Food is theatre at this Sackville Street teppanyaki restaurant - one of two Benihanas in London (there's another in Chelsea). Meals are played with and prepared on a teppan hot plate at each table, where chefs showcase knife skills, tricks and flicks as they compile a selection of pan-Asian dishes.
The menu ranges from appetisers and sushi to miso black cod, tuna grilled in teriyaki sauce, wagyu beef steak and the 'seafood palace' - a combination of lobster, black cod, salmon and scallops. Desserts include green tea ice cream, mango sorbet, ice cream tempura and cheesecake dumplings.
Keep an eye out for lunch offers, combination deals and bento boxes, too.

What an awesome dining experience! Greg was the best chef ever, serving up some fine Japanese cuisine. Even after the dinner was finished, we enjoyed a lovely conversation with the friendly Aime! He told us all about the history of Benihana and you could really feel that he loves to work there!
Worst restaurant i've ever been to in my life!! do not come here!! i came on Monday 9th may and the service was absolutely disgusting. I was told to shut up on my own birthday by the waitress. She was also very rude to my guests, we didn't even feel like eating there we just had to leave. we made a complaint to the manager and he refused to apologise to us, he even sided with the waitress. You would think customers should come first but not in this place! I would not recommend this place at all, especially if it is your birthday!! they will treat you like dirt. I will definitely put my experience in the newspaper so everyone can see what an awful place this is. Honestly this was an utter disgrace!!
Loved this place! very lively and chef throwing things to amaze us all! our chef Tom was the best of the night he kept us entertained. Next time I will go for my girl friend's birthday as it seems lots going on this place - apparently they sing Japanese song with a free cake & photo.
I adore this place. It's so different and fun. I've been a handful of times now with various people but always on the toptable deal of 6 courses for £29. Don't forget there is service charge added on top and drinks are quite pricey, so stick to soft drinks till after dinner if you don't want to visit the bank. You get a lot of food on this menu, all of which is delicious and entertaining at the same time (I doubt you can often say those two things together very often) The chefs are lovely and extremely talented, doing tricks at the table with the food and making everyone smile. You choose from a few options of fish or meats and get soup, rice, sushi etc also. They know what everyone wants as they write it down so it's all very organized. I wanted to leave a review in particular on this occasion because the last time I visited I was with my brothers girlfriend, who is wheat intolerant. I thought this may be a problem to them as they cook at a table you sit around and everyone has a bit of what the chef cooks, but no - They catered to this need beautifully and were so thoughtful with it too. Gluten free soy was used and a special batch of rice for her too - They really deserve some credit for that achievement alone and we all had a good time.... Thanks Benihana!
