Knife-wielding chefs put on a show at this communal Japanese grill.. In Short Benihana started out as a tiny four-table restaurant in New York City's theater district before becoming an international chain. Diners sit around large tables where chefs ostentatiously chop, slice, stir-fry and grill. Entree options are simple--shrimp, chicken, steak and scallops--and preparation is uniform. Every entree comes with a similar stock of sides: rice, onion soup, shrimp appetizer, iceberg lettuce drizzled with dressing, sauteed vegetables and green tea.
Service with a smile!.
My husband and I held our small wedding dinner here not long ago and the staff and food were amazing. The manager arranged a wedding cake for us and the staff was so efficient and kind. I just adore the food and ambience at Benihana!
