Benihana - Columbus

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!

"My husband and I went on a Friday night for a fun date-night. When we got there, there were little kids at every single table. We couldn't even request for one without kids, because they were everywhere. At at least $20 a plate, this was a "treat" to us and were hoping for a more relaxed and adult-friendly environment. The chef was great and food was good quality, but the whole experience was ruined by kids running around and screaming the entire time."

"As usual, the food were good. But the chef who cooked for our table looked like uninterested in cooking and serving us. We saw that some chefs (serve other tables) talked to the customers and did some fancy cooking actions... So most of my friends were a little bit upset. Overall speaking, it is still a recommended restaurant and I will definitely visit again!"

"This was a birthday meal for me. I took my kids with me. They are so entertained by watching the chef, and they love the food too! We all enjoyed the soup. I wish they had salad for the kids too. They ate mine. Our chef was very nice and I really enjoyed his tricks and presentation. Food was delicious. I got the salmon and really enjoyed it. One of my children got chicken (chicken nuggets, as the chef called them), and one got steak. They loved their dishes. Finishing off with a dessert was wonderful too. The green tea ice cream was a pleasant ending. The meal was supposed to include tea at the end. Despite the fact that I asked for it after completing the meal, it never came. That's really the only complaint I have. Everything else was wonderful! Thanks!"

"Celebrated our daughter's 25th birthday with 7 other family members. Setting up the appoint was so easy through OpenTable. Three people out of ten were not able to keep the reservation and Benihana was very accommodating. Food quality was great! Lunch prices more affordable as well. We were a little confused as how to tip the food preparer at our table. We ended over tipping probably. Tipped the preparer and also tipped 20% for the final bill. Not sure what is the standard for the hibachi grill experience. I will ask the manager or host/hostess what is typical next time. Recommend this Columbus Polaris location, everyone was very friendly and helpful!"

"We love going to Bennihanna's for dinner. We've never taken kids there (don't have any), but we've seen plenty of kids enjoying the preparation of the food. It's a little pricey, but we usually have left overs. The best sushi roll is the Vegas Roll, yummy."

"Would have been otherwise good as usual, however a party of 4 obnoxious people at our table. Lots of profanity and inappropriate talk. Our chef just took part. They should have been warned at least or even asked to leave. I expect better for what I'm paying for there. Wait service was also very slow."

"It was just like every other Japanese Steakhouse in the city; it wasn't bad, it wasn't great. The idea was great when Japanese Steakhouses first came on the scene, but now it is just a restaurant with higher prices because they have a gimmick. The food was okay, but since they cooked it in front of you, it's somehow better. Benihana does give lots of extra food, shrimp appetizer, chicken fried rice instead of vegetable fried rice."
