Benihana - Orlando - International Drive
Dinner was wonderfulThe staff did a great job, I do wish the other guest at our table knew how to behave and they were most disruptive and demanding as a result, the chief had to cater to their needs and was interrupted more time then I care to think about. However, we will go back and the food was wonderful6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMJust the best of everythingBenihana is just the very best. The chefs are very skilled and not only cook but entertain and make it fun while cooking. What you see is what you get and where else is that possible. If you haven't been, don't hesitate to make it a point to go your next time out. You will love it like all the rest of us who have already dined in this wonderful restaurant.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific hibachiBenihana never disappoints...it's the best hibachi I've ever had, and I've been eating it for years. Great location, Terrific experience.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat nightWe had a great time on vacation at Benihana. The staff was so friendly and our waitress Ericka was great. Really enjoyed it.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent foodThe food was excellent & our chef, Harvey, did a great job. The only thing we were not happy with is that the server asked us at the beginning if we wanted chicken fried rice. We were never informed beforehand that there is an upcharge of $3.25 per person. It may have influenced our decision if we had known. I feel the server should disclose that when we order to prevent any confusion when the check comes.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMI absolutely enjoyed my visit.I absolutely enjoyed my visit. It was my birthday dinner and I had a blast with my family. The waiter and the chef were the best!! Very friendly!5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat meal at BenihanaWe had a reservation so we were seated promptly. Everything was very smooth. The food was excellent, as was the service.

We will return.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat atmosphereLove the tricks and food was great very fulfilling5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMfun for kidsWe had a great time that the kids enjoyed. Better than most other similiar places as they also have a good wine selection.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFor groupsI wanted a romantic dinner with my boyfriend, but was sat at a table with three other adults and two children. It was very entertaining and I did not mind the extra company, but the dinner was far from a romantic dinner for two. The food was fabulous and the service was outstanding. I would recommend coming here with a group of friends for an entertaining dinner.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFun for allAfter a day in the park, what a nice way to unwind yet still be energized. Being seated with another family was so much fun. We conversed and joked and made acquaintances from somewhere else. Definitely planning to retun next time we're in Orlando.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAbove averageEat here once a month, this was not the best we have had here but better then any other.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMYeahhh perfect for the occasionIt was my dads birthday and we had a nice group that attended our chef was good even got me different rice, joked with my uncle about ketchup and no they don't have none needed. Quality of food was good, wish we had extra they unfortunately don't do the fire volcano and surprisingly no noodles ;( however we did receive a free photo copy for each at table and ice cream ( the dessert menu limit was hoping for fried ice cream) instead we had pineapple boat which was fresh and juicy.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGood ResturantI took my wife here for her birthday. Food, chef and environment was all good. Only downfall had a bad waiter. We made reference that we were there for my wife's birthday he then asked if she had a chef certificate. She said no, he didn't even explain what it was. He took a long time getting anything you asked for and made weird responses to customers questions (other couples not just us) around the table. Over all its a good nice restaurant exactly what you'd expect we just happen to get a bad waiter.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome experienceGreat atmosphere, well prepared delicious food, showmanship, great drinks and warm hospitality!

Very good wait staff and they chef presentation was wonderful!!!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAtmosphere different in FloridaThe food is good at this Benihana but they don't have the same shrimp sauce that the Benihana in Minnesota has. That sauce is much better. Also, the Golden Valley location has a much better atmosphere than this location. This one feels to chaotic and the lights are too bright for the ambience.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great first time experience!Had a great first time experience!

Our server was knowledgeable and friendly. Our table chef was excellent! He was funny and engaged the kids in the dining experience. He kept the entire table involved during his excellent chopping, slicing and dicing techniques. My kids said that was the best steak they have ever had! We were visiting Orlando and will make sure to return next time we are in town.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great dinner with myHad a great dinner with my son. Very accommodating to my four year old.

Enjoyed so much their first experience there!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best in food and fun bar none!Service, chef and food were excellent. It was a birthday celebration for my fiancee and myself (he is March 10th, I am March 20th) and though his order was incomplete (he ordered the steak, chicken and colossal shrimp trio) he never received the colossal shrimp; just the shrimp that came with the appetizer. However the excellent management team quickly remedied the situation with an additional discount for the oversight. It was my first time to Benihana's and we both completely enjoyed ourselves. You have an excellent staff, great food and two more lifetime customers.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMStandard Benihana quality.Standard Benihana quality. Good food, decent price. Great atmosphere3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMcelebrationIt is a great place to celebrate, whether anniversary or birthdays. The restaurant is beautiful.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMTop notch Japanese TeppanyakiTop notch Japanese Teppanyaki experience. Benihana uses top quality cuts of beef and higher quality ingredients than the other similar Japanese steak houses. It is absolutely delicious. This particular location gets very busy so dine early or late because between 6:30 and 8:30 it is slammed. The menu has a more creative and extensive selection than your average Teppanyaki restaurant. Benihana is #1 in my book.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOrlando Benihana is one ofOrlando Benihana is one of the best Benihana restaurants. Our "chef", Nolan, was terrific. Our group included a seven year-old and Nolan made his participation part of the program.
We recommend Benihana though be sure and make reservations - the wait can be very long.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI love it!! Worth every penny.I love it!! Worth every penny.

The overall experience was wonderful.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for entertaining group dinnerThe cooks and servers at Benihana provided us with a very entertaining dinner! Service was very attentive, for example your drink was refilled before you ever had the chance to ask. Additionally, all of the staff was friendly and welcoming. The only downside was that the food was on the bland side, a surprise for hibachi. I was happy to see that our chef paid extra attention to he child at our table, seeing to it she had a great time and making sure she her food was to a child's liking.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe come here often, the foodWe come here often, the food is great and it is a good value. Excellent service with entertaining chefs.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat time, good food. ThisGreat time, good food. This was my first time visiting and I was concerned about it living up to all the hype but that was not an issue. We did change our reservation though OpenTable but it didn't show up at the restaurant so we had quite a bit of a wait. We sat at the bar though and had some apps and some drinks. It was happy hour which last until 8pm so the prices were reasonable. The hibachi was great particularly the fried rice, I think that was the highlight of the meal. Also the vegetables were very fresh which was a pleasant surprise. Overall the meal was great and I would go again should I come back to the area.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMwe make it our business towe make it our business to visit this gem of a restaurant everytime we are in orlando excellent chefs and food3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food, great service.6 of us had a great meal, as always at Benihana. Dined here several times and alway excelent food..just wish people wouldn't bring babies in High chairs to this type of resturant. Spoils the ambiance alittle when they start crying all through the meal, or perhaaps Benihana's should re=arange the setting , so as to have a 'quieter side for ' non Family Adults..but still great food and great service1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
