Other than the hostess was very pleasant
We went during super happy hour and although only a small handful of items had a super happy hour price, the rest of their menu was happy hour priced. This was great as we were able to try a lot of items for less than we expected. I would particularly recommend that carnivores take advantage of super happy hour pricing, as filet mignon is quite a bit cheaper during this time, as is most of the meat on the menu. My friend and I really enjoyed the experience as it was hands on, since you cook everything on the grill yourself. It also allowed us to eat a lot of meat at a cheaper price, as we often don't eat meat at restaurants as it's usually a lot more expensive than buying and cooking it at home. The only downside was the service was not great. Some items took far longer to come out than they should have, and it was almost impossible to flag down our server after they delivered our first batch of items for cooking. Definitely don't go expecting stellar service but the food and prices during super happy hour are worth a visit.
They have a good variety of food and most of them are delicious.
Table was not clean and the sauce bottles were dirty and empty. And we got wrong food with cold face. The fried chicken was unripe. But other food was good as usual. I will go other branch rather than this if I have to eat Japanese BBQ.
delicious food with great service. Having a reservation made life really easy - would recommend
The service was very good, the ambiance was good, but the preparation of the food at this location is so-so. I will not go back.
hitting them all over the world. Vancouver fairs up!
If you dont know how to cook the meet,they are going to tell you.
Service was very slow, no good, a lot of empty seat, still wait half hour
Have been here a number of times now and the food has been consistently good. The servers are all very friendly and very knowledgeable with the menu. I like how the portions are small so you can try different items and the prices are very good especially during happy hour and super happy hour.
• pay street parking; Gyu-Kaku is located on the 2nd floor beside Ihop
• I recommend reservations as this place is always busy & jam packed, you’ll see why
• meal sets are pretty good, its good enough for 2-3 people $50 for the good ones
• the meat marinade is just so good that it’ll make you salivate every time you think about this resto
• comes with small sides like corn & edamame unlike the typical Korean resto wherein they have Kimchi & other side dishes
• for dessert, I chose Lychee ice cream, its light & flavourful
• great service, they top up your tea without you even asking
• they also have points system, if you often, you’ll get free food according to their promo
• check out the photos
We went there for the happy hour. Filet mignon and Toro beef are our all-time favorites.
Great place that I often visit. Love their reward program.
Great restaurant and value
Typical Gyu-kaku quality, but the price is reasonable during their happy hours. One of the meat came still frozen though.
The food was amazing service was good, we are satisfied with the taste,quality and friendly experience with great price!
Really delicious beef sukiyaki and the chicken and shrimp barbecue was surprisingly good, considering the main focus of the menu is beef. Wonderful Takoyaki too. The only complaint I had was that the hostess didn't offer my daughter her birthday ice cream, which was supposed to be free on her special day! We ended up driving to Glenburn's instead, though, which was probably a good decision. :P
always a reliable choice. service is attentive and food is always good
Food was so nice n gooood~ next time I want to visit again with my friends. Making a reservation was so convenient.
Food is good but can’t really tell the difference between sauces, Service is good, over all above average
The beef wasn't as high quality as I had in the past, probably due to madness of dineout
Beautiful Japanese bbq - a good alternative to Shabusen. Expect to leave fully stuffed and satiated.
Always a special treat when dining here. One been here for lunch several times, nut this the first time for dinner. A good variety of meats.
Great food and service! I plan to go back again to try more of their great food!!
Fun and tasty. The broccoli and some of the meat could have been cut into smaller pieces, but everything was delicious and our servers were super sweet and helpful.
We ate here as part of Dine Out Vancouver, and were very pleased with the restaurant. Our food was delicious and plentiful, so much so that I gave my fiancé some of mine! The service was really great, very friendly and attentive. We both agreed that we would be back again!
Our server was very attentive and friendly. He explained every dish and how and how long to grill. It was very noisy but lively. The food was delicious more than I expected. I and my husband invited our friends for New Year get together. They love the food. We enjoyed very much. I recommend the restaurant.
Firstly, need to work on your wait time, at gyu kaku on Nelson, i’ve been seated 5 minutes early or one minute after my reserved time NOT NEARLY TEN MINUTES AFTER.
Secondly, im well aware that all staff have to say welcome and thank you at the start and end of the meal, which was not done and is very poor on reflective true Japanese culture.
Thirdly, My table and I had to constantly ask for our food because the server forgot to write it down and bring it. When it was finally brought it was lukewarm and not hot.
Overall, Gyu Kaku on Nelson set the bar quite high on my standards for any Gyu Kaku location and clearly Gyu Kaku Broadway fell so far under the bar to the point where I will never come back. Gyu Kaku on Nelson is nicer, more orderly, has more respectful and competent staff, and a better authentic japanese environment. I won’t be recommended this specific Gyu Kaku based on all those reasons.
Host wasn’t providing professional customer service
The quality of meat is good. The combo-style menu is good for friends getting together. Recommend for parties of three or more.
Birthday dinner for my husband.
It’s a fun experience. Tasty food. Just don’t go in expecting too much.
Fabulous food, and a blast for the kids. Affordable, get there before 6pm for Happy Hour pricing on some of their menu items
Had so much fun
A good place for gathering and good bbq food
Just disappointed that when I called Gyu-Kaku the Friday, November 10th before the Monday, November 13th reservations, I specifically asked someone on the phone if it was 'Super' Happy Hour on Monday, November 13th and she said 'YES!' Then we arrived that Monday at 2:00 pm, we were told it was not super happy hour, just happy hour! If we only knew, we wouldn't have waited until 2 pm and we could of went earlier for lunch, as we were with our two hungry kids.
Great Place. Love the food and atmosphere . Great communication skills in terms of food service.
