It was an amazing experience. My friend flew from WA. She enjoyed Gyu Kaku a lot! And it was definitely one of the best Japanese BBQs she had!

Everything still perfect, but New spicy pork was so bitter and weird. Old one is perfect.

Food was great and service was great; only suggestion was that the music and restaurant were very loud so it was often hard for our server to hear us and vice versa with masks on. Definitely would come back, though!

The food is great. It's my second to come here. 5-6 meat for 2 girls. I recommend their meat more than any other dish. Bibimbap is not as great as the meat, but it's ok.

We made a reservation and were made to wait event though we were on time and the restaurant was not even a quarter filled. When we sat down at a table the grill did not work. They tried to get it to work without success. It took them a while to move us to a new table. With the same drinks that were warm after waiting for them to repair the stove. Overall a really bad experience

It’s a good place for Jap BBQ especially now that most places are closed. Food is great and kinda expensive, but the food’s always been on the pricey side at this place.
Service was really attentive.

We wanted outdoor seating but it was drizzling. We were okay with the indoor too since the front doors were completely open and well ventilated. It wasn’t a closed space- decreasing COVID19 risk.

The host took our temperatures before letting us in. The servers were wearing masks and explained to us the ordering and BBQ process.

The garlic chicken was delicious. So were the other dishes.

Every single thing we consumed here was delicious! The corn and cheese appetizer was a risk but it was so worth it. I ordered two of the less expensive BBQ beefs and they were so yummy. Even the smoothie was amazing. Waitress took her time to explain all answers to our questions, and they were very COVID mindful.
