We've eaten hibachi style in many places and this is some of the best ever. Everyone in our group loved their food.

We had a reservation for 6 and wasn’t seated until 6:30. They are clearly understaffed and don’t care about their customers. Their tables sit 10 uncomfortably. We were a party of 7 and they sat us with a family of 3. Because we were so...More

Decided to go take my 12 yr old daughter here for dinner. Made reservations for 8:15pm but was not seated until 8:45pm. It was crowded. Apparently it's very typical of this particular location (other guests were saying). Once seated, we had hibachi. The food was...More

Our chef had his underwear hanging out the back. It was a ghetto chef with no personality, just going through the motions, and the worst Benihana experience to date. Very few Asian people working there and the wait was long. Crowded, disappointed.More

I usually love the Short Hills Benihana, but I was very disappointed this time around; based on my experience and that of other reviewers, their service is falling apart. The waiting area was chaos and every party with a reservation, including ours, was seated 20...More

This Benihana location continues to go downhill. We used to look forward to a trip to Benihanas, but now, each yearly visit reminds us why we don't go there much anymore. If I do go, I will no longer order scallops or lobster as you...More
