Foursquare Tips

  • Make sure you bring a friend. They only sell the blue ocean punch bowl to parties of two or more.
  • Upgrade to the fried rice. It is definitely worth it
  • A really bad experience, the food never came, the service sucked, no one would help us after sitting for 45 minutes.
  • Try the sushi buffet lunch!
  • From monday to thursday you must go for the endless sushi. Amazing!!! Btw, ask for the Sumo Roll
  • Fun fact: 75% of chefs from Benihana nationwide speak Spanish
  • Request Jason to be your chef.
  • Have your birthday here.
  • Talk clearly or they will mess up your order & your tab. Charged me for 2 things I never ordered & didnt bring out a dish we ordered but still charged us anyway. Complained & the lady Gennie was rude.
  • Wow. Manager is really bad........... Yummy though ;) #free
  • Get a reservation or you may be waiting for a while...
  • If you are allergic to fish, don't come or ruin it for the rest of us!
  • It was fantastic experience.. Good hospitality!!
  • Worst service ever. Customer service spoke no English. Overpriced and run down. Cannot recommend to ANY HUMAN. Poor quality, worth about 1/4 of price. Go check out Makado for good teppanyaki.
  • My second visit in the last few months and both times have sucked due to sloe and bad service and very poor customer care from the manager who doesn't speak our language and doesnt reason with people
  • Don't go to the lunch sushi buffet unless you like giant cold dense pieces of rice with a bit of sushi drizzled on top.
  • the lunch buffet area is close to the bathroom, so stuff all your rice in your napkins and toss it there!
  • All you can eat sushi in the bar for 30 a person order heavily it takes a few minutes in between otherwise
  • Jason is definitely the most talented chef here. 18 yrs of experience and still loves what he does.
  • Filet Mignon melts in your mouth. Dip it in the Ginger sauce. Make it happen!
