This was the perfect spot to celebrate my birthday! The ambience has a lively feel, the service is beyond amazing, and the food delicious!! It was lots of fun to share plates of food, cook our meats, and the drinks were wonderful. We will be returning to celebrate and to enjoy!

Delicious meats and a decent value. The noise level here is high during dinner time, which can lead to mistakes on orders. Long wait times if you don't have a reservation, recommended to make on at least two days ahead of time. However the experience of cooking your own meat along with the delicious flavors of the BBQ is amazing. The menu is very good, although I wouldn't recommend this place to a vegetarian.

Made a reservation but was told to wait an additional 15 minutes. They ended up expediting our table, so we only had to wait 5 minutes. Food and service are otherwise great as always.

Very great on a Sunday just to relax, but definitely make sure to make a reservation as they are usually busy right away. Great food and portion sizes. 3rd time and over all a wonderful experience and keeps you engaged with your company.

I lived in Japan for two years and I was so excited to find a table barbecue place like the places I went to there. This is very authentic to the experience I had in Japan and the food was absolutely delicious. Highly recommend! The service was a little bit slow but they were swamped, and the noise level was a little bit high but overall one of the best new restaurant experiences I’ve had in a long time.

First time eating here. We love the foods. The meats are so tender and delicious. We had the Yakinuku, just wish there are vegetables come with the meals or the meats a bit less salty since serve without vegetables.

This restaurant opened in August 2020, during the height of covid pandemic. Tough to begin with, but now is regularly packed. Great food, the meat quality is way above normal restaurants. All marinates are tasty. Plenty of delicious small dishes to enjoy.
Lunch special is amazingly inexpensive. For instance, a 300ml house Sake is only $5. You should download their menu and check for yourself if you're not sure yet.

Even with a reservation I was seated more than 30 minutes late
No one was really attentive
Food was amazing
Only thing is that they were saying they weren’t seating people with no reservations… but I’m fact they were seating walk ins before others.

We really enjoyed the food there. Cooking at your table is always fun and we were not disappointed by the experience and the food. The amount for the price was spot on. We had the service for 3 and left stuffed and happy. Sauces were great. Overall we loved it and will be back!

Only thing I didn't like was that the music is very loud when people are talking all around already. It was hard for us to hear our waitress. Other than that everything was great.

Be careful your bill. Worse service I ever had. Drinks we ordered were not come, we asked waiter to check what’s going on. He said: “can’t you give one minute?” Ok, I know you are busy. Then after we paid. We realized we didn’t get the desert in the set. We ask for it. He said: “I thought you don’t want it”. That’s fine. We just sit down again and ask him to bring our desert. He keeping saying: “I thought you rush to go home”. “Because you push me to rush”…this young man keep defend himself and blame customer! He live in his own assumption and never ask. I keep my mouth shut and ask to talk to manager. She came and gave us 15% discount. She canceled the previous charge and bring new receipt. I just checked the amount and of course I didn’t put tip this time. But when I back home and check credit card. They add tip themselves!? Again, they just do whatever they assume you want to do and blame it’s your fault, then charge your credit card without your permission.

Gyu-Kaku is the definition of a fun restaurant! Going in blind with no expectations is the most fun way to experience Gyu-Kaku and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys grilled veggies and meats. Oh, and s'mores!
