I totally recommend this restaurant.
You might miss it while you walk in the street but once you're inside you are well welcomed. The service was perfect. Very nice staff. The food was also very good. Even someone who usually doesn't eat fish might be surprised. Fresh products!
We all enjoyed looking at the Chef cooking right in front of us. I will come back.

The food was OK, albeit the price is too high. But we had an incident that was poorly managed by the staff. We found some hair in our food (no big deal, things happen), only to hear the waiter tell us it's not from them. He came twice to our table to explain - I just wanted my food swapped! The place could be better cleaned as well, the grills are too filthy.

Good authentic food with really nice staff. Brought back many happy memories of visiting Japan. Good sake. If I was really pushed to pick something I thought could have been better was the dessert. Vanilla ice cream with fruit is something we never saw in Japan. Something like a red bean cake with tea round have been perfect. Everything else was great.

We really enjoyed the food, and watching the chef cooking. Staff was nice and patient. Only a small drawback was the smell, but I totally understand, cuz the chef just cook in front of us. Other than that, perfect experience!

Not our first time here, and as such I must say it was quite a disappointment. Previously the food has seemed a much higher quality.
It was not bad - but not especially memorable either. The steak was very tough, the chicken bland. The soup not special...
Honestly, I can't recommend it for the food...but if you like the Japanese Teppanyaki display, then of course it is different than most places in the Hague.

A true Japanese restaurant and the food is very good and authentic. Few places in The Hague can compare to the experience of eating at Benkei; seated around their grills watch as they prepare your teppanyaki and serve it directly to you. Try their sushi that is among the best you can have in and around The Hague.

From the ah restaurant actie last year we got to know Benkai. Since then we have gone back a hand full of times. The food is delicious with a family friendly atmosphere. Our little one of 2yo loves it too. The very last time we were there, we even got extra ice cream and home made truffles and cookies as treats. Highly recommended for anyone who loves steak and sea food!

Enjoyable evening. Friendly service and tasty food. As I have an allergy to shrimp we choose from the card and so did not have the AH set menu. The 2 for 1 action still applied.

We went to Benkei for the first time using the AH spaaractie. We were welcomed by the owner who kindly introduced the menu to us and showed us to our places. We chose for the combined fish and meat menu and we were not disappointed! After a selection of appetizers and a hearty fish soup the chef first prepared the fish on the teppan and then the different types of meat. All food were of excellent quality and cooked to perfection and it's really fun to watch the cook in action.
The service was discrete, "the Japanese Way". The decor needs a bit of polishing up but it's very Japanese, not overloaded.
I would recommend Benkei to anyone who would like to try someting apart from the usual all you can eat stuff and I will definitely come back.

Benkei was a great experience. The host was sincere and friendly, happy to take the time to explain the menu, the food and even some of Japanese culture. He taught us a new way to enjoy sake, and a little bit about the history.
The food was absolutely of the finest quality. The preparation was perfect and the overall experience very, very enjoyable.
I can highly recommend Benkei to anyone who enjoys good dining.

I went to Benkei with my wife to celebrate our anniversary and I have to say it was a great experience. We managed to practice our Japanese and the staff was very understanding and kind. We were even offered a card with more vocabulary. The service was fast efficient and we were not rushed out or in. Food was delicious and properly prepared. I do recommend going to this place to anyone who wants to eat Japanese food. My wife and I will most certainly be returning in the future!
