THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Benihana of Tokyo Restaurant Review

: Long before this country’s Pan-Asian and Pacific-Rim culinary boom, there was Benihana, the famous chain with the knife-wielding chefs. Sit either around a communal chef station, where hibachi and teriyaki dishes are prepared before your eyes, or at a private table. Sample hibachi shrimp, scallop or calamari for starters, and try the snapper teriyaki or the Splash ’n’ Meadow (combo of shrimp and steak) entrées. Wash them down with an ice-cold Sapporo, hot saké, or an iced, sweet plum wine. Crispy, creamy, hot banana tempura with ice cream is a dessert well worth the calories. Also located at 1665 NE 79th St., Miami Beach, 305-866-2768; 8728 S. Dixie Hwy., Kendall, 305-665-0044; and 276 E. Commercial Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, 954-776-0111.
