A word from Gyu-Kaku - Topanga Canyon
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 is young and 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

Diner Reviews
  • "Place is getting a little run down. Needs a a refresh. Tables have burn marks from hot tongs, lots of scratches, needs a paint job Service was lacking attention (needed water refilled and waited long time, they never brought a dish - until we inquired - response was, "you never got it?""

  • "Upon your first dining trip to this restaurant, you will find offered a Guy-Kaku card. Although it costs a dollar, it pays you back in fold. Every $250 spent, gives you $50 off your meal. And the pleasant surprise is when the bill was $70, used my card and the bill came back at $30. The food is already good but tastes better when its almost free. Dan, our server, was actually the best service I have ever had at this restaurant, because it usually sucks. Just do it."

  • "I made a reservation @7 for my bday, our server was not very efficient, and I had to wait on everything and ask for multiple refills. He forgot the sauces, we never even got the hot one. My family who had never eaten there were not impressed. I've had much better service, it was a holiday I understand. But my bday was marred slightly by the weak service."

  • "A chance to spent time with my 15 year old daughter and enjoy what she wanted for me, for Fathers day . Obvious we didn't make it that day... Food was awesome we ordered a coarse meal with soup salad bimpap(rice dish) and meats 3 plates for each. The salad has jicama and a very plesent dressing , really everything they/you make (cause the burner is in the middle of the table and you cook most of it!) is made or prepaired to perfection .service is just ok don't be surprised Just do it!"

  • "The dining experience started off well, but once the excellent food was delivered it was impossible to get them to come over which sucked when the flame at our table went out. And it took forever for us to get the waiters back over so we could order more food and then they charged us wrong to top it off."

  • "They no longer offer onions on their menu for grilling. I was sad but the dishes are still pretty good. Made a reservation via OpenTable- but the hostess made us wait 15 min and tried to seat a walk-in group before us. I wouldn't have minded if happy hour wasn't about to end - but it was so we showed her out opentable Rez, insisted, and she took us first. Be sure to show the hostess your Reservation or it might not matter. Coming back still for that meat and $1.50 beers :)"

  • "I really wish the service here was better. The food is amazing but every time we've dined at this location we have had mediocre if not horrible service. I'm not asking for anything extra...it would just be nice to have the waiter refill your drink and bring you your entire order rather than waiting until your done and apologize that you want to take the forgotten item off your bill because you never received it. These are just a couple things that have happened each time we've dined. It's horribly consistent. I'd rather visit the Sherman Oaks location. They seem to know how to there job."

  • "We've been to other locations on numerous occasions. This location had the worst service we've ever experienced. Generally like the food at Gyu-Kaku, but it's steadily been going down hill. For the money, it's definitely not worth it these days. Decent at happy hour prices, but definitely not at full price. After 8 years, this was the final for us. Won't be returning."

  • "Gyu Kaku has good food and a huge menu. I always end up going not at happy hour times, so it can be quite pricey. We spent $200 on a dinner for five - with six drinks. But the meat is great. The garlic noodles absolutely yummy, and the desserts also quite good. Also the pot stickers, edaname, etc. is nice. Great for kids cuz they can make S-mores and grill their own meat and veggies."

  • "First time I took my 9 year old to a Korean BBQ place and he enjoyed it. He loved that he can cool his food and pretended to be a grown up. Also the waiter was very accommodating to explain to him how the resturant works"

  • "We had a reservation (from Open Table) and when we got there, we had to wait "while they get your table ready". OK no problem. 20 minutes later, after seeing others who arrived after us get seated, I asked the hostess, who was a bit unfriendly, about our table. She says "Oh, it's been ready". Really?! I'll fast forward to the waiter - who was in training. He took forever to bring our drinks - my lemon drop tasted awful. Then he kept bringing us food we didn't order. When I asked about the food we DID order, he said they hadn't started it yet and it would take a long time. Verbatim, that's what he said. We finally got it - food was okay, not good enough to make up for the horrible service. We won't be back, only because of the BAD service."

  • "Food was great as it always is, service at table was good with Bar glitches but taken care of. BUT the service to get seated from time of check in was over the top BAD approx 25 minutes waiting while walk ups were ushered right in after a few minutes"

  • "Our server had the worst attitude and ruined the whole time for me. This was my third time at this restaurant and they can get packed during happy hour. That being said, I've had slow service before but never downright rude service like I had the other night. Our server didn't even take our drink order for ~20 minutes. She didn't say hi, welcome, turn on the grill, or anything. When she took our order she literally said "what do you want", wrote it down, then walked away with attitude...the absolute worst. I'm not coming back for a long time."

  • "the place would be incredible if the service was better, you cook it yourself what else do they have to do.no cut rolls anymore now no hand rolls. Only beer and Japanese liquor for mixed drinks meats and sukiyaki awesome"

  • "This was my first time at this location. It will probably be my last. The food was delicious, but was overshadowed by the terrible service. When we were seated, my husband mentioned to the hostess that there were still crumbs from the last diners on the booth and the table. She didn't even apologize or wipe them off, just smiled and walked away. It took about 10 minutes before we saw someone willing to take our drink order. The beers were served warm,just the way we like them. Not. The food was fine but when I used the restroom, there were no seat covers, no toilet paper, no paper towels, and no soap. Then there was no one at the front for me to tell so they could fix it. Good thing we like the Beverly Hills location! Far better!"

  • "Great food. My son love to bbq "I love the relaxed feel of this place. I definitely would return to try my favourate dishes. The garlic chicken noodles was amazing and the BBQ chicken was refreshing. The table has own bbq to cook. Everyone loved the flat iron steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable.""

  • "What can I say, we went here for my son's 21st birthday and it was so delicious. I was dubious, because it was in the mall, but the server was great, described to us how to cook on the grill and what to do, and made a starter recommendation that allowed us to sample many things, which we loved. I'd definitely go again, the food was delicious!"
