We have always had a great experience here. The staff is always pleasant and very helpful. It should be an enjoyable experience for anyone looking for good food.

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.

I’m a regular at this location for lunchtime. We decided to celebrate my birthday for dinner. It was extremely busy and the service was a little slower than usual. Joshua the server did his best to accommodate our every need. Paul
the chef did an OUTSTANDING job, the food was terrific. I picked a Wednesday night because I thought it wouldn’t be that busy, but I was totally wrong. Overall the experience was good!
