    Gave 2 stars because the food was good, however the service was horrendous. I get that the service industry jobs are hard to fill, not enough resources, but basic customer service training and skills are lacking at this establishment.

    The food was great. The cook was great. The biggest thing was that we set a reservation for 8pm and didn’t get seated until 8:40pm. It took awhile to actually get the food cooking. In the meantime we were sitting twiddling our thumbs. The staff was great, very nice. Just the wait was the opportunity.

    We celebrated a birthday and let me tell you, Shizuka was amazing! We have been to Benihana’s many times but this one really stood out to us because of the service. She was very attentive, funny and engaging. I’m not sure if we can but in the future we will definitely be requesting her as a server again!! Thanks for making it such a memorable experience .

    Josh and Alex were great as our server and chef!! We were celebrating my son’s 22nd birthday. My family had an amazing time. Half of them it was their first time going to Benihana’s. The others have been to similar restaurants. As of this afternoon we are all still talking about this amazing experience, food and all of the jokes. Thank you so much!!

    We went for a birthday. There were two in our party. The birthday-girl had a pretty good time, but I only got one of the three different sushi rolls that I ordered and my appetizer never came. Our server didn’t stop by until the end of the meal, so I didn’t find out that I wasn’t getting any food until right before the ice cream came out.

    We chose Benihana- Chandler location to celebrate my daughter's 30th birthday because we've been there on several occasions and never encountered a bad experience. We especially enjoy the chefs' interaction and professionalism..which is expected at a teppanyaki table experience, right?!?!? Unfortunately, we had our first bad experience last Sunday. Our chef was everything but happy. He didn't interact much..the only interaction was his complaining about the other table he had just cooked for and going on with complaining about his job and management; how dissatisfied he was with the management., etc. We heard about his being there for over 4 years and new hires are coming in making more money then him. I was so bothered by this that I was forced to call and speak with his manager.

    Glad I celebrated my bday there. The server you can tell was new. He forgot bowls and other things. He took the birthday picture to close or had the zoom way up. But he was kind and friendly. I felt rushed to get out at times. The chef was great and his communication skills were awesome I will be back for my bday next year

    I have been going to Benihana for more than 40 years and more recently I have noticed that the prices have been increasing and the size of portions have gotten smaller. The past three visits the wait staff have been very slow to return to the table for drink refills or additional service items. I’m becoming very disenchanted with them and considering on picking a different venue for future events and regular dining.

    Love Benihana! But lunch menu is better value, especially for my husband and I. Smaller portions and combined flavor varieties. And certainly price is a bit less. Love the food and entertainment as we are assured of our food prepared. But I will stick to lunchtime visits

    The place was not clean….from the lobby, menus, to the chairs to the actual actual cook top. We actually took cleaner chairs from a near by table to sit on. Our menus pages were stuck together and there was actual old oil ( I think it was cooking oil ) that was left on the grill when we sat down. Terrible! My wife did not want to get up and leave so we stayed.

    When we walked in the front door I noticed how dirty the windows and floors were. Things didn’t get better, there was food and grime on the walls and floor behind the cook station we were seated at, our plates and silverware weren’t clean either. Everywhere you looked it was filthy. Our server reminded us when she left the check that the tip has to be split several ways, chef, waitress, sushi bar and bar. Lucky I left a tip. We hadn’t been here in years and won’t visit again.
