Our waitress Joanna was very attentive and hard working. Adrian our cook was cool and made a delicious meal.

I have noticed the good portions are getting smaller.

Excellent food and wonderful chef! BUT very very very noisy! Too noisy to make conversation with the others at our table who were SOOO close to us.... very crowded on the side of the table! Bathrooms were very neglected , out of soap (front desk said OUT completely!!) and toilet paper !!! Waitress just seemed robotic. Rush rush rush!

Chef was sloppy. Bites too big to eat wo a knife. Food flew everywhere. Did not recv appetizers until mid meal. Crazy busy. Noisy. Waiter was polite. Front staff not friendly. They need smiling and hospitality training. Bigger tables needed. Not enough space to eat.

Had a reservation however we were not seated until 30 minutes later. Sat i. The way back and it was too crowded. Manager could have come by and said something but did not. I don’t think the area in the back is safe.

The food was amazing and the chef did a few extra tricks besides the awesome rice beating heart and onion choo-choo train. Enjoyed our meal, tea and family picture. We will be back for sure!

Our Chief was awesome, Kapono was very friendly and although we have been to Benihana many times, he explained the the "newbies" how service worked. He was very personable and
would ask to sit where he would be cooking in the future is possible!!

We have given this location three attempts to hopefully erase each preceding poor visit. Each time we have made a reservation, we haven’t been sat until a minimum of 30 minutes after our reserved time. This most recent visit, we were stuffed at a table with 8 other people, making it a total of nine at one table. Now that’d be acceptable, if we were the same party, but it’s kind of hard to enjoy your experience and you’re elbow to elbow with a complete stranger the whole time. Now the service, I’ll be brief. HORRIBLE. Slow, incorrect orders received, and overall uninviting. If you don’t enjoy taking orders and making sure peoples drinks aren’t empty then for the love of god do not become a server. If you get KEVIN, run.

The wait was too long even with a reservation. It look one hour to be seated.
After being seated, it look over 30 minutes for the chef to come to our table.
They were understaffed with only 3 tables being used. The other tables were empty and not being used.
The birthday picture or dessert was not offered.
We were there 2.5 hours which affected our work schedule.
Very very disappointed

We were very disappointed in the service. We waited for a table, waited for our drinks, waited for our chef, and waited for our bill. We were there for three hours. Unacceptable!

We LOVE Anaheim Benihanas although we are closer to Downey. However this past Sunday we went for early Valentine's Day and the family across from us were very obnoxious. The husband permitted his kids to scream at the top of their lungs, the wife was not permitted to say anything, the 1 and 2 Year olds were spilling their drinks on the floor, throwing ice. Chef Garcia (poor thing) had to accommodate the man as he specifically didn't want his food to touch ours. I understand we cannot change seats just because of noisy kids or rude people but if the staff is well aware of what's happening at the table, then "we" should have been asked if we wanted to move... or say something to the guests causing the disturbance. I'll go back again but hopefully the manager can take initiative if this should arise again. We paid good money only to end up dissapointed.
