    Our Chef was very slow. Although it is possible he was new, he took a lot of care with everything. The meat and veggies were left on the cooktop too long and so everything tasted a bit charred when it finally made it to our plate. The whole experience from start to finish was about 2 hours and we weren’t hungry by the time that we got our food. The meal was about $190 for the 3 of us and the thing we all agreed on was that the rainbow sherbet was the best part. We could buy that at the grocery store. Bummer. We were really excited for the meal and wanted it to be really good.

    The spicy chicken is amazing. Our waiter was not amazing. He spilled my salad, never filled my water cup, didn’t do the usual birthday celebration for my daughter, charged me for other patrons food, forgot forks, forgot steamed rice. He kind of ruined it for me unfortunately. It was just a very frustrating situation. Also, the cook seemed so tired and overworked. I felt bad for him. He did a great job though and our food tasted amazing

    We normally go to Benihana to celebrate birthdays and other occasions. We have eaten at this location four or five times with two of the last five times including our last visit were unacceptable. There was a group of 15 or 16 teenagers at the table behind us who were screaming, yelling profanities, pounding the table, playing drinking games, and there was no adult supervision from Benihana management. We will not go back to this location again

    As Benihana patrons for over 48 years in multiple locations, we continue to love the fun, food and entertainment. It is especially nice when you are traveling, for work or vacation, to go the Benihana. The open table allows you to meet other people, celebrate special occasions, and be entertained over great food! It quickly became a family tradition for all yearly events no matter where we were at that time. And it's always fun to look back at all the Benihana pictures from all those years. We can honestly say that the food is always consistent and delicious no matter which Benihana location we went to, even abroad. Domo Arigato! Especially for the Chandler location!

    It was my husband‘s birthday. Really, it was, so we really wanted something special. Food was delicious. A little disappointed that the chef did not do the old shrimp in the chef hat trick, the onion “choo-choo train” left a lot to be desired. After meal, server was slow issuing the check. Overall, we had a very nice enjoyable meal.

    Other than the filet, the food was sub par and packaged food. Nothing was fresh. For the price, will not come back again. Could not even understand the host preparing the food as his accent was so thick. Bright spot was our server. She kept the drinks coming and checked on us often.

    The waitress had several mistakes when taking orders and providing the bills. Several people did not get what they ordered. The chef over seasoned everything. He burnt the shrimp and the lobster was over cooked and inedible. We have come to expect a high level of service and quality from Benihana’s but the past few visits especially this one have shown a rapid decline in all aspects for this restaurant.

    We chose Benihana's for my Mothers birthday dinner and we were expecting to have a great experience. When we arrived the older woman at the front desk was INCREDIBLY rude and was giving very dirty looks to my family and other guest waiting on there tables. We had a reservation and there was still no table ready for us when we arrived. We waited about 25 minutes despite reserving a table. The only good experience we had was our server, a young black lady with a shorter style hair cut. She was working very hard to take care of us, repeatedly refilled our sodas and waters, took our dirty plates, and brought us everything we needed with a happy attitude even though she was taking care of many other tables. She was an AMAZING server. However, when our chef came to greet us he was also very rude. He was snappy and had a bad attitude when we asked for more sauce. He was not entertaining like other chefs and made the food poorly. Considering the amount we spent on each plate, the food should have been better. It was under seasoned and poorly made. The chef was also coughing while making the food and visibly sweating. A better experience should be given with the price of everything. The overall experience was terrible and not worth the money. I would not return to this location and I would not recommend it to a friend. The knockoff hibachi places are way better! Never again! -Lillianna Diaz 6194956903

    Chef Matt was personable and entertaining, but the quality of the food isn't what it used to be. Chicken in chicken fried rice had fat in it. Too much. Steak was chewy and had NO flavor. Had to add garlic, twice. Chicken was very dry and did not eat it! Unhappy dining experience.

    Our server, Pamela, was sweet and exceptionally efficient, checking on the entire table numerous times to make sure drinks weren't getting dry (not a fan of having to twist my neck to make eye contact for another beer). The hibachi chef Jong was a character, as expected after a number of visits to Benihana, and a talented one, not necessarily always the case. Will I be back? You bet your bootay I will!

    We were there to celebrate a birthday... and enjoy a family dinner. We were blown away by the amazing service from the start. The bartender, Amelia came out and welcomed us and took our drink orders because our server was finishing up with another table. Amelia was very patient and helpful with making suggestions and dealing with a crazy table of 8 & a toddler. Jamie was our server and once she came over, we knew we had a good one! She fit right in with our silly group and was AMAZINGLY patient and on top of drink refills, clearing dishes and finding a way to stop a mild tantrum from the 2 1/2 year old. Maui was our chef and he was AWESOME. He took good care of the entire group and kept us very entertained. Whenever we go back... we will definitely ask to be in their section again. They were Great!
