A different environment. We are use to the hibachi style restaurant. This Benihana is a sit down at a regular table and they take your order and bring to the table.

I was lied to on the phone. I called ask about my birthday certificate. This guy name Joe said it okay as long as I got my driver license. Got there and ask for Joe. No Joe work there. The workers said. I paid for food that was nasty. The cook was nasty cooking the food. The rice wasn’t done. We ordered extra rice and did not get it. Our ticket was over 62.00 dollars. Told the waiter about we did get our extra rice. She said the dinner did not come with rice. So we were charged $3.95 to get one rice with our meal. We have taken our children and ourselves for years to this place. My grandsons love to come there. But I am unsure with this experience. The manager and his wife made a big deal out out it. This guy Joe took my reservation over the phone. I am just going by what he said to me. I call the local # to the Benihana Resturant in north Little Rock.
I was very disappointed in the service and the behavior of the manager. I love shrimp and chicken. But I left my food and the Resturant because it was nasty. Shrimps was done either.

Our waiter David was awesome! He was very attentive to his tables, friendly, and professional! Linh was our chef. We ordered seafood, steak, and chicken. The food was prepared with flair and was cooked to perfection! The scallops and calamari were melt in your mouth. Linh is most excellent! We have eaten at three other habachi restaurants and no where else compares to Benihana!

Out of all of the hibachi places I’ve been to this one was my least favorite. There is pretty much an up charge for everything. Fried rice is an additional $4. Our chef was not very energetic. Our waitress was fantastic and very kind. The food was okay but overpriced.

The food was really good. The steak dishes were better than any hibachi style restaurant in the area. The server was friendly and helpful with menu items. The chilli shrimp sushi was outstanding. However, the chef that came to our table did not entertain during cooking.?she did not speak to our table except to make sure our food order was correct. My son eats low carb and he couldn’t substitute extra vegetables for the rice.

The show usually put on by the chef was minimal but the food was very good. Some of the vegi’s were quite salty if you’re on a lower sodium diet. I just passed mine to my husband. The sushi was fresh and delicious. We had very good table mates so it was a very enjoyable dinner.
It was very pricey especially considering the fried rice is an add on? Not sure why??

We had Kade as our server. He was great!!! We had Linh as our cook. She makes great food. We were seated by the owner. Rocky. He is always pleasant. And yes we will take that house and car you offered when I asked you if I could get a birthday cake! Ha Ha. We always enjoy our meal at Benihana North Little Rock. We stay at that Wyndham when traveling to little rock so that we can have the Benihana experience. My husband always gets Rocky's Choice and I usually get Benihana Special. Linh did an exceptional job on our meals.

We went for my birthday and the only negative thing I have was that we made reservations for 6:30 and still had to wait almost an hour before being sat. I do understand it’s busy but was quite frustrating with kids who needed to get in bed for school the next day. Otherwise our cook and waiter were excellent! Food was outstanding.

I was grateful to be able to have my reservations met I liked the hospitality when I arrived I had a short wait and I really appreciated that I thought it was very ironic and unusual and downright shocking that at the table that I shared with others consisted of all North Little Rock School District employees such as myself and the spouse of one co-worker who was also celebrating his birthday in the same birthday month ask me although I shared great company and had an awesome time anyway I would have loved to have a private table as requested on my reservation the staff was very nice and accommodating and deserve to be commended for their outstanding performance

It was ok
Food the best part but my shrimp was not cleaned well, still had the vein on several ones.
Front/hostess staff should be more welcoming and inviting.
Waitress kind of rude, it was our first time there had questions and she didn’t really have time to help because she “ had other tables”
Chef was what you would expect
Overall there are other Hibachi places in town and I would go there
