Benihana - Puente Hills
Our chef was entertainingOur chef was entertaining and engaging. While making our fried rice, he used the eggs to make a sponge bob.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMKidsWe took our 3 young sons to celebrate good grades. It was great! They had the best time watching the show and loved the food. We also got seated quickly, which is nice with young kids.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEntertainingthe food was great along with a show and I would go there again.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMEven thought I had made reservationEven thought I had made reservations but failed to make it on time, I was surprised and pleased that I was still placed on first available spot for seating. My date and I ordered a couple of drinks at the bar while waiting. The place was busy and people were also waiting but within a few minutes I was called for seating. The chef was very entertaining and the food was very delicious. It was a great dinning experience for us.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBest birthday progamEven though it was a weekday, the place was crowded. Almost every table had a birthday person with Happy Birthday being heard throughout the evening. The choice of selections was good. However, we had to wait 40 minutes or more after we had put in our order before the chef came over to our table. The entire dinner took over 2 hours. I felt sorry for the people who ordered steaks as they had to wait until all the seafood and chicken items were done before their steaks were cooked. The veggies and fried rice take too long to prepare.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMALL AROUND GREAT RESTURANTI TOOK MY FRIEND JUSTIN TO THIS BENIHANAS FOR THE FIRST TIME AND HE LOVED IT. THE CHEF HAD HIM GIGGLING AND SAY MMMM TO THE FOOD ALL NIGHT AND OUR WAITOR WAS AMAZING! HE WAS COMPLETELY ON TOP OF OUR DRINKS ASKING US HOW EVERYTHING TASTED IT WAS FANTASTIC. I WOULD REALLY HOPE THAT I GET THAT SAME WAITOR AGAIN NEXT TIME I GO. EXTREMELY POLITE AND ON TOP OF EVERYTHING.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIntertainingHad a great time. Kids had a blast. Too bad the rice was a little too salty and we could enjoy and eat it like we usually do.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot for any occasionI was overall very content with the service on that special day, our mother's 70th birthday. The hostess and server were attentive and professional. Our chef was entertaining for us to see. The food was fresh and delicious as well. There is nothing more gratifying than eating your food to your liking and piping hot off the grill. In short, it was a memorable moment for our mother. Thank you, Benihana's!!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMMy 71st Birthday CelebrationWhat a beautiful experience we had! Thanks for the friendly staff, the good food, the complimentary birthday photo, happy birthday song, and ice cream.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMPleased with MealI made reservations for 8:00 PM and despite having arrived late, our reservation was respected and we were seated in less than ten minutes after arriving.
Our chef was energetic and made sure to interact with our party of five and the party of two sitting across from us at our station.
I ordered the Mango Salmon dish and it was prepared very well. The chef paid attention to our requests (my younger sister asked for the "spicy" sauce on the side and the chef accommodated her request).
Overall, my mom was very pleased with her birthday celebration meal.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMCasual Evening OutWe very much enjoyed the chicken fried rice. My friend enjoyed her meal very much.
I had the tuna steak and later had a problem which I believe was probably because of the sesame seeds. Can the food be prepared (as a special order) without sesame seeds? I believe that the chicken fried rice has sesame seeds in it, too.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMYum yumGreat food fun atmosphere large servings diverse menu choices5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI love BenihanasFirst off the sushi ON POINT!!! I had the hibachi also and loved the show . it was my moms first time there and it was for sure keeping her entertained. the mixed drinks were amazing :) I had one of their mojitos and it blew my mind how delicious it was. I cant compare this benihanas to others because I haven't been to others but I have been to other hibachi grills but in Florida and it was way better on all levels.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMKid friendly menuI took my 4 year son and I wish there was chicken nuggets available

The only negative, I was told the Teppan Bar could accommodate 10-11 people. We had a party of 10 and it was extremely tight. It was uncomfortable but we made do.
I still gave 4 star review. The personnel as usual are so accommodating. Thank you!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my niece for her birthday.I took my niece for her birthday.

The service was excellent and I can't wait to do it again and impress more friends with my excellent taste in restaurants. Yay.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Stellar, never Disappointed!Benihana - Puente Hills has been the best Benihana location in my opinion for several years now. Although there are some other finely managed locations (Carlsbad comes to mind), this Benehana location always delivers a phenomenal experience. The service is always prompt and friendly, the cooks are masterful and entertaining and the food is consistently stellar and remarkable. If I lived closer to this location I would easily be here a couple of time a time a month! This location is great for entertaining small groups of 6-10 for social events such as holidays, birthdays, etc. And they have excellent cocktails too!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMVery efficient staff, friendly.Very efficient staff, friendly. I asked for a Spanish speaking server or chef and they did accommodate my request.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMServiceMy husband and I go to Benihana's whenever we get a chance. We really enjoy the food and the cooking entainment. However, on my last visit the hostess kept reaching over me and my food to accommodate others at our table. She seemed to lazy to walk around to the other side to serve. This is not what I usually encounter at Benihana's but on Thursday 4/4/13 the hostess was rude in this manner. Also on our previous visit I could see straight into the kitchen from my seat where they were carving up steaks. It was gross and I think they should have done this in a space where they could not be seen from the dinner tables. I complained to the hostess, she told the manager, and he said sorry, they have to carve the meat up at this time.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe wait for our seating wasThe wait for our seating was short. The service was great. The server got everything we needed and the chef was outstanding and entertaining.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPlan on being there for anPlan on being there for an hour or two. Wear you stretchy pants! Love this place!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food, amazinglyWonderful food, amazingly entertaining.The dinner event went by so fast.l I was sad it was over so soon......The food feast was non stop and every bit was perfect. Looking forward to my visit3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMPlace where Kids Enjoy Cooking!This is the place to go where both parents and kids enjoy dining. Foods are cooked at your table thru the entertaining chef.
I always suggest to go here with a reservation as the place is nearly always full.
My kid always look forward to see "Spongebob" that is done by the chef while cooking the eggs. You get great sushi and sashimi selection which is not to be an appetizer for some if your going to have an entree.
The entree is really filling and good tasting. You get soup, shrimp appetizer, veggies
, rice and then the meat or seafood depending on your order. You get two sauces, one for the meat and the other for seafood and vegetable.
We did enjoy the chef who is entertaining and food is always great!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for a great meal!Great place for a great meal! Food was excellent. Chef was a little off, but that is forgivable since the tricks they do while cooking are pretty difficulty in themselves.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMI LOVE THIS PLACE THE COOKSI LOVE THIS PLACE THE COOKS PUT A SHOW FOR US IT WAS AMAZING.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
