Took my daughter for her 18th Birthday! Benihana made it very special! Great place for young adults. Enjoyed everything about it the food ,sushi bar was great! It was real nice to have a drink in the bar and enjoying our food from the sushi bar before proceeding to the table. Food was excellent! We had friends and family in our party and the waitress(Karin) was awesome. she was so sweet and at the end of our visit she took pics and gave us copies which I thought was so special! It made the evening really memorable for our guest and my daughter that was a great extra! We will be back for the next family Birthday! Love Love Love Benihanas!!! This location is great!

Chef Ryan was amazing! Best ever!
We had an awesome dinner of Land & Sea and Teriyaki Steak and chicken fried rice. Wow, Chef Ryan cooked it ALL to perfection. We've been eating at Benihana's for 20 years and Ryan made by far the best dinner we've ever had there. Sometimes the chef's go to heavy with the butter and seasonings but Ryan created the perfect blend.
The service was impeccable and so friendly. We were there for my husband's birthday and they treated him like a king, brought him a birthday sundae and took our picture. We both felt very honored and also got to use a $30 off birthday coupon from Benihana's! Wow, Benihana's! You take the cake for generosity! No other restaurant we go to does that for birthdays!
Thank you so much, we'll be back again and again!!!

chef omar did a good job preparing the food and it was very good, the only thing this time was he put too much salt on the meat and the last time we went there, they did not put that much, next time we go please do not put too much salt on the meats, the cuts of meat are already good as it is. thank you

Nice birthday experience
Food was great as was the service. Prices were reasonable. Would recommend this to anyone.

My Grandfather's First Time
I visited Benihana with my Mother and Grandfather for a Friday night dinner. It was my grandfather's first visit to Benihana, to say he thouroughly enjoyed it, is an understatement. He is big on cooking, so he appreciated being able to view the preperation of the meal, and it did not hurt that the food was really great. I believe he will be back again :)

The chef is the show
While the food is uniformly very good, the real attraction is the chef - a good one makes the evening special and a mediocre one kind of defeats the purpose of this type of restaurant. Chef Andrew we had was both skilled and interactive with the group - made for a fun time. Prices are still pretty reasonable (they even had a special with filet mignon and chicken at $50 for two). A good time!

It's a great place EXCEPT
It's a great place EXCEPT for the noise level, which is loud.

It was my first time here! The food is tasty and chef put on a great show.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've been going to Benihana since I was little and I love it every time! Start your own tradition-the food & friendly atmosphere are amazing.

I had a great experience with my girlfriend. This restaurant always is a romantic place to go for a show and entertainment. Always exceptional food is prepared. I am not sure what happened to the waitress, so my girlfriend had to ask another waitress to help out since the other disappeared for awhile. I was impressed with the entertainment, such as, the chef balancing 2 eggs on top of each other and creating the letter "i" with a heart-shape and the letter "u" while using the eggs to make an arrow going through the heart. I will definitely come back to this restaurant. Most likely around the month of my girlfriend's birthday which is in October.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall, it was a good experience. We had fun. The only bad thing was that it took a long time for our chef to come out & start cooking. It took quite a while for our waiter to bring us salad & soup, and our bill/change.
Overall, it was good and fun for us. Yes, we'll have to do it again.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wow! Took my family here.. CHEF was AMAZING!!!! Great skills. Verrrryyy funny!! Very welcoming. Made my family have a great time :))
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Chef was amazing. We loved
The Chef was amazing. We loved that fact that the chef was Mexican. The chef explained to my mother in spanish how Benihannas works. He explained what is included with our dinner plate. Over all the server was good but not great. He lacked in giving us information. It was wonderful that he gave ius free ice cream. Im looking forward to coming back.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
CAME FOR MY WIFES BDAY AND MARCH AND RETURNED FOR MINE IN SEPTEMBER... SERVICE IMPECIBLE !!
FOOD THE BEST AND OUR CHEF JUNUS.... HE'S THE MAN ..... THANK YOU JUNUS FOR MAKING IT A SPECIAL AND FUN FILLED EVENING.!!!
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have wanted to go here for a while but could not justify the cost. Received a $30 off coupon which was just the push we needed. Took the whole family and were pleased to find that we had 3 bday's in Sept and could have used 3 coupons but only had one. So if this offer is still going on next year we will defiantly be making Benihana our annual birthday celebration.
The food was great my steak was amazing. The chef was very entertaining and the waitress was very friendly and right on task.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dinner was awesome and so was out cook and server... my family and I had a fantastic time!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great date night!
We arrived early for drinks at the lounge and were seated prior to our reservation time. Our chef, Victor, was funny, quick, and did all the tricks you hope for at Benihana. Food was good but I wish they had spicy sauces.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a great chef who took pride in his entertainment skills, and the service was awesome. Teppan style food is one of my families favorites and this Benihana's obviously cares about food presentation and service. Great job!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great show for mediocre food
The service great! Seated fairly quick. Once seated the waitress attended both parties pretty evenly. The food was delicious but felt that it was not worth the price. The high prices are probably from the quality of the food and how it's prepared for you. But I don't know I'm just a customer. But like how I told my party it's great for birthdays or celebration events but I much rather go to a fancy restaurant elsewhere where the same quality food is provided at a fraction of the cost at this location.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome food on this Benihana branch. We went here for my $30 Birthday Certificate and we were seated at the Teppan Table. The place were clean and the staff here are nice. Just be sure that you have to make a reservation before going here because of high volume of people.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
All about the chef
To me dinner at Benihana is all centered around your chef tonight he was engaging and entertaining as well as skillful in his meal preparation. All though not Asian Jose awesome of the best we have had there in Anaheim.
We will be back.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Benihana Birthday Fun
Celebrated a birthday with both adults and children. Great time and the food is always consistent. Good times.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Unfortunately we were two
Unfortunately we were two senior adults seated at a table with 4 kids who were very spirited. This was my birthday celebration and the kids did not belong to us. So needless to say, our table was over the top lively.
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun, fun, fun
Great service, good food, awesome green tea passion fruit and yummy desserts!
My friend and I are making Benihana's our annual birthday tradition! This makes it year number two.
The only negative thing is that it's very difficult to hear each other talk, but other than that, I was an A+ dinning experience!
We had the BEST service ever!
See you next year and thank you so much for our $30 birthday certificates and for our birthday pictures! What an awesome treat!!

Good Food & Service
The food was fresh especially the beef and shrimp. The chef is great, he cooked well and use moderate seasoning. Waiter is excellent and pleasant.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
My mom loved the experience! Her birthday was amazing.
10/18/2013 5:00:00 PM
Still the Best in Town
It's been over 50 years and Benihana is still going strong. The Saturday evenings are packed at each Tappan Table. Do yourself a favor and make reservations online before going. The food is still the best, mostly due to the freshness factor. They do cook right at your table, so be mindful of the hot stovetop. No really! Prices are a litte high, especialy if we compare the weekday lunch menu to the weekend dinner menu. Ouch! But the food and prices are second to the show. Watching your chef prepare the meals, one for everyone at the table. You might end up sitting with total strangers but tha't's half the fun. Meeting new peopel and talking about their travles to other Benihana Restaurants.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Made reservations for 8:30 , wasn't seated til a little after 9. Food, experience awesome. Presented 30$ off coupon then ordered a special. At the end of the night could not use the coupon. Would hav been nice to be told BEFORE. Ordering our food. Overall was good defiantly be back.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
For about 4 years now, my sister and I have been coming for our birthdays we are both in October and we get our $30 certificate. Now shes married and her husband is in October as well, so more to celebrate. We always have a good time and love the food! All the chefs are great! We love BENIHANA!
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time visiting Anaheim location, usually go to the Puente locaiton. This place is very clean and the staff are great. Far less waiting time then Puente and a bit smaller but the food is just as great and the service is outstanding.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food, Great Show
Fun atmosphere. Table available within a few minutes of our reservation. Daniela very attentive to our needs. Jose was an excellent chef and put on a fun show for all. Food expertly prepared and tailored to individual requests.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I love Benihana. We went here to celebrate his birthday. The people, servers and cooks are so friendly. We brought our 5 month baby and she loved the cook's presentation and enjoyed it.
10/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great Group Celebration place
Benihana's is always good: you have relatively healthy food along with the Chef's show. The communal seating is good for groups or general conversation. Kids enjoy and have their own meals/drinks. The chef's special can make it pretty darn affordable. Love their green iced tea!
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Yakisoba is Best!!!!!
Food was great. My mom was not a fan of this place. I took her a second time and she loved it. Her first experience was not so great. I asked her to give it a second chance and she loved it. Im a fan of it. I recommend it. Its just fun. :)
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place, bad luck
We have been to Benihana many times. The food is always good not great but it is the show you pay the money for. We find te Anaheim location has a difficult time getting quality chefs. This last time I think I could have done a better job. He wasn't able to do one trick well
Our chef also embarrassed another party at our table by telling him he looks like he has something in him. Asking him about his ethnic background that was obviously Hispanic. He also brought up religion saying he was an atheist. Never a good topic amongst strangers.
My 3 year old is always very excited to be there.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Excelent service, food,and ambience
I had an excelent moments at Benihana Restaurant! I was surprised for the show cooking our food in front of us. It was so delicious and tasteful. I eat scallops, I love scallops and the chef was bilingual, so it was better for me to comunicate with him in my native language (Spanish). The place is very clean and comfortable. It has ample parking. As soon I got there, they attended us right away. I was having a great time. I came from Long Beach, CA to Anaheim Benihana Restaurant.
Next month is my birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. I would like to return again to celebrate.
I highly recomend this place for special occassions or just if you want to enjoy excellente and delicious food, the food of Gods!!!!
So, I rate my lunch experiece outsatnding!
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a treat
We come here annually for a birthday celebration. The staff is friendly and the food is good. You get a lot of food for your money. The kids meals are expensive, but again, a lot of food.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Happy Birthday Michael
We came to Benihana's restaurant for our son's bday. It is his favorite restaurant. Our server Melissa K. was really great. She made my son feel very special on his birthday. Our chef Victor is the best! He cooks delicious food, exactly as you order it. His personality is fun also. When you go to Benihana, request Victor and Melissa. You will definately enjoy it!
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
fun birthday place
Benihana is a great experience, food is very good, very large portions, and it's just really neat to see the amazing chef prepare the food. It always makes me wonder if they cook like that at home. Go at least once in your lifetime, it's worth it. You never know who you'll have at your table, but if it's someone you're not thrilled with, you still spend more time with the chef and your own party to really notice. This Anaheim location is always very good. Make a reservation, it's a popular place.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
When we arrived at the restaurant there was no record of our reservation even though I provided them a copy with confirmation number.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Anne was Awesome!
Our waitress Anne was GREAT! She made us feel so comfortable. By fat this was the best time I've had at any Benihana restaurant I've ever visited. :) thank you!!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Love it all but slow to sit
Made reservations and arrived early, but had to wait until our reservation time to sit, even though the restaurant had many open seats when we first arrived. I hoped that we could sit as soon as we came since it was our first time trying this particular restaurant. After we sat, everything was what we wanted it and more. The service was excellent, the food was great, and the atmosphere and ambiance in general were very friendly and I would love to come back soon!! Can't wait to come back!
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
First Time Was Amazing!
Really great experience! Good show! Good Food! :) We had an incredible time and all the staff at Benihana made our 3 year anniversary really special! They gave us complimentary ice cream and took a photo of us, printed it, and gave it to us in a frame :) It was really a special experience! :)
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a great time! Took my one year old daughter for the first time and she loved it!
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always love it here
We love benihanas and have never had a bad experience. Took out of statue family there and it was enjoyed by all
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have been to a few benihana restaurants over the years Ave this location had by far the best tasting food! Steak was cooked to perfection. Seafood was bit overcooked but that was Ok. My favorite location for the chain by far!
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, excellent service
Great food, excellent service and show was great as well.
