Teppanyaki in LV

Which Teppanyaki place would you suggest in LV? There for three nights.

    If I want a stuffed bird show I would go to Disneyland. Benihana is just fun, corny, but the food is really good. You get to sit with people you don't know and it makes an interesting evening. Plus, living here I don't mind driving around, but if you are visiting it can be nuts. Going to the Hilton is easy. Tip for locals, get a players card and show that you are a local and they will put a sticker on it that gives you 25% off in all the restos, including Benihana!

      I still like Benihana in the Hilton.

        Today's Benihana is nothing like the Benihana of 20 years ago. Back then, it was one large restaurant with an audio-animatronics bird show every hour. It had the most luxurious private dining rooms upstairs.

        Today's Benihana is a collection of four different cuisines sharing the same space. The bird show and private dining rooms are long gone. It's nothing more than a really expensive version of their chain restaurant. Not worth it anymore.

          I was wondering what the Benihana at the Hilton was like. If it is just standard, I am going to pass on it.

          Thanks for all of the suggestions.

        On strip or off? Will you have a car?

          I do not have a car. I would prefer on the strip, but we can travel(if worth it).

            There's two places within a short cab ride. Osaka on W. Sahara or Musashi on Paradise Rd.

            Osaka was the first Japanese restaurant in Las Vegas. Does age and experience make it better? Eh...

            Musashi is good and has both late night and lunch specials. But is it worth it to you? I certainly can't answer.

            If you live somewhere where tepanyaki isn't available, them I would suggest Musashi. It's good, it's tasty and it's reasonable. And the chefs don't think they're circus clowns who are supposed to entertain you rather than feed you well.

              Thank you for the suggestions. I think we are going to hit up Musashi.

                Suggestion... rent a car.The amount of money you will save by eating off strip will more than cover the cost of the rental.
