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.

We waited over a hour at our table for the chef to arrive, our starters where brought out after he started cooking the mains and we had to ask x3 for them. The meal was then rushed by the chef as he was late and our birthday celebration was not acknowledged. Food was nice but whole experience spoilt our evening

As always, the food at Benihana was delicious and absolutely faultless. However I was made to wait nearly an hour for my pre-cooked table, i was then wedged into a table in the corner by the door, meaning I was catching a cold draft all evening.
Chef was brilliant, reception woman was grumpy and rude, and clearly didnt want to be there.
I wont be going back to this branch, Kings Road will be my preferred choice from now on.

I had read some poor recent reviews on Benihana. I had been to Benihana in the past when they were in Finchley and loved it for special occasions. I took our daughter and her family to Benihana Piccadilly on 1 December 2019 for her birthday.
We liked the fact that our seating was spread out. Sound levels were low. The staff looked after us - if a bit slow with the drinks. They were all helpful, courteous, kind and efficient. The food was excellent (5 stars) and of course the food preparation was an entertainment in itself - the chef was very skilled.
Thank you Benihana. You will be in our family's books for a long time.

You have to share a table, so one needs to be sociable, also very noisy but that’s part of the experience. If you’re lucky to get a mad chef then it’s great fun watching their skilled routines with the knives.

Lovely fresh food straight from the hot plate to your bowls. All in all great fun !

A great experience, our chef Luke was great fun and the food was amazing. Unfortunately the rest of the staff weren't great, taking food away without asking if we were finished. The manager was very helpful when we raised this issue

Rarely have a bad visit to Benihana, we went for birthday which was fun, although it might have been better with more people on our table but it was still good. Not a cheap night out though, so take the credit card!

I have been here so many times but it seems to be decreasing in value. Yes the staff are friendly polite but the food and the atmosphere wasn't that great on Wednesday. The steak was tough and not that tasty as i would have expected for the money.

It's a great shame. The dinner was meant to be a special occasion but the chef who was very nice did not entertain as much as the Japanese chefs. Our Sake had a fly in it so had to be changed. The whole experience was disappointing unfortunately for my fiancè who's birthday it was. We wanted a really entertaining table but the other tables had very entertaining chefs. We were deflated

love this place, been many times. Can get very loud.
Need a chef who will entertain, also to be welcomed with a smile would be nice.
We walked in to a girl who looked like she would rather be anywhere but at work
When I asked her to give me a smile she said why!

I have dined at Benihana on a number of occasions and once again this visit proved to be wonderful. The food was excellent, and it is more like having entertainment than having a meal. First class highly recommended.
