For a fun birthday treat, sign up for the chef's table. It is such a great deal. Buy one teppan entree and get $30 off your extras. Hibachi salmon with avocado tarter sauce, udon noodles, shiitake mushrooms and asparagus is yummy. The chicken fried rice...More

Very disappointed in lack of charm/atmosphere. Very crowded and noisy, with grills lined up close together. Presentation was okay, but not great. Food average, not up to expectations from other similar type restaurants. Not worth the munny!

My kids are very picky eaters and because the chef made cooking fun, they were interested in trying shrimp for the first time. The chefs are very entertaining and the food is tasty.

I eat here about once or twice a year (a little too pricey for me to be a regular here). Every time I've gone, the group I was with was entertained by the cook, and the food was very good. If you are going there...More

Nice place for an entertaining group experience, not so much on a solo. The food was good, although I clearly got one of the less experienced chefs. But, hey, they need to practice too, so I did not mind.

The food is always yumville here but sometimes you have to wait a tiny bit too long before the cooking begins so might be best to sit on the other side of the place that doesn't cook at your table if your on "the clock...More

I was in Houston for work and went out for dinner with about 9 colleagues. While waiting for everyone to arrive, the bar had a good selection of drinks including cocktails. Note you cannot carry the tab over to dinner area and have to settle...More

Prepare for a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Listen as razor-sharp blades slice through tender steak and juicy chicken. Take in the aroma of sizzling shrimp, lobster and savory vegetables. Or visit our sushi bar, where your sushi chef will prepare fresh nigiri, sashimi and specialty rolls, all with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine. .
