Gyu-Kaku - Kapiolani
Traditionally called Yakiniku, this Japanese barbecue spot is known for their delicious, fresh (never frozen), high-quality meats!
Enjoy an ice cold beer as you grill your own meat. Happy Hours offer the best deals on food and drinks, so be sure to wind down and get the night started right with us.
Our server Irie was awesome. He made our dining experience extra special with his humor, attentiveness and warm personality.
The waiters are on it. Second time here and enjoy it even if we cook our own food. The kids always eat a lot, they have a blast because we are cooking at the table
Robin, our server, was attentive and quick with service! The food as always was fantastic!
Service was outstanding from the moment my party walked in. Our server Rodney took very good care of us and did not disappoint. The food here was prepped well and looked very appealing. I recommend the cheese wontons and the bistro hanger steak! Will definitely come here again.
Food was tasty. Service was ok. They forgot one of my side dishes but that’s okay.
I really enjoyed the meats. It was extremely tender, which made it very easy to eat.
The place was a little too dark for me to feel comfortable. It was disappointing they did not offer tempura cauliflower when other branches do. Hubby was happy with the size of the Kauai prawns he ordered, but the taste was nothing to write home about. Service was very good. However, all in all the experience was mediocre.
This is one of my favorite places to eat! Darnell gave our family exceptional customer service and food was excellent, we are definitely going back.
Great food, attentive staff, nothing to complain about! We had a great time, and you made my sister’s first Mother’s Day memorable. Thank you very much.
Wandered in off the street while on vacation and found a hidden gem. Loved it, you must go eat there. 5 plus stars. Staff incredibly helpful for first timers.
Nice place for food. It is kind pricey.
Such a fun night out with the family! The food is good and the service is great. I would recommend for a fun group outing!
I appreciate the OpenTable app, that was super convenient. Our main waiter was awesome, very responsive, and a very great attitude. Then all the backup staff were as well as good! Very attentative.
3回行きましたが 2回目は お肉にホッチキスの針とビニールの破片 ３回目はキムチにビニールと異物が入ってました。
The food was a touch too salty, but the service was great and it was a good value.
The food was good, our waiter helped with serving sizes to order and choices, which turned out to be perfect! Little noisy, though...little hard to have conversation. Other than that, it was a fun experience!
Great service and all of the food tasted great too!
Service was mediocre. Food was okay. Nothing special about this location. We prefer the Windward Mall location.
All of the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed alll of the items recommended.
Like that they have special seasonal and consistent standard fare. The seasonal bone broth was hot and full of ingredients. The okonomiyaki was thick and happily covered in sweet sauce. Its fun to cook at the table. I like their apple saketini, too.
Good food, good service!
The soundtrack was boys to men and Whitney Houston. I was relieved temporarily when a single Tupac track played. However when I “axed” the waitress she said the music is the current managers preference
I will not dine there again if slim shady is the dj
Good and good
Awesome value and great service, as usual -- will definitely return!
Made a reservation but still had to wait about an hour and a half! No one checked up on us so we had to check back in and ask for the status of our table, after that the host apologized and got us in with the next available table. We were a little upset but our server Maui was very kind and made our dining experience so much better! Thank you Maui!
Food was good, service was even better. I didn’t realize they renovated the place. Much more spacious now.
Quick service and our server was super attentive and accommodating!
Great service tho what I ordered sukiyaki beef meal had no taste whatsoever had to ask for sauce on the side. Friends enjoyed their meal
This is my go to yakiniku restaurant. One of my all time favorites. From the front staff, to servers, and bussers, service is ALWAYS on it. High quality meats. Ambiance can get loud, but it makes for a nice first date spot.
What I love the most are the employees.
They very friendly,polite and young and energetic.
The food are very delicious and fresh.
Please, keep up the good work and thank you very much.
Great place for BBQ. Workers are attentive and take care
Great food for a affordable price. The staff is amazing and so is the atmosphere.
The food was great and the staff was very friendly, attentive and helpful! The vegetables tasted great and so did the marinate for the meats.
Yooo the music selection was popping that night, & the food was sooooo GOOOD! Everything about gyu-kaku that night was awesome! My 6th yrs anniversary was well spent! Service was awesome, I forgot my servers name but he was on it. Thank you again, will come back soon!
Three of our group of 5 seniors arrived a little early for our 5pm reservation, so we started with some appetizers and a pitcher of beer. Was pleasantly surprised at the tangy sauce served with the calamari appetizer! It is a keeper! Our server (Tien) was very accommodating and we really appreciated that! She promptly brought the AYCE menu when we inquired about it (we initially had the Happy Hour menus). All of the other servers that came by were also very fast and efficient. Keep up your great service!
Really enjoyed the special meat dish that came in a cup (boneless kalbi?). This is definitely another keeper! Our group will definitely be back in the near future. DoCoMo Arigatoo gozaimashita!
We made a reservation because we once came but couldn't get in due to how full the restaurant was. We got a table that was off to the corner, which made getting the attention of the server a bit difficult. But we were able to get our food in a timely manner, got out at a good time too. The service could have been better for a Monday night, but it was sufficient.
Always love going to Gyu-Kaku even after they change from wood charcoal to electric. The price seems a little higher than what I recalled a few months back. The AYCE definitely went up. Not really an option for me after the new price tag. Other than that, the staff were great. Food was great.
We order ramen for lunch and the ramen wsa the one we always cook at home...(xxx noodle company)
The price was $9.00,but you can get around $3.00 at the store...
