My partner and I have been coming to Gyu in Sherman Oaks for over 3 years now. We love it here and eat here probably two or three times a month on average. The reason we keep returning has a lot to do with the quality of the food and the professionalism, and friendliness of the employees at this establishment. We've been waited more than likely by every employee there and not once have we had a bad experience, it may have a lot to do with us being very mellow but it is something many other restaurants lack. When planning to come, definitely make a reservation or call and ask for the wait time. The parking is interesting, however, Valet is very inexpensive and well worth it!

This has been a neighborhood haunt/staple for as long as I've lived in the area. Even prior to my living in Sherman Oaks, I always went to Gyu-Kaku for the most amazing happy hour specials in town. Happy hours at the bar for lunch, or at a table for an early dinner are fantastic values. This is a chain that has earned a great reputation. The wait staff are super friendly. If you are new and get daunted by menu choices, they have a prefix menu for 2 or 4-6 people, or the server will be happy to help you out.

The appetizers are VERY tasty. You could make a meal out of them alone. Their meat selection is savory and I have yet to find something I don't like. Finish off your meal with a s'more on the life fire at the table!

Gyu-Kaku is a unique experience in a warm and friendly atmosphere. I find it to be a special (albeit retail) experience. I look forward to one day trying one of their other locations in Vegas and (especially) on Oahu in Hawaii!

Came out to Gyu Kaku Sherman Oaks on Friday night, overall myself and my lady friend had a great time. My intention was to go for the DineLA menu but I ended up opting for Happy Hour, by far the best decision I made. Food was plenty and great. Only knock about it was even with a reservation placed ahead of time, I did wait, thankfully it wasn’t long. Still have to consider the fact that it was indeed a FRIDAY NIGHT, overall I’d come back and do a repeat, with a reservation of course..
