Went during our recent visit to Key West and had the best meal and experience. My family loves Japanese steak houses and this was one of the best we have been too. It's pricy but worth it and a must if in Key West.

Thank you for writing. Our Hibachi Chicken Fried Rice is my personal favorite as well. It required a tremendous amount of prep time daily but well worth the effort as you agree. Hope to serve you again soon. Arigato, Mark H - Owner

We went here during Spring Break and the place was beyond packed, but they seated us within 5 minutes of arriving on-time for our reservation. Food was excellent. Chef was fun. We were not disappointed with our Key West Benihana experience.
