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 loved absolutely everything about dining in Benihana. The food was delicious and certainly high quality, the staff were polite and friendly. My server was very helpful, plus I got to see some of the cooking theatrics from the chefs.
My only gripe was simply I hated the music that was on - it was very modern chart type music which is thumpy and heavy dance type rhythm - it was also a little loud for me. I prefer eating to calmer music. If they could change this it was be a 12/10 for me!! I would love to eat here again.

We had Charlie at our table cooking for us…he was fantastic. He really was witty and got my kids really involved. I’d love to go back and love to have him as the chef at our table.

Overall it was a good experience. It would have been better if our chef was more energetic and did more.

It was not clear whether payment was to be made at the table or at the counter, waited for some time due to this.

Food was great and very feeling, slightly pricey.

The chiefs were brilliant
The atmosphere can be a bit more cheerful but if it wasn’t for the chiefs it’s a bit dull and quite
The staff were amazing and helpful
The food was nice but a bit overpriced

Took my mum for a nice lunch, the energy from the chefs were a little calmer than what I remember (when I went a few years ago) but overall, food quality was still good and value was great as well. Definitely somewhere to go for a casual nice meal.

I took my friend there for her birthday and we enjoyed a beautiful dinner and was hosted by Tom who was an excellent chef with lots of jokes to keep the table laughing and smiling. They even sang happy birthday to my friend which was a nice added touch. I definitely recommended going and I will definitely be going again

Another great dining experience, but it ain't cheap !!
It has to be a special occasion to do the menu justice.
We had a great meal, cocktails etc £200+ for two but another couple on our table had veggy option & no alcohol and spent £50.

It was very mediocre for the price we paid, not worth it at all. The food was made really well but the seasoning was absolutely non existent. Wasn’t the best. So sorry to say this as the chef was really entertaining & the service was good.

Great for a special occasion, or just to try a hibachi meal for the first time. Food was great, chef was entertaining and funny. Expect to not eat for the first 30 mins of your reservation, a lot of waiting at the beginning but was made worth it by the meal. Was my husbands birthday, the chef asked when cooking. At the end of the meal they brought out a complimentary choc ice cream for him which was so tasty, whilst singing happy birthday.
