    When we called to do the reservation this past Sunday knowing we mentioned we have a 2 month old baby, they did not informed us their AC was broken in the back of the restaurant but the front of the restaurant AC was working. I feel like they sat us in the back because we have a baby does not want the crying to disturb other customers in the front. Instead they want to sit us in the back with just fans on and it was 95 degrees outside. We left because our baby could have definitely overheat. We went next door to eat ramen instead with AC that was working

    Our server was very attentive and kind, it was my father’s birthday and staff came and sang him a song and gave him a nicely decorated ice cream plate. Clearly the draw to the establishment are the grills that are integrated into the tables but be aware that the whole restaurant felt scorching hot and the ACs seemed to be running very low. The food was nice though and the experience overall unique.

    We always go out of our way to dine at the Brookline location for the quality of food and service at Gyu-Kaku. The staff is the best.

    Everything was great! Food was great, service was great. Only complain is the room we were in. It’s all the way in the back, it has no air circulation. It’s nice out today, so it was stuffy when we walked in. And then shortly after turning on the grills, it just kept getting hotter and hotter. It’s been like that for many years now, but hoping they’d do something about it in the near future.
