Diner Reviews
  • "Affordable food, attentive service. Delicious. Their lunch deal is hard to beat. Starts at $5.95 and you have soup, salad, rice and meat! Appetizers are great too. I loved the tuna volcano crunch and Pork Belly Chips. Sukiyaki Bibimbap rice bowl is not only a steal, but absolutely tasty and filling. Service is great. Staff are very friendly. Everyone, even managers are very helpful. Can't wait to come back."

  • "Service staff was so personable and the manager makes personal outreach to customers. All staff are knowledgeable about their offerings and were helpful with allergy concerns. Good suggestions were given for what to order and how much to order. The food was tasty and well prepared for cooking with accurate cooking instructions given. A fun and enjoyable place for dinner."

  • "We had three beers, two wines and eight dishes for $80 including tax and tip. Loved the addicting cabbage, shrimp, calamari, pork. It reminds me of attending a street fair with so many wonderful little plates."

  • "Best waitress served us on Father's Day dinner at Gyukaku White Plains! Courteous, yet very friendly and attentative, with great big smile. Maitredee was also very professional. It was our best experience yet since the restaurant opened. Manager was also busy assisting busy tables. She's one of the best Gyukaku Manager in NY. Better than Manhattan! For someone who knows about Japanese "Yakiniku" and "Gyukaku" in Japan, this place has made lots of service improvements since its opening. I am happy to see the place busy and doing well, continuing to improve. Great job by both Manager and Staff at Gyu-kaku White Plains!!"

  • "The best part about this is that you get to grill your own meat over a smokeless grill. I went on a first date here and grilling our own food for each other made it very romantic and kept me out of my phone. Also we made s'mores for dessert which was awesome. The waiter did seem like he was new and came around a little too often but he was very courteous. "

  • "Food is really good. You will enjoy a real Japanese BBQ here. But the server seems do not like to serve us, no fill the water when we drink up. Wrong food serving. No smile......"

  • "This was my first time at Gyu-Kaku. The food was quite good. My only complaint is that the air conditioning wasn't strong enough. It was a very warm day and sitting in a booth with a warm bbq. We were there for lunch. Mine came with soup. I was too hot to eat it. Might be great for a winter day. I will go back."

  • "I had my reservations about going to Gyu Kaku because initially I thought it would be mostly raw foods. However, my husband was excited to try this spot so I obliged. The experience was so much fun, tasty, and decently priced. It was so much fun cooking our meats at our table. The chefs prepared everything and all you do is grill your meats and veggies. I know some folks might say that they don't want to pay to cook their own food, but it's definitely worth experiencing. Btw, the drinks aren't included in the course packages, but they only run from $5-$8 during happy hour. "

  • "seems like they lowered the prices from my last visit... all time favorites Harami skirt steak and Kalbi short rib are both a dollar less and so are most other items on the menu. Totally enjoyed the small plates concept. Ordered 5 meats, 3 veggies, 2 apps, a rice dish for 2 people and spent less than $50 on happy hour. $5 cocktails and $3 beer was unforgettable too. Still can't figure out the Japanese greetings but sure do love the energy of the place. Helpful service - everyone helps each other out so it's not difficult to get their attention"

  • "My fiancé took me to the one in manhattan for my bday. I loved it and had a great time. I was excited to see one open locally. I brought my parents with us. We were very disappointed. The service was terrible. Was way too noisy. We will not be going back."

  • "This was my first time at Gyu Kaku, and I must say it was great. My server Steven was the best. He clearly explained everything to me and my friend. He made great food and drink recommendations. The food was great, drinks were great, service was great, overall experience was great. I will definitely be back. I want to personally thank Steven my server."

  • "Service was terrible. Orders came late, when you ask them for something, waiters comes after 10 mins. When we ordered our desserts, one of the managers told us that he will give us the check and that they needed the table because the place is getting pack, mind you we have not even received our desserts yet."

  • "Came back to Gyu-Kaku for dinner. there were 5 of us and we ordered the 6 people set meal. We thought it strange, when the vegetable plates came that there were 4 of everything (4 pieces of corn, 4 pieces of mushroom, 4 pieces of bell pepper) The manager Ivan was very helpful and explained that Gyu-Kaku is mainly a "meat" eating establishment. Although that may be true, i would suggest that when a 6 people set is ordered everyone should be able to have a least 1 piece, therefore having 6 pieces or something. The manager brought 4 more pieces of corn for us, which was a nice gesture. Our bill came to almost $220 without tip but thought it was a great meal."

  • "The food was good but very salty. The waiter was not attentive. He forgot to bring out an additional side dish we ordered and never asked us if we needed anything. We had to keep waving him down to let him know what we needed and what he forgot."
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "The BBQ is built into the tables and so we cooked out meats a variety of different ways. Everything was delicious and the service was prompt. They provided an ice bucket for our sake and were highly detailed about their offerings. A great spot in White Plains."
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "It's like having Tappas, but Korean style. You choose from a variety of meats and vegetables and grill them yourself at the table. The portion sizes are small so you'll get several items per person. The prices are reasonable."
    Dined on 11/19/2013
  • "Not fancy but hearty food, good especially in cold weather. We had the $70 meal for 2 which was more than enuf. The dessert of mille crepes is worth every one of its gazillion calories. The restaurant is dark and seems a little grungy. The floor is sticky and so was the side of our table."
    Dined on 11/16/2013
  • "The service here is beyond lacking. Although the restaurant was almost empty when I was there, my friend and I had to literally flag down anyone who passed by in order to get more drinks and report a problem with our meal. Further, you don't get a lot for your money here. At first glance it seems reasonably priced, but the portions you get are very small and everything is ala carte. Thus, you end up paying a lot for very little. I really wanted to like this place, but I do not plan to return."

  • "Pretty decent though not great Japanese barbeque. Excellent spicy tofu soup - great Kimchee. Everything else was average at best - especially if you have had good Korean barbeque - their version of Bibim Bap and their meats pale in comparison. Sliced steak was not well marinated. Filet Mignon was fatty. Would not return given our experience and prices."
