Benihana Restaurant Review

: For many diners, the national restaurant chain of Benihana is equated with a fun night out for a birthday or special occasion that includes a show. A limited menu of accessible eats (steak, chicken and seafood, stir-fried teppanyaki-style on a steel griddle built into diners’ own tables) is cooked by knife-wielding showmen who slice ‘n’ dice, flip shrimp into their hats, and otherwise play with their food. Meals are complete; entrées include soup, salad, shrimp appetizer, hibachi vegetables and green tea. To appeal to the younger crowd, there is an à la carte sushi menu, too. But it’s the time-tested formula of teppanyaki meals, prepared with theatrics, that continues to draw diners.
