An always popular restaurant on the style-forward Kings Road in London’s Chelsea, Benihana offers an exciting take on Japanese dining. A concept originated way back in the 1960s over in the Big Apple, Benihana brings together food and performance, pioneering ‘eatertainment’. Ideal for families, Benihana is sleek and stylish with a modern interior, but chances are you won’t be paying much attention to your surroundings – most diners are too busy being charmed by the tableside teppan-yaki cookery which sees the chefs create real drama before your very eyes. In addition to the delicious personally created dishes cooked and served at your table, Benihana also offers eat in and lunchtime take away sushi.

I love Benihana restaurants. This is my second visit to Chelsea but I have been to Sackville Street on many occasions. Always entertaining and the food is perfect. I am Coeliac but this is never too much trouble and the chef's are very careful and consider my needs.

The food was all served too quickly. It would be nice to have a short break before the main course is served. Wines are very overpriced.

Poor manager (Cesar). Voucher rip-off. Very poor customer service. He basically didn't care what we were saying. He did not try to solve the problem. When told unless a solution is reached, we will not ever come back to this location, he shrugged his shoulders. He was arrogant and rolled his eyes at our comments. Did not solve the problem and didn't care.

Excellent meal and entertainment.....the table was a little sticky and the furniture could use a bit of updating. Other than that - I would recommend the place.

We had a wonderful evening for my son's birthday and loved the name on the sign and the birthday singing and the cake but best of all was our chef Ben who cooked for us and made it such fun with juggling knives, interacting with the guests, and more! he was exceptional and please pass that on! Steve at the bar was also super, and everyone was warm, friendly and helped to make it a very special night to remember. We shall see you again soon!

We had an amazing time at Benihana with our server Tamara who went above and beyond to make sure my 30th birthday was very memorable. She was very helpful, polite and ensured all of our food was prepared correctly and our experience was unmatched. Authur was our cook who did an outstanding job keeping us entertained as well as very satisfied with our meals.

We would highly recommend Benihana Chelsea for all any special occasion.

Was a lovely night for my birthday ! The chef was so funny and made it very enjoyable ! The only thing I would say is I was a bit sad my name wasn't on the birthday board as I did say when I booked it was my birthday and a woman infront of us was celebrating her birthday and they sung happy birthday to her so that would have made my birthday even more amazing but it was so lovely thank you for a lovely evening!

Anniversary dinner, they put a banner up on a tv screen wishing happy anniversary. They also came at the end of dinner with complimentary ice cream and sung a happy anniversary song. Really great !

The restaurant is excellent. The cook prepares the meal in our table. He is a show man. The only drawback is the price but if you can afford it it is worth every penny

it is our regular place for "celebratory dinners" and last time (a month ago) I gave Benihana 5 stars but this time it seems like the meat portions were much smaller so questionable value. Also our cook was rushed as he needed to go to another table. It was hopefully just one time bad luck and things will back to better.

It was a great experience. Went at lunch time so was a bit quiet. I think evenings would be better. Great service and food though and fab entertainment. Would definitely go back.

- quality and presentation deteriorated in the last six months
- lack of staff, having to go look for staff
- the person who cooked looked exhausted
- as a family we have come for many years. Having noticed the difference I spoke to a staff who said the management had changed and they were trying to save money. Such a pity as I wouldn’t bring my family back nor would I recommend it to anyone

The restaurant is a fun place -BUT there are a lot of downsides. The chef we had wasn't very engaging, the food is good but overpriced and it took forever getting drinks. And the toilets are disgusting - even my children thought they were awful. We paid £300 for 5 adults and 3 children.

It is exactly what it says it is, however you will have to sit with other people so if you want something intimate you may have to arrange that ahead, it’s good for groups and birthdays etc
