We flew to Manhattan and had to return to the most entertaining restuarant where we had eaten 1 year before. The food is ordered and cook in front of you by your assigned chef. Lots of fun watching and delicious food! Love Benihanas and Manhattan❤.

My boyfriend fancied Teppanyaki and so after a trip advisor search we booked a table on Open Table and visited Benihana. We arrived early, but were swiftly shown to our table - sharing the grill with 3 other dining couples. We went for the steak...More

Even though we'd made a reservation, we had to wait for 45 minutes for our table. However the wait paid off due the fact the service and food were excellent and we could celebrate our friend's birthday just the way we'd planned.
