I went to this location yesterday at 6 pm. The service was ok, and the chef while cooked good food did very little tricks and was very quiet. However the problem came at the end. Me and my wife had both finished are meals before the chef

We stopped at this place while on my way to my GED class reunion. First of all, what's with sitting next to a bunch of strangers? The fat, bloated jew woman I sat next to smelled like an abandoned shrimp boat adrift in the sun for a year.

Now a few years ago this location burned down and I was devastated, and the word was that they weren't going to rebuild it. But it did finally re-open and I was so excited! The atmophere is alot nicer, the setup and decorations are a giant

My family and I have been eating at Benihana's ever since I can remember. I have been every year on my birthday and special occasions. The prices are a little high to be able to afford to dine at Benihana as much as I would like to. I have always enjoyed eating there, and introducing the place to people who haven't been there before. Now a few years ago this location burned down and I was devastated, and the word was that they weren't going to rebuild it. But it did finally re-open and I was so excited! The atmophere is alot nicer, the setup and decorations are a giant step up from what they were. But they seem to now be lacking in their culinary skills. The chefs are not all of asian decent anymore, which takes away from experience. Eight out of ten of the chefs appear to be Mexican immigrants, and carry on their conversations with other employees in Spanish. They put no effort into their "world-famous" cooking and tricks that makes Benihana what it is. They aren't as friendly, and don't really carry much conversation with the diners like they used to (perhaps due to their ability to not speak English, only Spanish) They seem to just focus on getting the food coooked and get you out as fast as possible, so that they can collect their tips and rush the next diners meal. Aside from this, the food is STILL wonderful and I would recommend anyone who hasn't dined here before to do so. It is an experience, and taste, that you will never forget. I love Benihana. (I recommend the teriyaki chicken and steak! They also have the best ginger sauce and dressing I've ever had!)

Pros: The best Japanese food this side of the world

Cons: chefs seems to do less, and are not as friendly anymore

The Memphis Benihana was a huge disappointment. Our chef didn't do any of the knife-juggling, fire-burning tricks that you typically see in Japanese teppanyaki restaurants. The food was ok, but not great, especially considering the price. The drinks were good. It was extremely crowded b/c they were overbooked. We waited for a half-hour despite having reservations. The Benihana is Chicago is 10 times better. I would recommend Shogun if you are looking for a good Japanese restaurant in Memphis.

Pros: Good drinks

Cons: Chefs don't do many tricks. Food only average.

I sat atop the ruins and drank champagne. Not the best place for good eats and good company, though...as it's no more than a pile of wreckage right now.

I called Benihana to make a reservation. We (Party of 12) were so looking forward to eating there. We haven't been since they remodeled. After I made the reservation, I was told if anyone was late they would start without us and then we could only do 4 separate checks. Since we would have 2 tables and 6 couples I couldn't believe they way I was being treated. I told him we could eat somewhere else, we didn' t want to cause them to much trouble. He said "OK". Obviously they have forgotten the golden rule of "The customer comes firstf" and they have way to much business! I would recommend KYOTO in Olive Branch, MS. The attitude of the staff is A1 and the food is just as good, if not better!

Benihana's is the best nonBBQ place to eat in Memphis. It combines atmosphere and great food along with a karoki bar.
