Benihana Cares Survey

What 1 customer says
Benihana is a great teppanyaki restaurant for not only food but entertainment. The place is unique in that you get the chefs to cook and also entertain in front of you on  a hot plate. My experiences had vary depending on the chef you get. Some chef put in their best effort to win applause while others just cook with minimal fanfare. Overall, food is good and worth the money. Their sushi is so so only though and if you want sushi, go to other Japanese restaurants.

I tired entering my 20 digit code on but it complains that it was unable to continue the survey. I am sure I typed the code in correctly on the site. Does the code expire? - June

grreat food and great service. i would come back again to Benihana. However, the wait can be long if you do not make a reservation. I had to wait more than 45 minutes on a Saturday afternoon just to get a table. Strangely, a few of the tables are empty though the host claims that they had been reserved. Next time, I would just book online. Be sure to fill up the survey on since you can get a $10 off coupon for it. - mary ann

I love the entertainment here. It was my first time with the kids and we were all taken by surprise by the show here. They cut onion rings and make smoke come out of it like a volcano. They juggle utensils and flip shrimp shells onto their hats and pocket. Certainly, something different to try when dining next. The chef cares about his customers because he made sure they get the food how they want it. It was great! - Don T

Benihana serves great food. Chefs are great. However, the waiters tend to disappear for long periods when you need them. - kurt

Both the food and entertainment were fabulous! Our chef, Adil, server,Joseph, and bartender, Nora, were all above the norm and made this a special Christmas celebration. We will definitely be frequent customers in the future! The location on the Intercoastal was also a plus. Thank you! - Dianne

Great place with kids. - Joe Wang

We have been having our New Years Eve dinner at Benihana for the last 28 years. This year our experience was awful. There were 10 of us at a table.
They were having issues with the air ducts above our table. We complained to
the manger that it was freezing cold. We were told that they would fix the problem when we were done eating. We were forced to eat our meal with our coats on and hat on to keep warm. If you are going to visit the Cherry Hill
location dress warm!! The management doesn't care about the comfort of the guest. We spent over $600.00 dollars for dinner and felt like we were eating
outside. They did not offer our party any compensation for the conditions
A cup of green tea during our dinner would have been nice. Something to warm us up!!We will be rethinking visiting here next year!! What a disappointment!!
- Mary

Awesome!!! Was the experience I had at Benihana's. Dinner was great and the sushi was superb. - Kimberly Edwards

Excellent food and consistency. Depending on the chef the entertainment can vary. It's obvious that they can all cook but they're not all showmen. Nevertheless, the food continues to be the reason for going. - SL Reynolds

We enjoyed our first visit to Benihana's very much. The waitresses were kind and helpful and the Chef (Poli) was excellent! He entertained and cooked very well. The food was delicious. We will definitely return for more. This time we will bring our grandchildren for they will get a big kick out of the chef throwing things up in the air as he cooks. Thank you for doing such a good job. - anonymous

We Always go to Beni Hana Dearborn Mi.Location Food is awesome Chefs are Awesome and the other guests are always entertaining. - Mike Mares

Have always loved Benihana's sushi bar. Have been going for many years. We used to go at least 3-4 times a week. We knew our sushi chefs by name and they new us. About a year ago Benihana must have started restructuring because before you knew it all of our beloved chefs were let go or went elsewhere when they saw the writing on the wall. This changed they way we saw Benihana from a friendly great place to eat where you were a known return customer with a warm greeting each time we came in, to now we don't recognize anyone behind the suchi counter and they NEVER carry on conversation or appear friendly. They don't ask anyone's name and no small talk. They obviously don't believe in customer satisfaction. Yes, the great sushi is a big part of the reason why people go, but an atmosphere with friendly, smiling staff who actually will TALK to you is everything! We now get to Benihana maybe once every couple of weeks and have found a few other sushi bars in the area that are very good and the staff actually know our names and talk to us. Change is not always a good thing. We were very disappointed when Benihana either let go or pushed out our favorite staff. Don't ever think that people won't go elsewhere to enjoy a meal that includes great conversation and smiling staff. It makes lets you know they love their job and like working there. - Cynthia Tenuta

Benihana's is the best. Awesome food, service and ambiance. Fresh and so tasty. We went to a Benihana wannabe restaurant in Chino Hills. It did not compare. Brought most of my food home and went on Monday, February 16th to Benihana in Anaheim and it is the BEST. Only rave reviews. - Sharon Nix

I love it every time it just make me keep coming back - lolita jones

To Whom it may concern,

My wife and I go to the Mall of America location. We have been there 2-3 times. Each time has been wonderful. We get greeted at the door with a smile when we walk in... We are seated at a nice table, one that we choose... The waiter, Erik,(who we had the last two visits) remembered us on our second visit (not by name) because we sat in his section. (we liked that he remembered us.)

Food and the service have been very good with each of our visits. We have not had any delays or wrong orders. When the food does arrive, we have enjoyed what we ordered.

We are looking at going to the Maple Grove, Minnesota location in the future. But we do like the Mall of America location...they remember us. How delightful. The little things matter to us. It tells us that the place has great customer service on their mind.

Thom & Denise. - Thom & Denise Rigger

Benihana is my favorite place to eat. More chefs are needed due to the high demand of customers arriving.I feel the reception area is too small and needs to be upgraded at the Dearborn,Michigan location. Also, it would be helpful to have a microphone when calling out the customers names. - Diana Clowney-Tyler

I have been here a few time and the food is always delicious. The Bartender Lisa, the Chef Ernesto, and the Server Victor were very nice and accommodating. The only issue was that we did not get the yellow or white onion cooked like a volcano like we received in the past. We got green onions, which I like, but it needs to be diced instead of just cut in half. Overall,the experience and food was good. - Angela Bradford

Great food & atmosphere!! Celebrated a Birthday at Benihana's, which is our family's tradition for over 40 years.
Some in our party had "Lamb Chops", which they claimed were just plain delicious. We all look forward to our next visit. - Stan Prager

My family and I really enjoy the food and of course the entertainment. My family and I always visit the Sugar Land location. Everyone of the staff members you have are the best. I will continue to visit Benihana for long time. - Jonathan Zou

We love Benihana Plano. The managers always take care of us and the chefs and waitresses are always professional.
Thank you! - Jill Seal

Went for my Grand Daughter's 16th Birthday party.
Food was good but somewhat slow. Chief had to call for missing
items on cart two times. We also had an individual with shellfish
allergies and he over looked it. fortunately a manager noticed
and removed his rice and brought a separate prepared from the kitchen which
was shellfish free. I ordered the Splash and Meadow and was not served extra shrimp with my meal only the appetizer shrimps. Overall the visit was fun, but disappointed with the overall service, and lack of attention to detail. - Judith

Maverick is the best. Always ask for him, also Lupe and Jordan were excellent with customer service - Steven Springer

My family has always great time in Benihana. The kids love the show and the food taste there. It is our favorite restaurant. - Samuel Samaan

My family and I enjoy the Benihana experience, however when we eat there, even for lunch, we never seem to get out of there in less than 3 hours, from the time that we arrive to the time we leave. I enjoy a leisurely meal, but 3 hours is at least an hour too long.

Went to Benihana's for dinner last night (9/30/16) and the service was great as usual. I had a coupon for my Birthday but didn't get to use it on my Birthday as originally planned because they were booked. So we decided to go on Friday instead. I was told by the server that the coupon is only used Mon-Thurs, which I failed to remember. The server kindly went to her manager and asked if they could honor it and he graciously let us use it. The service was excellent as always and I want to thank the manager for honoring our coupon. Will for sure to go back again and I recommend this place to others. The Chef's are excellent and very entertaining. Thanks again Benihana... - Marcie

Last night I had the best experience ever at any Benihana location (Farmington hills, MI). Very friendly employees, manager, great atmosphere and food. The Chef was wonderful. The best part you may ask? The waitress Dianca. She went over and beyond her job to take care of my family as well as the other family which shared our table. Her service was excellent! She is the true definition of exemplary and hospitality. Generous, friendly, kind, entertaining, helpful and attentive. The little girl at our table burnt her hand by accidentally touching the grill. The waitress immediately acted by grabbing some ointment for her hand. She also grabbed a manager in the process. That showed true kindliness. I usually never fill out surveys but I did twice for her. That young Lady deserves some recognition. Thank you again Dianca! - Karen

Great food and the ginger sauce is amazing!!!! - Lisa Matheus

Benihana has and still is the best place to eat lunch or dinner.Service us superb. - Gretchen Jones

Food was delightful. Sean was very personable and funny. Ann was very attentive. - Jessica

I usually dine in the Cincinnati area location. If I had to decide between the two, this location will win my vote. A couple of things (not so nice) stood out. 1- you are entitled to white rice and green tea with your course; however; they charge you an additional $3.90 to fry it...hum! Also you are only entitled to your green tea upon request. Well if it comes with the meal course shouldn't they offer it to you,your paying for it. I requested to have my white rice along with a paid order of fried rice. This sneaky practice leaves a bad feeling in me. - Sheryl Ralls

Benihana is my absolute favorite restaurant, and it has never disappointed me. I have been coming here for years, and will continue to do so, there is nothing else like it. They never cease to have quality food and service, and everything is always so good. I will continue to come here for years to come. - Danielle

Our chef was Dante, and he was excellent! He was so funny, and engaging! Our food was excellent!! Julia was our server, and she was very attentive! The whole experience was great! - Riad smaili
