We have heard about this restaurant in the lower 48 but have never been to any of them. We went for their lunch special and was very happy with their deal they had and we loved our service he was so helpful with this being our first time there and made it fun for my birthday. The food was amazing... More

Visited Benihana for a late appetizer, cocktail date. Walked in the restaurant and the two employees at the hostess stand completely ignored us. We finally just awkwardly walked to the bar. We sat at a high top table and literally had to "flag" down our waitress. We ordered two longislands', two Benihana Tangy Ginger Salads and a spicy tuna roll.... More

We came here for my son's birthday. He's only 11. This was the place he requested. Mostly, because of the show and the chefs are wonderful. The food was amazing. Service amazing. Such a nice atmosphere.

I have lived in Alaska for 6 years and have driven by Benihanas hundreds of times but never went. My husband took me there on date to try something new. I don't like sushi, but my husband tried it and thought it was great. Our server, Treyvon, was excellent. I had their shrimp and fried rice, it was absolutely delicious.

We were coming back from the walking trail - Knowles, and found this Japanese place by surprise and we loved what we found. Hibachi was great - there was a bit of misunderstand on my order, but largely it was okay. Also, they made a mistake in the bill because of the misunderstanding between server and the chef on the...

I visited this place for the first time with a large group from work. First off we were told there was no sushi available as the sushi chef had not showed up for work. Not a great start. There were 12 of us and we ordered drinks and appetizers right away. Sodas and teas took over 10 minutes to arrive.... More

Quite by accident I stopped in for 4 pm bar menu snack. It was great - taste wise, price wise and service 'wise' . . Then the Real Alaskans had a lunch there the next week, and it was great again. We got the whole meal with the chop-chop show and again I was amazed and wondered why I hadn't... More

We ate here on a busy Friday evening. There were no readily available tables in the main restaurant so we ate in the lounge. Our server Lynette was fabulous. So friendly and helpful. There is not much choice though if you don't eat sushi. There's just the 5 course or the 6 course meals which are all over $30 each,... More
