Benihana restaurant in London’s Piccadilly offers a truly unique dining experience. The show-stopping chefs with their dancing knives and witty banter originated in New York in the 60’s and Behihana’s culinary experience has been enjoyed by more than 100 million diners worldwide. Each of Behinana’s large shared table enjoys its own dedicated chef who prepares a light, delicious, many-coursed Japanese meal teppan-yaki style before your eyes while entertaining you with samurai knife skills and a stream of charming patter. You can choose from several kinds of steak, chicken, or seafood and let the chef take care of the rest. Meals at Benihana are terrific fun for families, groups of friends and outings for work teams as well as easy first-date venues. The décor is modern Japanese, smart and minimalist. Service is charming and, if sushi is always part of your Japanese meal, Benihana’s sushi is an excellent example of authentic Japanese cuisine.

A very fun place to be where the food is made in front of you, the food is a 6/10, needs some more flavour! But overall everything else about it is amazing!

We went because we had heard about the amazing knife show and tricks performed by the chefs. Our chef, Pedro unfortunately did little more than throw prawn tails in his hat. I asked him if he could do any knife tricks and he performed one dropping the knife... My kids looked at the chef's on other tables doing much more entertainment and kept asking why our's wasn't bothering. Disappointing as I agree with tripadvisor, the food is really bland.

We had a great time. The chef was amazing. Steak was cooked to perfection. Food was delightful. Ambiance was A+. I would definitely recommend anyone visiting London to book this restaurant for a date night. The Bodies Exhibit is a five minute walk away. We ate here after seeing that. Great experience and a fantastic place to spend an Anniversary dinner.

Good atmosphere and entertaining.
Food isn't anything spectacular especially for the price, you could go somewhere with better food for the same money. Cocktails weren't anything great either.
Toilets could do with being touched up too.

Been going for years and it is not longer what it was - portions are small, service is shocking and the place is looking tired and old. Typical of a restaurant in a tourist area, they don't care if they never see you again. Even the chef acted as if he was doing us a big favour by being there.

Will never go back and it was always one of my favourite places to eat at when in London.

Entertaining spectacle, great service, friendly staff, food good but feels a bit overpriced for what it is... A bit of BBQ! The best illustration of the balance being away from fine dining is that the 6th course dessert is a binary choice of vanilla or chocolate ice-cream! And though it's two scoops, you can't have one of each! 🙄. Worth going once.

Merlon was our chef and he made the night for us otherwise wouldn't have been very impressed if it wasn't for him making the food making part so much fun and enjoyable. But have to say the food was very bland for my liking. Not enough flavour!

We have been here envy times before and we wanted to take our friends from Holland. I have to say we were disappointed on this occasion as the show cooking was lacking. There were no eggs used and the rice was just served up in a bowl usually its fried with eggs but the eggs are used as part of the show.

Wouldn’t rush back.
