It was great, but my boyfriend had a salad plastic twist in his meal. But it was resolved very quick and we had a great time with the mishap. Will visit again when we come to NYC.

First timer... everything was great, food was delicious. We picked the Ninja package for 3 and it was more than enough for the 3 of us. Service was great! Drink prices are affordable .. we tried Sangria Rose , Mango & Tripleberry. Will definitely recommend to my friends!

This was our first time attending this location-i have been to the times square a few times. Equally as delicious! The happy hour prices are such a bargain, if you haven't been before you need to go. Grilling the food is so fun, and their side dishes and ramen are amazing as well. 10/10

Always my favorite place to go in NYC. Love all the COVID precautions they are taking. My only mild complaint was that the music was a little too loud, but the food was amazing as always, the drinks were great (they do not skimp on the alcohol), and the service was excellent.

We were seated between a very loud (and possibly drunk) couple and a table with three rowdy children. There were plenty of empty tables, but they seated these two parties right next to us. It would have been great if they spaced out the patrons a bit, especially when space permitted.

We will not return to the Resturant due to the terrible experience with her.

If you're looking for a reasonably priced, sensible-casual date spot, there are few better in Midtown than Gyu-Kaku.

This location is not sanitary.
It all started with our table being very dirty as we walked up. Then our seats were broken and slanted, Very uncomfortable. And the next issue was when the bathrooms, they horrid and the sink was broken, I couldn’t even wash my hands after usage.
I have been to all of your New York locations and this was one location I will not be returning too.

The overall dining experience was okay. Food was good, but servers kept forgetting what they have/haven’t served to the table. The service was below average. At first it was all good, but the moment we’ve done our barbecue meat, the waitress just came and turned off the fire. She forgot to give us our s’mores. And we waited for twenty minutes for she showing up to our table again and asked her to turn on the fire for the s’mores. At last, we called for our bill for twice but still waited for over fifteen minutes. Idk what was going on with the last part service on that day.

I love it here. My family and I always go with our friends. They updated their menu post COvID which is amazing! The only thing I miss is the beef bimbimbop rice. It was delicious. Now they only have white rice but Ik they are offering a different beef rice since our visit. We got the Ninja, which was fantastic! The harami steak!!! Wow! All of the beef selections were amazing. The only gripe is the chicken, nothing really special there, but overall would recommend Gyu-Kaku to anyone wanting a fun and different experience. Bring your friends/family here, they will LOVE IT.
