The place could be fun for bbq but menu outside of bbq is only ok. But what made the experience less pleasant was how dirty we found it. The bathroom was terrible, our cooking utensils had big blobs of old food inside and the table area under the grill was greasy and full of dust.. For me it is enough to skip the place in the future.

Love Gyu Kaku. Was one of their first customers and used to go twice a week. But please.... fix the place up! There are holes in the plaster, the seats are ripped, the booths are rocking back and forth, the lighting is way too bright. Management- go back to the dimly lit ambience you had when you first opened. Play chill lounge music, etc.

we got the Shogun for 6 people...we were left hanging for the next meat everytime. even if the guy who took the empty dishes saw that there’s nothing on the grill anymore. same experience with their all you can eat option before...it takes a long time to call somebody to order the next meat. the food is really good! service definitely needs to improve.

The service was really bad. We got our appetizers after the main dishes of meat and vegetables were given to us to cook. It took forever to flag down our server. It was super busy and just chaotic. I don’t think the all you can eat is worth it. Food wasn’t as good as before. Just a very bad experience overall.

Restaurant is small but it was still very comforting. Service was good, servers were attentive to our needs. Food was really good, Mondays are a good day to go since it's happy hour all day, good budget for two people.

I would recommend someone who wants to grab a simple dinner with friends or family. In my opinion, for general visit in Beverly Hills... I would not recommend anyone to come in if they want to fancy up a nice dinner. That place is good for people just want to stop by and eat. I found this uninteresting because I tried the same restaurant in NYC and it was extremely delicious than here. At least, I tried to eat here and found that less pleasant, not equivalent to NYC.

Very good food, friendly staff. This location is quite rundown, though, needing many repairs, fresh coats of paint (especially in the graffitied men’s room), and general upkeep. It hasn’t been maintained well.

The Meat felt of very poor quality and the waitress found a dead fly on the raw meat that we ordered (Yes, A DEAD FLY!). Also the appetizers came WAAAAY too late after the grilled meats came. Appetizers should come before or at the same time of the main meal. Everything felt like it was done OUT OF ORDER. Also, the macaron ice cream sandwiches tasted really old and stale like they were there for 3 weeks.

Cooking the meat is part of the fun. They have everything here! Spicy tuna to nice steak and plenty of drinks. We got sake and I also had a strawberry milkshake and it was the perfect pair.
I’m a big fan of gyu kaku. It’s smart to make a res!

Really fun place to have dinner with friends and cook your own meal! 😊. Meats were well marinaded and tasty. Best picks were sirloin, filet and the garlic chicken. Also liked the garlic noodles and signature rice. Service was friendly and timely. Place needs a little TLC and a deep clean. Tears in banquettes, light bulbs out or missing ect.

It’s a very small location only one grill at a table unacceptable if you’re going in a large party. Service was horrible they were very short staffed.
