A word from Benihana - Orlando - International Drive
Prepare for a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Listen as razor-sharp blades slice through tender steak and juicy chicken. Take in the aroma of sizzling shrimp, lobster and savory vegetables.

Or visit our sushi bar, where your sushi chef will prepare fresh nigiri, sashimi and specialty rolls, all with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine.

Ken the chef made the night one to remember with his knife and cooking skills and ensured all age groups were involved.He and The bar tender Romeo are a credit to your team.We last visited in 2012 during the our vacation and the experience has not diminished.Well done and hope to see you all again very soon."

  • "This was my first time dining here. I was previously giving great reviews on the food and decided to try it for myself. At first it wasn't what I thought it was going to be but as it turned out the experience was awesome. I only wish the white sauce was sweeter as in other restaurants."

  • "Service was awesome. Short time to wait for seating. Chef was good with cooking & talking with everyone at the table. Wish he did a better job with the volcano at the end"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "This is the second time we have been to this location and the second time we have had the worst chef ever. I feel terrible writing a bad review but this chef has zero personality. You cannot hear a single word he says. It was disappointing, as half of our party had never been to a Beninhan before. Needless to say when I go back to this location I will ensure I request we do not have Harvey as our chef."
    Dined on 3/27/2014

  • "I was seconds away from walking out and abandoning my 830 reservation because of a rude and unhelpful hostess staff. Thankfully I stuck it out, because the chef we had the name of Cyril was by far one of the best chefs I've ever had the pleasure of watching work. The food was delicious, and he was very entertaining for me and the four little ones we had with us."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Really tasty food. I got the lobster and filet and everything just melted in my mouth. Really great experience all around!"

  • "Great time! Axel was our chef and he was engaging, energetic, and kept our 6 year old captivated by the culinary show. The food was very good. It was the atmosphere, service and interactive staff that made it special! Thank you Axel and the Benihana Orlando international drive team! It was the perfect farewell dinner to an outstanding spring break week!"

  • "This a wonderful restaurant if you want to see something different. Here the chef will cook in front of you. It's amazing his ability with the hands. Good to glue kid's attention out of the electronic devices. The only exceptions are to the smell in your cloths when you're out, and the table that you have to share with other parties if you're not 10 people."

  • "We have been here a few times and always have a great experience. I love the Châteaubriand. They are one of the few restaurants who offer this cut."

  • "Nice place to eat. The Chef is a complete entertainer, full of magic tricks. Food is good, but you get all the smoke in your clothes. Not romantic, but it is funny."

  • "We enjoyed our visit to Benihana Orlando during our week long stay in Orlando. The prices were fair (comparable to hibachi restaurants in our home state), the service was great, and the food was yummy! Would definitely recommend this restaurant to vacationers and will look forward to returning again. Waitstaff suggested signing up for their birthday club to receive a $30 off coupon valid for the entire month of one's birthday."

  • "From the time we arrived, to the time we left, Benihana was a phenomenal experience! The server was super nice, the chef was hilarious and provided quality entertainment! The food was great, and the restaurant even sang a Japanese "happy song" to myself and another guest at our table because we had survived a half marathon that day! What an awesome way to end the day! I had way more food than I could eat, which meant yummy lunch the next day! If you have a group, or are just looking for a fun time, I highly recommend Benihana!"

  • "It was the first time for us to go to Benihana, a coworker recommended me the restaurant to go with my husband. So, I decided to make a reservation for Valentines Day. The only thing they should correct in the website it is the address because if you don't live or know the zone, you will get lost due that the GPS send you to another area. I had to call to the restaurant because of that and they gave me another address but the GPS still sending us to another place, fortunately we saw the restaurant. Due to that inconvenience we were late for our dinner reservation, but the customer service made us feel comfortable and relaxed at the dinner time."

  • "The ambience and food were not so especial ... the restaurant was noisy and the food was fair. The prices were high considering the food, ambience and service provided."

  • "Amy was very attentive taking our dinner order and getting our beverages. She explained the menu in detail. She was very welcoming. A true professional. Axel was our personal chef. He is very skilled and very conversational with my family. He is entertaining. A true professional. This is our 3rd time back to Benihana Orlando on International Drive. We reside in New York so we do not get back to Orlando often. We were celebrating our granddaughters 5th birthday this visit. She loves this place. Everyone from the hostess to the manager who stopped by our table make you feel special."

  • "Does not live up to the hype. They cannot do "fire tricks" and their food was just ok. I have been to better hibachi restaurants. Nothing special."

  • "Drove up from Palm Beach and rather than cooking in our vacation rental, took advantage of our open table reservation, and had a great meal with our group of 9 including 3 kids. Good for parents whose pickiness was accomodated and attention was maintained for at least an hour or so as the chef cooked for us. Parents enjoyed the steak, shrimp veggies and rice. Would suggest sticking with steak over chicken.. Tappan grilled chicken just doesn't quite work."
