Benihana - Indianapolis Ratings and Reviews
We chose this restaurant for a birthday party get together. Our waitress was either really scatter brained or had way too many tables to take care of. We had to ask several times for our drink refills. There would be long periods of time we did not see her. The cook was nice and fun. The food was good (average), but the amount you received for the prices was crazy! (In a bad way) We did not get very many vegies at all and we had to pay xtra for the fried rice. We were supposed to get steamed rice which we got about 5 minutes after the cook left our table. Two of the girls in our party sat under an air conditioning vent which kept leaking water drops on them the entire dinner.
The birthday girl had a good time but my thought is the food is way way over priced and I will not be back.
We celebrated my boyfriend's birthday and had a great time. Food was delicious and Pedro was a great cook and fun to watch, and our waitress was Lauren and she could not have been more attentive and fun. Thanks for making this visit so pleasant as our last experience was not as good.
I have been coming to Benihana's for years. We come for lunch and for dinner. We visit this restaurant at least 3-4 times a month. This visit I felt like they are losing their awesome vibe. Food was good-like always. But the atmosphere was more of a noisy and dirty atmosphere.
Sad for us because our family loves your restaurant more than any restaurant in the Indy area.
To add icing on the cake.....Our visit was a Saturday Sept 23rd 2017 and they just billed my credit card today October 5, 2017. Who bills a credit card almost 2 weeks later. I hope things go back to the way they were before so we can continue to come a lot. Thank you for listening.
It was my fiancé’s birthday. We traveled from Fort Wayne. Food tasted great, portions are smaller than Sapporo . But the staff were great. As well as our chef . Table space is a bit crowded but overall We had a great time and would definitely recommend this place.
This was my worse experience at Benihana's. My lobster tail was over cooked. I ordered a sushi roll before my meal and I did not receive it until after the chef was done preparing our meal. The server cried thoughout our entire meal. I mean tears coming down and face bright red. We tried to encourage her but she responded negatively. The supervisor came to the table and we asked him what was wrong with her and told him she was crying. He brushed it off like he didn't care. We were there to celebrate my birthday which we had to remind her several time after I provided her my birthday certificate.
I took my fiancée here for her birthday. She couldn't be more happy. She loved the service, food and just couldn't stop talking about it on the way home. Keep in mind, we've been here before, but she described it and talked about it non-stop as if it was our first time. She wants your recipe! Keep up the good work. I look forward to another visit. Thanks.
Order was wrong even after pointing to it on menu and confirming it with cook. There was a bug in my soup. I was given the wrong drink and when I questioned it, I was told it was the correct drink. My bill had the name of the incorrect drink that I was given. The chicken was over cooked. This was a bad experience. It will be quite a while before I am willing to return.
I have really enjoyed my experiences here in the last but this was an exception. Despite having a reservation our dinner did not begin for another 1.5 hours. I'm not sure what the point of having a reservation was. We ordered a bottle of wine and the waitress did not know how to use a corkscrew, it was awful to watch and embarrassing for us in front of the rest of the table. Additionally, she took our orders and then when the chef arrived our orders had all been communicated incorrectly. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and it was supposed to be a special night but it was anything but. I don't think I will return and now I will be taking my husband out to dinner again to try to make his birthday a bettter memory.
The service and food was good but I did not like the "Happy Birthday" activities. Three people in our group were celebrating birthdays. The birthday celebration group did not come by our table. I asked the server for the customary group picture. Initially no one came till I asked again. Then the person who came did not say a word, did not ask us to smile but just took the picture when none of us were ready. I have had better experiences for birthday celebrations there.
It was a dissapointing experience. The timing was off between our chef and our server. We were never given salads. The rice came out after most of us were nearly done with our entrees. This was even after three requests for the rice. We were also never offered the hot tea that was supposed to come with our meals. It just seemed like no one knew what was going on. This was my husband's first time eating there and I felt so bad about how dissapointing the whole process was. We spent over $200 and I would have rather spent that money somewhere else.
Taz was our chef and he was incredible. He was so caring toward my two little boys and my 89 year old grandmother; everyone had an awesome experience because of him. It's evident that he takes pride in his job. We'll definitely be requesting him next time we come!
We have been visiting your site since it opened, twice a year. We look forward to family birthday celebrations there (we have one cluster in March, one cluster in August). With that many visits to compare against, unfortunately I have to say our recent visit was poor - which is the ONLY visit in that entire time I could rate as poor. NO negatives on the chef. We felt constantly rushed by our server. With our food just being recently served and the chef just leaving the table, the server came out with clamshells for leftovers. We sent her back. We had not finished our meals and she came out with a platter of ice cream. We sent it back. At one point, I looked back to see if the lobby was full of guests, thinking we must be holding the train up - no it was empty, we were at the end of the evening with other tables empty and full. Did she have a doctors appointment she was late for? A hot date? If she was in that kind of a rush, she should have handed our table off to another server so she could leave. Sorry, left a bad taste in my mouth after a great meal.
As an aside, I was glad we asked to have an additional group photo taken with one of our phones. The supplied picture of our group was so red-toned, it looked as if we were either totally sunburned, or the building was on fire.
Hopefully a better experience next time?
This was the worst experience ever! Place was dirty, service was extremely rude and slow. Took about 30 min after ordered for a glass of wine and then it was incorrect. Had to pay extra for fried rice which is typically included in hiabiatchi style restaurant. Server of food was quiet not engaging at all . They then messed up our bill and even after a week a credit hasnt been applied which included getting the manager involved. We thought we were gonna get an upscale experience and it was the worst ever. Dont waste your time or $$ at this restaurant!
Worst experience we have had at Benihana is Decades! We have been celebrating birthdays at Benihana since I was a kid and we will never do it again. Service was horrible. An hour and a half before we were even served salads and soup. The steak was paper thin about the thickness of thick bacon. Very disappointing. We didn't get to sing happy birthday and did not get the traditional Benihana picture. When we spoke to the manager her reply was "you can leave" We will never go back again. I don't know what has happened but not even close to what we expect from Benihana. Just horrible.
The waitress barely knew the menu when I was ordering my food she was telling me that " we don't have that" yes you do have this it's right here on your menu. So she had to read the menu for every single person at the table ordering. She charged us for chicken fried rice when all we wanted was just fried rice. "But as she said you guys don't do just fried rice" I ordered a water, my daughter ordered a water, my boyfriend ordered a lemonade. The water came out for the whole table and she didn't put ice in the water so it was luke warm which was GROSS. My boyfriend never got his lemonade after asking the waitress several times for it. I had to personally get up go to the bar and ask for a cup of ice so I could have cold water for my daughter and I. Then I got up again to get a cup for the couple next to me. We asked the waitress to take our wine glasses several times as we where not drinking this is the whole table she never did she never took our salad our soup bowls as you know there is not a lot of room on the table so we put the dirty dishes behind us, since we where next to a wall and we told the waitress, the dishes where still there when we left. I spent 60 dollars on horrible service, there are many restaurants like this I don't have to come back to this one if you can't get good help. Your waitresses are lazy and they don't want to work. You ask them to do something they have an attitude with you. It'll be awhile before I come back here. Was not worth the money to be treated so rudely.
