Welcome to Benihana and a dining experience unlike any other! Our guests are seated at communal tables in groups, where your personal chef will perform the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Watch as we slice and dice, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well taste buds, whether you choose mouth-watering steak, tender chicken or succulent seafood. You can also enjoy sushi prepared by a talented sushi chef and indulge in a specialty cocktail. A visit to Benihana Dallas is like stepping into a Japanese country farmhouse among the bustle of the city. The restaurant is surrounded by a koi-filled lake. Guests cross a wooden bridge to the entrance and once inside, they are met with cordial greetings from the hosts. The restaurant consists of several smaller rooms which afford a sense of privacy; larger groups can opt for the four-table rooms located on either wing.

First time visiting, We didn’t get a whole lot of time to sit and look over the menu. Even though we arrived 15 mins early we were the last ones to be seated in our table therefore had to rush to pick items to order. We ordered an gyoza appetizer which came out after our soups and on top of that was cold. They were nice enough to take back and give us a fresh order. I know it’s a hibachi place but the chef was extremely messing and even cracked the eggs on our table and put it back on the food. Overall it wasn’t the best experience.

Outside entrance needs a LOT of work, get rid of the putrid pond.
Inside: great ambience, good food-prep entertainment

For my birthday! The grill was too hot for cooking the food. My chicken fried rice was burnt tasting and my scallops were undercooked but had charting on the outside. So if they were cooked they would’ve been burnt. Everything else was OK, but was disappointed with my food. Even with the $30 off the value of having over cooked food did not match.

Food was good and the ambiance was good. However, we waited for a chef for an hour or a little more and had to complain to management TWICE to get someone to our table to cook the food! We DID NOT appreciate that.

We have a hibachi restaurant in the town I live in and it is by far better. The service here was crappy and the floors looked they like havent been swept/vacuumed in weeks. I also found food in my drink.

It was my 20th year anniversary with my husband. I was extremely disappointed with the food. I ordered the splash and meadow. I requested that the steak be medium rare however is was well done. The waitress appeared to only really wait and check on the other guest at the table and I had to get her attention to re-order a drink. My husband asked me not to make a big deal of it do to our anniversary. I will not be back to this location.

The service was just ok, the chef didn't have a lot of showmanship. We requested no sesame seeds on my husband's food since he has Crohn's disease. He put them on the food anyway. We were not offered any hot green tea after our meal.

I went for my Birthday for the first time ever and it was disappointing. The food was great! Definitely up to par w/ absolutely no complaints. My disappointment came from the fact that even though the reservation was for my Birthday they didn't pay attention to that, we almost didn't get our ice cream when it was over. It was as if they were already done for the night. I did get my Birthday sound after my son requested they sing to his mommy. However, it's usually a glorious experience and I guess I expected a lil to much for my Birthday. 🤷🏾‍♀️

We have been going here since Benihana opened in Dallas. We have always loved the food and most of the service. The menus change over time, but the very difficult way to find the pricing seems out of character for this restaurant. It is virtually hidden with no dollar signs. What's the deal?

The food was great and our server was amazing but a bit slow. It took too long for her to return with everything and especially at the end we had a to go order and she she did not put in until we asked for the check so we had to wait around for the food and her to return with my credit card. Overall dinner. was good.

My husband and I took my brother and his wife to celebrate my brother’s birthday. He was not sure about going to a Japanese grill, but he loved it. My husband and I have always been pleased with the service and the quality of the food; but we can never eat it all, because the servings are quite generous. The chef gave us a good show, and the server was very attentive.

We went last night for our daughters 14th bday with our family. We had a table of 8 so you can imagine we spent $300. It was by far the worst hibachi chef we have ever had. Food was decent but overall we were disappointed and in the past this had been our go-to place for special occasions, no longer

We have been here a number of times and have always enjoyed the food and entertainment. On this visit, the "entertainment" was lackluster and some of the food was too. The proteins were tasty, but slightly under cooked, the fried rice was overcooked with blackened ends on it and extremely bland. If it wasn't for the birthday promotion, we would feel that we way over paid for a mediocre meal and experience at best.

Been there enough that the show portion is old, old, old. Took my grandmother there in the 1990s and saw the same routine this week. Wish they would change it up. The food was good but the fried rice and vegetables were scorched, luckily the steak and lobster were perfect. The birthday coupon was a great deal.

We love Benihana! However, this time, the server Angel, though was nice, served our food way too fast and all at once- he brought both salad & soup at the same time, and immediately brought out our appetizers, so we had too much food at once and the table got crowded. Likewise, the chef cooked our food so fast. In all, we felt rushed to eat. Dining there should be a fun and relaxing experience. It was my sister's first time there.

Service was average, felt we were rushed through soup and salad. Our chef, while he put on an interesting show handling utensils at first, failed to provide the level of expertise we expected. Finally, this particular restaurant is becoming somewhat threadbare and could use an update.
