Upon arrival we were told we didn't have reservations even after showing the confirmation. During dinner a waitress and waiter bumbed into each other and dropped sauces and it go all over my boyfriend. Instead of apologise they walked away. A min later they came back and offered to give him beer. Soon after that everyone kept checking on us. The waitress tried playing with our son to makeup for what they did. We finished eating and left right away. Not sure if we will be returning after that.

Chose the premium all you can eat and there were a lot of different variety of meat and other sides. I especially liked the mushroom and garlic side. Lots of families that came and the food came out in good speed.

No smoke cooking is awesome. The rice bowls and ramen were prepared very well. Service was excellent. Each meat portion had a distinct flavor. I want to show up again and challenge the 90 minute all you can eat.

The food tastes great and it is fun to grill your own food. The happy hour prices -while still astronomical - are a bit lower, so it's worth it for a fun lunch.

The service is beyond slow. Every server acts as if you are a burden as a customer. I cannot overstate how slow and confused every server appears to be.

However, the food is just so good that we continue to go in hopes of at least adequate service!

We went here for a birthday lunch. After reviewing our choices, we decided on the $40 all-you-can-eat menu for everyone (there were 5 of us). We weren't disappointed. Selection was great and we even tried a few items we normally wouldn't have chosen all because it was included (I have a new favorite - Bistro Hanger). Noticed the shrimps seemed larger than we remember from previous visits. Service was superior (in fact, the best we've ever had; multiple people helped; all polite and friendly). Thanks to Gyu-kaku Rancho for making the experience so positive and wonderful. Special thanks to Kayla our primary server.

Interesting "cook it yourself" place. Each table has a "burner" the size of a large frying pan in the center that is shared by everyone at the table. If food is not cooked to your liking one can only blame oneself. The menu is complex. Unless you are 2 or less to a table avoid "all you can eat" options as they are mandatory for all at the table and since the cooking burner has limited space and there is a time allotment for "all you can eat" there will not be enough time for all to cook enough food to make it worthwhile. Imagine (4) people all cooking in the same frying pan. Ingredients were fresh. Service excellent. Limit table to 2 or 3 people and you will enjoy.

The first waitress was great. But than she had to leave. The second waitress didn't even check on us. We had to flag her down more than once. She took so long to collect the bill that we left and didn't end up leaving her a good trip. I usually love coming but her lack of service was horrible.

Horrible food and franchise. "Sukiyaki" was just gluey rice with cloyingly sweet sauce and microscopic fragments of beef. Garlic shrimp noodles were a greasy mess. If you are forced to go here, don't order anything prepared by the chef, just cook your own.

I used to love this restaurant but when I got there yesterday, it was filthy. The tables were not clean ; ugly grease was seeping out underneath the burner onto the table. There was grease on the table . and later both me and my partner became ill. And makes me sad because I used to love it so much.

Fun restaurant to eat at. They are always quick to get food to you to start cooking at table. Drinks are usually kept full. Good varieties available 4 how hungry u are. Great for families and kids. As well as couples. My daughter just got braces. Ramen was perfect 4 her to eat. Not too salty. Fish in foil was soft to eat.
