This was my very first time at a Japanese-style barbecue restaurant and at Gyu Kaku. When I first walked in, the host took me to a table in a more secluded part of the restaurant, which I enjoyed because of the ambiance and calm. Our server was very efficient, attentive, and friendly. After we ordered our meats and started grilling them, our grill kept shutting off every few minutes. We had to constantly flag down our waiter to turn it back on. After about the third time this happened, our server tried to fix the problem but decided it would be better to move us to another table. We were seated in the more noisy part of the restaurant, in a half-booth, half-chair table. I was sitting on the booth part directly underneath the air vent, which started to drip on my shoulder and seat shortly after. My new server was quick to see this happen and mopped up the condensation that collected on the vent. He was also a great server, very fast, and super friendly. He was very apologetic about the vent. After all of those mishaps, we did not receive any discounts for the interesting meal. Overall, our servers were great, it was not their fault that my experience was bad. They were trying their best to make our situation better, but they could not control the broken grill and leaky air vent.

We really like Gyu-Kaku. We crave the ribs, so we come here fairly often. This time, my hubby’s bone in ribs tasted off...like they were going bad and the restaurant in general is feeling very dirty and greasy...which tends to happen at these bbq places. Please give it a good professional cleaning. My feet were sliding around the bathroom floor from the grease and the menu was very sticky. The service was great. Overall the rest of the food was pretty good. Prolly a 3.5 star review.

I always liked Guy Kaku. It's a great fun to prepare your food. It's great to come with friends. Food and service is great. Not your usual restaurant, it's an experience.

The only thing that felt ackward was that the manager came over when we had finished eating and basically asked us for the table. He offered us a drink at the bar, which we didn’t accept and we just left. There were a lot of people waiting to be seated, but still, that has never happened to me before. I felt embarrassed, because I had invited friends who were visiting from out of town and yes we were talking and catching up.

The Outlaws (upcoming YouTube celebs) loved every bit of this experience here in Miami. The chain is just as great in Beverly Hills as well. I highly recommend to my fellow peers and fans who asked where this was in our vlog.

This one was okay. We’ve been to multiple Gyu-Kaku so have a lot to compare against. Service was so-so. Go at happy hour for the best prices. Place was blasting air conditioning so the food got cold pretty quick.
Our table was a little dirty when we got there and we wiped it up ourselves.

Great place for meat lovers. Friendly and prompt service. Great Bartender. Cook your own meat the way you like. Overall, very pleasant, and not so expensive.

I had made reservations for my wifes birthday and I was seated and hour after. We did like the long wait but the Manager was very apologetic and inveted us a round of drinks on the house. Also made our dinning time alot better. I never experinced this but at the end they came thru and came back up from their fall down. We will return.

Amazing food this place never disappoints hence why I keep coming back. This is my second visit to this particular location and the only downside is that it’s a drove from my house but definitely worth it. Definitely try the garlic noodles with chicken and the beef fried rice and you can’t go wrong with any of the meats.

Everything was great until our good came out and it was time to grill it... Our grill didn’t work properly. It stopped every 30 seconds and it was a busy night. The waitress was no where to be found. She said it overheated and poured water down the middle of the grill. Shortly after, it went out again. It was supposed to take approx 45 seconds to cook the meat on each side and it took more like 3 minutes. We ended up not eating the last plate because of the malfunction. Drinks tasted like they were poured out of a premade bottle. Bathrooms were gross. As we were walking out there was a huge spill in the hallway that no one seemed to care about. Overall pretty bad experience.

Great food and good service. The 2 all you can eat choices are a great value and allow you to sample a lot of different meats and vegetables. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive - we never really had to wait for any of our many food and drink orders
