    Chef messed up and added spicy sauce to 3 peoples rice who did not ask for it, and then overcooked the steak and chicken to where it was not as pleasant as it usually is. Overall very tasty still, and a good dinner with friends. Just small areas we all can improve in. We will return soon. Thanks.

    It was the old lady’s birthday! I like to take her out for some good grub when she’s notchin another year on the ole belt. Well anyways, she likes to put the food bag on, so we headed it on to this Benjamin Hana place. This dude in a funny hat cooked our food on the grill right in front of us. He was flipping food all over the place. Pretty funny. Anyways, they had to call the cops on the table next to us. Some woman was yelling at the chef and her husband/boyfriend was trying to take his drinks outside. Highly recommend this place for the food and antics.

    Ben, our chef, was fantastic!! He truly made the experience for us. Cindy was pleasant and attentive. We were fortunate enough to be sat at a table with really nice people. My only issue was a table near us when the mother smacked her son on the head. I know it’s not a restaurant issue per say maybe just clientele. Overall we had a wonderful evening.
