It is a little overpriced though. That is why I always think twice when I want to have dinner there

Very noisy. Booths not comfortable. We had to remind the server several times about needing an extra setting. Food was fair. Meat was not very tender.

It depends on the person. If they are very particulate about their food and don't care about AYCE they will like this place. Most people that can eat more, will probably just rather go to KBBQ and spend less for much more value.

Great service and delicious food. The best part of this whole experience was that I was actually seated at the time I scheduled my reservation for so thank you for that.

We came here to celebrate six July birthdays, all boys between the ages of 8-12. The staff handled our entire party so well. The boys enjoyed the experience of cooking their own food and roasting their marshmallows for the Smores. I will definitely be back!

Fun experience. Usually went for the grilled meats, but enjoyed the bibimbap, chicken karaage, and seaweed salad.

Worst service ever. Definitely not coming back. It took 15 mins for us to get a server . Garlic noodle had a hair.

They sat us tight away which was surprising on a Saturday evening. Was very happy with our servers, very attentive and happily gave suggestions.

Loved the food and the concept. This is part of a large international change, and I am hooked -- it will be go too place. Eat and have fun here. But be advised it can be noisey, it can be cramped, and waiter did not explain things well. Nonetheless, loved it.

It's always a fun time when part of the meal is using an in-table grill. It becomes an experience more than just a meal. Its fun, great for sharing, you can cook things to your liking, and it invokes conversation and laughter!

I always asked to be seated with Noemy, she’s the best.
She already knows what we like, she already knows what to bring to the table without us asking or trying to wave a server down.

But today, she was dismissed earlier and someone else took over.
It sure wasn’t the same as soon as she left. The service level declined; for example, I didn’t even get a new iced tea. My ice tea glass remained empty for about 30 minutes. Not good. I will not sit with anyone else again.

Birthday dinner for mom and dad. The food was great and the service was amazing. The only thing that was disappointing was that our party was for five people and they sat us on the table for four people. This made everything a bit more uncomfortable because we had a little room to work with.

Great food. Decent prices for quality of the meat that comes out, but super small portions. When we’d ask for 3 portions at a time, it looked similar to 1 portion and took forever to come out. Our server disappeared for a solid 15 minutes too. Otherwise, food was very tasty.

My dress didn’t smell smoke after we went to Gyukaku. Usually, my dress smells after going to Korean BBQ or any bbq place.

I’ve been here a few times and usually it’s great service, but when we went this most recent time the service was horrible. I think because there was a very loud, obnoxious table right by us and the servers were focused on them. But it ruined our meal. Our waiter split our order up into 2 parts so we didn’t get half of our food until we were done eating already done with our first half, and we didn’t get some of the things we ordered because it would have taken too long to cook because it was in the second grouping, so we just asked to take it off our bill. it also took really long just to get us drinks. service was just very slow and unprofessional. won’t be back for a while but i will be back at some point and i hope the service is better.

I’ve been to this location many times and every time I still got the same standard of the service ( they are great service). The restaurant is easy to notice, but a little bit hard to find parking if you come on the evening. Overall I gave 9.5/10 for this location.

Awesome place to grab dinner with friends. Having to cook your own food helps pace everyone, and gives everyone a chance to actually catch up, or criticize each other’s cooking styles. Lol
