The first of its kind. And still the finest.

When the first Benihana opened in 1964, American diners were unfamiliar with the elegance and intricacies of Japanese cuisine. The very thought of having a chef prepare a meal right at your table was completely unheard of. And the idea that exotic Japanese dishes could be blended with a dazzling chef performance was a radical one but it was one that became Benihanas recipe for success, with more than 100 million meals served since 1964.

From our beginnings as a family business on the streets of New York, to our worldwide growth and international recognition as a cultural icon, Benihanas success continues to be a result of our relationships with our guests, investors and employees.
