I love Benihana, even though it is a chain, the food is great and the cooks repeat the routine over and over again, nothing new has happened since the day they opened in SF.

I feel that it could be much cheaper!

Benihana's food is really great. I especially love their chicken fried rice. It is usually pretty pricey, but if you come here during lunch they have a great deal. For around ~$10 you can get a meat dish, fried rice, soup, and a green tea for dessert. All the deliciousness of Benihana for half the price!

Pros: Cheap, yummy lunch

Cons: Expensive for dinner

I had an awesome time at Benihana! We started out with a sushi roll which was very good and then had steak and shrimp it all tasted delicious! The fried rice was the best and the chef was very entertaining. The prices were good and the food good so I definitely recommend it for an entertaining night out!

The service was terrific, friendly fun lively chef, waitresses refilling your water every 5 minutes, it was a fun and entertaining experience, but the food was NOT worth it. The sushi was good, but you can get good sushi anywhere. The fried rice was lacking flavor, the entrees were flavorless. All they do is add butter, salt and pepper to EVERYTHING. the food was just WAY too expensive for their lack of flavor, I had to steal the chef's teriyaki sauce secretly while he wasn't looking and add it onto my beef. The chicken had no flavor also, and neither did the teriyaki.

Pros: Fun, Entertaining, Fast

Cons: Too Expensive, Food was Bad

The food here is too salty and overpriced. Only go if you want to see some guy twirl his knife. Other than that, expect bad food and bad service. You can bbq at home for a better price than ~$30/person.

The service was poor. No one ever came to check for refills on drinks. The food was very salty. The soup was very salty. The Chef on the other hand was wonderful and pleasant. Everything was extra. If you wanted fried rice it was $2.50 extra. There were no free refills on drinks. (if anyone ever comes to ask if you would like one)

The All you can Eat sushi experience is interesting. They seat you in a separate dining area from the rest of the restaraunt and give you a paper with 2 lists. You order as many you want from the first list, but you have to order at least 4 different items to order off the second list. Our waitress didn't explain this very well. She also kept disappearing when we wanted to order more, and we had to wait about 20 minutes for each serving.
FYI: Benihana will refuse to seat the people in your party together if some want to do All you can Eat sushi, and some would rather order off the menu.
Also, if you park in the Japantown center parking lot: they will not validate your parking.
Overall, you get what you pay for.

Read the other review for this place...I guess it doesn't take much to get me entertained, but I was impressed by the charming chef, his onion volcano, and beating heart made of rice! Fun and different from any other restaurant, my friends and I really enjoyed ourselves! The food was superb, I had the filet mignon...very tender! Great treat!!!
