A word from Benihana - Orlando - International Drive
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!

Diner Reviews
  • "High quality food... and plenty of it. A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. No regrets, just a happily full-filled belly."

  • "I want Benihanna Restaurant to know specifically that "Justin the cook was OUTSTANDING, ENERGETIC, VERY PLEASANT, & A TRUE PROFESSIONAL!" I DEFINITELY would come back to this location again. I came from SF, had a blast!"

  • "Food was excellent! It is teppanyaki which is where there chef cooks on a flat griddle right in front of you. The waiters were very attentive and the chefs were very entertaining!!! We sat with a family with kids and they loved it. Restaurant was very clean and not too noisy."

  • "We had reservations and still waited to be seated. Once seated, we waited about an hour for our chef. The food was ok, I tasted better Hibachi. I expected more from this well know restaurant."

  • "My kids love watching the chef cook. No fire volcano disappointed them though, not sure if they quit doing that a while ago or not. We showed almost an hour early to our reservation and the sat us in a half an hour which was awesome. Food is standard Benihana. Meat was a little over cooked but not bad. I got the tune and asked for rare. It came out awesome, it seemed he took some extra time on mine because it was a different order. All in all it was a good experience."

  • "We were quick seated at a beautiful Habachi thing. The food was brought gradually and it was great. My biggest problem is that they didn't bring me my sushi."

  • "Poor welcome, despite booking made to wait before being seated, unfriendly host. Food was prepared enthusiastically but was dry and served in stages so some of it cold by the time we ate. Expensive for what it was. We left disappointed."

  • "We really enjoyed our server, Phi! He was very entertaining and the food was delicious! Service was excellent! We didn't feel rushed after our meal considering it was a Friday night. Would definitely recommend this restaurant while on vacation!"

  • " Great food...entertaining chef. They were overbooked so we had to wait about 40 minutes for a table even tho we had a reservation. Waiter was as attentive as he could be considering they were very busy and apparently understaffed."

  • "We would have enjoyed our experience more but we were so hot. Our table was semi-enclosed so when the grill was on, the heat had no where to travel. We were a party of 6 (4 kids) and we all left sweating. Once we got up from the table we saw how much cooler it was due to better ventilation. That was disappointing."

  • "I wish I could remember the chef name. It starts with a C and it was something like CYRO. This guy was very knowledgeable about the whole beginning to current operation of the beinhanas food chain. Food was off the chain. Great job!!!"

  • "Food was not seasoned well at all.. The chef was very sloppy, rice flying everywhere! Its a little overrated im better going off to Kobe's for a cheaper price..."

  • "Benihana Orlando was another great experience. The food was tasty, cooked to perfection. The place is kids friendly and catered to every need my two kids had. One down side though was the theatrical show which my kids were looking forward to. Our cook was either not in the mood or too exhausted but the presentation lacked the typical theatrics of Benihana (Which some diners might consider a plus, but my kids did not). Nonetheless the food was GREAT."

  • "My family of five made reservations for Benihana on I drive on Thursday July 10. We were excited to try a new Japanese Steak house as we had never been disappointed in this genre of food. Until now. The chicken fried rice was blah, the vegetables were just onions and zucchini because the party that was there with us said absolutely NO onions, they got all of the zucchini and we got only onions. The salad dressing was chunky and nothing like any ginger dressing we had ever had before. YUCK! There was no white sauce! Benihana does not offer such a thing! Noodles did not come with the meal. My husband ordered a meal that was supposed to come with dessert, however the server was quick to bring the bill and not offer to bring the ice cream."

  • "Nice alternative to Kobe. I think Kobe's food is a little better, but I like the smaller tables at Benihana. They give it a more intimate feeling."

  • "We booked a table for 2 adults and 1 child through the open table site. On the booking I told them it was our wedding anniversary and we were on holiday. On arrival the hostess on taking our names immediately wished us happy anniversary. The whole experience was great, the waiter and the chef were very nice and good fun keeping us all entertained. The food was very good and there was a lot of it. We followed the waiters recommendation and were not disappointed. Overall a great night made and I would have no hesitation in recommending it."

  • "I love hibachi style restaurants, but Benihana was amazing. Menu selection will bring us back here again real soon. Reservations helped us avoid the LONG wait!"

  • "I really enjoyed Benihana Orlando with my family this week. We all had something different from Ocean Treasure, Rocky's Steak, and seafood diablo which were all delicious. Everything was cooked perfectly and you can't get it any hotter than from grill to plate instantly. Always a pleasure having dinner at any Benihana."

  • "Any Japanese hibachi restaurant will provide you with great food and entertainment, and Benihana is no different in that regard. However, this is not the place to go for an "intimate" night out. A college friend and her husband came to visit so the evening was a couples double date but occasionally it was difficult to catch up as we were constantly interrupted during our dinner conversation... Server, hibachi chef, happy birthday celebrations, etc... Great family restaurant, but I'll likely look somewhere else when it comes to an "adults" night out so we can actually have a conversation."

  • "Family enjoy !!!! Kids love the Chef doing malabarism with the food."

  • "I made a reservation for 7:30 pm for 6 people and arrived exactly at 7:30. We were not seated until 8:00 pm. Finally had to get the manager involved to get seated. The receptionists are much more into their chit-chat and not into taking care of the clients. The manager was not decisive at all and was obviously at the mercy of his underlings. There are much better choices for dinner in Orlando and certainly other restaurants that honor the reservations that their clients make. AVOID THIS RESTAURANT until new management is put in place."
