Have you been injured at a Hibachi style restaurant (like Bennihana's)?

The other night a group of us went to a Japanese steakhouse where 8 people sit around a large hibachi grill and the chef/cook prepares the food in front of you. Well, he was very young and his knife slipped out of his hand and went flying across the grill. It was not part of the show. It didn't hurt anyone, but it made me think, "I wonder if anyone has ever really gotten injured" or had their hair catch on fire from too much product and fire . . . lol!

  • No, but the food preparation was a sight to behold.

  • I have always wanted to go and just never got around to it. With my luck I would end up with a knife in my eye or walking out with leass fingers then when I went in.

  • I've never been injured but I've always wondered if that's happened to anyone. I love watching them cook and so does my 18 month old. hehe.
