Ate at Gyu Kaku in Hawaii and this one was comparable to that. Great job by the staff and very fun dining experience. Recommend to all that like Japanese food to try this place and enjoy the wonderful atmoshpere.

I peeked into the kitchen on the way back from the restroom and it was pretty filthy. The floors, etc and that front room table is always cluttered with stuff. We love this place and want to see it succeed. We have recommended this restaurant to everyone we know and we hold parties here all the time.

I come here regularly and love it. Today my server was trashed and spilt water all over the grill and our table. The server cleaned the floor and THEN proceeded to wipe the table with the same rag she wiped the floor with.... meanwhile she then comes back and sets the tongs and utensils on the table where she wiped with the dirty floor rag. She was completely trashed. Her name is HEATHER. I proceeded to tell the hostess and she laughed it off. We left after getting appetizers. This was a Monday night and heather was completely trashed and incapable of being a server.

Had a wonderful time eating ramen and gyoza and just chatting to get away from the everyday cooking. Reminded me of my time in Japan.

This was my first visit to Gyu-Kaku and I am already planning my next dinner here! Fun bbq experience, we ordered the Kansha "Appreciation" course for two and the food was phenomenal, awesome portions. Great place to catch up with friends or a date night spot!

Our experience at Gyu-Kaku was overall very nice. The food was delicious but we were disappointed about the limited menu. Some things were not offered. Our waitress seemed to be on drugs and appeared visibly high which was concerning because she was handling raw food and a very hot grill.

Gyu-Kaku is one of my favorite restaurants in Denver. They provide high quality meat and customer service. Once I heard that they re-opened I immediately made a reservation. I felt safe and was happier than ever to be dining again at Gyu-Kaku.

Great experience. There were 4 of us and we ordered the meal for 4 and it was probably enough food for 6 or 8 people! Delicious we will definitely be going again.

Went to dinner for our wedding anniversary, the food was delicious with plenty of different choices. The pork dumplings are awesome. We tried the duck, garlic shrimp, short rib and steak, all above expectations. Will be returning very soon for our daughter's birthday.

We love Gyu-Kaku and go often for either dinner or lunch. I thought it'd be a fun Valentine's Day dinner for the family, myself, my husband, and our 6 year old son. Our 6 year old son LOVES cooking and being the chef for dinner!
Unfortunately, our Valentine's Dinner did not live up to the usual quality we have come to expect. We had to ask for plates and utensils (after the salad was served), wait a very long time for a grill grate, and remind the waiter of putting oil on the grate. Our son's kid's meal didn't come until my husband and I were halfway done with our meal. The table had not been cleaned and the person who sat us removed trash from near the wall before we sat down while mumbling she thought it had been set up already.
I know that things were out of the waiter's control and I don't fault any one person, but I thought I should share here in hopes the owner or someone can take note for the future - it wasn't the first time y'all had been that busy and we've never had an issue before. It's just more of a bummer when it's a special dinner to celebrate with the family and it's more stressful than anything.

It was my first time to a Gyu-Kaku in the US and it did not disappoint! The happy hour specials are awesome and I would highly recommend going a bit early to take advantage. The course meals are great and the same quality you get in Japan and the beef tongue is delicious.
