Habachi table seems to be slanted so the food you pays for ends up in someone else’s plate.

Managment also assume that empty plate mean that service was good not that you stayed hungry.

I went to international drive Benihana a week prior to this visit. it was awesome. the server, chef and food was all on point. So I decided to take my friends to this Benihana so we can visit Disney springs after.

We ordered agedashi tofu for our appetizer. When the server brought it to us, we were already having our fried rice. tofu and the soup in the bowl was not even warm at all. it was cold so I've told our server after our first bite it was cold. He asked if I want to order other one. By that moment, we were almost finished our meal. So I didn't want to take another risk. Of course he didn't forget to charged that on to our bill.

When The chef starting to burnt our vegetables black, we talked to our selves that burnt verge is not worse then burnt meat so we tried to eat some of it. But when he started to burnt my scallop, I really wanted to stand up and leave the place. My friends were so upset and didn't want to stay for our desert so we paid then left.

It was my worst Benihana trip ever. I've started to going to Benihana Dallas more then 20years ago and I always have my old time memories with my friends there in Dallas. But this trip totally distroied my good memories.

My friend told me that it was the worst hibachi she ever had in her life.

I feel bad to tell you all this but it's the fact.

I read a lot of reviews about the long wait time and it was so long that we ended up leaving without eating. We wanted to have first hand experirnce and we did. What a shame since it was my husband s birthday. We witnessed other people leave as well due to the long wait time and it was a week day. Staff did not seem too concerned either. I will not recommend this place at all.

We will never go back and we will be sure to tell all our family, friends and clients not to go either. Use to be a fan of the original teppanyaki style restaurant. Had reservations for 7:30. Chef did not come to table until 8:45, an hour and 15 minutes later. Our three young children were patient but starving!!! We even told the General Manager about the situation at 8:15 and her attitude was like "too bad, what do you want from me".

I have worked all my life in the restaurant business and my family owns a popular restaurant. I understand there can be issues, but what we went through and how we were treated was the worse. Manager never even came to check up on us after our complaint. Do yourself a favor and go to Kobe. My wife is a GM for a hotel and when her guests ask her for dining options, I am sure she will steer them away.

It took an hour before the chef came out to cook. You have to plan for min 2 Hours from beginning to end. I just don’t have that amount of time to watch food being prepared.

Loves the food, just a loud group of kids ruined it. Spoke to the Manager and felt he really didn't want to do anything.

We were their for my birthday and we were in a room with a party who was having a big birthday party and it was very noisy. We couldn’t have a conversation because it was so loud we would prefer not to be in that situation again but overall the food and service was excellent.
