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.

  • "Our chef was great, our server was amazing, and our food was outstanding! Will be going back without question. Great place for an entertaining meal."

  • "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."

  • "The eel and sushi were excellent. The cook was pretty good with his presentation and very funny. If you are not too many and share the table with another group, you can take the opportunity to meet people and share a few jokes."

  • "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."

    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

Every staff member that we encountered was friendly and helpful, and interested in having the Benihana experience be an enjoyable one. Food and drinks were good too."

  • "The server was slow and didn't do a good job explaining the special menu offered for Father's Day. It took along time to get our to go boxes. The chef wasnt as outgoing as other habachi places we've been. It is too expensive for the service levels."

  • "Was super excited to go for my son's birthday it was kind of lackluster. When we lived in Chicago Benihana was our go to spot. The steak was tasteless and chewy just an ok experience overall, there are much better hibachi places in the area for A LOT less money. The group that was seated with us ordered a super expensive meal and I feel like they were treated better than we were."

  • "Our meal at Benihana was excellent. Our cook, Fredy, did an excellent job preparing the food and entertaining us. Our 3 year old grandson had the kid's shrimp dinner and enjoyed it. My wife had the filet mignon and the meat was cooked to perfection. I had the Salmon with Avocado-tartar sauce. The chicken fried rice side was very good, as were the vegetables. "

  • "I've been to similar restaurants a couple dozen times and this place didn't match up on all levels. Service was extremely friendly but slow, the chef lacked flare and basically did nothing but cook our food with some twirls and clanging. No fire, no smoke, no food flinging, and barely an egg trick (one gentil crack with a spatula). The fried rice was seasoned with mostly with a large glob of garlic butter and a little soy sauce. The meat was cooked very well however, and the salad was crisp with decent ginger dressing. The sushi looked good but I did not try it. Food rating is tricky. Meat and zuccini could be argued to be 4 stars for this type of establishment, but the centerpiece is the fried rice which fell flat"

  • "Two special occasions had us in Orlando for the day and we were looking for a place to eat that we had not been to before. We have been to other Japanese Teppanyaki/Hibachi restaurants before and did not expect a lot of difference. The menu was pretty much in line with the others with some subtle differences. The food was all good (loved the shrimp!) and of course prepared right in front us. Our cook and other wait staff were fun and friendly, really making our time there enjoyable."

  • "Reception was a little bit snobbish. I like the fact that we were seated as soon as the rest of my friends arrived and did not have to wait. I must say that I enjoyed better the ambiance at the former location (Hilton) better, it had a nicer view, I found it more sophisticated. I was disappointed with the scarce amount of vegetables given. But the rest was your standard. Two of my friends had not been to your restaurant and enjoyed the experience. I had been to your former location and found this restaurant more to the crowd level. I was missing the high class mood of the former location."
