A word from Benihana - Troy
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!

    We haven't been to a Japanese Steakhouse in forever. We made a reservation that day. It was packed when we walked in the door 15 minutes prior to our reservation time. I stared at my watch figuring it would be an hour before we got back. We were sat in 20 minutes. 5 minutes from our reservation time. I was impressed. Food was very good.

    Went to Benihana for my husband's birthday. There were 3 of us, & even with reservations, we waited 20-25 minutes to be seated; what I didn't realize was that they need to fill each table to capacity (or at least close to it), so we had to wait for another party with the right number to make up a full table before we could be seated. We were seated with a group of six others. Service was quick & attentive, the chef was very good & very entertaining, & the food was excellent. Different dishes were kept separate on the grill, & the surface was cleaned between dishes, which I appreciated. But those with asthma & seafood allergies should avoid, due to the open cooking of lost of seafood items. It is an asthma attack waiting to happen for them.

    I've been here before, I loved the food the first time and I understand it's not always the same cook but my food wasn't as pleasant. Just wish it was more consistent. My sushi rolls were falling apart and hot food didn't taste the same.

The people we sat with were very friendly and we had a great time as if we were there with great friend. I will definitely go back. Oh yeah, the food, was absolutely delicious and of all the Benihana's in Michigan, this is the best one!!

    Walked in door to hear a group of people having a problem with their table situation . From my perspective they were going to be a problem table no matter what. I know the type. Fortunately we were not seated with them to be part of that problem table. We were celebrating a birthday. Food and service was great. We particularly enjoyed Kevin our chef. We live in Troy with lots of diversity , we were the only other Caucasian party in the entire restaurant . Seemed rather odd.

    Only order hibachi at the grill, not at the sushi bar. They can't get the food to you hot from the kitchen and make excuses for the distance from the kitchen to the table for the food being cold. The waitress we had barely speaks English and seems to take offense when you say the food is not good. For a $34 plate of Filet Mignon I expect it to be hot and tender. Not cold and tough. One big tip to Benihana, GET HOT PLATES LIKE EVERY OTHER RESTAURANT SERVING FILET MIGNON AND QUIT MAKING EXCUSES WHEN YOU SERVE IT TO A TABLE THAT IS NOT AT THE HIBACHI!

    I think that if someone makes a reservation that they should be seated alone & not with strangers; this was our first experience and the woman who sat with us was on her lunch break and trying to rush us through our experience so that she was not late back to work. Very upsetting!

    It was very crowded but of course it would be on a sweetest day Saturday, even though it was crowded and my group was 15 minutes late with reservations and had to wait for a table for what seemed to be over 30 minutes, it was still worth it. Your chief and waitress were awesome. The food was great and so were the drinks.

    The food was great that night, but didn't taste the same when I had to reheat it the next day, we got seated fast because of the reservation, the chef and his assistant were really nice.. I think my biggest problems were... my boyfriend is tall so he didn't have leg room, it was very loud so we had to lean in to hear each other talk, and it was kind of crowded so we didn't have much room.... but overall it was nice, I'll give it a 4 out of 5

    The service was incredibly poor. We had to almost scream at the waitress so she could hear us. We asked for a great chef, it was a birthday celebration. We got a lame chef who barely addressed us, did 3 lame tricks and kept dropping the utensils. (kind of scary those knives are sharp) The women next to us (with another group) was on her cell the whole time. The girl at the table beside us was jamming' on her headphones. We used to love Benihana. The class has been taken out and it is no longer worth the money. I could go on for days but I won't. It was just bad. We won't be back.

    Fantastic food as always. My husband and I brought our 2 year old with us for our anniversary dinner. Everything was great, except that they were very busy and added our sons high chair to a full table, so he ate behind us instead of being sat at the table. It made it hard for all of us to eat because we had to turn around to give him food and picking up things that fell on the floor because there was no table in front of him. Again, everything else was great and we will still be back.

    It was my first time in Benihana`s Teppanjaki,I think it is a good experience to try at least once. The Chef was great and knew what he was doing. The wine prize was ok, we had a white zinfandel from California . The cocktails list is short but really good. I didn`t like that to see the sushi menu you need to ask for it, they have a separate menu only with sushi.

  • An Expensive Novelty for the Kids
    Wally
    Dined on 8/23/2014
    Our 7-year-old daughter is the primary reason we dine here as often as we do. She enjoys the novelty of it all. As an adult, the novelty wore off long ago. Menu items are overpriced, and the routine performed by the cooks is cheesy and mundane (it has been the same routine ever since I can remember). I would almost liken it to an animatronic ride at Disney that repeats itself over and over all day long. Food is mediocre, and I always feel like I need to shower and wash my clothes when I get home to remove what can only be described as "Benihana stench". Lastly, if you're a small group, the additional guests assigned to your table could either make or break the night. We've sat with groups so loud we couldn't even hear ourselves chew.
