I came to Benihana for my dads birthday and the chef cross everything using same utensils and also added the garlic butter which has gluten to everything. If you reserve an entire table and everyone is gluten free you probably could be safe. But if you’re just a small party this isn’t the place to go. I went an hour ago and am now very sick. If you are celiac don’t go here.. the chefs aren’t informed on cross contamination and it will make you sick.

I’m giving this place four stars because although they were knowledgeable about the gluten issue, they started cooking and were about to put regular soy sauce after I explained I had an allergy, and nodded to me saying “are you okay with this” and I said no, so they ended up using gluten free soy sauce for everyone (even for people not in our party). Everything was going alright until they put noodles on the grill... I’m not absolutely sure if the noodles are gf but I don’t think they are. Luckily my food did not touch where the noodles were (I kept a close eye to make sure) otherwise I would have been very sick. The salad that comes with the meal also has dressing that has gluten in it, so they brought vinegar out instead. The soup is not gf. Food wasn’t that tasty... but it is filling. They do have many options for gf people.

Amazing hibachi food! Could not say enough good things about them! We went for my best friends birthday and I was the only Celiac in the party so of course had to ask my usual hundred questions about how my food would be prepared etc. I was told they have gluten free soy sauce (which was amazing) and that if my “allergy” was severe that they would make my food in a separate area in the kitchen, instead of on the hibachi grill with everyone else’s, which I was completely fine with. I ordered he hibachi steak with chicken fried rice. The guy then came over to start making everyone’s food and told me he would make mine as well which made me nervous and I mentioned about cooking it separate in the kitchen, and he told me not to worry. I was definitely worried and watching his every move. However, he was extremely knowledgeable. He made my rice and steak first and then made everyone else’s rice and meat. They use a garlic butter in their rice that has soy sauce so it is not gluten free! He just put regular butter in my rice and of course the gluten free soy sauce. They were great and I felt very comfortable after I saw how knowledgeable they were.

The server made sure that I was taken care of and was very helpful. The chef made my food first to avoid cross contamination. I had the Splash and Meadow which is steak and shrimp. Couldn’t eat the side salad dressing so I asked for oil and vinegar. Couldn’t eat the soup or the 2 dipping sauces. Also got the chicken fried rice w/ gluten free soy sauce. Overall great food and service.

Since I have to be completely gluten free without cross contamination I’m very careful. The staff here was excellent and had all the answers down to the dressings. They take allergies very serious and I didn’t get sick after eating here which is excellent!

We have never gone to the main hall where the chefs put on the show. We usually go to the cafe/sushi bar area. Their hibachi grill options can be made gluten free, which is great for an Asian restaurant. Just be sure to inform the wait staff. I get the side salad with vinegar & oil, and the fried rice done with GF soy sauce. It may take a little longer because they clean the grill.
