The food was cold and he didn’t seem to care just looked at me so he could walk away. I had to insist on him bringing another rice that was actually hot and took forever. After that he never came back to follow up I had to keep asking another waiter for a refill of water. It was just overall bad service and food. I’ve been to the brea location and Rancho Cucamonga much better. I will never come back here.

I'm a Gyu Kaku regular and this was one of the best times we had. Every time has been pretty good, but today our server Adam was exceptional. Literally everything was done to perfection, all the way down to our waters were never low.

I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try new meats. Everyone loved the Kobe steak. Service was well-timed and friendly, drinks were affordable
