We had a fantastic night celebrating my husbands 30th Birthday. Everything from beginning to end was great! Our chef ‘Luke’ was great fun! Food was amazing and everyone was so accommodating!

Thank you

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

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.

Although the food was slightly expensive, the amount of food you get with each meal option is amazing, honestly didn’t expect to get the starters as a part of the meal too meaning that the value for money was great! The quality of the food was extremely good and tasted lovely. The chef was also very friendly and entertaining. Not only was how he cooked entertaining but the chef himself was also very funny and involved you in the cooking. Definitely recommend, very nice food and we enjoyed ourselves!

Our chef was called BAZ I believe, he was from the Philippines.
He was very entertaining and it was such a treat for my family.
It was my Niece’s first time there. My mum very much enjoyed it as did we all! Food was absolutely delicious and plentiful. Chef was very knowledgeable on the ingredients used.

We came in and got seated very quickly, my partner had asked for a mint tea in which he had got given mint leaves and water, which was very disappointing, he then asked for a lemonade which we got lemon and soda water which resulted to me asking to just get a normal coke, which the server was very patient about. Other than that greetings from the staff was very friendly as well as the chefs. The experience of the chef cooking took about 10-15 minutes for the both of us as we had ordered from the 2 mains for £29. I personally did not realise that it was 2 mains for £29 Per person which I was kind of disappointed about and felt like what we had spent was quite a lot. For the portion which was given and the quality of the food we also didn’t even receive the dessert on the menu and I was disappointed as they didn’t have any signature cocktails which was something that I was looking forward to.
As an overall I’ll give the restaurant a 3/5. Personally I am 50/50 in recommending the restaurant to family and friends

We ordered food and didn’t get what we asked for. When the bill came we got given the wrong bill. When confronted with the manager he was very rude and didn’t want to listen and said we have to pay this. We wanted, and stated on the website 2 mains for £35!! This is false advertising where actually they charge £35 per person. What we got was not 2 mains. You actually get 2 small amounts of meats that you ask for. When I said to the manager so this is 2 mains that I got? So half of that is 1 main meal. The amount was like a child’s portion, well not even. When I told him that it is not stated any where that it is per person he refused to listen. So we refused to pay. Finally he knocked off a main meal. I’ve never had this in the chelsea branch and prefer that one. It’s clean and the atmosphere and experience was much nicer. I will never go to the Piccadilly branch again. Very bad experience especially as it was our anniversary!!
