A word from Benihana - Plano
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 try our sushi appetizers, all prepared fresh nigiri, sashimi and specialty rolls, all with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine.

Located on the North side of the Shops at Legacy across from the fountain.

  • "Our chef Sanchez did an amazing job entertaining all of us and our dinner was outstanding. The kids at our table enjoyed his performance and also ate their whole dinner!"

  • "As always, just a wonderful dining experience today for lunch at Benihana's in Plano. Chef Sanchez and our wonderful server were spectacular, as usual, but I'd also like to thank one of the bus boys, Alexander Tovar, because he always goes out of his way to welcome me and make me feel at home. This simply speaks to the incredible customer service at the Plano location. Every employee is well versed in customer service and it certainly feels REAL! Bravo to the management team. They are doing a wonderful job."

  • "Today's lunch was wonderful. Chef Sanchez was outstanding! The service was flawless. There were three separate "dining groups" represented at our table, and each one told the manager how wonderful the experience was! Drinking hot tea - and ice water - I marveled that neither cup.glass was half-empty before the server returned to fill them back up. Remarkable (not to mention: well done)!"

  • "Good for groups of 7 or more to have your own table. But the concept of sharing table is fun as well. I could understand there might me waits even though you have reservations due to hibachi style. Other than that, everything was awesome"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "I understand it was lunch, but it seemed a little rushed. Was good, though. More of a show at dinner."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "As always, wonderful meal by Chef Sanchez. Entire table burst in to applause at the end of the meal. Well done!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "I was disappointed that the hibachi was done by a Mexican as this is an insult and would not be allowed in an upscale hibachi place. When I go to a Japanese place I expect the while experience! I'm an Italian and Irish from NY and when people dine Italian I know people would expect an Italian to make there sauce! Treated my husband, out last hibachi was oyster point, VA run by Japanese and Columbia, MD Also authentic! If I wanted Mexican there's plenty of it as I'm in the southwest!"

  • "Our Chef was "OONO" and he was absolutely wonderful, very funny and entertaining. He made my wife’s Birthday celebration memorable which is priceless. We have celebrated both of our birthidays at this location for the past 5 years and love it."

  • "Food was great just not a filler upper food amount is small"
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "The quality of their food was exceptional (compared to other 3 similar places we have been). Incredible service, the waiter went out of his way help us and calm one of our children who was crying. Also, Chef Sanchez was amazing, making our experience better by taking special attention to our kids."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Wonderful food; wonderful fun; wonderful service. In fact, the people with whom I shared the table told the server that he was the best they had ever had, and they eat at this location once a week. There is a reason we come back time and time again. This is the best-managed Benihana's in the Dallas area. Plain and simple. Well done."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Hurrah to Benihana's Plano. Once again, they have provided a wonderful meal, outstanding service, and an entertaining ambiance. Chef Sanchez was wonderful, as usual. Well done and I can't wait to return!"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "The overall experience at the restaurant was good, but the food had no flavor or seasoning on it. We kept having to put salt and pepper on or food. This was the first time my fiancée and been there and we expected more with the prices of the food."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "I have already emailed the restaurant. Very slow service, poor quality steak very over cooked and tough, veg and shrimp burnt, rice had no flavor. Server took forever to come check on us. Not worth the $250 we spent. If we go back we will go back to the Dallas location where past experiences have been great."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "We had a great experience with good food and good service for my Father in-law's birthday. Benihana is on the high end of our budget, but I'm sure we will be back for special occasions in the future."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "When you're hungry for tender filet mignon, this is a great place to go! It is perfectly cooked and very delicious! The service seems good at first and then wanes when your grill master takes over. From then on, you have to request drinks, apps, etc. Community seating is better for groups than date night! We will go again for a family affair."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "My wife and I went just for a date night and it was a pleasant experience. Ended up having a great amount of laughs with the others at our table. The food was delicious and cooked with pride. The tuna steak is a great option. Overall a great meal and fun and different from their lunch atmosphere."

  • "Food, service and ambiance was good. Was running late for lunch reservation. We were seated in about 5 minutes, which was nice. My son received a picture and complimentary ice cream. We enjoyed the visit."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Today, for the first time ever, Benihana Plano was a bit off in their food and service. Luckily, I know the quality of this restaurant and know that this is a rare occurrence. Still looking forward to returning and having another great meal at this wonderful restaurant!"

  • "We took my son for his 12th Birthday. We had a great time Food was amazing! I made reservations ahead of time asking for a chef that was experienced and funny for kids. I think that was too much to ask. He not experienced nor funny. But food was great."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "waitress came back demanded more tips. I dont pay with cash very often. it was a mistake on my part and admittedly i did not tip enough but that left a bad taste in my mouth. she spoke to me about how the chef gets 10% and there is a note in my bill explaining that. Anyways, i would get them a proper tip when i pay with my credit card next time."

  • "Went out with another couple for a kid free evening. Was happy to be seated with other adults. Was a fun evening evening. We had a reservation for 8:00 and had to wait 5 minutes or so for our table to be cleaned. The server was prompt and friendly, the drinks and food were yummy. I prefer to go here for special occasions."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "We went there for my son's 12th birthday and had a wonderful time. Our chef and server were wonderful. Our chef Onoo, not sure if I correctly spelled his name, was the best chef we have ever had at Benihana's. He really entertained the kids and did a wonderful job with the food. Best visit to Benihana's Plano yet!"

  • "Everything was great I will be going back very soon"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Wonderful food! Wonderful service! Wonderful everything. I love this restaurant, and the people at the table at which I dined, were most certainly in agreement, as they burst in to applause when Chef Sanchez was finished. For people who complain that they make reservations and then Benihana(s) seats them late, please try and make earlier reservations. It is obvious, even to me, that Benihana's can't control how long people just want to sit and talk after their meal. I saw it at the next table last night. Just a thought."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Good food but thought they need to come up with a better "show" as it was basically the same as other places of this type and just a bunch of spatula and knife spinning with a little train onion. Was not impressed with the cooking performance especially since there were no young kids at our table. Seemed expensive for good food and a less than intertaining show."

  • "Our party of 8 had a great time at the Benihana's Shops at Legacy location. The food and service was great. Bartenders were awesome!"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Great place, we had reservation for two and reservations were right on time. Cooks were great and had great attitude even with other people not paying attention. I great food and drinks. I would recommend this place to anyone."

  • "I really like this location, however, parking is not always easy to come by."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "I've always thought the chefs here were well-trained, but I've noticed a trend toward less skillful chefs in the past couple of years and unfortunately our chef last week was sloppy and un-polished. Plus, the service was way too slow - we were there 2 hours for what should have been 90 mins at the most. Not my favorite experience. :("
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Make no mistake, I love Benihana's - PLANO. I am a regular diner there and there is a reason for that. The staff is incredible and they treat you like family. They consistently go out of their way to make me feel special and I appreciate them so much. My chef for this evening was Chef Sanchez. I shared the table with a lovely group of people, and there is no question that everyone was very pleased with the entire experience. Thank you, Benhana's!"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "We go to Benihana with our best friends and their family for all of our birthdays. We have a great time and the staff is always really nice . The manager was right on top of checking on our dining experience a couple of times during dinner and the wait staff and chef were great too. The kids always have fun !! We will be back again soon !!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "It's a little overpriced for what is offered and nothing is terribly unusual (expected a bit more originality in the menu) but the experience was fun. The service was good, though we all felt rushed and a little overwhelmed by the choices available. The restaurant had a good vibe but there was almost so much going on so fast that we each felt that we missed a little bit of something in the experience itself. I would highly recommend that first-time diners take their time and engage in as much conversation as possible between service so they can take it all in."

  • "This is our seven-year old daughter's go-to for a celebration dinner. We like it too. Service is always great and food is always good."

  • "we normally eat at RA at The Shops at Legacy but wanted to take our kids out with us and thought it would be fun to take them to Benihana. Of course the kids didnt know any better, but my husband and I were NOT IMPRESSED. I took two bites of my sushi rolls and couldnt eat any more. I guess Im spoiled but so are most of us - so you would relate. Everyone else had the eye-candy food. All ordered the surf and turf. I snacked on my daughters bc she couldnt finish and I am thinking Chili's would be better. Glad I got that idea over and done with. The kids love RA so that is where we will take them for now on."

  • "We had reservation @ 8:30 which we was seated at 10pm. Another party of 8 walked in at 9pm and was seated right away. The Host never explain why we were not seated, when I proceeded to approach her for the 2nd time to request the purpose for the long delay she looked at me as if I justed walked in...Then she handed me a pager after the 2nd time approaching the desk.( I really believe she never added or checked us in for 8:30) we were never greeted. Once seated we waited until 11 for the Cook and begin to eat at Midnight. The cooked walked away forgetting some of the ingredients and never once acknowledge the table that He needed to step away. ( WOW) what a 1st impression......"
