For Great Dining Fun in Las Vegas, Choose
Chef Kevin - Photos by Robin
Before or after any of the
great shows at the Las Vegas Hilton, stop in for a fantastic dinner
and entertaining fun at the famous Benihana!
originally a coffee shop that opened in Tokyo in 1948 by the Aoki
family. Fifteen years later, Rocky Aoki opened the famous Manhattan
Benihana. Now you can enjoy this wonderful dining concept at the
There is a reason this restaurant has had such great
success… Not only can you watch your food being prepared perfectly
and in front of you, but it is really so much fun as well. The chefs
all love their job and it shows. They interact with all of the
people at their table and are charming and personable. My chef was
Kevin and he was a hoot! While making your dinner, he throws in some
corny, but funny, jokes with his performance!
Benihana offers many
choices on their menu and, believe me, it is difficult to make that
choice! There are several side orders that you can start with such
as the delicious Shrimp Tempura, Calamari Tempura, and the many
fantastic rolls. Be careful though, when you pick your entrée; there
is a lot of extra food that goes along with it. You will be getting
the tasty onion soup, the oh so delish Benihana Salad (I just love
the ginger dressing), a shrimp appetizer, Hibachi vegetables (onions
and zucchini) homemade dipping sauces, steamed rice and Japanese hot
Let me give you some of my recommendations! To
begin with, if you love fried rice you MUST order the Hibachi
Chicken Rice, YUM!!! For your entrée, The Deluxe Treat (Filet Mignon
and Cold Water Lobster) is out of this world fantastic! Go for it!
The Las Vegas Delight (Hibachi chicken and King Salmon) is also
uniquely wonderful. The Hibachi Chateaubriand, Benihana Marina and
the Seafood Combination are also superb choices that are all
succulent and served to perfection!
To enhance your meal,
don’t forget to try the hot Sake or one (or more for added fun!) of
Benihana’s unique and famous specialty drinks. You can even have one
served in a souvenir mug to take home. Go and have a blast! Bring
your friends, family, or even your business associates. Everything
works at Benihana!
I say, “A BIG BRAVO”, to the Las Vegas
Hilton for a perfect Las Vegas evening of fun, dining and
