Fun for groups
Great for friend hang outs. The Happy Hour Menu is also a great offer for BBQ grilling!

Gyu-Kaku is a fairly big restaurant
Gyu-Kaku is a fairly big restaurant, so it does tend to get busy during some hours. However, the service is terrific and the waiters and waitresses are very kind. Don't be afraid to ask any questions, they're sure to answer it. If you don't know how long to cook the raw meat, just go a head and ask (:

we had been wanting to go
we had been wanting to go for weeks; mostly to understand why it was always so tough to get a reservation between the hours if 5 and 9pm. now we understand completely! food was amazing, atmosphere was fun, and they accommodated our 3 year old like she was a queen. we'll definitely go back!

We always enjoy Gyu-Kaku. We will go back again and again.

Great as always. A nice cross-section of kitchen items and BBQ-yourself meats makes for a wonderful dinner.

I was recommended to come
I was recommended to come and try out Gyu-Kaku by a friend of mine who had stumbled upon this place while looking for Guu Garden. I decided to try it out with my boyfriend on a Sunday evening, and luckily I had made a reservation because as soon as we had arrived, we noticed the large number of people waiting to be seated! The service from the moment we stepped through their doors till the time we left was outstanding! I enjoyed the meal there just as much. We had ordered the meat lovers combination for two people, and on top of that ordered the Spicy Tuna Maki (extremely delicious & fresh), one order of the Takoyaki to start. We also ordered the Beef Garlic Noodles, and to end the night the Taiyaki pancakes with Green tea ice-cream!

We really enjoyed our meal at Gyu-Kaku. I walk by the restaurant at least once a week as it's near to my work, and I'll be popping in again! We ordered the set meal for two people, and there was plenty of food for the two of us, plus for our four-year-old daughter. She loved watching us grill the meat and enjoyed eating it too! The staff were really friendly and helpful.

Delicious and good service
Best service I have ever had at a Japanese restaurant and usually they already have good service! Food was also yummy and they have happy hour before 545pm!

The service and food were both great. My family especially loved the garlic noodle.

Great BBQ spot!
If you love BBQ meat then this is the place in Vancouver. Great place for a meeting. This place is my regular down town, and have never been disappointed. Great food, good service and great value!

Delicious food and exceptional service! Will come again during happy hour :) regular price might be a bit too pricey. Highly recommend!

Great BBQ and fun vibe!
Had a birthday dinner with a group of 8 and enjoyed the experience very much. Food was very tasty and the service was quick and friendly. The only issue was there was only one BBQ burner for the 8 of us which made it hard to grab the food. Other than that, come out for a fun night with friends and family!

My 2nd time coming and it's with a group of friends. Love the food and service. Great environment for drinks too! I would definitely come again during happy hours . Cheers!
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great as usual
My wife and I visit weekly, and always enjoy the experience. This time we had a new waiter but it didn't affect us much.
You could go a dozen times and still not be able to get through all the different items on the menu.
Always tasty, always fun. Highly recommended.

The excellent dining experience
The excellent dining experience began with great service. The servers were attentive, patient and understanding. They explained the menu with every precise detail. They even explained for how long you should be cooking your meat on the grill for. Food was another A + feature. The sides that came with our combination were absolutely delicious; perfectly seasoned and flavoured. The main course which was the meat platter was flawless. You could taste the marinade and tenderness of the meat. The char from the barbecue on these perfectly marinaded meats made the experience even more desirable. Highly recommended, even more highly recommended is the lunch happy hour menu. Book a table for 11:30 am when the happy hour starts.

Everything is good and fresh. You can order anything and be certain it will good. Have a good deal for brunch, happy hour, late night.

Best BBQ in town! Super nice to dine outside during summer time.

Good Japanese BBQ closely to home
We have visited Gyu-Kaku by three for special occasion. This restaurant gave us the Japanese BBQ set and several other dishes of excellent quality and by reasonable price. Due to 'happy hours", our check value did not exceed 110 CND with tips. Nice place closely to our apartment building. We will go there more times.

Fun night with friends
Gyu-kaku is always better with a group of friends. They have a great price for beer on Monday. Servers were all very friendly.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been here many many times. It never disappoints! if you go there often, rmb to sign up for the gyu kaku card!

2013-10-13 @ Gyukaku
Came here for lunch with my girlfriend. Arrived at 11:30am and it was pretty empty, but soon after we had placed our order, people started to stream in.
We ordered the Samurai Set, which is a weekday lunch special ($25.40 for one, $39.95 for two) with a decent amount of food.
I am no expert in the different cuts of meat, but all of the items within the set were very fresh and delicious. The service was decent. The place became quite noisy after a blitz of customers started coming in during the lunch rush hour, but it was not a big issue.
Have never tried eating here for dinner or on weekends, but I would definitely come back here again with friends to try it out. In my opinion, the lunch specials are definitely a good deal!

Great place for family
We had the special for six people and it was excellent and the price was very reasonable, this is our second time there and we hope to return again soon.

Service was amazing!
We went to Gyu kaku on Friday after work. Although it was a very busy night, their service was outstanding. We ordered a dinner combo and the timing between each dish was perfect. Also, our servers were always available when we needed. We were sitting close to their kitchen booth and all servers seemed to be working really hard.
Another thing I was impressed - most of their staff spoke English very well. When you go to authentic Japanese restaurants, it is often hard to find staff who can explain food on the menu in English. Their staff are probably hired locally.
We'll come back again.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
I don't remember how many times I have come here and it is good every single time!
10/13/2013 5:00:00 PM
VERY TASTY, but can u guys
VERY TASTY, but can u guys add a range hood will be better, cuz each time we finish the meal, we always has heavy smell in the cloth, that's awkward if we need go back to company or school.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM

love their meats on the menu, little too pricey for a small plate of marinated meat, but its tasty

Great Experience and Service
Although the hostess messed up my reservation, they managed to quickly regroup and offer my party of two a bigger table than we should have received :) The waitress was super helpful with a quick explanation of the menu and her personal recommendations (which were perfect btw). Their cocktails were amazing and their food, if you can imagine, was even more amazing. I would recommend this to anyone who has not tried this yet!
