Reservation for 7, we are 6 at the door, #7 is parking vehicle and we cannot be seated until #7 shows up; as surprise we ended up being 8 due to mere coincidence, another hassle.

Me and my husband had a great experience having lunch at Benihana. Fair prices for Panama and for the type of restaurant. Good service from the hostess that greets you, to the waiter. We had a lunch boat that included one of the best salmons we've ever had. Perfectly cooked and seasoned. It also included edamame, tempura, sashimi, 4 pieces of california roll, matcha tea, and a very tasty onion soup as starter, for $14. The other sushi roll we ordered was not outstanding, but the rest was delicious, and the salmon was truly the best. The service from our waiter Ricardo was excellent. We will return as many times as we can.

This is the first time we visit the new place, because they moved from the Terrazas area. We were excited because we were going to celebrate my niece´s 7 year old birthday.
The waiter had a very low tone of voice! bad when there is noise around! we said we were allergic to some food. Anyway, the chef came with the trays and with the food we said we were allergic. No problem, new trays came in.
But this is the sad part! my niece was so excited because she could be with the chef doing the egg part (throwing them), but the chef didnt invite none of the kids. I told them that maybe this part was cancel. But when other people came in with other chefs, everybody participated with the chefs doing the egg part. But when we told the waiter he didnt know what to say. Plus never brought more water....... In summmary, we would never go to that place again. Also, the sauces they use to serve for vegetables and meat are not longer, or they didnt give us. Service is awful.

I took my grandson here for his birthday and we really enjoyed it.
The waitress was a little stressed not knowing english and trying to
communicate what we wanted.
Food was excellent. We will be back.
