The point of eating at this international food chain is to experience the joys of watching your food be prepared in front of you at the hibachi grill. After all, with all that knife and spatula juggling going on, you know the chefs at Benihana aren’t just there to cook for you. The waterside seating out back at Benihana is an almost romantic getaway right in the heart of Tourist Club Area’s ugly bustle, and thumbs up also for the service staff, who are polite, informed and very accommodating.

If you need a certain item on your set meal changed, they not only happily comply, they also make suggestions for alternatives. It’s a popular teppanyaki joint that doesn’t fail to serve up some decent sushi. We do think the desserts could be a little better though.

Another great night at Benihana’s. Love the teppanyaki, this is not just a meal but an experience where the chef ensures everyone leaves having had a great time.
We found the food, atmosphere, ambience and price all good. Can’t wait for our next night out here.
