The food and experience was great! However, it was very smoky which is to be expected with the open grilling. I had fun!

We had an nice chef; however, he absolutely destroyed the proteins. I ordered shrimp, I could have bounced it off the floor. My son ordered the steak and mushrooms. Steak was orderer medium rare, It was very well done. He also was served five mushrooms.

The fried rice was excellent. We requested hot tea, which not served. They also pulled my son's plate while he was still eating. And it is so expensive for what you receive. Value is just not worth it. The chef did put on an excellent show.

I chose the wrong venue for our anniversary. My wife and I would have preferred a quieter and more intimate environment. But since we both wanted Japanese steaks, it was the closest place around. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our food and appreciated the excellent service.

On time for my reservation but took 40 mins to be seated plus another 20 minutes until the chef came to began cooking. Reservation was at 12:30 on a Sunday, boxed up my food immediately when the last course was finished at 2:10 and left.

My only complaint it was the really HOT! We were burning up. Could be the number of families celebrating graduation. It was my birthday and I heard a lot of others getting a birthday song.. so a lot of people.. but it was so Hot the reason for my one star on ambience

It's been awhile since we have eaten at BH, my wife and I were celebrating our 29th anniversary and brought my mom for her first BH experience. It was Saturday and the place was packed with graduation parties, very busy, we had reservations at 5:45 and arrived a few minutes early, barely had time to get a drink at the bar and we were called for our table right on time. The management, staff and chefs did an amazing job, everything ran like clockwork, friendly and fast but not rushed, well done.

Front desk staff literally cursing, “F*@k, I don’t want to be here.” Reservation wasn’t worth anything, didn’t get seated for 30 minutes after reservation time. Habachi shows and food preparation were completely different table to table. Decent food, but experience overall was not worth the pricing.

I hate to say this, but our experience was not good at all. We go to Benihana every year for my birthday, and this year it was just bad. The waiter took 15 minutes to get drinks on the table once we ordered and then was barely present the entire night. Our chef, "Tom" looked like he hated his life and didn't do any of the cool features that usually come with watching them cook. They put an automatic 18% grat on our ticket without asking. Which is their loss, because we had planned on tipping $30 more than 18% but whatever. Will not be returning to this specific location.

Food and service was okay, not outstanding. Chef show was main attraction for granddaughter's birthday. She had fun. Awfully noisy. Unfortunate incident at end of celebration. The waiter lost our credit card. A customer turned it in to front register, but there were several minutes where no one knew what to do following a frantic search. The person at register should have checked with all the waiters to see if anyone missing a card by our name. It was clearly the waiter's fault. He seemed to think we did not insert the card in his folder.

Food is always great. I think charging extra for chicken fried rice is wrong when you are paying for a plate of food that is 18 dollars. I think refusing to substitute for shrimp appetizer for people who are allergic to shrimp is just "highway robbery"

This was my first time at Benihana. I didn't know what to expect. I wasn't crazy about the group seating but we eneded sitting with a nice couple with some adorable kids. Later a young couple came in from like Prom or something and they were cute. So it worked out. I think I'd come again with a party of 8 tho. :-)
There was this group of people finishing their meal when we were seated and they were LOUD and EXTRA!!!! No respect for others trying to converse with their own table....I felt bad for the wait staff because I know if ANYBODY would've said anything it would've been an issue....They would've given a bad review just because. So Good Job to your staff for keeping it copo with all that unnecessary foolishness.

This was my worst visit ever to any Benihana restaurant, and I have eat at Benihana more times than I can count. The food and service at the Sugar Land location continues to decline, but this was so bad I'm not sure if I will ever go there again.

Our chef (his name was Wilie) did not even seem to know what he was doing. I can't believe he was properly trained. He burned the rice and the chicken for the chicken fried rice. He overcooked the tuna for one of our dishes, and he burned the vegetables for everyone as well. To top it all off, I was supposed to get mushrooms with my steak, but he did not cook them. When I asked about that at the end of the meal, he said that I needed to ask for them at the beginning, that they don't serve mushrooms unless you ask for them!!!! That is completely ridiculous! Right on the menu it says that the filet mignon and other steak dishes are served with mushrooms.

Obviously I did not give them must of a tip (The few dollars I gave was for the person filling my drinks, not the chef). If you do happen to go to this location, make sure that Wilie is not the person cooking for you.
