A word from Benihana - Westbury
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.Continued

  • "I took my 3 kids ages 15, 13 and 8 as well as my sister and her son there on Monday night. Needless to say we had an awesome time. Our chef Jesus was excellent and the food was great. My kids are already asking to come back with their friends. Thank you for a fantabulous dining experience."

  • "It's definitely a fun place for a group celebration! Took my little 5 y.o. to celebrate his birthday in a " grown up" place. He loved it!"

  • "I recently went to Benihana for my birthday and to use the Chefs Table birthday gift certificate. When receiving my bill I noticed only 16 dollars was taken off. Confused I called my waiter over who rudely said that the manager would be over to explain the bill. After several minutes of waiting, I went to find the manager myself. He was very rude/disrespectful and had the audacity to claim that I did not order my meal and that I ordered something else on the check. Even after countless times of explaining what I ordered he would not fully honor the gift certificate. I am astounded of the level of incompetence at the Benihana in Westbury. I have never been treated so rudely and especially on my birthday a day that is suppose to be joyous."

  • "We had reservations was there on time and still didn't get seated for twenty minutes. Not sure what the point was to make reservations when people who just walked in got seated along with us. The food was very good and the chef cooking was energetic and entertaining. Our waiter was slow and we had to track him down for refills on drinks. We were celebrating an anniversary and the staff came and sang a song for us and gave us a bowl of ice cream with a candle to blow out, a very nice gesture! We also got a keepsake photo which is great! Overall it was a good experience and an enjoyable night out."

  • "I love the hibachi dining experience. It's social, fun and energetic. The food is cooked in front of you...fresh off of the grill. A great place to take your kids, celebrate a special occasion, or for a fun date. It's never dull and the food choices are endless."

  • "Food is reliable fare. Nice little "show" put on table-side while your food is being prepared. However, more place settings at the tables make for a crowded shoulder to shoulder feeling (our table for 12 was tight). The meal would have bee much more comfortable if there was just a little "elbow room"."

  • "Never again will we visit this place. You have to keep getting up to find your waiter, they never get the food order correct but are willing to charge you the price for what you asked for. That's great if you actually get it!! They let the plates pile up and you really want to toss them at the waiters' head! Don't waste your money."

  • "I frequent this particular Benihana because of both the food and location. Unfortunately, every time we go we are seated at tables of twelve. My husband is tall and 225lbs, by no means obese, but he takes up space and every time we go we get squished at a table with other people. Have some consideration that not all patrons are rail thin and deserve a comfortable dining space, not sitting on top of one another, much less strangers. When I mentioned this to the manager, or whoever the man in charge was, he told me that the tables are equipped to seat twelve. Twelve smaller people, not twelve grown men and pregnant women (me)."

  • "Overall the food was very good, Chef Santos was very entertaining cooked food to perfection. Told the server about being there for 2 birthdays, but they never did anything for them. No dessert even thought the meal was to come with it. (we were having cake at home anyway so no big deal for us) Biggest negative was we had to wait 1/2 hour for our table even though we had a reservation and arrived 5 minutes early. I would still recommend the resturant and go again."

  • "You'd think when you're paying $35 a plate the service would be better. We went for a birthday and our hostess was unfriendly, our waitress wasn't friendly. Our chef was great he was entertaining but you'd think they'd ask if you want water when you sit? You're rushed to give your order. We got a bottle of white wine it was set on the hot table we had to ask for it to be kept chilled. Asked the chef for a special sauce he said that had to be ordered from a server but we didn't see ours again until the end of the meal. Didn't refill sodas, and at the end we were rushed to finish so they could turn the table. Poor experience for pretty good food, Not good for special occasions as you're rushed out and have no time to spend with your party."

  • "Promised my wife we could use the $50 rebate card from the phone for a Japanese Steak House. When I saw a local Benihana I knew that was just the place. Had always heard it was good but had not tried personally. We had an excellent meal. the tuna steak I had melted in my mouth and was very special. My wife had Hibachi Steak, which even overdone a tad was otherwise all she expected, flavorful and savory. Overall it as a great experience an though the chef was a bit quite he put on a really good show also."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Food is good! Ingredients are fresh. Quality depends on the chef. If you are lucky and have a good chef, you will get extraordinary meals. One little comment is table matching, they could be more thoughtful to arrange family with kids together. We were stuck with a group of young people who didn't pay much attention to using slang and foul language. Otherwise, it's a good experience!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "First time dining there. The food was delicious but came just a bit slow. The preparer could have explained a little bit that this appetizer is being prepared and served to everyone after the soup and salad. Then the rice came. I would have held off eating it not realizing that it was part of my main course which was shrimp which I would up eating separately (alone!) BUT...was very delicious and pletiful. I was full when I left. Thank you."

  • "My wife and I had the Splash and Meadow selection. The selection consisted of soup, salad, shrimp, steak and tea. The quantity of food was very generous and the quality was very good. The price was very reasonable for what we got. I would definitely recommend Benihana."

  • "Good hibach experience. Chefs seem to take their time cooking rather than the normal fast pace I've seen at other long island hibachis. Food was really great. Hibachi menu bigger than most other hibachis. Not just your normal options. Not as much showmanship as I am used to seeing at hibachi restaurants. No fire lighting up the room. No sake flowing across the table. No vegetables being thrown for you to catch in your mouth. Minimal interaction compared to other restaurants, although sometimes it can be cheesy I have come to expect that type of performance at hibachi. Will return when in area. But definitely better ones on long island."

  • "We always celebrate our family birthdays at Benihanas. The kids love the food and the show the chef's put on. I have had several pieces from their sushi menu and have found it to be very good. Their wine list has a nice variety and I always leave stuffed. Can't wait to go back for my husband's birthday."

  • "I'm not sure if i'm just not a huge fan of hibachi, or if this place was overhyped, but i was not impressed. The food was tasteless, it was very crowded and noisy, and the seating arrangements made it hard to speak to all my friends. Overall, i'm glad i tried it once because i had heard good things and was curious, but won't be coming back again on my own."

(Just a little note when they ask you white rice or fried rice, they mean chicken fried rice; which is extra). It is a very family fun environment."
