A word from Benihana - Scottsdale
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 visit our sushi bar, where your sushi chef will prepare fresh nigiri, sashimi and specialty rolls, all with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine.

Diner Reviews
  • "We celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary. We had a nice tome and the food was great. It took quite some time for the cook to come out so we had to wait a while. He was good once he came out. They were nice to remember it was our anniversary. We have always loved Benihana and will return again."

  • "It was good dining experience and worth the money because I took home leftovers and ate two more times at home. "Three meals for one price" I love their soup and salad!"

  • "Benihana's is definitely not a place you can go very often unless you have a lot of money. It's great for events and I did notice lunch was a lot cheaper. There is also a sushi area up front which I'm assuming is not as expensive as the dining area. But it's definitely worth seeing the cooks perform and the food is excellent."

  • "I wish the restutant manager could have bent the rules just a little about handling birthday certificates. My last experience there for lunch wasn't good. They were short on wait staff and the service suffered. I suffered. Therefore, I thought they would have honored my birthday certificate for that reason BUT they told me no. That was very disappointing. If this Benihana's wasn't the closest to me I would go to another one."

  • "9 of us thoroughly enjoyed or dining experience at Benihana. We had a 3 year old who was really entertained yet our 3 and 4 month granddaughters were able to remain sleeping or quiet. The food was excellent as usual and our chef did a wonderful job with the presentation. The waiter was very attentive and customer oriented."

  • "I think the lunch menu is much better than the dinner Teppanyaki. Popular place for birthdays and families. Free downloadable photo of birthday group is a very nice touch to remember the occasion."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "And it did not disappoint. All the knife and spatula twirling, slicing, dicing , and onion volcano fun is there, plus the food is really good. Is it great food? Probably not, in the grand scheme of things, but it's pretty darn good, and the experience makes up for any shortcomings. Well worth the time and money."

  • "We dine at Benihana on a regular basis and the overall service is always tops - from the front staff to the dining waitresses and chefs. The food was plentiful and great as always."

  • "Better food at other Benihana locations (such as Chandler, AZ) and the wait staff was less than happy to be there. Never ask for a spoon or other items, because you will get a cold expression from the wait staff---- as if they are too inconvenienced!!! And the food did not taste good on this visit for some reason.... I guess there is not consistency in the different times you attend this restaurant....."

  • "If you have been there more than once, it's all the same. They do the same little gig each time, all the chefs. When it's as expensive as it is, you would think that they might change it up a little bit. Disappointing."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "The service was slow. The chef over-salted the food to extreme. Quality of beef was only average. I get better beef at Sam's Club."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "I enjoy every aspect of this restaurant. The food was great and I love the interaction that the chef was with us. The food was delicious and I will continue to visit this restaurant."

  • "We went for my boyfriends birthday and had a wonderful time. The service was great and as always the food was fantastic. We had a few empty chairs at our table which was nice cause it gave us a little extra room to stretch out and not be so cramped like you normally feel when you are at a full table. Every member of our family always comes on our birthday for our free meal so we will see you back again in about a month or 2!"

  • "This is a wonderful place to have a small party! Has a great atmosphere, good service. The chefs are always funny & entertaining. The noise level was a little bit loud but I think worth it. Food is great! & I love watching it be prepared."

  • "Dinner was fun and our waiter and chef were both exceptional and attentive so the service was outstanding. The food was good but other than the chicken fried rice, not exceptional. For me, that's a nuance of eating at a teppan grill. I am a fan of flavors and unique tastes with fine dining experiences so salt, pepper and garlic butter only can do so much. I really liked the sauce provided and used it for everything. We enjoy the teppan experience as it's always a fun atmosphere and a great place for special occasions. And we will always go back."

  • "We can always count on a meal that meets high standards in quality and taste. The chefs are always attentive to their task yet entertain guest's personal requests."

  • "why would you sit a couple celebrating a birthday on date night with reservations with small children? if we didnt have to be somewhere we would have walked out."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "well title says it all. inattentive waitress. chef was wearing an dirty coat. seems aloof when asked to prepare food without much sodium' as we were 6 people who needed that. we had the chicken and filet special . overcooked steak and hardly any chicken. the noise was so loud we couldnt even talk. and the chef didnt give much of a show. which is why we enjoy going there. think the portions have gotten smaller and truthfully there are better steaks out there for the money dissa pointing at best"

  • "I was entertained and the chef paid special attention to everyone, especially the children. The food was excellent! I could not get enough of the mustard dipping sauce, and the Chef's Special was perfectly priced."

  • "I've always been very happy eating at Benihana's. Love the food. This time the service was very slow, it took us a long time before we were waited on and the server kept forgetting the refills on our drinks that we ordered, we had to keep reminding him. The soup is usually very good, but this night, by the time it got to the table, it was almost cold. The chef was hispanic and was difficult to understand as he had broken English. I'm very sad to have to even mention poor service because in all the many years I have been going to Benihana's, I've never had a problem. I also noticed that the Scottsdale location seems to be getting run down, it isn't as nice anymore compared to the Chandler location."

  • "My sister and I took our mother here for her birthday. Very nice wait staff and chef was entertaining. My husband chose to just have sushi, which was very good as well. The onion soup was surprisingly good!!"
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "We had a 6pm reservation and did not get out of the restaurant until after 8pm. Apparently, there was a shortage of cooks that night. Also, there was a delay in taking our drink order. We waited an unusually long time before the cook showed up. This is a place the grandchildren like to go on their birthdays."

  • "First time here and everything was excellent. Our server was very bubbly and efficient. Our Japanese chef was excellent and had a great sense of humor. Food was prepared perfectly."

  • "Every Benihana restaurant I have been to has been full of life and very exciting. The Benihana in Scottsdale is lacking an exciting atmosphere. Our wait staff and cook were nice, but frankly boring. We will not be returning."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "This was our first time to this restaurant and did not know what to expect. The overall experience from the restaurant itself was not bad, it was enjoyable to watch the cooking and the chef for the most part. The people we were paired with during the dining was the problem. They had been celebrating a birthday by drinking since 2:00 in the afternoon and were loud and obnoxious at times and pretty much took over the entire evening with the chef. The food was ok, not as good as I expected for the price. The chicken was dry, the filet mignon ok. The best part of the dining was the "show" the chef put on. Would not be inclined to return."

  • "All around great place to eat & dine. Food was magnificent and the preparation was a unique experience. Will definitely be going back."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "The service was very slow. We had to wait for the cook. When he did show up I was disappointed with how slow he was. His big deal was playing the drums with his utensils. My husband had a piece of the shrimp tail in his rice. One man at our table sat there an hour and a half before he got his food at the end."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "My wife and I always have a great experience at your restaurant. The table layout gives us a great opportunity to talk with each other and to meet other couples to talk with during dinner. Love the chef's cooking and entertainment."
