I can’t testify if this tastes the same as the dressing in the restaurants as I haven’t been to a Benihana in decades. But I can tell you it is sweet and tangy and spicy and easy to make.


The only tip I am going to give you is to wait at least one hour before adjusting the flavors. When it was fresh, I thought it was a bit bland and was tempted to add more garlic and ginger. A few hours later I realized that would have been a mistake!
