Mother's day, not to crowded, had to move tables because our grill would not heat up, wait staff handled it well, drinks refilled promptly and food arrived quickly, almost to fast, one drawback was they stopped with the ice cream sandwiches on the all you can eat menu.

We order all you can eat premium, for 5 people. The food was very good. The meat was very tender. We loved the beef and spicy pork very tasty.the shrimp were jumbo size and the pot stickers were good and crispy. My favorite veggie is the spinach with butter and garlic. This is the only way to go for the value. About 32.00 per person well worth the price. The cocktails were fresh ingredients and Strong (a good thing) my favorite was the lemon drop, made with re a l fresh lemons not a mix, so good!

This is my favorite restaurant! The service and the food are FANTASTIC. I’ve never had food that wasn’t perfect or staff that wasn’t extremely courteous here. It’s a little loud sometimes, but other than that, it’s perfection.

It is always best to make reservations at Gyu-Kaku!! This will have you avoid a long wait time. The food and service is always great. The weekend brunch is more than enough food for 2-3 people.

We ordered all you can ear the server brought out the beer first and it was warm before we got are food and we ordered salads and it came in the middle of dinner I asked for twice and the server said they weren’t ready yet but other people were getting there’s around us ? O yea when they brought us food we had no screen to cook it on and then we had to,wait for it to get hot..and when I asked for a refill on soda ice took my glass but never brought me a refill...me and my husband had some rice left and I said please don’t throw it away but he said you can’t take it home BecauseAll you can eat.then when we got the bill they changed us for Saturday price in stead of Sunday.also we told them we were Senior citizen price but that was not on the bill....kinda frustrating but we love the food.......

We come here often and we will continue to do back. But this time their AC was broken and it was so hot in the restaurant it made our dinner uncomfortable. Worst part was we were celebrating our daughters 15th birthday and it was so hot we couldn’t really enjoy it

It was so incredibly hot in there it was difficult to concentrate on the experience. I had a good time with my family but wayyyyy too hot in there from all the cookers. Anticipate, turn the air conditioners up during peak hours guys! Kyle was a great waiter tho.

the remodel is "finished" but there are still spots where it is not done on the interior of building. since the remodel they have reduced the portions on their preset courses while maintaining same price point.

service left alot to be desired everything came out disorganized recieved meats before salads and rice arrived late and undercooked. could not get the waiters attention to get a refill, and had a 30 minute wait to recieve the check

It’s a smart idea to try to reserve a table beforehand. We got sat right away with a reservation. The waitress was very helpful and kind! I’m so glad we chose this place for dinner ! I loved it. There are so many great food choices. It’s a bit pricey but if you’re looking for delicious meat and Asian choices then you won’t regret it . Our bill came out to 140 but we ordered plenty of food and alcohol. Their beer is always nice and cold. Overall a great experience

First time here and wasn’t too sure about it based on other similar style restaurants I’ve been too. Food was fantastic! Pre marinaded and extra sauces at table. We had a big group and ordered one of the group options and everything was awesome from the salad and gyoza to pork and beef. Everyone was stuffed and actually enjoyed cooking the food. Service was extremely fast and friendly and helpful. Great experience but taste of the food was definitely the highlight.

The best part of eating here was waiting less than a minute to get seated knowing that there were people waiting to be seated before us. The restaurant texted us to confirm our table was ready and they will hold it for 10 minutes. The food was good. My boyfriend and I have been to the Pasadena location and we feel like we were served more of the house fried rice than at Rancho. Nonetheless, it was good. We did have a problem with the fire turning off on us back to back within minutes of turning it on and we had to wait a while until our waiter was around to have her turn it back on.

Food was good service was good but this place needs a complete makeover. Walls are dirty paint is old and marked. This place is totally run down and unkept.
I will not eat there again until they close it down and renovate.
If you eat there get up and walk around and you will see what I mean.

Amazing restaurant. I'd recommend this from 1-6 people. The menu is expansive and unique. Everything is delicious so completely worth the price. Amazing date idea and family outing just expect to pay more then 25$ a person for the full experience.

We enjoy going to Gyu-Kaku & love the food. Taste of food is consistent and good. Management doesn't do a good job at this location having tables ready for reservations, you still have to wait. It's better than just walking in. Service can be hit & miss unless you are placed at a table with Karishma (hope I spelled her name right). She is excellent. My daughter & I were first served by her while she was training and again at this visit. We will request her for future visits. She's friendly, fast and attentive with all her tables.
