Items were missing from our order, probably because they rushed in bringing the food all at once and we only realized at the end that we were never served shrimp which was part of our order. Need better quality control.

The service was poor and there's a 90 minute limit at the table. They also got rid of my reservation when we only showed up 5 minutes late. Parking is hard to find in the area.

Made reservation for 8 pm but did not get seated closed to 9. The hostess said there’s 5 to 6 parties ahead of us. Reservation didn’t matter to them. It was first come first basis. Hostess was not helpful at all. Not to friendly. Would not recommend this place.

Great quality, each round of meat took much longer than we would've liked due to the 90 minute time limit that's given. Still worked out because they were also lenient on the time limit. Christina was pleasant but she may have been given too many tables to wait on causing the lag in service.
Overall I'd give the whole experience a 4.5 out of 5.

This is a fun place to dine. You order your food (meats) and it is brought
to the table raw and everyone gets to cook their own on the central fire pit
that is at each table.

The meats are tasty. There are several different kinds to chose from.
There are side vegetables and rice bowls which are delicious as well.

The service is good with servers checking back often.
Everyone here seems to be having a good time.
It is especially good for families as children seem to really enjoy.

The food was really good! I had forgotten how mush I enjoyed this place. The garlic noodles were really tasty and the beef bimibop was just the way it should be with the rice nicely caramelized. The piers belly was more meaty than fatty which I appreciate but others may prefer more fat for a moister meat. The Harami was good as well. One of my favorite things I are the s’mores! The perfect finish! Service was good. The right amount of attentiveness.

The environment could use a little freshening up. The paint is pretty tired and there are dings in the wall. The bathroom is also dated and could use to be brightened up.

Overall, enjoyed the food and the environment will not prevent me from returning. I brought my friend for the first time and she enjoyed cooking on the grill and the food.

I had a party of 7.
After two of my friends ordered the shrimp noodles and they arrived. Two more of my party wanted the same thing to which they were not able to order it as the waiter told them that the kitchen was all out! How?
Experience not fully fulfilled

My husband and I had our first date here so it holds a lot of sentimental memories. We have been coming to this place for the past 6 years. We hadn’t been in a year because every time we went there was a very long wait. So this time I made reservations and we took our 2 year old daughter and was so looking forward to making more memories and enjoying yummy food. Boy were we disappointed. They were out of a lot of things, pushed an all you can eat when the choices available weren’t any to our liking. It took more than 15 minutes for a waiter to come to our table and forever until our food came which we had to cook. The music was super loud and I realized this isn’t our place anymore. Great for younger crowd that want to drink and eat food with minimum expectations.

We made a reservation for 7 pm but were not seated until after 730 pm. We had plans afterward that had to be cut short. Reservations only work if they are adhered to by both patron and restaurant.

This was my first time back in a few years, and my experience was not pleasant unfortunately. Decent food but service was poor. Flames of the grill became insane to the point it burnt the meat as soon as I put it down and almost burnt my hand, but servers kept blaming the fat in the meat. It was only after multiple desperate complaints to the servers who rarely came by, one of them squeezed lemon into the flame and we were able to cook our last meat which was pork belly- the fattiest of meat- without any problem. I was really annoyed at that point knowing that we could’ve enjoyed our meal much more if the server had taken care of the issue sooner.

Loved the food, helpful waitress, and fun cooking experience.... BUT was really put off by the super loud clubbing-esque music??? My friend and I found it distracting, loud, and a generally strange choice.

Overall, I’ll be back. I had a lot of fun. I’ll just ask to be far away from the speakers.

On a visit to LA we found Gyu-Kaku through search and Yelp and liked the concept and price range. We ordered the "all-you-can-eat" which we were happy to find that they discount for seniors (60+). The food and sauces were all tasty and the service was excellent. We enjoyed the on-the-table BBQ including S'mores for dessert.
