Benihana - Anaheim

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!



An 18% service charge is added to all guest checks for parties of eight or more.

"The wait to be seated was ridiculously long; and even though we had a reservation, we still had to wait 45 minutes to be seated. And the hostesses continued to lied and say that our party was next but kept seating other parties ahead of us."

"I took my husband of 35 years here for his birthday since we use to come here when we were dating & celebrating birthdays with friends. The prices have certainly changed as well as the portions. The food was still great! Drinks pricey! My husband was disappointed that fresh pineapple wasn't still a desert choice with Rocky's Special Meal. We also missed the foil wrapped leftovers like a duck! So sad things have to change."

"The food never disappoints at Benihana and the chef had a decent performance. The seating is always a bit tight but this particular night we were seated in the back where they had just cleaned the carpets. There was a terrible moldy smell that ruined our dining experience. If you go to Benihana Anaheim do not sit in the back room."

"Took my BF for his Birthday since it's his favorite place. I'd never been. The food was OK. Food lacked flavor. Our server was great though...wish I would have remembered her name. She was very attentive."

"I've been to this Benihana several times. I've normally had excellent service. Tonight, however, was a very bad exception. Waited almost 5 mins in the bar to even get a waiter. The bar was empty. We walked passed the waiter when we sat down. There was no way he did not know we were there. When the drinks did come, no napkins. He was more interested in showing us the website to do reviews. We were seated with no problem and our drink orders were prompt. However, I noticed after our food orders were taken, the chef had to go back into the kitchen once, asked the server to go back to the kitchen 2 seperate times to get the main food items needed. The chef also just seemed kinda lost. He needed to keep looking down at the orders to figure out what to make and where to put it when done. When I don't know what happened, but the whole night just seemed off. I will go back because I love the restaurant and the way things are done. But, if I have another night like the last, I will reconsider going here again. On top of all that, when it came time to get the bill, it took 10 mins before the waiter showed up. Again, just an off night I hope."

"the food and chef were great just the service of the waitress was poor. she didn't bring napkins never asked if we needed refills she would disappear for long periods of time . she also forgot to add the birthday certificate and we felt rushed to eat. I love Benihana and the food and I don't mind the price when it's worth it but when it's bad service like this it's a lil hard to lay the price."

"The service was below average. Our waitress got orders wrong, brought out appetizers too late, forgot items that were ordered and gas to be reminded. She served ice cream with no spoon and hot all the bills wrong. She was just all over the place. By far this was the worse service I have received from this particular location."

"We went for a 44 bday dinner. Ages 7 to 79. The 7 year old thought it was like Kwan doe with food. Food kept coming and we never waited for refills on drinks. Watching my kid enjoy every bite and my father watching him enjoy it was perfect night. My kid is Avery picky eater and he loved all of it!! Thanks and we will be making Benihana a more then just special occasion place."

"Our chef was young and obviously new. Everything, all of it, was overcooked badly. The quality of the steak has declined dramatically. As an example, the strip streak was only credit card thick.
Overall, way to expensive, poor presentation, poor quality and poor preparation.
We've been to Benihana on family outings many times...this was the worst and will give us pause in the future."
