    Offerings were very good along with the service. I’d say the only downside was the price and also one the veggies. Meat quality was very good.

    First time trying the Burlington location. Restaurant looks decent. Food was good for the value expected. Service was very poor. Servicer seems inexperienced. I went around 3pm. Not many people which was good but I didn't understand why service was so slow including the hostess cleaning the table. No sense of urgency. Before asking for the check, I put in for fried chicken wings to go, which took another 25 minutes. And if I didnt ask, it would of gone unnoticed. They definitely need to work on servicing

    The food at Gyu-Kaku is tasty. Many small dishes to sample from. This location is a bit bland (no bar, no outdoor seating, rather ordinary decor). Other locations of Gyu-Kaku are better. The service was not great, though friendly.

    Gyu-Kaku is always a great dining experience as you get to cook some of your food in front of you right at the table. Our waiter was great and made sure we had everything we needed and the food tasted good too.

    We really enjoyed our lunch at Gyu-Kahu. Food is very fresh and delicious. It's also so fun to grill at your own table. The lunch menu is a great value!

    Really wonderful experience. The food was phenomenal, staff was friendly. In many places where all you can eat is offered, you feel like restaurants cut corners. That’s 100% not the case with them. I just wish they could get more staff so there will be more tables available.

    Not great. I’ll stick to the Boston location. Menu has Soju but they only sell sake. They ran out of shrimp at 830pm on a friday & instead of our server telling us, they tried to drop raw barbecue calamari off. Sorry, not the same as shrimp. The food all tasted the same and it took almost an hour to get our RAW meat. Not sure why this place was struggling. The customer capacity seems small due to the lack of space and there were probably 30 customers max in the building.

    They have recently opened in Burlington and it appeared they are not ready for prime time. Group of five of us had dinner. We ordered a BBQ course preplanned meal. They brought all the small plates at once and filled the table. We had no room to move and had to send things back to make room... Very rushed and disorganized. We also had trouble keeping our table at the right temp to cook the food. The food was good, but not sure what we were eating as it was dropped so fast with really no explanation. One thing we recognized and all liked was the pork belly.

    Very Nice but they need more staff, it was half empty but they couldn’t fill it due to lack of people. Great food and we had a good server but you can’t get in for weeks because of the staffing shortages.

    Great food and service. However no bar which means there is nowhere good to hang out while you wait for your table. Also they began closing up at 930 - our reservation was for 830. I recommend either (a) stop taking reservations earlier than 930 or (b) wait until guests leave before you begin the closing process. Nobody wants to rush through their meal or feel like you are waiting for us to leave.

    Staff was rushed trying to figure out seating and rolls of the various servers. You get the sense they ate trying to flip as many tables as they can. Need a wait area out of the doorway people are standing next to tables as you eat trying to get in. Door opens and you get blasted with outside air. Place is just too small for what they are trying to deliver. Definitely feels like a strip mall restaurant. Overall they can do better, seems like they ate still working out the kinks with the staff.
