We were very well greeted at the King’s Road branch of Benihana. The staff were friendly and showed us to a very spacious waiting area with a bar to wait for the rest of our mates to arrive. The initial vibe was good until we were served the onion soup. It was so salty, it tasted like MSG soup and when the chef came to the table to cook our food, I was initially slightly taken away by the fire spectacle but later found it overly fussed. Too much drama.

For the price you pay, even with the toptable promotion, I wouldn’t recommend this place for the food but I would understand how some people might like this restaurant for the entertainment sake. If you you are a group who likes some food tossed into your mouth, you’ll most likely like it here.  Just be prepared to come out of the restaurant smelling like food.
