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.

I loved eating at Benihana! It was an experience for sure and I think that is what makes it a great place. I believe it's a really good place for groups, as we went as a couple which meant we were grouped with another trio, so keep that in mind when visiting. Overall would go again.

Think this place is over rated. You get food in dribs and drabs and the chef serves your food/meat as they’re cooked, so yes it tastes fresh but you feel as though you need to eat again after.

I didn’t like how the chef bought the salad out first. 10 mins later bought the sauces. And then we had to wait about 30 mins for the chef. That’s totally unacceptable.
And then you had no noodles
Chefs excuse was that they ran out and I should speak to the manager about it.

So we didn’t have a good experience

I would like to compensated for our bad experience.
It was my sons 17th birthday

I’m very close to go to trip advisor and google to write my reviews

Absolutely terrible, wine was put into a warm ice bucket, my wife’s starter came out separate to mine when the chef started cooking the mains. Food was terrible and over priced. Service was shocking and non existent and I had to pay £145 for the privilege. I will never ever go back to this over priced burger van.

Avoid at all costs

Overall the food was good but as for the service it was terrible. Asked for 3 different drinks and didn’t have hardly any ingredients for them. Ended up getting drinks we didn’t want. The food is good but service is poor here and wouldn’t go again. Overall dissapointed

Food and service was amazing. Our chef was energetic and our waiter was lovely and extremely kind. Toilets were a little messy and the taped arrows on the floor made the venue seem cheap but food and service was amazing.

Seriously what a huge let down! There was two sections to eat and we were taken to the dark and dingy side. The show was so half assed and the food was bland. Then the bill is so high for a poor experience. Better off at P.F. Chang.

We give hats off to Benihana for handling themselves so well in the post Covid opening environment. We had a really nice lunch there - this remains a perfect spot for adults who need to feed older kids and teens and also have a bit of entertainment. The staff were great and the food really good. Only mild criticism might be of the decor, which could use a bit of a refresh.
