Excellent choice if you want to sample different meats and cuisines.

I go to this restaurant all
I go to this restaurant all the time and this is only the second time I've made reservations. I made them well in advance and even had the hostess call to confirm and still had to wait over 20 mins to be seated. I was not happy about that. After being seated, our waitress was prompt but when I ordered a cocktail, she brought me something completely different. I wasn't thrilled about that either. Our grill didn't get changed once, the only thing service wise that went right, was no sesame seeds on the harami miso. Food wise, it was amazing as usual.

The vibe of the restaurant is spectacular. The service is great, and every now and then the manger would come to a table and check on you and I think that's good, from my experience are server came checked on us, the mangers came made sure everything was ok, so again the service is phenomenal. The food is great I like how they tell how long to cook the meat and how knowledgeable the servers are about the food and what is a must get. This would be my regular restaurant instead of going to Chill's. Everything on the menu is good and the drink Satatini (excuse me if I spelled it wrong) is a tasty alcohol drink. I would be back again.

Gyu-Kaku is always fun & great for groups. We took our grandkids with us and they enjoyed cooking the food, esp the s'mores. Food is tasty and a great bargain if you go during happy hour or choose one of their special sets. Service is friendly & efficient.

great Japanese food experience
And you give your dining a twist by becoming the chef. Fun times grilling your food and the meats are so wonderful to the pallate

change is good
i remember this place before it became such a hot spot - now you have to make a reservation waaaay in advance, but it's still worth it. the menu items changed a little and my favorite Starter Kit for $5 is now only available at lunch, but that's okay, it's still YUMMY! I love the filet mignon and the sukiyaki bibimbap! oh and the happy hour $1.50 beer!
5/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Several items were noted to be either larger in size or a great portion served. Some new items were great and enjoyable. I do recommend the new item, wasbi fried shrimp was ws deliciou. The flavors were not overwhelming. The warm bananas and vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup was a hit with taking your taste buds to another level. This was a very enjoyable experience,

Good but LOUD
I enjoy Gyu Kaku and go every couple of weeks. All day happy hour on Mondays is great, and I definitely recommend making a reservation if you want to get seated at a reasonable time. Otherwise, you will have to wait for at least an hour. Regular prices aren't too terrible but HH is a great deal. I just don't like how loud it gets because they blast this weird house/pop music and people are trying to talk really loudly over it.
The menu is pretty extensive and has a lot of variety for meat eaters, pescatarians, vegetarians, and vegan options (just ask for no butter!). The beer and cocktail selection is great too. HH prices for Sapporo - $1.50 draft! Can't beat that.
Fun cook-it-yourself dining experience.
5/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
It's a very good spot the food is great the staff is friendly and very helpful, would have given 5 stars all around but the way they bring the food out is a little erratic, there is no order the starters come out after some of the main courses,they bring all the food at once and it can get overwhelming. It would be nice if they paced the food for you because not only is it coming out to fast there is never enough room for everything and when we bring new people with us they fell rushed like I was the first time I ate here...

Love this place
Food is always fresh. Service is always outstanding. Experience is consistent. I'm a regular now.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome as always!
I always try to hit Gyu-Kaku when I'm in LA (or Tokyo.). Great food, super service. A nice place to relax and have a leisurely dinner. Happy Hour is great too; cheaper food and drinks.
6/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fun and Delicious!
Great food, good service, and awesome Happy Hour specials! So much fun!

Great BBQ Experience
This is my second time coming here and it never disappoints. We like going to restaurants where you get to cook your own food. This is one of our favorite BBQ restaurants. The food is great, the price is reasonable and it's a great place for a date or for groups. I would definitely come back again.
7/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always good - fun to cook your own food over the grill at your table. Meats are great! Will definitely go back again.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
My favorite local joint
My friends and I absolutely LOVE coming here. It's our favorite get-together eating establishment. I would highly recommend Gyu-Kaku for it's excellent lunch menu, happy hour specials, and fun atmosphere.

This was my 2nd visit. The first was with a large group at another location and we had so much fun. This was a bday dinner for my husband and we truly enjoyed ourselves. Our waitress Yuuki was the best. Will definitely be back.

Had a nice lunch. The prices are a little high but the quality seems to be good.

LOVE THIS PLACE
Really great Japanese food for really cheap. Of course, you have to cook it yourself on a little grill in the center of your table, but everyone I have ever taken there finds it to be easy and entertaining. Totally recommend it.

Great Birthday Exeperienc
Had a spontaneous surprise birthday gathering for my husband. It was my husbands as well as everyone's first time at this restaurant and they all loved it! The staff was great to accommodate, our party of ten. The whole team was phenomenal and service was impeccable. I am overjoyed to have this experience to share for many years to come!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our satisfying lunch
We love Yakiniku.. esp. Gyu-Kaku resturant. They have a high quality meat. Delicious food!
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
I gave been going to this restaurant for years and I have never had a bad experience. The food is always amazing, especially the prime rib and short rib. Its a good amount of food for the price. The late night deals are great too. I go a few times a month after the gym just because of how good it is.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always fun drinking sake & beer while taking our time to cook all the yummy food on the grill.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Packed at 10!
Food was terrific, service was excellent. Don't be fooled - failure to answer the phone means they are too busy, not closed, even at 10pm!
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Almost 5 stars
Made a reservation on line but still have to wait for another 20 mins
To get seated. Service and food great if you like to cook/ grill your own food
Great late night specials!

good place to eat.
This is my favorite place to eat. I love the happy hr. Deals.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good but not like it used to be
Still enjoy the food but everything has been scaled back and seems cheaper and more fast food-like -- portions, linens, dishware -- even the menu --- used to be more of a fine-dining/sophisticated experience. Now it seems like its geared toward the younger crowd with happy hour specials and value meals.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Came here for my birthday and had a great time but I have been coming for Happy Hour with my co-workers so I was already familiar with the restaurant. One of my favorite restaurants ever.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
My daughter and I enjoyed everything about this place. The servers were great and the food even better! We'll definitely be back!

Though this restaurant has undergone many changes to their menu since we first started going here (some good, some bad), I still love coming here. Out server, Shawn, was busy with a large party but still very attentive to us!! Thanks Shawn!!!!!

Great Value, Great Meal
Had lunch with a friend this weekend, and brought my little one along, too. Afternoons boast a Happy Hour with 20% off all menu items. You can't beat the meal sets - you get a TON of food, and will not leave hungry. All the appetizers and meats are for two. The veggie platter is a little skimpy - 4 mushrooms, 2 squash, a giant onion slice, foil pack of corn - if you're into veggies, order a second platter if you want more! The kalbi ribs are TO DIE FOR! Nicely marinated, and marbly which means extra tender. The chicken is served with little tin cheese that's reminiscent of Velveeta (you don't need it). Shrimp are HUGE and taste great grilled. Make sure to get the S'mores for dessert!
Service is great, very attentive waitstaff.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Monday is all day happy hour
I loved it!!!!! My second time and I can't wait to go again. Monday's are best to save money, eat big and drink big ( if that's your thing). All day happy hour is AWESOME!!!!!!

Fun Family Dinner
We went on a Saturday night with our 5-year old for a fun family dinner, and Gyu-Kaku did not disappoint! Friendly staff, good food, and fun cooking as a family over the wood fired grill. I definitely recommend getting the combination dinners and sharing -- not a big fan of the fried foods they serve, but the salad, meats and other items were very tasty. Go for Happy Hour, when the prices are even better, even on weekends.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Go Go Gyu
I was not expecting much from a strip mall establishment but was quite surprised & enjoyed the overall experience. It was suggested by my date and turned out to be a good find. I was greeted promptly as i walked in the door, my reservation was checked & was seated promptly within 5 minutes :)... The food was all brought out for us to cook at our leisure and it was an enjoyable evening. The service was always there with a smile and any need we did have. Rosie, I believe was her name.. The only downside was the loud birthday songs but there were a few groups so whaddya gonna do.. Great food, reasonable prices..nice find :)
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant is a great play to go with anybody. Single, couples, or groups, they are happy to serve anybody. The atmosphere is great and everybody is super friendly. They always have specials going on and happy hour almost all the time. Prices are great especially if someone is on a budget. This is one of my favorite restaurants And every time I bring someone new it turns out to be their as well by the end of the evening.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been here a few times and we always bring a newbie! Our group gets bigger every time we go.

Amazing food and service 5 stars!
Went here for Thanksgiving the food was amazing that consisted of quality meats and side dishes. The service from our server was absolutely amazing. He was attentive and made every effort to make sure we were enjoying ourselves and even took the extra time to teach us some of the rules on cooking the foods. Being a prior waiter myself I know all the things that a waiter is suppose to do in order for me to grade them on a job well done and guess what the waiter we had did just that. The staff is friendly and when the server was not there to assist us the staff checked on our table to see if we needed anything. Its rare to go into a restaurant were you walk out completely satisfied with the food and service.
