Benihana - Indianapolis Ratings and Reviews

Always good but this time we had EMETERIO as the chef and he was amazing. Asked him where he was from and apparently was at Benihana Chicago, and it showed. Put on a great show and more importantly the food was prepared wonderfully. Usually the only time we get exceptional preparation like this is when we visit the Benihana at Disney-Orlando. We will definitely want Emeterio again!
It's been a long time between visits for my wife and I. The last time we visited Benihana was In Chicago for my wife's birthday the first year of our marriage. This visit was to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary. The food this time was much more satisfying than the Chicago visit. The skill of the young masterful chef was no less than inspiring. Hope he's being compensated well. Would recommend to anyone seeking a fun, reasonably priced, and different dining experience.
Excellent food as usual, Jorge is a great chef to get! Wait time for a chef was quite long, even with a reservation, but we were taken care of with a discount to offset the very long wait.

One of the best meals I have ever had. Went to enjoy the fun of watching the chef but the food ended up being the highlight.

Had a problem with restaurant reporting me as no show for dinner. I was there with a party of 8. Called manager and had to make another bogus reservation because there was no way to fix their mistake with Open Table. This ruined my Mother's Day celebration!

We attended Benihana's for Mother's Day this Sunday and everything was excellent, just like all previous visits..!!
The timing is absolutely horrible
I'm a reservations for party of two I arrived early I had to wait, I ordered right away I had to wait and additional 30 minutes until the cook came out to prepare our meals. And then the meal took 40 minutes to prepare. That is a very long time to eat lunch
Probably okay for the younger set.
Food was good but we didn't care for some of the odd sides. We felt a nice steak at other upscale restaurants would be a better experience for the money.
Hostess staff weren't the best
My reservation was at 8 but didn't get seated until 840. The host staff said its busy and nothing can be done other that wait. I was getting ready to leave when I decided to wait another 10 mins. Once at the table everything was great.

Waited 45 minutes at our table for the chef with no explanation. Chef was friendly and quality of meal was good.

This USED to be my families favorite special occasion restaurant. Tonight was the worst waiting service and smallest portions of salad and fried rice I have ever had in the 20+ years eating there, not to mention that we didn't even see the waitress to order a second cocktail. We were very disappointed and not sure if we will be back!

me and my family have Benihana for dinner maybe about once or twice a week! The food never gets old and always is so delicious!

Amazing food at usual! This was for my birthday and I enjoyed every bit of it. I come every year on my birthday for sure.
Benihana is my happy place
No matter what location in what city, the food is consistently delicious, the show the chefs put on is entertaining and adds to the dining experience. Wait service across the brand is lacking a bit, so you might wait for drink refills and check returns, but it's totally worth it.
Good time for a birthday
The whole family likes this place. Birthday song with instruments and a photo give it a special touch.

Great server. Always a fun time at Benihana's.
Very good. I have never had a bad meal there
Service was excellent; Sake was very warm; Food was beyond delicious. Couldn't expect any better.

A little expensive but delicious, better than all the local hibachi grills I have been to in Indy. The chef was awesome but the server was just ok.
Had a poor experience due to management not having the power to authorize or override birthday coupon
Enjoyed Jorge our chef and had a wonderful waitress, unfortunately can't remember her name but she was very attentive to our table and stayed on top of things. We really enjoyed our visit and the food was superb. Would recommend!
Had a great dinner my grandson. The service was a little slow but the chef was very entertaining.
Good Food, Bad Service
The Chef and food were great but the server, not so much. I asked 3 times for a tea refill and 4 times for a kid's sprite refill before they ever arrived. It seems once you are seated and the server does their initial thing, you are forgotten forever!

Great service, the chefs are always entertaining
Great Food, Service Is Okay
The last couple of visits it has been very difficult to get the old "birthday celebration" from the staff. We usually bring big groups in on birthdays but have started to consider other options. Still enjoy the food but tired of begging for the birthday experience. Very dissapointing!
Great food, poor service
As always the chef and food were great. The bar service was very good and received our drinks quickly. The waitress once we were at the hibachi was slow and rude as always. I've been going for years quite frequently and the service has never changed for the better. Make sure to verify your order with the chef and also order your drinks faster than you normally would. It's a good 10-15 min turnaround before you will see the waitress again.
We had a couples fellowship & dinner for church couples ministry at Benihana's. Every couple enjoyed the food, service and enjoyed our chef. We had several couples come who have never been to a Japanese Steak House. Everything was excellent !
We eat here a lot. My son loves the place. He's 20 btw. Service was the worst we've had. Asked for drinks twice and our sushi twice. Our food got to table just before first drink. Other tables not that slow. Had 7:30 reservation. 8:20 before we had human contact. Hope it was a fluke. Would have left if not for my son. You should thank him
Great show great food fair price but under staffed.
No too happy!
I was very surprised that the bar/dinning area was not very clean at all. The tables not wiped and cup had something on it as if it had not been clean. We first went to sit at the bar and have dinner as well. But the bar was setting up. Crazy considering it was Valentine's Day so of course it is busy and things should have been together. Also in the dinning/bar area it came across as if this areas is not take care as much as the more popular area. So sad because I loved this place until good into this area. Plus with the price for food and drinks I could have went somewhere else.
The service is always great. The food is excellent and I enjoy coming it is a great environment

This was our first visit and I'm sure it won't be our last. When we first got in to check in for our time the greeter was a little rude but I figured she was overwhelmed. The place was packed. We were early for our check in and we're still seated immediately. Our table was great. We sat with some fun people. I ordered the sea n land. So I had sea scallops and steak and it was amazing. The steak melted in my mouth and the fun sauces they serve with the meal were great too. I can't wait to go back. Also it was a lot of food. So for the price we paid it was worth it.
Good as always
We go to a lot of Japanese Restaurant's and this is the best by a long shot.....
I had my two sons and nephew with me and it was still an amazing experience! To see the smiles on my babies faces were priceless! Jorge P was awesome and make sure the kids were entertained!
Always Good at Benihana
We go to Benihana quite a bit. We always love it. The food never leaves us dissatisfied. We really like all the chefs there, but there is one in particular that we really like. His name is Bocho. He is a wonderful cook and is social to everyone at the table. If you go there, I hope you get him!
