A word from Benihana - Schaumburg
Welcome to Benihana and a dining experience unlike any other! If you’ve never been to Benihana before, let us tell you what you can expect: Our guests are seated at communal tables in groups of eight to ten, where your personal chef will perform the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Watch as we slice and dice, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well taste buds, whether you choose mouth-watering steak, tender chicken or succulent seafood.

Or you can visit our sushi lounge where a talented sushi chef will prepare the freshest sashimi, maki and signature sushi rolls with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine. Smaller tables and more intimate seating is available in the lounge or bar on a first-come, first-served basis, whether you’re looking to enjoy one of our delicious Benihana Teppanyaki entrées or our amazing selection of sushi!

Diner Reviews
  • "Almost too much by the time you get your soup, salad, appetizer, and finally get to the entree (all for one price). However, the chefs put on an entertaining, but repetitive show (if you watch what happens at an adjacent table, there won't be any surprises when the chef arrives to prepare your meal)."

  • "Awful. We'll never go back. Food (especially the shrimp) was over cooked, not flavorful and over priced. They charged us extra for sauces and never told us until the bill arrived. We should have gone to Wildfire."

  • "Food was great, people were great. Brought our 2 year old and were able to have a fairly stress-free dining experience. Would recommend to anyone looking for a little entertainment with their dinner and of course, fantastic food. Everything from the dressing on the salad to the soup to the steak was great. Don't know how culturally accurate the place is abut the food tastes fantastic."

  • "Predictably good experience. Same tricks by the chef but always enjoyable."

  • "Felt like I was asked to eat on metro train during rush hour. I had a reservation days in advance for my wife's birthday. One other group already at the table when I was seated with my family of 3 total. Wife and daughter were placed at end of the table and I was on the "long side". There was no real room for me so I had to share my limited space with that of my daughter. I was horribly uncomfortable the whole time but did not want to ruin my wife's birthday with a scene at the moment. Group before us had taken the long side all but a half a chair's worth. I had to reach over the man next to me to get to my food which made things worse. Horrible experience for a meal over $100 with no alcohol. More than disappointed."

  • "Benihana is that restaurant that you just have to try to say you've been there. The food is good and the chefs are engaging. The wait staff was attentive. I would recommend it to others but there are also better habachi shows at other restaurants. Benihana is a staple in habachi meals though."

  • "A group of us went here for lunch and ordered off the lunch Hibachi menu. The chef for our table I show was Fernando and he cooked the food perfectly. He was also very pleasant and we engagaed him in some simple conversation which added to our positive impression of the place. Good portions. We also ordered just a little sushi off their main menu. Everyone was very attentive there. The menu is all in one little "booklet" and it was a little difficult to find the correct menu from which to order at a given time of day and for a given style. They were very accommodating for wheelchair and electric scooter"

  • "Dining at Benihana was just how I remember it- and in a good way. The food was good, the show was fun, and everyone had a great time. They are currently celebrating their 50th anniversary, so every party gets a photo of their group to take home...a nice touch, and now we have a cute souvenir of my daughter's eleventh birthday dinner."

  • "We have been here before & it was ok. W/ our reservation we still waited 20 mins. After drinks & orders had been taken our chef came out and started to review the orders, 1st problem-he couldn't read the ticket. Lets just say he went back into the kitchen 4 times! There wasn't enough shrimp for the appitizers, 2 of the steaks and mushrooms were missing, the Lobster was missing and something else (?). My scallops were undercooked, pinkish/blue is not done. My daughter's steak had to be recooked-it was raw. There was no entertainment the "chef" was to distracted by the omissions and errors that there was no room for service. Last they brought ice cream to celebrate our anniversary and gave it to the party seated with us."

  • "The reason I came to this Restaraunt was because I had a joyous event to celebrate. I brought my friend's two grandchildren as I was not much older when I first ate at Benihanas in Half Day. I was so impresses with the antics of the chef. S This experience was just as exceptional. Our chef was a delight. That was the only reason I chose to come. The food was as expected - very good. The service was very good. I appreciated being able to make on-line reservations with a place to leave a note. I mentioned the girls had never been to a Benihanas and hoped the chef would make it memorable for them. That is what happened. They will talk about this for some time to come Thank you"

  • "Whenever my family wants to go for a special dinner out, we always think of Benihana's first. The staff is so wonderfully friendly and the kids love the entertainment of the chef right at our table. My husband and I always know the food will be first rate and I love their Mhai Thais. There is literally something for everyone when we eat at Benihana!!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "My daughter picked Benihana's for her birthday dinner. We were not disappointed! The food was fresh, the grill was clean...and our server Tom was quite funny and skilled with a knife. Sometimes you can leave these places that cook inn front of you smelly like a hibachi grill and onions...we did not! Meaning the ventilation was good! They even took a picture of our family and printed it for us to take home. Overall, we got just what we came for...a great time!"

    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We say with a lovely group of women and a lovely chef who was fun and joking with our group but that doesn't account for the feeling of being rushed all evening, the servers being extremely rude, or the attitude of the manager who over charged me for my drinks."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Our group goes here to celebrate birthdays and has a great time interacting with the chefs. The food is cooked to order and everyone from management down to the hostess is always willing to help."

  • "Great for a casual business meeting. Enough background noise to cloak discussions, but not enough to make conversation difficult"

  • "Had not been to Benihana in years and felt it would be a fun change to the norm. Overall was not disappointed. Food was good and it creates a fun,lively atmosphere. Will be back soon with the family"

  • "It was our family's first time visiting this location. It was loud, hardly could understand our waiter, there is a charge for everything. For how expensive this place was I believe giving me a few more onions was not neccessary to charge. The portion sizes were not worth the money, our meals lacked flavor and depth. I have been to several japanese restaraunts which top this place by far. Not a good b.day surprise for my cousin who was from out of town. The only positive was the reservation made overnight was seamless!"
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "This place was great the people are friendly and quick. At the beginning they ask if we were there for a special occasion and after dinner they bring out the birthday desert and they come out with the manager and sing happy birthday. They even sang in their native tongue which I liked very much. Afterwards they take a picture of the party which I thought they would've given me a site to look at it later but instead they printed it and handed me a picture. Nice little memory. "

  • "I've been to Benihana in Schaumburg numerous times!! This time was by far the most disappointing. The service was not as good as it usually is, and when I made the reservations I noted we were celebrating a birthday. Not only did nothing happen we had to remind our server that we had a birthday. We live two hours away and still find the time to make it out there because it is my wife's favorite restaurant, but I've got to say this last time was very disappointing."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Food took almost one hour to arrive at the table. Ordered half sushi rolls, but was charged for full rolls. Chef didn't seem to enjoy what he was doing. He didn't speak loud and clear. Will not be returning to restaurant."

  • "Having had a great experience for dinner in the past at Benihana's, I was very disappointed with the recent lunch experience. Our chef Jose seemed to be just going through the motions with little enthusiasm. The chicken hibatchi which we both ordered was dry. The waitress had a thick accent, and we could barely understand her when we spoke with her. Throughout our lunch, we seemed rushed by the waitress. Three times she tried to take my salad even though I said I was not finished with it. Overall, I would not return here for lunch."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Loud, as expected at a hibachi. Staff, while attentive seemed to want to rush you through like cattle. Cook wasn't overly entertaining. My medium rare fillet didn't have a speck of red left in it. Shrimp were chewy and overcooked. The two sushi rolls were average. Won't repeat this location."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Food was overall good. It, however, tasted better the day after. Would recommend if this is your first time going to a restaurant of this type."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Went to Benihana for my daughters birthday and through the evening we heard may other birthday celebrations as well. It has become my daughters favorite place for her birthday. You share the table with other diners, but if you have a big group it is easy to fit around the table. Food is fresh and cooked right at your table. Don't have any thing but good things to say. You always go home with a full and happy stomach."
    Dined on 3/3/2014
  • "While the food was excellent, the entire concept behind Benihana is supposed to center around the table side food preparation...and the "show" that is included. I had noted on my reservation form that this was for my wife's birthday and it was my two children's first experience at Benihana. We had told them about the fun, cool experience...and I do admit that they saw that at every other table but ours. Every other chef had shrimp tails flying, eggs flipping and food launching onto plates...all we got was a pile of onions that our chef pushed around like a train while he said "choo-choo"...my kids are 9 and 12...not 3! Very disappointed!"
