Amwaj Rotana’s Japanese-American restaurant, Benihana, launched a new menu specially created by the restaurant’s team of talented chefs.


Executive Chef Ted Espiritu joined Amwaj Rotana Jumeirah Beach – Dubai in August 2016. From the USA, Ted’s career began with a Diploma in Culinary Arts at the Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Chicago, USA.


Guests visiting Benihana can dive into seafood specialties presented on the signature Hibachi grill, as well as new style sashimi, and a piping hot bowl of udon. Every meal starts with a helping of ‘Zensai’ – hot and cold appetizers. Dumplings and Kushiyaki-style skewers also feature on the new menu.
