I don’t think the occasion you pick matters because I chose for my Anniversay and they tried to give me a table by the dishes with no privacy others then that it was fine

Gyu-Kaku is a fun place and meat is of good quality. Cooper Squ/East Village is the best location of Gyu-Kaku in NYC.

The host was on his phone as we walked in. We were not greeted or anything. A few minutes later, he realized that we were just standing there and asked if we were being helped. I ordered cheese wontons & the center was cold. When they “remade” it was basically burnt. I was just over it at that point. This used to be my favorite location, but the service has fallen off.

We only realized the restaurant was already shut down because of the fire when we got there. Opentable should not take reservations if it's not available. Thank you!
