A word from Gyu-Kaku - Beverly Hills
Social dining - spending time with friends and family - is what Gyu-Kaku (GEW-KAH-KOO) is all about. Gyu-Kaku offers the fun of ‘shared plates,’ inspiring laughter, conversation, and good times. You can’t help it – with a personal grill installed at every table, everyone instantly becomes an expert cook. The staff at Gyu-Kaku are friendly, leading you through the night with helpful suggestions. The sounds around you are of parties and laughter - the perfect choice for first dates, families, and catching up with friends. Gyu-Kaku, meaning "Horn of the Bull" in Japanese provides the authentic Japanese Yakiniku (barbeque) dining experience where our customers share premium cooked meats over a flaming charcoal grill while sipping on Japanese Sake, Shochu and frosty cold beers.Continued

  • "I am a regular at Gyu-Kaku. Great food. Great happy hour. Fun dining experience."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "The restaurant was nice and the food was really good. The staff made us feel very comfortable as we were there celebrating my daughters 22nd birthday. I had never been to this restaurant before. I was supposed at how small the place is especially since this place is a popular hot spot. nevertheless- my family had a great time and will definitely go back!"

  • "Never again was the phrase of the night. We go here on average one a week for years. Our grill had a third working. They were unable to fix it. Barely apologetic and rushed us hard. They grabbed plates we weren't finished with. Their seafood was horrendous. The music was 3x the normal level. They made mo effort to make things right."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "Great food and ambiance. A little loud but its to be expected. The Garlic Noodles and the New Zealand Lamb chops were my favorite. Fun experience overall. Wish they had a better wine selection. Other than that great flavor."

  • "Food is great; you don't be disappointed. Grab a rewards card - you can easily accumulate points and get $25 off when you accumulate just a few. The service isn't great here. The waiters look much too busy and don't follow up with refills unless you call them to your table or they are bringing your food."

  • "I have been to Gyu-Kaku before and had a pleasant experience with a party of 2. We had a party of seven for a birthday. We ordered plates of meat and veggies. We never received ANY of our veggie orders being told there was a party of 15 and there was a delay even tho folks all around us were receiving their veggie orders. We never did get any vegetable orders. I was shocked and appalled. We were charged on our bill for a few items that we never received as well. I spoke with the manager telling him of the terrible service and the lame excuse given. His response"yes I heard". I said "That's it? You heard?". "yes thats it." This place is not cheap.Never again will I dine there. Its really a shame because the food is really good."

  • "Great selection of meats and AWESOME happy hour every day! Service varies but the food is delicious. Highly recommend the Spicy Kalbi Bimbimap...soooooooooooooo yummy. Also, Toro Beef (basically beef bacon)...awesome. We will be back."
    Dined on 2/4/2014
  • "It was the first time we tried japanese barbecue. We indicated this to the waiter, and told him we didn't have a clue on what to do. Other than telling us we has to grill the food ourselves for a couple of minutes there was no explanation. We burn a lot of our food and it was just a general disappointment. Asking waiters how long certain items had to be grilled resulted in the following answer. 'I didn't serve this, so I don't know' Shame as it could have been so much fun. The meats were good, the vegetables also. So no complaints on that front."

  • "I used to come here a lot. I think the menu has been changed for the worst. suddenly there is a fondu option and everything tasted like it was drenched in butter. will opt to drive to Korea Town for the real thing next time."

  • "Have been to a few Gyu-Kakus, this one is not my favourite but the service and food quality was excellent, the ambiance was not as lively as the other GKs I've visited."

  • "this is fun place to go with friends for a few cheap drinks and cheap/good food."
    Dined on 1/6/2014
  • "Have been to this and other Kakus many times and service has always been a little lacking but this time was the worst. Our waiter disappeared several times, some of us finished our meal before one person got any of his meat, drinks were empty for a long time. However, the food was excellent as always which is the main reason anyone ever goes back."

  • "It was a blast cooking your own food and the servers were wonderful. Food was terrific."
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "First, let me say, the food is GOOD! The prices are reasonable enough for you to try a variety of things. Valet parking may take a few minutes because it is shared with another restaurant. I went on a Saturday night. It was so busy that I had to remind them to turn the music on. There is mostly bench seeting so, I couldn't tie my balloons to a chair. There isn't much space on the tables for decoration so, keep it simple. The mixed drinks are not very strong. The wagu and beef belly (looks like bacon) was the best. Friendly service. I WILL DEFINITELY RETURN."

  • "Like having to cook food and have variety foods to choose from. Unfortunately, service was horrendous. Our server went on break, we were told our order was placed & that we would be taken care during the 15 min. It was much much longer. We were NOT taken care of, our order apparently was NOT placed, and we waited close to an hour to start getting ANY food - which of course was vegetables. No rice until the end of dinner, the meat came just before the rice, and we had to ask for our appetizers - of which one came mid-way thru meal, and the food was sporadic in arrival. We arrived hungry - We left hungry because to order more would have meant waiting even longer. I would not recommend this place. Maybe another Gyu-KaKu, but not this location."

  • "The food was beyon excellent. Service was superb. Happy hour specials were great!"
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "The hustle & bustle of this restaurant is vibrant and exciting in terms of the fact that you can grab a delicious (hot or cold sake) and cook your own food! I've been on many an occasion however, the scene never tires. It's a great place to dine with friends, socialize and try new dishes along with old favorites. The service is nothing short of fantastic, the servers and staff are courteous and attentive without being overt. Did I mention the prices are the best part besides the taste! From the valet service guys, front desk hostess to the servers...we just love Gyu Kaku!"
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "I had a great time, the vibe was upbeat and fun. The food was fantastic and so were the cocktails. I will be back!"

    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "I have been to other Gyu-Kakus and always enjoyed the food. However, the service at BH location was dismal. I got there at noon for lunch and no one was at the hostess area. The people who arrived before me had to yell out "hello" before the waitress/hostess came out from the back to seat them. Few minutes later she sat my friend and I (no one else at the restaurant). It took 5 minutes for her to return and take our order. Then, it took another 15 minutes for us to get any food. I had to tell her that I was on a tight schedule and would like our food to come faster because we'd been there 25 minutes and only gotten soup & salad. I felt like I had to hurry and cook my food and swallow it to be able to make it out in an hour. That's crazy."

  • "Came here with two friends for their later happy hour menu around 8:30. It was the first time for one of us and she completely fell in love with this place! I have to admit, this location is much better than the one in West LA. Probably because it's larger, the service is way more better and the food is much more delicious! I highly recommend it! Friendly staff and great service from our waitress. So much food for 3 people, plus the HH bucket of beer (6 beers for $10) all came under $100. The experience was pleasurable and will definitely come again! Bonus: we were given "pull tab"-like cards that had special prizes. We all won something, so it's great to entice us to use these cards to come again. Great marketing, too! LOVE Gyu-Kaku in BH!"

  • "I always enjoy coming here for the great food at very affordable prices. I love the idea of cooking your own food as it adds to the dining experience. I've taken friends both locally and visiting friends to this restaurant as well as dates after a movie . Everyone loves it as much as I do. I Always recommend this place"

  • "We went for a birthday dinner and were pleasantly surprised. The food was very tasty, more than you could eat, and the servers were very friendly and helpful with selections. Definitely going back."
    Dined on 11/13/2013
  • "Ehh.. Dont come in if its super busy. Everything will take about 20 minutes to come out. And they dont give you the appetizer before your meat or rice. I like to have my appetizer before my meat and rice. When your waiter goes on "break" youll have to flag down anyone for something. The last time i came here i was not asked ONCE if i needed anything or if i was ok. I had to flag down any waiter i saw walking by. Seems like If youre shoved in a corner no one will attend to you. My rice came at the END of all my food. I had already cooked all the meat and eaten it before the rice came 40 minutes later. People around me that got there after got all their food right away. service is a 3. They need to work on organizing waiters and service."

  • "We had a very delightful dining experience and enjoyed ourselves. The manager Eric greeted us and his recommendation was excellent. Eric kept coming by to check on us, he made sure that we were comfortable and made our experience wonderful. We feel that he went beyond his job description. The servers were very courteous and prompt with our dishes. We found this to be an excellent restaurant with a lively atmosphere and great service. We were pleased to find that the prices of the dishes were reasonable."
