Gyu-Kaku - Times Square Ratings and Reviews
Whenever we have visitors, Gyu-Kaku will always be on our list of choices to eat. I know they will never be disappointed with where I’m taking them. Don’t forget to try the Toro beef, melts in your mouth kind of meat! Always a very pleasant experience whenever we eat.
Very accommodating! My daughter is 10 months old and was sleeping in the stroller my husband and I wanted to have dinner here so they gave us a big table so we could fit the stroller in with us. I felt bad that we were clearly taking up a party table but they seemed to be fine with it so that my daughter could sleep. Our server Em was fantastic!! Very helpful and on top of everything. I would totally recommend this place!!! Ps. The food was awesome!!!
it was interesting to be told that for a reservation made for 7:00pm days in advance, that we would have to commit to leaving the table by 8:30. I've never experienced this before and was a bit surprised. However, I knew that once I sat down, we would finish when we finished and would leave when ready, so it really didn't make a difference.
However, they did start by trying to serve very, very quickly, but after being asked to slow down, they did and the rest of the evening went great. It was a unique dining experience, the server's recommendations about what to choose, and just as importantly, how much, were spot on. It would be very easy to over-order, so this was helpful and very welcome.
All in all, a fun, energetic spot that was a perfect destination for our daughter's 16th birthday.
I’ve been the Gyu-Kaku many times and it’s always been a great experience every time. Our server Angellie was great, she check up on my friend and myself to see if everything was ok. Food is great every time, absolutely love the garlic fried rice!!! Definitely would recommend this place to friends and family members.
We had a pre-theater dinner here for our anniversary, and glad we did. Lively, fun to cook your own, (in a specially designed grill in the center of the table that draws the smoke downward) and tasty food. Service was speedy and friendly. Don’t expect a quiet meal, though. Would be a great place for a birthday celebration (one was going on next to us).
Gyu-Kaku is a very energetic venue offering habachi grill foods , soup, noodle dishes and more.
Service is great. Our server Nutcha was careful to explain menu choices and how long to grill the meats, shrimp, chicken and vegetables. We took advantage of a first visit offer which included multiple course including miso soup, salad, Volcano roll,the grilled potion and dessert.
Gyu-Kaku is not a quiet place as music is playing . Hard to hold a conversation. Food though was enjoyable and we enjoyed the experience.
The bartender swapped my card with someone else. I came back and the manager told me she would call me to let me know if they found it. She never called. I had to call back the next morning and was told I should cancel my card. She didn’t even offer to comp my meal which was the LEAST she could do. I will not be coming back even though I did enjoy the food.
This was our second visit and we loved it. Both times were pre-theatre but this time we were also celebrating my daughter's 15th birthday. We all thoroughly enjoyed the meal, the service was excellent, and the rousing rendition of Happy Birthday performed by 5 or 6 staff members was a real treat. I highly recommend this place!
We really enjoyed eating here overall. We had a reservation for 5pm and arrived at 5:05, but we weren't seated for another 15 min. They were really busy so it was understandable. The only thing we didn't like was that the had the windows open and no AC on. We ended up sweating quite a bit, but they eventually shut the windows and it was okay.
They forgot our drinks until we were just about done with 2 reminders. Food consistently good. We will likely be back but was just a little disappointed this time around given the drink situation. Food come out quickly but in the wrong order. Hopefully next time will be more Impressive.
Such a good meal! On vacation, it's hard to get enough veggies, lean protein, etc., but not here! Excellent quality food and very nice casual atmosphere. A little slow and some appetizers came out at the time as the food, otherwise it would have been absolutely perfect.
