    The $25 lunch DineLA is a steal. The portion is adequate with 10 pcs of sushi. It looks little I thought, but I was full after finishing Parking is on the street meter. I found okay parking because I showed up for Monday lunch Prices of Omakase is fairly expensive if wasn't for DineLA. I wouldn't show up for no DineLA

    Francisco was an outstanding chef! We’ve probably eaten at Benihana 50 times or more and he was the best chef we’ve had. On the negative side - it’s always a drag to show up to a reservation on time and have to wait 30 minutes + to be seated … the host desk could do better to seat reservations in a timely fashion.
