Japanese
An always popular restaurant on the style-forward Kings Road in London’s Chelsea, Benihana offers an exciting take on Japanese dining. A concept originated way back in the 1960s over in the Big Apple, Benihana brings together food and performance, pioneering ‘eatertainment’. Ideal for families, Benihana is sleek and stylish with a modern interior, but chances are you won’t be paying much attention to your surroundings – most diners are too busy being charmed by the tableside teppan-yaki cookery which sees the chefs create real drama before your very eyes. In addition to the delicious personally created dishes cooked and served at your table, Benihana also offers eat in and lunchtime take away sushi.

Not very fancy, but it is a fun experience so it’s something different. The food was nice and I’m glad I have done it but wouldn’t go back in a hurry. Food was very expensive as well

Me and wife cake for my anniversary. It was very nice the food was amazing and we came with our 2 children (18 month and 8 weeks) I booked it well in advance and I spoke to the restaurant on the Monday and my booking was Wednesday. I said look I would request that we have our own table because of covid 19 and I want my children to be safe. The lady said no problem I will make a note. I called the restaurant 2 hours before my booking on the day and they said there are no notes on the file and it will not be possible. I spoke to the manager Diego and he rude saying “are you done” and I said excuse me and he said “I mean are you finished”

This ruined my experience but food was very nice.

Many thanks.

We had waited over an hour to be seated and was not greeted at the door. We were even seated last in comparison to two white girls who came after us, which was not coincidence. On top of that, Instead of receiving our steaks done as medium rare, we were given steaks that were over done and too tough to consume. When we had mentioned it to the waiter, we felt like it was brushed off. We also had to wait 20mins just for cutlery.

It was very fun and a different experience to have such a skilled chef cook and perform in front of you with such skill and precision. I really enjoyed all of his moves, I especially liked the flicks with his tools the fire and how fast he was cutting shrimp. Overall it was very good and I would recommend it to all. It’s an experience you won’t forget

The chef was really nice and was the highlight of the meal.

Although it took a bit of time for us to order (not a lot of staff and wifi not working therefore cannot access online menu), the meal itself was terrific. The food was of good quality and portion.

The monthly deal is awesome as it would've costed us much more for the same service and food we were given!

What a blast my husband and I had for my birthday dinner! Marvin was a riot and a fantastic chef, pura vida! We will definitely be coming back again for more delicious sushi, drinks and all the food. Keep it going, you are all doing a fantastic job. I was happy that the sushi was frozen as I am expecting so I was able to eat it and that the waitress let me know about their virgin drinks- I had myself a very tasty pina colada.

My husband and I hadn't gone out in such a long time that I was actually nervous for this evening. But in the end it met all of our expectations and were so happy that we went out despite being incredibly sleepy (kids do this to you hehe). Thank you again and we will be back!

The food was delicious. We are recommended to upgrade our steak to the fillet mignon and I’m so pleased we did. Our chef Caesar cooked it to perfection. I have been to other leading steak houses that can’t do it better. It was my sons 18th and our chef made him feel special. Great food, friendly staff worth the money!

Benihana is the perfect lace if you enjoy excellent tssting food! I took my partner here for his birthday and he was so happy we went.
The atmosphere is fun and inviting but the food was definitely a winner.... be prepared to spend more than your average eatery but it’s so worth it.
Also the waiting staff and bar staff were so friendly and helpful ves wanted for nothing

On the menu you have the option of Salmon or Sea bass. I ordered the sea bass. After everyone at the table had their food cooked and eaten. The waiter asked if everything okay. I said no I haven't received the sea bass i ordered... then he went to kitchen and came back with salmon saying no sea bass left... and did not receive cutlery when asked 3 times. Bad experience and poor service. I won't be going back. I did like the chef tho. Very skilled.
