My wife and I were staying at the Hilton Hawaiian village and the last night decided to go here so we could be close and relax. When we arrived they were packed and said we could eat if we just wanted to order from the kitchen. They put us by the front door right next to all the traffic. Within... More

This restaurant is one of my favorite hotels in Honolulu. The food is authentic and fresh. The prices are a bit pricey, but well worth it! Make sure to book before you come.

The appetizers is like a shrimp and salad with dressing. DELICIOUS. Then there was the soup as a first dish which was OK. They put mushrooms in which bare not my favourite... More

Fantastic food and fun watching your meal being prepared at your table. You share a table with 8 people so that may make some people uncomfortable- it didn't bother us. It was fun.

We had an evening of entertainment watching our chef slice and dice our meal consisting of chicken, steaks, lobsters, shrimps and scallops. Luckily our party consisted of 10 people so we filled a large tepenyaki table and all had fun together. Smaller parties have to share tables with other people. The environment is rather loud and not condusive to romantic... More

Amazing experience, we enjoyed very much. All the dishes were tasteful. We had hibachi steak and Yakiniku Steak both were exactly how we ordered them (thank... More

My experience here was just not up to par with past dining experiences at this Benihana. Service was terrible. I was finished with my meal before the cook even prepared my garlic rice. Drink refill never happened. Food was OK.Just not what I remembered from past visit to this restaurant. Hopefully it was just an off night for them. Oh,... More
