A word from Benihana - Sugar Land
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!

  • "Hi Everything was great except the back room was very, very hot even with portable air conditioners near each table."

  • "My family of 5 regularly dines at Benihana's. The past three times that we went there, the restaurant was so hot, it was uncomfortable and we almost left. This last time we went to the Sugar Land location. We had to ask them to turn the A/C on and they were using a stand up fan trying to cool off the place-on a Friday night! I expect more from a place where we are paying $30 and up per person! The two times before that we went to the Westheimer location. The Westheimer location is really bad, the restaurant is so hot, the service is really bad and so slow and the restaurant was dirty. There were tables left with plates on them for a long time and the restrooms were nasty. I won't go to this location any more."

  • "This was my wife's first time and she really enjoyed the presentation. We will probably not come back because the prices don't match the food and its not suitable for my 2yr old."

  • "We went to the one in Sugar Land on Wednesday evening. As my husband said - you pay for the experience. So now I've experienced it. I am good. Nothing special about the chicken my husband ate. My veggies were so overlooked that I could have mashed them like potatoes. If you like vegetables that soft then go for it. Service- we were served. No one was rude and we did get our drinks. But NO smile from the person who seated us and NO smile from the waitress. I mean, fake it for two minutes. That's what you're paid for. I would have been EXTREMELY disappointed if this had been a special occasion."

  • "The food was okay, but, however the cook was vert indifferent and unfair. He gave the extra food to a few white people, not the kids who sorround to have fun. The cook was very indifferent. Not talking, only performed a few tricks becaus he had to. Don't show any single enthiastic energy towards his cooking and entertaining the customers. It was such a awful experience. The only reason that I went is kids liked it and asked for. I regreted to give him tips for his service."

  • "The one thing I like about eating at Benihana is you see your food prepared in front of you…so you know what you are getting. I took my sister and her family out for her 50th birthday. Our dishes ranged from steak, seafood, & chicken. Everyone was pleased with their food; they took a photo of all of us and gave it to my sister…not to mention sung happy birthday to her. All seven of us enjoyed the meal and the experience. "

  • "It is a treat to experience the performance of the chef cooking while he juggles and makes jokes. I took some stars out of the service simply because my table had to wait 1hr in till we got a chef."

    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "We had 8 in our group and our food ranged from seafood to chicken to steak and everything was cooked exactly to our specifications! The food was delicious and our waitress was attentive enough. We eat here 3-4 times a year as a whole group and enjoy ourselves everytime. Even with reservations there is still a wait and that's my only complaint. Luckily it's only a 15-20 minute wait. It's really difficult to keep a toddler satisfied from waiting to be seated til the end of the meal."

  • "the service was amazing as always but for some reason we had to wait for a very long time after being seated to when the chef's came to the grill to start our meals. It's never taken that long before."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "The food was fresh and the Hibachi chicken rice is great as always. The great service and friendly table side Hibachi chef is what makes this place a treat. They even sang a birthday song at our table and provided a group picture afterwards."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "We have eaten at other Benihana's where the seating is more "clustered" and in booths, which tends to muffle some of the noise. The Sugar Land location was more open, and maybe because of that, plus the early time of our reservation (6:30 p.m) and the fact that there were a couple of birthday celebrations going on, it was VERY noisy. Add to that the unnecessary (or maybe for dramatic flair) clanging of the cooks' metal spatulas against the grills, my husband who wears a hearing aid was cringing for the first half hour we were there. Had we not been there with guests, he probably would have insisted we leave. The noise did come down to a somewhat tolerable level after a while, but we still understood little of what our cook was saying."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "My husband and I made reservations a month in advance for what we thought was going to be a special occasion. We were seated quickly however, we were seated at a table with small children. This was our "date night" without children & a special occasion at that. I feel that we should have been asked if we minded being sat with children - with it being Valentines Day. Our chef was just going through the motions, was not interactive or happy to be there, so it put an even bigger damper on the evening. I could have been so much happier with Chinese delivery and a bottle of wine in the privacy of my own home."
