It was my uncle's first visit to Gyu-kaku & we wanted him to experience the AYCE dining because he can EAT! He really enjoyed it so we were all very happy to start the New Year right. We go with the middle range AYCE menu. Joe was a great server who always checked on us & kept our orders coming.

Our server Grace was wonderful. It was our first time there and she was helpful and took wonderful care of us. Service and friendliness are definitely core values that they hold onto. Would recommend Gyu-Kaku everyday of the week and twice on Sunday!

We really enjoyed the all-you-can-eat option. We tried the middle priced AYCE & Dylan was a great server. Even with challenging customers on the table next to us, he kept this cool & gave great service thru the meal. Props to him! We also like their app where you earn points for dining.

My recent trip was for my birthday with my husband. I made a reservation about two weeks ahead of time, in case it was busy during the week, and I'm glad I did! We arrived on time for the reservation but it still took about 20 minutes to seat us, which was pretty disappointing. I took my sister and her husband when they came to visit recently and we had the same wait time without a reservation. The food was excellent, as usual. I wasn't a huge fan of our waitress but she seemed a little busy so I don't think it was anything more than a little stress. Overall, I'd suggest anyone to come here. It is a fun dinner experience with all-you-can-eat dinner options that start at $30 ($35 on Friday & Saturday). They also have hot sake, which is always a good thing!

The vegetarian bibimbap did not have much vegetables and the one with the beef did not have much beef in it. So it would be hard to recommend vegetarians or vegans to the restaurant. Our server Ai- was excellent and so was the Apple Saketini.
The dinner for 2 at $60 was worth the price.
I think it’s a fun place for young people and young families.

The food was amazing as always! We did one of the All-you-can-eat menus. Our server was so informative and helped us out when we got indecisive. The only issues: There was a little bit of a delay getting our table even with the reservation. Also, 2 employees kept trying to get us to leave even though we were still under the 90 minute time limit.

We ended up with a large party of 10 and we had two waiters that were fantastic! Food was excellent and a good time was had by all.
