Welcome to Benihana and a dining experience unlike any other! Our guests are seated at communal tables in groups, where your personal chef will perform the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Watch as we slice and dice, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well taste buds, whether you choose mouth-watering steak, tender chicken or succulent seafood. You can also enjoy sushi prepared by a talented sushi chef and indulge in a specialty cocktail. Benihana Sacramento is located at the corner of Sunrise and Madison Avenues, near Sunrise Mall regional shopping center in Citrus Heights. The restaurant hosts many loyal guests who come from far around for the showman chefs and dinner theatrics on the teppanyaki grill. You can also relax with friends, family or co-workers with the traditional teppanyaki show performed on the hibachi grill.

Always a fun evening. Make your reservations about 30 minutes before you want to eat. They are always delayed at least 15 minutes before seating you.

I just moved to the area and I was so happy to see there was a benihana here it is one of my favorite places ! but I was so disappointed with it I guess all benihana's are not the same I will not go back there . the cook dropped a glass bowl on the cooking top and wiped it up and still cooked I was hoping we wouldn't get the glass in our food . the food had no flavor I'm so sad to be writing this review.

The staff are so nice and they seat you in groups to enjoy the shows the chefs put on as they cook your delicious meal choices-- Their cutting and cooking skills are amazing to watch. the volcano made of onion rings is my favorite to watch go up........ Drinks are great and the bar has fantastic sake and sake server containers to choose from. They do have fresh Sushi to enjoy as appetizers,

It took over 2 hours for us to be done with the experience. The waiter or host he was excellent but the chef took forever to get to the table to prepare our meals.

I hadn't been to Benihana's since I was five. The food was good, the ambiance was good as well. Our chef was very talented and funny. Overall, I would suggest this if you've never been to this style of restaurant.

Dinner was great. Chef put on a wonderfully fun show. She was very engaging and was very good and making everyone feel attended to and entertained. However, I was extremely disappointed that there were no souvenir buddahs. I chose benihanas because my date had never ever been to one and was looking forward to getting her a buddah with dinner. It would have made for a nice memory and sentimental item seeing how it was Valentine's Day.

I was a little disappointed. I guess I was expecting a lot more for what they charge. The drinks were mediocre. I ordered a lemon drop and the glass was half empty. I tried a second drink, and it was watered down. The food was okay not to my expectation and the hype.

Food was great as always, they trouble seating us in a timely fashion. They didn’t take into concretaration that would need tables chefs to cook the take out orders we had to wait 25 minuets because there wasn’t enough chefs for the floor. Very poor planning
