Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The food was good with decent sushi quality. However, I felt pretty pushed by the staff when I requested to sit at an à la carte table instead of experiencing the teppanyaki.

I really enjoyed with food and service at the benihana restaurant. It was great dinner for my family. the most important thing was the amazing service and kindness of the professional staff Khun Porn, Chef Prem, Mali, Yin and all staff there. Especially Khun Toy...was communicated with her team to book the nice table for me. The quality of food is the best in Phuket!!!!!. So highly recommend this restaurant. I will definitely dinner here again.More

Ben is very entertainer and good performance for us. It is good memory for phuket travel. Also, the taste of beef is nice. We'd like to visit when we come back to phuket.
