We haven't been to a Benihana since the 1980's when there wasn't too many Japanese Restaurants around. We went to this location from Fort Washington, MD since it was easier than going to the location in Bethesda. Both are about 40 miles away. They have...More

This Benihana location might not be typical of others in the chain, but these guys were waaay understaffed. One waiter/bartender to serve about 50 people. Kitchen slow as well. Buyer beware. I wouldn’t suggest this Benihana if you’re in a hurry.

This place is a substandard Japanese steakhouse. The chef was not entertaining and obviously didn't know how to cook most of the food. They up charge for items you get standard at other restaurants. Additionally it was very expensive. Worst tasting and high priced! 2...More

The food is not much better that what you get in a mall food court. Service is adequate and the prices are sky high for a bit of atmosphere with so many other great choices near by!
