Benihana 30 Years
By: Fourteen Ten On: August 26, 2016 In: Restaurant Publicity Comments: 0

We invited guests to a celebratory dinner marking the 30th anniversary of Benihana UK on Tuesday 30th August from 6.30pm onwards hosted by Benihana CEO Keiko Ono Aoki at Benihana Chelsea.

While some London restaurants suffer from limited life spans, The Telegraph reported 1,200 restaurants went into administration in 2014, Benihana has stood the test of time since opening in Swiss Cottage in 1986. In the past 30 years the restaurant has firmly established their retro appeal with unchanged menus and flamboyant performances for diners in Piccadilly and Chelsea. Both locations frequently host royalty and celebrities; Princess Diana made regular visits for supper with the young princes to the Swiss Cottage restaurant and Michael Jackson and his entourage took over the entire King’s Road restaurant on a visit to the Capital.

Promotions for Diners:

The public can celebrate this landmark at Benihana over the anniversary weekend with performances from the World Teppan Champions and for 30 days Rocky’s Choice Menu (named in honour of founder Rocky Aoki) will be available for £30 (full dates and details below).

The anniversary dinner will begin with drinks, an informal look at the history of Benihana and followed by dinner with a performance from the World Teppan Champions. There will also be interview time available with CEO Keiko Ono Aoki.

About Benihana UK – My Kitchen Is Your Table:
Rocky “Hiroaki” Aoki opened the first Benihana restaurant in 1964 in New York City. He is the pioneer of “Teppan-yaki” dining being the first to commercialise the homestyle Japanese method of cooking on a hot plate. Each restaurant provides a private chef to every table who creates the meal in front of the diners on the 360 degrees grill. The meals are served in several courses and the guests select the main component of their meal accompanied by an appetiser, soup, salad and sides. The menu also offers a selection of sushi and sashimi.
