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.

We had a reservation for 6:45, arrived on time and had young children (1, 5, 6, and 7 year olds) and did not get seated until almost 7:45, with multiple other tables sat before us while we waited, then did not have anyone come to our table for another 10 minutes to get a drink order. The manager never came to our table to check in on us and the hosts were not apologetic at all.

A very poor and rude Asian service waitress at my table. The old timer, knows me for years.
Soup was dark brown, not fresh looking and she brought the salad dressing in a to go plastic container!
This not her 1st !
That is one reason I stopped eating at Dallas Location.
That place is also warned out!

The waitress- attentive to other group even smiling across from me!
Never asked me for my order and planned to walk off, after taking to the group across.
Had to stop her!
She stood one leg out of the room, when talking to her about the order!
What is she doing there?

Dining out supposed to be a pleasant experience sine I pay for it.
She was never around despite a very nice chef, who received a big tip from me.

Had to asked the busboy twice to call her to bring my streamed rice for my Chateaubriand steak after she was told to that in the beginning, and she was not around to even the check. Waited 30 minutes for my rice! A basic staple.

I dine in Dallas and Plano locations regularly for years.

In the last year I dine in Plano location, since Dallas is overcrowded at the tables affecting table across where I sit.
First of all during Covid, vaccinated or not.

12 people at the tables for 10! Too congested and too loud for other patrons. Tables seemed warned out,
2 sets of guests within 1 HR next to my table!
Too small rooms for such large crowds the way the old restaurant is designed.

The rude chef next table cooking for 12 of them was placing their dirty dishes in front of me from the big group table, while I was dining. About 8:00 PM

I am 64 year old professional and sponsor Benihana on a regular basis,
Always order the most expansive items on the menu nd buy $200 certificates prepaying 2 months in advance.

At the current status of events there what is happening there I would never recommend that location to anyone and I do know many people in health industry near by.

As you can see historically in the last year I dine in Plano.

Came this evening for a graduation celebration. The chef did not add butter as usual to the rice. Also questioned as to why my friend wanted the garlic butter with ChateauBriand. Otherwise great meal.

Overall, the best part was the food. Waiting inside for a table was terrible. It was very hot by the front door and musty. You wait for your table by the restrooms. When we were seated at our table, the room was not clean much less sanitized. The floor under the table was very sticky and slippery. The whole place could use a coat of paint. For the price of the food and compared to the other place I have been in Miami, this was not worth the money paid. The chef was entertaining and the food was tasty. Our children wanted chicken tempura and they didn’t get their meals until we were almost done eating. Timing could have been better.

Our table side chef was impressive and so funny. The food was beyond delicious! My favorite dish is the chicken fried rice, but the steak was butter soft and seasoned to perfection. I will go there again, especially for family events.

Valet was rude.
Had reservations at 7:45 and still had to wait 15 min and hostess didn’t offer for us to sit in bar and have drinks or anything welcoming.
Then the entire dinner felt rushed and before I could finish my meal the waitress was handing out take home boxes to everyone hinting they were ready for us to go.
Then we never got chicken with the chicken beef combo and mentioned it at the end at check and they offered to cook chicken once we were already done and packed up or refund. I said refund which was $10 off the hefty check of $93 for two people
One meal and one sushi entree.
So I won’t recommend this, paying for the name but the quality of the service has gone way down.

The food and waitress were amazing. They did a whole show and it was very appreciated. However, even with a reservation, we had to wait almost 30 minutes to be seated and when we arrived the rude host was like well we need your whole party to be here, my mom and brother were walking to the door... and now that the 9 of us where there she's like well I still don't have a table for you guys. We had a baby and 2 small children and waiting without being entertain is not the easiest thing to do. Anyways, horrible host for a Monday morning and kill the mood for our celebration for no reason.

“Charlie” took 45 minutes to show up after our soup/salad. He make the food wrong and when told he forgot vegetables in our rice he tossed the veggies on the grill flinging the vegetables towards me. The other couple with us took this as the last straw and went to the manager. My medium rare meat was rare edible but still not what I’ve had before. My daughter didn’t get her corn with her kids meal. At that point I was done with the experience. I will go back but will request NOT to have Charlie. The hostess kept apologizing saying he is slow. The manager told the other couple that it was a large order. I’ve had larger orders that didn’t take over an hour to prepare to be cooked.

The waiter forgot about us - we literally sat for 40 minutes without refills or him checking on us. When we complained to someone else, she responded with "he is very busy." We won't be going back anytime soon.

It was a good birthday dinner, we enjoyed it and were well treated. The food was amazing definitely recommended the Benihana Trio it Teriyaki Chicken!
I will say the only down fall was it took forever to get started especially for a week day we were seated waiting for about 30-40 mins. But they cook was wonderful. So we enjoy the time either way
