  • this is one of the reason why i cannot stand ANY restaurant reviews from MPLS - just like how people always say the best Chinese is Lianne Chins (or however it's spelled). really??? benihana's is the best for Japanese in the twin cities?? why am i beyond flabbergasted at this? well lets see:

    1. NOT Japanese food - you are paying for teriyaki sauce and a knife show.

    2. for what you get, RIDICULOUSLY overpriced. the meat is not good quality, the sauces are one-dimensional...cmon!

    3. it's a national chain! there are tons of adequate LOCAL Japanese restaurants that are 100000 times better than this McDonalds of Japanese. go out and explore!

  • Order: chicken teriyaki with a side of lame.

  • we made reservations for 7pm and still had to wait 10-15 minutes to be seated. after being seated the server took our food and drink orders. i asked for shrimp sauce on my salad instead of ginger but the still brought me ginger. i informer the server and it took about 10 minutes for her to get me my salad. the cook came and he did a great job, and put on a great show. my food was cooked to perfection. i believe his name was kenny.

  • Order: 2 rocky's choice meals

  • We sat at the sushi bar, as apparently you need reservations pretty far in advance for the rest of the restaurant. Food was very good, especially the Alaskan Salmon rolls, which are now some of my all time favorites. The rolls were also a little more reasonable on price then the rest of the menu. The server was attentive, but not too much so, and the atmosphere was fun. Would definitly recommend.

  • Order: sushi rolls, tempura, and saki

  • This is our absolute favorite restaurant! We split 2 meals between the 4 of us and it's absolutely the right amount of food. The atmosphere is fun, the food is amazing and it's a fun night. The price is high but the value is good.
    The only negative is that there is usually a long wait to get into the restaurant and reservations are booked out pretty far. I can't wait to go again!

  • Order: 2 Dinners, 2 Benihana triples, split between 2 adults 2 kids

  • This place is terrific. My husband and I have been eating here since we first started dating when we were 16 and 17. Now 4 children later it's STILL our very favorite place to eat. The food is excellent beyond words, and if I was a millionaire with the metabolism of a 3 year old I would eat there for every meal. PLEASE try this place it's amazing!

  • Order: Benihana triple, fried rice, shrimp appetizer

  • Delicious meal, and lots of fun. It's great for large groups or just a quiet meal out. The only drawback for us is the price. But once in a while it's definately worth it!

  • Order: shrimp with fried rice

  • We love this resturant, we have gone for years. It has changed names over the years and the prices have gone up. It is very expensive for us to go. That is the only negative thing about this place

  • Order: steak and chicken combo with fried rice

  • We have taken our family here for many, many years to celebrate every major occasion! They have never failed to live up to our expectation. The cook always puts on a spectacular show, the food is amazing; and we can't wait until the next birthday, graduation, or what have you!
    I can't recommend this establishment enough! Take the family and start your own tradition!

  • Order: Benihana Chicken
