Very entertaining but the restaurant layout is minimal compared to other Benihanas I've been too. Still, they have great food at great prices and it is always a fun place to go with a group of friends.

The cook for our table of 8 people was great. The food was great and he barbecued over the fire well. A definate for Anchorage.

The prices always seem high in a place such as this but you're always stuffed when you're done. Everything was cooked perfectly! The tenderloin was quite a good size and I was surprised that I got 8 scallops as well. Very tasty!

The restaurant is next to our hotel and we had a long flight so we did not want to have to go far for a dinner.
