizarre: the vegetables that come with the meal, onions & mushrooms, were served to each person AFTER everyone received their entree. Because you eat as your served, this meant that most of us were done with our meal before we got our veggies. I'll stick with Kobe for hibachi."

  • "Good food and fun. A mostly grown-up night out. Would have been perfect if the kids running around screaming had of been asked to settle down. Nice way to get Disney off the brain for a bit while visiting Orlando."

  • "We went for our son's birthday and informed the staff when we made our reservation. Our chef was very quiet and did not put on the show of making our meal like our neighboring tables were getting. At other tables, the wait staff sang happy birthday, but they never came to do that for our son. He was really disappointed. The food was quote bland compared to our previous experiences"

  • "Great service, fantastic drinks and the chef was entertaining. The kids really enjoyed watching their food be prepared right in front on them. On the pricey side but well worth it. "
