Excellent food and service. We found the menu to have a great variety, and the restaurant is very unique. We especially enjoyed our server, Michelle. My kids loved it so much we went twice during our 4 day trip to Chicago...and they never agree on anything! We’ll be back when we travel to Chicago again.

Everything was fine. The server was nice. Food was good. Our table was dirty when we sat down, it had onions and peppers on the table. The tongs were dirty, with dried food on them. The condiment bottles with soy sauce on the tables were sticky and needed wiped down. It was kind of gross.

The food and service was outstanding as always. We were going to redeem our points for the 15% off discount using their app, and our server (whose name we should have gotten) kindly wanted us to scan the points for this meal so we had enough points for a bigger discount — 25% off. We always come to one of the Gyu-Kaku branches for special holiday and the service is consistently good.

We came here for a birthday dinner. The food was really good and fun to grill our own meat and s’mores for dessert. We would definitely come back!

We made a reservation and had to wait 25 minutes. The grill was very hot and flames were very high and concerning but the server helped and brought us different food and a new grill

Requested a specific table in advance and marked the occasion as “Birthday” when making this reservation on OpenTable. But our table wasn’t ready even though the table we requested was available and no one ever asked about birthday.

Our service was amazing! We had 2 young children with us and always have trouble with the kids being super hungry while waiting for food to get to the table so we really appreciated being able to feed them pretty soon after ordering. Thank you for keeping the kiddos happy!

Great place, had an awesome meal, we ordered the chefs special, tons of food, everything was perfect, our waiter hooked us up with some seriously spicy sauce, which we appreciated. $140 for two people with tip, including sake, it is Chicago, everything is expensive, wouldn’t eat like that every day, but for an occasional treat, worth every penny! The place is busy, and it is a little loud, not so loud that you can’t hear each other talk, but it is not an intimate dining experience, try to get a table on the third floor if you can, much quieter

The food tastes fresh and the service was excellent. We ordered the Ninja multi-course dinner for three men and we ate our fill. Refills on tea and soda are free. Before ordering the all-you-can-eat menu items, ask your waiter for the details. The tables are close to each other, and you may feel a little crowded. Still, we enjoyed the meal and the experience.

Made it back to our favorite restaurant in the neighborhood since the pandemic and so glad we did. There are some new items and the old favorites are still as good as we remembered! Also great service and safety protocol. Will be returning regularly!

It’s alright but service isn’t that good that the waiter always forgot what we asked for and not came to check us often especially our stove fire kept turning off.

Food is always fresh and tasty. We cook the bbq ourselves quality of meats are consistently good. Table are spaced out pretty far from each other we were comfortable eating without our masks on. Go to place for our date night.
