Benihana Japanese Steakhouse
Benihana is a fabulous Japanese steakhouse experience in downtown Toronto - enjoy the excitement of teppan cooking right at your table. Benihana is the winner of WHERE magazine's 'Most Memorable Meal' award in the Japanese category for two consecutive years.
Benihana Restaurants were founded by Japanese-born entrepreneur Rocky H. Aoki. Benihana Restaurants began in the U.S. and spread quickly throughout the world including, Europe, Australia, South America and Asia. Since 1964, Rocky has been successful in launching close to 80 Benihana restaurants.
Instead of using conventional kitchens, Benihana's highly skilled chefs present and prepare all entrées at a 'hibachi' table (a flat 4' X 3' grill), around which, up to seven guests are seated. (Small dining parties may be seated together with other guests). A fast-paced performance of chopping and juggling creates an exciting teppanyaki-style dining experience for guests of all ages. Benihana is a unique experience for special occasions, tours, and office parties.
Teppan cooking is Benihana's specialty, but guests are also invited to venture their taste buds into more exotic foods from our sushi and sashimi menus.

Locally-Brewed Ontario Spring Water Sake at Benihana
Benihana has its first locally brewed sake, IZUMI (spring water). The Ontario Spring Water Sake Company began brewing rare, high-quality sake this past February that is now exclusive to our hotel. The sake is prepared using traditional Japanese methods and recipes and made with fresh Ontario spring water sourced for ideal sake brewing. Master sake brewers will tell you that high-quality water is a crucial element in the brewing process.
Guest may enjoy the freshly pressed, unpasteurized and unfiltered sake, a style that is currently not available anywhere in Ontario or the eastern seaboard, for the fist time at Benihana. The delicious sake is fruity, rich and delicate; there is no comparison to this high-end Japanese drink. The sake’s delightful flavour is enhanced using special Northern Ontario spring water and prepared in the “Junmai” (pure rice) style.
