    I had a lovely time introducing my parents to the amazing food at Gyu-Kaku. They loved the food and were especially grateful that they felt full but not stuffed.

    Thanks for providing the “ponzu” sauce on the table! That was the only missing stuff before since all 3 sauces were pretty similar flavors.

    We love Guy-Kaku but the one in Minneapolis was a little disappointing as it did not offer all you can eat like most other locations. The services was fantastic so was the food but different experience then what we are used to.

    Very fun n, participatory dining! As a first timer, the menu seemed complicated, but the server was a great help. Initially, they tried to seat us at a 2-top wedged between the bathrooms & the bar’s dirty dish area (!), but graciously seated us elsewhere after I expressed my concerns.

    This is a Japanese BBQ restaurant, where you grill your own meat at your table. It’s fun. Their meat and sauce are very tasty. Set menu is reasonable price.

    Absolutely amazing! The food was great and so was the service. It was kind of pricy, but for what we paid for was well worth the cost and so delicious. I'd definitely recommend this anyone and I can't wait to come back again :)

    The grill is inverted and there is suction to suck the hot greasy air from the hot surfaces before they reach the guests. As a result, the place smells clean and the guests do not leave with their clothes smelly, , unlike other grilling places. What a wonderful idea! Food was great and service was very good. One suggestion for improvement is to label the beef with a tag on each dish so the customers would know which cut of beef they are eating. Currently the waiters simply leave the 4, 5 kinds of beef on the table after briefly introducing them and whatever else were being served. As soon as the waiters turn his/her back, the customers would forget whatever cut of beef they are.

    We went to Gyu-Kaku to celebrate my son's birthday. It was our first time at this restaurant. We ordered the 4 person meal (I don't remember what it was called but it included beef, chicken, pork and shrimp as well as appetizers, a noodle dish, salad and desert) Pros: The food is absolutely phenomenal! The flavors are truly wonderful. The server was really great at explaining everything in terms of how it worked and provided us with a little cooking guideline chart. It is really a unique experience and fun for a night out to celebrate something. Although you think it might not be enough food, because the portions look meagre, by the time you have tried everything, you really do leave full. Cons: Very limited parking. Hubby had to park a few blocks away. Very noisy. We thought we might be able to chat while we ate but it was really hard to hear one another. We felt a little rushed but that might have been because we didn't really know how it worked. Plates of meat and other items were being added and empty plates whisked away so quickly that we felt a little anxious. It felt like a lot to take it at the same time. Server would bring 3-4 plates of meat and quickly tell us how long each should cook for and then grab stuff off the table to make room. Before we could discuss who wanted what and start putting items on the grill, the server was back with more or taking things off again. I didn't find it a relaxing experience but again, we were new to things. I imagine that when we go again (and we definitely will) we might get into a bit more of a rhythm. The last con might be the prices, although we knew that going in. A glass of wine $10. Beer very pricey. In the end, 4 people meal plus a few drinks was $240 plus tip (we gave 20%). So if you have $300 for 4 people then enjoy! Summary: The food is truly excellent and for that reason, we will absolutely go again some time.
