Great food at great prices. We had a great dinner there, just behind the resort, a quick walk away! THe hibachi chef was very entertaining. Everything tasted fresh and just a great atmosphere.

These places are always fun. The food is pretty good. The soup and salad not the best, but the main courses are pretty good. Nice staff and service was good.

The food was good, in particular the seafood, and the whole setup very well organised, and the cooks at the tables were entertaining.

This is not my first Benihana's,so I was use to the chef and the knives. The food was good and we meet a new friend.

If you've been to a Benihana's anywhere else in the world, nothing would surprise you here. I would suggest a reservation because we had to wait an hour for a party of two. Food was fine and the chefs as well.

Benihana's has a reputation for good food and family fun. This location doesn't disappoint. Nothing unique or exceptional. Don't get me wrong... it was good. But I don't want to pay this kind of money for "good," especially when I can get the same thing at Benihana's at home. It's a good option if you want a solid. Predictable meal.... More

The food was super salty so don't eat here if you are on a low sodium diet. I was drinking water all night. The food was decent but very pricy. I still am not a fan of... More

Our family of 14 came for dinner on our last night in Honolulu. What an experience!! Everyone loved it, down to the 1 year old. Stan was so entertaining and the food was delicious. Glad we could buy a professional photo to remember the night. Reservations were accepted - I would recommend making one, as the line outside the restaurant... More
