If you like Benihana, or the idea of Benihana, be sure to check out Bari Bari when you're next in North Orange County. Self described as a Japanese Steakhouse, Bari Bari offers the showmanship of Benihana at about 20% lower cost, with all the fun, and with a friendly staff. The food is good, too!
You can choose a single meat or seafood entree, or devise your own combination. The meal comes with stir fried vegies and fried rice sizzled up before your eyes. If you're around at lunchtime, all the better. I can't see any difference in the portion size and the price is about 40% less than at dinner.
