Benihana restaurant in London’s Piccadilly offers a truly unique dining experience. The show-stopping chefs with their dancing knives and witty banter originated in New York in the 60’s and Behihana’s culinary experience has been enjoyed by more than 100 million diners worldwide. Each of Behinana’s large shared table enjoys its own dedicated chef who prepares a light, delicious, many-coursed Japanese meal teppan-yaki style before your eyes while entertaining you with samurai knife skills and a stream of charming patter. You can choose from several kinds of steak, chicken, or seafood and let the chef take care of the rest. Meals at Benihana are terrific fun for families, groups of friends and outings for work teams as well as easy first-date venues. The décor is modern Japanese, smart and minimalist. Service is charming and, if sushi is always part of your Japanese meal, Benihana’s sushi is an excellent example of authentic Japanese cuisine.

The kids and adults both had fun because Gary our chef was incredible. Our waiter wasn’t as attentive and we had to call over a few times to order drinks. Attention to detail is lacking, didn’t feel like it pristine clean ...I guess expectations are high when you are paying £250 for two adults and 4 young children. Overall fun experience, food was good!

Worth every penny, I do not provide this recommendation lightly. The experience and the quality of the food makes it worth it. We sent £200 between three people and that was for a 7-course meal with drinks on the side. If you fail to enjoy Benihana at Piccadilly - you did something wrong!

The chef who cooked steak worked harder for performance rather than cooking foods.
Many vegetables were not cooked enough, especially bean sprouts was not cooked enough.

No, and most of alldue to the receptionist who was negative in the view, tone.
We brought one kid that needed a children chair which was not booked and thta created a huge chllenge , for her.
For an otherwise good service and friendly staff, she set the scene

It definitely wasn't as good as the last time we visited, the general service was awful (and there were a lot of waiters just standing around chatting so there was no excuse and I had to keep asking for assistance, and to get the desert menu I almost had to grab the menu from the podium myself!). My salmon was over-cooked as it was very thinly sliced and was left on the hot plate too long, however my husband really enjoyed his meal and given it was for his birthday I didn't want to cause a fuss. I do think it's very expensive for what it is but the entertainment value usually makes it worth while, however, on this occasion is sadly did not. I will not be rushing to return and walked out of there feeling quite deflated.

Food and service very good. Only let down was there being no soap in the toilets, despite me telling them, still none on my second trip to the loo.

We had a great time but it is far too expensive. How can you justify the cost for the quantity? I would easily have expected another serving at least. Far too expensive.

I love the Benihana experience and have visited their restaurants worldwide - the Piccadilly location is one of the best. Lively, fun, great staff, brilliant chefs, awesome food. Don't expect a cheap night out, but it is great value for the money.

Food generally good, however the Black cod wasn’t marinated as it should have been (for a few hours) so not as flavoursome as it should be.

Highly recommended. We booked the restaurant for my mum's birthday. She had such a great time. The staff were all super friendly and they brought her a special birthday celebration and wished her a happy birthday. John and the chef (starts with an M..can't remember his name sorry) literally made the experience perfect. We had such a laugh and felt welcomed. Will certainly come back again with the whole family

A meal that was a bit different and entertaining. The chef had a lovely dry sense of humour. The food was cooked very well but not very exciting and would have been average if it were not for the novelty of having it cooked at your table. We did have the set £25 meal as it was a quick supper before going to the theatre.

I was greeted by a hard face woman,that did not even smile,no pleasantries and was very cold, the toilets where filthy and was seated with a couple that had a very young child with no behaviour. However the chef was very nice. Our order was not fully met, I choose that restaurant for our annual siblings dinner, we left with the feeling that we will not go there ever again.

Having pre-stated with the booking that one of us has allergies to crustaceans and one other member of the party has coeliac, the restaurant were not aware of this. The service was extremely poor, the waitress couldn’t remember our order and did not even know what gluten was. We were waiting for 2 hours before food, and that was for the plates prepared in the kitchen so didn’t depend on collecting everyone’s orders for the chef to come. The waitress would also forget parts of our order and when serving some of our food asked if we wanted the rest to be cooked! Due to my allergy to crustaceans, they cooked my food in the kitchen to avoid contact on the hot plate but I still suffered an allergic reaction and had to take antihistamines. My gluten-free friend was so limited with options that the restaurant would serve her, she only ate some spinach and some mushrooms. Absolutely appalling from a restaurant which I have had a lovely experience at previously. I was embarrassed to have chosen it for my friends who were visiting from Spain.
