After a day of activity in the botanical garden with the family, my granddaughters wanted to eat seafood.
I had not been to Beni Hana for a while but i was sure that the cooking spectacle would be fun for the children.

The food was excellent, the ambiance was fun, our cook did a nice show for the kids. the portions were large and it was a lot of fun for the whole family.

We have already decided to return to celebrate the next birthday party.

Ambiance extrèmement bruyante qu'on entend même pas le cuisto, mais beau spectacle d'acrobatie culinaire! Manque toutefois de choix de légume à marier avec les viandes...à essayer quand même, c'est intéressant!

It seems that only the chef cooking at our table was not enjoying himself. All other table cooking chefs were making a great show to impress and entertain the kids and adults around their table. That cooking chef at our table was a great disappointment.

Besides the excellent food, the show given by the cook at your table is quite entertaining and the kids, small and at heart, love it.

Let me first start with the good...the food was excellent and the portions were great. The staff was nice. But, out of all the hibachi restuarants I have ever been to I have never experienced a cook who DID NOTHING...NO SHOW. Our chef simply stood there and prepared the food. It was my daughters 21st birthday as I did indicate to them and I wanted a fun atmosphere for her only to be extrememly disappointed. Our guests have never been to Hibachi and I bragged about what a fun time they were about to have and was embarrassed afterwards. There were other tables around us and only 1 chef interacted with thier guests. I spent a lot of money for 9 of us and wish I would booked a different restaurant.

The food and the service are excellent. Price range somewhere in the middle, not expensive but not cheap. Our chef was kind of quiet and there wasn't much entertainment at our table. The chef next table was really expansive and entertaining. His name was Steve. If you make a reservation ask for Steve.

I have been to many Japanese Steak Houses and was very excited about Beni Hana's as it is world renowned. However the show from the cheif was horrible. All he did was light an onion in fire, which is cool, but that is it. I have witnessed many shows and was waiting for him to do more, but he didnt. You go to a steak house for two things. They are food and the show. The food was amazing, the show was lacking. I think I may stick to the small mom and pop Japanese Steakhouses from now on.

This place was awesome, we have one like this in Vancouver and its called Kobe, same concept.
We love the interaction and the show the chef puts on, he makes a volcano outta the union rings and the makes it irrupt.
We're for sure going back

I've always been a fan of the Japanese style restaurants where they cook in front of you, and you can't go wrong with Beni Hana. This time we had a hilarious chef that made jokes and sang a pop song or two. You can look forward to a good time and amazing food.

This is a wonderful restaurant with impeccable service! The food was amazing - while we were waiting for the rest of the party to arrive, we ordered some appetizers - gyoza and tempura vegetables - both dishes were cooked and spiced to perfection! Most of us ordered the Bento which included a chicken and beef broth soup with caramelized onions, mushrooms and green onions - a combination that was liked by everyone. A fresh and crispy green salad followed and then the main dish. The portions were generous and tasty and the Bento has a little of everything. I would recommend this restaurant for birthdays or just friendly get-togethers with friends and family. A return visit is in the near future.

I took my wife a few weeks ago just off of a whim in search for food, had a wonderful time. Energetic chef's made the Saturday evening a lot of fun for the two of us. With that, I organized a group from work to go on a tuesday night. We were 16 people, all at the same table around the chefs. The setting for everyone to see each other and interact with each other and the chefs was spot on and the group had a really nice time. The ambience for a Tuesday wasn't as energetic as the Saturday crowd, but that seems normal especially considering that it was the same day as a snow storm. But it was a really fun time with great food. Great for just a couple or for big groups.

Our group (6 people) went to Beni Hana to celebrate a birthday and we very much appreciated the Happy Birthday song "in French" ! Everyone of us enjoyed the food,prepared by a real "chef" and the service by a very nice waitress.
We look forward to our next visit at Beni Hana.

J'y suis allé pour la St-Valentin et les tables étaient beaucoup pleine qu'à l'habitude. Un peu plus et j'avais le coude de la personne a coter de moi dans mon repas. Je suis venu près d'une vingtaine de fois et j'ai toujours apprécier le spectacle des cuisiniers, cependant cette fois-ci il n'avait pas le sens du spectacle comparativement au autres tables alentour de moi ( chants, prouesse avec les spatules, feu dans l’oignon, rien de cela n'a été fait, seulement une cuisson normale, ce qui m'a moins plus qu'à l'habitude car l'ambiance de ce restaurant est palpitante ). Nourriture à couper le souffle, toujours aussi excellente, boisson parfaite ( cocktail sur demande excellent ), rien à reprocher sur l'ensemble à part ces petits détails.

When I was young, we used to go to Hibachi restaurant on a regular basis. My wife and daugther had never been. It was a fun experience for both of them. Food was FANTASTIC. my only complaint is that the Chef did not do some important tricks like he volcanoe with the onion and the spinning juggling of he eggs. The waitress could have been a bit more amicable too.

Beni Hana est une expérience qui est encore meilleure à plusieurs. Bien qu'on y mange très bien, on ne parle pas ici de grande gastronomie, mais plutôt d'un agréable souper-spectacle au cours duquel nous voyons nos plats prendre forme sous nos yeux à partir d'ingrédients frais. Chaque « chef » a ses trucs pour divertir ses convives. Parfait pour les occasions spéciales ou les petits groupes.

I was not impressed that the server didn't not advise of prices when asked if changes to food could be done. As well, prices where rediculous when it came to alcool beverages. I almost had a heart attack with the price when I received my bill at the end of the night. I will not be returning anytime soon because of those prices.

Food was excellent and so was our cook. Very funny.

I went to Beni Hana with wife my wife.
We both ordered Beni Hana special.
We sat at table 31.
The Service was excellent.
We had Johnson cooking for us.
Mike who usually cooks for us was on vacation.
Johnson was very attenruve to are needs.
I hope one day Beni Hana will open a restaurant in the west end.
Till then I will come to the restaurant on Sherbrooke St. E.
I will recommend Bemi Hana to my friends and family.
