Gyu-kaku - Cupertino Ratings and Reviews
As usual, everything was wonderful from start to finish.
My friend and I split the meat lovers combo meal. It comes with a ton of meats, a chicken and a shrimp order for you to bbq, as well as a salad, karage, miso soup, rice, and edamame. Everything was delicious.
We were seated within minutes of our reservation and the waiter was over quickly to take our orders, which was great. They were also very attentive during the meal, which was nice when we wanted refills etc... All in all, I couldn’t recommend this place more. It’s a fun, chilled out meal and it’s all for a really fair price. (Definitely sign up for their points plan too!)
*You’ll definitely want to make a reservation to eat here, otherwise be prepared for a long wait.
I've been to the Guy-Kaku in Kapolei, Hawaii and loved the food, service, ambiance, pretty much everything. When I visited California I was so excited to find out they had a restaurant in Cupertino. I scheduled a reservation because I knew our time was limited. We were first to be seated since we had reservations but was last served. Everyone that was in line pretty much was served before us. This wasn't the only issue we had. We had to ask for water refills when clearly all our neighbors were being tended to. They also forgot to bring out an item we ordered. The food portions were also smaller than what we had in Hawaii. Needless to say I would never come to this location again. I would also recommend you try another location elsewhere, the food was not worth the service.
They kick you out of your table after you pay the bill when you’re trying to finish your beer. Mind you with a mighty glare! They care only about turning the table.
We had a good dinner overall. We ordered the $80 sampler, kimchi (which was delivered to us when we’re slmost done with our food), soda, beer, and rice balls. If it wasn’t for my husband wanting to try it out, I would have opt out for some better food and service.
Amazing food!!! Very pricy, but worth the bite. Would recommend more promotion on the happy hour (It was very unfortunate our party barely missed it!) I also wish there was a discount for birthdays and slightly bigger portions. Otherwise, awesome place to go to!
I love this place but this time the service was exceptional! I wish I had gotten names. It was my friends birthday and they made it special. Even though we were there for over 2 hours talking and eating slow they never rushed us. the food is great and it is fun!
Staff was super friendly, attentive, and fairly fast with a minor delay in getting food but overall amazing! I've been here before but my friends hadn't, no one explained the sauces and how long to cook each meat. Fortunately I had been there before but I couldn't recall everything. But for the most part you can tell when meat is cooked so I don't think the guidance was too important unless we were having fish. But overall amazing experience!
Amazing place! I've been here atleast 5 times and it always amazes me. Cheaper than most korean bbq buffets charging more for one person. Reservations are key to having the tastiest meat in my opinion. I would of course recommend more friends to eat out in this restaurant. 10/10
This was the second time I'd been here, and I enjoyed it even more than the first time. The waiter was outstanding. The meat was so yummy. And it's fun to cook at the table. I'm looking forward to the next time. The one bummer was that they were out of ICE!!! On a Saturday night! So I couldn't get the cocktail I wanted.
I have been there a couple of times. But the last time, the experience was not great. I felt uncomfortable because previous times I had good experience, but this time with coworker the waitress was not up to part. She didn't know the menu very well. When we asked for food she was unaware of the choices we were making. My coworker asked for hot tea and got room temperature tea in a glass. The best part is that we ask to split the receipt in 5. When she returned, she said that she split the cost in 4. We realize she lost one of my coworkers credit card. We search in the store for 10min. Finally, when she ask to do the split again. She just charged my coworker 1/4 of the price. Instead of cancelling our transaction and re-doing the math to split in 5... We ended up overpaying for our food because we didn't want to deal with the confusion.
Awesome place that my girlfriend and I go to on the regular. Love being able to BBQ my own meat, all the food is delicious (recommend the garlic noodles), and it is pretty cheap! Monday is happy hour all day and this whole summer has been pretty much a happy hour menu 24/7 (including $10 pitchers) - we'll pig out and spend $50 for the two of us, with the pitcher. If you've never been, make sure to check it out!
I was running a bit late for my reservation but they called my five mins after my time to confirm I was going and reassured me my table will be ready when I arrive. The food was great but I wish my waiter gave instructions on grill time. Food was great and ambiance was lively.
We came here for the first time last week, but definitely not for the last time! It was AWESOME!
The servers were happy to explain us how it worked and gave us some instructions about how to grill the food. It was so much fun! We'll be coming here again soon :)
