Win-It Wednesday: $40 Benihana Gift Card (3 Winners!)

by Tara Kuczykowski on September 22, 2010 · 569 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday. I’ll be posting 24-hour giveaways at 8 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. ET to give you plenty of chances to win!

For as long as I can remember, Benihana has been a family favorite. The chefs are fun to watch, and sitting around the teppanyaki table is exciting and entertaining. If you've never had an onion volcano erupt before you sip your onion soup, you've been missing out.

The family-style atmosphere and delicious food is enough to keep you coming back. Go for a birthday dinner and get serenaded by the chef and servers for a real treat, and if you're a sushi lover, Benihana has a fantastic selection of sashimi, maki and specialty rolls.

Benihana offers monthly specials, and their September special is one you won't want to miss. For just $38 you'll receive a hibachi ribeye dinner for two with (2) hibachi ribeye steak entrees served with Benihana onion soup, Benihana salad, hibachi shrimp appetizer, mushrooms, hibachi vegetables, homemade dipping sauces, steamed rice and Japanese hot green tea. Pair that with one of their features drinks like a Fuji Appletini or the Sake Sangria, and finish it off with some matcha ice cream.

Three lucky Deal Seeking Mom readers will each win a $40 Benihana Gift Card!

I have had Japanese teppanyaki-style meals so many times it's ridiculous. It is my absolute FAVORITE type of food :) We have a local business hear called Bonzai, but I've never been fortunate enough to eat at Benihana's. I do have the recipe from Benihana's for their fried rice, teriyaki chicken, and ginger sauces though and it's delicious!
