Frequently Asked Questions
Registration
  1. Why do I need to give you my full name?
    We require the full first and last name as they appear on a valid ID in order to verify your identity when presenting your certificate. Even if you go by a nickname, the name on The Chef's Table account needs to match your ID. Benihana reserves the right to decline the certificate if this information is not accurate.
  2. Why do I need to give you my full date of birth? I'm worried about identity theft.
    Benihana respects the privacy of our members and does not knowingly share with anyone except where required by law. The complete date of birth is required to not only ensure the legal age requirement for participation is met but to verify your identity in our restaurant when redeeming your certificate.
  3. I keep getting an error message about "invalid name." What's happening?
    We do not accept names with a single letter or first initial. The system will not accept periods, spaces or dashes in a name. Please remove these and re-enter the name. If you're still having trouble, please email customer service at thechefstable@benihana.com.
  4. Why do I need to register with an email address from a provider other than Comcast, Facebook, Juno, Netzero?
    These providers are blocking the Birthday Certificate (and many other Benihana emails). You may reach out to your provider directly to inquire about this however to ensure the delivery of your Birthday Certificate, we recommend using an alternate address.
