    I love Gyu-Kaku, and have been to many different locations. I expected a lot from the Cerritos location, since restaurants are usually good when they're fairly new. The quality of food was not good. The garlic fried chicken was dry, the sukiyaki bibimbap was not crispy (guess the hot pot was not hot enough), and the sesame chicken wings did not look appetizing. The service was meh.. Our server forgot to bring a couple of items, and it was not even busy. The Mgr did not check in with us during the meal, and just brought us our change. Not impressed with this location.

    ....that I chose this place for my birthday dinner. I basically convinced my boyfriend to take me here because he had his favorite "Korean BBQ" spot already and didn't want to try anything new! But since it was my night, I chose Gyu Kaku and he has now switched over :) The food is amazing!!!! We got so much food for four people and the price was only perfect! The servers were so great, took care of us, and showed genuine appreciation. Definitely coming back!

    I was invited to the location at Topanga Canyon Mall for happy hour with co-workers and I must say, I had an amazing time. My decision to go to the Cerritos location was to expose my immediate circle of friends to this experience. It was great and I will definitely come back again. My next visit will be for romantic purposes, I will bring my husband.

    I was so happy to learn that Gyu-Kaku opened at a location nearer to me! Now I can go more often! I love this restaurant and will continue to be a repeat customer as long as they continue to make great food and have the great ambiance they usually have. As a plus, I was able to catch their grand opening!! :)
