Benihana - Houston Ratings and Reviews

This experience was much better than my last visit to the downtown benihana resturant. We were seated promptly and the waitress was very personable and polite. At the downtown location we waited 30mins to be seated and another 20 for our order to be taken them there was am insect crawling on the table. This was a much better ambiance and service. The chef was entertaining as well.

Have been several times for lunch and always get a salad w my soup. This time lady was rude about it saying they no longer do that and others in table got a salad and soup ? She hardly would check on us and soup was super salty... I'll stick to coming for dinner only

We really enjoy our trips to Benihana's. The overall experience, each time we have been there is very good. We recommend the restaurant. The luncheon choices on our last visit were varied and the cost was very reasonable. Each time we visit we have found the , restaurant, the service and the staff to be very attentive and helpful.

We were all on time for the reservations and still had to wait, once we were seated they took our order and waited some more, the cook arrived and we had not gotten our soup nor salad. When the soup came it was cold. The soup and salad were brought at the same time while the cook was cooking. The cook did not do the shrimp in the hat, the train, or anything else to make it fun. My drink which was water was not refilled. We had pictures taken as it was my sons birthday and we never saw or was given any information about the photo.

The Benihana experience is always a great one. My wife and I have dined there on Christmas Eve for the last 3 years.
If I could recommend anything it would be to develop a few different routines for the chefs. As this was our third consecutive year, we were pretty much one step ahead of the chef in regards to what was next. The first year had us in suspense as we were excited to see what the chef was going to do next in the preparation of the meal.
Never the less, the food and chef entertainment is a must for the up coming year.

The Chef we had was not good at all. I have been to this location numerous times and always enjoyed the entertainment and the food. I did not enjoy neither. My waiter was very attentive but other than that I will not be visiting this location again.

Server and chef did not speak much english. They did not know what I ordered and got it wrong. Chef wasn't as trained and didn't perform as well as others there. He also skipped through his performance and didnt do any tricks. Very disappointed. Also the waitress told me fried rice was only a dollar extra and turned out to be $4.
