The best place for Japanese BBQ. In addition, they have Wagyu A5 offered, which is a great opportunity for us to try it without visiting Japan

The absolute worst dining experience which I was looking forward to since it was my birthday. This is NOT fine dining like other Japanese BBQ's we've gone to. It is like a fast food restaurant where you get them in, get their money and get them out as fast as possible. No explanation from the server on what to expect or best way to order to enjoy the dining experience. For starters we got their pork pot stickers and an edamame but with the starter they immediately brought our order of mixed veggies and the two meat items, a chicken and filet mignon. I asked if their were any marinades for the meats. and told I'd have to order those separately. As the meats are already at the table for cooking might as well pass as there won't be time for the marinade to do its work. Also, we're doubtful it was filet mignon which costs more. It seemed more like cheap pieces of red meat cut up for stir fry which many grocery stores sell. Big disappointment as I'm a meat lover. The server whisked everything away as soon as possible so she could bring out the fixings for the s'mores which we told her we wanted to tease of grandchildren to love them. For $6 they bring exactly 1 marshmallow, 2 graham crackers and 2 very small squares of Hershey's milk chocolate candy bar for a person. There are serving people rushing by because we were seated right by the kitchen entrance. Having made the reservation on OpenTable and specifically saying it was for a birthday...and having them call me to verify we were coming and celebrating a birthday I would have thought the hostess would have taken that into consideration prior to sitting us in this location. Finally, we set dinner for 7pm but didn't know that they have an happy hour that has an "all you can eat" price" which ended before we arrived but that large families with small children and yelling babies were still having their "all you can eat" for the whole family. The noise level was unbearable. AVOID IF YOU WANT A NICE PEACEFUL MEAL.

Delicious. We always stop by and eat dinner here when we are in Orlando. Fun experience to grill your own meats and flavorful delicious cuts of meat to try.

I had gone to Gyu-Kaku in NYC before, and that place was a bit more upscale than this one; to be honest, I like the family-oriented decoration more! Feels a lot more comfortable, which is especially important if you want to enjoy all the different options offered. The price is definitely not cheap, but worth it; if ordering a-la-carte feels a bit overwhelming with all the meat options then you can pick a set or take the $40/50/60 all-you-can-eat.

Overall I'd definitely come again!

Gyu-Kaku is such an amazing and fun experience. It brings me back home to what I crave from their original New York City location. You usually see a line to get into the NYC landmark locale that extends out-the-door (rain or snow). The following is strong. I'm glad they chose Orlando to be their home too. The food quality is consistently good. The service and courtesy of the waitstaff is always professional, incredible and they make it a great time.
