You have to sit with strangers which is horrible, but there's a food show with knives cutting and onion rings made into a volcano. There's also a lot of butter used which is great.
Knife-wielding chefs put on a show at this communal Japanese grill. – In Short
Benihana started out as a tiny four-table restaurant in New York City's theater district before becoming an international chain. Diners sit around large tables where chefs ostentatiously chop, slice, stir-fry and grill. Entree options are simple--shrimp, chicken, steak and scallops--and preparation is uniform. Every entree comes with a similar stock of sides: rice, onion soup, shrimp appetizer, iceberg lettuce drizzled with dressing, sauteed vegetables and green tea.
soooo good – just what I was craving. of course we went for the hibachi dinner but we also wanted to try the spicy tuna roll which I have to say was prob the best I have ever had, yummy, spicy, and fresh. I chose the 'Splash & Meadow' meal which was steak and shrimp and my bf chose the 'Benihana Special' which was steak and cold water lobster tail. all the dinners some w/ Japanese onion and mushroom (delicious), salad, shrimp appetizer, hibachi vegetables, steamed rice, and dessert. I also order chicken fried rice on the side which was sooo good, already craving it!
I guess you can?t really go wrong with hibachi at any place but I had a great meal here, and the price was reasonable too. all that food, plus, 1 pina colada, 1 beer, and 1 hot tea, for under $100! (not inc. tax and tip). plenty of leftovers :)
Good food and experience, but... – Chefs from many different Asian countries, except Japan, prepare the food. Although the food is tasty, plentiful, and the experience is fun, this is NOT Japanese cuisine.
