Benihana - Plymouth Meeting Ratings and Reviews
Benihana is always one of our favorite places to eat even though it is about 45 minutes away from home. The food and service during this trip was probably the best we've had and it was the first time we had a table to ourselves. The food was, as always, fantastic.
The worst experience ever at Benihana.
Food was good , wait was horrible. Beer glasses were dirty waitress did not speak loud enough, and ended up yelling. We were given a free hourdourv and it was cold. I'm sorry but I will not recommend your place ever...
And to let you know , we love Benihanas ...
I guess I will continue to visit Benihana in Orange county .
I would have given this 5 stars but we were celebrating my daughter's birthday and although they did come out and sing, they brought her a small bowl of WHIP CREAM! This was not an inexpensive meal and for them not to give her a scoop of ice cream or piece of cake, I was disappointed as was she. : (
The best part about Benihana is the food! It is delicious. It's always fun to have it cooked in front of you, but the taste is amazing. Never disappoints! Appetizers and Sushi are wonderful, too. I would like the service and seating to be quicker, but it's still acceptable. I always enjoy eating at Benihana!
Little over cooked than ordered, on my steak and my son's steak( med. rare), no scallops the night we went, the restaurant walls and rugs needs to be cleaned due to the cooking at the tables, you feel the grease on the surfaces. Staff friendly, foods was good my family enjoy ourselves. Chef and server were funny..
I made reservations for 5 people on my Boyfriends 21st Birthday. When we first arrived the host was not very welcoming and we were told that we could sit wherever we wanted. The table we sat at was a teppanyaki table , one of the servers yelled at us and said "hey it's not self seating don't sit there!". I told him I was told to sit anywhere in the restaurant, and he replied in a nasty way "you can't sit there, you can go to the lounge but not there". Moving right along, the same guy who was rude became my server for the whole evening. I was very uncomfortable with his service and my family members also felt the same way. When were getting our drinks at our dinner table, they brought over a family of three people that we did not even know. My boyfriend and his family found it very rude that they put random people at our dinner table,especially since I've put in a reservations a month in advance. Overall the food and experience was good, I liked being able to have my food cooked in front of me but my server just rubbed me the wrong way. I definitely plan on going to Benihana again, maybe another location or I'll just make sure that I don't get the same guy as my server.
We went to Benihana's for my daughter's 16th birthday (a total of 8 people) and were seated right away. While the waitress was friendly she was not very knowledgeable about the menu as we had someone in our party who has a gluten allergy and needed to know if the noodles that came with the salmon were rice or wheat based. It took more than 10 minutes for her to come back and let us know that they were wheat based. In addition, I had ordered a beer and she had served everyone else's drinks but forgot my beer and started to take our dinner order (I had to remind her about my beer). We felt that the service was rushed as we had not even finished our soups when the salads came and we had barely touched our salads when the table chef came out and started the show. We were disappointed in the table chef as it appeared his skills were still being perfected (the flaming onion / onion train fell apart as he was moving it across the grill and we noticed it happened to him at another table after ours). Overall we felt rushed on a Wednesday evening and would have expected better service for the price paid.
Initially the greeting/host/hostess was not warm and encouraging but after being seated they warmed up. We liked the food although there were too many onions in our dishes. This is the 2nd time I got sick after lunch at Benihana. I won't go back but my family would return.
We went for our 10-year-old's birthday. Are we trust was Simone and was very friendly and patient with us. We were there on a Sunday at 7 PM and it was really busy. It took a little while to get drinks but she came back to tell us that she was still waiting for them to be served at the bar. I appreciated that we didn't have to find her and ask her what was going on.
Our chef was Chef Yasso(?). He was very competent and friendly. He cooked my steak to the exact temperature that I asked for. All three of my kids were delighted with their meals, as was my husband. I didn't realize that they had changed their policy so you only get chicken fried rice (for an additional charge) or white rice. We asked for white rice thinking it would be just plain fried rice with no chicken. It was a bowl of white rice on the side which was fine. Simone made sure that they served the cake that we brought and my daughter enjoyed having happy birthday sung to her in English and Japanese.
All in all a very enjoyable evening.
I was surprised to see that there are smaller chained hibachi restaurants that provide more food than Benihana at a lower price. At other restaurants I have received noodles along with rice and greater amount of vegetables. Although the restaurant was big, it felt cramped in the seating with leather benches. The food tasted good and the service was excellent but I expected more from Benihana.
It was horrible. I could've bought all my food and cooked it myself for everyone with the time we waited. Reservations were at 8PM. We didn't get to place our drink orders for another half hour. Food didn't start cooking until 9:30! Waited a long time for the simplest things to come out. We had so many more plans for after dinner. But had to cancel due to the time it took for food to come out
