Love love love this place! The meat is always so fresh and the workers are super attentive and know when to change the grill and you’re never left waiting! They just remodeled the place to look more modern. It’s more open and the dividers in between tables are gone. It’s less private but you get used to it. I would recommend this place to anyone!

Had reservations at 7pm didn’t get seated until 7:30pm. Was kind of frustrating having 8 people waiting to sit for 1/2 hr.

It took a long time for everything we sat more than we ate, it was the first time service was as bad as it was and the slowest it was and the meat quality wasn't great either. On top of that it was very cold inside the restaurant at this very cold outside I hate wearing my jacket why I'm eating.
We will try it again hopefully service will be better and food quality will be better and the restaurant will be warmer inside.

My family and I have been going to Gyu-Kaku Huntington Beach, CA location for many years. Best meat selections and price is reasonable. We love the people who serves us and even if Managers and Servers have changed they still give you the best service and will treat you like they have known you for a long time. I have been to Gyu Kaku Tustin and Hawaii but Huntington Beach location is still the best and it is always a good experience every visit.

We couldn’t have had a better experience. We were greeted as soon as we walked in. Once seated we had so many people check on us as food was being delivered and plates were being taken away. Not sure if their service is always this good but it definitely was appreciated. Thank you!

We made a reservation for 5:15, got there right on time and they had us seated by 5:20. The happy hour menu is a great value and our kids loved it. I highly recommend the bibimbap it was so good. Unlike other meat bbq restaurants the basil chicken is actually really tender and delicious. They gave us a guide on how to cook everything properly and reminded us throughout the night so that everything came out perfect. The only constructive criticism I can give is that at the end of the meal they didn’t bus the table so we could eat dessert without a cluttered table.

We have been to this location several times and always get the all-you-can-eat selection. On this visit the server was kind enough to advise us that they were out of several items on the price group we were ordering. I asked if they were substituting them with anything and he told us “no” but continued to recommend we purchase the more expensive all-you-can-eat group instead. The items we did eat were good but we were disappointed that the items we usually eat just happen to be the ones they were out of.

I made a reservation two days before my nephew's birthday. We have six adults. The hostess sat us at a very tiny table that typically fit for four. They made us sat three people at the booth (which should be for two), two on the other side, one at the head of the table was not enough room for the walkway.

I asked the hostess two times to accommodate us with a different table and give us another grill. 6 adults-one grill is ridiculous! The hostess said she had to check with her manager. When she came back, she said, "Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate you." Therefore we walked.

When we go out dining, we do have a lot of options, and we will not put up with unprofessional service. We will not come back here anymore!

Food is good, sometimes a little too marinated or too saucy. The cucumbers are really addicting though.

Everything was good except, it was really hot inside. We expected it to be a bit warm, there is a table grill afterall, but We were sweating.

It was also a tad pricey (total was over $200 for 3) but food was good quality as always.

Arrived on time for my reservation and was told the table was being readied and to please take a seat outside. While we were waiting at least 20 people showed up to eat. It was our first time so we were like wow this must be good. And it was! They honored the happy hour special because we had to wait past the happy hour period. Variety and quality of meat was great. Nice beers on draft and yummy green tea cake dessert. Good vibe and great cheerful waiter.
