Japanese
An always popular restaurant on the style-forward Kings Road in London’s Chelsea, Benihana offers an exciting take on Japanese dining. A concept originated way back in the 1960s over in the Big Apple, Benihana brings together food and performance, pioneering ‘eatertainment’. Ideal for families, Benihana is sleek and stylish with a modern interior, but chances are you won’t be paying much attention to your surroundings – most diners are too busy being charmed by the tableside teppan-yaki cookery which sees the chefs create real drama before your very eyes. In addition to the delicious personally created dishes cooked and served at your table, Benihana also offers eat in and lunchtime take away sushi.

The service was very poor, the starters arrived after the chef had started cooking the mains, so it was all rushed. We had to wait for 39 minutes for a drink

Food at Benihana is fantastic but some nights are family nights for children's birthdays so you never know what kind of ambiance or noise level you may get.
Service was unbelievable and our server Steve as well as our CHEF John allowed us to enjoy the full Japanese experience. Here is to excellent food and incredible entertainment.

We came to celebrate a couple of birthdays , the service was very good, we were given complimentary ice cream for our birthdays and the staff sang happy birthday. The chef was fantastic, very charismatic and full of tricks and jokes! Thoroughly enjoyed !

The black cod was very disappointing and wasn’t worth £10 let alone £43.

My girlfriend said she didn’t eat meat and we were given onion soup cooked in beef stock

I would have to say I was fairly disappointed with the quality of the food considering the price we paid. Service was average and I would not recommend to anyone unfortunately.

Good option for a different night out, nice seeing the chef preparing your food in front of you, though their jokes are a bit lame sometimes. Most of the food was nice, though our rare and medium rare stakes were seriously overcooked

I would most certainly recommend to a friend and will be returning there shortly with some of the grandchildren for a birthday celebration. I marked the ambiance slightly lower than i would normally as it was very quiet when we were there on Sunday (25th Aug). The food and service were however up to the usual high standard.

An excellent place for a special occasion dinner with food that is simple but delicious. The price is higher than our last visit a couple of years ago and would make us think twice now which is a shame.

I love Benihana restaurants. This is my second visit to Chelsea but I have been to Sackville Street on many occasions. Always entertaining and the food is perfect. I am Coeliac but this is never too much trouble and the chef's are very careful and consider my needs.

The food was all served too quickly. It would be nice to have a short break before the main course is served. Wines are very overpriced.

Poor manager (Cesar). Voucher rip-off. Very poor customer service. He basically didn't care what we were saying. He did not try to solve the problem. When told unless a solution is reached, we will not ever come back to this location, he shrugged his shoulders. He was arrogant and rolled his eyes at our comments. Did not solve the problem and didn't care.

Excellent meal and entertainment.....the table was a little sticky and the furniture could use a bit of updating. Other than that - I would recommend the place.
