    Tasty food well presented. Service friendly. Loud air-conditioning and the whole place looks unkempt and worn down. Open kitchen and empty ugly bar does not add to the ambience. The concept is suited for dating, but the lack of refined ambience puts it on the level of a chinese takeout joint - sad.

    Always love eating here. My only issue — and it’s a real stretch — is that I wish they’d play Japanese music (traditional or modern). American Top 40 doesn’t really fit the atmosphere of a Japanese restaurant. And they have beautiful music. Still my favorite restaurant.

    The location is a bit off the beaten path, surprisingly quiet around the area for a Saturday night but confirms uptown is a weekday area. So strange, but not liking the chaos that is south end makes this a nice option. The food options were plentiful and the price point per amount allowed to order was good. The quality of meat was delicious and we definitely didn’t leave hungry! We had so many different items. I liked the different levels of ordering options. We went with the premium all you can eat option which gave us 45 items and 90 minutes. It’s a lot of food if you do it right, we definitely did! The cucumbers and spicy cabbage salad were great sides to break up all the meat. The corn was lackluster and confusing on how to eat with a serving spoon and no other utensils other than chopsticks. My main issue was with the breakdown of surrounding tables. We had an 8:30 reservation and by 9:20, a lot of the tables were being broken down around us. We were seated near the front of house, closer to the door, so I was surprised they were starting in our area. It was noisy and disruptive while we were trying to have any sort of conversation. If they want to start side work, that’s fine, we’ve worked in restaurants and recognize this is a more in depth breakdown every night. But don’t seat a section you’ve closed or want to break down. That’s just common courtesy. There was a couple on a date that was seated right behind us about 30 minutes after we were seated so now you have 2 couples listening to the clanking of grill break downs and chairs being put up in the section. It just wasn’t ideal for a Saturday night. Also with the server seemed much more attentive to cleaning, waiting on water refills for over 10 minutes. Well more than likely be back but probably more of a group outing than a date night.

    Great experience. Excellent food. Fast delivery of unlimited choices. Food prepared was served hot. Food we had to cook was extremely flavorful. Excellent dining experience. I’ve never been disappointed.

    We had a party of five. They sat us at a table for 4. After appetizers came out the table was just too small and the manager Billy refused to do anything about even though the restaurant was empty. Apparently they cannot take large parties. We ended up having to leave to eat somewhere else.

    We recently celebrated my daughter’s high school graduation at Gyu-Kaku, a place she specifically requested for its unique ambience and exceptional dining experience. The highlight of the evening was undoubtedly the communal cooking experience. Gathering around the table, we shared stories and laughter while preparing our meals together. This interactive approach not only made the dinner more engaging but also fostered a sense of togetherness that elevated the celebration. The food was superb, with each dish thoughtfully crafted and bursting with flavor.
