Actor/singer/philanthropist Tyrese Gibson‘s backyard Benihana may be LA’s most amazing restaurant, well at least if we were going on comedian Aziz Ansari’s opinion alone. Yes, Tyrese really does have a private teppanyaki restaurant built in his backyard, it even has its own social handles. Aziz and a few friends (read: The Lonely Island) celebrated a birthday at the Benihana-styled restaurant named GibsiHana. The dinner festivity was sort of a dream come true for the party-goers, it’s been noted that Aziz and company have been trying to gain access to the exclusive private venue since as early as 2013. GibsiHana comes equipped with a small tranquil Japanese-style building complete with a menu and a chef. Tyrese says he would one day like to open it up as a chain spot internationally. Watch the boys turn-up Ace Hood’s ‘Bugatti’ below and watch a tour of the restaurant above.
A few years ago, my brother notified myself and @thelonelyisland that @tyrese had built a private Benihana restaurant at his home. Last night, @tyrese made our dreams come true and we celebrated @thecarolinagentleman’s birthday at the one and only – GIBSIHANA!!!! TO BE CLEAR – THIS IS NOT A BENIHANA. THIS IS A RESTAURANT IN @TYRESE’S BACKYARD. IT IS AMAZING. (Video by @davidcho) A video posted by @azizansari on
