Benihana - Plano
Carol's Benihana BirthdayWe've been coming to Benihana for my wife's birthday since we've been married. 5 years now. It is always a wonderful & delicious experience. We absolutely LOVE Benihana & always look forward to when we return.
Now, if I can only convince her to go even when it's not her birthday. :)5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMehFood was ok but watch out of the mandatory tip. We went for my wife's birthday and had a coupon for her dinner. In the fine print, they mention that an 18% gratuity will be added, but who reads the fine print. Honestly that was what I would have tipped, but i HATE mandatory tipping, especially since we were a party of 2. The manager did take it off, after I complained, but the way it is placed on your check makes it look as if you still need to tip MORE. This appears to me to be a way to scam an extra 18% before tipping, which makes in a tax, not a tip. Shame on you Benihana. I don't blame this restaurant, as it is a corporate decision, but I will not be back. There are plenty of other places in the area.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were there to celebrateWe were there to celebrate our son's 17th birthday and they truly made him feel special. It was fun for all!!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a delight! Chef EdgarAlways a delight! Chef Edgar was charming, funny, and prepared a delicious meal for everyone. The entire table was very pleased!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Birthdays & Special TimesReally good food, though admittedly not enough rice for my tastes, and awesome service makes this a great place to go for birthdays and special occasions. I got the Chateaubriand Steak and Scallops and, OMG, the steak almost literally melted in my mouth, it was so tender. While it can be a little pricy, averaging about 30-35 dollars a plate, the $30 birthday certificate really helps to offset the cost. In addition, the Sushi is phenomenal and extremely reasonably priced; great for chilling after work. Also, if you like things done a certain way, don't be afraid to ask the chef to do extra stuff; just make sure that, if there are other people at the grill, you ask them if it is ok because everything is fixed communally.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBob BirthdayI had mentioned when making online reservation that my guest was celebrating his birthday, was assured the complimentary dessert would be taken care of, and it was. I did not need to remind anyone upon arrival. The wine serving was modest, considering the cost of what I chose (one of the lowest prices).4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated AdministrativeWe celebrated Administrative Assistant's Day!

The food was very good and the service was good also. We enjoyed this for my husband's birthday!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a great place to haveThis is a great place to have "dinner & a show"! The Chet's (entertainment) abilities are hit & miss. I've had the best luck with a great show chef on Friday or Saturday dinner time. It seems that's when the best are out & entertaining & engaging with guests.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI eat at this Benihana restaurantI eat at this Benihana restaurant at least once a week.
