I ordered the all premium all you can eat and it was amazing. Every single thing we ordered was delicious... I don’t even know half of what I was eating. Our server was amazing as well, giving great recommendations since it was our first time here. I would 100% go again and recommend to others.

Our food was good and our server was excellent. Going to the Cerritos location you want a male to wait on you because the females time you to the second and don't come around often. We ordered the all you can eat for 90 minutes - $32. They have a good selection, but 4 premium meats were missing off the menu and they no longer have flavored marshmallows (my favorite lemon) just a regular boring marshmallow for smores. With that being said I think I won't be going back. I'd rather try another place similar. Dessert was a major part of this meal.

Overall, I like this place but the quality of service received this time around at this location was not good. We were getting one item at a time so only one of us could cook (one item at a time) and eat as well. We had to wait about 20 minutes for most of our items because the kitchen was thawing out meat due to a large party that arrived before us. The waiter never told us until inquired about the rest of our food and someone else had already complained about his lack of service to the manager. I understand being short staffed, but...

It all started out perfectly, got seated, server got our, was patient with explaining the menu, our food came out promptly....then after that, I had asked for a refill, which I waited for awhile to get, our combo was missing one dish (appetizer/small dish) that we never got...until I asked for it when our server asked if we were ready for the check. I asked him about the missing dish as well as the dessert that came with the combo - as I was expecting for all of that to come out before the check.

After waiting a good 15 mins, our server told us that they ran out of that dish, but never offered to sub it with something else or adjust the check. I asked for either option and finally after waiting for another 10 mins or so, we got a sub dish which was uncooked so we spent another 5 mins waiting for it to cook on the grill so we can just pack it and take it home.

My bill came out to be over $100 for 2 (with no alcohol) so I think I paid for the type of service where I’m not constantly waiting for all of my food to come out.....

I know it’s not the server’s fault but the service was lacking that evening, maybe it was NYE and maybe they were understaffed but from a consumer’s stand point, when I’m playing over $50 pp, I expect more than subpar service. I go to this location all of the time and usually they are on point, just that night was off.

Maybe I’ll try another location or another establishment with like style food and we’ll see what type of service vs price point o get, just to compare.

My boyfriend and I came for our Christmas Night meal after work. It was both our first time going and it was a nice change from the typical Korean bbq we usually do. We opted for their special menu that they had for the holidays and it was a great price for the amount of food they provide for you. I was also surprised that there was a good amount of people in the restaurant at 9pm on a cold, rainy night. We really enjoyed our meal and look forward to trying their AYCE menu next time.

The service was great and the manager even checked up on us twice, but this was our first time visiting this location and the first time of all Gyu-Kaku’s that the food wasn’t that great. The majority of our meat was salty. We ordered a holiday special, so there was a variety of different meat, but only one of them (Toro) was good, the rest was super salty. We mentioned this to the manager at the end of our meal, and he apologized and said it might be the miso that may have been marinated salty. That was it. Not sure if they fixed it, and also not sure if I would try this place again.

We have a group of 7 people with two stoves tops, one of the stove not working well. The food was semi cold and need to wait for a long time to cook the meats and vegetables as well. I like my food hot, well done and juicy, very disappointed!!

They recently changed their menu which brought some new exciting options! On the flip side the cheese wontons have changed which is usually what brings us to come here. Sadly we won’t be able to have the old style anymore, which means we probably will visit less often, but it still is a great restaurant and the happy hour is great value.

Pretty poor service. Waiter needed to be reminded to bring several things. Several things took a long time to come out. When they did come out, some items were not properly seasoned according to the menu. We ordered garlic shrimp, for instance and were given plain, unseasoned, unmarinated shrimp for example. The plain shrimp not withstanding, the food was very good for the most part, as has been my experience with other gyu-kakus in the past, but the service really left a lot to be desired.

We used to recommend gyu kaku to everyone. Friends will send us picture of them eating at GK without us.
We frequent GK at least once a week.
This last time we went, we seen the menu changed. All of our favorites have changed.
It’s not even worth the drive or price for the big changes.
We almost left when we seen the new menu but my bf was cutting weight for a tournament that day and just wanted to eat. So we stayed. He said we probably won’t go back, I agree.
