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.

What an amazing meal, cooked by a chef right in front of you, at your table. We were a party of four and each and every one of us came away happy. The food was excellent, service was top class and it was just a brilliant experience. A little on the expensive side but hey, you get what you pay for in life!

I have wanted to come here since I was a kid ( since seeing the restaurant in 80's movies) I'm now 45yrs old , Saturday was my first time at Benihana
We were celebrating three birthdays ( 10yr;13yr; and my wife's age even I don't know)
I can categorically see it was a massive hit with everybody
Thank you all

Cant wait to come again

The services was offered by an extremely arrogant waiter. She was rude to my children. She literally ruined my daughters birthday celebration. Chef Luke made it better later on but the damage was already done.

Had a wonderful dinner with friends, including one couple’s 9 year old son. Our chef, Charlie, was fantastic and really engaged with all of us but particularly the boy who was thrilled! The food was delicious and super good value as we were able to make use of the early bird special menu. My only criticism is the decor is a little tired but soon forgotten with the excitement of the meal.

Friday night dine out with friends. Restaurant was quite busy and we have waited a bit longer than what we expected before we get our food. (Around 45mins) Food was good as usual! I have been to this chain many times but I think will give a second thought next time before goes in.

Buon ristorante e originale.
Troppa confusione, aerazione scadente visto che si ci cucina tutto a vista e le piastre un po' usurate. Vale comunque la pena provare almeno una volta questo ristorante.

As always a very fun place to go and eat, the staff and chef are very friendly and entertaining. It does have a high price point to it’s not an everyday dining option but they also often have great offers on. Would definitely recommend

Great experience in total, enjoyed how creative they were with cooking the food.
I asked for my steak to be cooked medium rare and it came back more cooked than well done..
This was the same for everyone at my table.

I mentioned this to the staff as i was leaving but they were not very responsive and just said that they will inform the landlord. I expected better considering the amount we spent.

Second time here and first time for my sister as it was her birthday. She said it was lovely but could of been better the taste of the food as well as the atmosphere! Also we got a menu with desserts but we was not really comfortable asking as staff were packing our table for us, maybe they were waiting for us to suggest so we did! Everything was lovely though and I would always come back for the experience! Just a small let down, one of our dessert bowls was not washed properly. Other than that it was amazing.

Food ok though beansprouts were tasteless . Only one of our 3 had tepanyaki .
Some of the most irritating and inappropriate thumping background music we have eversuffered .
Strong smell of hot oil all the time ( extractor fans substandard )
For 50 £ a head its not good value... though the white chateau neuf du pape was wonderful .
Chef and "waiter" were professional

Not for what it is worth - the service is mediocre at best apart from the teppanyaki chef, who did an excellent job. The quality of food was quite high, but so was the price! I considered the dinner more of an experience and not a good 'meal'.

Great food and atmosphere and it was halal too! However only chicken and wagyu beef.
Dont think it was worth the money though as many of the sauces were haram so we pretty much ate tasteless meat with slightly sauteed veg, but glad i tried. The service from the waitress was amazing but since the bill came up to 114 ... definitely not going back.

Compared to other hibachi restaurants that I’ve been to, Benihana provided the least amount of food for the highest price. Other places I’ve been to give soup, vegetables, meat, and rice for a fair price and my husband and I payed over £90 for some rice and meat. Way overpriced and would not recommend.
