It was ok. I bought the Groupon for two and we had a beverage each. We added one lobster tail to the meal to share as well which was an extra $20. Together with Groupon, the grand total came to $185 tip included. Not sure I would’ve gone there had I known that. Really pricey even with the Groupon and I wasn’t really blown away by the food.

Love it here...we have been going for over 20 years, the staff treat us like family. Just an amazing group of people with awesome food, we pretty much go for every family celebration!

Food and experience was great! Until two different cockroaches were spotted in our room. One crawled onto the table from under the table in front of me. Really spoiled the otherwise lovely evening

Pros : Quality of food was good. Not fabulous but good. Chef cooking at our table was very skilled and entertaining. Cons: Disliked being presented with the ‘Groupon’ menu . GROUPON printed in bold, large font at the top. We felt cheap. We were sat at one of the cooking tables with a party of ladies celebrating a big birthday. No privacy for them or us. Ambiance: there was none. Very uninspiring decor, I’ve been in more atmospheric Starbucks . Service: Friendly wait staff but we felt rushed through the courses. Would we go again ? No. We have previously visited Teppanyaki style restaurants and experienced none of the cons above.

We enjoyed the food but it was kind of expensive if you order some extras. In fact you are paying for the chef show. May be will go again to celebrate something ,for more people the Groupon price works better.

Service is good, but the food is quite average for a restaurant in downtown area. Also don’t let the photo in the Groupon ad to fool you as the lobster option is not as appealing as shown.

Food was good but my friend saw a cockroach on the table beside us. When we informed the staff, she came over with a napkin and killed the cockroach right there while we were eating. It's quite nasty.

From Our Editors

Located inside the near century-old Fairmont Royal York hotel, the lines separating dinner and theatre are blurred at Benihana Japanese Steakhouse. Or rather, they're chopped, sliced, and diced into a million pieces. This meld comes courtesy of the restaurant's teppanyaki chefs, who twirl their knives through the air amid a whirlwind of sizzling steak pieces, scallops, and diced vegetables cooked to order on tabletop grills. Up to seven guests sit around the grill to watch as their meal is prepared by the showboating chef, who turns cooking into performance art and mouthwatering food into spectacle. Since 1964, this show has spawned Benihana restaurants in nearly every corner of the globe, and though it's the juggling that draws diners to the tables, it's the end product—the food—that keeps them coming back.

Benihana's teppanyaki menu features filet mignon, lobster, scallops with shrimp, and ahi tuna, all of which are cooked hibachi-style and served with veggies, salad, soup, and the chef's headshot and Broadway résumé. Although the fresh sushi isn't prepared alongside a flaming onion volcano, its appearance is just as tantalizing. Also, exclusive to this Toronto location is the Izumi sake. Brewed from fresh Ontario spring water and prepared in accordance with traditional Junmai (pure rice) methods, this high-end sake bears a distinct fruity flavor and makes a perfect beverage to raise in reverence to your chef.
