We celebrated my son’s 18th birthday. Benihana always has consistently delicious food and friendly staff. A family favorite for special occasions.

It took over an hour just from sitting down to the chef coming out to prepare the food... they also sat us a awfully close to another group. It did not seem Covid safe. And this location doesn’t have yum yum sauce either which was very disappointing

Had a birthday and celebrated late after 9pm, servers were switching constantly, they missed our birthday note, waited near 1.5 hours for a chef. Did not do the whole experience and was rushed due to closing time. Waited long periods for drinks and appetizers from the back kitchen as well

Our booking was at 6:30pm. We were seated at 7pm. The chef was at our table at 8pm. The other tables were served first before us even tho we were there earlier than them. Food wise is on the salty side but good. They said they didn’t have enough chef to accommodate their guests.

The experience is what you go for for sure, the food was honestly pretty disappointing. We added scallops to our meal and got extremely small over cooked scallops. Also the chicken said spicy and definitely wasn't. Our server was very nice, however was pretty absent. For the price I'd probably go elsewhere.

The restaurant only had 3 chefs cooking for 11 tables on a Friday night.Reservations were at 9pm our cook didn’t get to our table till 10:20pm and after when we ask for a bag to take our left over our server told us they didn’t have big enough bags for those trays most disrespectful thing I ever heard from a place will never go back even if they would give me a free year of food for free save your time go elsewhere

Where do I start, benihana Anaheim is mine and my boyfriends FAVORITE location. We use to go monthly. Today was just so disappointing. The food was not as good as usual. My rice was undercooked, the shrimp had an odd taste, veggies weren’t seasoned as well as it usually is. I hate to leave a bad review but for spending $140 I am BEYOND disappointed.

Not happy. Benihana advertised lunch special but when we got there they charged us dinner menu prices (150 vs $50)!!

Bait and switch at this location. Need OpenTable to file a complaint and get me refund.

Food was good but found the sauce for meat/chicken to be very watered down on this visit. Also miss the Birthday singing and free photo. Prices went up but food quality or QUANTITY didn’t change

We were so happy to get back inside Benihanas restaurant. It was our granddaughter’s 6th birthday, and this is her favorite restaurant. She has severe food allergies, and the chef always cooks her food safely without cross contamination.
Our server, Joanna, is the best we have ever had. This is the 2nd time Joanna was our server. She is excellent. Our drinks are always full, and her timing for getting our starters, soups, salads, desserts is perfect. Joanna is also very careful with serving our granddaughter, and making sure that the foods she is allergic to are kept away from her. Her personality is very upbeat and sweet, and we are grateful for her wonderful service. Thank You Joanna.

I was really disappointed in our visit. We've been there before COVID and it was really good before. They just opened for inside dining so we decided to check it out. When we got to our teppanyaki table, it was filthy. Still food from last session that was on the stove. I had to ask if they were going to clean and sanitize it before they served us.

When we got our beef gyoza appetizer is was not hot. It was lukewarm. Didn't seem like it was cooked to order. And the soup was also lukewarm, not at all hot.

Very disappointed in the overall visit.

Loved our experience except the wait time and we had reservations but overall a good experience since we got a deduction on the bill for it. Loved our waitress and they chef stepped up since he wasn’t initially our intended chef but it all worked out. Food was great, ambience was lively and the beer choice was unexpected in an awesome way! Deff will return, cheers!
