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.

Had a great experience for my son’s birthday. Our chef Greg was hilarious! The food was delicious and all the staff were really friendly and accommodating from arrival to departure. All staff were Covid-19 compliant. The price is more than reasonable for the service and food provided especially as we used the savers discount. Would definitely go again - 5 stars

Had an absolutely amazing time the staff were so welcoming and patient. Two of the five guests that were in my party arrived a hour late and they still saved us a table.. we are so grateful for that. The chef that we had was so entertaining and fun and definitely made the experience even more special. Would definitely recommend for special occasions.

Great place for a meal with friends or a date. The food is great and expertly prepared by the chef's who entertain you with their knife skills and tricks, at your Hibachi grill table setting. Service was professional and friendly while consistently respecting social distancing guidelines. Staff were happy to help make our birthday celebrations special

Amazing experience and the food was lovely, although two of our group members were running late and they wouldn’t seat us and told us we had to wait outside in the cold for them to arrive. Was hard to get a hold of a waiter, they were always rushing around. The service charge is expensive!!! I expected a service charge although not such a pricey one! But I would recommend coming here!

Had a lovely evening at Benihana in Piccadilly. The staff couldn’t do enough to cater for my daughter’s strict dietary requirements and they put us at ease. What a great place for kids, great food and entertainment.

Amazing experience even if it was a little on the expensive side (this could also be avoided by ordering less prosecco). Had a really funny chef, didn't nail all the tricks but all in all was really good. Would definitely go again.

Place was nice and overall it is a really good environment. The food we had was nice but didn’t think we had enough for the price we paid. We did not have any of the prawn starter or vegetables and asked if we could swap the prawn starter for a chicken starter and got told no.

It's not just good food, it's theatre as well. Our chef was very entertaining and the food he cooked on the teppan was delicious. Drinks are little on the expensive side, but the cocktails were fantastic.

Its good value teppanyaki entertainment for a first timer, but the Hibachi menu I would say is fairly bland and average, and nothing a Japanese person would be proud of.

Food was very underwhelming, very bland and lacked flavours. The seasoning was rather basic - salt, black pepper and sesame seeds. The rice was just plain but it could have easily been served as egg fried rice. Very inferiorly tasting food compared to other Teppanyaki restaurants I've been to.

Great night out and great chef. Good social distancing observed and plenty of hand sanitizer. Food tasted fresh and delicious. Noise is moderate only because of the chopping knives and cooking - not enough to ruin a conversation with friends. Absolutely fab

We had a great evening, the food was excellent and very fresh – the chef was most professional, and good fun. The only reason we do not give it five stars is surprisingly, they do not serve Japanese-style tea.

Went for son's 18th birthday. Food was excellent - everything we tasted was fresh and extremely tasty. The show cooking element was fun, sadly the mask the chef had to wear did make hearing his patter a little difficult. I felt the place lacked the atmosphere and pizzazz you would expect when paying the prices charged - it felt a little lacklustre but definitely not through any fault of the staff, who were excellent throughout. Perhaps in this post-Covid time this is unfortunately what the experience will be like through no fault of their own.

Went for the first time it was such a vibe. The service was lovely the cooks are so friendly and had us laughing the entire time. Defiantly expect them to put on a show!
The food was good and served hot and I wasn’t disappointed but the meal could have had a bit more salt (Personal preference).
It’s defiantly the place to go in a big group. They even surprised us with a birthday surprise, which was nice.
Bare in mind there’s a service fee.

I was really looking forward to my wifes birthday evening at benihanato enjoy Japanese cuisine and the ambiance of tepenyaki..
however our food was cooked by a what I can describe as a Turkish Keebab man who to say the least was not putting on a show like many of the other chefs..
