Benihana is great. Great food and ambiance. I highly recommend.
Get Ready for a Great Experience. Benihana is like no other place for sushi in friendship heights. They serve everything right before your table. The servers are really skilled. It's great for birthdays especially!
Knife-wielding chefs put on a show at this communal Japanese grill..
Benihana started out as a tiny four-table restaurant in New York City's theater district before becoming an international chain. Diners sit around large tables where chefs ostentatiously chop, slice, stir-fry and grill. Entree options are simple--shrimp, chicken, steak and scallops--and preparation is uniform. Every entree comes with a similar stock of sides: rice, onion soup, shrimp appetizer, iceberg lettuce drizzled with dressing, sauteed vegetables and green tea.
Best All-U-Can-Eat Sushi. The sushi bar section at Benihana (Bethesda) is quite small. The rumor is that they plan on moving to a larger space Fall 2003. However, for $20 per person, you can order as much sushi as you like for as long as you're hungry. Unlike the traditional "sushi buffet" at most other restaurants, which offers a limited number of rolls that you must stand in line to acquire, Behihana lets you place as many individual orders as you prefer and keeps the food coming. The chefs are very professional and the sushi is a world apart from the typical Japanese steakhouse. More fish and more imagination. We have been customers for a year and have come to crave this fine dining experience.
