Benihana 50th anniversary Wagyu menu

Following the Japanese decision to lift the ban on Wagyu beef and as part of their 50th anniversary celebrations, Benihana has created a special menu that includes Wagyu beef, lobster plus the choice of either black cod or Scottish fillet so diners can compare Scottish and Wagyu beef side by side.

The full menu also includes soup, salad, sushi, tempura, other appetisers and dessert and will be launched later this month at £50 a head rather than the ongoing price of £90 — a brilliant way for Londoners to try Wagyu in an affordable fashion.

The Benihana style of cooking suits Wagyu beef very well, as the marbling benefits from swift cooking at a high heat and the sweet fragrance given off when cooking (due to increased amino acids) can be appreciated by the diners seated around a Teppan.

The wildly talented NYC hip hop duo The Beni Girls are also in town and will be dropping in and performing at Benihana, King’s Road, for the celebrations.
