About Benihana - Dallas
Welcome to Benihana and a dining experience unlike any other! Our guests are seated at communal tables in groups, 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. You can also enjoy sushi prepared by a talented sushi chef and indulge in a specialty cocktail. A visit to Benihana Dallas is like stepping into a Japanese country farmhouse among the bustle of the city. The restaurant is surrounded by a koi-filled lake. Guests cross a wooden bridge to the entrance and once inside, they are met with cordial greetings from the hosts. The restaurant consists of several smaller rooms which afford a sense of privacy; larger groups can opt for the four-table rooms located on either wing.

Benihana - Dallas Ratings and Reviews
I visit Benihana at least once a month. I quite enjoy the experience and the food is consistent. I mostly enjoy talking with the people seated next to us and learning about them while learning a little about our chef for the evening. I recently signed up for a sushi making event which I look forward going to with my wife at Benihana. All positive experiences in my opinion and they must if you haven't done Teppan-Yaki.
We visited this location to celebrate our daughter's birthday. This was her 1st visit and she was really excited. Needless to say, it was a total waste and disappointing experience. Let's start...1st we waited over 45 minutes to be seated after our reservation time. After we were seated the waiter brings our drinks and he asks "Are you guys celebrating anything special"? We tell him it's our daughters birthday. My 9 year old didn't get his drink with everyone else. He had to remind the waiter after 10 minutes that he forgot his drink. Let's not mention when the waiter came to refill our drinks he wasted coke down my son's back. It takes at least an hour for the chef to start cooking the food. This is where the fun begins. He ran out of fried rice once he got to us...5 of us with no fried rice. We are sitring there hungry while watching everyone else eat. He finally starts cooking our food and let's say his hibachi skills where really bad. The onion volcano..instead of lighting the onions on fire half the table was set on fire. He threw the shrimp tails on the floor vs the normal hat trick. The flipping of the egg trick he flipped the egg on my daughter plate and the egg cracks on her plate. We finally get fried rice at the end of the meal. The food lacked seasoning and was not fit for a dog to eat. I did speak with the manager and she gave us a 20% discount and she was apologetic about our experience. Which is the only reason why I gave this review 2 stars. I will never visit this location again. Remember it was our daughters birthday...and they never sang happy birthday or anything.
I visit this location often for lunch. On this occasion I sat in the dining area instead of the hibachi due to time constraints. This was the 2nd time I sat in the dining area for lunch and I was hoping it would better than the last time. It was just as bad. My food was cold and my waiter was not very attentive. There was a table near me that received their plates and they were steaming hot. There was also a customer waiting for To go food and was surprised to find half of her food ready and the other have still being prepared after 15 minutes of waiting. The waiter explained that they were really busy although it didn't seem that way. I feel on a Friday they restaurant should staff according to their customers needs. Anyway I plan to stay away from this location and visit the Plano location more often. I have yet to have a bad experience there.
The Teriyaki Sauce tasted more like Worcestershire Sauce than Teriyaki. It was poured over my steak and vegetables at the last minute and then scooped up and put on my plate. The Sauce wasn't even warm yet. I ended up eating about 2 bites of my meal and then concentrated on the fried rice. I won't be going back any time soon.
We went here for my mother's birthday since she was visiting from out of town. We loved it! The restaurant was really crowded, and you definitely need a reservation because there were people everywhere waiting. We loved the little pond/scenic outdoor view. Service was good and fast. The sushi was DELICIOUS... so good! Hibachi was great as usual. We will be back.
It took ages to get a table despite having reservations. The hostess would not make eye contact with us, which seemed odd. Portions have gone way, way down. I ordered steak, medium, and it was cooked to the point of being shoe leather. This place has gone downhill and is no longer worth the money.
The chef was amazing. He performed a few tricks throughout the meal and kept the table laughing and engaged. The food was great as well. I ordered the Yakisoba w/shrimp which is one of my favorites here. My date ordered steak and lobster stating he wanted to stay in his comfort zone for this experience although he'd never had the onion soup or experienced a 5 course meal in this way.
It was my date's first time there and he was completely smitten with the entire process from how we were seated(we sat at a table with a group of friends celebrating a birthday) to the meal preparation by the chef at the table. We actually had friendly conversation and got to know the group at the table quite well by the end of the evening. What a way to make new friends! And I also got a second date out of it.
