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.

Fantastic time at the restaurant; the chef was so friendly and entertaining. I went there for a birthday dinner for my mum, and they sang and brought out a candle and dessert. The whole evening was mesmerising. The staff were super helpful and made the evening so special!! Definitely worth a visit, dinner, and show all in one! Love it!

Food is freshly prepared. Chefs are technically proficient and personable. Service was pushy - ordered from the lunch menu and was told I could also order from the dinner menu (for a lunch date) . Made my decision and was asked if I wanted starters. Finished my meal and was given the bill seconds ( and I mean seconds) later "unless you want to order something else". This was a great experience marred by poor and pushy service

Service at the table was great, but was poorly welcomed and there was no readily available service at the bar when we were waiting for our table to become ready. Overall gave off a very cheap vibe.

Chef treated the wagyu as if it was a £10 steak rather than the £85 that it actually cost me!
Cooked it with the other steaks, didn’t let it get a good sear, turned it over quickly, cut it into uneven pieces (which meant the larger pieces were basically raw) and didn’t finish it with butter or anything and then chucked it in my plate. He spent more time preparing the other steaks than he did on mine...
Overall very disappointing considering with a couple of drinks and really no sides, including the “discretionary” 12.5% service, was a £120 odd flop of a meal; definitely won’t order the wagyu here again...

Our anniversary was complete with the amazing lunch at benihana. Our chef was so funny “greg” & we had a great time seeing our food made infront of us. The steak was so yummy & my boyfriend said his steak was the best steak he has ever tasted!!! Now that is saying something. It was a great atmosphere - lovely people and perfect to celebrate our anniversary. Even with the love heart egg fried rice. Thank you for making our day so great.
Just wish we had longer to choose our food as it was quite quick but it was only because so much yummy food was ok the menu
