La comida aceptable pero el servicio muy malo aceptan reservaciones hasta la 9 y cierran la cocina y la barra a las 9 y media y lo peor es que no te lo hacen saber y cuando pides tu recibo de pago te dicen que no tienen manera de imprimirlo. Pesimo no regreso y no lo recomiendo

Great food, one of my favorite restaurants. Service here was poor our waiter kept forgetting to bring our plates. I go to their flushing location more frequently their service is better and they all greet you once you go in.

Gyu Kaku is always a ton of fun. Service was excellent and attentive, and we had a great time! They no longer close the metal curtains between tables (I assume to help with airflow during Covid) which means it’s not as intimate as before, but we had a great time.

We were running late, and they were very accommodating. I really appreciated how well they handled the covid protocols. The wait staff was very helpful and attentive. The food was delicious. We, unfortunately, were in a rush due to theatre tickets, but still enjoyed a fun and tasty meal. We will definitely go back for a more leisurely dinner!

I love this restaurant because I can choose the ingredients and cook them myself. I get a variety of items and enjoy a meal at my own pace. The food is good quality and cooks relatively quickly. Highly recommended.

They recently changed the times for their happy hour. Someone from the restaurant called me to inform me of the change and asked if I would like to switch the time of my reservation.

It's fine, it's not completely perfect because we smell smoke when we got out unlike the other branches when we're done eating it's not like we came from a grilling restaurant. tho the service is good as well as the foods !

It was my mother and brother’s birthday, I was upset to know that although I reserved with open table, they could not find my reservation. And then to get an email from open table saying I didn’t show for my reservation when I showed up on time and paid a large amount of money

Gyu=Kaku is great because you can order the exact ingredients you like. Both the food and the service were excellent. I love their spicy cucumbers as an appetizer. Then I order sirloin steak, chicken thighs, and assorted vegetables to grill on the table. Very enjoyable.

La comida muy rica, nada grasosa. A pesar de que asamos la comida en la mesa, no hubo humo. La carne maravillosa. Recomiendo en el horario de Happy Hour. Sale más económico. Comimos tres por el precio de 110 dólares incluyendo postre y la propina (20%).

I like participatory dining and the bbq grill at Gyu-Kaku was a genuine blast and the food was delicious. The portions are generous and the staff very helpful. Price was the most reasonable we had in NYC.

After being harassed 3 times before getting to the table about the lateness policy (we were early) and 90 minute time limit, they forgot to bring 2 of the barbecue meat dishes and never deducted from the bill. I used to love this place but never, ever again.
