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.

Chef was very entertaining. The new egg spinning trick was a good watch, however a piece egg shell was found in the food. Good sushi and drinks. Waiter was very unwelcoming and came off rude. Toilets are dated and could do with a refurb.

First time there, we weren’t served drinks for a good hour and the food came thirty minutes after.
As first timers they could have explained that they wait for tables to be full before preparing food and serving drinks.
The chefs are amazing though, they calmed me down a lot because they’re hilarious and warm.

I have been going to Benihana's for 24 years and have always loved it. I went on Saturday and it was terrible. They seated us far too close to other diners (no social distancing) and the waiter wasn't wearing his mask over his nose. The steak was tough and the toilets were absolutely disgusting.

Food and service was nice.
The only thing that put us off was the Manager when we requested to change our table.
We fully understand inserting this pandemic, we worked in A&E hospital. He has refused, we thought that the next table we are sitting, there will be no one coming, only to find out that more people coming on our nearby table for less than 15 minutes. We were insulted by his decisions.
We will never set foot again at Benihana

We have been many times before and always felt that Benihana was something special. This time however, it felt more like Nando's. It was full of young, noisy people who did not like or appreciate the food. They all seemed
to be there for the meal deal and cocktail. The waiting staff were not very attentive; leaving dirty dishes, never refilling our water or wine. On the contrary, a big thumbs up to Charlie our chef who was brilliant, putting on a fantastic show with loads of skill and humour; he even took to refilling our water and wine himself. So, overall we understand it's hard times but maybe don't mix meal deal customers with full paying ones as we certainly won't be back for a while even with Charlie cooking!

Perhaps a little on the pricey side for some budgets but worth it for the entertainment. The service was fantastic, the waiter was so attentive. The chefs do a wonderful performance every time. The Merlot they serve is delicious and too drinkable. Food is excellent. Only downside is that your clothes do absorb the scent of cooking so dinner option is better.
