Always a fun place to go. Having a cook prepare in front of you. The soup and salad are good too. Sign up for your birthday certificate beforehand online to get an almost free meal.

Thank goodness for our chef because the waiter was ridiculous! He wasn't rude, just not good and smelled like weed, so enough about him! The table my friend and I were seated to had 4 sets of birthday celebrations including me so we were all getting along well and laughing. Everyone enjoyed their food and I noticed the chef was...

Took my girlfriend and some fam to Benihana for a surprise birthday dinner. I haven't been to a true Benihana for a good 15 years or so and the quality and flavor of the food was as good as I had remembered. Plus the entertainment factor is always a plus! You get miso soup and salad for starters and then... More

Food is good, prices are a little on the high side but you are paying for dinner and a show, not good if you want an intimate dinner for 2 as you share your table with strangers which can be fun. Better than some of the other restaurants in the area. Reservations are highly recommended, Join their club to get... More

I was in Los Angeles on vacation and wanted to go to Benihana's. There are 3 or 4 in the surrounding area, but the Torrence City Benihana's had high ratings so we chose that one. In one week, we went 3 times. On Christmas Eve we called from the car for reservations and they were full and were not taking... More

A fun place to share a meal. The service was really good, and of course the dinner "show" is always enjoyable. The food is high quality and fresh, but it's a bit expensive.

I have been coming to this Benihana for about 2 decades now. The service has always been exceptional. Two employees that are particularly phenomenal are Sandy and Poncho. Everytime I go I request Sandy as a waitress. I have been to Benihana in Oahu, Downey, Anaheim, San Diego, Concord, Beverly Hills, Newport Beach, City of Industry and others yet none... More

We've been eating here since 2013, normally as part of each of our birthday celebrations. It started because of the birthday specials, but it really has become more of a tradition because of the fun and entertaining experience. I normally do our reservations via the yelp/open table sites. Super convenient. Each time we go, there's a significant amount of people... More

I'm not a big fan of corporate restaurants. We came here to celebrate a 40th birthday and there was 11 of us in our party. It's entertaining to see the chef cook in front of us but that's where the stars begin to fall. We all ordered something different, my choice was the Chicken Teriyaki which was disappointing to say... More
