Benihana - Minneapolis

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!

"When you visit "Benihana " be prepared for an immersive experience that brings the customer to asian fine dining. The chef will entertain you while preparing your selected meal. The waiting staff will occupy themselfs taking drink and Meal orders to leave and soon return with our beverages. Later the staff wheels out a carte filled with the materials to create our orders. If there is any reason to celebrate the staff will do so after the meal is finished."

"I have been going to Benihanas for years. The tuna steak is cooked perfectly for me every time I order it. The dinner is fun, and the watching someone else cook is worth every penny. It is a fun atmosphere which will keep you coming back for years."

"Out waitress was slow on refills of water and soda. Chef was good. We had four people at our table that were constantly on their phones which ruined our experience. If a person wants to take pictures, I am OK with that, but calling people and being on the phone through the hour and a half we were there was ridiculous and rude. How about a "no cell phone" policy except for pictures? One lady was not paying attention at all and it was rude to the chef also."

"I was extremely disappointed in this visit to the golden valley location. We normally go to the maple grove location but we recently moved south of the cities and golden valley is closer. Going forward we will be making the hour+ long trip to maple grove because we were so disappointed.
-not offered chop sticks (we had to ask for them)
-food was really salty
-chef was rushed
-not offered green tea (we had to ask for it)
-multiple servers came for drink/food orders and they seemed confused as to who should be helping us
-new bowl for dipping sauce smaller (I love the yummy sauce)
-limited ice cream choices available and ice cream is not as good as in the past (favorite was the Hagen Das strawberry)
-miss the dinner for two specials (we visited restaurant more when there was dinner for two specials)

"The service was the worst benihana service i have experienced. It was too crowded. The chef dropped the food on the table and picked it up with the spatula and placed it on my plate like it was no problem. Management was awful and rude they tried to make excuses for the poor service after I tried to get their attention for 10 minutes. The table was too crowded because the waitress did not pick up the empty plates and bowls. We didn't get the necessary refills like we should of. The waitress at the end left the table after taking pictures of the people at the table and didn't bring the pictures back for over 20 minutes. She didn't sing the birthday song after being told that it was a birthday at the table. But the same waitress sang the happy birthday song to the table next to us. I will NEVER go to this restaurant again."
