Located on the Las Vegas strip at the premier Fashion Show Mall, we feature a sushi bar, cocktail lounge and bar, outdoor patio and indoor dining area. Guests looking for the Benihana experience can dine at one of 18 teppanyaki tables. Benihana Las Vegas Strip’s sushi bar offers a more casual atmosphere where guests can watch master sushi chefs at one of four sushi bar tables. Those who want to keep an eye on the bustling Las Vegas Strip can enjoy fresh sushi and sashimi options or a colorful cocktail on the patio, which includes 12 tables, or at the bar, which is open to the Strip.

Benihana Las Vegas Boulevard easily accommodates larger groups, with two teppanyaki tables seating parties of 12 and a sushi-area community table fitting a group of 10. Perfect for special events or parties, the restaurant can also seat guests in two semi-private dining rooms, where they can enjoy the teppanyaki show in their own space.

Our server and chef were great. Tomi did a great job keeping the table in a good mood. Food was Benihana quality — and that’s a compliment. But we were seated 35 minutes after our reservation time and the chef arrived 1.5 hours after that, and evidently this is not an isolated incident.

The absolute worse experience for dinner while in a Vegas. Not only were they at least 1 hour late on our reservation, the AC did not work well at all in the restaurant. We were miserable. Short staffed, slow service.
The ONLY great thing was our Chef Kyle. He was wonderful and we truly felt bad that he had to work under those conditions. Avoid this place!

The best experience we have had there so far. Server and chef were great! Food was delicious! Super attentive. We had 11am reservations. Not smokey from the grills yet and quiet enough so we were able to talk to the couple dining with our family of 5.

The initial server who got us seated and took orders, knew nothing about gluten, but basically tried to pretend he was competent. The onion soup is NOT gluten free sir (breaded onion). Please just say you’ll check if you’re not sure. The guy who did our main meal was great and super careful/cautious.

Checked in at 12:20pm for our 12:45pm reservation. The guy at the front desk said they would seat us closer to our reservation so we waited, and waited and waited. By 1:30pm he said they were short staffed and only had 3 cooks yet reservations are backed up and pouring in the door. 1:45pm we finally sat down, starving cranky kids and all. Then the table was broken so we had to move. Food finally started cooking at 2:45pm (2 hours after our reservation). Service at the table was good but the manager seemed worthless. Lots of angry customers, dirty tables and empty glasses he could have easily helped out with and people he could have talked to but didn’t. Seemed too busy talking to and chastising staff. I wouldn’t recommend this location for a few months unless you have 3-4 hours to burn. Also they don’t offer the lunch menu like every other location in the country. We finally paid and left around 3:50pm. Longest lunch I think we have ever had.

URGENT warning to all potential guests - we love Benihana, but this restaurant was not ready to be open for guests. MAJOR staffing issues. 8:30 reservation, no food until 10:45. Two chefs for the entire restaurant. Manager did his best to keep us from walking out, but frankly a single free drink was an exceptionally weak effort. Once the chef was finally ready for our table, the food was traditional, solid Benihana.

We would suggest waiting a week or two until they get their staffing issues in order. If you walk in and don’t see several chefs working, do yourselves a favor and turn around and walk out. You’ll never get those hours back.

Single diner with reservations, arrived 30 minutes early was told if I wanted a table it was going to be a 90 minute wait but I was welcome to sit and dine at the bar. Bartender was pleasant but appeared put out that I was eating at the bar. Tempura vegetables were delicious. Tempura shrimp roll was bland and the famous Benihana chicken rice tasted like it was made from a box.
Not a very good impression for a first time experience at Benihana.

Unfortunately this time ( I come to this location at least once a month ( I’m a local ) it was not worth our time and money . It was an awful evening for me and my husband . We had a reservation at 5:15 PM , as soon as we entered the doors Chrislee ( hostess ) said “ there will be a 1. Hr. Wait time even though we had a reservation for over a month and unfortunately it is NOT the first time !Our biggest frustration is why not send a tex , call , or an email letting you know that they are NOT running on time ? Our time is also very valuable, I asked to speak to the shift manager and luckily Troy came to the rescue and wanted to take care of us , he tried but unfortunately everything was just from bad to worst , we ended leaving and not having dinner . I will not come back to this location , go to the west gate resort they have a Benihana’s inside the casino they are very organized and being late would never happen ! Take it from me .

First time worst experience at Banihana. Took 2 hours chief to come. The waitress was super slow and she kept forgetting things. The chief apologized for the late start and
every single chief had to apologize because of late start. Overall I was disappointed with the service at banihana and never experienced this in LA banihana or bay area banihana.

Menu shows lunch specials; however, when I arrived they stated dinner only at the location. I’m a regular so it didn’t bother me because it’s worth the money but it’s false advertising.

This was my first time experience at a Benihana and will more than likely be my last. The hostess was extremely nice, the server and chef was but it was a completely underwhelming experience. Not at all what I was expecting from a place that is always so highly ranted and raved about. There was a hair in my soup, the server quickly remedied this by bringing out a new bowl. The hibachi “show” was no show honestly. The chef cooked everything and that’s about it. None of the theatrics you would typically see at a hibachi place. I hated that he cut my shrimp up instead of leaving them whole. Usually your plate would be overflowing with food…specifically rice…they put it in a bowl and then give it to you to put on your plate. Chicken was scarce. Now here’s the part that killed me….they give you these I’ll tasting sauces but usually everyone goes to hibachi for yum yum…we’ll I requested yum yum sauce two of the little dishes to be exact…well to my surprise when I got my check I was charged 50 cent each out (6oz). Whatever not the point of the pricing but the fact that they make you pay for it….and it wasn’t even good…extremely thick also. The chef did the onion train at the end while we were eating…??? Isn’t that usually part of the opening act? I think this one experience certainly settled it for me, I’m one and done.

DO NOT GO HERE! We are from out of state, visiting Las Vegas for the third time this year and this is the most awful meal we have had. Hibachi is something we frequent quite often where we are from so when visiting this establishment we thought we would be in for a delicious hibachi meal. Let me start by saying that this place has terrible WiFi and no signal inside, but yet you are expected to use an online menu. When it doesn’t load, the staff refuses to give you a paper menu. After fighting with them, they pull out a holiday menu from who knows what year and it has none of the menu items needed to make a selection. HOW CAN YOU ORDER IF YOU DONT KNOW YOUR OPTIONS OR THE COST?
Then, watch your feet! Grease leaks from their tables all over the floor -and if you are not careful you will wind up getting injured (a lawsuit waiting to happen).
It was our children’s birthday this evening and we thought this would be a nice treat but it was anything but- our server forgot our rice, we had to practically beg for refills of drinks. TERRIBLE!!! Also need to say this place has terrible ventilation, so your eyes will be on fire the entire meal.

The only positive thing I have to say about this place is that Kyle S. our hibachi chef was incredibly personable and tried to do all he could to make up for our terrible service.

Don’t even think to ask for a manager! He will ignore you, give no eye contact while you are talking to him, and act like he doesn’t understand what the problem is after he makes you change tables 3 times! He did take 15% off of the check, but in all honesty— 60$ would have been too much to pay for this awful meal.
Portions are small. Not good. Save your money!

It was our 40th wedding anniversary. We made a reservation for 4:15. We got there a few minutes early. The hostess then apologized and said that they were short staffed that evening. She said it would be about a 50 minute wait. We were not allowed to sit at the bar in the restaurant. We went to a bar nearby for a drink. I got a text about 30 minutes later saying that our table was ready. We almost lost our seats because we had to finish our drinks and pay out. Once we got seated, we had a wonderful experience. The waitress was efficient and the cook was entertaining. And our food was excellent. So, overall it was a good experience. I would rather have been contacted earlier to be notified of the extra wait.
