Great food and great hibachi
Great food and great hibachi experience. The only negative note that I have was the fact that our chef seemed a little distracted and not fully into the food preparation. Part of the experience of hibachi is interacting with the chef so this was a little disappointing.

We really enjoyed our visit
We really enjoyed our visit to Benihana. There was a mix up on who was assigned our table to wait on, so there was a delay in getting initial service to our table. The waitress and the manager provided us with complimentary appetizers and put a rush on our order to make up for the delay.

Had a very nice experience
Had a very nice experience at Benihana. We were lucky to have a great waitress and chef. Table next to us had chef who looked very clumsy, so glad we did not experience that.
Food was better than other hibachi restaurants we have been to.

A Benihana is a Benihana right?
A Benihana is a Benihana right? This one is bigger & nicer than any I've been to. Great mixed drinks, better than average beer selection, prompt service, friendly staff. Even the manager asked us how everything went. Chef was good, funny, but might need more practice for the flashy tricks. Lobster was the best I've had in a long time.

I would prefer more vegetables
I would prefer more vegetables with meal entrees and the Chicken rice was very good but the server never told us that there was an extra charge of $3.25 / person. That should be explained before the bill comes.

My family and I were at Benihana's
My family and I were at Benihana's celebratiing our son's 14th birthday and we had a fabulous time! Great food, pricy but worth it!

We had Josh as a chef. He was great. Food was great. However, menu was very pricey!!! I spent 135 for dinner, I hardly consider the food tasting good enough to be that costly.
It would also help for the hostesses to be a lot nicer. We had a 6pm reservation, I ran late but my friend checked in. When I got there 15 minutes late, the hostess hadn't even checked off "on the board" that my friend was waiting at the bar. The system to seat people needs adjusting, and the people that are doing the hostessing need to be empathetic and service oriented.

The food was amazing just wish the chef would interact with the customer more. Was so looking forward to trying to catch some food in my mouth. Besides that everything was great.

Changed our reservation time
Changed our reservation time last minute and the restaurant was able to accommodate us without any problem. Service was a little slow due mainly to the fact that all the hibachi chefs were busy cooking for other tables. We were compensated however with appetizers while we waited. Very well prepared meal. Better to go with a group if you want the hibachi atmosphere. Overall great experience.

Kids thought it was the greatest
We went for Mothers day. Everything was great but we had a hard time understanding the waitress due to her accent and the background noise. The food quality was great and eating it as soon as it is cooked is always enjoyable.

Food was great and great for
Food was great and great for kids!! My kids are picky eaters, but because they got to experience a show, they enjoyed their food and ate everything up!! It was nice for my husband and I too! Stress free... Even with other guests we did not know sitting with us.

Not a flash in the pan
This was our second time at your restaurant in the last 6 weeks for a special occasion and we were not disappointed once again. The staff and their attention to detail helped make the night memorable and fun. The food is fresh and tastes great. We will continue to tell our friends about this experience..

My husband loves Benihana and so do my children. The entertainment is enough to go see, however the food is also always very good. It is a treat for us to go get hibachi and sushi. There is always something on the menu everyone likes.

We always enjoy Benihana.
We always enjoy Benihana. Our chef seemed to be new though and started cooking our meal prior to us receiving our appetizers. In addition, he only cooked one persons one item at a time. My son waited until his full meal was on his plate at which point the beginning food was cold. You had to eat each single item when he cooked it so it was hot, otherwise you had to wait until he got around to the next item on each persons order. The food itself was good and is usually consistent.

I was there as a guest for my Birthday , As my table of new friends and I waited for our cook, there were other"s who were receiveing their Birthday songs, however after my meal no one came to help Louis (who was my waiter ) sing to me I was told that all the teams were busy. I found that insulting and obvious being that I am african american , and all the others were caucaisians , coincident maybe , but I felt not too special for the durations of my waiter trying to get a team to help him sing to me , those minutes gave me a whole new perspective on Benihanna's service caterings, BQ

Free Birthday Photo!
Two of my friends had never been to Benihana's and they loved the wonderful food! We were celebrating a birthday. They were so surprised when the staff took our picture and then gave the birthday girl a framed picture! What a nice touch!
However, my husband told our 3 children that I went to Benihana's and they were mad! They started discussing when was the last time they got to go and did not like it that I went without them!
For family birthday's the kids get to pick what restaurant they want to go to, and they usually pick Benihana's.
If you sign up to be on their email list, they will send you a birthday coupon for $30!!!!
We were very pleased with our evening experience. (I knew they would love it!) Money well spent. :0)

went there on aug 3rd and had a great time. waiter must have been new because did not know most of the drinks on the list. Other than that great experience. I would recommend it to anyone.

Great experience, food was okay
Great experience, our habachi chef and server were spectacular food not so much it wasn't worth the price but definitely something you should experience once.

We are teppanyaki fans and Benihana's never fails to deliver. Entertaining and delicious! The sushi is also top notch.

Good food, great Saki
If you are going to Brnihana for a gourmet meal, don't.
Its good food, good sushi, great Saki. The service is better than the Cherry Hill location, and the kids had a blast with the entire cooking in front of them.
Great family place more than anything else.

Great place for celebrations. I have been going to Hibachi restaurants for my birthday since I was 16. My daughters choice for her 25th birthday was to come Benihana. We appreciate your being able to accommodate the Gluten Free needs of our family.
8/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
My friends and I always designate a Friday to meet up and have dinner. This was the perfect spot for us to catch up, eat good food, and enjoy a great performance from the chef. The service is great. I would definitely go back with family sometime.

Seated immediately, great service, friendly atmosphere, food was excellent! Seating at tables is tight. Cooks waitress extremely friendly and professional.

They truly made my sisters birthday fun and special. I like that they even took the birthday girls picture with their own camera and came back five minutes later with a printed photo in a frame....It was a special touch that put the food and the waitstaff and the chefs and the whole experience at the top of my list. Every piece of this was great!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Chefs make this place fun
Most of the food was good, however, the scallops were very very well done and rubbery. It also took a long time to get things moving. Shouldn't take 40 min to get your salad. Once the chef came to our area things moved quicker. Our family had a great time.

Good spot for special occasions.
While it a little pricey, it is good for special occasions, especially for young (4+) children. Good menu choices and healthy options as well.

Fun for a Change of Venue
We love to go to Benihana when we are bored with everything else. It's a fun atmosphere and great for celebrations and groups. Highly recommend it when you need to add a little excitement to your life.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good as usual
We frequent this Beni Hana often. It is clean, the staff courteous, the cooks well trained, and the food great tasting. On this night the maki rolls were put together really badly (I mean, the worst I've ever seen), but it didn't really tak

I enjoyed the food and also I like them cooking right in front of me.

Great food again
The food and service are always great - fun place to go.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great weeknight out with the kids!
As a return customer, and a single mother of 4, this was my 1st family experience here and it was TERRIFIC! A rainy Thursday night ended with full bellies, terrific service & many laughs shared! Thank you Benihana...we will be back :)

Hibachi very good but hostess issue
We had been going somewhat regularly and had very good service and food. We really think their Hibachi is the best in the area. However, the hostess this time was very rude and condescending. I asked at one point to see a manager but none came by. I was very surprised. I will return, and see what happens next time.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our server was knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. I was there with a group of friends, but would return with my family.

Kevin's Birthday Dinner
This was our first dining experience at Benihana, however, it wasn't our first time at a Hibachi restaurant. The food was excellent. Our chef was pleasant but for us a large part of the experience is the entertainment by the chef while preparing the food which unfortunately was greatly lacking. There was no back and forth other than to double check our selections. This was rather disappointing, especially for the price of dinner.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
I came to Benihana in Plymouth Meeting for a birthday dinner for my dad.
I had done hibachi style dining before but haven't been to Benihana in a while. There was a great variety of entree choices and the service was great. The chef put on a nice show and had my 6 year old's attention going. The food was good. Not great but good. The only diappointing thing I have to say about this place was that the dressing on the salad was not good. It tasted too salty. If there was ginger in it, I did not taste it at all. The fried rice was phenomenal. I could eat that stuff all day.

A good dinner
Our granddaughter loves this restaurant. Meal prep on the table always enchants.
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent as usual
I have eaten at many Benihanas and have always had a consistently delicious and entertaining time. The wait staff here were particularly attentive.
