Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ in Vancouver, BC is the ideal spot for an amazing experience in British Columbia! Conveniently located by the Broadway - City Hall!

Enjoy an ice cold beer as you grill your own meat. Happy Hours offer the best deals on food and drinks, so be sure to wind down and get the night started right with us.

Traditionally called Yakiniku, this Japanese barbecue spot is known for their delicious, fresh, high-quality meats!

As we do get very busy during peak hours and we do require reservations for maximum 2 hours dining time only. We are sorry for the inconveniences and we thank you for your cooperation.
For all reservations we do hold a 15 minute grace period for the reserved table, if the party is late after the 15min, the reservation will be cancelled.

Again, we thank you for booking your reservation with Gyu-Kaku and we look forward in seeing you soon!

Sincerely,
Gyu-Kaku Broadway

Meat is quite low quality, unfortunately. But still keeps the charm of the infamous Japanese yakiniku gyukaku.

Food was pretty good. We went during Happy hour and we got great value in food. My only problem with prices was plum wine, it was sooo expensive. Takara Umeshu was 50 dollars a bottle which is easily 3 times the price in a liquor store.

The food was great, however we were given burnt fried garlic and charge $1 for it. The fried garlic at the Richmond location is never burnt and we are never charged for it.

Tasty, but little bit pricey. Good to go during happy hour.
Servers check the tables a few times, very good service, but they are too busy to be called.

It would be helpful if they allowed reservations for parties larger than 6. We had to make 2 separate reservations then request that the tables were close together. That caused a delay and staff had to scramble. We appreciated their effort but it would not have been an issue if they allowed reservations for larger parties.

It was my birthday . We didn’t see a server for roughly 20minutes after we got sat. I am a manager of a restaurant and am not over exaggerating the time. The food is delicious and the price is great though. Just very poor unpersonalized service.

I went to the restaurant to make a reservation for 19 people 2 days before; however, the front desk waitress informed that they don't take reservation for a large group and asked us to go to downtown or Richmond location. We went to this place as we just work right beside the restaurant. We finally made couples reservations. When we went there, they finally could put us together but not informing us there is gratitude fee involved upfront. While we were having the lunch, we knew the restaurant was busy but we asked couples waitresses to help our group to just only take one picture, it took at least 20 mins and all waitresses saying they were busy and be right back to help us. If you will have a large group to go, please don't go to this location.

Always pretty nice to go during lunch hour. Less people, less noise, same great service and awesome food. Better than the DT location in terms of environment. Recently, the great promos are hard to resist.

Hopefully Vancouver will soon have a Japanese style yakiniku restaurant that actually has good quality meat to match its prices! At $140 for 2 adults and 2 young kids (barely ate anything), I expected much better quality at these prices. The hanger steak was mediocre, tenderloin was tough - (probably stewing beef!), and the kalbi short rib is boneless (wth???) There were plenty of staff (that were constantly yelling “welcome” in Japanese) but somehow very difficult to flag someone down to order food etc. I guess it’s easy to slack standards when you’re the only game in town, hopefully these guys will bring up their standards once Vancouver has a better yakiniku option!

Went at lunchtime and tried the Happy Hour set for 2 with sides of Tuna Tataki and Kara-age. Reliably good! Our server was a trainee, so we being regulars had to prompt him about some things like refilling tea and changing the grill -- haha!
