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.

We felt left on our own with no drinks for quite a while before our table was full & the Teppanyaki could begin. Once it got going, it was excellent & the chefs remarkable. The portions on the set menu are a good size & we left feeling comfortably full.

We had a delightful lunch experience at Benihana Piccadilly Myself my Wife and two Granddaughters it was all theatre by a very accomplished chef with lots of fun and culinary tricks and the food was delicious give yourself 11/2 to 2 hours if you are going to a theatre - the Manager Li Hao will look after you - Taxis are just around the corner

Chef that cooked rushed the cooking in front of us. Saw other cooks doing a lot more tricks and entertainment that our one. Shame. Probably wouldn’t go back.

Have been to Benihana previously and the show was much better, the chef this time round wasn't very talkative, could have been more creative and interesting. Some in my company were there for the first time and enjoyed their time, I wasn't particularly impressed with this being the poorest show out of my 5+ tepanyaki dinners.

Good service average food. The sauces were bland, the hibachi vegetables were just bean sprouts. Overall food was a letdown, the chef did a great job entertaining us during the cook.

Overall the food saved the day as it couldn’t be faulted..

However the chef was very quiet which was sad as I was quick looking forward to the lively atmosphere and jokes that used to be associated with the restaurant
It appeared every chef was quiet so the restaurant atmosphere was a bit sad

I will come back on another week night to see if there is any change and would always recommend to friends based On food quality

We went on a deal and I still found that it was extremely overpriced for what we received. The salad seemed like it came straight out of a packet and was nothing more than glorified chopped iceberg. We upgraded to the £45 offer thinking the steak would be better quality. I was very disappointed by this as it was over cooked and very chewy. When I showed the waitress the confirmation of the offer which included a glass of prosecco, she had to go and double check this with her managor which I thought was strange and quite inhospitable. We also had desert included which we did not receive. After being left at our table when our plates had been cleared, we were finally approached by a waitress who said "Your dessert is only vanilla icecream, do you still want it"? We were not asked if we wanted anything else and were then brought the bill, having not asked for it. Getting cooked for at your table was the only novelty but you could honestly rustle together something more impressive at home yourself.

Great experience and great value for money however, I wouldn’t say it’s the best quality food and portion size. Also the most annoying thing is that the food comes in drops and drabs.

My reservation was at 6, and we were running late, I rang the restaurant and said I’ll be late, I was told if I am not there by 7.15 my reservation would be cancelled, we made it on time and had to rush, when we got there we were waiting till 7 o clock for other people to arrive, so if we took our time and arrived at 6.20 or even 6.30 we would have been fine, because our dinner started after 7, so we were sitting in the restaurant for 50 minutes waiting anyway.

This was the only downside apart from that it was a great experience
