Welcome to Benihana and a dining experience unlike any other! If you are a Chef's Tale member celebrating a birthday, please remember that you MUST print your birthday certificate prior to celebrating at Benihana.

Benihana Ontario is located near the intersection of I-10 and the 215 freeway, five minutes from Ontario International Airport, the Ontario Convention Center and Citizen’s Bank entertainment arena. The restaurant was designed to mimic the azekura-style, reminiscent of a Japanese country storehouse. An 18% service charge is added to all guest checks for parties of eight or more.

From the time we arrived the staff was amazing. My party was running late and the staff was patient, understanding and very helpful. The place was clean, social distancing guidelines were followed, food was amazing that even my very picky 9 year old ate it, staff was incredible and funny. We will definitely be back soon.

The seafood didn't taste as fresh as it normally is. Felt rushed. Was in and out within an hour. Was still eating when the bill was presented.

The price for the entrees were unreasonably high for the flavor and quantity of the food. , I had the NY steak dinner with onions, zucchini and mushrooms, after the soup and salad. The rice came at the end of my meal. I went home hungry because I didn't want to eat plain steamed rice.

The service was sub-standard. Also- our clothes and hair got smelly from all of the smoke. This was probably our worst Teppan experience ever. Not worth it.

We were celebrating my wife's birthday and everything went smoothly once we got in the door. Had 6pm resevations and got called in about 6:10, after reminding the hosts that we were still waiting outside. We were the only guests who were waiting outside at 6pm. Once seated, we were taken care of by two wonderful servers and our chef was fun. The chef was very good. Dinner was delicious. The servers sang to my wife and I appreciated that. Overall, it was a good time.

We always go to Benihana for each of our birthdays. The $30 certificate is wonderful! Of course it has been a long time since everything was shutdown so we were skeptical how it would be. Staff was still amazing and our chef was fun and entertaining. It wasn’t as loud as it used to be since it is limited capacity. However, they still sang for the birthday and atmosphere was still fun. The only thing is now it is only 6 per table instead of 8 so if you have more than 6 it is a bit more difficult. Overall though all safety precautions are in place and great food!

Overall grateful that we could go, however COVID made the experience very different and not in a good way. Seemed the fun part, the chef interaction part, was missing. Oh how I hope it gets back to normal once again. We had the chef all to ourselves, just two of us, but I thought the recipes tasted different, cooking for just two, especially the chicken fried rice.

Service was below average .. we orders appetizers and we didn’t bet it till after our meal , we had to continuously ask for drink refills .. there wasn’t that many ppl , the girl was just chit chatting with the other staff standing around .. she never brought the sauces we asked for , the drink we ordered was very watered down, we mentioned it to her and she just dismissed it.. the rice was very bland .. and the shrimp was over cooked ... for what we paid , food and service should have been a lot better ..
