Benihana Restaurant Review

: The culinary landscape has evolved greatly since this restaurant made its debut in Seattle some 30 years ago. Back then, the cooking style featured here was considered exotic. While diners are much savvier these days, there's still something appealing about having your meal prepared by skilled chefs standing just inches from your plate. What's also not widely known, this is one of the best bars in the city to explore a vast selection of premium saké. While the sizzling stir-fry is one of the stars at Benihana, the sushi choices are a welcome surprise. The freshness and variety of the featured fish speaks volumes about this corporate chain's commitment to quality. When it comes to ordering an entrée, it's hard to go wrong with Rocky's Choice, a combination of steak and chicken, served with soup or salad and sides, as well as a scoop of ice cream or sorbet. This creation is a tribute to Benihana's founder, who launched the successful restaurant chain in New York City in 1964.
