Benihana will have the special place in our heart as we were there for our very first date. Went back last week and enjoyed it very much, as usual. Always great attentive service, amazing food. It was great experience for us to relive the memory of sweet first date. Thank you Benihana, I hope, we will visit again very soon.... More

Love this place so much. Food is fantastic and the entertainment from the chef's is second to none. Only let down was that the waitress service was slow and our Rice was forgotten until we reminded them. I hope this was a one off as I would hate to stop coming to this fabulous restaurant..

Went on a Monday night as it was 1/2 price food was nice but lacked the atmosphere of other Benihana. If I had gone on an other day I would have found the price too much for what we had. Down side service was calculated on the full price not the actual price and 1/2 price is October only

Enjoyed a great family meal and great value evening on a Monday night in Abu Dhabi with the 50% Off deal. Children loved it and great entertainment at the tepanyaki table as well as good food. Well worth trying and good savings.

The BENIHANA if conveniently located centrally in Abu Dhabi at the Rotana Beach. They serve a good variety of food, nicely prepared by the chefs with some humor. After dinner you will find some good places for a drink at the Rotana.

To be honest, I'm not a big fan of Japanese food. Sushi is about as appealing to me as spending 5 minutes in a lift with Donald Trump. But this place is more than Japanese food and yes it is pricey but the chefs are magicians, clowns and artists in one. My kids loved it and the filet steak and... More

Nice experience, but I don't understand why they bring the rice out before all the other food is cooked because it just goes cold and clumpy....something worth changing I feel.

I literally feel home the way I am welcomed, place my order and served my food. Will remain my favourite Sushi restaurant all over UAE despite of I live in Dubai. Freshness and assortment of indeed contemporary sushi. Jean, the restaurant manager knows very well how to pamper her frequent guests just flawless. Hats on guys and keep it up
