A word from Benihana - Schaumburg
Prepare for a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well as your taste buds. Listen as razor-sharp blades slice and dice through tender steak and juicy chicken. Take in the aroma as savory vegetables, shrimp and lobster sizzle before your eyes.

Sushi appetizers can be ordered in the dining room, or visit our sushi bar, where your sushi chef will prepare fresh sashimi, maki and temaki sushi from our full sushi menu.

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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
  • "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."

  • "We took my mom out to dinner, but it was my daughter first experience in your restaurant and with this type of cooking style. We all had a great experience, the server was great and the chef was great as well. Thank you for a wonderful evening."

  • "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!"

  • "We went to Benihana-Schaumburg to celebrate a birthday and everything was perfect. The staff was exceptionally accommodating for our vegetarian and gluten free diners. The chef was personable and the wait staff did a great job of taking care of us (and the birthday cake we brought!)."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "We often go to Japanese steak houses and have been to most of the chains and some of the independents. We've been to Benihana in several states and we know that the experience will be good wherever we are. Benihana in Schaumburg is no exception. The food is great, well-prepared and the service is good. We had a vegetarian with us and the choices are extremely limited. We realize it's a steakhouse but most every place has something for vegetarians. That would be my only complaint. If you are a carnivore you will love it."

  • "Benihana's is a popular birthday destination for groups because you can hold a conversation with everyone at the table. Chef's entertain the kids and the wait staff is friendly. Not fine dining but a fun evening out."

  • "Frequent the location in Schaumberg often for special occassions, and this was the first time I have been disappointed in the food and the service! The bartender was awesome!!!! he made us fabulous drinks while we were waiting for our table."

  • "My special needs son really enjoys the fancy knife work and special tricks the Grill Masters perform. We have been bringing him To Benihana for his birthday for many years and plan to keep up the tradition. It was a very nice experience for him. The staff were fun, polite and friendly. My Lobster and Chateaubriand were absolutely wonderful. A bit expenssive, but hey, he only turns 22 once right?"
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Great time at Benihana's for my birthday! The bartender is sweet but obviously new, which is a shame- they could have made another $100 from our group easily had he been a bit quicker. I was also sad to learn they don't have unfiltered sake, but the food and service at the table more than made up for it! Will definitely go again!"

  • "We went here for my mom and aunts birthday and like always the never disappoint. The only this is that I made reservations for 16 people for 7:30 and we werent seated until 8pm, and we were there ontime. Other then that it was great! They kids enjoyed themselves as well as the adults."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "First and foremost, the staff and food here are as good as it gets for this type of establishment. The chef was excellent, had a great sense of humor and prepared delicious meals. However, the couple seated at the end of the table had both their gigantic smartphones on the barely large enough eating counter, both were wearing bluetooth headsets and they also had a GoPro camera recording the chef and half the table, the entire time. It was quite rude and NO restaurant should allow this practice...especially when you are shelling out $125+ on a dinner for two. It didn't totally ruin our dinner, but it certainly was a lot less fun and romantic . Its sad to see that "dinner for two" now means being plugged in...and I want no part of that."

  • "This was our 16th time celebrating our anniversary at Benihana Schaumburg, IL. We had a good time and the food and service was good. The chef was very personable with our family especially our granddaughter. The only sanfu was they charged our large bill to another guest at our table and vice versa. I'm only saying this to recommend that you always look over your bill (at any restaurant) before leaving. It was a fun night with family! Happy New Year!"

  • "We love this place !! We have been her before and always enjoy the food. This time the food just seemed outstanding !! My husband and I had the "Splash & Meadow", it's shrimp and NY Strip steak and it was really good. It's always a fun place to go to."

  • "Benihana has always been my favorite restaurant. It is top notch in both eating and service. Japanese cuisine/preparation is healthy and delicious. Saturday's dining was differenct in that we ate in a different section (addition) of the restaurant. It was smaller, a little crowded and the cook did not have all of his food on his tray. Nevertheless, it was pleasurable, and the social setting with different people was enjoyable. And the food was as always, delicious. We cam e a little late for our reservation and the restaurant management quickly seated us in the alternate section mentioned above."

  • "Our food was very good and it was entertaining to watch the chefs. As soon as the chef finished he turned on an air vent which felt like it was sucking cold air in from outside. I live in Chicago, it's winter, I think it was 16 degrees outside. Our whole table was freezing. The food got cold fast. We all had our costs on. We complained 3 times and they would turn it off, then someone would come over and turn it back on. I had fun but wouldn't go back in winter."

  • ""Rambo" was our cook for our Christmas night family dinner. He was so fun and entertaining. Had a fantastic time, and the food was delicious."

  • "We just wanted sushi. Everyone else at the table ordered things to be cooked. We were sort of left out of the activity and felt awkward. We left as soon as possible. We were not drinking and everyone else was. We would have preferred being at a table by ourselves. It was just not a good choice for Christmas dinner for us. The waitress was not able to be attentive either, although the restaurant was pretty quiet."

  • "While we know the atmosphere at Benihana's is 8 person table settings so you sit with others, we were a party of 6 and joined the 8 person table which had 2 people at it. Part way into the dinner, the woman from the couple of 2 got up and came back with a child about the age of 7. There was not enough room at the table for this child and he cramped my space as I was at the corner where they sat him. They should have moved the couple to another table. Noise level also was a bit too much and made it difficult to carry on a conversation with people in our group at the other end of the table. Food was good. Mai Tais were great."

  • "The menu, the food, the service, the show(the Hibachi Chef), and the ambiance always beckons us to return. This time we brought our son, and he was dazzled by the chef and the attention to detail. Always a good time, maybe next time we will bring our other son! We recommend Benihana to all of our friends, and generally find that they already have had the same experience"
