Chef Wang is the BEST
Our chef, Mr. Wang, was wonderful and highly skilled. He did some "tricks" that I have never seen before. The best part was when he flipped a shrimp tail into my 11-year-old birthday girl's full glass of lemonade! That was hilarious! The food was expertly prepared with attention to detail. I've been going to Benihana's for years, and have never had such an enjoyable experience as this particular night. Everyone from our waiter, Drew, to the birthday singers, to the manager were delightful.

I always enjoy dining at BeniHana's
I always enjoy dining at BeniHana's as the food is always good, and you don't have to worry about it getting cold as it is served immediately after it is cooked.

Great Friday Night at Benihana!
We had a wonderful experience from start to finish. We had several folks who didn't show up so we squished around one table and the staff was very kind and appreciative. They were very attentive in every way to our group and made the PERFECT suggestions for appetizers. It was a great night. Thank you.

We don't live in Anchorage,
We don't live in Anchorage, but we went to the art museum there, and stopped by Benihana on our way home. We had a very nice cook, and our waitress was outstanding! She seemed well trained and very attentive. The food was delicious, and we are looking forward to returning for our birthday celebrations, again this year. Thank you for providing a nice family restaurant in Anchorage.

The chef, Israel, was great! Although he entertained us with the usual Benihana routine, I was more focused on the taste of the food. He did an excellent job of cooking as everything was well seasoned and cooked to order. When I come back, I'll be sure to ask for him.

Our kids loved watching the chef cook food in front of them. It was worth it to see the smiles on their faces!!!

Food was awesome. Service was good. I would definitely recommend it to family and friends.

Birthday Place to be
We had a great time at Benihana's for my daughter's 22nd celebration along with her kids. The noise and activity keep little ones mesmerized. My grandson had the most enjoyable dinner of us all :) thank you

Entertaining and great dining. Kids love it as well as adults.

Great for Special Occasions
Benihana's is not a typical restaurant. They do hibachi cooking right in front of you. Most of the meal time you are watching and being entertained by the chef cooking your food, which also makes for a rather noisy dinner as there are usually a couple tables around the restaurant with chefs cooking. If you are looking to be entertained and don't mind sharing a table with another party this is the place to go. We usually only go during birthday months when we have the Chef's table coupons, but lunch is very decently priced too.

Love going to this restaruant.
Love going to this restaruant. The only problem was this time we went they added the tip to the bill. Thats ok for a group of people but there was only the 2 of us. We like paying the tip with cash and not putting on the c.card. Took a couple times but finally removed it from the bill. Still a great place to eat. Great food.

Good Food Good Experience
I've been to Benihana several times and like always the food and service was superb. I recently heard complaints of scallops being cooked too long so I purposefully order the Land and Sea which comes with scallops. I found them to be cooked perfectly and everything was great. Benihana is best if you can go with 8 people so the table is filled with friends instead of strangers. But the food and service is always very good.

Always great food
Fun entertaining and enjoyable evening out with friends.

The food was very good and the chef was quite capable. My 3 year old granddaughter was very amused by the chef 's show! It is a little difficult to visit with your entire party as they are seated around the grill but we will definitely go to this restaurant again.

Always good food and good fun!
As always, the food was great and the cook was fun, even though he did not do the table dance he promise. We enjoy ourselves as usual.

The manager went so far above
The manager went so far above and beyond with one of our children that I don't know if he can even come here in the future and not be dissapointed :). She just went all out for him and the other children in our party that he will be asking to come back many times. Besides this the chef was great and interactive, the food was cooked fantastically and we will be back. We had a whole table booked and it was just a great evening. I love how the food comes straight off the grill to your plate served hot. The tuna couldn't be cooked better nor could the steak (get the filet instead of the standard beef it is worth the extra couple of dollars).
As always very good

All around fantastic!
We've brought our children in for birthday dinners. We've also done date nights on our own. Now we insist that friends go with us to enjoy show and food. Never disappointed in our experiences. Love everything about the dining experience.

Great to be back @ Benihana's!
It's been a while since we've visited our last Benihana grubfest was in Utah. Absolutely delicious and our chef Danny was entertaining for children and adults alike! Food selection is always wonderful and we enjoyed every course!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
wonderful evening with friends
New menu for us, fantastic selection of seafood, sushi and beef. The calamari, shrimp and scallops were grilled to perfection, not over done at all. Every one else had fillet mignon that they raved about. The Benihana rum punch was waaay too delicious and i wanted several more, had to settle for just one. Perfect blend of spirits and fruit juice. Cant wait to go back !

Needs more servers and chefs
On busy nights, they need to have a couple more servers and chefs. The wait was too long.

What a great way to celebrate a birthday with friends and family...wonderful and friendly staff, talented chefs, and incredibly delicious food

I have always had great food
I have always had great food and service when we come. Love the birthday coupons but wish you had one for anniversary also.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
The only restaurant besides fast food where you can take your child and be assured they will sit and eat. The show the chef's put on for you keeps the kids occupied.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was a nice expience good food, although it was cramped having to share a table with strangers. Not very kid friendly other than that we had a lot of fun, our chef was pretty cool
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall my experience here was pretty good. Good was tasty and the service was great.

It was our server's second day & he was quite slow so others helped out. The chef was great and the food was perfect.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Jonald was worth the wait!
Our reservation was for 6:30 and we were seated on time but for some reason tables that were seated after us were eating even before we were served drinks...
Once our chef arrived though our dinner was exceptional!
Jonald kept the grandkids entertained as well as prepared a wonderful meal.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sign up for your birthday coupon. Wonderful food and entertainment.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
They did an excellent job helping us celebrate the birthdays of 2 new teens. The staff was attentive to different dietary needs, as well as allergies. The chef kept the attention of all the children as well as the adults with his outstanding cooking abilities, and new spin ontable tricks. The server seemed over assigned, as we had to pile our own dishes through the meal with the chefs assistance. Also due to the birthdays happening at every table it made it difficult for the adults to converse at all.
