The restaurant is set to open in the heart of one of Cairo’s luxurious high streets, Walk of Cairo.
The story of Benihana started in 1948 when a Japanese family opened a coffee shop in Tokyo and named it “Benihana,” inspired by the red safflowers that took over the small shop’s entrance. Fifteen years later, Rocky Aoki, who was the owner of the coffee shop, opened his first restaurant in Manhattan and also named it Benihana as a tribute to his family. The rest is now history.
