Dishes and menu are not that great. Staff is rude, not accommodating and dismissive. Dirty dishes are kept near tables - super unsightly. We were shocked at how bad our experience was at this restaurant. Would not recommend it. An embarrassment to Northport Village, which has so many great restaurants.

Visiting some family in Northport on a Saturday evening, we decided to have dinner in town. Unfortunately their first three choices for a “nice place” in town to have dinner were “reservation only” and booked solid - but we were able to get a table at Benkei Japanese restaurant. We were seated at a table right next to the rest... More

The service here is very slow. However it is good Japanese food. Their nigiri tofu and sautéed vegetables were excellent and the sushi and sashimi were fresh and tasty.

This little restaurant around the corner off Main St is a find. There are so many sushi places around these days. Many are overpriced and you certainly encounter all grades of sushi. My family and I are big fans and the kids have been eating it since they were 2 years old. Even they can tell quality now. Benkei is... More

If you're in the mood for Sushi & in town, then stop on in. they never updated this place from when it was the Sea Shanty, so it still has the old wood & sea feel. Not really a Japanese feel. So, it's not about the abiance. However, they make nice Sushi.

Not that there's a lot of competition, but this is the best sushi in the area by far. Service is good and prompt. The atmosphere is very nice and the price is good. If you get the boat for 2, make sure you have 4 people because it is a LOT of food

We love this little place for date night, awesome wine, too. Food is fresh and they cater to gluten-free. Good service. Cozy and friendly. Easy parking across the street, and can walk the park after dinner. So pretty there with the water view right across the street.

This is a neighborhood sushi / Japanese place -- the lunch menus are good and reasonably priced. Not many people for lunch

Really cold service, unfriendly waitress, sushi bar is not flexible at all (will not make whatever sushi you want despite having all ingredients available - at least according to the nasty waitress), huff and puff at you if you are taking too long to order (rush you out), is over-crowded in a tiny space, leave dirty dishes out in the...
