Benihana - Cupertino
Prepare for a dining experience unlike any other. Watch as your personal chef performs the ancient art of Teppanyaki. Listen as razor-sharp blades slice through tender steak and juicy chicken. Take in the aroma of sizzling shrimp, lobster and savory vegetables. Or visit our sushi bar, where your sushi chef will prepare fresh nigiri, sashimi and specialty rolls, all with the same flair that made Benihana a legend in Japanese cuisine.
This place is great! They have recently gone through a renovation (face lift) in the dinning room and a new lounge with a sushi bar. Value is not why you go to Benihana. You go for a fun show and good dinner. Proper etiquette does not state that you must wait for the chef to be done cooking before you start. That is why everything is in pieces so you just pluck and enjoy, (also because no knives at the table). Miso soup is great, but they changed their famous salad dressing. I like the old one better, slightly thicker in texture and bolder in taste. Overall a great place to go for celebrations not an every day, unless you have disposable income.
Service is very friendly. Food is great. Prices are a tad high, but I thought it was worth it. Food comes quickly and hot there, too. A great place for special occasions. Kind of like Kyoto Palace, but I liked the service here a little better. Couldn't recommend better Asian Food.
Since my first visit nearly a decade ago, to last night, Benihana is still one of the best places to take your wife, girlfriend, or a party of nine to sit back and enjoy a great show by some incredibly skilled chefs at the grill. Not to mention that every single one of them really gets the crowd going with their little tricks and the tossing of food into people's mouths.
Best Dish(es): Rocky's Choice (Beef and Chicken) and Splash & Meadow (Beef and Seafood).
Always opt for the fried rice; you will not be disappointed and it's worth the added expense. Also, if you're up for dessert, you cannot go wrong with the Banana Tempura!
My kids love this place, because of the show that comes with dinner. I’m not a big fan of Teppan style dining, primarily because half your food ends up cold while you’re waiting for everyone else’s to cook. This place just supports my displeasure for the whole style of cooking. The prices certainly don’t make the whole experience a value. The Cupertino Benihana’s is old and in dire need of a face lift in the main dining area. It feels as if the wallpaper is peeling off the walls right behind you. The carpet is worn and often stained.
I went to Benihana a few months ago and the food was over expensive. One chicken dish had a base price of a whopping $16! Notice how I wrote BASE price. That only includes the chicken itself. Yet some dish of rice is required if you want to eat in the show table. So even if you are not that hungry, you'll still end up paying a ton of money for things you would never want to eat. Sure, the chefs do some really awesome tricks, but that only makes you expect the food to be that much better. Benihana tries to make an illusion that their food is actually worth the price. But how can you really tell whether the price is worth it? Picture it this way: Benihana's food COSTS about two to three times more than your average restaurant.Think about whether Benihana's food is two to three times better TASTING than that of a normal restaurant.
Still, I have to complement the skills of the chefs. They do these amazing tricks based on the food you ordered, like an onion volcanoe, spectacular stir fry, and awesome flips with the rice and utensils. It's great watching them cook, but if you're hungry, all you really think about is the taste of the food, whcih later disappoints you. But if you are looking for entertainment,COME TO BENIHANA!
I like Benihana for its consistency and good food. I haven't visited this location for at least 10-15 years, but the service, food quality, and teppan cooking show at the table was exactly the same as I remember it. Portion sizes are perfect and the food quality is excellent. It's a good value too. At first glance it appears to be a wee bit pricey, but you get a lot for the money incl. soup, salad, rice, appetizer, vegetables, main course and dessert. Oh, it's also a good family place for kids over 5yo.
