I love Benihana. I passed by a few days after their opening and ordered the entire sashimi selection. It was of high quality and extremely filling. Their wakame salad’s great too.
Service was awesome, order and the waiters, supervisors and managers handled all my constant menu nagging with total professionalism. They answered my questions wholeheartedly- without the slightest sense of “ugh” or “uff“. I annoyed the waitress for extra ginger, and she just kept on serving me more with what seemed to be an infinite supply of great attitude and smiles.
Unfortunately, this isn’t a review.
Dear Benihana Kuwait
I don’t get it. I read it thoroughly, and I can’t seem to comprehend why you’re taking legal actions for a review that isn’t the least bit negative. Even if you saw it as being negative, why not take contructive criticism positively? If anything, Mark’s doing you a favor. He’s offering his extensive restaurant-reviewing experience free of charge. He posted about Benihana before some of us even knew Benihana existed (I found out about it through 248am- never knew you guys existed). Personally, I enjoy reading his reviews because Mark’s a strict reviewer.
I enjoyed my savory dishes at Benihana because Mark posted about Benihana. Be it negative, nuetral or positive, I went and enjoyed my stay. So will every reader of his blog.
In my opinion, you’ve defamed yourself. Suing someone for freedom of speech is low by any standards. What could have been seen as an opportunity was seen as a problem, and in order to solve that problem you went ahead and sued one of the most influential bloggers in Kuwait. Fail.
