    Took our Mother there for Mother's Day. Thinle was our chef. We were seated quickly. The young man that took our orders was extremely nice and checked back with us often even though the restaurant was full. Thinle was very good and cooked everything perfectly. We had the Hibachi Chicken, Filet Mignon and the 3 meat/fish combo. Everyone enjoyed our lunch. We will be back!

    The guy cooking was more interested in the table next to us and gossiping with the other cook than doing their normal “show” and no fire. We had 2 kids which were 5 & 12 but charged for junior meals, not kids meals. For 5 people, we spent $200 so very excessive for what we got. Another place that is the same but in another town is literally half that for all 5 of us.

    Your prices are getting out of the park. We had a birthday coupon and we ended up paying $61 for just two entrees with drinks and fried rice. I would hate to have to pay your regular rates without the coupon.

    Benihana, Little Rock is quickly becoming my least favorite place to take my family for dining. This is the 2nd time we've commuted 1.5 hours, only to be disappointed and surprised by the service and food by such a distinguished restaurant chain. The hostess seemed disinterested to be there, never made eye contact and unwelcoming. The server had her issues with dialect and conveying menu information. She seemed overwhelmed and in a hurry. The Tepanyaki Chef was pleasant; however, overcooked our Filet Mignon and the Vegetables. The Sushi Deluxe was NOT fresh, as though it had been sitting out for several hours, making it unpleasant to eat. I'm a disabled veteran and seating was not conducive to making the dining experience worth our drive and money spent. My wife and I love Benihana's; however, this location needs a change for the better when it comes to customer service.

    I have been to Benihana probably 100 times but last night our chef was the very best we had ever had. He was so funny and kind, and really gave us tip top service. Our whole table of 8 could not have more happy! I wish I knew his name. We would never want any one else. Bravo

    As always, the food was excellent. But the dining experience suffered from a forgetful (but very friendly) waitress. Sweet girl, but I don’t think she brought anything that was requested beyond the basic dinner service. The chef gave a lackluster performance, but it’s hard to fault when the food tastes that good
