The portions seem to get smaller & smaller. We noticed that the chef used butter on our steaks. That changed the taste as we did not like it.
The soup and the dinners do not taste the same as they have been all these years. At these prices, I expect the food to always taste the same and be of the highest quality.

The food was terrible. There was honestly nothing good I can say. The waitress mixed the entire tables orders randomly on the bills. The cook was not enthusiastic and just banged the utensils against the grill. The table next to us got leaked on. The whole evening was disappointing

Date with my honey and was seated with a family with 2 kids under 10 who were exceptionally rude and disrespectful. Felt most sorry for the couple at our table celebrating their anniversary.
Kids took up more tan their share of space, no consideration for the chef, did not listen when asked questions, spent more time on their phone playing games while their exceptionally rude parents spoke extremely loud with every person who walked past.
Won't be back

Had a "great" time !!! Food was "yummy" ! You can always depend on food being consistent & good ! Enjoyed getting together w/ my sister & having a terrific dinner !!! Love the "soup & salad " ....."dressing on salad " always soooo good ! Could be a "meal" all by them self's !

Our reservation was set and confirmed for 11:30 am on a Sunday. When we arrived we were informed the restaurant didn't open until 12 noon so we had a 30 minute wait outside the restaurant. We were seated with another group of 5. We ordered from the lunch menu and I literally got 4 bites of chicken and two shrimp as my entree. The kids at our table literally had tons more food from the kids menu. I left hungry. I'm not sure it was because I ordered from the lunch menu or the chef miscalculated the food (I was last to be served). I would have ordered from the dinner menu if I had known it was so little food. Very disappointed!!!

I have been to the Tempe Benihana and it was much nicer and the chef was far better. However our server was fabulous.
I went to this location due to it being closer to where I work but I will make the drive to Tempe next time.

This was not a good experience. They seemed to be unstaffed and couldn't keep up with the number of people. Our chef took forever to come and seemed to not want to be there and rushed thru everything. My mom confirmed her order but they didn't bring out the food to make the order. This became obvious when there wasn't enough chicken or steak based on what people ordered. When we questioned, the chef stated he confirmed she only has 2 chicken fried rice - but our server showed the chef her full order which he messed up. They remade her order - fast and it was under cooked. We had a bday at our table and they forgot which made the young girl sad. Everyone's food was not good and the manager did give a discount but didn't seem to care our entire table had a horrible experience. Every time we have gone here over the past 3 months this for birthdays or just dinner - it has been one bad thing after another. Management needs to get it together with their chefs, servers and hostess staff. We won't be going back and will go to Scottsdale the next time.

It was such a fun dinner for my birthday. My son who is 12 and doesn't like to leave the house and doesn't like many foods had fun and enjoyed his meal. It is fun to interact with chef. Chef Kevin did a fantastic job and took very good care of us! I think this might be our go-to place for family celebrations 😊

The meal was terrific. I have been going to Benihana restaurants for the past 40+ years. Our chef, Michael, was the best one I have ever seen...especially his egg trick. And Josiah was of the same caliber. By far, the best assistant. Keep both on your staff!!!

We have been numerous times ( 9 times) in past the two years for special occasions (BD, Anniversary) and alway very pleasant. Food is great, chief was entertaining and the service / servers were impeccable in detail.

The manager, waitress and chief we're all great and friendly as well as helpful. I like this Benihanas much better than the one in Scottsdale, this Benihana actually serves you hot soup and hot tea the way it's supposed to be served.

The cost would have been justified if the service was better. Our cook didn't realize that our server hadn't brought out the food to complete our dish (steamed rice) so I literally had a plate piled with grilled onions and a chicken breast! We had to catch our server just to get one refill on water and simple drinks and we repeatedly had to ask to get the little table space cleared. It is a multi course meal the server should be available to clear salad and soup dishes before the entree is served. Not impressed and will most likely not visit again.

Took the in laws out to dinner and was super thankful that the chef and our waiter were ever so attentive to their requests in Spanish! I love a company who values diversity and is always striving to make everyone feel included.
