Benihana - Encino

Welcome to Benihana and a dining experience unlike any other! If you’ve never been to Benihana before, let us tell you what you can expect: Our guests are seated at communal tables in groups of eight to ten, where your personal chef will perform the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Watch as we slice and dice, preparing a meal that will dazzle your eyes as well taste buds, whether you choose mouth-watering steak, tender chicken or succulent seafood.



Or you can visit our sushi lounge where a talented sushi chef will prepare the freshest sashimi, maki and signature sushi rolls with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine. Smaller tables and more intimate seating is available in the lounge or bar on a first-come, first-served basis, whether you’re looking to enjoy one of our delicious Benihana Teppanyaki entrées or our amazing selection of sushi!

"Wait staff was very pleasant, the chef's always give a good "show" and it's fun to watch your food being cooked in front of you. The food is good, but not always consistent. Last month the soup wasn't as tasty this time, but last month the chicken fried rice was more flavorful than this time. The menu is quite varied, although a bit pricy, but there is always enough left overs for another full meal. My friend and I each go on our birthdays and take advantage of the $30 birthday coupon in our inbox."

"Benihana is my sisters favorite. We took her there for her birthday. The food was delicious. The chef was sweet and funny. The waitress was a little intense but she was fine certainly not over attentive refills on drinks where infrequent. But I would still highly recommend this place I've never had bad food or time there."

"It was really busy three items were forgotten the lady taking the order forgot to write down my daughters smoothie drink down then a sushi plate was never brought out before the cooking began. Then the cook finished everything and left then came back because he forgot to cook my daughters white noodles. In the end we got everything a lil late but we got it. But our server was nice and our cook was funny too. Would come back"

"Food was awesome. They were very accommodating. I originally had a reservation for 6 people on a Saturday. I needed to add three more people last minute and they were able to accommodate the last minute change. Kind of pricy but it's a good place for special occasions and very family oriented. I love the fried rice! It's the best I've had so far."
