Welcome to Benihana and a dining experience unlike any other! Our guests are seated at communal tables in groups, where your personal chef will perform the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Watch as we slice and dice, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well taste buds, whether you choose mouth-watering steak, tender chicken or succulent seafood. You can also enjoy sushi prepared by a talented sushi chef and indulge in a specialty cocktail. A visit to Benihana Dallas is like stepping into a Japanese country farmhouse among the bustle of the city. The restaurant is surrounded by a koi-filled lake. Guests cross a wooden bridge to the entrance and once inside, they are met with cordial greetings from the hosts. The restaurant consists of several smaller rooms which afford a sense of privacy; larger groups can opt for the four-table rooms located on either wing.

We go to Benihana’s about 3 times a year as a family. This was my worst experience. We waited over and hour for the chef to start cooking our food.

Khua was very rude! He tried to clean our table with a dirty towel. When we asked if he could use a different towel he replied "Anything else?" Like we were bothering him.

This was my 1st trip here. Our server was great! The food was good, however, the chef was rather boring. I expected a lively chef who would do more than just complete tasks. I have been to other places with better chef entertainment for almost half the price. It restaurant is really nice. We did wear masks while waiting. Everyone was very friendly. I will try again at another time.

Best food we had in all of 2020...The limo dropped us off and we did not wait long for a table and the kids were amazed by the chefs cooking

Our chef, David, was not at all entertaining. Not the usual friendly jokes and tricks--only did the smoking onion train :( We brought our grandchildren and, while the food was good, the experience wasn't what we've had in the past.

Asked for high chair about three times before my father went to ask someone in hallway. Waiter didnt check on us often. Ended up asking other staff for refills, extra silverware, etc. Usually the cook put on a small performance, this time it was skipped (not sure thats a complaint more than an observation. My steak is usually kinda juicy and this time it was pretty dry.

Usually things are great! Likely just a Fathers Day fluke.

You might want to check ahead of time if they are well-staffed for the evening. They just had an off night when we went. Food was excellent, as always!

Took us nearly 3 hours (with a reservation mind you) for us to dine. We got sat and waited almost an hour before our chef arrived. The chef was great and the food was good but the length of time to eat was tough to endure. Lastly, our vehicle was stolen across the street where we were forced to park since valet was closed. They offer no security cameras or security guards watching that lot so be advised.

the host stand was rude, my server sucked i asked if i can put a to go order and she said no go to the front. then i went to the front and they told me no do it with my server and then she realized she'd be getting the tip and changed her mind and tried to take my to go order. i don't get what was the reason of being rude when i was having my normal DINE IN meal and just wanted another meal to take home???? that's more money for you guys, so why did the serve act like i was such a burden to her.

Diet time and we did enjoy it but..... we had an issue with another party. The other party came in and she took out a can of Lysol and sprayed the table chairs the area. They had just brought out our cart with our food and the mist got on our food. We had a huge argument with that party. It was my daughters 12th birthday and she stared crying. My issue now that we have had time to process I strongly feel that the hostess she have stopped her immediately but she just stood their and let her continue spraying. They did move them and management apologized but for us to take our daughter and experience that makes us feel sad for her, her birthday was ruined. We spent $300 and now I regret staying. She told me she’ll never forget how scared she was for her safety and as a parent this is the worst feeling in the world.

We have a tradition of celebration our families Birthdays (April/May) at Benihana. This year (2020) we were quarantined and had to push our celebrating back so getting out and being able to actually go to a restaurant was an extra special treat for us. Unfortunately, when we went to the Dallas location the Koi pond was completely drained and that was the reason for picking this location over the Plano was to enjoy the Koi pond (no koi/no water- under construction). We sat for an hour and 15 min. looking at a drained koi pond before the Hibachi chef "Henry" arrived at the grill. "Henry" with mask on didn't interact with us, no tricks, no fun... just cooked and left. We have two young boys and they love going to Hibachi... this time was VERY disappointing. Sad because my husband and I have been coming to this location since we were kids in the early 80's.
