In the traditional style of Benihana this restaurant serves Teppan in the traditional style. With a flourish and drama the flaming onion volcano is always a cross pleaser. Hi chef cooked everything perfectly the vegetables run Dente scallops were juicy and not tough. My steak...More

The teppanyaki is a lot of fun and the food and entertainment is excellent, but I never miss a chance to stop in the sushi side of the restaurant. Our favorite rolls are the Malibu Roll, Crunchy Roll, and the Halloween Roll.
