At Benihana, all our sauces are created daily from scratch. For our ginger sauces, we bring in fresh ginger each morning and peel, grate and mash it ourselves. The freshly peeled and mashed ginger is combined with chopped onion, vinegar, lemon juice, lemon zest and soy sauce to create our popular Ginger Dipping Sauce. It pairs perfectly with any of our seafood dishes.
Have you ever felt the warmth of an onion volcano? Have you heard a master chef in perfect rhythm? Have you ever tasted waves of flavor from our Blue Ocean Punch or seen fried rice that shows plenty of heart? Have you ever taken in the full symphony of scents rising from a 500-degree grill? Sense a crave at Benihana.
More than fifty years ago, BENIHANA® founder Rocky Aoki set out to bring authentic Japanese cuisine to America and offer guests something out of the ordinary: cuisine with an entertaining flair. His vision was clear and the first of its kind. He wanted the food prepared right at the table, “teppan-yaki” style, with theatrical effects performed by highly trained chefs. Starting as a small, four-table restaurant on New York’s West 56th Street in 1964, BENIHANA® quickly paved the way for mainstream Japanese food in America. Today, Benihana Inc. is the nation’s leading operator of Japanese-inspired teppanyaki and sushi restaurants with 100 restaurants nationwide, including 66 Benihana restaurants, seven Haru Sushi restaurants and 27 RA Sushi restaurants. In addition, 10 franchised Benihana restaurants are operating in the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean.
