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 was told during my last visit that the chicken was halal and now it’s not which annoyed me very much as it limited my choices as well as the fact that my meal was supposed to come onion soup and I had to miso soup because the onion soup is not halal either and the main reason I come to Benihana’s is for the onion soup I am outraged

It was fun but very over priced and a bit grubby. Service was hit and miss, waiter was great hostess who took us to our table was rude.

Dining out is all about the overall experience. Not only was the food excellent (shogun’s feast and seafood palace), the preparation and presentation by the master of ceremony and our Teppanyaki chef Charlie was just right and brought a smile to all the table guests.
A word of advice - do not dress to warmly as the grill will warm you quickly and throughout.

We had a fantastic evening at Benihana’s, the chefs were amazing, very entertaining ! The food was tasty but actually, for the amount of food you get, quite expensive. I would definitely recommend it as an experience but personally now I’ve been there and experienced the showmanship and theatrical way the food is cooked, I wouldn’t rush back. I would spend the money in a different Japanese restaurant. (We were 2 adults and 2 kids, my husband and I only had 2 drinks each and the whole bill came to £230! I know London is expensive but this was really expensive!)

Service was great we did sit for awhile before our food was cooked. The portions you pay for are not that big. I did leave a little hungry still with ordering the lunch menu and asparagus on the side.

I came for my birthday and booked 2 tables for my friends and I. It was my birthday and I requested to sit in the same area as it’s a special occasion and nothing was taking into consideration, poor poor service and lack of empathy.

Benihana is a good place to come for an occasion or when looking to take out visiting family or friends.
The food itself was ok but nothing more. Its the entertaining way they prepare the main course in front of you that does it and that is what you pay for. I had sirloin steak and had better elsewhere.
It took nearly 1hr for the chef to come to our table to start cooking. Although we had drinks and starters in that time.
The prawns were nice as was the strawberry kiss mojito.
Quite pricey for food that isn't that great. However, staff were entertaining and friendly and overall vibe was good
