Benihana really stinks

Hamlover | Jun 23, 2005 01:01 PM

Went to Benihana's in Irvine. Wasn't expecting much in the way of good food, but I wanted my four year old to have a fun. Not only was the food even more miserable than I expected, but the Benihana "chef" was a humorless grouch with no interest in entertaining. While I understand the whole "throw the shrimp all over the place" may get old, but isn't that part of the appeal for the patrons (can't be the food). Does anyone know of a better Benihana style place in the OC?
