Benihana restaurant in London’s Piccadilly offers a truly unique dining experience. The show-stopping chefs with their dancing knives and witty banter originated in New York in the 60’s and Behihana’s culinary experience has been enjoyed by more than 100 million diners worldwide. Each of Behinana’s large shared table enjoys its own dedicated chef who prepares a light, delicious, many-coursed Japanese meal teppan-yaki style before your eyes while entertaining you with samurai knife skills and a stream of charming patter. You can choose from several kinds of steak, chicken, or seafood and let the chef take care of the rest. Meals at Benihana are terrific fun for families, groups of friends and outings for work teams as well as easy first-date venues. The décor is modern Japanese, smart and minimalist. Service is charming and, if sushi is always part of your Japanese meal, Benihana’s sushi is an excellent example of authentic Japanese cuisine.

This was our 2nd visit this year and This visit was not as good as the 1st. The teppanyaki chef was lacklustre and looked like this was his millionth cook..The sauces lack taste, the meet & fish is unseasoned with no other extras offered, chilli, salt and pepper and boy do you need it. Quantities of meat & fish very small and its not cheap. You have to pay almost £4 to have your boiled rice fried in front of you with some egg and soy sauce and to see a love heart shape made. You leave Benihana's hungry and skint. Same old style of food and service as 18 yrs ago...it needs a freshen up to sy the least

It was an exceptional experience, especially the Chefs cooking on the Teppan! Front of House were the only ones who caused me to give it 4 stars. The gentleman behind the bar, Front of House was welcoming and delivered good service.

Front of house staff very rude. Waited 20 mins for a table that I had booked 8 weeks in advance. Had no update from staff on when we were going to be seated until I asked what was taking so long, my friend was 8 months pregnant and had to stand and wait in a crowded area, no apology from staff, didn’t even offer to take our jackets until I asked them if they could take my coat. They just had a very bad attitude and I would not go back or recommend to anyone for that reason. It’s a shame because the food and chef were great but front of house staff really let the whole experience down.

We loved the restaurant layout, the staff are lovely and food was amazing. It was our first time here so we weren’t sure what to expect. Chef Gary was great and made amazing food.
The only downer was that we shared our table with an annoying family, but the staff can’t help that. We’ll definitely be back

I did not think I’d have such a bad experience, after calling them up and letting them know it was my boyfriends birthday they didn’t say happy birthday or do anything special like any other restaurant would. We were put on a table with really awful people and they were nosey and rude. After hearing great things about Benihana I thought I’d give it a go and I regret it so much will never return. It’s not worth for what you pay.

Tired restaurant and unenthusiastic staff (but friendly). Menu not very imaginative. Food was average but prices not reflective of this. Atmosphere very flat.
Needs a serious boost of energy

Never been be fore, really really enjoyed it, food tasty, chef Gary was lovely. The food theatre was brilliant.
I would give it lore stars but the welcome we received was awful. 3 staff stood and watched me, arms full of bags, umbrellas, children, coming in out of storm, tripped up over their umbrella stand. 3 staff, no other customers just watched me struggle and untangle myself. Then valeria was so curt, rude and dreadful I almost walked out but it was my husbands 40th and my daughters 7th birthday. I had changed my booking on line and spoke to someone and she actually said 'no you didn't'!!
I cannot wait fathom how someone so unwelcoming and rude could possibly be there at front of house.
Once we got past valeria... All other staff were utterly wondeful.

The staff was not very kind, the food was good but the chef's show was poor (I had been in other Benihanas both in the USA and in Asia and the experience was far better). I didn't find the same funny atmosphere here that I found in other restaurants.

Great teppanyaki food preparation show. The quality of the ingredients is not the best however. Empty glasses were left on the table for the duration of the meal and the toilet area could be renovated.
