Never been to benihana's but been to places like it. IT was really hyped up but when i went there, the chef was not enthused at all. It may have been our fault considering everyone at the table was very much into their own conversations but I feel that if im going to pay $20-30 for a plate at a hibatchi grill, the chef has to really give a show.

The First and Best hibatchi style restaurant in atlanta. Its a great place, and the food is good. But with such things do not expect to see innovation as their are only so many ways to flip a shrimp into one's hat.

I have eaten at several Hibachi Steak houses and have eaten at Benihana before but I will never step foot in this place again it was the worst food that I've ever eaten on top of that I drove an hour to get there. The steak was not seasoned at all along with the shrimp (no salt or pepper or butter). Benihana you need to look around you and see the other hibachi places and see how they are cooking there food, you may learn something.

Below is my response to the Customer Relations Manager which went ignored when I was detered from finishing my meal, but forced to still pay full price: As the TLC of Customer Relations Manager I would assume your duties would be to maintain customer relations and positive relationships with/amongst those patrons who value quality dining. Mr. Takenaka, the incident will not deter me from being a patron of Benihana, however it is your poor corrective measures and your pursuit of false information that is deterring my return, and any future patrons that I can make publicly aware of the poor response received from you, on Benihana's behalf, pertaining to this situation.

How can you not love the occasional hibachi dinner? Their fried rice is addictive, and their sushi selection is surprisingly impressive. They also do call-ahead if you aren't going to be dining there.

The food is good, but what makes the experience great is the show they put on when preparing your food. The meal is well worth the price tag. You get a lot of food and it is prepared right in front of you. The staff is friendly and the sushi is great.

It's an all in one, you really don't have to do the whole diner and a movie thing if you go to Benihana you've got great food and entertainment all wrapped in one. Also, the sushi bar is ideal for lunch and not too expensive.

Believe me, avoid this place. I've been here twice and both times have been bad. The wait is forever and the food isn't that great. It's overpriced and not as good as other Hibatchi's I have been to.

My visit to Benihana was a truly unique experience. I had been to other Japanese restaurants before, and eaten "habachi" style, where the cooks make the food in front of you. Most other restaurants do the same routines, over and over again. It's amazing to see them cook in front of you, but the tricks are all the same. Not at Benihana. The tricks the chefs at Benihana performed were new, and it was very exciting. They were personal, and really interacted with the customers. Their "show" was unique, and it made my visit even better. The food was amazing, too! Overall, it was a wondnerful dining experience.
