Gyu-Kaku - New York, NY | Times Square
Traditionally called Yakiniku, this Japanese barbecue spot is known for their delicious, fresh (never frozen), high-quality meats!
Enjoy an ice cold beer as you grill your own meat. Happy Hours offer the best deals on food and drinks, so be sure to wind down and get the night started right with us.
Everything was amazing! Lexa and Mari are amazing waitresses, very attentive and helpful. Can’t wait to go back!
First time with this experience if cooking on an open grill. It was great. All the food was delicious. My friends and I did the Ninja for 3 people and it was definitely worth every single dollar. Only thing, they gave a specific time to cook the meats but we had to cook ours a little longer due to preference so bear that in mind. Overall great and ready to go back!
Food is really good.Service needs to
It’s Valentine’s Day and Arturo was a great sever. All good came in ample time and he told time to review the menu. Great celebration dinner.
The service was the worst experience ever. Food was very good.
Firstly, we were seated right away, no wait at all. The service was great, everything was clearly explained to us, drinks came out quickly, and the food to follow. The food was excellent, we got "The Ninja" which is the recommended package for three people, and it was the perfect amount of food! The s'mores at the end were a fantastic way to end the meal. Highly recommended!
Food was good. Ninja package (for 3) was plenty of food for the 5 of us (3 adults, 2 tweens). The beef dishes were a highlight, calamari was also very good. The pork belly was super disappointing. Chicken just ok. Main issue was cleanliness. We had to replace our plates - one was greasy, one had seaweed from a prior meal still stuck onto it...The dipping sauce bottles were sticky. Everything just felt grimy and sticky, which is unfortunate since the food was good and the experience was otherwise fun.
Looking for a decent place to dine in Times Square is tough, so my expectations were really low. Most places are designed for mass tourism and it’s not really about being subtle. That place is not subtle. It’s messy, it’s kind of loud, atmosphere is like Applebee’s but Japanese BBQ version. That said, for the price, it’s really not bad food. It’s not outstanding but it does the good. I won’t be back but I don’t regret going either.
Food was great, big shout out to Patty our server. She was professional, remembered all our orders and answered our queries with warmth and smiles, unlike another colleague (short blonde streaked hair, sour face) who was abrupt and rude. Hope the management recognises Patty and what she does to make her guests feel welcome.
Unfortunately we found plastic in our melted cheese which they replaced and did t charge for but was pretty weird after that.
Great food, Excellent service.
COMPLETELY DISGUSTING I WATCHED A SERVER POUR LEFT OVER WATER BACK INTO A POT AND SERVED IT TO OTHER PATRONS NASTY I WILL NEVER RETURN
I’ve been to Gyu Kaku a couple of times and each time has been amazing. This time was to celebrate the graduation of my boyfriend. I reserved a table in advance and I’m so glad I did because it was BUSY at 8 PM on a Tuesday. It was me, my partner, and two of his friends. We were seated quickly and serviced swiftly. The staff were very nice, skilled, prompt and professional. The food was AMAZING! I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a group outing or for a special occasion. You will NOT be disappointed. Also recommend downloading the app to save points!
Never disappointing! Delicious grilled meats and fair prices especially during happy hour! Try to get there before 6pm! Half off my favorite sake!!
The garlic chicken noodles are amazing! I was resistant because of the whole low carb blah blah blah but so happy we ordered it!!
Highly recommend happy hour since the prices are more reasonable.
Happy Hour meals are delicious and plentiful. Especially the sets but be careful, 3x my friends and I thought we ordered just enough but found that it was just too much...
Fantastic restaurant, one of my favs!
The happy hour dinner for two was wonderful. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable.
Always a pleasure my favorite spot
I always have a great time at Gyu Kaku because the food is amazing and it’s a fun experience overall. My waiter was a bit rude this time so that wasn’t great but overall everything was awesome.
We loved it here!! If you’ve been to a korean or japanese bbq before, then you’d know what to expect. If not, be prepared for it to seem a bit busy as servers are constantly bringing out food for patrons to grill up. Definitely would come back again!!
Food came out fast and accurate everything was just how I wanted will be coming back soon
Ottimo ristorante mangiato bene
I preferred the upper west side location. The service and food here wasn’t as good.
Fantastic Japanese style bbq
Excellent restaurant.. I love Gyu-Kaku meat lovers combo. Me and my wife really enjoy japanese BBQ Grill..
Just found out that they updated the Happy Hour drink menu and my favorite Sake, Dassai is no longer at Gyukaku. Dassai is the one of the superior Sake, and is so disappointed. Not sure why.
Great meal and experience. Staff were super helpful.
Great place for a large group! Celebrated with friends and family. Always a good time!
The experience at Gyu-Kaku was great. As soon as we got there they received us and seated us, we had a reservation. The waitress Maribeth was amazing, really attentive and always making sure we were good. The food was great would definitely recommend and come back to this place. Loved it !!
They have happy hours when everything is a bit cheaper. However because I arrived 5 minutes earlier the waiter do not included my orders at the happy hour price.
Great service, food good but grill didnt cook food fast enough kept having to adjust it and for a party of six kept us hungry. Probably better experience with party of 4 max per grill table.
It was a fantastic love to eat and it was our first dinner here in NYC, if possible will try return before I depart. Fabulous steak selections and finally tried wagyu
Never went to a Japanese barbecue restaurant but it was an amazing experience. The staff was so friendly and the food so delicious. The best Christmas lunch ever!
It's a delicious meal and an awesome experience. The service was excellent too.
Yummy food , great staff. Good for families and pre theatre dinners
Great food and service!! A little pricy (considering you cook yourself!) but worth every once in awhile.
